Takumi no Shitamachi Kassen
Following the end of the exhausting training camp, brothers Takumi and Isami Aldini spend their holiday sightseeing Tokyo Tower and its surroundings. While learning about the local culture and tasting various dishes, the two encounter Megumi Tadokoro, Ryouko Sakaki, and Yuuki Yoshino, who all happened to be touring the area as well. The group decides to have lunch together at a traditional Japanese restaurant—where an unexpected food duel is set to take place.

Natsuyasumi no Erina
Tootsuki students are hard at work experimenting with dishes for the Autumn Elections during the summer break; but for Erina Nakiri, her preparations for the event are already complete. Just as she dwells on what to do with her free time, she receives an invitation to the public pool from her cousin Alice. Despite her initial hesitation, Erina takes the opportunity to broaden her horizons and explore what this seemingly ordinary summer activity has to offer. Meanwhile, the members of the Polar Star Dormitory kick off a small party at a nearby lake to cool off and enjoy themselves before the Autumn Elections.

This 2 OVAs deserve higher score. This time the MC is not Soma, but Aldini's brothers and Erina. Characters well-rounded, faithful to the series. I love Takumi, he is one of my favorite characters, and I love seeing his cooking with his brother. As italian, I think it's impossibile not liking Aldini's brothers. Honestly I want to see more of Takumi, seeing him cook and above all SPEAK ITALIAN is wonderful. I also loved Erina's ova, I like the development she is having. PS. Takumi seems in love with Soma😂 You will enjoy it cuz funny and good story as always.

This OVA for Shokugeki no Souma consists of two episodes that are not related to each other and aren't relevant to the main storyline. The first episode is about the Aldini brothers and can be watched at any time after episode 14. The second episode is mostly about Nakiri Erina but also doubles as swimsuit episode and should probably be watched after episode 19 but it's not the end of the world if you watch it later.

The small stories are okay but not as interesting/exciting as the main storyline of the anime so it makes sense they were released as OVA instead. Both of ...

Turns out the fat Aldini brother is a huge weeb. The first OVA gives us some more backstory and character development for the Aldini's in general. I like the two characters. I think it's funny how he wants desperately to be the shounen rival character but is clearly playing second Piccolo to Erina's Vegeta, and how his brother is just there to laugh at him. The dynamic changes a bit when he's not in fat mode and the show treats him like less of a joke, but none of that's on display here.

The second episode is just your standard OVA fare with a water park ...
