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.

I don't think Food Wars needed an ova since it didn't really explain much or anything, but it was fun to watch at least. Expect some of the same over the top reactions from the series and you'll enjoy this still.

The first episode is just some of the characters going on a site seeing trip and trying some traditional Japanese food since most of them are not Japanese native. This leads to a decent food challenge towards the second half. The second episode has Alice and Erina going to a public pool on a hot day and the Polar star crew ...

Very tiny spoilers ahead.

This OVA is non-essential to the plot, so unless you just want more Shokugeki you can just skip to the second season.

Nonetheless, I highly recommend it, it's good fun and it does have a tiny bit of character development for some side characters like the Aldini brothers.

Otherwise, the quality is the same as the first season in all other aspects, it's just that the story itself isn't in any way significant to the plot.

It's a very interesting watch if you're interested in seeing more of the side characters of the show, since Souma himself barely appears in these two episodes (in the ...

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 ...
