Having completed their Stagiaire assignments, the residents of Polar Star Dormitory and their friends visit a hot springs inn. Though they planned on relaxing, these young chefs step up to the plate when the inn's entire kitchen staff suffer accidents. Unbeknownst to them, they will not be cooking for any ordinary patrons.

Sometime after this trip, Souma Yukihira's desire for worthy opponents is stoked when he, Megumi Tadokoro, and the other Autumn Election quarter-finalists are invited to the annual Autumn Leaves Viewing event. The eight Tootsuki freshmen have a special opportunity to enjoy tea with the Elite Ten Council—including the Tenth Seat Erina Nakiri, who participates alongside her first-year classmates. Though it is framed as a friendly introduction between nine promising underclassmen and nine prestigious upperclassmen, Director Senzaemon Nakiri sees this meeting for what it is: a first encounter between the current reigning elite and their eventual usurpers.

Tiny spoilers ahead.

Compared to the first OVA which was more or less two side stories that aren't that important these two episodes are in my opinion a must-watch before starting season 3.

Story-wise, as I said, it's an essential watch in order to fully grasp some characters and motivations ...

I can't believe I haven't seen these! It's a little late to be reviewing these two episodes, but I'm gonna give it a quick go.

I had a lot of fun watching these episodes. One of them was the classic hot springs episode you often get with this type of genre, and that'll always be something I'm happy to watch. Food Wars! has an amazing cast of characters written into it. Each one of them comes off as so unique and colorful, so getting to see an episode where everyone could just hang out, relax, compete with each other, and have an all around good time ...

Well these two ova were fun to watch and the enjoyment is guaranteed.

The first ova is your typical hot springs trip, where a lot of misunderstandings happen. Beside the top notch fanservice our characters also have a little cooking contest where Erina fulfills her duty as the God Tongue . The comedy is also good i found myself laughing at the end of it so it's worth a watch.

The second ova is really a must watch because it's the premise before season 3 and it will help you understand what happened if you haven't read the manga. It focuses on the introduction of the ...
