OK, what the hell did I just watch?

I like the idea of a show based on cooking battles but those foodgasms were ridiculous - way over the top.

I am so disappointed... I expected way more from this anime.

First off I am a big fan of the manga (9/10) but the first episode didn't impressed me much.

The animations are lackluster in comparison with the manga which feels more impact-full and vibrant.

The bgm/soundtracks whatever you wanna call is just sucks. I feel it was over-dramatized. It sounded like a soundtrack of a epic sword fight like Bleach instead of a cooking battle.

Voice acting was great except for the the fact that they choose
Matsuoka, Yoshitsugu for Yukihara Souma's voice... I think he fits characters like Bell from DanMachi or Kirito and Watase Aoba more. You know, those softhearted kind of characters.

Souma to me feels like a bad-ass that you dont mess around with. However in the anime he doesn't have that kinda of impact because of Matsuoka, Yoshitsugu voice that doesn't have that kind of feel to it.

Seeing Souma actions/reactions and character is what drives the manga I hope his VA gets better and the soundtrack and animations or il will probably drop this and just stick to the manga.

tl;dr
6/10
Not terrible but it doesn't live up to the manga + the main character VA does a terrible job voicing/expressing the character.

YYYYYYYYYYESSSSSSSSS! Shokugeki no Souma to take Spring season by STORM! The episode was simply brilliant! The foodgasms were right on and Matsuoka suits Souma just fine despite my edginess from the previews. ヽ(´∇`)ノ BANZAI!

The opening is nice and the ending is sooo catchy! Definitely can't wait for the next episode! ^^

Are you serious? This was ridiculous! Do they really think an anime is entertaining and good if there are exaggerated ecchi scenes everywhere? Really? This is utterly unbelievable. I'm really disappointed of the first episode. I'm not going to watch something like that.

Not a manga reader here. I was hoping the Ecchi tag wouldn't be full blown on this show... Boy was I wrong. For shows like this, I would prefer there to be less of it, but hey... W/e. 7/10 first impression due to the intensity in the cooking.

That was a great start, as I expected from this anime.
All I can say is everything was amazing, fucking amazing. The OP and ED was stucked in my head, its so catchy.

This shouldn't be called Food Wars, it should be called Food Porn.

Well done J.C. Staff.

That was so ridiculous. I kind of liked how over-the-top it was though. But I can see it being repetitive in the future, here's to hoping the story will prevent that.

Reaction anybody for the first episode of Shokugeki on Soma? But don't reveal the episode content though to avoid spoilers, only say what you think about the VA, the animation of the characters and of course the FOOD!!!

Seriously though, the first episode cover only the first chapter, AWESOME!!!

Why its awesome? cause I hate FILLERS!

This was a FANTASTIC first episode of Shokugeki no Soma! Based J.C. Staff, they actually did an amazing adaptation of the manga so far. The foodgasm scenes were done perfectly, very erotic, hot and over-the-top sexy. :D Souma's badass scenes were also really cool, along with the great OST. However, we have to talk about how DELICIOUS the food looks. My goodness, makes me want to drool so much. Great start, and can't wait for more! Seeing Erina at the end was a good tease. ;) I really like the OP, very upbeat and it has some great scenes of future characters. The ED is really catchy, and funny to see everyone like naked and having the foodgasms. Oh man, I'm so glad Shokugeki no Soma's anime is finally here, this is gonna be a good ride. :D

I liked how JC Staff didn't town down the foodgasms, and instead embraced it fully.

Yeah, I was so excited about this that I've forgotten about the fact that someone have already started a discussion about the first episode. Oh well, that was how awesome the first episode for me. J.C. Staff have done a good job on its adaptation

Thought I wouldn't enjoy it going in, but I was a wrong.

The fanservice didn't even bother me that much surprisingly.

Alright, were we even watching the same show?
Also, Erina is far from a tsundere, though I do agree on you in that she's a bitch.
Oh come on, don't act as if cooking has anything to do with why anyone likes this show. It's just a shitty gimmick and setting the mangaka uses to do shitty ecchi scenes. Yes it's cliche.
Looks like the search for an actual cooking anime is still on.

Why some of you even comparing Koukufu with Souma? Asides of food and foodgasm, they are entirely different series.

Just think of it as a light appetizer and you have the real meat after that.

If J.C. Staff is going manage to maintain the quality every week, this anime is going to be a big hit. The manga is already successful.

The foodgasm is here! And I see they don't hold back at all lol
If they can keep this level of quality, we are in for a treat!

I enjoyed it, just what I expected from the first episode. Although the OP is a bit... lacking? But pretty sure it will grow on me later on.

They already showed Erina here, really thought they would save it until the next episode.

Looking forward for the next episode :)

I'm assuming you haven't read the manga.
That's okay, you're free to speak whatever you say about this, but hear me out on this: Cooking in this series can actually get pretty deep and the competitions just shows how intense and how serious it can be. Sure fanservce is that sidedish and makes up most of the foodgasms, but that's not entirely the point.
As the story progresses, such as competitions and gimmick battles, the actual 'cooking' aspect is going to be more heavily focused on and much less on the fanservice.

Lol that was so much more intense than in the manga XD Fun and hilarious intro. That ED was kind of weird though but I guess in spirit of the manga.

Based Yonetani, this is the same guy who directed GaoGaiGar, Brigadoon, and Betterman.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

J.C. Staff has done it again!

The cooking scene of the roast pork was epic. Then the foodgasms, oh lordy xD.
This series is definitely gonna be a fun one to watch.
