We finally meet Erina, one of the two main girls pictured with Souma in the OP. Although I wonder who that buffed up old man at the end of the episode was. And its already a given that Souma will be admitted, its just how that's what we will have to find out next week, I guess.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to give out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.

No contest, literally every girl in the series is better than Erina, even Alice.

I don't really see what's so good in Erina. Bad attitude, misjudging, and "almighty". The worst recipe. But I see why she is so popular. Violent and "sexy" girls seem to appeal to lot of people.

No wonder Erina reacting like that by Souma Food, because recipe of food that Souma presented is develop by some one that Erina really respect.

More foodgasms haha. And they make all that cooking feel epic because of all the orchestral music. Kinda reminds me of the potato chip eating scene on death note.

Well that old man is must be Erina's grandfather. I think we know what will happen next.

How are they going to keep up this hype of every food taste throughout the whole season? its going to, no, its already predictable and rather annoying.
The food and cooking info is interesting though even if I have no use for it myself.
Wish there was less actually echii and more food porn.
I say "I'm speechless" to tell you I want to say something though am not sure how...

Have people read the original source to be complaining?...

*sigh*, why can't people see something for fun instead of being complaining all the time.

anyway, that was great, Souma teasing Erina. And that yuri moment too.

I'll judge Erina based only in the anime since I don't know the LN/M. I think her purpose is to have both a rival and love interest for Souma. She fits for that role IMHO. And she's hot and I find her attitude cute.

I prefer Gordon Ramsay as foul-mouthed Brit over him as a busty tsundere though


Yeah, a Gordon Ramsay like character appears later on the series. He isn't British of course, but he's got the violent attitude.

Erina is the worst kind of tsundere I don't think she should even be put on that category. She should have a bitch category of her own.

Glad they keep the foodgasm scene to the minimum here. Mini Souma was slightly amusing but I'm still waiting for something that would make my tummy hurts from laughing like Yakitate. People getting naked all the time over Souma's food is boring.

This episode was better than the first one at least, but the fanservice is still cringeworthy.
And wow, Erina is one hell of annoying girl.

I'm just plain not a fan of ecchi so the food reaction scenes are hella awkward and unnecessary to me.

Love the character introductions though.

I really didn't like the first episode, but second episode has made me start to like it and look forward to it. Reading here, very glad to know the ecchi tones down and the story gets more competitive.

Pretty much this.

The ecchi was actually less in this episode than the previous which was good, but I couldn't help but FF through the Erina foodgasm scene..
My mom almost caught me watching that >_>

Anyway, I'm more interested because of this episode, art animation and soundtrack are amazing.
Looking forward to the next episode.

I have a feeling I will like the guy with the trunk and the one with the apron xD
Erina is awesome too, I wanna see her develop and accept that Soma's food is great :3

Um, how does 1 or 2 panels at most compare to like 30 seconds of animation? The manga is not more sexual, what are you talking about? The anime is by far more sexual. Boobs weren't jiggling up and down and there wasn't constant shots of girls' asses in the manga.


Seriously? Yeah because a feather (censor) over her P is just so tame. Here I've highlighted some points for you.

I want you to compare
with

and you tell me which one is overdoing the fanservice. I don't see a closeup of her breasts or her ass where they take up almost the entirety of the frame in the manga nor are there breasts jiggling up and down like in the anime. There is clearly a difference. I would also note that she is only 15 years old.

Just like the manga.

Of course the foodgasms feel longer, if they weren't animated they would just be still images and that would look cheap. Just comes with the medium.

If you know the artist, it should be no surprise... I'd also argue that the close-ups make it less lewd, because it's more lewd when you can see more of the body at once. But that's just me.

I'm more concerned over the leisurely pacing, we're like 1:1 right now, where will the anime end?

Eh, I'm really liking this show, but even as one who doesn't particularly care one way or the other for ecchi genre itself, I can't help but feel as though the ecchi scenes are extremely unnecessary from time to time. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving the cooking elements etc., but was it really necessary to have a bunch of chibi angelic versions of the mc molest Erina's breasts (and other parts...)??? It isn't like they have offended my sensibilities (what sensibilities) or anything of the sort, but it just takes up screen time that could have been used much more effectively, or it takes up a scene where they could have been more creative with expressing the foodgasm etc. Does every single foodgasm have to exude sensuality, or couldn't they vary the reactions? Not every dish is the same after all. I mean, it is obviously called a foodgasm for a reason, but like most people have probably noticed, you don't have orgasms when eating food. You may feel elated, delighted, fulfilled, complete, gross, etc. Thus, there are a wide variety of reactions that can be had, but realistically I doubt an orgasm is one of them... of course it is an anime so some degree of this is perfectly acceptable. Just... every single time is way too excessive
In the end, while it may have been in the manga, that doesn't mean it is a part that has to be adapted. Hell, they could have just toned it down or something, I would have been fine with that. The scene where she was being breast fed, however, was hilarious. Definitely liking the show, but disliking some parts of it; so, it is about upper mid pack imo for the anime this season. Hopefully in the upcoming episodes that changes cause I really had my hopes up for a fantastic cooking anime. Looks like it will be another pretty good anime at this point, but we'll see.

TL;DR -> Foodgasms can be a bit excessive and they need more variety to the reactions to the food, but overall a funny and very entertaining show.

Te thing is that she basically doesn't fit both. Souma's real rival(That will come later in the series) are way better than her and his love interest is definitely not her from how the mangaka chose to write the story, it's someone else and she isn't even main girl so that's why I'm pissed at how J.C Staff made it look in the Op like she was main girl.

They adapted 2 chapters this episode and last episode, they adapted one but last episode was one chapter of 49 pages and chapter 2 and 3 were 24 pages so they are adapted 1:2.

But the thing is that the only place where they can possibly end this season if this is one cour is at Chapter 35 so at this pace, they can't make it so they will definitely speed it up.

If the first appearance of Erina right after Jouichirou says that the secret to becoming a good chef is finding a woman "that will make you want to give all the food you make to her" isn't enough for you, I'm not sure what is. Considering that Erina is the top student in the entire school shows that she would ultimately have to be the one that Souma has to beat to be the new top student. Erina also fully acknowledges Souma's food as good, but refuses to accept it out of her own pride and dislike for Souma's background and cocky attitude during the entry exam.
Also, there has been no hint at Souma's own love interest as of yet, only girls that have shown a love interest towards him.

HOLY SHIT THE ADAPTION IS SO FAITHFUL
I'm in love. I've been looking forward to this for such a long time but the adaption actually blew me away. I wasn't keeping my hopes up because what if it turned out shitty and low budget?? But I was worrying for nothing, it's great so far.
I'm just excited for Takumi to show up. Megumi and Erina are both too archetypal imo, but I love NIKUMI. Actually liked Erina in this episode though, surprisingly enough even though I normally hate bitchy tsunderes like her.

The fanservice is a little over the top but I'm pretty sure it'll be toned down soon enough. Not bothered by it too much because it's funny.
