Addicted to Curry begins with a young schoolgirl named Sonezaki Yui. One day she encounters what looks like a half dead man in the middle of the road. Not knowing what to do she throws some food at him (so he can at least survive) and runs away. She then returns to her home, which is also her father's Ganesha Curry restaurant. The man who Yui encountered was Koenji Makito, who knew Yui's father Souichiro and was actually looking for him. Following Yui's scent Koenji finds her and the restaurant. Yui initially thinks Koenji is going to kill her for throwing food at him, but after they talk she finds out that he knew her father. Koenji then finds out that the restaurant is going out of business and that Yui's father go on journey to improve his curry cooking techniques. To repay Yui's father for helping him out Koenji decides to team up with Yui to save the curry restaurant.

This a good very good detailed food manga, for those interested in that kinda thing, although it deals with only curry related foods 80% of the time. I can see where Shokugeki no Soma "borrowed" many things from this manga.
Funny interesting characters overall though later on the manga adds too many (like so many other mangas of this type)
Has some RomCom in it, with your pervert type main character and many panty shots type ecchi, though it isn't the whole point of the series, but be warned.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (15/534 eps)
To be blunt, Addicted to Curry has a very mediocre plot, rounded off with forgettable (but not unlikeable) characters and slightly above average art. In all honesty, I feel that it merits a 5/10,but I gave it a rating of 6/10 because of my soft spot for food/cooking manga.

Why didn't Addicted to Curry manage to hold my interest?

Preliminary (38/534 eps)
Let's get to some bashing! First of all this manga had a GTO (Great teacher onizuka) vibe for me so i endured for whole 38 chapters (534 chapters all in all). THE only redeemable fact in this manga is curry recipes!. As for GTO thing i felt like author tried to create something like GTO but creating absurd idiocy doesn't equal GTO he created something that made me feel uncomfortable reading.
BTW i liked shokugeki no soma (but too much ecchi i agree)

Below all Overall i will write spoiler filled with chapter description bashing starting from chapter 25 i started taking notes in order not to ...
