Yeah, believe it or not this is not an anime with some deep meaning (at least, not yet) and of course not an anime that is planning to win a prize in storytelling. Without a specific time, full of “fighting scenes, action, great characters (each one with a specific story, that will never make you tired), the real star in this series is… The Food.
If you have ever felt a type of “ecstasy” when you eat something special, then this anime is the completely representation of that fascination an explainable feeling of joy, enjoyment and sometimes lust, that provide the taste of something awesome. To be honest is linking food with our most basic drives; something so natural and almost never used, that this is what it makes great this anime.
Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma… Food and SEX, may I have your attention, now?
The series follows Soma’s adventures from his family’s restaurant, which his father closed in order to travel and cook abroad, while he is enroll to the prestigious and highly elite Totsuki Culinary Academy. Because of the silent and healthy competition that Soma has with his father, he decided to accept the challenge of being in this Academy just to win to his father’s skills… without knowing the amount of interesting and ferocious students that are going to compete with him, to be the best of the best.
With colorful characters who are going to try to destroy Soma, this is a series that no matter how you watch it, food is more important than characters… but anyway, there’s no doubt that is very fun to watch and if you love cooking… you can certainly glean some new ideas from the foods presented, which are real cuisines from around the world.
No matter what, you will have a lot of laughs.
