Food Wars (Shokugeki no Soma) was a series that I didn’t want to watch at first. My cousin kept saying watch it. Finally I did and omg, Loved it!!
Food wars follows a boy named Sōma Yukihira who grew up in his father, Jōichiro Yukihira’s restaurant. His father taught him all about cooking and they would compete against each other in cooking battles. Every time Sōma would lose. Hahah One day Sōma’s father receives a job to cook abroad and around the world. So he closes shop and then enrolls Sōma in to an elite culinary school where only 10% of students manage to graduate. Here at this school Sōma meets many student who are all skilled at cooking. Many of them each specializing in something specific for cooking such a meat, curry, Italian cuisine and etc. While in the school the kids are faced with many cooking challenges and battles as well. You witness Sōma developing as a chef and reaching his goal of becoming better than his father one day.
The thing I liked about this anime is the action with food. The battles between the chefs were top notch. The food looked so amazing. They stated the ingredients they used so I swear I can cook now. Lol
The characters were hilarious and very different. I loved Sōma because he is a hero you want to root for. You are always looking forward to the next thing he is going to cook. You are also hoping he wins every time.
Season 2 is part of the summer lineup. It’s called Food Wars : Shokugeki no Sōma The second plate. I am super stoked because I want to continue on this journey with Sōma of him becoming the top chef ever.
