Food wars – Second Plate (Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara) is everything I excepted. Season one was really good but season 2 definitely stepped it up. The competition has gotten intense to the Max!
Episode 7 was round 2 of the semi finals between two great chefs Ryō Kurokiba and Akira Hayama. Akira who is a master in curry and spices, his sense of smell and aroma is like no other. Ryō who is a ruthless dictator with his cooking and is a specialist in seafood . This was one of the greatest battles ever. The competition theme was a “western style dish”. Ryō decided to cook an eel dish. Akira cooked a duck dish. After the intense cooking the judges had to decide who will win. At the end the judges couldn’t decide between the two. So they both moved on to the final round to face off against Sōma who won his battle against Subaru
The final round will have Ryō, Akira and Sōma all cooking off against each other. Now my three favorite characters are battling and I can’t decide who I want to root for. Ughhh the theme for their battle is to create a dish using the Pacific Saury fish.
In episode 8 you see the three chefs going to the fish market to pick out their Pacific Saury to start testing their dishes. Sōma realizes how inexperienced he is next to these two chefs. But we all know how Sōma can pull through and create something out of this world.
I can not wait for the next few episodes. I know this battle will be intense. Again I don’t know who to root for. But either way I will be happy.
If you are watching who do you think will win? Or who do you want to win?
