Shokugeki no Soma Review

Finally, it’s my chance to do this review. The final episode delay was driving me insane. Anyways, this anime took cooking, enjoying high class food to the next level. I would always question myself as I watch the series, ‘am I watching anime or porn?’ The answer would always be anime. The mangaka that draws the series, Saeki Shun-sensei also draws Hentai. (Go google it) That explains the explicit foodgasms in the series.

Shokugeki no Soma tells the story of Yukihira Soma , our protagonist-kun who dreams of surpassing his father, Yukihira Joichiro in cooking. But, just as he graduated from middle school; his father closes down the family diner as he got an international job. Soma was then had to attend a prestigious culinary school, Totsuki Gakuen where as only 10% of the students survived. Through out his days at Totsuki, Soma made a few friends and frenemies. Next, the animation was a-okay for me; everything is just magnifique. The recipes were so influential until I wanted to try make a few dishes whereas I am also scared of burning down my new house. The music the staffs used were great! I love the first ED, Spice. The lyrics reflected to my favorite character, Tadokoro Megumi well.

Minami’s favorites

Favorite Male Characters

  1. Shinomiya Kojirou

Shinomiya senpai Honestly, I don’t want to put him in my list since I harbor a like and dislike for this character. I even gave him the nickname , ‘Gordon Ramsay of SnS’. But, his dishes were great. French Cuisine, a cuisine I haven’t tried yet…

2. Kurokiba Ryo

Kurokiba At first, I was expecting Tsuda Kenjiro to voice him since TsudaKen had a rough voice which would be suitable for Ryo’s personality. Ryo, he is amusing. He may look laid back, but he is pretty good in cooking, especially seafood.

3. Hayama Akira

hayama The reason why I am in to the series, he had a nose that should be illegal and I predicted Suwabe-san would be voicing him and I was RIGHT! Although Hayama is my favorite in overall, but his dishes are my personal dislikes. I can’t eat spicy food… Q w Q

Favorite Female Characters

  1. Tadokoro Megumi

megumi She maybe clumsy, a scardy cat. But, she had a strong will for passing Totsuki with flying colors. Megumi is also the closest to Soma since she is always his victim for his disgusting squid recipes.

2. Nakiri Alice

alice Tsunderina’s devious cousin, Alice is my favorite Nakiri. She is fun and do not underestimate her. She have yet to show her potential.

3. Nakiri Erina

Eri Tsunerina, she maybe high up but… She also needs to learn how to be humble. I enjoyed seeing her getting flushed over Soma and how she refuses to acknowledge him.

I hope next year there will be a season 2!!! I want more Hayama and the rest of the current elite 10!!!

Tokyo Ghoul + Tokyo Ghoul √ A Review

Imagine a world where the entire human race is threaten by human like creatures that eats humans as food and they are unaware of those creature were lurking around them. Awaken as a half ghoul after a near death experience with a ghoul, Kaneki Ken needs to cope and learn the ways of a ghoul and keep his identity as a ghoul a secret. That is what the world of Tokyo Ghoul is portrayed as. Dubbed as the best anime of 2014, I finally sucked up the ‘guts’ to watch this series. But, don’t expect me to watch Shingeki no Kyojin though.   I can say this series perked up my interest after I encounter fanfictions about this series on DeviantART and my subconscious won’t let me watch it cause it was ‘too mainstream’ and my cosplay inner goddess would add the characters from the series into my almost deserted cosplay plans. Enough bullshitting and, let’s get down to business.

The story plot for both TG & TG √ A  were both interesting and I was really drawn to the animation style. It was really illuminating with the design of various Kangune and Quinques. I was amazed that how the production staff could pull out such an amazing job for the animation and story boarding. Next, I am a bit shocked that my two A list seiyuus did the impossible. Kana Hanazwa & Miyano Mamoru made me jaws dropped with their characters in the series. I always though Kana would be the shy and bubbly kind of seiyuu; namingly she voices characters that are kind hearted. But, her performance as Rize really made me see another side of her. Maybe, I should pay more attention to her… As for Mamocchi, his semi perverted side came out. I wanted to laugh at his antics as Shuu but, I couldn’t. He is too awesome. Thirdly, the music for the series were superb!!! I got the opening Unravel stuck both in my head and phone. The production staff really impressed me. 😀

Minami’s Favorites

   Ok, I’m getting organized here. If I’m ever doing another new series; this will be a format that I would use. It will help me be more systematic.

Favorite Assholes Ghouls

These are my human eating, assholes that I like.

  1. Nishio NishikiNishikiAsshole no.1 everyone’s asshole.  He maybe somewhat sleazy but, he is a nice guy deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp down. I liked him before I even officially watch TG.
  2. Kirishima Ayato Ayato Asshole no.2 , he is literally an asshole to me, acting all cocky and stuff. I only liked him because he was voiced by Kaji Yuki, one of the reason why I was going to watch TG in the first place.
  3. Tsukiyama Shuu  Tsukiyama Asshole no.3 , the Kaneki obsessed maniac. I’d lie if I denied that he is one of my approved characters. He is just so amusing saving the ‘I want to taste Kaneki’ shit. Overall, he’s okay.

  Favorite Investigators

  1. Amon Kotaro Amon He’s determined, slightly confused with the world… ; A ; Why is Ishida-sensei so cruel?!
  2. Arima KishouKishouArima My Papa-in-law. My friend made a joke about how Arima is Midorima’s father since they both look alike. Lol~ And, Midorima from KnB is my favorite character. Thus, he is my papa-in-law.
  3. Suzuya Juuzo Suzuya TBH, I thought this guy was a ghoul at first. Since he looks like one . He’s a psychotically cute boy~

TG Jack is coming out end of this month! I can’t wait, although the main would be my papa-in-law.

2) Taniyama Kisho

13108671465_500d451b34  I was shocked to discover that he was a rock singer when I was exposed to his existence from Uta no Prince-sama series. I am a HUGE fan of GRANRODEO because of him. //Shot
