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!!!
