Ever since he was a child, fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family’s restaurant as its head chef.
Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its “Shokugeki” or “food wars,” where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns.
As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test.

I liked food wars. Each episode was interesting and every single reaction to eating is entertaining to watch. The show is able to keep things competitive and interesting with a variety of cool challenges and things to spice it up! The huge cast of characters is entertaining and the shounen formula applied to cooking is really fun to witness. It all ends with the characters being launched into a tournament arc that starts the next season. Watch season 1, I’ll talk about season 2 later.
