So far so good (other than CGI Kuga's minions). With this season being 24 episodes, J.C. Staff must be assuming the manga's in its endgame. I mean, from where I personally left off in it, that definitely seems to be the case. But then I stay calm and remember manga such as Prison School.

The season 2 OVAs were just subbed a moment ago. I highly recommend watching them, or at least the second one since that's the one that's relevant to the start of this latest episode.

At least there's some enjoyable trash this Fall.

Glad to have this back. Unfortunately, I'm not quite a fan of spicy food; so that Mapo Tofu dish didn't do much for me. Perhaps I've just haven't had a delicious spicy dish. Most of the spicy dish I've eaten, I've only tasted the spiciness and nothing else. For example, last month I tried a spicy Korean pork dish. On that dish, I couldn't even taste the meat. Perhaps I'll give another go on spicy food this weekend.

On a side note, I'm liking Tsukasa already. Also helps that he's voiced by and reminds me of Zura.

Super psyched that Food Wars is back in business! I see that MAL doesn't have an episode count, but I also heard it was going to be 24 episodes (OP helps support this). I'm only as far as the Volume 20, but I can't wait to see a lot of stuff animated. \

Good ole Soma rushing into things without taking two seconds to look into things.

Episode 2

Soma sure is asking for it by setting his booth up by Kuga's while cooking the same thing, but he's always up for the challenge no matter the odds. He gets Erina and Hisako to taste test, and as expected it's lacking in kick that the ma-la-wei gives off. So he tries back at the dorm, and while he made something extra spicy, it's just spicy and nothing else. So after lots of preparation, the festival is about to begin, and it should really be something to see what Soma had come up with after all that preparation. There's the Taiwanese black pepper bun, and then we shall see what kind of mapo tofu dish he cooked up.

Definitely more of a buildup episode.

It's great to see Alice again though. I never get tired of seeing her appearance in this series. For the cuisine, I think Erina's advice to Souma is important. Hope he can remember that about the spicy food. They're still giving the Elite 10 cameo appearances...

Now the ED theme song has more of them. I just can't wait untl a particular girl begin to take a more prominent role this season.

You know, they talk about this 'spicy' stuff so much that it just amazes me. The 'Sichuan' kid's cooking would taste like shit to me, and would be entirely inedible.

Megumi was so damned adorable this episode. So were Alice and Ikumi.

I like how there is a little bit of a slower pace so far too. I thought this episode would cut right through the end of the festival. Glad we have some more to go.

I can't wait to see what all these kids are up to.

Overall with FW in general, my major gripe is the cast is so large and intriguing that I always want to know what's going on with people other than Soma.But, that's a good thing I guess.

@gornotck I'm not a fan of spicy food either, especially if it overpowers what it is meant to be accentuating - may as well make it into a solution and drink it alone!

Alice is always amusing.
I don't think Soma can beat Kuga on cooking skill alone (he'll at least need some tactics), but he'll make a profit of course. I do crave one of those buns, and I work near a china town... *wipes drool*

Is it just me or does Takumi and Kurokiba have slightly different hair this season?

Aw! I know its not a main focus, but I really wanted to see Shokugeki between Nikumi and Nao. Not only were the boxing images hype, but their match would be so intriguing with the immensely different cooking specialties. I hope we get OVAs in the future of non-main characters having Shokugekis or their own mini-arcs (as spin-offs or OVAs). This series has too many fun characters for its run time.

Soma's friends are really helping him out. The session with the Nakiris and Hisako was informative yet not boring. Always liked that Soma absorbs knowledge from any possible source. Then, there's the issue of logistics. If Soma had manned his booth alone, I think he would have overextended himself. Thankfully, Megumi stepped up and helps him in this battle. With their history together, this was a natural development. I'm curious as to their choice of black pepper bun. I haven't had it myself so I don't know the taste. I imagine that the bun is made to counter Kuga, but how? I would guess that it has a hidden side-effect of soothing mouths, that were scorched by the spicy Mapo Tofu.

On a side note, Yamashita Daiki cracks me up. His recent characters tend to be big fanboys. From Mitsuru in this show, to Deku in My Hero Academia, and Onoda from Yowamushi Pedal.

It looks like instead of trying to compete by burning out the senses of the customers, like Sichuan boy, he's going to just make great tasting food that is fast, simple, and tends to be bought in large batches.
