Episode 2

Next matchup is Megumi vs. Ryo with the theme being ramen. Ryo is going for broke with the wide noodles and rich broth, and Megumi counters by using the ingredients she got from home to make a light broth. And in the face of pressure, Megumi stays calm seeing that her dish requires so much precision. Ryo's dish is super flavorful that is adopted from a French soup recipe. As for Megumi, she uses kozoyu using scallops to turn a local flavor into ramen. That was quite a match there, but at the moment it's too close to call as the winner is decided next week.

Seems to be a fast-paced episode like last week, so sadly, it probably will be the trend this season.

Seeing Alice go into childish mode was funny (and that tears face was hawt), but she didn't dwell on it, which is great.
It was also good to see Megumi stand her ground against a very strong personality like Ryo.

Speaking of Stand...the Jojo references were hilarious . Oraoraoraoraoraora

In my mind, Megumi is doing well but is developing, whereas Ryo has better skills so we'll see the results next match - cliffhangers return again!
Also looking forward to seeing Hisako again

Episode 2

Glad to see Megumi getting more spotlight this week. The Alice background storytelling is nice too. And holy shit, Jojo references!

The thing to remember is that Season 2 is 13 episodes instead of 24 like Season 1. They will naturally have to pace things a lot faster if they don't want to just randomly cut off halfway through the tournament. I think the series could be successful as a long term anime, but I suppose they aren't taking any chances. Considering the pacing of the manga, I'm actually in favour of one match per episode. A lot can be covered in mere minutes that took the manga chapters to explain by going far overboard in details, etc.

Imagine the sound recording session for that Scallops vs. Shrimp scene.

Episode 2: The Interplay of Light and Shadow

Well when I watched the episode I was eating instant ramen, and then seeing all this beautiful ramen on screen made me sad that I was eating bootleg ramen and not real ramen. ;-;

Megumi has grown so much since the first season. Usually she'd freak out, but you can see her development in this episode in the way she stays calm and collected throughout the match.

Hmm seems like they are doing one match per episode? And shortening the back stories and what not like how they did with Alice, Soma and the old lady, and Ryo's little backstory. It does feel pretty rushed though.

Looking forward to the next one though

The references are one of the many things I love about the series, some more to come here and there, haha.
And I think the reason they're rushing through these matches is because they're trying to wrap things up to make time for

Ep. 2

- The Jojo references xD
- Ryo x Alice (the flashback that put me onboard the ship)
- Thanks to seeing this animated I'm starting to ship Yuuki and Megumi xD
- It was probably another Jojo reference but the black uniform Megumi was wearing at the end totally made me think of Blood: The Last Vampire.

I really hope JC Staff changes their minds about this only being 12-13 episode season, it'd be such a waste
