I suppose the tidbits of bigger things are sort of interesting but I still have to say this episode felt like a bit of a let down. I didn't really care about either of the new characters and it was basically just anime food porn, except without even being about particularly interesting or unique dishes. Fine if you're in the mood for it but I just found it boring. Hope things pick back up next episode.

Episode 2

So it seems a treasure hunter has found a old book that claims to have found this mysterious door in the mines, that appear every 7 days. After going down and finding the door, her first instinct in danger, but is quick to settle in. She orders the daily meal (the same meal the author of the book really liked) and is really impressed from what she ate. Getting a bento to go away with, she says she will return.
The second story is about Tatsugorou, one of the regulars, returning a sword to Seelemann, one of the lords in the area. We find out that, after his fort got attacked, he was on the run to get back to his city but was starving and had little stamina left. After finding the door to the restaurant, he is immediately suspicious (seems like a trend in the show!) but settles. He orders something he could only get from his town, and from questioning (because apparently where hes from, its really hard to get to other towns) about it, he finds out that it is better than he thought! After leaving he gave the sword to the chef as money and said he would return. Then that brings us back to the start again. Tatsugorou says there is a door near by and both of them head them with the ending of the episode.

I really enjoyed this episode, the food looked really nice and the side story's actually meant something to the overall plot. Just really hopping for more of this next week!

Does it matter? I'm sure there are plenty of young cute actresses who could fit the bill, one thing those movies never had a problem with was casting women (though I'm sure some will argue about Willie Scott, though obviously that was because of Spielberg's bias).



I guess not. Just not very familiar with actors under the age of 50 or so, so I couldn't think of any that would fit the bill. It would be interesting if they kept the character, as such, but made it a girl in the next Indiana Jones, if there is one, without explanation or even calling attention to it.


then go back and digitally replace Shia leBeouff in every scene of the previous film

Is there some sort of push by the Japanese government to get the citizens to eat more Japanese food? I feel like I'm seeing more shows of this genre where it's a story focused on a particular comfort food of Japan. I wouldn't count Shokugeki no Soma since that's more international cuisine, but definitely Gourmet Girl Graffiti, and Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories. I generally like them and they do make me curious about the dishes.

I like the short stories in this show, but I'm wondering if they're ever going to connect to each other.

I don't know, but this one features a western restaurant. (Although they mentioned that meant anything not invented in Japan.)

Anime in general has a lot of food porn. Possibly because you don't have to animate those pans across a table of food. (C.f. swimsuit shots in beach episodes.)

It's specifically mentioned this is NOT Japanese food.

No, in the first episode, the chef asks his grandfather why Japanese dishes like braised pork belly are included in the menu. His grandpa says that western cuisine refers to anything not originally from Japan. So while some of the ingredients may not be of Japanese origin, the dishes are still Japanese. Menchi katsu is definitely Japanese.

Shokugeki no Souma has me expecting clothes to go flying off with all this food porn, but this show is highly enjoyable nonetheless.

By the comments on the videos, people seem to think these are all seperate worlds. Its one world. The OTHER world. Thats why the dragon could fly to where the girl was in the first episode and the samurai walk to the knights place in the second episode.

Its just diffrent parts of the same world. Think about what it would be like having doors open in Japan, India, France, Africa and USA. They would look like diffrent worlds.

At least, im pretty sure. They havnt said directly 100% so I have potential to be wrong.

To clarify, Menchi Katsu is a localization of Minced Cutlets (down to the name.) An analogy would be how spaghetti and meatballs is considered Italian by Americans, although that combination was invented in NYC.
