    A magnum opus... Anime's most delicious dish.
    Food Wars! at its heart is a story of failure.

    It's a story of failure as a crucial ingredient to success, even in the face of those who are incubated from it. It may be a cooking/battle shonen style work, but the story very much illustrates and eminates the whole spectrum of failure - from those like Soma who thrive off it, to those like Megumi who experience a turnaround from avoidance of ...

    One of the best ongoing Anime on crunchyroll!!!
    I have loved this anime since it first premiered! I have watched it an loved since day 1, despite not knowing if I would or not. At first the idea of an anime that is centered on food and cooking seemed interesting because I had never seen any other anime quite like it, but I didn't think it would be something I would love and wait in anticipation week after week!!! 3 seasons in and nothing has ...

    Not a tired old anime
    What got me into this series instantly, is not the art, or the food, or the big boobs, or all the other things in anime that got me bored. It was that this anime is taking all these classical overdone elements and makes fun of it, which keeps putting you on the wrong foot on what to expect. Love it!

    Shounen...... Meet Shokugeki, the anime that changes lives.
    This show took the shounen genre to a realm nobody had ever previously imagined, and it does it in stunning fashion. For that, it deserves everyone's respect. Even if you don't enjoy this show(get your brain checked) you should respect it. It satisfies every kind of appetite you could possibly have all at once. The mundane became wondrous. Shokugeki, thank you for existing and inspiring the anime ...

    I wish i was good at cooking
    If this anime doesn't make you want to go into your kitchen and cook up a storm i don't know what will. This anime is so unique and amazing and will keep you on the edge of your seat with cooking! i didn't even know that was possible. Would highly recommend you to watch if you haven't already, It has definitely slid its way in to my favorites.

    watched it all in 2 days. Hungry for more!
    I wasn't to sure of this show at first glance but when i saw the first 2 episodes I immediately fell in love with this show, as a person who watches tons of anime I found this show to be really unique and fun to watch, it had me at suspense and excitement every time and I ended up wanting more and more each episode. OVERALL: Really great anime that had a unique theme 11/10.

    Like an intense Iron Chef anime
    It strongly starts off with more emphasis on key components that grab an audience's attention (stripping for food), yet ends up quite the opposite. The originator really KNEW their cooking. There would have to be intensive cuisine experience and research into this anime, and there definitely was. If you want to learn how to master cooking skills, you can get a lot of information out of this. ...

    Second Season, Just as Good!
    Still with plenty of surprises. We watch Soma's development further. He overcomes some challenges and is unable to overcome others. Some of the same characters, and some new ones. Character development is great as ever. Still amazed they can make an anime about cooking so interesting.

    5/5 HECK YA MADE ME CUK
    I hated cooking. Started watching this show- two weeks later bought some Shuns, a block, and shinoki cutting board. Now I've got some key All-Clad pieces for myself and my family back home and we all cook like peasant warriors. I convinced my lazy parents to throw away their shitty 20 year old cookware and now we all cook legit. Thank you for reading, and EAT YOUR MONKFISH, CHILDREN!!

    Five stars for thorough entertainment
    I like to think of myself as someone not afraid to give a beloved anime a rating of 3 or 4 stars instead of 5 if I think it deserves it, but I just can't do that to Shokugeki here. The art is beautiful, the story and characters intriguing, and the cooking... oh, the cooking! What's not to love, right? (Besides, perhaps, the crude and somewhat ridiculous fan-service.)

    And always remember the ...
