    Remake of an old classic
    For all those kids who are not aware yet. This is a remaster of an old show of the same name and definitely not a copy of Soma. (Back then, there's no moe, exploding undergarments or fan service... just pure cooking action) That show was of the first show that combined the elements of the shounen genre into an enjoyable cooking themed show. Hopefully this remake is as good if not better than the ...

    A Classic Remake to an Original 97 Series
    As I was outraged by seeing why there was a one star review, I shall post my very first CR review.

    For those that instantaneously complain that this is a replication of Food Wars might need to get their facts checked. This series is well over two decades old. Original airing took place in 1997 with its name "Chūka Ichiban!".

    This series has been in the shadows of my childhood as one of the ...

    The cooking anime that inspired them all
    An awesome reboot of the original Chuka Ichiban, one of the most pioneering cooking animes of it's time.It's a reboot of an old show of the same name. For those saying that it has elements that were trying to "copy" Shokugeki no Soma, this show was one of the first shows to really incorporate exagerrated effects and reactions into cooking that would later inspire animes like Shokugeki no Soma. ...

    Easily one of my favorite shows.
    This is pretty much the show that started all the cooking anime. I am glad to see them true to the series. The nice thing about this is the balance in reactions. They are a bit over the top but not nearly as absurd as you see in other shows. The dishes are also a lot more realistic than other shows.

    Not good for those new to Chūka Ichiban.
    Let me start off by saying that my review may have a bit of bias since this was the first cooking show I ever watched when I was 17 or 18 so it could be my nostalgia glasses speaking. that being said.

    For a cooking show it is a great one that is wholesum in the fact that it doesn't try to use eye candy to draw you in. The art style is that of the original and is cleaned up a lot and for me it ...

    Been forever mao. I missed you
    when I was a young this came out and inspired me to pick up my knife to cook.
    The manga artist carefully studied Chinese cooking as he drew out the manga.
    Many of the food they have on the show are actual food existing in China. I am just confused as to why they would pick this episode for the first episode of the reboot. I loved the first original episode about mapo tofu and how his mother ...

    So far so good......
    This was nice, and easy to watch. Decent story but predictable outcome. Doesn't mean it's bad, just predictable. Looking forward to the next episode!

  • Very obviously adapted from something in the 90s
    I generally don't like reviewing series that are not complete. However, I can see that this series is one that will get negative reviews, simply because it is old. This is very obviously adapted from a series from the mid 90s. As such it has many of the story telling devices, pacing and tropes from series that era.

    So this series is a shonen battle manga, which is common genre of manga that ...

  • Do some research 1st.
    This anime is old but carried vast memory of my childhood.
    It's simple but has its own storyline.

    Its missing the first Story Arc. But whatever its still a good anime.

    If it doesn't fancy your anime tastebuds then just watch a different one.
