After the breakneck pace of the first two episodes, “Hope in Solidarity” slowed us down a little bit, giving us some prime character development and a small glimpse of the old Shokugeki no Soma – the slice of life moments that highlighted the series’ stellar secondary characters and broke up the tension of the succeed-or-die atmosphere […]
“Camera Flash” seems to have two separate meanings. Mimasaka uses it to explain his super-fast tracing techniques, but I would also use it to describe the pacing of this episode. Everything went by so fast – particularly the dish presentation and judging – that it felt like I just saw flashes of scenes. -*Read our […]
Shokugeki no Soma is back for its fourth and final season. I loved the show (and the manga) so much but I’ve made no secret of the fact that I really didn’t like this arc (but it’s SO MUCH BETTER than the final one). Still, it’s great to see everyone back at it in “What […]

I discovered Shokugeki no Soma thanks to Crunchyroll’s “Passport to Japan” contest way back in 2017, and I fell in love with it because 1) it’s about food and 2) the crazy (and crazily-endearing) characters. But now the Food Wars manga is coming to an end, with the last chapter publishing this month. -*Read our before commenting.* […]
This season of Shokugeki no Soma is moving surprisingly fast. The Regiment de Cuisine arc, which started a few weeks ago in the anime, only concluded recently in the manga. I expected it to take a while for us to get there, but with two episodes left, it seems that we’ll get to see the first […]
Joichiro’s past – and his relationships with both Gin and Azami – are the focus of “The Pioneer of the Wastelands”, which will probably become my favorite episode of Shokugeki no Soma. This was just a really great episode, and I think I enjoyed this flashback more in the anime than I did in the manga. […]
The terms of the Regiment de Cuisine have been set, the rebels have learned the importance of teamwork, and Erina stood up to her father. All this and more on this week’s episode, “Erina’s Diligent Studies”. -*Read our before commenting.* Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.
After a little bit of a hiccup, we are on to the declaration of war. After discovering that all of the other rebels have lost their battles against the Elite Ten and been expelled, Yukihira arrives at a very Yukihira-like decision. They will take over the Elite Ten and reverse Azami’s rules. -*Read our before […]
