I remember watching Food Wars for the first time like it was yesterday.
When I saw the cover I thought: “wow, food wars? an anime about food I guess, seems reasonable”.
And it’s not like the description for the anime helped, either:
“The Moon Festival is Tootsuki Academy’s annual gourmet gala, where students compete against each other to earn the most profit through selling their cuisine of choice. But for Souma Yukihira, it is also his first opportunity to challenge the Elite Ten, the supreme council that rules over the academy.”
“An anime about food competitions?” was probably my next thought.
Then before I knew it I was curious to see what the anime has to offer
The main character (and his father) cook up a good meal in their mini-restaurant.
The girl in the middle is a childhood friend, with everybody else being popular locals who LOVE the Yukihira style of cooking.
“The food looks delicious, the animation is good too” – a reasonable thought at this point.
But then out of nowhere… you start hearing a girl “moaning” as if you’re watching something X rated.
The food is SO good she can’t help herself.
And then the tentacles come out to play…
And later into the 1st episode….
Imagine watching that with other people in the room who don’t know what anime is. And things will get pretty awkward, fast.
You’re best off watching this anime ALONE.
