The long awaited Shokugeki no Souma is finally upon us! Foodgasms and delicious food awaits!
I have been waiting for this to be animated for so long while the manga was in its early stages and the gods must have heard my prayers. This is an anime about cooking, and foodgasms. That’s right foodgasms. I highly recommend everyone reading this post to start watching it, or even better, READ THE MANGA! The main character is no pansy, he knows what he wants, and has the power to get it. On the plus side, his harem is A+.
Without further ado, here are the screencaps for our pilot episode.
For you special snowflakes out there, here are some foodgasming dudes. Or the girls out there.
As a huge fan of the manga, I am really satisfied. In addition to fine performances and good animation that lives up to the original (hentai) art really well, the best part is how JC Staff is making it even more over the top. The cheesy shots (focusing on the eyes, slow motion, super fast hand movements, and dutch angles) don’t detract from the show at all; rather, they make you enjoy it even more without inflicting stupidity on the anime. The bombastic music really sweetens the deal, giving off a setting of epic proportions.
But as we all know, Shokugeki no Soma is a cooking anime.
Can’t wait for more. If you like the manga, definitely watch. If you haven’t read it, give both a try.
