First Impressions (Anime): Shokugeki no Soma

Anime: Shokugeki no Soma 「食戟のソーマ」a.k.a. Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma

WARNING: Anime consists of stripping and nudity as well as absolutely gorgeous food.

So the new season of anime has started and one of the series I’m hoping to follow regularly this time is Shokugeki no Soma.

Literal, “FOOD PORN”

I’ve always known this and have called it as such since I first read the manga, but Shokugeki no Soma is literally that, “Food” and “Porn”.

I’m so GLAD there’s an anime of it now.

There is anime food that looks so mouth-wateringly gorgeous that makes up the “food” part of “food porn”, and then there is actual stripping of clothes and artfully-censored nudity which makes up the actual “porn”.

That’s it. That’s the show.

Nah, I’m kidding.

Kind of.

But seriously, I was REALLY looking forward to seeing this anime. It’s so much better than I expected to be able to see the high-tension cooking and stripping animated. It’s also so much more embarrassing. I was probably laughing really loudly to hide the intense embarrassment from finding joy in characters stripping over explosively good food. You have to experience it for yourself

I’ve actually only read 2 volumes of Shokugeki, but that was 2 years ago and haven’t bothered to keep up since. Maybe I’ll try to catch up before the anime XD

What were your first thoughts on food por— Shokugeki no Soma?
