Than a Food Fitter

The Cooking Anime Hidden Gem That You Can Binge On Netflix

2 min read

While “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma” takes after a typical shōnen anime — featuring a male protagonist determined to achieve his goal no matter the challenges — it stands out as a hilarious, heartfelt entry that’s over-the-top in the best way. On IMDb, user spiderpig-81224 called it “absolutely fantastic,” writing, “As a regular mainstream anime viewer, I would never have thought that a cooking anime could be so satisfying. The show does a great job of displaying the cooking world through a competitive lens. The characters (main, major, and minor) are all developed wonderfully — you’ll fall in love with many if not all of them!”

User christian-schenk98716 praised it, writing, “I absolutely enjoyed this anime. It has some of the funniest things that I have ever seen. You just have to watch the first three episodes to know that it is truly glorious. If you do not like it by then, just go ahead and stop.” Fans also called out the music as being a particularly excellent part of the series.

Just note that “Food Wars!” takes the term “food porn” to heart, leaning heavily into sexual overtones: The second ending song encapsulates this theme perfectly with its title “Sacchan’s Sexy Curry,” and, judging by the sounds these characters make while eating, this may be one anime you don’t want to watch with your family.

There are five seasons total, although Netflix only has the first two seasons available. So if you ever wanted a little more anime flair to your “MasterChef,” check out “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma.”
