Last year, Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) topped my 12 Days of Anime list of top food moments from 2015, but this year, it’s fallen a bit in the standings. And so, clocking in at number 5, this shonen battle cooking challenge anime series is always guaranteed to be full of insanely delicious food… Food so unbelievably delectable that one bite will send you to euphoric heights of undress.
And, even though I didn’t think this second season of Shokugeki no Souma had quite the emotional impact of the first season, I still enjoyed all the fun cooking challenges.
My pick for best dish has to be the Akira’s seared carpaccio. Not only does this dish look beautiful, it also looks completely mouthwatering with a simplicity that belies the complexity of its preparation and creation. I also liked Akira’s backstory, which I found rather sweet.
Second place would have to go to Souma’s take on omurice consisting of a quail stuffed with risotto. The whole Stagiaire part of the anime really fun, and I wish there had been more episodes of it! (Especially Megumi. Forever Megumi.)
