Well, I was able to hold off on watching this as long as I could. The thing is, after over a month with a boxing anime this just felt like the ultimate antidote. Sure they both deal with people facing off with each other in a competition, but that is where the similarities end.
I don’t think there is that much more to say about this show that wasn’t said when I posted about the first season it eight months ago. It’s a show about students at a crazy competitive school for chefs that makes you hungry no matter how full you are.
At the end of the first season we were left with the cliffhanger of main character Yukihira Soma having made his way to a big knock-out cooking tournament for the first year students. We then spend this season in this tournament and one further challenge for the students. Of course we are then left on another cliffhanger… so we’ll just need to see how many more seasons that this gets.
This season still features some fantastic food talk. Some of the things that I have learned on this shows about food have really made me want to try new things. Maybe not a turtle burger so much, but a quail stuffed with risotto or a lemon curd semifreddo? Just hand me a fork.
Honestly, this isn’t high level watching but it is good fun and makes for a perfect palate cleanser before tackling my next series.
