Average Rating

The supermarket is an important building in any city, for they provide a convenient way to purchase a variety of food in a family-friendly, safe environment. However, these stores changes in the blink of an eye once the unsold bento boxes go on their nightly half-off sales! War breaks out and friends become foes as each person fights for honor, pride, and dinner. There are no longer any people in these supermarkets, only Wolves and Dogs⁠—winners and losers. High schooler You Satou is painfully introduced to these battles after unknowingly stumbling into the war zone, but instead of choosing to avoid these nightly fights, he wants to join in. After seeing Satou's lack of fighting skills, upperclassman and Wolf Sen Yarizui invites him and Hana Oshiroi, a girl who enjoys spectating the brawls, to join her Half-Priced Food Lovers Club to show them the distinction between the Dogs and the Wolves. Together, they learn what it truly means to fight for your food.

Bisharp

Supermarket Fight Club. A lot more fun than you’d think. Also has a kick ass OP.

Quasar

The craziest anime about bento boxes ever.

🎄SantaDour🎄

Better than Foodfight but not as lewd as Sausage Party.

Redstar

A ridiculous premise done well, with enjoyable characters, good action, slight ecchi and some good humour

Smoothnoseman

“A bunch of hobos fight for lunchboxs” the anime. Or simply the average day for an American College student.

Dirt_Claude

A Sonic the Hedgehog fan fights other psychopaths for medium sized servings of heavily processed Japanese cuisine. Pretty good.

TehRei

Surprisingly solid! The concept stays fresh all the way through, the humor is on point, and the characters are all great.
