Ever since he was a child, fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family's restaurant as its head chef. Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its "Shokugeki" or "food wars," where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns. As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test.

If you were one of those people like me who always wanted the Food Network to add porn to their lineup well your in luck they finally did.


An original, well thought out shonen fighting anime that has great recipes and characters. The fights were intense and nicely delivered.


“What if we made a new battle shounen but instead of combat they fight with FOOD?” Prepare to salivate over anime food and food porn!


Food porn: The anime. Be presented with delicious cuisine every episode and be presented a great cast of characters.


It makes me want to fuck the food.
Also the cute girls, but mostly the food


After the first few episodes the FoodGasims are replaced by comic moments. fun series and lots of recipes to try in the mangas

Feels really fast-paced in the beginning, falls into the shounen-trap – dragging stuff out – by the end

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
