It’ll make you hungry.


A great follow up to the first season. I still don’t know anything about cooking though.


The superior season which sees some great development and growth of the characters. It was intense throughout.


The TEASE! Grrrrrrr. A good continuation and I appreciated the toned-down ecchi. Mimisaka can jump off a bridge.


Episode 2 has one of the greatest JoJo references i’ve ever seen


A nice addition to the series, and a nice tournament arc as well.


The second season picked up where the first left off its nice to see a show where the good guy can loose.
