Greatest Anime cook-off ever
My first review did not do the anime justice, and with Season 2 completed a while back, I decided to watch Season 1 again. And it's just as good as the first time I watched it.
Yukihira Soma is the star of Food Wars and a talented young chef who wishes to surpass his father's cooking skills someday. He helps out at the family diner until one day his father decides to jet off somewhere, and enrolling Soma in Totsuki, an elite culinary high school with a 1% pass rate (well something as low as that). So only the creme de la creme can graduate at a school with such a low pass rate, and at his induction ceremony, Soma declares he will become the Number 1 student at Totsuki.
