Shokugeki no Souma Ni no Sara (Episode 1 Analysis! + link!)

The Award Winning show of 2016 for shounen anime has finally reached our screens, and it's time to rejoice over the return of the foodgasms and heroics, battles and cliffhangers in the Shokugeki no Souma, The Second Plate!!!

What has improved!

Right from the start, new music is introduced with new and creative OST inspired by the Pokémon games and they have increased the efforts in the animation, being that one of the major criticisms the first season it got was that the animation was relatively stiff and still-framed, which they still continue using, but now features *much* more fluidity and character-movements!

The first episode, however, was kinda rushed. Compared to the manga, it covered basically 10 chapters in one single go, but maybe that's what it takes to bring everyone back to speed on the current universe in Shokugeki, being the Autumn Elections!

Check it out!

And see for yourselves!

@LuffyNewman the thing that makes this shounen so much better than the others is that Souma's abilities aren't being used to get praise or to factually improve himself (he does that by himself), but to show the world and the society he lives in the hypocrisy of what their perception on what good food actually means, and Souma himself needs to grow stronger in order to continue doing that. This show has got it figured out, and Season 2 is gonna be a tad-bit -2lvls of foodgasms, but seriously +1000lvls on story and character-development!

@VoidX yeah after ending s1 with his dad and showing how him n the old man made horrible food. It goes to show it isn't about appearance or high tech and perfection it's about bringing food back to its origins or what that food was originally intended for. Like with the bento, yeah sure you can make the perfect cooled box with amazing foods but the whole this is what is bento all about? It's something about the memories of bringing those tastes back into a flavor of memories and not just sense of mixtures of great food to create then"perfect" look and firture and display with great tastes! I really cannot wait to see the character backdrops and could even see a season 3 happening if they don't national championship beyond this level as well! It isn't a wonder that is it a top shounen for not even being a true battle style shounen it the generic genre which I love!!
