Still hungry for some umami-filled animated cooking and over the top tasting reactions? No fear, Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara – Totsuki Ressha-hen has been served!
Shokugeki no Soma is an anime first aired in 2015 by J.C. Staff. It is based on the manga of the same name by Tsukada Yuuto. The anime follows the journey of Yukihira Soma and his friends as they grow together as chefs and people, one food war at a time.
Last season, we left Soma and the others after the first stage of the Advancement Exam under Azami’s new regime. Soma and his friends struggled to oppose Azami and Central since its principles go against everything they cook for. We left anxious but excited for the challenges that will face the rebels and the blooming possibility of romance between Erina and Soma.
This season, Central is still in power while our heroes try to thwart its every move. We return to their continued fight in Hokkaido, the Advancement Exam. So far, the anime has followed the manga’s storyline so it can be safe to assume that more plot twists and angsty food wars continue to await us this season.
The animation is still splendid with the over the top cooking and eating. Each frame of food still makes our mouths water while the art satisfies our eyes. The soundtrack is still as shonen as ever, getting you excited from the very start.
For those that have watched Soma’s journey from the beginning, this season is a delicious topping. To the newcomers who just want to watch a good anime this season, this anime is a new dish to be savored.
So if you’re looking for something to watch this season that will satisfy your food porn cravings, look no further. Here’s a tasty animated dish, coming right up!
