Shokugeki is back and better than ever! It’s great having this series back again, and I just couldn’t wait to watch it again.
As with all Shokugeki anime, the story is pretty amazing. However, being a manga reader, I know what will happen in this cour, so I can only say that the hype is real. There’s going to be so much good things happening, and I can’t.
In terms of the art and animations, it’s standard Shokugeki quality, great as always. Not much to comment on here. You get your food porn, you get hungry, your eyes are happy, your stomach is not.
The new opening and ending songs, although not as hype as the 1st cour’s, is still pretty good on their own. As for the sound track, I’m still missing “Food battle start” and “Food war outbreak”. Hopefully these two tracks can play sometime… Well, the other tracks in the OST are all great too, and it never gets old.
Those standard things aside, this first episode alone already showcased something we can all make at home, and a very mouth-watering dish indeed. My only regrets is that I watched it right after I finished my dinner(why do I do this to myself), so there’s no way I can eat again. The things Shokugeki does to my appetite…
Overall, a great first episode signalling the return of a great series, all aboard the hype train as we follow the series allow on their own train trip!
First impressions rating: 9/10
Most impressive part: The picture is right above!!!
*cough* Astral, make this dish and send it on discord *cough* So with Shokugeki finished, let’s move on to the next on my list, GGO Alternative.
See you in 6 hours!
