Shokugeki no Souma

Post by Bob790 » Wed May 18, 2016 1:23 pm

An arrogant kid with too much talent transfers into a cooking school. Hilarity ensues.

Speaking of the arrogant kid.

It's cool that the series baited me into thinking that he was going to breeze through all of the
challenges that were laid before him.

It's a credit to the last arc pulled the rug under my feet with some interesting fights.

It's not fun to watch a hero overcome everything without trying. Unless they do it Overlord style, where they don't have to try and are going for style points.

I think our hero has style, it was just nice to see him acknowledge there was still room for improvement.

In one of the things I like about this show is how the characters have a "style"when it comes to their cooking.

Oh yeah, they all have style and as I said, a hero who is already perfect and knows it tends to be dull to watch. Souma isn't perfect and occasionally forgets which makes him entertaining.

you mean Souma the show or Souma the character?

If you mean the show I agree that was the case in the early episodes.

I meant the character but, yes, also the show.

I agree that instant perfection takes away from the story, but at the same time it's nice to watch people who are already competent at what they do. They don't need to waste time on a beginner's training arc; instead they go right into creating some very interesting recipes.
Oh, did I say that out loud?

It always makes me bloody hungry. So I always try to eat before coming, eating at the red lion is always the last resort.

A little bit late but I recently wondered if there was somewhere that has all the recipes.
Well, it wasn't hard to find, Its on the wikia site: http://shokugekinosoma.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Dishes
MMMMmmmm "Roast Pork, Just Kidding" looks good.
