Wow, lots of muscle! Seems our apron guy and chef had a lot of male bonding. Ample fan service for folks who loved muscular guys, and we get some obligatory hot spring scenes of the gals. I doubt female colleagues try to fondle each other in public baths.
There was a strong Soma and Megumi moment there. I hate to be a shipper fan. I like that moment.
YOOOOO The ending of the episode was so epic. Just the way he calmly said "Shokugeki" got me really hyped. Though, I'm pretty sure he's going to get beat handily. I think this might be my favorite show of the season. I feel like it started off with tons of fan service to get attention but then started of slowly get more and more serious. There hasn't been crazy amounts of boobs lately.
Also I really don't like that pink haired guy. Didn't even bother to remember his name. He deliberately set up his student to fail by placing bad ingredients into the tables. That doesn't do anything productive. He's just being a dick.
Magical Cabbage Girls! The frame rate dropped around the magical girl transformation time. It was great to see Megumi stand up for herself. I swear there was a ship moment there. That young girl sits like L of Death Note.
Soma and Shinomiya were pretty alike in their younger days. Got to see how Shinomiya became the man he was due to a bit of racism and folks changing his recipe, causing him to be obsessive about making food to the recipe.
Loved how each judge picture Megumi as a cute Yokai. Oh yes, when Megumi was thinking about staying at Totsuki, all the scenes had Soma in it.
Ep. 13: Did that snow white gal mess up Soma? I wonder she had something up her sleeve. We haven't seen any crazy Shonen powers in this show. It's been a regular cooking school show with fan service at the side.
Yeah, where would the fun be? Do you watch an anime series before reading manga? I had this habit of watching anime and not reading the manga. For the wiki, I usually read it side by side but never read ahead of the anime.
Taka: Hmm it depends, most of the time I read the manga and then watch the anime to see what changes they made in the anime adaptation. For example Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon I watched the anime first and saw that there was a manga and saw that the anime deviated from the manga but I really enjoyed the anime adaptation nonetheless.
I really enjoy the interactions between Soma and Erina. I hope that next episode he shows what his cooking is capable of. But I wonder what happened to him. He's usually full of confidence even when sabotaged. The white haired girl seems interesting IMO. Hopefully she's not bad. I liked her design.
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Master Menos: Dream: I've always been a PC guy anyways. (Yeah, that was funny!)

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
