Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma (食戟のソーマ Shokugeki no Soma)
Producer: J.C. Staff Type: Adaptation of Original Manga Series Genres & Themes: Comedy, Cooking, Fan Service Stream: Crunchyroll, Release Date: April 3, 2015
Shokugeki no Soma tells the story of a boy named Sōma Yukihira, whose dream is to become a full time chef in his father's restaurant and surpass his father's culinary skills. But just as Sōma graduates from middle school, his father, Jōichirō Yukihira, closes down the restaurant to cook in America. However, Sōma's fighting spirit is rekindled by a challenge from Jōichirō which is to survive in an elite culinary school where 10% of the students graduate.
Ep.1: The foodgasms were over the top and the food reactions reminded me of Yakitate Japan if that show were echi, equal opportunity fan service, and for some reason this shows makes me think if Emiya Shirou were in a cooking anime this would be it.
Watched the 2nd episode. It was a bit slow and wasn't as crazy and ecchi as the first episode. I lost it when the young girl mentioned how bland her mother's breast milk was.
What do you mean it wasn't as ecchi as the first? She was being tickled by feathers while half naked in her vision. Also a little trivia, the artist of the manga series was famous for doing popular hentai. Which explains a lot with all the foodgasms.
metalsnakezero: I was referring to the anime anatomy trope/ barbie doll nudity in the first episode. The 2nd episode was more tamer in the ecchi scenes than the first episode which had more bouncing breasts, male and female barbie nudity, and such.
Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.

Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
Jul 9, 2020 3:27:17 GMT
Dream: Believe GXP was pulled from Funi's streaming site last year because their digital rights to the series expired. But you should still be able to stream War on Geminar on their site.

Taka: Darn, for some reason I thought it was still there. I finished Geminar. Well, I guess I proceed and watch the rest of those OVAs on CR.

Taka: I think I can write a review on Geminar. I wished I made a discussion thread and kept notes on it. I tend to forget small details and make mistakes when interpreting character actions.
