I’m falling behind on my posts…well, I guess I saw this coming. It’s not that I don’t want to talk about my favorite moments, it’s just all this cold weather…yeah, the weather is the problem. Anyways, it’s time for Day 6 of the 12 Days of Anime. Today I talk about a moment from one of my favorite series’ of all time; Food Wars!
This show is about as close to a ten as I can give a show, and is one of the few long-running series that continues to produce solid seasons after the first one. At this point, I can’t even tell if season three was better or the same as previous seasons, all I know is that they are always amazing. That being said, the third season had a standout episode. Of course, I’m talking about the Shokugeki between Souma and Eizan of the Elite Ten Council.
There were two main reasons that this episode stood out to me, the first being facial expressions. Ahh, those amazing facial expressions. Besides the one pictured above, I can remember at least another dozen great ones. Of course, they were mostly made by Eizan, as he was expressing his anger. I can’t recall another episode of Food Wars! using expressions to this degree, hence the reason why it was such a WOW factor for me.
Secondly, was Souma’s attitude during this supposed “hopeless” Shokugeki. He had a no-shits-given demeanor throughout the episode as if he was sure of his victory ahead of time. My favorite quote of his, which was also the main one circulating the internet, was “I’ll blow away your fossilized brain.” Powerful, huh?
What did you think about this series? If you have seen it, what was your favorite scene? Also, be sure to let me know if you are participating in the 12 Days of Anime! I would love to read more posts from fellow anime bloggers.
