Food Fight!


Great anime! Fun and very action packed. I had bought it on a whim and have enjoy watching it over again. I think I laughed more then I had in sometime. It is drawn well with a good story.

If you are skeptical, then check out the trailer on Funimation's YouTube Channel. Plus, on sale, you, how can you go wrong?

I've heard a 2nd season is coming out (rumor mill, I have not found any conformation). If it is true, I am so per-ordering it!

Thanks and enjoy!

Definitely a Food Fight


Honestly, this sounded like a straight "concept" series focused on bento, which sounded ridiculous and interesting to me. It's actually a whole lot left of that - a concept series about BATTLING to get DISCOUNT bento. Literally. He joins a club with people obsessed with the particulars of certain supermarket bento, which is something you could rhapsodize about, especially if you're a concept anime. But you learn next to nothing about food or the culture of bento boxes. The focus is fully on kicking other supermarket customers in the face to get first dibs on the leftover bento right after they're marked down for quick sale. For a weird battle series, it's fun enough, doesn't overstay itself. Just be aware, that's what it is, and that's all it is.

Black Friday: The Anime

by -

Talk about an unapologetically fun show. It entails a group of friends getting the best deals on Bentos at grocery stores...by fighting other customers! Basically there is multiple groups and rivals all competing to get half price bentos & the culture behind it. Its like shonen, "food wars", & Black Friday were all put into a blender & laced with comedy.

The 2 disc set contains 2 episodes of English dub commentary, textless ops/eps, funimation digital copy & a fun bento fight involving dub actors Justin Rojas and Joel McDonald, which was an interesting feature to say the least.

This show is extremely funny, creative in concept & much better than it has a right to be.
