About Food Wars! Blu-Ray
Food Wars! Complete Collection contains episodes 1-24 of the anime directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani.
Ever since he was little, Soma Yukihira's main goals have been to beat his father in a cooking contest and take over the family diner. That's why, when his dad suddenly announces that he's shutting the restaurant down and sending Soma to cooking school, Soma is shocked. However, Tohtsuki Academy is no ordinary cooking school.
This elite institution is filled with culinary giants like Erina "God Tongue" Nakiri, who does her best to keep a lowly short-order like Soma from even making it inside the door. However, if the snobs can dish it out, Soma can serve it up, and when he learns that only a handful of the students manage to graduate every year, he swears that the only way he'll leave is as number one!

I Still Get Hyped When I Rewatch This; A Modern-Day Classic
Food Wars! follows Soma Yukihira, a 15 year old boy who has been cooking with his father at their family restaurant since he was 3 years old. After managing to convince an urban planner to stop bothering him and his dad to sell her their business to build an apartment complex, his dad suddenly tells him that the shop will close for 3 years, and during those 3 years, he will attend Totsuki Culinary Academy, one of the best in the world, to become a better chef. While he is there, he learns about new recipes and techniques, hones his skills, and makes new friends and rivals. The characters are fun and relatable and the Food Wars are suspenseful and hype-inducing.
The biggest complaint people have is the ecchi reactions to eating the food cooked during competitions, but the bulk of it is kept in the beginning of the story; the ecchi is hardly there by the end of this first season. The ending sets up for the second season, which should be released in the next year or two.

This is a must see. A show about cooking and making it in the most competitive culinary school out there is sure to please. The animation is great, the story is like nothing ive seen in shonen, and all the characters a great. I wasnt sure about this title at first, cooking seemed like an odd premise...but I am very happy to own this. Its funny and full of heart, plus I now have about a dozen ideas in the kitchen. There is fan service, but its not R rated at all, and it adds to the comedy. Only down sides, not a lot of extras...and...thats it. Its 24 episodes i plowed through. Buy it.
Absolutely funny series with real recipes to boot!

I made the mistake of ignoring this title for years as just a cooking show, and now regret it immensely after finally purchasing this BD.
This show actually reminded me of the premise of a lone Samurai warrior going to school to test his swordsmanship against the master(s) of each Dojo (this case being the food clubs at the Academy). Instead of this lone Samurai warrior dueling with swords against his rivals, the chefs duel with knives preparing sensational recipes instead.
The challenges happen very often and not just at the Academy either, as I loved the part where Soma saves his father's restaurant, and the entire shopping district from a Kara-Age fast food chain. Plus, the humorous 'over-the-top' scenes that I call erotic, exotic, or ecstatic reactions by characters after eating the food is darn funny. Then, there's the "Octopus in Peanut butter' bit that Soma does too!
In addition, real chef and model Yuki Morisaki was hired to consult for the series...cool!
