 Hello Fellow Readers,

Today I bring you The manga Food Wars. The main character, Soma, goal is to one day beat his father at cooking. His plans were to train & work in his father's kitchen. His dad has other plans. Now Soma is enrolled in the most prestige cooking school in Japan where only lot of the Students graduate. Will Soma graduate and finally win against his father or will he be expelled before he even gets to start?

My husband loves this anime, but honestly I don't watch too much TV. but when I saw the
that there was an opportunity to read the manga, I jumped at it. Soma is great, equal parts cocky badass, and nice guy. I really love the cast of characters that get introduced, there's quite a few to name so I won't do that but each are unique and fun. Honestly, I didn't know what to think at first. How is a manga about cooking supposed to be intense and exciting? I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was. Somehow, this manga was exciting, intense & funny, while also making me hungry as well.

I feel like the Author actually knows what they are talking about to. I really want to try to cook one of the dishes the way they are described in this manga because it sounds so legit. They way convey cooking was pretty great and I was surprised that I like the manga so much considering what it’s about.

The illustrations were great too. Saeki was able to convey the seriousness of each situation but also through in humor as well. Plus, the food looked mouthwatering.  Overall, a pleasant, humorous Manga that somehow makes cooking more intense than an episode of Dragonball Z, just don’t read this on an empty stomach or else.
