27 THOUGHTS ABOUT ‘FOOD WARS EPISODE 1: THE VAST WASTELAND’

BRB after I finish binge watching all 37 available episodes

So, I’ve finally got around to watching the first episode of Food Wars (it only took me three months of having a sticky note on my laptop staring menacingly at me…). Here’s 27 (probably incohesive) thoughts I had while watching it:

  1. What’s this??? I already like it. Count me IN

  2. What actually are these sound effects?

  3. This FOOD. LOOKS. SO. GOOD.

  4. A cooking battle??? I’M HERE FOR IT

  5. THAT’S his dad??? BRB I’m gonna go pray to every god I know in the hopes that I can look that good at 38 or even 28 – I don’t really mind!

  6. Chibi style too? What did I do in my life to deserve this goodness???!!!

  7. This sacrificial/spooky/religious music? I can get behind this.
    And that depressed AF face? RelatABLE!
    Also, good on Mayu for being so supportive!

  8. This dark music is SO DRAMATIC

  9. Honestly why is tasting food so dramatic? Do people actually have these experiences in real life?

  10. Wow… Competitive much?

  11. I’d just like to take a moment to ask… Is he okay? I’m slightly concerned…

  12. Have we found… our anime antagonists?

  13. SAVAGE

  14. Okay… that’s just LOW. Also, again, this music is so dramatic!

  15. Is she actually insane? I mean seriously. This is an actual serious question.

    15.PNG

  16. Melodrama seems to be the main theme of this show. I mean… you know, aside from cooking…

  17. When you casually carry around your headgear and apron… Because getting ready to defend your restaurant and dignity from land sharks is an everyday occurrence…

Half-way through the episode remarks:
– Okay seriously who is the composer? These sound effects and music are FLAWLESS
– I’m slightly disturbed by the way people react to tasting the food…
– Also everything is so dramatic but then again, I’m melodramatic too so I can’t *really* judge
– I’m so ready for the next part of the episode. I live for drama.

  1. Damn… those knife skills…

    18.PNG

  2. Okay it’s actual meat. Right, so no cannibalism in this show. Gotcha.

    19.PNG

  3. Ooh I’m getting an analysis of what he did? I like this!

    20.PNG

  4. These reactions… These business negotiation skills…
    I’m feeling like maybe if I wasn’t vegetarian I’d have more of an appreciation for their reaction to the dish?

  5. My precious little boy. I WILL PROTECT HIM.

    22.PNG

  6. Saw it coming (since I read the synopsis) but still… WOW. Way to break it gently!

    23.PNG

  7. I’m loving their father-son relationship

    24.PNG

  8. What’s this? Is that an angsty, relatable teen I see?

    25.PNG

  9. No dad. You failed to mention that part.

    26.PNG

  10. They all look so happy! I approve of this!

My main take-away from this episode:
– This anime seems to be everything that I ever wanted but didn’t know that I needed rolled into one! I’ll definitely continue to watch!

    If you’ve never seen this before you will love it. You will also probably gain 5 pounds per episode because the incredibly detailed, loving, and (weirdly enough) erotic references to food and eating will definitely make you hungry.
