Why do people depreciate the anime “Shokugeki No Soma”?

Welcome Back,

Oh get a look at the topic? This is what you guys are being waiting for, right?

Well Sorry for not posting it as soon as possible, but anyhow, I am here now, and I am going to answer it.


For those who do not know about the anime, here is a little review of the anime……

Ever since he was a child, fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family’s restaurant as its head chef.


Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its “Shokugeki” or “food wars,” where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns.

As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test.


Well here is the answer for the question “Why Do People Hate The Anime Shokugeki No Soma”

The biggest and most saddening part of Shokugeki is the very poor (or lack of) character development. By throwing way too many characters into the mix, there is simply not enough screen time for most of the main characters. The only person who I would argue went under the most significant change was Megumi, and even so, her development was incredibly forced – her development was not so much based on her own sheer free will but rather because she wanted to mimic other individuals.

The other disappointing factor about Shokugeki is the over-stretching (if this is even a word, lol) of the plot towards the latter half of the season. This is especially exemplified by the Autumn Elections. Most of the tournament events could have been condensed into two to four episodes, but since the judges kept talking and basically giving the same, predictable reviews and reactions (“oh this doesn’t look good… but it’s so yummy! *insert overly used ecchi animation*), this was easily dragged on and on when it didn’t have to be.

For example like this;


That’s it.

NOTE : There are many other reasons for why people hate the anime, but according to my perspective the above two covers it all…

Thank you for reading….
