A great "Shounen" food manga!

Ignore all the complains about this manga. The plot is not "fast" it's a "shounen" manga if you expect a much slower detailed plot go read something else. There's fanservice but it's not annoying unlike other manga's but that's not what makes this manga so good! It's the food, the art and the character reaction that will make you salivate.

When i was suggested to read this manga, i dropped it a few times because of the prologue as I'm not a fan of ecchi. Like some ecchi manga, I thought it will be full of fan-service and no story. This manga however,maybe 5-10 chapters in, starts the drama and I couldn't put it down. The reactions from the judges/tasters also get less pornographic as you continue, and more relative with the "taste" of the dish.

What i really love about the manga, is that if you get absorbed into it - you really do feel the tension and the atmosphere of the place. I think the art is absolutely gorgeous and it does play a part in this. I find myself sometimes just starring at the page because the art is flawless. Character-wise it's really up to your taste. Some people hate different characters, and some people love them. There's enough variety for everyone.

As long as you don't read too much into the cooking techniques and the reactions of the people who eat, you should enjoy this manga immensely. The MC is the kinda character you can't find fault with. He is good at what he does, he has talent, and he has potential, and so he grows too. Plus he has a lot of competition and rivals, creating an atmosphere that will excite readers.

The art is just delicious. There are a myriad of interesting characters. I have no problems whatsoever with the ecchi.

Spoilers below, but I feel you should know this before reading, as I counted on this when I began reading but was somewhat let down.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Despite the romance tag, there has been zero romance. Nothing at all. The MC has shown no interest in any girl. A comment the MC's dad made hinted at future romance, but so far there has been none, and we are 76 chapters in.

49 chapters in and loving every second of it. Character progression of the protagonist is reminiscent to that of Beelzebub; not from weak to strong, but from badass to even more badass.

Looking through the previous comments, it seems people think this falls short as a cooking manga because it fails to be informative or the material presented is just BS. But considering the amount of "how to" pages in the chapters I really cant imagine this being pulled out of someones @ss. Every single dish is made through some elaborate technique or unique ingredient, knowledge a layman shouldn't be familiar with.

And for those who think this isn't informative, you must be smoking some illegal Brazilian sht because you are out your dam mind. The basic formula for SnS is presenting a dish, then explaining the techniques the chef used, ingredients of choice, and a brief history of the ingredient or what it's most commonly used for - a procedure that takes a couple of pages.

It's very charming, and the main character, Souma, is hard to hate. The art is top notch. It's quite creative and diverse, once you see the dishes, your mind will be blown. The manga does contain an enormous amount of ecchi, but if you don't mind it, this manga will be absolutely enjoyable. I wasn't bored by the 30th chapter. I feel like there was constantly a new challenge every few chapters, and personally, I like that kind of pacing. There are tons of gag reliefs that I fully enjoy. All in all, A+ for story, characters, and delicious-looking food.

I never image the great story from TSUKUDA Yuuto-Sensei and the great art from SAEKI Shun-Sensei (who work on Harem Time) is make this manga become so amazing, the power of combination is so frightening!

Reading this manga will make one hungry at times, still haven't decided whether it's a good point or not, but well - whatever.

Drawing are nice, and it goes both for characters and the dishes most of them make.

There's actually a plot! Pace is decent as well.


Looking forward to each new chapter.

I can't believe that there are actually haters of this manga, I mean that it is just plain great. It does not get played out or boring the MC is just refreshing losing but losing fate just keep trying and improving, to plus on it he is not a pushover. Even the supporting characters are interesting funny and I kind like the Soma and Megumi pair .Even though she was a complete scaredy cat she learn from Soma and tries to improve her self to cute. Anyways please give it a chance it's worth it

This manga is just great! When I started reading, I wasn't able to eat anything at the time because i was broke and i had to wait for my paycheck to come in. My friend showed it to me to be funny. Well I'm glad he did. Even crap i'm positive will taste absolutely disgusting look delicious in this manga. (This may be because I was starving and my clothes looked delicious but who cares?) I don't know a lot about cooking, but I've seen cooking shows from time to time back when I lived with my mom. This is way better.

I'm almost always against fanservice because it detracts from the story telling and is usually used in a desperate attempt to grab fans where their would be none. The reason I refuse to continue with bleach and Fairy Tail. But for some reason I think it actually makes this story stand out more. The art really compliments the ecchi (Probably because the artist draws H manga as well) and they don't use Ecchi except for when it actually is useful to the story telling. Now here me out. They don't randomly go around flashing their boobs and insinuating sex all the time. They don't show panty shots at random just to get preteens to get interested. They use ecchi scenes to show how good the food is. For some odd reason, when the food is good enough, girls loose their minds and they go into a dreamworld where their wildest fantasies come true and their clothes fly off for no reason. Weird but fun to watch.

Best part is the Main Character. The MC is just capable. He's not perfect and annoying and he's not horrible and annoying as well. The main character has a clear goal that he's driven to and wishes to complete. The character interactions are just marvelous and the whole thing just runs smoothly. I'de recommend this to anyone!!!!! Unless you can't handle the Ecchi!

Great art, great story, great characters, and great recipes. I can't understand why anyone thought it's not realistic (besides the oneshot, of course), there's even a famous japanese professional chef collaborating with them to create the recipes. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone.
