Ducks In Anime: The Pictures Tell The Story

-Shokugeki no Soma, Ep04
Click "more" for... the rest of the story!

---The End----

I've only watched this episode of SnS, so I have no idea if its any good.  It appears to be a kitchen fighting show.  "Whose cuisine reigns surpreme?" indeed.  Imagine Ikkitousen without punching but with mackerel and soup...  The character designs are, for the most part, pretty decent.  The girls are cute.  I like the bamboo cap on the duck.

1 Is this the one where right away in the first episode a girl does a taste test and it has a... profound and meaningful physical effect on her, ahem? I couldn't get through the first episode of that one...

Also, I'm disappointed that your first link doesn't include the super-pause portion of that famous sign-off: "...and now you know... the rest... of the story. This is Paul Harvey... ... ... ... Good day!"

2 (Lest I come off as entirely grouchy, which was not my intent: That is a unique duck. I want one!)

3 GD, the MC is a very good cook indeed, good enough to give a shriveled old harridan memories of a youthful time with a meal made from tinned fish and scraps of veggies.  So, um... maybe? 

I'm only here for the duck.

4 I gave it four episodes and then dropped it. It's a one-trick pony, and they do the trick every episode. I got bored.

5 Funny enough, the last couple of episodes were pretty good. Less "achieve orgasmic pleasure through the power of mah cooking!" and more "I'm such a good cook that I will beat your supreme ingredients with stuff I pick up half off at the cheap supermarket". Show's definitely at its best when it's pushing the diner cook versus haute cuisine theme.
