Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen (Food Wars! The Third Plate: Totsuki Train Arc) Introduction and Story
Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen is the 2nd cour of Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara, except now things are moving onto a train. If the previous season had you on your toes, be prepared as Souma does his best to prove himself in this mobile tournament in Hokkaido!
1. Same Excitement as Before
We have to say, Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen had us on our toes a lot of the time with each shokugeki appearing to be more difficult than the last. It’s especially tough this season considering how everyone wants to knock out our favorite characters and expel them from Tootsuki.
2. More Food
If you watch Shokugeki no Soma for the food, then you won’t be disappointed by Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen. This season, we are taking a look at Hokkaido dishes and really diving into Hokkaido cuisine, which is really an area that not many anime seem to touch up on (the prefecture, not just the cuisine). We get to see a lot of delicious dishes that some may not realize exist! Plus, with things being so difficult for Souma and his group, you get to see how they make the most with the little that they are given in order to pass their exams! Just watch how resourceful they can be and how they apply their Hokkaido knowledge!
We will admit that we didn’t totally love Shokugeki no Soma: Ni no Sara since there was absolutely no plot progression aside from that typical character growth part (We get to watch Souma learn a few things!). Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen is completely different with us being able to see how other characters grow in their cooking and confidence.
Actually, the best part is that we get to see more background story for a lot of characters like Erina and Jouichiro! This makes it a lot more interesting as we get to see more about characters other than Souma. Who else had questions about Jouichiro and his time at Tootsuki? Well, come watch Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen!
If you absolutely hate the shounen way of doing things, especially the endless tournaments meant to showcase skill and ridiculous dramatizations of everyday concepts, then you will hate Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara Tootsuki Ressha-hen. It’s actually just a shokugeki every episode with each student (mostly Souma) battling fighting to pass their exams. If this doesn’t excite you the way it does others, don’t touch this arc.
Can you believe Spring 2018 is over already? We can’t, but we’re still making sure to keep you up to date with our take on how each anime ended. Are there any peeps out there who have been anticipating a new Shokugeki no Soma season? Are you as ready for another new season as we are? Hopefully we’ll be hearing about one soon. Until then, we hope that you’ll stick with us for more of your anime needs!
