food wars 2Volume 2 of Food Wars! take us to Polaris dorm where Soma will be living for his duration at Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute.

Leaving home for the first time in his young life, Soma moves into the  Polaris Dormitory—a place run by an old crone and filled with crazy and eccentric students! Barely settled in, Soma quickly finds himself in one of Tohzuki’s legendary cooking duels—a shokugeki! Who will his very first opponent be?

The most exciting part of this is the shogugeki, or the food battle. It’s Soma on behalf of the Donburi bowl society, vs. Ikumi Mito on behalf of Erina Nikiri, a member of the Council of Ten and who vehemently dislikes Soma. I truly love the descriptions of the food and what everyone does show their love of cooking. True, there are some that use their skills for “nefarious” deeds, but each so far has a love for cooking that far surpasses and boosts their skills.

I also love that recipes of the food in each volume is included so you can try out these dishes yourself. Especially as Soma’s dishes are thought to be “plebeian” and looked down on, so they would be easier for the everyday man to try cooking. I’ll need to either buy these or borrow them again to get another look at the recipes.

What little extras do you like included in manga series? What makes they special enough to be included? Comment below and let me know!
