Food Wars: Shokugeki no Souma is proving that the hype is real and is currently one of the hottest anime series in the new Spring 2015 season. As the title suggests, the anime is all about food and has gained a reputation for taking the term “food porn” to a whole new level.
To further promote the anime, Food Wars: Shokugeki no Souma has participated in this year’s “Niku Festival” or Meat Festival, where cosplayers dressing up as Souma Yukihira, Erina Nakiri, and Ikumi Mito are manning a booth which serves special chicken karaage wraps. These karaage wraps come with a special sauce and is supervised by chef Morisaki Yuki.
Recently, anime music producer, Noriko Dohi recreated the two dishes featured in the anime’s first two episodes.
The Niku Festival is currently being held at the Komozawa Olympic Park in Japan and welcomed over 70,000 visitors on its opening day alone. The event features a vast selection of meat dishes from all over the world.
