Food Wars Season 2: Episode 1 Review

Food Wars Season 2: Episode 1 Review

I’ve been looking forward to Food Wars’ return from the moment Season 1 ended, so much so that I was worried I’d over-hyped Season 2 for myself. There’s just a lot it needed to deliver — Season 1 was fantastic from its high-stakes tension to its deep character development amidst well-done, over-the-top fanservice. Season 2’s premiere moves at a bit faster a pace than Season 1 did and glosses over a key moment or two, but it’s still as fun, funny, and true to its characters as ever without feeling stale. The premiere picks back up in the middle of the Autumn Elections’ high-stakes cooking competitions, this time with a battle between molecular gastronomy expert Alice and the brilliant but rough-around-the-edges Soma. This is a competition with high stakes — whether Soma will rise to the top of this elite cooking school and finally surpass his father’s ability, among other things — and everything from the music to the characters’ reactions makes the situation’s gravity abundantly clear. There’s enough comedy throughout to prevent it from getting unbearable, though, which is one of Food Wars’ strengths. Continue reading…

Pokemon Go Is Secretly the Best Exercise App Out There

Pokemon Go Is Secretly the Best Exercise App Out There

Within a minute of first booting up Pokemon Go, I was already straying from my daily route. I was out on my dogs’ morning walk, going down the same path we’ve been walking for years, when I decided to boot up the new augmented reality game from The Pokemon Company and Niantic for iOS and Android. Once I got through the brief tutorial, I was alerted to the fact a Pokemon was behind me. Despite the great smells that I’m sure were just out of reach of my dogs’ noses, I turned us around, walking back half a block to look behind a dumpster to see if I could catch that rogue Charmander. He seemed to be hanging out in an apartment building and my drive to catch ’em all doesn’t cover breaking and entering, so I settled for catching the Squirtle hanging out next to a car on the side of the road. I’m more of a Bulbasaur girl, anyway. Continue reading…
