So you thought we were done reviewing the summer season? Think again! For one final show, the staff has gathered together to give various opinions on what clearly had the most diverse appeal to all of our differing tastes: Sweetness and Lightning.
Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara Food Wars! The Second Plate Annalyn – 7/10 Shokugeki 2 only has thirteen episodes, and I am not okay with that.
