Sentai Filmworks announces Food Wars at Anime Matsuri

This is at least a year from now, but if it ends being dub worthy, hopefully it’s be a hella of lot better than Ben-To’s dub.

1 Like

I was thinking that I was the only one who held that opinion of the Ben-To dub. Joel McDonald really let a bro down with that.

Episode 1: Wow…that made me feel uncomfortable. At the same time, this could prove to be an interesting series still and look forward to seeing where it goes, beyond all the…shock.

1 Like

If they follow the manga, eventually, the shock will be toned down (other stuff ends up taking front seat, so you don’t see it as much), but I feel they upped the shock value on the anime anyway… so…

It does get more interesting.
