Food Wars, which first debuted in 2015, is an anime in a league of its own. Yukihira Souma has been helping his father out at their restaurant since childhood. When his dad temporarily closes down the restaurant in order to test his cooking skills abroad, he sends his son to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, a school renowned for its "food wars" - high-stakes battles for culinary supremacy. Basically, it's like the anime version of Hell's Kitchen... except that in Food Warspeoples' clothes fly off of their bodies when they truly love what they're eating. 

Are there any other anime similar to Food Wars? While there's no show that matches its vibe exactly, there are plenty of anime like Food Wars that you'll probably enjoy if it ranks among your favorites. If you want a show that matches both its competitive spirit and its focus on food, try Ben-To, Toriko, or Yakitate!! Japan. If you could take or leave the whole food thing but want some hot-blooded, over-the-top fighting with a side helping of fan service, try Kakegurui. Want an anime that will make you drool over the delicious food but don't care about the competitive aspect? Watch Sweetness & Lightning or Silver Spoon.
