10. Keijo!!!!!!!!

Keijo
Synopsis – Japan’s latest competitive sport, keijo, is dictated by a simple set of rules: female-only participants must stand on circular platforms floating in a pool—referred to as “lands”—with the goal being to knocking off opponents using only their breasts and butts. Despite this outlandish premise, the sport attracts millions of viewers across the country and boasts a lavish prize pool. Many aspiring athletes take up the challenge in hopes of becoming the next national champion.

After graduating from high school, the lively 17-year-old Nozomi Kaminashi enters the world of keijo, hoping to bring home a fortune to her poor family. As a gifted gymnast, Nozomi quickly proves herself a tough competitor after stealing the spotlight in her debut tournament. Meeting new friends and rivals as she climbs the ranks, Nozomi discovers that the path to stardom as a keijo player is filled with intense competition that will challenge not only her body but also her soul.

Similarity – Both shows follow a dark-horse of the main character, whose mix of skills and drive takes them through the ranks and shocks the world around them. While Keijo is a sports-based show, Shokugeki no Soma has a sport like feel to it, with tournaments, epic battles, and rivalries between the characters.

9. Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World)

Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World)Synopsis – Western Restaurant Nekoya is a popular eatery located on a street corner in a Tokyo shopping district. Serving both traditional Japanese fare as well as Western dishes, this eating establishment is popular among Tokyo’s residents. But this seemingly ordinary restaurant is also popular with another type of clientele…

While the restaurant is thought to be closed on Saturdays, the truth is that on this special day each week, its doors are instead opened to the inhabitants of other worlds. From dragons and elves to fairies and mages, this restaurant has no shortage of strange customers. Nevertheless, the enigmatic chef known only as “Master” will be waiting to serve up their favorite dishes with a kind smile and keep them coming back for many more Saturdays to come.

Similarity – Both anime heavily involve food. They both showcase VERY aesthetically pleasing dishes along with how they’re made! One big difference between the two is that Shokugeki’s MC is focused on for the majority of the anime, while Isekai Shokudou tends to focus more on the numerous recurring characters.

8. Haikyuu!!

HaikyuuSynopsis – Inspired after watching a volleyball ace nicknamed “Little Giant” in action, small-statured Shouyou Hinata revives the volleyball club at his middle school. The newly-formed team even makes it to a tournament; however, their first match turns out to be their last when they are brutally squashed by the “King of the Court,” Tobio Kageyama. Hinata vows to surpass Kageyama, and so after graduating from middle school, he joins Karasuno High School’s volleyball team—only to find that his sworn rival, Kageyama, is now his teammate.

Thanks to his short height, Hinata struggles to find his role on the team, even with his superior jumping power. Surprisingly, Kageyama has his own problems that only Hinata can help with, and learning to work together appears to be the only way for the team to be successful. Based on Haruichi Furudate’s popular shounen manga of the same name, Haikyuu!! is an exhilarating and emotional sports comedy following two determined athletes as they attempt to patch a heated rivalry in order to make their high school volleyball team the best in Japan.

Similarity – Even though both anime may have a different concept, they are actually pretty similar. Both anime are labeled as comedy and shounen. They both have interesting characters that you can connect to, even the rivals. At times, they both can get very intense and exciting. I find both of the MCs, Hinata, and Soma adorable and confident. The openings also get you hyped. Both of these are about a talent, Haikyuu!! is about volleyball, and Shokugeki no Souma is about cooking.

7. Chuuka Ichiban! (Cooking Master Boy)

Chuuka Ichiban! (Cooking Master Boy)

Synopsis – The story takes place in 19th century China during the Qing Dynasty, where the Emperor was weakened and the country was close to chaos. It is also during a fictitious era called “The Era of the Cooking Wars”. It was an era in which top chefs with different cooking styles tried their best to improve their skills and to become the best chef in China. The country where insulting a high-grade chef or fooling around with cooking could land a person in a jail, and impersonating a top-chef is as good as a usurpation of authority. Chefs compete with each other in order to gain respect and even power, but also with the risks of losing everything.

Similarity – Both centers a young boy who wants to pursue a career in Culinary Arts. Although the difference between these two series is one focuses on Chinese cuisine while Shokugeki no Soma centers not only on Japanese cuisine but international cuisine as well. Also, Chuuka Ichiban centers in historical and fights off evil who uses food to conquer the world. I both like the two series as they both shine and has a unique concept and to top it off only a few cooking genres is animated so if you liked Shokugeki no Soma, you should try Chuuka Ichiban as well.

6. Ben-To

Ben To
Synopsis – April 6th, 2011—that was the day that 15-year-old You Satou was knocked unconscious while reaching for a half-priced bento, a prepackaged meal sold at the supermarket. By the time he woke up on the ground, all the bento boxes were gone. He left the supermarket hungry and in pain, only for the same thing to happen the next day.

You soon learn that, in the world of Ben-To, discounted bentos are sacred and highly-sought after, and in order to get one, you needed to fight your way to the top. These bento brawls are fought by experienced fighters known as “Wolves”, who leave the inexperienced and weak “Dogs” like him lying on the ground in defeat. In a world where the weak are left hungry and only the strong can dine, You must train under the guidance of the silver-haired “Ice Queen”, Sen Yarizui, to become a bento-eating wolf himself.

Similarity – Food is *extremely* serious business, as these squadrons of busty beauties will be very eager to tell you. Fun fanservice shows where people wage wars over their cuisine. (literally and figuratively)

5. Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler

Kakegurui
Synopsis – Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou’s special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn’t play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table.
Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has the quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school.

Similarity – Think of Kakegurui as a discount Food Wars with no plot and more battles. Also, most of Kakegurui’s cast are psychopaths.
If you want more Shokungekis, try out Kakegurui

4. Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon)

Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon)
Synopsis – Yuugo Hachiken is studious, hard-working, and tired of trying to live up to expectations he just cannot meet. With the ushering in of a brand new school year, he decides to enroll in Ooezo Agricultural High School, a boarding school located in the Hokkaido countryside, as a means to escape from the stress brought upon by his parents.

Initially convinced that he would do well at this institution, Hachiken is quickly proven wrong by his talented classmates, individuals who have been living on farms their entire lives and know just about everything when it comes to food, vegetables, and even the physiology of livestock! Whether it be waking up at five in the morning for strenuous labor or to take care of farm animals, Hachiken is a complete amateur when it comes to the harsh agricultural life.

Similarity – A boy goes to a special high school. Gin no Saji is about Hachiken trying to get used to the agricultural lifestyle, while Shokugeki no Souma is about Souma trying to become the best chef. They are both hilarious comedies involving delicious-looking food. Silver Spoon and Food Wars for me have the same vibe of happy and upbeat!

3. No Game No Life

No Game No Life
Synopsis – The series follows Sora and his younger stepsister Shiro, two hikikomori who make up the identity of Blank, an undefeated group of gamers. One day, they are challenged by the god of games to chess and are victorious. As a result, the god summons them to Disboard, a reality which revolves around games. Intent on maintaining their reputation as the undefeated gamers, Sora and Shiro plan to conquer the sixteen ruling species and to usurp the god of games.

Similarity – The main male lead has the same voice actor. Secondly, both shows are in a setting where as long as you are good at what you’re doing, you can duel under any condition, this applies to the academy and in elkia too, so long as both parties agree to the condition, any duel/bet can happen
And yes both main protagonists are damn cocky XD

2. Yakitate!! Japan

Yakitate Japan Synopsis – Azuma became obsessed with bread when he was six years old. His sister yelled that their family should start having bread for breakfast sometimes, but their grandfather refused to even consider it, as he would only eat natto, miso soup, and rice for breakfast. Kazuma agreed, saying he didn`t like bread, but his sister kidnaps him and takes him to a bread store to show him the wonders of fresh-baked bread. Not only is Kazuma converted, but the owner discovers that Kazuma has the magical “Hands of the Sun” whose warmth makes them particularly suited to making bread. The owner packs up shop and goes to Tokyo to fulfill his dream of making Japan, but Kazuma continues his bread-baking dream as well, and ends up going to Tokyo himself when he`s sixteen, to compete for a spot at the foremost bread store in Japan – Pantasia!

Similarity – Both are food anime. Yakitate Japan focuses on bread and Shokugeki no Souma focuses on food in general. The great thing about the two is the reactions the ones eating the food get. While Yakitate Japan’s are extremely hilarious and comical, Shokugeki’s are more ecchi but still amusing at the same time. Both are quite in depth in explaining the process of how the food is prepared and also have cooking type battles.

1. Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)

Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)Synopsis – The path to becoming a fine wife begins with being an accomplished cook—at least, that is what Ryou Machiko’s late grandmother had led her to believe. For a middle schooler, Ryou’s cooking skills are incomparable; but recently, though Ryou’s food looks appetizing and smells inviting, the taste has not been delicious. Just when the dejected art student comes to terms with the possibility that she might continue living alone for the rest of her life, her aunt tells her that Kirin Morino—Ryou’s second cousin—will begin staying with her every weekend since the younger girl has joined a cram school in Tokyo and aims to attend the same school as Ryou.

Surprisingly, with her cousin’s arrival, Ryou finds that her cooking has vastly improved—apparently, it is not her prowess in the kitchen, but the sharing of the experience with those closest to her that seems to make the flavors shine.

Similarity – Cooking is love and cooking is life! Imagine living through the end of one’s lifetime without the pleasure of experiencing prominent cuisines, that would be nothing short of heartbreaking. ‘Shokugeki no Souma’ and ‘Koufuku Graffiti’ share an older brother – younger sister sibling relationship that will certainly put a smile on everyone’s face with the comedy, friendship and hardships along the way.
