Food Wars is one of my favorite anime for a couple of reasons.
- I love competition, and I’m a competitive person.
- Food Wars has a lot of “business” lessons and references.
- It’s one of the most engaging anime of its kind.
And there isn’t an anime that competes with it, since “food” is a rare focus for an anime series in general.
But that’s what makes the quotes, commentary, moments and characters so interesting. Good enough for me to share some of the best quotes the anime has to offer.
If you love Food Wars, here are 18 quotes worth sharing…

You had no regard for such things, that is why you lost to Soma before the match even began.” – Satoshi Isshiki
