    Episode 1

    Don't count your black chickens out.

    So it begins with Mao entering a cooking competition helping out a struggling restaurant that specializes in dishes made using black chickens in a town known for their chicken cuisine. And while the other chefs put out really fancy dishes, Mao's dish is a huge bowl of rice that had been seasoned by stuffing it in black chickens. The judges were quite skeptical, but after trying it, they just couldn't stop eating. This pretty much feels like Food Wars as I'm pretty sure that this manga is what inspired that show. That said, this show certainly looks like it will be only about the Shokugekis and not much of a story is being built.

    So like always, the trial period rules are in effect.

      Episode 2

      Dim sum that's out of this world.

      And it's another Shokugeki as Xie Lu throws down the gauntlet after he was served subpar stir-fry cooked by Shirou. So he challenges Mao to a shumai contest, and just when it looked like Mao was doomed after his idea of making four-bin shumai was already taken, he goes big, literally. His dish is a giant shumai piece and he got the win. Pretty much, it's like the first episode, though this time it's happening at Mao's home and it's a one-on-one duel. But it looks like next time things get a big more serious.
