Season 1 – The First Plate

Episode 1: The Vast Wasteland

Erina Nakiri appears in the closing scene of the Food Wars! premiere episode. The scene actually occurs past the ending credits.

* Every Food Wars! episode would follow with a post-credit scene.

The first glimpse of Erina Nakiri occurs under a waterfall where she’s seen in a mediative like-state. There’s a rainforest surrounding the secluded, secret-looking area. The moment appears to take place off the Tōtsuki Culinary Academy campus.

Erina is clearly deep in thought, having some type of introspective reflection…

Until a classical 1950s all-American style jukebox is dropped seemingly from the heavens.

The jukebox finds a landing spot right on-top of Erina’s head, sending her back into grim reality. Erina is awakened viciously by the second-rate cuisine she’s received by a student chef of Tōtsuki Culinary Academy.

It’s the first time Erina yells her trademark quote, “Disgusting!” as review for a dish. But certainly not the last.

Erina’s previous graceful, lithe presentation turns to blistering fury as it’s revealed she was actually conducting a taste test for student dishes. Her words cut through the students’ confidence like a knife does butter. Slicing and dicing their self esteem into three-day old takeaway.

“That broth is horrendous! It like tricks you into thinking you’re enjoying yourself and then a jukebox drops on your face!” The student chef would be both visibly and verbally confused by the implication of a jukebox.

He begged for forgiveness, only to have his entire dish shoved in his face. “Please, forgive my embarrassing oversight Miss Erina!” The student chef flew backward as his peers cowered in fear before their taste titan.
