Shokugeki no Soma “Moon Festival” Bills and Japanese Culture

I love food festivals! In Japan, there are so many events like Moon Festival for “Shokugeki no Soma” in real life. By the way, I realized they are using money certificates in the show. Visitors exchange their money to those “Fake Money Bills” at the special booth and they use them to pay for food in the event. I see the price, the school emblem(遠月: Totsuki), the event name(月饗祭: Moon Festival) and Erina’s Grandpa’s Face.  The red circle stamp says “総帥之印”. That means “Stamp of Commissioner”. Then, I’d like to talk about the largest calligraphy kanji above the price on the bill. That’s Japanese culture “松竹梅(Shou-Chiku-Bai)”! What is the Pine, …

“Moon Festival” in Japanese Kanji for “Shokugeki no Soma” Season 3

The school festival is starting in “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma”! They call it “Moon Festival” in English subtitles but did you catch what they call it in Japanese?? What is the Original Name for “Moon Festival”? Yes. Gekkyousai “月饗祭” is the original name for Moon Festival. If I break down this Japanese Kanji word 月饗祭(Gekkyousai), it would be like, “月(getsu/tsuki: Moon)”, “饗(kyou/kyo: Feast)” and “祭(sai/matsuri: Festival)”. “饗” is not the everyday kanji but it suits the name. I guess the kanji “Moon(月)” came from the name of the school “遠月(Totsuki)”. So, the word “Gekkyousai” means like “Totsuki Academy Food Festival”. That makes sense, doesn’t it? And also, if it’s …

What is Going on with the Difficult Kanji in the 3rd Season of “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma”?

Do you understand the meaning of “San no Sara”?? The answer is here. Yeah, “San no Sara” the season 3 of “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma” has started! …but a kanji in the title was not what I expected. Do you know which one I’m talking about?? The answer is “餐(san)”! It’s pretty complicated kanji, isn’t it? Is it “3”?? What is the Difficult Kanji in the 3rd Plate Title? Traditionally, in this show, they call season “PLATE(皿:sara)”. That’s why, I understood “餐ノ皿(san-no-sara)” means “the 3rd plate”. However, 餐 is NOT “THREE”!! So, please, don’t memorize this difficult kanji as 3. We pronounce this kanji “san” and also “3” can be …

Reason of the Yellow Sign for “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma”

Most of the time, every episode of TV shows have a subtitle. The popular Japanese animation “Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma” has one too.  But how many viewers noticed the yellow sign of that has a special reason? Japanese Culture behind the Subtitles of “Shokugeki no Soma” It’s a yellow vertical rectangle with red line. And you see the subtitle is handwritten with a thick black marker. Actually, this is the typical image of Japanese traditional diner’s menu on the wall. I couldn’t find the exact image from my resource, but this is the closest one. 海鮮丼(kaisendon: Sashimi Bowl) is 600yen…how nice! Theirs are white and hanging on the rope. …
