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,…

Real Food Photos at the “Moon Festival” for “Shokugeki no Soma” Season 3

The Totsuki Academy's Food Festival in "Shokugeki no Soma" a.k.a. "Food Wars" has begun! From a small street fair to big international convention, these type of foodie events are very popular in my home country Japan! At a small event like a local festival, we see a lot of foods called "Rank B Gourmet (B級グルメ)". That are cheap (still pricey  though(-_-メ)) festival foods we can buy from street vendors. Just like the food they can buy at Main Avenue of Moon Festival! So, today I'll read Japanese kanji signs for you and show how those foods look in real life! Real Food Photos in "Moon Festival" for Shokugeki no Soma…

“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…

Morty, Summer, Jerry, and Keara eat Sushi in season 3 of “Rick and Morty” Is that Japanese Kanji I see on the wall?

Do you watch "Rick and Morty"? That is definitely one of the most popular American cartoons currently airing. I can tell because even I am familiar with the title but I don't watch it each week.   Today I'll answer a question from a viewer about Japanese kanji in the show! Thank you soooo much! Question: I saw some calligraphy wall art at the sushi restaurant in "Rick and Morty". Are they real? Let me see...They definitely went to a Japanese Sushi restaurant. Oh, my god. This is tough one. What do the Calligraphy art at the Sushi restaurant say in "Rick and Morty"? First of all, some signs are…

Season 2 of "My Hero Academia" has just ended...but, don't worry! They already announced that they are working on the next season.

The Kanjis of Tetsutesu Tetsutesu for "My Hero Academia" As you know, all 4 kanjis can be pronounced "てつ(tetsu)" in Japanese. The first kanji "鉄" means "Iron". This…

The Meanings of Nishinoya’s Kanji T-Shirts in “Haikyu!!”

Hey, somebody is really into Kanji T-Shirts. Nishinoya, the little libero guy for the popular volley ball animation "Haikyu!!", loves Kanji T-Shirts! I found at least 4  times he was wearing one and all of them are "4 character idiomatic compounds" that most Japanese people know the meaning of. Let's see them one by one! Haikyu!! Nishinoya's Kanji T-Shirt #1 一騎当千 "一騎当千(ikki-tousen)" means that "the one warrior is as strong as 1000 warriors". Yeah, Nishinoya has confidence! Haikyu!! Nishinoya's Kanji T-Shirt #2 一刀両断 "一刀両断(ittou-ryoudan)" means that "cutting it in two with one blow". This looks like expressing Nisinoya's manly personality. Haikyu!!
