If you’re looking for some websites to watch Food Wars online, you’ve landed at the right place.

Food Wars! Or Shokugeki no Soma is (and I don’t say this lightly) AMAZING! It’s one of those animes that if someone walks in on you watching it, they may see a heartbreaking and emotional scene, a tense and fast-paced action scene or they could see a gaggle of horny little cherubs fondling a woman’s breast while she eats food.

Food Wars! is a shonen, which putting a cooking anime in the same demographic as Jujutsu Kaisen, Dragon Ball, and Naruto may sound confusing to some of you. However, not since the first time I saw Gordon Ramsey call a chef a donkey and tell them to “F*** off” have I found cooking this exciting.

But watching Food Wars! can be more complicated than cooking some of the food from Food Wars! I know because I’ve done both.  If you want to watch it subtitled it’s a bit easier, but for some reason, most streaming services treat the Dub and Sub like two entirely different shows.

And if you want to watch the dub it’s even more complicated because most streaming services treat each season of the dub as different series altogether. Because watching the show can be hard, I’ve complied a list of where and how to watch Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma.

Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma Plot:

Sōma Yukihira is transferred to the prestigious Tōtsuki Culinary Academy by his father Jōichirō Yukihira. Soma must figure out a way to stand out amongst some of the most skilled young chefs in the world. His way of climbing the ladder? Challenge as many people as he can to a Food War.


Where to Watch Food Wars Online

Also, it goes without saying that if you love anime then you should support the creation of anime. Even if it means sitting through ads. So the following is a list of legal streaming sites.


1. Netflix

Netflix has Food Wars dubbed and subbed and it’s easily accessible. They even have some anime that is exclusive to them.


  • It’s easy to find and watch Food Wars.
  • Netflix has a small, in comparison to other things on this list, library of anime. But its ever-growing and both subs and dubs are easily accessible.


  • They only have the first two seasons and no word yet when they’ll get more episodes




The plan you choose greatly depends on your needs. The basic plan is fine if you’re not sharing and don’t mind standard definition.

How to Watch Food Wars on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

  1. Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that NordVPN works for this purpose.
  2. In the settings, choose the US as your location
  3. Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic
  4. Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)
  5. Search “Food Wars” in the Netflix search bar and you should see the anime pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To to do this on mobile, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. To do this on PC, you have to clear the cache in your web browser.

I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.


2. Hulu


Hulu like Netflix has the first two seasons of Food Wars dubbed and subbed.


  • Both Subs and Dubs are easily accessible
  • HD Quality


  • Only has the first two seasons







If you’re just looking for anime you can just ignore the live TV options.


3. HBOMax

HBOMax is a streaming service from – Well, HBO. The service offers a large library of movies, even new releases that are released the same day as in theaters for no additional cost. They also share some of Crunchyroll’s library. Their anime is probably the smallest on this list but what it does have is in amazing quality and easily accessible.


  • It’s easy to search and find Food Wars!


  • They only have seasons 4 and 5
  • They only have the English Dub of season 4. As in there is no option for the Japanese voice-over.




HBOMax also has yearly plans that will cost you $99.99/yr for the plan with ads or $149.99 for the ad-free plan


4. VRV


VRV is a one-stop-shop for animation. It combines Crunchyrolls library with Hi Dives and many more. Also, if you buy VRV premium you also get Crunchyroll Premium for no extra charge.

VRV has all the seasons of Food Wars subbed and the first 4 seasons dubbed (the 5th season hasn’t been dubbed yet).


  • Watching the sub is simple as searching for Food Wars! And selecting the season you want from a drop-down menu. Though you can’t access dubs here.
  • They have every season of Food Wars!
  • A LARGE library of anime here. Most of the anime that’s currently streaming can be found here.


  • Searching for the Dubbed version of Food Wars is a pain. It treats the dubbed and subbed versions of the show like they’re in entirely different shows. It also treats each season of the dub-like entirely different shows. So, you’ll have to search for each season of the dub separately.



9.99 with included Crunchyroll Fan account makes this the best deal on this list.


3. Crunchyroll

Because VRV has Crunchyroll‘s library added to it, what was true for VRV is also true for Crunchyroll.

Crunchyroll like VRV has an extensive library of anime. If you love anime, then you’ll love Crunchyroll.


  • Searching and finding the sub is simple and easy.
  • They have every season of Food Wars!
  • Large library of anime.


  • You’ll have to do the weird searching for each season just to watch the dub just like with VRV



You can watch a lot of Crunchyroll’s library for free with ads, including Food Wars!


Final Thoughts on Where to Watch Food Wars Online

If you want to watch Food Wars online and you’re ok with Subs then your best bet is VRV. For 9.99 you get access to multiple anime channels and a free Crunchyroll subscription.

If you want Food Wars! Dubbed I still say stick with VRV even though it’s more complicated. If you have a Netflix subscription, I’d start by watching the first two seasons there and then moving to VRV. You can even grab a 30-day free trial.

3 thoughts on “5 Best Places to Watch Food Wars Online (Shokugeki no Soma)

  1. Netflix Vietnamese has all seasons, but us doesn’t that is weird?

  2. It’s super weird and annoying. I’ve had to use a VPN to keep changing my region to keep watching Food Wars. The US Netflix anime library is getting worse and worse for some reason.

  3. Could someone please update this guide because it’s definitely no longer accurate, unfortunately.
