ishinabelover111: I've gotten back into iron chef after I recalled watching it whenever it aired on SBS, but I am struggling to find any sort of solid archive for the show that is still maintained today. ironchefdb.com only has links to youtube videos and not enough info

Nakamura-san was a pretty good chef. His dishes looked pretty darn good. He would be a lot more accepted in the Iron Chef community if he would have stayed a little longer on the show, but I think he was good as an Iron Chef. He just lacked the charisma of the other Iron Chefs.
Excellent chef, yes, lack of charisma, yes, but the worst part to me was his looks were "scary" All of the other IC's were, in their own ways, handsome guys. Sadly, Nakamura did not compliment the show, and I think that also had an impact on him being replaced.
"WHOSE CUISINE WILL REIGN SUPREME?" IC SAKAI'S. Just call me "Sakai's Ichiban Fan!"
Nakamura is my favourite Iron Chef. In my opinion he doesn't look ugly or scary, he is just an ordinary Japanese person like the other Iron chefs. He'd have more fans if FTV translated more of his episodes. Don't forget he tied in a match with Alan Passard (at the time), the top chef in the world, which often seems to be overlooked. I'd really like to visit his restaurant if I had the chance.
