After a long wait, an anime adaptation of Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki’s cooking competition manga “Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma” is finally returning for a third season. Season 3 has been announced in the thirtieth Weekly Shonen Jump and will air October 2017.
The official name will be Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Third Plate.
Shokugeki no Soma tells the story of a Yukihira Soma who dreams to take over his family diner, Yukihira, and is sent to an elite culinary school, Totsuki Culinary Academy, by his father. In this institute, Soma faces all kinds of talented chefs from around the world. Totsuki, infamous for its difficulty, has a graduation rate of only 10 percent! As Soma struggles to make it to the top of Totsuki, we also look forward to seeing Soma develop and grow as a character.
In the 13-episode Season 2, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Second Plate covers the story of the Autumn Elections and Stagiaire. The upcoming third season will cover the battle against Totsuki’s Elite Ten, the highest decision-making council formed by the ten most skilled students in the entire school. For those who haven’t watched either the first or second season of the Shokugeki no Soma anime or have forgotten the story after a long year, this summer will be a great time to take a look at it.
July 4th’s release of volume 25 will be a limited edition. Those who pick up the manga will even get an early look at Totsuki’s Elite Ten with the new anime episodes on DVD!
Besides those ridiculously awesome reactions after tasting a delicious dish, this manga is known for its sensational scenes. Oh yes, you know what I’m talking about, don’t play dumb! Personally, I found those scenes so irresistible that my eyes were pretty much glued to the screen. For obvious reason, of course. Don’t judge me!
So before you start watching Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, don’t forget to fill your stomach and wipe your saliva! And brace yourself for Season 3 because it’s going to be EPIC! Get a taste of some Elite Ten action in the official Season 3 teaser trailer below.
