Anime info and plot
On April 3, 2015 a new anime series titled “Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma” about a hard life of future chefs premiered on the Animax channel, the online anime streaming service Crunchyroll and Anime Digital Network.
Shokugeki no Souma is basically "Hell's Kitchen" for beginners, because all the characters in this new anime are the students of a prestigious culinary school, and only a few of them make it to the graduation while most are being ruthlessly expelled during the course. Only future chefs remain who are worthy to be working at Michelin star restaurants.
The main character of Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma, Yukihino Soma takes on the challenge of his father, a great chef who has never been able to win in a culinary battle, and enrolls into a famous culinary school. Here, he faces a lot of rivals – young men who are just like him are obsessed with cooking.
Soma, it should be noted, is a cook who likes to experiment, likes to combine the most incompatible ingredients, quite like the animators of the J.C. Staff studio, we might say, who made this anime series. This comedy series contains a lot of scenes that make parody of your typical anime clichés. For example, the emotions that restaurant visitors experience while tasting Soma’s father dishes are depicted very erotically and equivocally. Soma also acts like some kind of superhero in the kitchen.
It is unlikely that Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma will get renewed for a second season – the subject of food is quite narrow. Although, the example of James Oliver proves it wrong – the guy keeps producing cooking shows year after year and viewers don’t seem to get bored with him. If Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma DVD sales are satisfactory, there might be another season of the series, and in that case we are looking at summer of 2016.

Shokugeki no Soma has been officially confirmed on the cover of the most recent issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
