Shokugeki no Soma is a manga written by Tsukuda Yuuto and drawn by Saeki Shun. It was originally released as a one shot, but then got very popular, so it turned into a manga series in the end. About 130 chapters has been released for this ‘food wars’ manga. The anime adaptation was then released during Spring 2015 and it totally increased the popularity of the ongoing manga right now.
While SNS is not your typical shonen (it also has ecchi in it) anime and manga, it still appeals to all kinds of watchers and readers. J.C. Staff really made a good animation with this one. I totally love the art and characters that they brought!
Moreover, what most people look forward into this manga is … food!
SNS introduces you to wide varieties of creative and delicious food that Soma, the main protagonist, made. They were all made with normal graded ingredients when most of the other students in the anime used the high quality and expensive ones. The food that were represented in the anime also has it’s original real version!
I totally fell in love with the food! They all looked really delicious and it always makes me hungry! Cooking fans should really watch this anime (especially those who love food!). It has intense situations that is actually connected to real life, and badass characters who make heavenly foods like it was nothing! I’m really excited to see where will the anime end, perhaps the end of the Autumn Preliminaries? I don’t want to spoil the fun by reading the manga, so I guess I’ll just wait until the anime ends!
