The first 2016 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine (cover pictured at right) revealed on Monday that the next issue will feature an "important announcement" about Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga. The second 2016 issue of the magazine will ship in Japan on December 14.
The announcement will mark the third anniversary of the manga's launch. The series' upcoming chapter will feature color pages to celebrate the announcement.
The manga centers on Sōma, who works with his dad at his family's restaurant. His dad is a culinary master, and he often hosts cooking battles with his father. His father then enrolls him in an elite culinary school that is very difficult to enter, and the graduation rate is only about 10 percent.
Crunchyroll streamed the anime adaptation as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America. The series received an event anime about the Aldini brothers in November. Viz Media publishes the original manga in North America.
The Shokugeki no Soma: Yūjō to Kizuna no Hitosara (Shokugeki no Soma: The Dish of Friendship and Bonds) Nintendo 3DS game will ship in Japan on December 17.
