Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's original Food Wars: Shokugeki no Sōma comedy 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.

Viz Media is releasing the manga in North America and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
