Warner Bros. began streaming the fifth commercial on Thursday for the Shokugeki no Sōma television anime. Natsuki Hanae narrates the latest commercial as his character Takumi Aldini. The commercial also features rock band ULTRATOWER's opening theme song.

Warner Bros. previously streamed featuring narration by Shizuka Ishigami as Ikumi Mito, Minami Takahashi as Megumi Tadakoro, Risa Taneda as Erina Nakiri, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Sōma Yukihira.

Each commercial features the same narration: "Cooking decides everything at this school. The 'flavor' personal experience cooking battle starts! Shokugeki no Soma starts its broadcast in April 2015!" At the end of the fifth commercial Takumi says, "Let's make the special," and his twin brother Isami (played by Yuuki Ono) says "That's right brother!"

The series will premiere on April 3 on the "Animeism" block on MBS, TBS, CBC, and BS-TBS.

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

Yoshitomo Yonetani (GaoGaiGar, Betterman) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Shogo Yasukawa (Terraformars, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) is in charge of the series scripts, and Tomoyuki Shitaya (Bakuman., BlazBlue Alter Memory, Hatsukoi Limited) is designing the characters. Jin Aketagawa is the sound director, and Tatsuya Katou (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Medaka Box) is composing the soundtrack.

The rock band Tokyo Karan Koron will perform the ending theme song.

Saeki and Tsukuda launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in November 2012, and Shueisha will ship the 12th compiled volume on April 3. Yuki Morisaki, a cosplay chef and model, also contributes to the manga, and each volume of the manga features recipes. Viz Media is releasing the manga in North America.
