This year's 44th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the upcoming Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma event anime will focus on the Aldini brothers Takumi and Isami Aldini.
The anime will premiere at this year's Jump Special Anime Festa tour. The event will visit nine cities in Japan from November 3-15. In addition to the original anime, the festival will debut the Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions film trailer, and the Tokyo stop will also feature a talkshow with the cast of Haikyu!!. Gintama, Haikyu!!, and Seraph of the End will also have anime screenings at the event. Weekly Shonen Jump will distribute 3,000 pairs of tickets through a random drawing.
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.
