Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma Manga's 19th Volume Bundles Original Anime

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
19th volume slated for July 4

The official website of Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga revealed on Tuesday that the manga's 19th volume will bundle an original anime DVD on July 4. The anime will follow Sōma and his friends on a short summer vacation before the Autumn Elections. The anime will be 25 minutes long.

The manga's 18th volume will bundle the Shokugeki no Sōma: Takumi no Shitamachi Gassen event anime, which debuted at last year's Jump Special Anime Festa tour.

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.

A television anime adaptation of the manga aired for 24 episodes from April to September 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the first anime adaptation as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America. A second season, titled Shokugeki no Sōma: Ni no Sara (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Second Plate), will premiere this summer.
