Opening, ending themes previewed for anime premiering July 2

Warner Brothers Anime began streaming a second promotional video for Shokugeki no Sōma: Ni no Sara (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Second Plate), the second season of the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma anime series, on Wednesday. The video features the opening theme song "Rough Diamonds" by SCREEN Mode and the ending theme song "Snow Drop" by nano.RIPE.

The video also introduces the main characters and previews the first match of the autumn elections, [highlight the white space to read spoilers] Soma vs. Alice.

The series will premiere in Japan on July 2. The anime will air on Tokyo MX at 10:00 p.m., and on MBS at 26:28 (effectively July 3 at 2:28 a.m.). The show will also air on BS11 and Animax.

The main cast and staff from the first season will reprise their roles in the sequel. The second season's cast so far includes:

  • Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Sōma Yukihira
  • Risa Taneda as Erina Nakiri
  • Minami Takahashi as Megumi Tadokoro
  • Junichi Suwabe as Akira Hayama
  • Nobuhiko Okamoto as Ryō Kurokiba
  • Natsuki Hanae as Takumi Aldini
  • Saori Ōnishi as Hisako Arato
  • Chinatsu Akasaki as Alice Nakiri

Hiroki Yasumoto is joining the cast as Subaru Mimasaka.

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.

An original anime DVD will be bundled with the manga's 19th volume on July 4. The 25-minute anime will feature an original story about Sōma and his friends during a short summer vacation before the Autumn Elections.

The television anime series adapts Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga. The first anime season aired for 24 episodes from April to September last year. Crunchyroll streamed the first anime adaptation as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America.

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.
