posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed Food Wars! The Second Plate (Shokugeki no Sōma: Ni no Sara), the second season of the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma anime series. The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
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 home video releases list the anime with 13 episodes.
The main cast and staff from the first season will reprise their roles in the sequel. Hiroki Yasumoto is joining the cast as Subaru Mimasaka.
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.
