This year's 47th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that the Food Wars! The Second Plate (Shokugeki no Sōma: Ni no Sara) event anime that will screen at this year's Jump Special Anime Festa event will have an original story, in which Soma and friends are at a hot springs resort for a day off. The event anime will feature a table tennis battle for Megumi and Isshiki, a fishing showdown between Soma, Hayama, and Kurokiba, and an open-air bath scene with Erina and others.
Hisako Kanemoto will play Erina Nakiri for the event anime, replacing Risa Taneda. Taneda's agency announced in August that she was going on hiatus from voice acting to focus on medical treatment for an unspecified illness.
This year's Jump Special Anime Festa event will first take place in Tokyo's Yomiuri Hall on November 27, and then in Sapporo's Sapporo Cinema Frontier, Nagoya's Toho Cinemas Nagoya Bay City, Osaka's Toho Cinemas Umeda Main Building and Nanba Main Building, and Fukuoka's Toho Cinemas Tenjin Main Building on December 4.
The anime franchise adapts Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki 's Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga. Sentai Filmworks licensed Food Wars! The Second Plate, the second season of the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma anime series. The company plans to release the series on home video. The 13-epsiode series began streaming on Crunchyroll last July. The final episode aired in September.
The first anime season aired for 24 episodes from May 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.
