DVD ships with 25th manga volume on July 4

The official website for the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma television anime began streaming the third promotional video for the new Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma original anime DVD (OAD) on Tuesday. The video features the members of the Council of Ten.

The website began streaming the OAD's second promotional video in March.

Akira Ishida will play the council's first seat member Eishi Tsukasa (seen in key image below on right). Hisako Kanemoto is again replacing Risa Taneda as Erina Nakiri. Taneda played Erina in both television anime series, but her agency announced in August that she was going on hiatus from voice acting to focus on medical treatment for an unspecified illness. Kanemoto also played Erina for the Jump Special Anime Festa event anime that premiered in November.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Minami Takahashi are reprising their roles as Sōma Yukihira and Megumi Tadokoro, respectively. Additional cast members include:

  • Shizuka Itou as Rindō Kobayashi, the council's second seat
  • Rie Kugimiya as Momo Akanegakubo, the council's fourth seat
  • Kana Hanazawa as Nene Kinokuni, the council's sixth seat
  • Yuuki Kaji as Terunori Kuga, the council's eighth seat

The DVD will ship in a special edition bundle with Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's 25th Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga volume on July 4. The main staff is returning from the television anime series.

The 24th volume of Tsukuda and Saeki's manga also shipped on Tuesday and bundled an anime on DVD. The anime debuted at the Jump Special Anime Festa event in November. The DVD features the bonus short video "Nakama Ryō-ban Shokugeki no Sōma: Ukiyo wa Mazui yo."

Tsukuda and Saeki's manga previously inspired two television anime series. The first anime season 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. Sentai Filmworks also licensed Food Wars! The Second Plate, the second anime season. The 13-episode series aired in July-September, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
