posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 38th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that nano.RIPE will return to perform the ending theme song "Emblem" for Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Fourth Plate (Shokugeki no Sōma: Shin no Sara), the fourth anime season based on Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki's Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma manga.
The band nano.RIPE previously performed the ending theme songs for the second and third seasons of the anime.
The new anime will premiere in October.
The manga previously inspired three television anime series. The first anime season aired for 24 episodes from April to September 2015. Food Wars! The Second Plate, the second anime season, aired for 13-episodes starting in July. The third season, Food Wars! The Third Plate, premiered in October 2017, and the second half of the third season premiered in April 2018. Crunchyroll streamed all three series as they aired, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed all three series.
Tsukuda and Saeki launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2012. Chef Yuki Morisaki is credited for cooperation for the manga. Viz Media releases chapters of the manga weekly in English on its app and website, and also releases the manga's compiled book volumes in English. Shueisha also publishes the manga digitally in English on its MANGA Plus service.
The manga ended its run in Weekly Shonen Jump in June. Shueisha's Jump Giga magazine is publishing a three-chapter Shokugeki no Sōma: Le dessert epilogue manga, and will publish the third chapter on August 29.
