Season 3 of Food Wars: Shokugeki No Soma seems like it only just started. However this wednesday is the midseason finale for season 3. Just announced is confirmation that season 3 will in fact have a second cour. The second half will consist of another 12 episodes like the first half and will continue the current story. Fans of the manga have been waiting for a certain big reveal in the anime that was moved out of the first half of season 3. That reveal is Erina learning who Soma’s father is. The second half of season 3 is going to be interesting after she finds out at the very end of episode 12 who his father is.
Check out the announcement, preview video and the new key art for Shokugeki No Soma Season 3, Part 2. The second half is set to air April 2018. While the wait of a few months does suck, at least its not a short season like season 2 was. It will be worth the wait.
