It shouldn’t come as a shock but all good things must come to an end. Or in the case of Food Wars, a final dish must be served up. In Weekly Shonen Jump’s 27th issue of 2019, it was officially announced that Shokugeki no Soma would end after 3 more chapters. The anime adaption of Shokugeki no Soma has had 3 seasons so far and stopped right in the middle of the Central Arc. Fans have been waiting for an announcement for months about another season. Sadly they received this instead.
The fact is the manga is much further ahead in the story than the anime, so it comes as no surprise to manga readers. The announcement in Weekly Shonen Jump did hint at a special announcement that would coincide with the final chapter, but no additional information was provided. Written by Yūto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki, Shokugeki no Soma reached 15 million print copies series wide in 2018.
Viz Media currently publishes the manga in North America. Volume 35 is set to be released on June 4th. What arc have you enjoyed most so far in Food Wars?
