Default Shokugeki no Soma (manga)

Shokugeki no Sōma


Synopsis, screenshots, recommendations

Yukihira Souma's life goal is to surpass his father as a chef, and to become a full-time chef at their Special-of-the-day restaurant.
However, Souma's father decides to close the restaurant while he works as a chef abroad and then challenges Souma to study at and graduate from Tootsuki Tea ceremony and cooking academy, an elite culinary school where less than 10% of the students graduate, if he is to have any hope of surpassing him.
Can Souma survive?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This has personally become one of my favorite manga series already, particularly among Weekly Shounen Jump series, having marvelous and richly detailed art with excellent character designs and deliciously detailed food.
All the characters are varied and fun; Souma in particular has become one of my favorite manga/anime protagonists, being a well-written and highly likable character.
I heartily recommend this manga to just about anyone, even people who generally do not like shounen series!

I might look into this, it does sound rather good.

Chapter 7
Finally someone got around to translating this. About time.
Pretty cool, actually. We're given some superficial introductions to the other people in the dorm in a kinda casual and natural way that doesn't feel like the clichd "now there'll be a slideshow of minor stuff happening each time this character appears in front of the main guy, just to get a sense of the character's personality" type of setup.
Names, temper, and some clues as to the preferred types of food. Good, we can get to know them from there.



Now, I think that the whole

Really looking forward to what's going to play out in the next chapter!

I just started reading and am up-to-date. You were right, this is a great manga. It is just really well executed.

Edit: I would also like to add that I love how the main character Yukihira is set up. He is very talented, but not perfect. As well as the fact that he is the only person at school who is not rich. This makes him a strong but still relatable character.

He's not the only "poor" guy there, but he's one of the few.

But yeah, he's far more relatable, and he's generally just cool as hell!

I like how

Just started this half an hour or so ago after seeing Brainblow mention it in another thread. I've just read 5 chapters without pause, this really is a fucking awesome read!

It looks like we're away to start with the main part of the story now, and even if it only matches the previous 5 chapters it'l be a great read. I think i'll get up to date with this before i go to sleep!

Oh, and could you guys make sure and use spoiler tags please?

EDIT:

So i finished reading it all last night before i went to bed, and BrainBlow is right, this is an awesome read.



I'd watch the shit out of this if it was ever adapted into an anime. Seems doubtful though given the subject matter.
