Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira dreams to one day surpass his father's cooking skills and take over as the chef of their small family diner. However, his aspirations come to a halt when his father announces the closure of their restaurant, as he must travel abroad for cooking-related business.

In the meantime, Souma is urged by his father to attend Tootsuki Culinary Academy: a world-renowned school where expulsions of incompetent students are commonplace. Due to the curriculum's rigor, any student that manages to graduate is recognized as a chef of great caliber. Reluctantly agreeing to the proposition, Souma heads to Tootsuki's high school division for the entrance exam. Little does he know, he will soon begin a new chapter of his life—one that entails new friends, daring rivalries, and sleepless nights.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Background

Some of the recipes used in the series are compiled in the manga volumes by the collaborator chef, Yuki Morisaki. A recipe book was released June 4, 2015 featuring both recipes from the manga as well as new ones exclusive to the book, written by Morisaki with illustrations done by Shun Saeki.

Shokugeki no Souma has been published in English as Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma by VIZ Media under the Shonen Jump Advanced imprint since August 5, 2014. It has also been published in Polish as Kulinarne Pojedynki by Waneko since November 2016.

What was once a shining star in the overall mediocrity of Shonen Jump’s catalog, finished its run worse than the likes of Death Note and Fairy Tail’s endings. I kid you not. Yes, I said Fairy Tail, and no I don’t think I’m being facetious. I have no words — I mean how could I? There is nothing to say, nothing whatsoever. Any effort would be a waste, and yet this intellectually fickle mind is doing it regardless. Take that how you will.

I see that the other reviews aren't that positive but don't mind if I do:

Art is perfect. However, the part where the manga REALLY shines, are characters. Some people aren't happy with the recent development but after almost 300 chapters of couse someone will drop it. Personally this manga is the absolute #1 one best thing I've ever read and invested myself into, so if you are wondering whether to read this - of course you should it's a god damn masterpiece.

I have one problem: The ending is a bit rushed. I don't like that they skipped some battles so I've been wondering whethet read more

Spoilers Ahead!

Here's a perfect example of a series that didn't knew how to end.

Shokugeki no Souma is a cooking manga with some culinaries battles between all the characters. Those battles are called "Shokugeki". What's interesting with those battles is the rivalty of the characters who are friends between each others. Excepet at some moments, Shokugeki no Souma doesn't have a villain. The story is actually not that bad, the manga is well-drawn and the character are pretty interesting for most of them.The shokugeki are pretty interesting and sometimes stressful with some interesting recipes. In general, Shokugeki no Souma was a pretty fun manga and read more
