Although both series are different with premises, they do involve food as part of its gimmick. Toriko and Shokugeki no Souma revolves around action with food being part of the main course. Both series' main male protagonist are eager to prove themselves to others. They face off against powerful adversaries in their quest to perfect their skills. Both series adapts battles although their style have great differences. There is an adequate amount of comedy present along with characters of diverse nature.
Delicious food that will make you want to spend all off your money in a 3 star restaurant. Combine that whit a lot of action and some of the most badass monsters I have ever seen. That is why toriko is a masterpiece. Bet believe me the cullinary battles in shokugeki no souma can be as exciting as one of the fights in toriko. Both manga can suck you into their story without even trying, the emotions seem so real that you just cannot ignore them. The main characters of both manga are a lot alike, they both want to become better chefs and step out of their ordinary lives to achieve this goal. Be prepared to embark on a journey like never before! read more
Despite the gimmicky way both series attempt to adapt a shounen series, they are clever with their style. The main characters from both series engages in conflicts related to cooking. There's a wide variety of flavorful dishes that are presented in both series. Their perspective stories also has uniqueness for its satirical themes. Definitely recommended for anyone who is seeking a manga with unorthodox style of writing.
A school where only cooking geniuses can survive. And a boy who wants to be able to pass all the years in that school. Both manga revolve around cooking and cookiing battles. Although there is a big difference between the motives of the two main character (I'm not going to spoil it for you) you should try them out if you are into cooking.
Soma is basically Addicted to Curry's shounen version, we have a main male who's a great cook and keeps winning cooking battles. Well, Soma has ecchi when people eat food, Addicted to Curry has ecchi in other parts xD
Two series based on the idea of culinary arts. Curry naru Shokutaku and Shokugeki no Souma tells the story of a young man with a talent for cooking. Throughout their story, they encounter allies and foes who tests their abilities to their limits. There are a variety of dishes presented throughout both series (although Curry naru Shokutaku specializes in curry). Relationship dynamics also become a focus as the MC forms a bond with the main female character and vice versa. Expect drama, comedy, and a roller coaster of fun with food thrown at your face.
Shokugeki no Souma focuses is a culinary cooking school that focuses on all aspects and elements on how to cook a first rate food, it contains lots of friends, harem ofc and do not forget the foodgasms.
Both go to a unique school setting where you rise to the top using your skills. Cooking in Shokugeki no Souma, making money in Ichiba Kuragane, and both with MCs arrogant enough to think they'd get to the top.
Hello, this is my first recommendation. Both of these manga have a similar plot: new kid transfers into an elite school and makes waves his first day. Both Ichiba and Soma have eccentric personalities and are passionate about what they do and want to improve. If you like Shokugeki no soma and want to start something new and not long, please check out Ichiba Kurogane wa Kasegitai
Soul Catcher(S) and Shokugeki no Soma are shounen series that have similarity in terms of their competitive atmosphere. Both series takes place in a school life setting where the main character begins a journey. While their motivation and premise are dramatically different, the main character's spirit has a familiar feel. And as we learn more about the main characters, we also see the connections they establish that becomes important to the story.
Gin no Saji and Shokugeki no Souma chronicles the journey of a main protagonist who enters a field of study that may change his life forever. Throughout their journey, they master certain skills that makes them stand out and earn the respect of others. There is competition when it comes to the work but also the same time has its rewards. Gin no Saji is more defined by its life style tone of the story while Shokugeki no Souma has more food gimmicks in shounen style battles. However, both series has a similar feeling when it establishes their journey to become professional talents.
The main characters differ quite a bit, but both enter schools that specialize in one area. Both manga go into great detail about their respective subjects. Souma has more conflict and a shounen feel compared to Silver Spoon's slice of life style, but both a diverse cast of characters.
Although both series take place in different settings, they both portray the theme of culinary arts effectively with their premise. The main male protagonists are skilled at cooking and seek to become a skilled chef in their world. At the same time, they face competition and demand from others. Both series test the skills of the characters as they are challenged to their limits. Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) has more school life gimmicks with fanservice while Nobunaga no Chef delivers more realism with historical themes. I recommend both series if you are looking for a conventional manga of culinary arts.
Shokugeki no Souma and Gamble Fish shares a common trend of competition. The main male protagonist has a clever mind and often thinks of clever tactics against their opponents. Throughout the story, they are not afraid to take risks and put major stakes on the line. Both series are also infamous for their fan service that has a bit of metaphoric imagery. There is a considerable colorful cast of characters that makes both series' story quite appealing.
Shokugeki is the fanservice version of Mister Ajikko. Both are cooking manga about a talented boy from a humble background trying to distinguish himself in a world of high-class cuisine. In both manga the protagonist is already really good in the beginning. The way the battles play out and the way the food is described and portrayed are identical. Both will give you cooking ideas you probably shouldn't try. You're not good enough.
You'd enjoy both since they somewhat have the same concept. In Bakuman, the protagonists 'battle' using their mangaka skills, while in Shokugeki, they 'battle' using their cooking skills. They have 'rivals' who aren't totally against them; rather, they encourage each other in their own ways. Both of them are great page-turners! They'll leave you wanting to know what comes next. Both inspire readers to keep pushing towards their goals and dreams.
Regarding the writing style, they both make you feel like you're in the protagonists' position so you want to keep rooting for them. Even during intense 'battles', there are some funny parts which balances the manga's atmosphere, making it a light-read.
I give both a 10/10! I hope you thoroughly enjoy them as I did. read more
Well the premises are different from each other, but they are quite similar:-
- Both mc's try to achieve the highest spot attending high school.
- Both mc's undergo a similar kind of training, to face the world from a different mentor
- Both mc's gain helpful friends in their school life.
- they have a knack of helping others
Erina in Shokugeki and Narumi in Beauty Pop, both are heir of a rich family. Souma in Shokugeki and Kiri in Beauty Pop, both are son/daughter of famous chef/hairstylist father who runs a small shop. Relationship of Erina x Souma and Narumi x Kiri is quite similar.
If you like a bit of light reading about some teen MC trying to be the best with a twist of ecchi and comedy, then you might enjoy the two of them.
Both MC are determined and carries a unique set of skill before setting off towards achieving their goal, which makes them stood out against others. Despite their apparent boon, they don't become the best straight away, and this is probably one of main drawing point of these manga. Souma and Nozomi both struggles and adapts creatively on tackling most of their problems. What's more to like is that both MC are blunt, which could make you laugh a bit here and there.
If you like reading Shokugeki no Souma and want more comedy and ecchi, go read Keijo!!!!!!!!
If you like reading Keijo!!!!!!!! and want an interesting plot with loads of excitement, go read Shokugeki no Souma  read more
If Food Wars is "fine dining", then the Drops of God is fine wine. While both are completely different by any means, the two involve cuisine in the sense of the character's reactions. However, Food Wars is much, much more overexaggerated than the Drops of God, especially since it is a Shounen, whereas the Drops of God is a much more mature, concise, and intelligent story.
While following a different set of principles and premise, both series has an innate similar feeling when it comes to the style of their story. Both series' main male protagonist has a hotblooded personality and is always eager to take on any challenge. Their relationship with others offers a wide variety of emotions with other characters. There is the concept of 'battles' that takes place throughout both series' story although portrayed different. For Beelzebub, they involve action with shounen gimmicks at school. For Shokugeki no Souma, it revolves around food competitions satirized by clever ideas.
Weekly Shounen Jump and Shounen Magazine are probably the two most dominant manga companies today and these two series are very similar in the way they tell their stories. AKB is based on the real life idol group AKB48 and a main protagonists who cross dresses so he can participate in auditions to help his love interest while Shokugeki no Souma is about a boy who tries to meet his fathers expectations by going to a top class chef school and becoming the best chef there. The art styles are very similar and alot of the panels are dedicated to tiny detail things like ingredients in food and how certain idol groups perform relative to one another. Nothing extraordinary about any of the characters besides them either being really good cooks or idols. read more
Despite one manga being about A.T. and the other about cooking their overall feeling is very similar. Also, both are beautifully drawn shounen with tons of eroticism included (and it never gets boring!) Not to mention the protagonists are basically the same.
These 2 mangas are by right, fundamentally different, but carry similar traits.
Similar: Both the main characters have this initial introduction of one that has overcomed many obstacles and opponents, then they start on a journey due to some reasons, and start facing more powerful opponents at a high risk.
They are very shounen-ish and reminds me of One Piece. The main guy character's design is kinda similar too.
Different: Shokugeki is a cooking manga with a side focus on ecchi while Gamaran is a samurai manga focusing on sword techniques, combat instincts and the like, and has consideable gore.
Ai and Souma are both raised by a lone parent, we didn't even know where is Souma's mother nor Ai's father
Souma's father, Juuichiro, is a top class chef... and Ai's mother, Mai, is a top idol
both Souma and Ai are left behind by their parent to let them grow by themselves, Souma is sent to Tootsuki Gakuen, and Ai is sent to Bannamu Pro, and there, they gain new friends and rivals, also they had so much senior that acknowledge their talent after battling them
as the story progressed, both Souma and Ai are slowly going to reach their parent
Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) and Dungeon Meshi takes an approach at culinary arts in a rather unique style. There is a dynamic amount of focus on the diverse range of food dishes. In addition, the expression of their flavor and texture is very detailed. While both series' premise aren't alike, the main characters does undergo through challenges to make these food dishes. Shokugeki no Souma is also well-known for its fan service (some dubs it as "foodgasm") while Dungeon Meshi contains fantasy themes.
Both have talented MCs (Main Characters)
They have lots of battles (Souma is battles with food awesomeness and Kikou is with cute girly magical killing machines)
Both MCs have strong senses of right and wrong and get into trouble fighting for Truth, Justice and the Japanese Way (a few ppl should get that joke)
Though they are both pretty good... Souma is waaaaaaaaaay more epic (as of chapter 27) just sayin'
