There is an abundance of recipes in the series and Yuki Morisaki is the contributor for those. Till now there are 36 volumes for the manga. As with all popular mangas, Food Wars 1 also has an anime adaptation. J.C Staff has adapted the said manga into an anime series and it had made its debut in April of 2015. The anime was renewed and the second season was released in July of 2016. The year after that was the time for the release of the third season.
The title of the fourth season was “Food Wars! : The Food Plate” and it aired in October of 2019. The fifth installment is said to be the final one and it has already been released in April of 2020. New episodes are being released at the time of writing of this article. The pandemic messed up the previous schedule for the anime. Delays occurred because of that.
What is the plot of “Food Wars!”?
The story of this series is mainly taking place at the Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute. This school happens to be one of the most elite cooking schools in Japan and only a handful of students manage to graduate every year from the prestigious institute. Most of the students that are enrolled in the culinary school are from the high school named Totsuki. But transfers from other schools are also allowed provided that they pass the required entrance exam.
The best infrastructure is available there, as is expected. The school includes many research societies or clubs and large spaces that are utilized for competitions. As this anime has been running for five seasons and sometimes the quality of the series has fallen. But it has managed to pick itself up and there is still a stable fanbase for the series. So, overall the verdict is good.
When will episode 10 come out?
The network will release the tenth episode of season 5 on 4th September 2020.
