Background

This culinary adventure series began as a manga series, which was written by Yuuto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki. Serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since November 2012, there have been 27 volumes released so far. Interestingly enough, the recipes featured in the series have real thought put into them, as Japanese chef Yuki Morisaki continually provides guidance on the cooking sections!

The first season of the anime aired in April 2015, while the second season aired in July 2016.

Characters

Soma Yukihira (CV: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu)
The protagonist of the series. He is quite the likeable young man, with an enthusiastic and friendly personality - traits that come through in his cooking and in his customer service. When it comes to cooking, his specialty is his unique and creative approaches to all sorts of dishes. The only time you will see him deadly serious is when he is cooking or in a cooking battle.

Erina Nakiri (CV: Hisako Kanemoto)
Erina was raised to have an eye and taste for gourmet culinary cuisine - as such, she has a unique skill called “The God’s Tongue,” which allows her to accurately scrutinize and analyze any ingredient that has gone into a dish. Initially, Erina is part of the Elite Ten, and is manipulated by her abusive grandfather, who happens to be the school’s director. She considered herself superior to common cooks until a turn of events leads her to befriend Soma and other cookies. With her new friends, she gained the courage to defy her caretakers, and subsequently left the Elite Ten to help Soma and the others improve as chefs and become her own chef.

Megumi Tadokoro (CV: Minami Takahashi)
Initially shy and lacking in confidence when she first began attending Totsuki Culinary Academy, her friendship with Soma eventually paved the way for her to grow both as a person and as a chef. She aims to become a skilled chef at her family’s inn. Given her background, it’s unsurprising that her specialty is creating foods that make customers feel treated and loved!

Takumi Aldini (CV: Natsuki Hanae)
Handsome and half-European, this aspiring chef considers Soma his number one rival since they both want to be chefs at their own family-owned restaurants.
