The anime will be adapted from the Weekly Shounen Jump! manga written by Yuuto Tsukada and illustrated by Shun Saeki (best known as adult manga artist TOSH). It will be produced by JC Staff and will be directed by Tiger & Bunny’s Yoshitomo Yonetani.
The anime will star Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (No Game No Life’s Sora) as the titular character, Souma and will also star Risa Taneda (Beyond the Boundary’s Mirai Kuriyama) as Erina Nakiri, Minami Takahashi (Selector Infected Wixoss’s Midoriko) as Megumi Tadakoro, and Shizuka Ishigami (Daimedaler’s Kiriko) as Ikumi Moto.
The story follows Souma Yukihara, a chef’s son who dreams of working in his father’s restaurant and aims to surpass his father’s culinary skills. However, just as he graduates from middle school, his father closes down their restaurant to cook in America. He then gets challenged by his father to go to an exclusive culinary school where only 10% of the students graduate.
