Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Fifth Plate, which is of course the fifth season of Shokugeki no Soma, is one of those anime that suffered having a hiatus due to COVID-19. But now, the staff have finally released a new PV for the anime. It not only teases the continuation of the series, but also announces its July 3 return:
The anime itself will be restarting its broadcast on July 3, and will continue on. The anime was delayed starting with episode 4, with COVID-19 to blame. For now, Japanese channels which were supposed to run the anime this season have been airing reruns of Season 4, The Fourth Plate.
The anime itself premiered last April and was supposed to be part of this current Spring 2020 season. Crunchyroll, one of the services streaming the fifth season, describes its story as:
With his father’s recommendation, he decides to enroll into “Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute”, a school for the most elites of the culinary world.
During his time there, he has grown so much as a chef through studying hard with friends and competing against rivals in shokugeki battles.
Soma has now moved up a grade and he has finally grasped what he has always hoped for; the first seat at the Totsuki Ten Masters Council.
In the meantime, an invitation to a world-class cooking competition known as “BLUE” arrives to Totsuki. “BLUE” is one of the most authentic gastronomic tournaments for young chefs seeking fame.
However, there’s been a change to this year’s system and themes are all out of ordinary!
There’s spark in the air as the new rivals appears from the shadow!
Where will the “BLUE” lead them!?
The shokugeki to determine the new bearers of culinary world is about to begin!
Now, who here is excited for the continuation?
