Shokugeki no Soma (食戟のソーマ Shokugeni no Sōma?) or Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma is a Japanese manga about cooking and culinary skills serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, written by Tsukuda Yuto and illustrated by Shun Saeki/TOSH in collaboration with famous chef Morisaki Yuki. The series ended with its 315th chapter, but received 3 additional side story chapters in the Jump GIGA magazine.


Shokugeki no Soma tells the story of a boy named Yukihira Soma, whose dream is to become a full-time chef in his father's restaurant and surpass his father's culinary skills. But just as Soma graduates from middle school, his father, Yukihira Jouichiro, closes down the restaurant to cook in Europe. Although downtrodden, Soma's fighting spirit is rekindled by a challenge from Jouichiro which is to survive in an elite culinary school where only 10% of the students graduate. Can Soma survive?
