Shokugeki no Soma

Name: Shokugeki no Soma
Alternative Name: 食戟のソーマ; Sokugeki no Souma
Author: Tsukuda Yuuto
Artist: Saeki Shun


Shokugeki no Soma is one of Weekly Jump's newest additions, along with Hungry Joker and Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san.

Quote:

Shokugeki no Soma is a cooking manga. Like many food-related mangas, this one involves a lot of "food reactions."

The story revolves around Yukihira Souma, who is the son of a great cook. The story starts off with an urban life planner wanting to buy the Yukihira Restaurant. Will Souma be able to drive the urban life planner and her thugs away with his cooking?

Warning: This series involves a lot of ecchiness.

If you are unfamiliar with what food reactions are, check out Yakitate Japan.

Chapter 1:

So, it's basically ecchi version of Yakitate? Quite interesting, hopefully it's gonna involving various kinds of gourmets, not just limited to breads.

aohige 2012-11-25 06:53

Well, it's sorta like Curry naru Shokutaku, a seinen manga about curry but with full of erotic shots.

The base story in Soma is very shounen manga like.
Also the manga artist went by the name "tosh" and published adult oriented manga before this.

Chapter 2:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

Shadow5YA 2012-11-29 17:47

Drawn by the h-artist Tosh, eh?

NoemiChan 2012-11-29 18:08

It'll be great it the female tasters will describe the taste, smell and texture of the dishes in a perverted way... LOlss

*Its rough and hard in the outside..ohhh.. the smell.... ahh.. but when put it your mouth is soft and addicting.. ahhh.... the juices are playing in my mouth.. ahhh oishi!!!!

Read the first chapter and it gets a

from me!:D

I know some people are probably gonna say something about some parts but honestly I can enjoy humor that even involves naked men:heh:

Looking forward to next chapter and our ojou-sama, she looks delicious!:p

Hopefully this doesn't follow the norm of these types of stories, like where he challenges someone to a cooking battle off the bat and is beaten and then has to struggle for some time before making his name.
Or could be the misunderstanding beginning, where he's caught up in some huge misunderstanding which more than likely leads to a cooking battle which he either gets beat and struggles or wins but still ends up having to struggling with others afterwards.
Well I think whatever they decide to throw at us I won't really mind anyway, as it's drawn by TOSH!!!:love::bow:

Seems like all the reactions are just censored H scenes.

I think I'll check out the artist's older works...:D

Kleeyook 2012-12-01 06:22

Well, it's on weekly JUMP shounen. So there's a chance it might get axed if it didn't do well enough compared to the mainstream manga published in that mag. :(

Most cooking manga have a tendency to be ridiculously too long but I'd be sad if this one were to get axed within just 20 chapters. :(

ragez2010 2012-12-01 09:54

maybe this manga can replace Addicted to Curry in Young Jump? it's going to end in 3 chapter right.

Well, it better does. I really hope so! Addicted to Curry is very long and it's damn time for a new kind of cooking manga to replace it.

I'm not sure if this one will stay as long as Yakitake Japan! though. This manga has too much ecchi imo. We need more creative parody and pun that don't rely too much of ecchi contents. Maybe add a butt-monkey sidekick.

blade82 2012-12-01 17:30

there is another manga about food "hell's kitchen" and its really good its written by a true chef

Vladrave 2012-12-01 23:06

This manga looks interesting. I hope it will stay good until the end and i want moar!!
I've had enough of shonen mangas that i'm anticipating then get cancelled in the end....

aohige 2012-12-02 10:18

^Well, to be fair, 2012 has been a very good year for new Jump manga.
They managed to get a mega-hit with AC, and HQ and Saiki quickly rose to be steady hits.

Having 10 or so canceled series is normal for Weekly Shounen Jump, it's always been that way for decades.
That being said, I hope Soma does well. It's a fun read, and I actually was sad when the 2nd chapter ended in a cliffhanger, because I wanted to see the inevitable reaction. :heh:

Kleeyook 2012-12-02 16:24

^^ I know what Saiki is. It's an awesome and hilarious manga. I don't recognize about what AC and HQ are though. You shouldn't just use abbreviation on everything. :(

Man, JUMP is good for getting their manga popular and well-known fast but it's high risk to lose the series within a few dozens chapters. Considering that cooking manga is usually very long with many chapters planed ahead and detailed research, it'd be a huge waste to get caned like most unfortunate series. :(

Is the 2nd chapter translated yet?

Zakoo 2012-12-02 18:32

I have to admit, that was terribly funny.

Especially the part with the beef, god japan, too much imagination for me.

Shadow5YA 2012-12-02 19:57

Knowing who the artist is makes this too funny. Did that businesswoman have an orgasm eating Souma's cooking?

Sarun 2012-12-02 21:34

Yes, she did.

Anyone saw the spoilers.

He's referring to Assassination Classroom and Haikyu!!. The former bucked the trends of what makes a shonen manga, I think, which is exciting.

I'm not sure how I feel about this series. I really like food manga and I want something with such good art to do well, but this level of ecchi really shouldn't be in Jump.

At least, unlike Addicted to Curry and Yakitate Japan, this manga won't pigeonhole itself to a certain set of dishes. There's only so much to talk about when it comes to just one kind of food. Plus, this series seems to emphasize uncommon transformations instead of just doing something right like how Addicted to Curry is about the MC bringing up foreign curries to a Japanese diner, so it shouldn't run out of things to do too soon.
