Food Wars: A Quick Recap
Ever since he was a child, fifteen year old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family’s restaurant as its head chef.
Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its “Shokugeki” or “food wars,” where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns.
As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test.
Food Wars Season 6: Will It Ever Happen?
Food Wars Season 6 Release Date
As much as we would love to see Food Wars Season 6, it seems unlikely for the anime series to return. Shortly after season 4 ended, Food Wars Season 5 came. However, season 5 will also be the final season for the series.
Food Wars Season 5 ended on 25th September 2020 and left the fans emotional. However, fans should not lose hope because there’s still other ways for the anime to return in the form of OVAs, a prequel series, or even a movie.
J.C Staff have aired 5 OVA episodes between 2016 to 2018. But, as of today, there are still no official confirmation about the future OVA or movie yet, but, who knows? We’ll keep you updated!
