Shokugeki No Soma: Food Wars!
 
So, I read a chapter of this manga in OtakuUSA and it look interesting. So I finally picked up the first volume a few months ago and fell in love with it. It's like Iron Chef wrote a manga. But here is the story line.

Soma is a boy who works with his dad at a family restaurant. Apparently his dad is said to be the best cook in the world, so Soma plans on surpassing him as the worlds greatest chef but can never beat him. One dad his dad decided to close the restaurant to go work for a friend of his in NYC. Soma goes ape and is then told to go to the elite Totsuki culinary institute. Those who graduate from this school become the greatest chefs in the world. But the school is so strict that only 1% of students actually graduate.

So it is up to Soma and his new friends to actually try and survive the school and become the worlds greatest chefs. At any time too they can be challenged to a cooking battle know as Shoukugeki. Where the parties pick terms and the loser has to abide by them. Will Soma survive? Or will the stuck up daughter of the dean force him out? The grand daughter is also a culinary genius who is said to have a pallet so refined that it is known as the divine tongue. Volume 5 is coming out shortly and the amine premieres tomorrow. I can not wait and i hope all of you pick it up. It is funny, witty, and an awesome plus is that at the end of each chapter, they show you have to make the dishes for yourself at home with budget friendly ingredients.

so go a read it and tell me what you think.

You know for a minute there I thought I was reading the plot to Toriko, I don't know why, but epic food mangas are really a turn off for me.

I'm not discouraging this manga, I guess I don't understand popularity in Japan sometimes.

Actually, I just wrote a review of the anime for CR Takeout newsletter. Did you realize that the recipes are real, given by chef (and model) Yuki Morisaki?

Is this topic going to be strictly or the manga or should I make an anime-based topic?

We should do both a Manga and Anime thread because the manga is going to be different from the show. Ive already spotted a ton of stuff they didnt do , including a very important battle which was surprising

Just remember that the anime is a compressed story arc, as opposed to the manga. It's not about fitting everything in, it's about telling a cohesive and complete story within the time (number of episodes) allowed. There will be a lot that gets omitted.

*spoiler* True but to cut out his first Shokugeki? seemed pretty big thing to keep out but it's understandable

Was his first Shougeki in the manga against the meat girl?

It was against the male Italian secretary of Erina Nakiri who is very feminine and muscular named Julio Rossi Saotome who was a seat member of the "Council Of Ten".
