(repost) 'Food Wars' Reveals April 2018 Premiere Date


Ever since the third season of the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma came to a sudden end last year, fans were wondering when the series would return. Luckily, a second part of the third season was confirmed to come later this year. 
And now we know when! The second half of Food Wars' third season is set to premiere April 8. 

Season four of the season, which is technically the second half of season 3, Shokugeki no Soma: San no Sara - Totsuki Ressha-hen, will premiere in April and the first trailer for the season teases major events of the Promotion Exams Arc. One such big event is Soma's big showdown with Hayama after his siding with Central, which sees the surviving rebels of Totsuki go against the Central's new Elite Ten in a series of even more aggressive challenges to stay in school. The opening for the fourth serving of the series will be "Symbol," performed by Luck Life, and the ending theme will be performed by Fo'X Tails.
The first key visual for the season also teased a somber tone, and further cements the importance of Totsuki's train and snow, which plays a major part in the Promotion Exams arc. Depending on how far the fourth season adapts, it could set up for the final confrontation between Totsuki's outliers and central as it is in the manga series.
For those unfamiliar with Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, the series was originally created by Yuto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki. The story follows Soma Yukihira, a young chef who one days wants to get good enough at cooking to take over his family diner from his father. But when graduates from middle school, his father shuts down his diner and tells Soma to enroll into Totsuki Academy, an elite cooking school where only one percent of students who enroll actually graduate. In order to survive in school and avoid being expelled, Soma eventually has to challenge and defeat any other chef that stands in his way.
