Avex Pictures has another promo up for an upcoming CD release with the Shokugeki no Soma series, though this one clocks in a bit longer at just about a minute. The second Side Boys release is set to come out on September 16th 2015 and it’ll focus on Natsuki Hanae, who plays Takumi Aldini in the series. The promo is pretty quick and covers just the one song, but for fans of the show it’s worth it. It’s set for release on September 16th, 2015 and is priced at 1,200 yen.
Directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani, the series is being animated at JC Staff with Shogko Yasukawa handling the scripts and Tomoyuki Shitaya working on the character design adaptations. It stars Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Soma Yukihira, Risa Taneda as Erina Nakir, Minami Takahashi as Megumi Tadokoro, Shizuka Ishigami as Ikumi Mito, Maaya Uchida as Yūki Yoshino, Ai Kayano as Ryōko Sakaki, Taishi Murata as Shun Ibusaki, Yūsuke Kobayashi as Zenji Marui, Ai Kakuma as Mayumi Kurase, Rina Hidaka as Urara Kawashima, Banjo Ginga as Senzaemon Nakiri and Rikiya Koyama as Joichiro Yukihira.
The series is currently running in Weekly Shonen Jump by Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki with ten volumes to its name so far. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America digitally and in print form.
Plot concept: Soma Yukihira’s old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father’s culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school!
Can Soma really cut it in a place that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress to the school that he belongs there at all?!
