Last year we said goodbye to one of Weekly Shonen Jump's most long-lived and famous works: Food Wars - Shokugeki no Soma. The story was about an aspiring cook, Soma Yukihira, who under the pressure of his father will enter the prestigious Totsuki academy where he will face various challenges. After seven years of work, the story ended in August 2019.

After publishing some special chapters on Food Wars, the authors took a natural break. However it seems this stop has been very short since Weekly Shonen Jump has announced the return of the couple formed by Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki. For them, in the number 25 that will arrive next week, a self-contained chapter with color pages will be dedicated.

The leaked Japanese name is Yuugen to Jorei Gakkyuu and the low quality preview that you can see in the tweet below seems to suggest an action manga, therefore very different from Food Wars focused on cooking. The Shun Saeki's style is unmistakable and surely he will be able to give wonderful designs as already seen in Soma's challenges. The Japanese release of the chapter is scheduled for Monday 25 May while it is still unknown whether it will be translated into English by Viz Media and MangaPlus.

Meanwhile, the fifth season is about to arrive for Food Wars.
