Food Wars Season 5 Spoilers

The fourth season of ‘Food Wars’ had a pretty conclusive ending where the Rebels were finally able to defeat the Elite Ten. According to the manga’s storyline, the next two arcs are very brief and it is a possibility that the anime will wrap these up in a single 13-episode cour. The story skips four months ahead and takes place in a hot springs resort town; so we can certainly expect a lot of fan service here. Megumi and Soma will be sent to the town to investigate a mystery and they’ll end up sharing a room at the resort. As they’ll further delve into the mysteries of the crimes involving chefs, they’ll discover that a malevolent organization, known as the Les Cuisiniers Noirs, is at play.

They’ll learn that Les Cuisiniers Noirs includes great chefs, who secretly work under criminal organizations where even one small error could prove to be fatal for them. In the meantime, a school teacher named Suzuki, who works at the Totsuki Culinary Academy, challenges Soma for a Shokugeki and is determined to win Erina’s heart. He even boldly claims that his culinary skills are good enough to please Erina’s “god’s tongue.” The result of this Shokugeki will turn out to be very surprising for both the viewers and the characters of the story.
