This elite institution is filled with culinary giants like Erina “God Tongue” Nakiri, who does her best to keep a lowly short-order like Soma from even making it inside the door. However, if the snobs can dish it out, Soma can serve it up, and when he learns that only a handful of the students manage to graduate every year, he swears that the only way he’ll leave is as number one in FOOD WARS!

When the cost of that path becomes apparent, will the two of them be willing to pay the price for a true happy ending? Even if it’s achieved, how long can it last in a world where Mirai’s mere existence is seen as a lethal threat?
