Souma is back for another round of gastronomic duels in the kitchen, and Warner Brothers Anime has started streaming a brand new PV for the upcoming second season, which is titled Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma: The Second Plate (Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara). At the end of the video, Souma says something quite shocking…

Wait, what?! Souma is going to quit cooking?! Say it ain’t so! Looks like we will find out if he truly means what he said in the video, once the anime airs this July 2016. The video also introduces us to several cast members.
