The second season of Shokugeki no Soma might have just ended its run earlier this summer, but this year’s Anime Festival Asia Singapore will be bringing you seconds of this delectable series with an event on the main stage!
When: 26 November 2016, Saturday
Where to Catch It: AFASG16 Main Stage
Growing up, Soma Yukihira has always been helping his father out at his family’s diner, with the aim of one day succeeding it. However, things do not quite go according to Soma’s plan, as his father suddenly enrols him into culinary school one fine day. The catch – it is not just any culinary school, but Totsuki Culinary Academy, one of the most elite culinary schools in all of Japan with a graduation rate of about 10%. Action, excitement, fun and hilarity ensue as Soma and his new schoolmates strive to survive the rigorous challenges that Totsuki Culinary Academy throws at them, in the hopes that each of them may graduate and go on to be one of the elite chefs in Japan.
Special Guest: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu, the voice of Soma, will be making his second appearance on the main stage at the Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2016 (with his first visit back in 2014). This extremely talented seiyuu has brought to life one a many memorable character such as Kirito (Sword Art Online), Sora (No Game No Life), Sorata (Sakuraso no Pet na Kanojo) and Bell (Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka). Matsuoka’s abilities have not only garnered him legions of fans, but have also won him awards such as the Best Lead Actor 2016 (10th Seiyu Awards) and Best New Actor 2012 (6th Seiyu Awards).
While reputed to be painfully shy (at both shootings and live events), Matsuoka’s good nature and endearing awkwardness have charmed co-workers and fans alike. Be sure to catch ‘Soma’ live in action – this is one stage event not to be missed!
