It is confirmed that Shokugeki no Souma has surpassed printing 1,400,000 copies.
This popularity though! I must say I'm surprised it got its own forum ahead of Assassination Classroom. Not that I'm complaining
I'm kinda speechless, the art is really beautiful; it's no wonder the series becomes so popular this quick. Without any doubt, art and b00b help a lot or should I say a@@ and b00b
This manga and something like HSD Kenichi have immense fan-service...yet for some reason it's never bothered me in this manga like it does in Kenichi. Idk, maybe it just doesn't seem as forced, unlike Kenichi where an intense or emotional moment becomes eye-rolling.
Shougeki is too far of Kenichi explicit fanservice. Who read Kenichi doesn't bother up with almost none type of fan service, this is incredibly exaggerated.
Also, Shokugeki has a smart way to make fan service, I think innovator.
I just remembered this news, it's a bit late, but it's always better put it here.
Shokugeki no Soma has an official twitter account now: https://twitter.com/syokugeki_off
Make sure to follow it even if you don't understand Japanese to support the series a bit and catch nice pictures eventually.
I'll be aware of it and bring news from there when something appear.
Shokugeki no Souma has been licensed by Viz Media. Volume 1 will have its stateside release August 2014. (Source: ANN)
I laughed when they said that they decided to not released in ESJ because the series is "a little racy".
At least they didn't give up to release the series in US because of this, I'm glad. I'll buy physical volumes probably.
Fun fact: Since Souma's generation is the 92nd, Hinako/Donato's is the 80th, and Kojirou/Fuyumi's is the 79th, that means Hinako/Donato are 27-28 years old and Kojirou/Fuyumi are 28-29 years old
Shokugeki no Soma is doing anniversary this week and to celebrate, some projects were announced:
-A character popularity poll
-A dish popularity poll
-A recipe championship
Thanks Eru13 for the information.
The first one is the commonest, every series have one of these. A dish popularity poll is more interesting for Shokugeki's theme. A recipe championship is also interesting. Would be the reward an apparition in the series?

Cool way to finish a meal. hahahahaha
Good to see that Shokuge is being profitable, its theme is good for these kind of things. That way, I think that Shokugeki's anime will be very well sponsored by food stores or trademarks.
