After the premiere of the fifth and final season of “Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma,” which was broadcast from April to September 2020, fans are yearning for more. But unfortunately, the chances of a Food Wars! Season 6 is very low.
In general, creators won’t reconsider extending a show until it becomes hugely popular, accumulates enormous viewers and is critically acclaimed. Since all of those are true for this Japanese anime, fans are hopeful that the creators would work on the sixth season. The manga has received positive views and gathers enormous viewers since the release of season 1. As of March 2020, the manga sales reached 20 million.
Why fans think Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Season 6 is still possible?
Realistically, there is very little chance for Food Wars!:Shokugeki no Soma Season 6, as the Fifth Plate was the final course of the anime. Still, fans are hopeful for Food Wars Season 6. In their defense, the renewal of successful titles is a de facto norm in the industry.
Looking at the show’s popularity and devoted fan base, some industry experts think that it’s just a matter of time before we get Food Wars! Season 6. However, as COVID -19 pandemic is taking a toll on the entertainment industry, the production could be delayed.
Moreover, looking back, after the release of the Food Wars! Season 4, viewers thought that the fourth run is the conclusion of the anime series. But J.C. Staff Studio gave a big surprise with the renewal of Food Wars Season 5.
