5.0 out of 5 stars The Legumes Magician Sept. 10 2015
By Katherine Chan - Published on
Format: Paperback
For those who avoided the first three volumes of Shokugeki no Soma due to over the top "foodgasms", you can take a deep breath and relax. While there's still some fan service (the cover says it all), the foodgasms have toned down and the volume is more battle oriented.

Volume four is a nice change as it starts focusing less on Yukihira Sōma , but instead on one of the important side cast, Tadokoro Megumi. As one of my favorite characters, I enjoyed seeing Megumi's character better fleshed out - while much quieter and meeker than much of the cast, Megumi's comforting and gentle take on food was a breath of fresh air. However, while gentle, she still demonstrates herself to be a force to be reckoned with (although she doesn't know it) and watching her play off of Sōma was a lot of fun. It was also interesting seeing the difference between some of the former Elite 10, and how even though they have achieved great success that even they can learn something new from their students. Like the previous volume, this book ended on a cliffhanger - this time with Sōma on the line!

The art done by Shun Saeki is absolutely stunning. The illustrations are highly detailed, well laid out, and the food images totally rival anything you could see on Food Network. You will want to stop and eat something while reading this manga. The story by Yuto Tsukuda is equally gripping. It can be slightly predictable, but no less really entertaining to read. Overall, if you enjoy food and food competition reality shows, you'll probably enjoy this series. The story line is fun, the art is great, and if you can't get enough, there is even an anime that is following the manga closely (you can watch for free on

The chapters included are:
22. Alumni
23. Proof of Existence
24. The Magician that Came from the East
25. Those Remnants

4.0 out of 5 stars Food competition surprisingly involving March 29 2015
By Johanna Draper Carlson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma Volume 4 tells us the resolution to the danger nice country girl Megumi faced in the third volume. Bad boy protagonist Soma has challenged the judge/instructor who threatened to expel her to a cook-off.

For some reason, the former graduate judge is stubbornly refusing to reward creativity or initiative until overruled by his boss and forced to participate in the contest. That raises the stakes, since if Soma can’t rescue Megumi, he’ll also be out of the prestigious school. Making everything about head-to-head competition certainly ratchets up the drama.

The boss has one good observation, though. He won’t let Soma be the one determining Megumi’s fate — since that would just mean she’d wash out later if she wasn’t able to succeed on her own skills. Although she would never have spoken up in the face of authority, now that she’s in this situation, she has to demonstrate her own value.

The competitions are the most attractive scenes to me. They’re where the drama comes down to the basic question of “who wins”, plus, they are the sections most focused on actual food. I learn things about various cuisines and how to prepare and combine ingredients, and the taste descriptions are ridiculously over the top. There are even recipes included!

I was pleasantly surprised by how the volume later provides an explanation for the judge’s arrogance. He’s a cautionary tale of placing the drive for success over everything else (even when stubbornness is necessary in the face of prejudice). In contrast, Soma and Megumi’s relationship (as well as their other friends) will, we’re led to assume, prevent Soma from making the same mistake.

This volume also sets up the next challenge, one where everyone individually competes to make a new egg dish for a fancy hotel breakfast… after staying up all night! Typically, we’ll find out the results in the next book.

Thankfully, the only significant fan service this time is on the cover. I’m not sure why the need to advertise something that isn’t even reflective of the contents, but I suppose some people will buy the book for that reason. Regardless, I keep coming back for the food and the face-offs. (The publisher provided a review copy.)
5.0 out of 5 stars Spoiler-Free Review Feb. 13 2015
By Zac Hanscom - Published on
Format: Paperback
Food Wars! Shokugeki No Soma, Vol. 4 is made up of two parts. In the first part, Soma has challenged a graduate of the culinary institute to a shokugeki, but with a twist. Soma won't be the head chef; Megumi will. Soma is relegated to the role of sous chef. After that, the students have to stay up all night preparing a dish for the resort patrons. The ingredient is fresh eggs. Like a few volumes before it, Vol. 4 ends with a cliffhanger.

Megumi's character is really well developed in this volume, and I can see why she's becoming one of the most popular characters. I can also see why this is becoming one of Shonen Jump's most popular manga series. The food dishes are spectacular, as always. I'm a pretty serious half-vegan - I eat cheese, but not eggs - but I found myself wanting to try the various egg dishes that the students make. If I ever do, of course, the eggs would have to be produced in a cruelty-free farm, and I don't think many exist in America. Food Wars! is by far my favorite of the three or four current mangas I read (I'm also reading a few older mangas), and I give Vol. 4 my highest recommendations. *****
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent storyline and great recipes! Recommended series! Sept. 16 2015

This volume contains chapters 22-30, the continuation of the the Hell Training Camp arc. The volume comes with about 6 recipes, more than what we've had in previous volumes, since it has no special side story. I'm up to date with the weekly releases, and I can say, each week has been a fun and enjoying experience. The volume cover artwork is beautifully drawn and colored, features the meat master herself, Mito Ikumi.
