Warner Bros. Japan unveiled guests and details featuring Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma the Fifth Plate for their first online virtual panel, “Stay Connected with Anime.” The panel will be streamed as part of Anime Expo Lite on 3 July at 10 PM EST, also featuring Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Guests Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (voice of Soma Yukihira) and series director Yoshitomo Yonetani will appear in the livestream for a Q&A. The program also features a pre-recorded “Real Shokugeki! Soma vs Asahi” segment, in which Matsuoka and Jun Fukuyama (voice of Asahi Saiba) face off in a culinary battle judged by Minami Takahashi (voice of Megumi Tadokoro).
Fans can submit questions for the Q&A on Twitter using the #foodwars_ax20 hashtag between 22 June and 28 June.
Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma the Fifth Plate premiered with two episodes on Crunchyroll in Spring 2020, and is set to resume in July.
