Er… not in that way.

Last week, Bandai Namco launched a smartphone game based on Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, titled Shokugeki no Soma: Maximum Impact Recipes (Shokugeki no Soma: Saikyō no Recipe Okawari!! . The title, which is available on both iOS and Android, is a free-to-play game which is part Cooking Mama and part card-fueled collect-a-thon.

To promote the release, Bandai Namco started airing a series of commercials, which recently hit the company’s YouTube channel. You can check these out below:

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma adapts Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki’s manga of the same name. The series kicked off in April 2015, and ran for 24 episodes. Yoshitomo Yonetani (Nurse Witch Komugi, Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising-) directed the series at J.C. Staff, while Tomoyuki Shitaya (Bakuman, Kiss×sis) provided character designs. Scripts were provided by Shinichi Inotsume and Shogo Yasukawa.

The second season, titled Food Wars: A Second Plate began airing on July 2. Yonetani will returned to the director’s chair for the season, with Tomoyuki Shitaya back on character design duties. Shogo Yasukawa (Terra Formars, Hyperdimension Neptunia) stepped in to write the new season’s scripts. Jin Aketagawa is serving as sound director on the project, while Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club composer Tatsuya Katou scores the soundtrack.

Sentai Filmworks announced that they acquired Food Wars: A Second Plate. The series is currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
