    Here is a summary of Food Wars! The Third Plate according to MyAnimeList:

    The Moon Festival is Tootsuki Academy’s annual gourmet gala, where students compete against each other to earn the most profit through selling their cuisine of choice. But for Souma Yukihira, it is also his first opportunity to challenge the Elite Ten, the supreme council that rules over the academy.

    However, this is only the beginning of Souma’s war against the Elite Ten; a nefarious plot is underway that will provide Souma with the challenge he desires but will also shake the very foundations of Tootsuki Academy itself.


    The most recent season of Food Wars! is Food Wars! The Fifth Plate, which aired during the Spring 2020 season. Despite the season starting in the spring, it had to pause due to COVID-19. The season picked up again in July and finished airing in September.
