Mark your calendars, as the series is set to make its debut on TBS in the forthcoming month of October.
The manga’s narrative revolves around the journey of Gaku Kitada, a gifted mathematics scholar, and Kai Asakura, a young and equally gifted culinary artist. Following Gaku’s setbacks in his pursuit of becoming a mathematician, fate leads him to cross paths with Kai, who is running his own food business. Together, they embark on a new and exciting venture.
Kobayashi initiated the manga’s serialization in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine in September 2018. Notably, the third compiled volume of the manga was released by Kodansha in May 2022, with the fourth volume slated for publication on September 28.
Additionally, Kobayashi introduced the manga “Aoashi” in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in January 2015. This manga, based on an original story concept by Naohiko Ueno, served as the inspiration for a television anime that premiered in April 2022. Crunchyroll provided streaming services for the anime during its broadcast.
