    It seems like a pretty fairly standard practice. There are a few routes in becoming famous, but the two most common ones (at least the ones I have seen) appear to be (1) Being an assistant to another artist (2) Crossing your fingers and writing doujinshi/hentai. Since it is common practice, I don't think these guys are frowned upon (heck, in most cases, I think their art looks better than the former at times).
    I am completely blanking out on his name, but the Love Hina/Negima guy got his start from hentai too (as well as produce hentai versions of his original work at the same time).

    PS:
    Azuma was a hentai artist? (looks up on the interwebs). Wow that just blows my mind.

    Since we don't know what kind of polls these new series are getting, we have no idea how popular they are with readers.
    But as far as online reviews and popularity goes, it seems
    Kiruko-san >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Shokugeki no Soma >>>>>>>>> (oh there's another series?) >>>>>>>>>>>> Hungry Joker.

    Let's see if that's reflected in the polls a few month from now.
    Me personally, would like to see Cross Manage, Soma, and Kiruko-san survive, and axe goes to HJ, Kurogane, and Date instead.

    Including this series, I gave 5 new series in Jump a try (and I'm going to give HQ!! a quick read after this post), and I gotta say, I'm looking forward to the next chapter of Soma more than any of the other new releases this year.

    Admittedly, that's my bias because I like the concept of cooking in general. But I'm hoping this sticks around.

    And even if it is part of the story's "charm, I wish the fanservice was taken down a lot of notches so I don't feel perverted reading this.

    Considering the artist's stronger points/past works, I highly doubt it
    Still, it is a pretty decent piece of work so far and the art is fantastic.

    Me too. Cooking manga are usually pretty fun.

    I actually thought this chapter was a lot better than the first one. More cooking, less fanservice, but it still had a lot of passion. I thought that the perspective of the art was really good on this page too:

    Chapter 4.

    Awesome. The president of the school is awesome, and even more, the protagonist really is a Luffy of Chefs.
    I did not expect this manga to be this cool.

    yeah chapter 4 was pretty fun, especially how the competitiveness got illustrated. It's gourmet aristocracy.
    I really didn't expect it to like it that much because I don't normally don't care for fan service. But in this the fan service has a kind of comedy effect.
    It's just funny how over the top the reactions are. Also I should be annoyed how by how erina acts(given how her character is somewhat quite the anime stereotype) but I'm not. Seriously why do I like this again...?

    Also
    http://www.batoto.net/read/_/146229/...h3_by_casanova chapter 3 is out

    oh and the raw for 4 for those who are interested

    Could you tell me what Soma said when he talked on a stage podium? I want to know why every student seems pissed off XD

    He's challenging the students. He doesn't plan to lose against the bunch that doesn't even show their faces to their costumers. Also he doesn't think of the academy as a stepping stone to cooking stardom (this is the real deal for him) and he declares to take the top place among all of them.

    Oh, thank you.

    He is Luffy in this series indeed '@'

    At least the principal (Erina's gramp) likes him, so I bet he can go wild as much as he wants~

    Seems like I did a small misread sorry regarding the stepping stones part, he thinks of the students there as nothing but stepping stones.
    Also a full translation has been released on mangahelpers http://mangahelpers.com/t/eru13/releases/36513

    Oddball reactions, strange cooking techniques and lots of intricate food descriptions? Now where have I seen this before...?

    This looks like the straight version of Toriko. Might give it a try.

    Wasn't expecting what happened in Chapter 3 so this series upped a bit more to me. And you gotta love the toned-down TLRD-like orgasmic food reaction right there. I wonder what's gonna happen next for Soma to somehow be accepted in the school (though I'm guessing it the school President has something to do with it based on Aohige's comment on chapter 4).

    "I only think of this academy as stepping stones" lmao, I like this guy already.

    Plus cooking since the age of 3? It's like price of tennis, but with cooking.
