    Default Shokugeki no Soba is a「Thread」where the title won't change as you expect

    Didn't see a thread for this yet, so here's one of the new Jump series.
    Hidden:

    It's a cooking manga about a boy who wants to surpass his father. It features over-the-top, often lewd reactions to tasting food. I've got mixed feelings for it so far since I really enjoy cooking manga but the fanservice feels pretty forced and the MC just feels like a generic shounen protagonist. We'll have to see where it goes.

    Chapter 1: http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics...-no-soma-r7530

    My favorite page:

    Havent read it in english yet just skimmed trough the raws, but from what i got it's a story about a cook who brings people to orgasm if they eat his meals^^ Could be good. The art is done by tosh who up to this point only done hentai manga as far as I know.

    Read the first chapter. It's like Legend of Koizumi with food. A bit much for me. I'll probably just stick with Toriko.
    I called it wrong, so long ago. I guess this needs to be changed.

    Don't insult the Legend of Koizumi like that. This manga is nowhere near as good.

    I was just talking in terms of the reactions, not the sheer quality.

    This one looks a lot like Hell's Kitchen but with more fanservice, it has the same elements like elite cooking school and using everyday ingredients and recipes on original ways.

    Not bad but Hell's Kitchen seems like a superior work to me.

    chapter 2 ended in a cliffhanger.
    I like how he intentionally chose something so down to earth, just to piss off the celebbitch.

    I guess we'll get to see the tsundere orgasm next chapter.

    If I were to helm a food manga, it would be called ARIGATOUNI and be about Italian/Japanese fusion and then after the eighth chapter of poor ratings it would become a battle manga between the Italian faction of spaghetti lassoers and the Japanese faction of mayonnaise cannons

    Willing to give this a shot. Seems to have promise, though with the cliffhanger I'm not sure if a romantic subplot is something I'm looking for in a cooking manga.

    As for a good cooking manga, Iron Wok Jan. It's a shame more scans aren't up (and I don't have money to buy the physical copies).

    even for Jump, this series is reaaaaally fan-servicey. the art is really pro though, and the humor is pretty good (I liked the scene in chapter 2 when some haughty asshole is making a speech in narration text over a background image and at the end it goes HWAAUGH and then on the next page you see the protag has him in a chokehold). probably will be popular. I agree that Hungry Joker is toast.

    The art IS superb. The food looks great too.
    I'm seeing more and more talented ero-manga artists moving to the larger field of normal manga these days.

    No wonder, they build up their respective fan base with Hentai and take those fans with them to their "normal" series, trying to attract an even larger audience.

    Are mangas made by hentai artists frowned upon or not? I mean Japan has such a weird relation with pornography.

    Isn't High School of the Dead quite popular?

    There is also Aiki by Isutoshi, a favourite of mine. Not very popular I guess but it has been running for quite some years.

    Didn't Kohta Hirano, the creator of Hellsing and Drifters, used to also be a Hentai artist?

    Yes, Hirano did also some hentai works before Hellsing. But I think they were mostly dojinshis and the like.

    This is more about well known and established hentai artists jumping to regular publications.

    Then Oku comes to mind, although Gantz is generally considered a steaming pile of... well, you know.

    The author of Yotsuba and Azumanga Daioh was an ero mangaka.

    It's a little different when going from porn straight to a shounen manga.

    All the artists mentioned above are seinen manga, which is for grown adults already anyways.
    When a former porn artist goes to children's manga field, they often use different alias.
    Notice Shokugeki no Soma art is credited to Shun Saeki, and not "tosh".
