Character of the Month: Sōma Yukihira

Happy to serve!

Sōma is an energetic and optimistic boy who has the constant drive to improve his cooking, mostly due to his strong relationship and rivalry with his father, Jōichirō Yukihira. He is confident in his skills and always seeks to challenge others to prove his abilities and test the limits of his cooking.

He is confident in his skills and always seeks to challenge others to prove his abilities and test the limits of his cooking. Because of this, Sōma constantly finds himself in very difficult situations in his various duels and challenges which would break the spirits of most chefs.

He is spontaneous, adaptable and unorganised, for example during the camp when things go wrong, he can still quick adapt to the problem and turns things around.

He has an outgoing personality and is willing to talk to anyone about cooking, but he also tends to attract trouble because he doesn’t hold his tongue and follows his emotions before logic. When insulted or harassed by others, he stayed quiet and preferred to settle things through cooking.

Sōma is not afraid to admit that his opponent is better than him at that moment and that he is not perfect, but he refuses to give up. As such he is not afraid to examine his own deficiencies and is even eager to learn whatever he needs to in order to overcome them. Sōma’s lifelong goal is to become a better chef than his father and thus will fight to the very end to achieve his dream. He will plunge head first into trial and error until he gets to the end results that he displays in his duels, spending days or even weeks exhausting every possible option until he finds the best one.
