The manga series Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma, features an extensive cast of characters created by Yuto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki. The series primarily takes place at Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute, an extremely competitive culinary school of which only a handful of students graduate each year. Students are judged on their cooking in a number of classes and events. Of particular interest is a competition called a shokugeki (food war), a cooking duel held in an indoor arena where students stake their pride and futures as chefs. The storyline follows teenage transfer student Soma Yukihira as he meets other students, some of whom start as rivals and antagonists, especially Erina Nakiri, the granddaughter of the school's dean, but later become allies when the story shifts in the 16th tankōbon volume with the arrival of Azami Nakiri, who brings sweeping changes to the school; and after the 30th tankōbon volume, with the introduction of a group of chefs called Le Cuisine Noir. It also includes characters from the epilogue chapters in Le Dessert.

When asked at Anime Expo about the diversity of characters, writer Yuto Tsukuda said "That was very important to me. I wanted the younger readers experiencing this manga to learn about different types of food and culture from different countries. I thought it would be great if kids reading the manga could grow up, travel the world, see unique dishes and remember, 'I saw that in Food Wars! when I was a kid.' "

The concept of the clothes falling off originated from "the idea of a girl eating food, and she expresses herself about the food with 'ecstasy'," but Tsukuda also realized early on that it meant they could also portray the male characters with clothes removed.

At Crunchyroll Expo 2019, Tsukuda said that he wanted to originally end the series soon after the Central arc, since it had shown that the growth of the key characters: "Soma's mental growth, Megumi's achievement of independence and Erina's development". However, he had doubts with have to resolve the relationship between Soma and Erina, so he rewrote the epilogue chapter for that several times before settling with the final.
