Manga creator Etsushi Ogawa has announced that he will launch a sequel manga series to his Chūka Ichiban! (Cooking Master Boy) manga series titled Chūka Ichiban! Kiwami on Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app in November 2017. New chapters of the manga will appear every two weeks.
The original manga is set during a fictitious 19th century China, where chefs from all over China competed in culinary tests of ability, and being a master chef granted one respect and authority.
The manga ran in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine for five volumes from 1995 to 1997, and the Shin Chūka Ichiban! sequel manga ran for 12 volumes from 1997 to 1999.
