Gen-chan (原ちゃん), the Revolutionary Old Man of Stew (煮込みの革命爺 Nikomi no Kakumei Jī), is a world class soup chef and is the owner chef of the popular oden shop "Gen-chan", which regularly has hundreds of customers forming 20 kilometer-long lines just to have a taste of his delicious stew.

His culinary abilities are so great that he holds the 21st spot on the IGO Chef Ranking, making him one of the greatest chefs in the world.[1] He also comes from a long line of soup makers dating back to his grandfather's grandfather's grandfather, whose culinary art he has managed to preserve.[2]


He is a short elderly man with a somewhat well-toned body, a red-colored nose, some wrinkles on his face and most notably he has an incredibly large handlebar mustache which covers up most of his face. His attire consists of a simple white wife-beater shirt and a dark red colored bandana with flowers on it.

Addendum Soup (継足し汁 Tsugitashi-jiru): Gen-chan shoots soup into the targets's nose or face, causing the target to pass out. Gen-chan claims this soup is from the time of his great-great-great-grandfather. This is used on a Spareripig during the Cooking Festival.[2]


Cooking Festival Arc[]

Gen-chan and the other top 100 chefs participate in the 50th Cooking Festival, where upon entering the Cooking Stadium he receives a grand introduction by the MC Munageh.[3]

Once the tournament begins, Gen-chan proves his strength when he clears the first preliminary round "Triathlon Cooking", getting past the swimming portion and easily subduing the beasts attacking him during the cycling portion. However, despite his great skill, strength, and high standing within the chef rankings, he is unable to get past all the preliminary rounds and ends up not reaching the Champion Tournament.[4]

AIR Arc[]

A year and a half later, he is one of the many people who goes to the World Kitchen to say their goodbyes to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set off to Gourmet World, and he and his fellow chefs promise to cook all the ingredients that they send.[5]
