The Tōtsuki Academy Alumni (遠月學園卒業生 Tōtsuki Gakuen Sotsugyōsei) are professional chefs who once students who attended Tōtsuki Culinary Academy and were among the 1% to graduate.


As mentioned by Senzaemon Nakiri, each year, roughly 1000 students start out in the high school section of Tōtsuki Culinary Academy. By the end of three years, the class size is significantly reduced, both because even a single failing grade is grounds for expulsion, and because of various class whittling events, such as the Tōtsuki Friendship and Rapport Training Camp and the Stagiaire, until finally, there are less than 10 students remaining who actually graduate.

Because only 1% or less of the students who enter Tōtsuki ever graduate, the few who do, the Alumni, are highly sought after chefs because they are the best of the best that Tōtsuki ever offers. Many have found a wide variety of success since graduating.

A majority of the Alumni go off to notable high class restaurants or become critically acclaimed experts of their craft, some of whom are world famous. Others even find themselves in executive positions in the culinary industry or even become instructors for Tōtsuki.

The Alumni hold strong ties to Tōtsuki after graduation, many of whom return every year to participate in the first year training camp, mainly so they can scout potential future employees for their restaurants. Several have also served as judges for Shokugeki matches.
