so far we have kurokiba, ibusaki and marui in the top 3, with souma and akira left remaining. who will be left out?
How will Alice score?

She should be close to Erina levels and better than her assistant, so I expect a 97-99.

I love how all the other students in the audience keep looking down on the contestants, only to have their egos crushed and replaced with pure despair as they realise they can never ever hope to achieve that level of greatness.

Alice & Megumi's score remains. Alice goes next.

Who said anything about gaijin? You'd think they would start mass archiving all their manga so that in the future when they can't find shit in print anymore they won't have to worry because it's all in the digital archives.

But I guess I overestimated the mind of nips. Their IQ is too low to think that far ahead. They must have their waifushit now, right this moment.

Keep in mind that their interactions are still at a minimum. Erina will warm up when the plot progresses to a put where she and Soma spend more time together

>>101463668
Yeah, she totally didn't want to humiliate and destroy both Soma and the Bowl club.
>>
>>101463793
She was unaware of Souma's abilities. On the other hand, Erina is still a bitch after the fact.
>>
>>101463793
mainly because she was Erina's lackey at the time
>>
>>101463833
The thing I hate about Erina is the fact she had the gall to lie about Souma's food, saying it tasted bad, just because of her own pettiness. For a person who takes such pride in tasting, it's a pretty damn clear mark against her if she's willing to do something as dishonest as that.
>>
>>101463833
Are you saying she treated them that way because she didn't knew about his abilities? That's just ridiculous. She would be still a bitch if Erina hadn't ditched her and Soma hadn't raised her flag?
>>
>>101463963
Yup
>>
>>101463875
Yeah, and you could see her inner conflict the whole, right?

When this gets an anime, I am going to stay the FUCK away from /a/'s threads. It'll be Hataraku all over again. At least the Megumi love will be justified.

In the grand scheme of things, she hasn't done anything majorly bad. What, you rather she passed him through that taste test without a word? Tosh made the following chapter interesting because we had no clue how Souma was going to school if he failed the test, Erina playing dirty was required.

Hell, it's like hating Gollum for being so loco over the Ring in LOTR.

It's the fact she would lie despite taking pride in her taste and telling it as it is. If she did something like that, she obviously has no pride as a taste tester and is untrustworthy as a judge.

It's a despicable thing to do as a person in general, not just as a judge. You obviously don't respect the art of cooking if you let your petty pride deprive someone worthy of their chance at success.

>>101464630
Not that this excuses Erina, but cooks are human too and some of them have really twisted personalities. Take Shinomiya for example, he threw out that poor sob for using the wrong kind of hand soap and almost drummed out Megumi for being slow. I don't remember people screaming about him being an asshole in these threads.

Sometimes the author has to make the best for the plot instead of pandering with perfect waifus.
>>
>>101464736
It's because she deprecated cooking. If she's willing to lie about good food being bad, she's probably willing to do a lot worse considering how food is the law.

>>101464785
>not giving a fuck about Alice

>Who gives a fuck about Alice?

you most be VERY new, or very old and missed the last 2 months worth of threads about people going nuts over her...even though its clear that she is willing to fuck over anyone so that she can get a better ranking than erina.
Erina is a honest bitch, Alice is the sneaky kind.
>>
>>101464817
I understand that, but it doesn't excuse her bullshit or make her likable.
Sure she's a cunt for the plot, but she's a cunt all the same. It's not about being perfect, it's about being an egotistical, vain bitch who hasn't shown any sign of improvement through the entire series.
>>
>>101464900
its nice to skip over pages and full chapters that show Erina is not that big of a bitch just so you can complain about it.
>>
>>101464767

Well, there was a lot of talk about how he was a dick who wasn't trying to select for chefs, but just wanted students to be his little kitchen minions, back during the chapters it happened.

Also the manga established the reasons why he acted they way he did, and he stopped being a total dick by the end of the arc. He was still a dick, mind you, just with less totality.

Erina's just YOU CAN'T BE GOOD, YOU AREN'T CLASSY ENOUGH. GOOD COOKS HAVE TO BE CLASSY. GET OUT PLEBEIAN. TSUN TSUN TSUN. We still have no idea why she thinks like that, beyond "She is ojou-sama" and a suggestion that maybe it's something to do with Souma's dad? Maybe?
>>
>>101464899
Yep, I'm willing to bet she'll do a shokugeki against Erina and she'll lose.
Then Erina fall in disgrace arc with her going dere and all that.

>>101464817
Yes it's interesting, but at the same time it shows that she lacks integrity. It was an event that marred my perception of her completely because she threw away her pride as a taste tester just to get some petty revenge.
>>
>>101464900
>hasn't shown any sign of improvement through the entire series
I dunno man, that extra chapter where she goes to the pool with Alice showed that she could act okay towards other people. Alice is supposed to be her arch nemesis and rival, but they got along fine at the pool. She's a nice mentor to her lackey (Hisako?) too.

In fact, she's really only a bitch to Souma. I guess people will say "she cut off Niku", but it's not like they were particularly close friends, it was a more business-type contract they had.
>>
>>101465037
a teenager wanting petty revenge!? some one call the papers!
>>
>>101465087

I'm pretty sure that Erina:Alice::Souma:Takumi

Erina may just not particularly care that Alice is apparently her arch nemesis and rival.
>>
>>101465137
When you're a taste testing judge, one with incredible pride at that, who keeps bitching about her superior tastes, goes to throw it away like that, it gives a heavy red mark.
>>
>>101465137
/a/ always forgets that they're watching teens going through puberty in most shows.

They want unwavering morals and/or unrealistic ideals, and dammit, if she doesn't deliver, the girl is shit.
>>
I like how in Shokugeki no Souma food rapes people.
>>
>>101465275
If you ask me, it's weird that she's an appointed judge in the first place. Surely her gramps knows what her personality is like.
>>
>>101464900

If you are seriously saying that she hasn't been influenced by Soma and hasn't show any other kind of traits then you're just in denial.
>>
>>101465357

To be fair, from what we saw in the first chapter, pretty much everyone else at the school is some super rich kid who's the heir to super classy restaurants.

Presumably the rest of the Polar Star crowd got in via the middle school, which has less, uh, strict entrance requirements.
>>
>>101464737
You are half correct, TOSH is both the artist and author. As in Bakuman
>>
>>101464968
>no idea why she thinks like that
She's the granddaughter of the owner of the school, rich as fuck, taste tests for the best cooks in the world all the damn time, and was also pretty sheltered. She thinks that she's the Queen of the school, so when some random dude comes in and brings her to her knees with his completely ordinary dish that's not fancy at all, it's contrary to her queenly demeanor.

And as for her relationship with Jouichirou, my guess is that because of her refined tastes as a child, she didn't want to eat anything. So they brought in Jouichirou who got her to fall in love with his dish and also inspired get to become a chef herself.
>>
>>101465357
the thing is that while gramps bad ass seems chill, everyone else we have seen has authority in the school seems to be elitist as fuck .

which might be some of the reason why Erina is such a bitch, its what she grew up seeing, but at the same time she is not like that outside the school so as bad as people want to hate her she is not the unredeemable bitch people paint her as.

did you miss the part where they point out that she is only acting this way with souma, which makes it pretty clear is not her professional self who is making the decision to fuck with him but her emotional teenage tsun tsun mind messing shit up, hell she ended up looking pretty bad in the 10 seats meeting when naked apron senpai called her out on it , so its not like she wants to go around being like this.

again you are over looking the teenage/tsun romance angle and blowing shit out of proportion, if she pulls something like this during an actual challenge and to some one other than Souma then you can bitch and call her unprofessional all you want.

It's not intended, but considering how she's a judge and critic whose words carry a lot of weight, it's important that she's at least honest. And the fact she did it out of pettiness is the worst part, because it means she will do it again most likely for another petty reason and quite possibly ruin someone's life.

It's constantly ranked in the top 3, sells very well, has/had a crossover with Murata's OPM, and people do like it. The art is meh but the story is pretty good - for Jump.
>>
>>101466473
Because she is a fucking teenager who just got embarrassed by a dude she clearly is getting wet for, that made her make a shitty call.
again all the unprofessional "bullshit" she has pulled has been against souma , if she does it against some one else and in a clear determined and calculated way and not in a spur of the moment anger induced called , then i will agree with you.

until then she is just being a teenage girl getting caught off guard by her emotions and making a shitty call because of it.

you are basically saying we should stick with the beta MC who grows formula because it works, with out even trying for something new.

Souma and Hayama both beat Kurokiba with tied scores and move onto the finals, they agree to settle it there. One of Marui and Ibusaki pass on after another judging, we get a flashback chapter about them becoming friends before Souma arrives at Polar Star.

Alice gets the highest score in Group B, Megumi beats Isami but loses to Takumi.

In the finals, Souma faces Megumi in the first round and wins, more friendship stuff. Alice beats Hisako, Takumi beats Marui/Ibusaki, and Kurokiba pulls an upset victory over Hayama.

In the semi-finals, Souma beats Alice and Kurokiba beats Takumi who gives Souma a speech about rivals and friendships and defeating Kurokiba.

In the finals Kurokiba beats Souma with the power of love used for antagonists due to him beating Alice, Souma has another heroic BSOD about finding a student his age who he can't surpass, the next arc is the start of love power-ups.

Souma hasn't grown as a character, just his cooking skills. His personality is still very much the same.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with unconfident characters and documenting their growth, especially if it's an underdog story, which everything is for Megumi right now.

Souma's character development is probably going to be about letting go of his father's restaurant and going off to do is own thing. He's already begun to realize that there are chefs who are better than him and who he wouldn't have been able to meet if he hadn't gone to the academy, but it's probably something that'll take several years.

Alice best girl.

>There's absolutely nothing wrong with unconfident characters and documenting their growth, especially if it's an underdog story

except we have seen it a million times, and it was starting to take over the focus of the series which was never that.

also underdog stories kind of loose their meaning if the underdog stays the undedog for no other reason than to have a underdog, which is what megumi has been for a while now, she is there to have some one be the weak chef that show the rest that she can do it...even though all things considered she should be as confident and good as all of them because she has been in school for as long if not longer.


>dont want to read anymore underdog overcoming struggles stories

sure thing anon, now go away.

This was already discussed for a couple of hours and I think enough postures have been said for this thread.

A realization isn't character growth.

>>101470271
What his development might be doesn't change the fact that he doesn't have any.
>>
>>101470475
>A realization isn't character growth.

Yes, it is.

Just read the new chapter, pretty excited...
Only problem with these cooking manga is that they can never be great because I will never be able to actually eat any food like this

Would you like to see this? Toriko not included of course.

Then you must really hate Soma. All of his skill aside, he's not invincible and he's not from a top pedigree like the majority of the other students. He's an underdog, that's why he clicks so well with Megumi

>also underdog stories kind of loose their meaning if the underdog stays the undedog for no other reason than to have a underdog

You're making no sense since just about Every underdog story exists to show their growth and you see Megumi's growth after her Shokugeki with the alumni. Her confidence is going up, it's not all the way there yet, which is no surprise considering the story is still only just getting started but it's there. Her personality isn't going to do a 180 overnight.

>>101470519
An asshole learns that 2x2=4

Does he suddenly stop being an asshole?

Not saying Soma is an asshole by the way

New knowledge doesn't change you as a person, it just makes you more aware of certain facts.
>>
>>101470823
Maybe as a school exchange, it could even be a good setup for him and Erina to interact, challenging foreigners who sees them as inferiors.
I'm not too sure about wanting to see Soma after his school days (not saying that I would hate it, just not sure what to expect of it).

That's too much of just copying his father to me. I'd like to see him focus more on his ability to bring about great taste from mundane and cheap ingredients and proving to people that it's not about the quality of the ingredients you use
>>
>>101471063
You have money and you eat well you just can't afford an orgasmic food.

Get richer or get better. I don't have money but I eat really well, I was blessed to have been born in a family of people with good cooking sense.

Also, taste is, of course, debatable and different from person to person so I advise you to try stuff you might think you will not enjoy so it creates a surprise factor when you eat it.

Souma is the black horse, the unknown but quickly rising to stardom new guy, people stopped looking at him as a underdog the moment he won against nikumi and started acing classes.

he clicks with megumi because of his upbringing not because he is the "underdog"
>>
>>101471228
Whatever he does when he leaves is up to him, yours could also be a part of the same story I imagined.
>>
>>101470823
So long as he spends a few months working with the Aldini bros and then with Alice.
>>
>>101469097
I feel like it is pretty clear that it ends:

A= Kuro>Souma>=Akira>marui/ibusaki

B= Alice>Hisako>Takumi>Megumi
>>
>>101465927
Actually, Saeki Shun already used the name "TOSH" even before he made Souma
>>
>>101471416
As long as he gets visited by Hisako a few times because of Erina I don't mind at all!
>>
>>101471516
GUess I should add that I think Marui will make it over Ibusaki since Marui's specialty is significantly more interesting and versatile.
>>
>>101471516
Why so many people believe Megumi is gonna outrank Isami. I know he's not interesting enough for the story to keep focusing on him but it would just feel wrong if a girl who got her first A just recently defeated a guy with international experience.
>>
>>101462392

I hate bitches who are protected by the plot.

She has no chemistry with Soma whatsoever. Nikumi has already had a lot more interaction and development with him.
>>
>>101471699
Megumi is being hyped as someone with great unrealized potential, it's only logical.
>>
>>101471814
You do realize that before the manga ends, Erina and Soma are most likely going to be spending a great deal of time together right? The manga has barely even started, only 55 chapters, that's baby steps for a weekly shounen.
>>
>>101471830
I've actually see her as a very good chef that was just troubled by her shyness. I wouldn't like her to become one of the super elites, but that's just me.
>>
>>101471900
I don't know about that, it just hasn't been all too concerned with romance
There's definite romantic subplot it just hasn't been explored much
>>
>>101464021

Why would she have an inner conflict? It's a person she knows nothing about at the time. Everyone in the fucking school is competing with each other, and staking on his expulsion is hardly evil.

Soma himself says he'll use everyone in the school as a stepping stone you hypocritical cunt.
>>
Y'know what's kind of depressing?

Those two dudes in the Polar Star dorm that look like delinquents probably won't get any character development until right before they get expelled from the school.
>>
>>101471979
It's only 55 chapters in, what do you expect?

Still it already hurts as fuck to wait for another chapter, what the fuck are the translators doing?
Don't say eating or cumming over food
>>
>>101462774
With Isshiki as a member.

>>101472120
The translators are waiting on the redrawers.

How hard is redrawing anyways?
>>
>>101472120
recruiting
>>
>>101472211
what the hell is redrawing for that matter?
>>
>>101472251
When people clean a manga of japanese text, printing blotches or page fade-through, they often lose or thin some lines. Redrawing is drawing out the lines again that got removed or adding new ones where necessary such was when a removed japanese sound effect was overlapping with a character's shirt and changing it to english leaves a big white space where the sound effect was.
>>
>>101471988
Yeah I remember that time Soma went to the Tofu club and taunted them while knowing they couldn't defeat him.
>>
>>101472061
Are those two actually students?
>>
>>101469492

>Soma losing

Not happening. His dad told him not to lose until he can lose to him again.
>>
>>101472251
Exactly what it sounds like.

>>101472367
I would do it if I didn't have to spend 9 hours of my day holed up in a fucking office designing and printing labels...
I actually did it for fun when I was younger.

>>101472508
Souma will lose in the final anon. The arc after this one is a depressing one with his friends helping him get back on his feet. the end of will be him remembering what his father told him by either him coming back or Erina telling Souma about the chef she looks up (his dad) and he then comes back with a shougeki against someone strong or Alice


souma will lose in the final, count it. he needs to lose
>>
>>101472508
He learned that losing is part of the experience.
>>
>>101465295
Are you saying /a/ secretly wants Mary Sues that won't be obvious as Mary Sues at first glance?

Next chapter is Alice and maybe Megumi, after that do we finally get to see Akira vs Souma?

So this dude is gonna be the first real challenge for Souma from the elite ten, right?
>>
>>101475500
yes.


Souma will lose in the final and then after he comes back from the loss he challenges that guy and wins

at least I hope that happens
>>
>>101472445
Yes, they are on the first year too
>>
>>101475500
Probably
>>
>>101475760
That doesn't make any sense.

>Souma gets a win
>Next 30 chapters are Souma losing fucking everything, he's just losing with some style.
>"Don't worry dad, I won't lose again!"
>He fucking loses again
>Challenges an elite 10 member after being such a failure because fuck it
>He wins

Asspulls and non sequiter story telling like this is what pisses me off in a lot of manga.
>>
>>101475500
First real challenge? Souma has been failing almost the entire time in that school since he got there.
>>
>>101477081
The only times he's lost so far were against a former first seat of the elite 10 (and he wasn't even the main chef), and against his dad, the former second seat. He hasn't had any other major challenges since he got here, and he's only been in one other Shokugeki which he won.
>>
>>101477216
He also very nearly flunked out of the summer camp from the get-go,

The only victory he has under his belt is the shokugeki against Nikumi, using that as a basis for him having an easy time in the school is silly.
>>
>>101477483
>Flunked the summer camp
He did that to cover for Megumi, he didn't lose because his own cooking was faulty.
>>
>>101477000
I did miss a bunch of other shit, but the next arc will be a build up for his first elite ten Shougeki. he needs to get something valuable to wager first.


either it will happen next atc or the arc after if the author wants Souma to get mad depressed over the final loss and develop Souma along with other characters more

Naked-apron senpai will, if Souma has nothing of value to wager, wager his seat on the Shougeki for Souma
>>
>>101456650
>>101456751
There was a picture with (probably) the winners.
>>
>>101480746
It's actually impossible for both smoke guy and glasses dude to win, one of them gets replaced by Kurokiba. Other than that it's pretty accurate, I doubt Megumi will beat Isami.
>>
>>101477000

This. Is the shonen retardation rubbing off on people?

Soma ALREADY had his losing arc. He lost to the french guy and acknowledged it himself enough to get angry. He then lost again to his dad in front of his friends. His dad then told him not to lose again until they meet the next time.

I guarantee he will not lose in this tournament. To anyone. This is his chance to show everyone what a beast he is.

This is not an underdog story. Why do people think it is? The MC has been elite since the beginning.
>>
>>101483181
He has said that he is fine if he loses this tournament. A pic of it is somewhere in the thread.

He will lose, he needs a true loss at the hands of someone better than him. Souma will make it to the grand final but lose in it for sure. Until he loses properly to someone who isn't his father, he won't get better and like I said, this tournament is perfect for it.

He may even realise his muse next arc (which is Erina) and that is when he starts curbstomping niggers left, right and centre.
