Fucking edgelord Azami's reaction, god I fucking love Souma and how he is a master at BTFO'ing everyone in this series.
You must mate with my daughter and create super chef genes.
What the fuck is "Circle of the Demon Kings of Food"? I was sure I dropped Toriko a long time ago.
Can author make azami be more chuuni? It looks like he's trying his hardest to make him look EEVIL and threatening while the most he personally did was forcing Erina to trash food she would eat and making creepy entrances.
panels like these are one of my favorite things about this series. a protagonist that gives no fucks and has a crazy dynamic of goofy as hell and then super fucking cool is just so hype imo
Yeah I like that Souma can get serious and defensive when the situation calls for it, he clearly isn't intimidated or afraid of anyone in the series and I like that about him.
Erina, next chapter:
>Yes, I also love fireworks!
I wish Souma would go back to being more expressive once in a while.
He's only ever being smug, defiant, or goofy these days. He doesn't show the frustrated faces he used to from time to time.
I wouldn't mind this developing into full on Shokugeki no Smugma for a bit desu
Probably. It's still weird that they aren't showing him struggling anymore, even during the festival. It's like he just can't feel the frustration or show it on his face anymore.
And I'll also point out his frustration with Shinomiya felt uncharacteristic and forced. like they wanted to give him frustration without making him lose face so he got mad megumi lost instead because he didn't give her her ingredients half a second faster or cut the potatoes slightly better or some other shit. .
>like they wanted to give him frustration without making him lose face so he got mad
But he did lose face, sort of. He went all in with the dish to clear the expulsion and got a complete defeat from a panel of professional chefs that he was unused to competing against.
Still maintaining that curry just drops a load of drugs in his dishes to win.
He didn't walk shit through. He was forbidden from doing anything but menial labor. His skills were not tested in any way and his face was not in any way lost. The only bigger joke is that there's people like you who actually bought it.
Wew lad why are you so mad? Maybe he wasn't cooking but his frustration after the defeat felt natural to me. His competition with dad was good fun half the time and he wasn't used to losing to anyone else in any form.
Made him seem whiny at worst. It wasn't HIS loss, it was Megumi's. Her skills, her ideas, her guts were tested, not his.
That's why it felt so forced, Soma was furious because "he lost". But he wasn't even fucking competing.
Yeah, when he goes and bet his permanence in Tootsuki it just throws all the tension out the window.
I hope the catch is that one of these times he'll end up expelled for real.
Ok now there is the contradiction that people end up making. If his dad is the greatest chef in the world. And he was trained by his Dad for over 12 years, it is natural that Soma would BTFO everyone that comes his way like his dad did.
>uncharacteristic and forced.
Not really, Souma is very competitive and confident in his abilities after all.
Even if it wasn't his dish, he went for the win anyway, that's why he got so frustrated.
His dad didn't teach him. It was all trial and error by Soma trying to figure out why he got BTFO so much by Jou each time he lost.
Soma's skill was always sheer force of will, I'm pretty sure there's an extra chapter or something talking about it.
HIS ABILITIES, you fucking goof. If Usain Bolt was not allowed to compete in a race and got all frustrated because his sub didn't get the best time but still won the prize, he'd look like a whiny bitch.
>Wow the "student" I taught very little to didn't beat an internationally renowned superstar chef
Wow time to PUNCH WALLS
No, not really. He was a food processor and morale booster, nothing else.
So this is true waifu wars, huh.
Jou's 'diner skills' are high class. It's not the most refined way of teaching someone, sure, but Souma is learning international cooking techniques without even noticing it, nor knowing what they're called in the first place.
>Azami idolized Jouichiro and his philosophies in cooking
>Azami was probably used for Jouichiro's "experimental" food like peanut butter squid
>Azami grew to think this is a way of being a great chef like Jouichiro
>Azami ends up letting Erina eat disgusting food to train God's Tongue
Jouichiro's indirectly caused Erina's suffering
>Megumi getting mindbroken by Eizan and his goons, three cocks stuffed in her mouth (also anal)
>Souma blankly looks at her
>"I-I made new friends Souma-kun"
>"good for you Tadokoro"
>he walks away holding hands with Erina
>Hisako leaves behind a box of tissues
Did you miss the part where I said that he is very competitive?
That means that he doesn't like losing, no matter the circumstances.
I'm sure he would also be very upset if the judges Eizan bought really went through and refused to taste his dish.
He wouldn't have lost because of his abilities, but because the match was rigged, but it still would've hit him very hard.
But since you seem to be so upset for no apparent reason, let's just say that you're right.
There, happy now, anon-chan?
>Erina's Grandpa wanted Soma to fuck Erina
>Soma's dad wanted Soma to fuck Erina
>Now Erina's dad wants Soma to fuck Erina
>Soma: Uhm guys, i won't marry Erina.
>Soma: Yeah, i mean i want to become an even better chef than my father so i have to travel through the whole world and learn even more about cooking. I see you guys in 15 to 20 years. Bye.
>eugenics in my cooking manga
What a time to be alive.
Erina is for hand holding and card games and reading shoujo manga with.
That sounds a lot like Soma, but if we're going by what Jouichirou said and Soma has to find someone to cook for, then Erina would be the ultimate wife material for a chef, with her god's tongue and all.
Next thing you know Soma marries a hot woman who has nothing to do with the cooking world like his father did. I am hoping it will be Yaeko that woman from the 1st chapter.
>skips straight into Erina and Souma returning to the gang in polaris
>Erina flustered and angry
>Souma struts behind her with that I don't give a fuck face
>Apparently Nakiri and I are getting married
I can feel it
I can't decide how I feel about Shokugeki these days. I think it's going one way, then it does something unpredictable. I think it's going to do something crazy, then it goes back to the tried and old shounen cliches. I think it's too slow, and one chapter just blows through months of anticipation in an anti-climax. I think something's just a gag, but they take it the whole mile.
I can't tell if I still like this series or not.
He cant marry megumi anon, after graduation megumi has to go back and pay back all the money the fishermen of her villaged used to pay for the school by letting them continue to rail her 24/7 in her parent´s inn.
Is a harem end the only way to please these faggots? But then that would piss everyone else off. No one wins on this wild ride.
>That won't stop him from marrying best girl.
Well yeah that would not stop him...Why would megumi going back to pleasing old fishermen for a living have anything to do with Souma marrying the best girl?
Oh boy, I'd love that just for the banter.
shokugeki has always been a dick measuring contest.
every chapter there is somebody with a dick longer than somebody else and then the next chapter somebody else comes and makes that dude look small. and obv souma has the biggest of them all.
I still want to see both Erina and Souma's moms. Seriously, all this heritage shit flinging and I want to see banging MILFs
No, that specific "chef" is Gordon Ramsay.
There's really not a lot of money in pure cooking. That's why it irks my autism when they act like being good cooks makes them some kind of fucking aristocracy.
It's a pet peeve of mine, actually. Do the Japanese have some special fascination with nobility? It shows up all over.
I just realized something. The possible reason for both Azami and Erina hearing the revelation about Souma's dad might be that Erina will compare their opinions on Souma. Azami's most likely gonna consider Souma a disgrace for his superior in every way dad. Through his reaction Erina will realize thet she was unfair when it comes to Souma and will develop respect for him. The foundations have been laid already, so it, possible at least.
>Do the Japanese have some special fascination with nobility?
And I agree, it also bothered me, but not as much, how the chefs are portrayed on par with high class politicians. Usually they are just guys with shit health, shit pay, they do coke to stay on their feet during the whole day, they fall to alcoholism quickly.
My family is in the restaurant business and I can say that chefs, while essential, are not considered irreplaceable or stars, in fact when they act like divas they get dismissed pretty quickly.
In fact, something I've wondered about is how rarely the emperor shows up in /a/ materiel.
In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a Japanese emperor appear, ever. Plenty of shoguns, no Tenno. I wonder if it's because they're inconsequential, or because it's considered impolite.
The battles arent quite as good as before
Both the food and the reactions are so...meh lately. Generic hnnngggg and clothes tearing away shit
So Erina finally knows. Wondering how she will take it. I could see it going any number of ways since she's so emotionally conflicted right now. My biggest guess is that she's probably going to be mad for some reason.
I doubt Azami is going to be accepting of Souma. Seems like he put Jouichirou on a pedestal above the level of a human. Souma's existence is probably something like sacrilege to him or something.
it's weird, at first I thought Ryuko was sort of plain(not unattractive-plain, more uninteresting plain) like her character design was just a basic one to make up the numbers at the Polar dorm, but later on I thought she started looking super-hot
Oh right i forgot how faggotry niggers on here are
So much contempt.
Scornful Souma is pretty top though.
do you understand
>more pixels to process
DO YOU UNDERSTAND
>more data to transmit at a high rate of speed
DO YOU UNDERSTAND/!>!?!?
>Azami proposes to Souma on Erina's behalf
>she's so scared shitless of him that she can't throw a tsunfit until he's left her and Souma alone
Her thighs are the best. Just the best.
Also, can someone please post that every SnS thread ever image? I can't find mine.
>Souma never loses?
He lost twice in the Antum elections and have lost to his dad nearly 500 times
And he lost to that fag at the training camp and to a lot of people in the egg breakfast challenge
How is it even a fucking secret?
No one ever kept tabs on the dude everyone fucking looked up to? No one noticed his kid being enrolled into the most famous school in the world and whatnot?
Is he a CIA chef or something? They burned all traces of him for anyone trying to track him?
All these Erinafags hovering over Megumifags, but soon they'll be in the shithole too once
Nikumi wins in the end.
Also when are they gonna start cooking up some desserts? I know the food is all for main courses but I just want to see a sweets episode involving chocolate.
>Also when are they gonna start cooking up some desserts?
Valentine's arc for sure.
There's also Momo in the festival.
Wasn't Momo making sweets back in the festival?
No that isn't that one; it one that was a screenshot of the second ending where everyone was in the black soup, like pic related, with a bunch of text like 'chinkscans when' imonikai never' and shit.
Thanks anyway senpaitachi.
Found it in the archive.
When will they start bickering and teasing each other again? Best part of the manga for me and I miss it
>/a/ is just a tsundere girl
It all makes sense.
>adapt 3 chapters per episode
That would be rushing it just a little too much. If next season is also a 2 cour and has a similar pacing to season 1, the 2nd season should end after stagiaire.
The best part about Erina is that she mangaes to get people to like her despite being a shitty character. Like seriously I'm honestly impressed that she can get people to like her despite being a horrible person.
Don't worry anon once this shit arc ends and Erina is forgotten all will be right again. We all know Megumi will win in the end but this is just the mangaka teasing the shit out of us like Kishi did with the Sakura confessing to Naruto shitstorm. Let the Erinafags have their time in the sun cause even they know they already lost.
And Dojima never just asked Senzaemon if he knew what Jouichirou was up to? It's not like Jouichirou was TRYING to hide from everybody, he manned the same locally famous diner for over a decade.
>If souma is gonna challenge azami to a shokugeki I'm dropping this shit
I'd want that, to be honest. Souma would inevitably lose, of course, but that's the point. Souma needs to lose to someone again, so that we can get another training arc and he can whoop some E10 ass.
How would Azami feel if Jouichiro tell hims that the secret to cooking is love?
>most of the girls like a guy; only a few of them like other girls
>pretty much all of the boys are mainly foodsexual, some are mild homo, some are mild hetero, and Curry is Junsexual
Just starting the series, and I'm confused. Are they first year high school or third year middle school?
Okay, so I'm trying to understand the timeline, but it doesn't make sense to me.
>megumi leaves on the train to enter the middle school when she's 13
>first year middle school is 7th grade
>when she's a third year, 9th grade, they tell her she'll be expelled if she fails another class
>they promote to high school anyway
>she's 15 during the high school entrance exam
>first year high school is 10th grade
That doesn't make any sense. How can she be 15 entering 10th grade if she entered 7th grade at 13? And why did they even let her graduate to high school if she had failing grades?
>How can she be 15 entering 10th grade if she entered 7th grade at 13?
I think it's some kind of weird curriculum inside the school. Most of the 1st years in this show are 15, with some just turning 16.
>And why did they even let her graduate to high school if she had failing grades?
Maybe barely passing. Since she went to school in Tootsuki for middle school, her grades probably carried over to high school.
> 15 during exam
That means she could be 16 when the school start you dolt. Also, she barely passed the high school exam and has a failing grade since then before she met souma, not before the exam
Why are people so enticed by the idea of having HIsako win the Soumab owl? I don't hate the thought of it, but I really don't understand. She's not interested in him. She's like the character you hated for being such a tool before to a pretty cool bro.
I can't speak for the other Hisakofags, but to me, I just really like the progression between her and Souma. She was Erina's most loyal dog, so she pretty much vowed to like what Erina likes, and hate what she hated — which in this case was Souma.
Then after the tournament, she was suffering a rough loss for being a failure to Erina so she decided she wasn't an equal, and then off comes Souma to swoop in and show her she's been, as you said, a massive tool. The best part about this was, unlike Nikumi who instantly craved his cock from the get-go, she liked Souma to the point of thinking of him as an actually pretty okay guy, whereas Souma turned her into a pretty okay girl.
I guess the gist of it is, she's like Nikumi done right. You don't want to suck the dick of the guy who just humiliated you in front of the person you admired the most unlike Niku.
So I'm guessing that in the past Azami went gay but got rejected by Jouchirou and he went full edgelord.
It would be hilarious then if in future events Erika gets rejected by Souma much like the same way her father did and she goes full dark edgelord too.
I do kinda want to see Erika dressing up in goth outfits
>What's that Hillary girl doing? Is that a gummy turtle candy she's holding in her hands?
>Woah, that's just nuts! She's slicing and dicing that jello turtle like it's nobody's business! Just watch all that artificial cherry flavoring spray everywhere!
On the contrary, I think his first big defeat will be from Isshiki, because Isshiki is the only Elite Ten that he could challenge without needing to put untenable losing conditions on himself.
Why is everyone assuming Erina definitely won?
With Souma "only" saying that he is Jou's dad, yeah, Erina might start to have a crush on him but the problem here is how dense Souma is to love. He's the type that would definitely not recognize Erina's feelings. I don't remember this 100%, but I think that he never blushed because of some girl's hotness or something, making him pure foodsexual.
Definitely curious how this turns out
Not that anon, but he didn't say anything about Souma not having any romantic partners at all. I mean, that's pretty much how he'll beat Jouichirou in the first place.
His wife died, so he doesn't have someone to give his love-food. If Souma finds someone like that, he'll definitely win against Jou.
Last time I heard, Casanova has been having problems, so they weren't able to upload in a long while. Such a shame too, considering Casanova was arguably the highest quality of all the translated scans.
>His wife died
What do you think how she died? With all that toxic shit Jouichirou and Soma are always cooking it was only a matter of time until she died through food poisoning.
Jouichirou is probably responsible for the death of Erina's mother, too. Azami being a die hard fanboy of him he probably copied his cooking style and Erina's mother died through food poisoning, too.
I feel sorry for whoever ends up with Soma. That person will share the same fate like his mother and Erina's mother, death by SquidXSomeShit.
It's just there to make erina squirm like always.
He's been building points with her just by existing around her while she's slowly become less and less aggressive over time.
At the most, she'll get befriended or state openly she's after his dick and he'll ignore it because shounenz.
Just change kitchen to brothel and food to dick.
I was an apprentice chef for 2 weeks. I nearly lost a finger 3 times and quit because the hours were fucking terrible.
Most career chefs and cooks and drug addicts in my experience.
You should try the recipes they feature in this manga. They're actually really good.
>Most career chefs and cooks and drug addicts in my experience.
I can confirm. I can't go through a shift without smoking at least a pack. Sometimes I do a couple lines.
I would actually love it if this happened. You see, if Azami didn't believe it, and he decided to investigate, it's very possible that he'd call a trustworthy source like Gin or Jou himself. And the either or both of those two would start getting involved in the retaking of Tootsuki for Senzaemon. Shit's crazy, man.
So who exactly is Souma's Gin? Takumi? Curry and Dog?
No one because the dynamic is totally different. From the description Takumi would fit but his power level is below the two others. I can see him better than Dog one day but never Hayama.
>How come there isn't a line of people trying to get accepted there?
Because Fumio requires anyone who wants to enter the dorm an entrance exam which apparently, a lot of students fail. Fumio gets the best, of the best I suppose, being obsessed with her 'Golden Generation' and all.
Let me reiterate then. The best of the best, according to her tastes. To be fair though, majority of the PSD now are really good. Not the best, but they have a lot of potential. Maybe potential is the basis of her system?
If Megumi got in before Soma kicked her ass in gear anyone can. Chicken
Girl doesn't seem to be anything special either, otherwise Soma would have called her instead of Meat during the Karaage arc.
>Girl doesn't seem to be anything special either
Senazemon would think otherwise.
>otherwise Soma would have called her instead of Meat during the Karaage arc.
Except Souma wanted to hear the thoughts of an expert at meat. I'm pretty sure at that time, Megloomy was still pretty bad, but she gained a lot of skill during the tournament arcs. She's top 8, after all.
Why do I have this uneasy feeling that more girls will join the Soumab owl...
>she's not interested in him
I'm going to be sorely disappointed if neither of them believe that Saiba is Soma's dad, but it's probably what's going to happen.
I'm hoping that the Polar Star members at least verify it for Erina.
