新たなる『玉』

潤が葉山に駆け寄ると、葉山は思わず無言で潤を抱きしめる
衆人環視での出来事に、すぐさま葉山は平静を装うが吉野は見逃さなかった

一触即発の空気を抑えられない黒木場だが
そこはアリスの背中ポカポカで爆発、程よく気が抜けたか

葉山のカルパッチョをソーマ&黒木場が俺にも食わせろと詰め寄る
二人ともこれで終わりだなどと思ってなく、いつでも学年首位の座を奪う姿勢

エンドロールっぽく結果が流れる(2位・3位の区別なし)

城一郎からソーマに電話が
ソーマは葉山の皿から香りだけではなく、執念のようなものを感じていた
"ゆきひら"を出たことで、強敵と出会えた
自分の料理を探るという目標が、"ゆきひら"を継ぐ意味が生まれた

■大きな経験を得たソーマが次に目指すのは!?次号新章!!

After the last chapter, not much. Most people involved still have the same opinion of Souma that they had beforehand and his crowmning achievement, showing that a non-monster can beat out prodigies, was invalidated by curryfag winning for being able to cook something unltra special no one else could, with his superior gifts.

I don't understand the hate for the outcome of this arc. Hayama is a shitty character I will admit, but at least with Souma finally having his first big loss we are closer to receiving more Erina interaction. Now he has a reason to seek the power of the doki doki.
>>
>>120546146
We didn't need fifty chapters of build up to that loss is the point. That entire tournament was fucking worthless.
>>
>>120546167
That's true, but the outcome of the arc is the best we could of gotten given the circumstances.
>>
>>120546146
The issue is not the loss but the shitty way it was explained.
It wasn't even a matter of having a waifu,it basically tells you that if you don't have a superpower you and your hard work can just fuck off.
>>
>>120546146
It's not the outcome. Many are fine with Souma losing, he had it coming a long time anyway. Problem is how the author made Souma lose, as it shits on some themes and doesn't bode well for Souma's future development.
>>
Jesus Christ you guys are a bunch of fucking babies about "muh hard work lost to talent - so pointless" when Hayama worked hard too and actually gave thought to making something no one else can make. How do you expect Souma to grow as a character if he doesn't lose?
Plus where do you think seat competition is going to come from in his final year when all upperclassmen council members have left? Transfer students? Underclassmen?
>This jewels generation may have been the best in the history of Tootsuki. But these transfer students and the new generation just leave them in the dust!
For a school where only up to 5 people graduate and where this generation is super special, sure, let's make the current cast (except Souma and Erina) completely irrelevant. All of Souma's rivals in his final year will be new characters!
Who am I kidding, there WILL be a transfer student and there WILL be a prodigious underclassman (one will be a child of Doujima)
>>
>>120546146
For me problem with the outcome is that the arc leading up to it was pretty awful, and that arc is now half of the entire series. I was already sick of this tournament by around chapter 70 and now I'm not seeing what's holding me to continue reading. Actually this outcome probably sits better with me than a Kurokiba win.

Why does winning or losing matter? If it's supposed to go the way WSJ wants it to, this series will last for 3 high school years.

Now, fair enough if you don't agree with the last point.
The fame and recognition amongst the best chefs in the world come from the dishes that only they dared to imagine and create. Could others replicate their dishes? Sure. Heck, others could probably improve them in particular ways.
But whose face will come to mind when people eat these dishes?
From the dish, comes a style, and from there comes an identity. I believe this is what the writer was hinting.

>They both seem to think they were the one to deserve first place.

>There is only first place (Hayama), no distinction between 2nd and 3rd place.

>Souma receives a phone call from Jouichirou
>He says he felt both an aroma and a sense of tenacity from Hayama's dish (?)
>Having found a formidable enemy, a desire to find his own style of cooking and succeed "Yukihira" is born in Souma (?)
>>
>>120547877
It's a middle finger to hard work not because hayama didn't work hard,it is because the judges pretty much said that if you don't have a superpower you can just fuck off since you won't be ever be able to surpass people with talent.
Which is totally bullshit.
>The fame and recognition amongst the best chefs in the world come from the dishes that only they dared to imagine and create. Could others replicate their dishes? Sure. Heck, others could probably improve them in particular ways.But whose face will come to mind when people eat these dishes?
You're right.
Problem is that the judges said the exact opposite of that. Curry won because his dish couldn't be possibly replicated.

doesn't help that Souma don't have any interest in woman whatsoever except maybe Erina (just because teasing her is fun for him)
>>
>>120548020
I wouldn't say couldn't possibly be replicated - Souma probably has the autism to experiment without God's nose. But I see what you are saying.
>Judges pretty much said
Doujima did say that "[a specialty] you could say is a dish only that cook can create." But I don't think "having x superpower" is the whole picture.
It seemed to me that all three judges emphasised having a signature style as the most important thing. And something like that is obviously more attainable by the pleb students in the audience than a god's nose.

As an aside, imagine the following:
>Hayama challenges Erina
>Erina makes a scorched pacific saury carapaccio
>It is so good that it's no longer Hayama's specialty but Erina's
>>
>>120548564

The reason why Souma lost was BS.

Souma having a signature style will ruin his main aspect. He is supposed to have no style. Even that Apron guy say that Souma way of cooking is free-form and he doesn't stick to a specific style.That's what make Souma unique.

Shoehorning him into a specific style contradicts the author own theme.

Thats exactly the problem. If only judges said "Your dish is unique so it tastes better" it would be ok. But they said "It tastes the same, but your dish is unique, so you win".
Imagine you are playing an rpg and you found super rare unique named sword, that have same stats with sword, that you can buy from npc for 5 copper. Would you say "What an amazing sword!" or "What a piece of junk, are developers even serious?!"?

Yeah and they were all filled with fuck Curry fag and Fujoshits must die. Pretty sure people hated the fact that he lost to him twice.

If it's just about having a signature style,I'm fine with that.
Does it mean that Alice is already better than Souma as a cook then?

I suppose "style" is the wrong word, given that you couldn't call what Hayama did a "style".

Call it purpose? Identity? Signature?
Now that I think about it, Souma's signature becomes obvious
>One style, two style, ten styles is not enough. Infinite combinations and infinite possibilities. That's my cooking.
Heck, the writer showed his cards in the one shot.

Hayama is definitely the best character of this manga, it's rare for a character to be nice, hard-working and so hot. And unlike what people claim, he is not arrogant, it's just people who are jealous of his manliness
I hope the author will find a way to turn him into the main protagonist (or at least the 2nd main).
Something like, while Souma is training with his father, the story focuses on a love comedy between Hayama and Jun.

But here's the thing. In the finals, their cooking skills, choice of saury and dish flavor were virtually equal, hence the need for another criteria that separates the winner. (And apparently "uniqueness" > creativity)

I was spoilt on the ending and went into this expecting to be assmad but I was actually okay with it. A recognisable style or signature specialty is important in most kinds of arts, and I'm expecting future chapters to elaborate on what exactly Souma was missing. I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that his freestyle is unconsciously copying his dad's freestyle since people who know them both have continuously compared them to each other.

Honestly I was expecting some bullshit where both curry and lobster tried souma's dish and recognized their complete loss despite judges being niggers.
Kinda glad they didn't go the route.

There are a lot of reasons. The arc went on for too fucking long, we just had an incredibly good chapter about how Souma's hard work can beat natural talent, the reason why Souma lost isn't very good, Hayama's a prick who doesn't respect other people's cooking, the flashback chapter came out of no where to make readers feel sorry for Hayama, the plot hasn't moved forward at all...

I get where the manga is going. Souma has been chasing after his father for too long and never really developed his own style. That's something really interesting. It's just that the tournament was an opportunity to acknowledge how Souma's skills had developed up until that point and to set up new and more interesting challenges. If Souma had won the tournament and then lost to Erina because she has her own style and he doesn't, everything would have worked out the same, but the tournament wouldn't have felt like a complete waste of time. The manga could have been about Souma trying to break through the ceiling that separates the Elite 10 from the rest of the students. Now, Souma's circled back to being a pleb. The plot hasn't moved forward one inch in 50+ chapters.

Didn't the chapter contradict the previous one with how Souma has improved, made his own style since his dad didn't actually teach him jack shit and he only watched him and that was why the judging felt retarded?

Your reading comprehension failed. The entire point is that Souma was mostly self taught other than the basics of a special of the day restaurant, and that because of how he has no lid he's willing to try anything.

A kid who's willing to dabble in everything and make use of it doesn't have a style yet. He's still in the middle of playing around with everything he's learning.

Let's use a gaming analogy.

>Kurokiba mains a level 100 warrior cookie cutter stronk style with raid gear
>Hayama mains a level 100 rogue and he builds it differently from every other rogue and picks specialized raid gear and manages because he grabbed a really special item during a limited time event and only he has it
>Souma has a level 80 of every class and plays with multiboxing. Each of them have a bit of raid gear

So one is a cookie cutter, one is unique, the other is good at everything but has no specialties other than knowing every class well and how they interact with each other.

Which is more memorable? Impressionable? Immediately recognizable? 99% of the time, it's the unique guy. That doesn't mean the unique guy is better mind you, but it makes him stick out.

It's really as simple as that. You might hate it since it's such a minor thing, but when it comes to marketing yourself which is half the reason why one would enroll at Tootsuki, that little bit can't just be ignored when everything else is equal.

How does that work with my analogy? It's simple. Unless you're talking about e-sports the value of a character leans more towards their gear than the player's skills, which can change over time or depreciate in value as other players get better and learn to copy.

TL;DR Hayama is Kirito and has dual-wielding, no one else does. He's not the best PvPer or PvEr, but he has dual-wielding so he's the MC.

>>120554550
It's basically a shoe-in at this point. Erina might appear arrogant and constantly caught off guard by surprises, but ironically it's mostly because she's so damn sharp she immediately realizes what's going on faster than anybody. That tells you quite a bit about how familiar she is with the fundamentals which even characters like Alice and Hayama take time to figure out.

And she does it all far away most of the time too in that private room upstairs.

Different anon, point was he needed to lose sometime to show his stupid pattern needs to stop and he needs to develop.
>>
>>120554717
You sure you aren't samefag? Your English just as redundant and vague as the other guy.

How about you point out how losing to Erina develops Souma over losing to Hayama? Here's a hint, stop using the word develop and give actual examples. You should have learned this in grade school. Show, don't tell.
>>
I'm swear if Erina started being dere to Souma and this manga become harem I will drop this shit.
>>
>>120554283
>Souma has a level 80 of every class and plays with multiboxing. Each of them have a bit of raid gear
That makes no sense, level 80 will never beat a level 100 and Souma matches them. You can say Souma is level 100 druid with raid gear, that would make more sense.
>>
>>120554283
>manages because he grabbed a really special item during a limited time event and only he has it

Im not sure that kind of "Immediately recognizable" is good thing.
>>

Not that anon, but Souma winning the tournament would make the 50 chapters worth it because now he can challenge Erina. Losing to Hayama sets him two steps back, which is where he was before the tournament started.

The judges went full retarded this arc in order for Hayama to win, no explaining will ever change that.

>>120548564
>It seemed to me that all three judges emphasised having a signature style as the most important thing
But if all you have to bring to the table is hard work, then no matter what style you go for then anybody can replicate your efforts by putting in as much hard work. An inborn superpower like god nose or god taste is the only thing that cannot be replicated. Hence only those born with superpowers could ever hope to develop non-imitable signatures.

reality: Yes. Hayama did nothing original and copy guy could have done his dish exactly, only one step further

bullshit answer of manga: no. he had no spice cake love to make his dish "special".

How was Hayama's dish so unique? All he did was add allspice and blowtorch his name on it.

He had a qt girlfriend. That's literally why. Going against everything they built up for 100 chapters and actually explained for 16 pages in 102.

Fuck author for not at least trying to make Hayama's dish seem to have something unique or original, especially after kurokiba and soma both did actually original things they hadn't tried before.

Anyway, Soma just has to hold hands with Erina and he will become a cooking god apparently. look forward to it.
>>
>>120555720
>>120556004
>>120555610
I feel like this would have actually worked if Soma was doing it for Erina.

Erina has very specific tastes, she comes from the complete opposite school of cooking as Soma. So Soma "making something for his girl" would actually require him to be original and different, since Erina will never admit to liking his usual stuff.

But for Jun and Hayama? She already likes the exact same shit as what he cooks. She's all about spices and aromas. What did he have to do to make his dish especially for her?

You are deluding yourself, it wasn't because of his fujoshit self insert slut. Nowhere in the chapter does it say that.

Well you could say that Souma is second with one win more than Kurokiba since he tied with Hayama in semis.

Full spoilers (1/2).

104 New "Jewel"

We begin with Akira's victory pose, Souma and Ryou bitter, and the audience in awe only to burst in cheers a few seconds later.

Jun congratulates Akira while crying and starts complaining at him for brushing it away cooly...Only to be embraced by him a few seconds later.
Everyone's in shock for the hug, and when Akira notices what he did he stops.
Yuuki watches that with some interested/teasing eyes.

We get a small flashback to why Akira had the cinammon at the beginning of the election (Jun gave it to him).

Gin understands the true reasons for Akira's expression after the semifinals and starts worrying about something.

Ryou is so pissed of no one dares get close to him.
Alice comes in and starts hitting his back in anger(more like pouting) at him losing
Ryou snaps at her, and Alice tells him they're breaking off their relationship until Ryou apologizes.

Gin congratulates Akira and tells him to be careful as a talent to big can bear its fangs at its owner.

Souma and Ryou kinda force Akira to make some carpaccio for them too.
They eat it and have a small somewhat friendly/rival-ish talk.
Gin even says they're going to become quite an interesting trio.
Leonora says that's alligned with Tootsuki's ideals (while comforting Alice)
>>
2/2

Senzaemon says a new jewel was born that day.

The award ceremony begins.

The polar star gang (+Ikumi) is going to party but Souma gets a call from Jouichirou
Jouichirou makes fun of Souma losing after Souma hesitates to tell him the results.
Souma tells him he didn't lost only due to Akira's skill but because there was some kind of tenacity on Akira's dish.
He also talks about how he's glad he went away from Yukihira because that let him notice many things and that what he's going to do know is find his own unique cooking because if he doesn't it wouldn't make sense for Souma to succeed Yukihira.
Jouichirou tells him that's just fine and finishes the call.

We then get a monologue from Jouichirou.
He's glad one of Souma's peers finally blew off what Souma was until then.
He also talks about how meetings are the only way a cook can move forward.
He then says that facing the dish alone will only reflect your same unchanging self.
This last phrase is on top of a page where we can see Erina looking at Souma, Megumi, and Ikumi from the window.

The End, we get a new arc next week.

Why does everyone think that Souma will reach Erina sooner than the second to last boss (last being dad)?

If she becomes dere/fights with Souma/starts interacting a lot with Souma earlier, she loses her position as a long-term goal for Souma.

Having Hayama be higher than Souma at this point only makes Erina that much more powerful a rival for Souma and she's clearly second-to-last boss tier.

>>120564066

Because she won't get development otherwise, the manga is already moving at a snails pace some people want more than 10 chapters to decide a fucking winner. And she is not second last boss, she is pretty fucking bottom tier there's 9 other people above her.

>>120564015

New "ball"

When Jun runs up to Hayama, Hayama hugs Jun silently unconsciously.
Hayama served calm in an affair by public attention immediately, but Yoshino didn't overlook.

Kurokiba which can't suppress touch-and-go air.
A back of Alice was warmth there, and did you explode and lose interest moderately?

"Souma&Kurokiba make me eat carpaccio in Hayama, too.", I press.
The posture by which both of two people don't think such as that's it and take the place by the grade top away anytime

A result looks like the end roll and is called off (without distinctions of 2nd place and 3rd place).

It's the telephone in Souma from Jouichirou.
Souma felt something like an obsession as well as a fragrance from a dish of Hayama.
" You could meet a powerful enemy by having gone out of the Yukihira".
The meaning that the target I sound about my dish sets "Yukihira" was born.

■ That Souma which had a big experience aims in the next? Next issue Akira Nii !!
>>
>>120546146
>but at least with Souma finally having his first big loss we are closer to receiving more Erina interaction
apparently you've never read this manga and don't know who erina is. Erina looks down on losers. She's got a massive superiority complex. thanks to this loss she won't be relevant in this plot for another 100+ chapters.

she's a tease. she'll never be relevant in this manga, excepting as a foil. she's not a romantic interest nor is she even a direct competitor. she's just a superbitch who's in love with souma's father's cooking.

I feel like Erina was made to be a hated tsundere type of character. It's a shame that I don't feel that way about the kid though.

When I see her I typically react like this; "Meh, this girl again..." I blitz through her dialogue since I just don't have the energy to bother much with her and her shenanigans.
>>
>>120567634
I would say she definitely knows better since she's a young adult and not a child. She comes off as bitter of the high expectations placed upon her and she lashes out at "normal" people who are living the life she wish she had and that's me giving her a lot of credit since she's the main heroine and her just being an elitist bitch would be too shallow.

She won't be redeemed to me until she saves Souma from expulsion to make up failing him due her bullshit. I don't have high hopes though from this manga and am expecting her behavior to be justified with a sob story and all her faults swept under the rug once she goes dere.

He said that a dish that looks normal and that taste great has much more impact than a dish that has appearance since you would know it will taste great.
>>
So Erina wants Souma's dish
>>
>>120570122
That's nice. How does that relate to the finals where the judges decided all 3 dishes had equal impact in taste?
>>
>>120570271
He said that even though identity is nice and all that in one taste you can identify the chef, it would make the dish stale since you wouldn't have the curiosity of finding out the one who did these and that a dish like souma were cooked as dish to win, it would leave more impact to the tongue and would leave more identity than a dish Hayama did

i also got him interested, in reading this manga,which was a surprise. its funny how he agreed that Souma should have won since his dish looks more interesting and had appeal
>>
>>120570627
How will he react to the lewd?
>>
>>120570627
The context of what you posted makes no sense. It's not like they don't know who made Souma or Kurokiba's dish. This isn't a match judged with blindfolds. It's an actual match.

I too think Souma should have won, but only based on Hayama's dish being super lack luster and eaten that type of dish many times.
>>
>>120570627
Anon... did you forget about the part where this manga is drawn by a (former ;_;)) h-manga artist, and that there's entire pages dedicated to female characters doing lewd poses?

The irony of this entire tournament is something that Ishiki made clear off one or two chapters ago.

Where he basically called out glasses faggot, but made it more open to everyone in the audience; that the tournament itself was a complete sham. That Souma HAS a style, but his style is simply taking any kind of ingredient and delivering borderfuckingline elite seat tier food with it.

Everything was basically rigged from the start into railroading chefs into specific paths. But Ishiki wanted it to go further, and he probably expected Souma to win on the basis of his merit and not on the basis of some shitty ideal.

And in retrospect, I think THAT IS WHY Ishiki stays at the Polar Star dorm. While everyone there is working towards a specialty, their growth isn't some railroaded journey. It's collaborative, they grow together--they learn from each other and rely on each other to succeed. Everyone DOES have a style, and it's perfectly valid to call someone who can take any kind of ingredient and make it into delicious and respectable food, as having a style.

It's not a bombastic style, it's not something you can put on a fucking card or make a marketing buzzword out off, but it is nonetheless a special kind of talent that MOST chefs don't have--and trying to railroad this kind of talent is stupid.

Which is WHY, the conclusion to this tournament is fucking bullshit.
>>
>>120571380
You're giving the author too much credit. At almost no point does anyone in the Polar Star Dorm save Souma and to a lesser extent, Megumi, utilize techniques they learned from others. And Megumi basically only used Souma's teachings to calm herself down and boost her confidence.

I get what you're trying to play at, but it hasn't happened so far.

Ironically it's Nikumi who took a lesson to heart out of everyone regarding versatility of food, but even then she's so far behind she's basically just gotten off the starting line in anything but meat.

In Tootsuki, 1st is king, 2nd and below is nothing really to brag about. Those are some extremely high standards at this school It's amazing they even have graduates at all. Then again, I assume most of those are money pits with maybe a select few who got there thanks to their unique special abilities. That's how shonen works after. You need to be special to matter.
>>
>>120571698
>you can count the number of graduates every year on one hand

This was covered in the early chapters. Not even being in the elite 10 guarantees your graduation. It only lets you be a contender to graduate.

He's good in Shigatsu as well but I wonder if he's got enough spaghetti to play Takumi.

The best outcome would be Souma going 'nah, you guys are full of bullshit. My 'style' is what I'm already doing as I can and I don't need to pigeonhole myself'

But it's never gonna happen.
>>

I bet you like the fact we went through more than half of the series without any sense of validation.

If anything now would be the time to pick it up again now this arc is over.

Highly tempted, but I want to give the team the benefit of the doubt. This is classic Jump editor bullshit, and they went with it as badly as they could.

I don't even care that Souma lost, I just wish he lost in a way that felt natural. Nobody wants a flashback before something "unpredictable" happens.

And at least give him some sort of recognition after dedicating an entire chapter to his hard work. Even a simple line like "you have potential" would be great.

She has never been able to ignore him when he's around. Part of it is his own fault, but she has made note of his cooking and ideas in these matches.

ErinaxSoma development, yeah right.
>>
>>120582428
So what is she saying?

>>120582707
She's impressed that Soma actually made it that far, and is trying to understand why Soma isn't devastated by losing. She might consider enlisting Soma as her temporary sous chef now that Hinako has disappeared.

No offense but this seems like an even bigger asspull than currynigger actually winning the tournament. It's like the author thinks he can pander to fujoshits and the original audience at the same time. I don't appreciate him pulling this shit after what happened last chapter, even if I'm an Erinafag.
>>
So how long until Hayama jobs hard to the next antagonist in order for Souma to progress?

And we are back to the usual status quo.
Erina being Erina with her high-horsed attitude.
Souma going back to find his " cooking styles ".

Zero progression from plot.
60 chapters wasted from this tournament arc.

Still will see the next arc before deciding to drop from this. Fking hope there is no more fillers.

This will be the next bleach. 500 chapters and no plot progression.

It's unclear who the subject is; she may be either referring to herself or Souma.

Man, all I want is more Erina. She is critically underused and has had very little interaction with the other cast.

Thats just a flawed argument. Whether you pay for it or not doesn't change the quality of the product. You can argue that they don't deserve to complain but they have every right to state their opinion about it.

Mario brothers are way better rivals, they even have a lesser one for Megumi.

Not to mention the blonde one is actually pushed as fujobait.
>>
>>120587957
I'm seeing this everywhere, but where the fuck is the poll that showed Akira being popular?

There was no such poll and the most popular m/m pairing is Souma/Italy. If the author wanted to pander, he'd have Italy win this and be Souma's rival.

You guys are believing your own conspiracy theories. If anything, this stinks of an editor's decision in order to drag the pace.

So, any guess on what his cooking gimmick is gonna be?

I dont see why he as such a problem. Everyone else seems to be a mostly one trick pony, obviously the other two had a huge advantage for this challenge as well. Despite that he competed at the same level. It may not be his speciality but the very fact that it isn't is reason enough for him to be the victor.

>Gin congratulates Akira and tells him to be careful as a talent to big can bear its fangs at its owner.
Curryfag confirmed for never being able to handle his own restaurant. His sous-chefs will never be able to compete with God Nose and his restaurant will plummet down because he can only serve that many dishes at once.
