There's a really good chance the E10 switch was planned for a while and it's probably a big part of why Erina got so much focus in the last 7-8 chapters.

my guess is after some point, Souma or his Dad completely breaks Azami and he runs away, eventually coming back a reformed man and making amends with his daughter.

Then a new challenge/adversary is introduced in the 2nd or 3rd year.

At least, that's what I hope.

It could probably spiral for another year even if it didn't have a popular anime adaptation. I do think that adaptation won't last unless things start getting better fast.

>>145211825
If it does get better quick, there are a lot of clever adaptation tricks they could do that would make the anime far superior to the source material for this arc, but you do really need that "it gets better, trust us" hook.
>>
>>145210642
Hang on a sec. Erina is 100% Japanese right? So a fake blonde.
>>
>>145211409
Sket Dance was also a gag manga and was never at the top of the ranks. Gag series have a lot more repetitive value than most genres unless you are up against the likes of Detective Conan.

Given how the Elite 10 sided with Central and the battles are already beginning, there's nothing to really write on for 2nd/3rd year. You might try using common sense but that doesn't work with the manga industry. They for whatever reason, deemed that a shonen series about a kid who climbs to the top in 1st year, will not be interesting if he has to defend his position in the 2nd/3rd year. It's always gotta be a underdog thing. There can only be progression, there can never be maintaining the status quo. That's shonen 101.

By the time Souma finishes off Azami, even if there are E10 still left, it won't be enough to take a whole year or two. This is especially true given how the only 2nd year with any remote threatening presence is chicken man and he already lost while Kuga is a non factor. All the big shots are among the 3rd years.

>>145211543
It's not about whether or not it can be milked, cause Tosh alone makes it milkable. There's a thousand ways to milk it if you're willing to take risks with the story direction like having Souma turn into the 'bad guy' through his tyrannical experimental dishes in the second year and basically have it be really lighthearted with the new 1st years rebelling against Souma's ridiculous whims on the E10 council.

But that would NEVER happen.

>>145212101
We don't know who her mother is.
>>
>>145212438

You're talking about a series where we have Japanese with

>Red
>Purple
>Blonde
>Orange

And possibly more. I don't think you should start giving a shit about hair color realism.
>>
>>145212339

Underdogs are inherently the more common and popular thing, it's a theme that resonates with people.

They did kind of blow their load on Azami and there's really no turning back there at this point, it'd be a huge de-escalation and it'd feel like the weirdest intermission in the world just ended.

The series probably wasn't one that could've run through all 3 years anyways, though, unless the 3rd year was a fair bit shorter or less battle focused and more on character interaction (because at that point most of the battles would be retreads of first year). The third years in the current arc are scary and all, but wait 4 months and it's oh hey they're gone I guess things just got much easier.

Did an editor demand Azami's existence or something?

Of all the possible endings, none of them work in the first year. You pretty much have to make it to end of year 2 before you can even do an ending where he leaves the school with Erina like his dad.

That's also probably the only ending that would work in Year 2, unless you just do a fast forward to show what happened after graduating.

No matter what, something has to happen for a 2nd year, and I have no idea what.

>>145212645
>Underdogs are inherently the more common and popular thing, it's a theme that resonates with people.

I don't deny that, I'm just explaining how as a magazine marketed towards kids, it's very hard for WSJ to maintain a series about a character who beats down others. Even for maintaining status quo, which WSJ series do you know has a rival of the MC that stays an equal rival or weaker (so no fucking Sasuke who is always conveniently more powerful besides a handful of times) that ends up not being fodder? It's like saying Takumi Aldini will graduate as the #1 of Souma's grade or even be Souma's final opponent in the battle over the first seat in 3rd year.

It's just impossible.

I don't know who's idea was for Azami.

>>145212669
Just enjoy the art.

>>145212874
The epilogue might have them time skip to 2nd or 3rd year sure, but the main meat of it will be 1st year and anything in the 2nd/3rd will basically be an afterthought. Beating Azami in 1st year means they are the top of the ladder, there's nothing interesting to go on during second year.

Just look at shitty Bleach if you need a quick reminder.

Right, I had to read again the last page. Didn't Soma even struggle against ChineseYugi? I remember that glasses accountant dude lost against Soma but how will the others go up against the Elite 10 unless all of the jobbed.

I can't remember their names.

Either make the tests non-standard, or have the best people win against some of the weaker E10 in 1v1 while the weakers get bailed out (and one actually does die for real)

She is going to bake their cake, catch the bouquet, help deliver their firstborn, and babysit their children as the nanny. She can also be a surrogate mother so Erina doesn't have to ruin her hot body. Erina doesn't have time for pregnancy leave anyway considering what her future will be inheriting the Nakiri name.

That is the fate of Tadakoro Megumi.

Soma struggled against him using his own specialty and putting himself at a massive disadvantage.

>>145214780
I think it won't be 1v1 though. The rebels are simply outnumbered the E10. So I guess it'll be 1 E10 vs few rebels for example Rindou vs souma takumi megumi erina
>>
>>145215025
Only one group needs to win, because if you beat the end boss, everyone who died can just be brought back.
>>
>>145215084

I can agree with that for some of them but 100% I think someone's getting put up against Erina solo here

There's no way Azami would ever put his daughter in a position where she could risk expulsion

Humiliate him in a way that makes him lose all support, I'd recommend having Soma seduce him while they're being recorded.

>>145215358

Souma impregnates Erina and Azami dies at the thought of a Saiba/Nakiri super child.

How do people not see how this ends? This is the same shit as every shounen. Azami will be "healed" in some way and then he'll back off and be a normal headmaster, and something else will happen during their 2nd years.

Orichimaru is an even worse example desu. Many of his followers, like the Sound 4 (who were literally a bunch of 13-15 year olds who were manipulated and enslaved by him), were punished and killed off while Orichimaru is redeemed, gets to continue his experiments, gets most of what he wants, and is even chummy with Naruto at the end.
>>
>>145216593
Apparently Tayuya and co were pure evil while Snakepedo has a fruedian excuse, or that's what I heard from narutards when the manga ended.

In any case, I don't think Azami will get redeemed. Erina will stand up to him, he'll be humiliated, forced to admit he was wrong, and run out.

Not that he's not beating off furiously to the very thought now that he knows it's possible though

"All of you, get the fuck out of my school and you, come by my house later to fuck my daughter"
>>
>>145216766
I think we'll eventually delve into what went wrong with Azami. I think Gin's warning to Hayama after the election was related to Azami for one.

I think at some point, besides learning about Erina's mom, Azami will indeed be forced to face up to the fact that his actions cost him his daughter. And that he'll have lost over a decade of her life that he could have spent with his child over his obsession.
>>
I bet Hayama took Isshiki or Kuga's spot and is on the train with the other rebels. Hishoko rematch.
>>
>>145217896

He's doing a real fucking bad job making himself out to be open to any kind of reconciliation

She'll probably be a small fairy again when she joins him via either the brainwashing, coercion, or of her own will because some bad shit went down

That hook got planted right after Azami left Polar Star and it's just a matter of time before it comes roaring back
>>
>>145220233
>coercion
I just have a feeling that Azami will threaten to expel all of them unless Erina comes back to Central, and it will be lame.
>>
>>145220233
Of course she'll probably willingly go back to him in a possible attempt to prevent the rebels from being expelled, and then the heroes will go off to the final battle and rescue their goddess from the demon lord.
>>
>>145220294
He'll be forced to make that threat only when he realizes he's lost Erina for good and she won't come back from him just ordering her to.
>>
So let me get this straight
They're fighting the E10
Not just the lower E10
But fucking #2?
The only way I can see out of this is that they're not literally going to Shokugeki them, or that Rindou is going to laugh her ass off,, say 'this isn't fun' and straight up quit.
>>
>>145220317

That or he'll isolate her from the Polar Stars using her E10 status and convince her that she needs to stay away from all of them

>>145220294

That's a possibility and it'd be really really boring, yeah. Especially since it'd essentially shut out a Shokugeki between her and Soma unless Azami decided now was a great time to brainwash his daughter through psychological torture some more
>>
>>145220294
>I just have a feeling that Azami will threaten to expel all of them
I asked Tsukuda on Twitter why Azami hadn't done this already and he ignored it. It's not like he hasn't been on Twitter either, he's retweeting and chatting with people regularly. Either he's working to fix it or the editor forbade him from tweeting important details.
>>
>>145220420
>That or he'll isolate her from the Polar Stars using her E10 status and convince her that she needs to stay away from all of them
She wouldn't obey that in her current state of mind, not unless we get some good old fashioned mind break.
>>
>>145220428
>I asked Tsukuda on Twitter why Azami hadn't done this already
Probably because he still wants to expel them instead of making a deal when he's under the impression that Erina would go back to him should her order her to.
>>
>>145220511

I think he'll force her to go up against Megumi or Soma as part of the E10 right now by threatening to just expel them for collusion with a proctor otherwise, she'll absolutely crush them and even though something will come up that'll save them, she'll go into shock from almost getting a friend expelled, realize her rank ties her to him and there's no chance he'll let that go, and try to put some distance between herself and the group.
>>
>>145220653
Can't she just resign from E10?
>>
Isshiki, Megishima and Kuga to the rescue.
>>
>>145220565

>>145220511

Even though on the surface everything is good with her mental state, there's probably a shitload of leftover programming and he'll exploit the shit out of that when the time comes.

Yeah but it wasn't a job interview
The deal was literally "cook to satisfy and you're in", this wasn't something like a real Tootsuki test where attitude towards 'customers' could probably be a criteria (even if your food is good nobody comes to be smirked and yelled at).

To be fair, that was Erina's doing. There's a genuine entrance exam, and she was supposed to give it to Souma, but she decided that way was faster.

I'm not actually sure how Souma would have done on the actual exam given some of the gaps we've seen in his knowledge.
>>
>>145222493
Was the exam paper-based though? I was under the impression it was going to be cooking-based anyway.
>>
>>145222112
>It's wrong, but it's not unexpected.
Well desu not necessarily, a job interview is often scouting your personality, thinking if you'll be able to work with the group, etc.
It's not purely seeing if you're qualified since your resume / CV / whatever is supposed to be the collection of your qualifications.
>>
>>145222520
Hisako said the first step is an interview, and the second a practical test with 3 different dishes, and then Erina cut her off when she was saying what those who passed that had to do. I don't doubt there was a written section too.
>>
>>145222645
Probably saved Souma's ass
>>
>>145221724

>Erina is a bitch because she failed Souma

You're about a year late. If this was last year you'd have 20 other Megumifags spamming that to stir up waifuwars, but now it's just you.
>>
>>145222702
I dislike Megumi and I'm not trying to stir shit up.
I'm saying that Erina wasn't ALWAYS likeable, in fact she was purposely presented as an asshole by the story in the beginning.
>>
>>145222645
>the first step is an interview

>Chapelle: so it says here on your resume that you like to make "experimental dishes". Care to explain?
>Souma: yeah dawg I make squid tentacles covered in peanut butter
>Chapelle: GET OUT
Yup
>>
>>145222767
Chapelle seems to me like he prefers a holistic approach, so once he samples the practical dishes he might think that the 'experimental' dishes aren't a sign that Souma is shit at cooking but rather got to this level just by trying random shit, which says something about him
He doesn't seem like he immediately jumps to conclusions, he's just strict about the rules he's laid out clearly.
>>
>>145222664
Quite possibly. Though of course, we know that Senzaemon wanted him to get in.

Senzaemon is a hard ass though, and if Souma couldn't cook he wouldn't let him in anyway, but since he can, and he wanted him in, he probably would have found a way to get him in regardless of written tests just like how he overrode Erina's judgement.
>>
>>145223431
I don't think Senzaemon particularly 'wanted' him in so much as both knew he was Jouichirou's kid and thought his cooking was so impressive that he kept an eye on the plucky fellow
>>
>>145224105
Are you not caught up with the manga?

Jou didn't want to send Souma at all. Senzaemon specifically requested that he send Souma to Tootsuki. Senzaemon specifically wanted Souma to attend for Erina's sake.

>>145224409

I'm just catching up with the manga. But I'm gonna say this over and over again. Why is Alice so best girl? Shit, it's unfair for all the other ones. Has personality, attitude, charisma, looks and it's not in the Soumabowl. Fucking perfect.
>>
>>145225083
>not in the soumabowl
Good!
>>
>>145225083
Alice is a perfectly acceptable choice.

The Soumabowl is a sham since the winner was determined all the way back in the first chapter, so competing in it is a negative point for a girl.

I stopped reading Souma because of him, I'm catching up right now to see if it improved. But is as this anon said >>145225241 He's poorly done, lacks charisma, and when he's around lacks impact. Look at villains like Aizen, you can argue that Bleach is a clusterfuck, but everytime he's around it's so fun to see what's he gonna do. With the edgelord, he just spergs muh perfect cuisine.
>>
>>145225608
>He's poorly done, lacks charisma, and when he's around lacks impact
This
He's a villain with a plan that's poorly thought out
He doesn't have truly overwhelming power like Madara or Aizen
He's not incredibly charismatic like some of the Kingdom villains nor does he feel like he's always in control of the situation like the MC from Dungeon Defense
He's just an ass.
>>
>>145225728
>He's a villain with a plan that's poorly thought out

Fucking this, his plan looks something like a shitty villain has thought. "Stop eating what I don't like", what now faggot you are gonna close every restaurant, factory that makes food you don't like? Good luck fighting against capitalism.
>He's just an ass.
He has stopped the progression the manga had, we should be at a point where things like what is the gourmet world outside the academy than just staying there and battling for surviving. Fucking Edgelord.

You can fight against capitalism, it's just that

I didn't say she was always shit but she was pretty horrid until AFTER camp arc, the whole reveal with Jouichirou being HIM was when she began to get better.
The only thing that was 'cute' about her in the camp arc was the singing on the way to the bath and the way she immediately becomes insufferable to gloat at him isn't endearing, it doesn't matter if the target was Souma or Takumi or whoever.
>>
>>145232518

Is someone like Rindou not cute and insufferable also because she's aligning herself with an autistic villain and trying to get the main cast expelled?
>>
>>145232518
Did she ever mock Takumi? I thought it was a thing that Soma brought out her absolute worst and everyone else she was just cold to
>>
>>145232772

Rindou is also really really positive and friendly, which Erina wasn't bar Hisako and Megumi until Azami showed up
>>
>>145232772
I don't find her insufferable because DUDE LMAO WHY NOT is one of my favorite character types male or female. Could see why others disagree though.

>>145232788
Pretty much, she was icy to everyone but an ass to Souma
I don't know if it was because he was a 'peasant', because he was actually good at cooking, or because she was wrong for once in her life about food (she bashed his dish before trying it which is usually a stupid thing to do but she thought she'd basically seen everything at that point so there was no need to even give him a chance) or a combo of all three, but shes basically only an ass to Souma. She's actually nice to Megumin later during the tournament and wonders why she'd never heard her name.

The only explanation would be that Aizen is trying to make the rebels stronger and he was fucking with them the whole time. That is literally the only thing that would make the most sense as to why Aizen doesn't just expel the rebels or tell them to fail them without question.

The thing about this manga is, we don't need a villain. This manga was perfectly fine not having any form of villain, but challenges to overcome and a show of the character's skills.

Now with this villain it just looks fucking stupid. Surviving through the school's challenges already put in place was enough. Having cooking battles and chefs displaying their skill in cooking was enough. Having a big bad for no reason other than reasons is just shit.
>>
>>145241195
That's the thing though
If he was at LEAST well done, it'd be acceptable. He's not. He's retarded.
>>
>>145241269
Another problem is that Soma is becoming John Cena. He's still pushed as the underdog despite him beating a fucking Elite 10 member.

This manga would be so much better if it were what it was originally; people battling each other to simply get better/weed out shitty cooks. They can still have Soma and the crew going through challenges, but them having to go through these stupid set of biased challenges is just no fun. Especially when the win due to absolute bullshit with no explanation.
>>
>>145241458
and his name is
>>
>>145241458
It would be nice if he lost and actually had to face consequences.
>>
>>145242281
It kinda is shit when whenever Soma loses, it's just 'oh well, I lost, time to learn and get better!' But then there's hardly any consequences for anyone he's beaten. Gigga Nigga just gave up a bunch of knives and learned and became good. Nikumi became tsundere and went to the Don RS, which isn't really a big deal. Everyone he beat in the Autumn election simply lost and moved on. And Eizan just lost and didn't destroy a building.
>>
>>145225216
If i am not mistaken, didn't Tsukuda and Tosh got an new editor around Azami debut? Also, Erina was still a smug bitch during that time. So they had to introduce him to justify Erina attitude and at the same time open up a new plot (Rebels vs Central). Albeit it is shitty as fuck now, since there is no tension and stake now.
>>
>>145210557
Its not your fault Tsukada is a hack writer.
>>
>>145242614

There's definitely a stake in that if they lose they all get expelled and Erina winds up Bad Dad's taste tester puppet for the rest of her life, but they've done a horrible job with the tension, yeah

I would legitimately love to hear how the fuck Azami came into existence as something that should've happened in this manga though
>>
Can this manga be saved at this point? Will it just die a slow death?
>>
>>145238773
Anon, she ran the second most successful restaurant at the moon festival.

You need to come to terms with reality.
>>
>>145242614
The new editor joined after Erina ran to the PSD.

And even during the moon festival we had Erina rooting for Souma to beat Kuga without even realizing she was doing it.
>>
>>145210607
>>145210484
I don't see how this will happen. We have the existing E10 made up of third or 2nd years, but then we are introduced to almost-E10s already. So who the fuck can they add outside of HOW IS THIS FIRST YEAR SO STRONG?! without pulling a new 2nd or 3rd year out of their ass?
>>
>>145230749
Even though it's a stream, thanks for this anon. It's nice to see the OVA subbed.
>>
>>145245876

When was she rooting for Soma? She tasted a dish because Hisako kinda put Soma's foot in the foot for it but I don't remember anything beyond that
>>
>>145246074
It's simple

Transfer students
>>
>>145246161
During the Souma v Yugi,she wanted Souma to win.
>>
>>145246181
It would be pretty fucking dumb if a transfer student from a lower school just ends up being top tier at THE school everyone goes to. Unless they continue the legacy stuff and his/her parents are already introduced but for some reason aren't at Tootsuki

Azami's in charge of the departure times for the train most likely, yeah?

It'd be too coincidental to have Souma and Erina on the same train after she was deliberately separated the last two times otherwise.

Probably.

He is just a shipper trying to make all his otps canon. We are being to hard with him.
>>
>>145252463
I don't think we've been given any indication that Azami has selected the replacements yet.
>>
>>145256324

"Congratulations, Yukihira Souma, you've been selected to fill the vacancy in the rank 8 seat. Now, it is still E10s vs. the first years, so you've been selected to face my daughter. Loser is expelled, of course, not that she'd possibly lose."
>>
>>145256422
>Erina throws and lets him win
>Azami pulls some bullshit so she doesn't get expelled
I can see it. No idea how what excuse could possibly let the others survive though.
>>
>>145256422
Did you have a mental breakdown while writing this? Why would he face the first years as an E10 when Erina isn't
>>
>>145256422
If, for whatever reason, Soma was to be in the E10, then it would make no sense to have him go agains Erina. It would be better for him to go against the rebels; that way he could lose and have everyone he's going to go agains win, thus not having to be expelled. Or he could win and be the one to have his friends be expelled.
>>
>>145256610

What makes you think she's not going to face them right now? Azami's not going to put his daughter in a position where she's going to get expelled and all signs point to him really wanting to get rid of Souma, who she's currently sharing a train car with.

>>145256496

Azami could just threaten to expel Souma for collusion if she didn't go at her best, there's the possibility she can't or won't hold back, or the brainwashing plot device comes roaring back right then.
>>
>>145257141

Azami would be doing it to fuck with him before getting him expelled in a match with Erina.

It's pretty unlikely, he'd have to know that's the kind of thing Souma cares about to know it's a dick move and all he really knows about him is he's fairly good, and he hangs around Azami's daughter because Jouichiro and Senzaemon.

It'd be amazingly dickish though.
>>
>>145257142
Re-read these last chapters, there's a page in which she says she's still a first year so she has to pass the exam nontheless even if she's part of the E10
>>
>>145257445

Any idea which chapter it was? I'm skimming around and not seeing it so far, was it before they left for Hokkaido?
>>
>>145257445
Yeah, Erina didn't take part in the elections since their purpose is basically to sort out the likeliest first years to become part of the E10 come second year. Since she's already part of the E10, it's pointless and instead she served as one of the organizers of the election.

She still took part in the Hell Camp, in Stagiaire, and even for the Leaf Viewing she sat on the side of the first years and not the E10 side. The moon festival was for all grades, and granted Erina was in the zone that was basically just 3rd years + the E10 second years, but that's more about her skill and savvy than her position.
>>
>>145257445
>>145258101

Azami's made it pretty clear he's not abiding by the old rules, and even if she sat out the one stage of the exam as a proctor there'd be 4 others (or he could just lie and say she passed this one with ease)

Does Erina ever do anything but blush?

Like seriously has she been in any shougukeis in like the last 50 chapters?
>>
>>145258321
>Does Erina ever do anything but blush?
Teach?

The only Shokugeki we've seen her do was against that sumo dude in Chapter 4-ish. In fact that's probably the only 1-on-1 Erina has done in this manga.
>>
>>145258321

She's literally about to be in some kind of fight now anon, relax
>>
>>145258321
Wolverine vs Eizan.
Souma vs Eizan.
Ryou vs Rentarou.

offscreen
Meat vs Mea
Megumi vs Kumai

Counting the offscreen ones, which is a questionable idea, I think those are all the shokugeki in the last 50 ch.

Oh, I guess there's also Souma vs Eishi (unofficial)
>>
>>145258321
>Does Erina ever do anything but blush?
She rallied the PSD and taught them about the various ingredients in the Hokkaido region. Ultimately, they passed thanks to her.
>>
>>145258500
Gotcha, a useless support character. She'll be good for sucking off MC-kun after he does stuff that's actually important
>>
I find it hard to believe that PSD is the only rebel group. Surely there are second years and a couple of non-Elite third years that disagree with Central's methods? Even if their clubs got dismantled there has to be a few people resisting the regime
>>
>>145258540
(You)
>>
>>145258557
I'm pretty sure that the other members of the Don RS and Megumi's Local Cuisine RS count. And there are second years in those groups.
>>
>>145258557
They resisted already and lost. The election group, PSD, and dissenting E10 are the only people who have had any success at resisting.
>>
>>145258700
>a bunch of first years could resist what second and third years couldn't, barring those exceptions
Embarrassing
>>
>>145258834
Muh Jewels Generation.
>>
>>145258834
How many 2nd and 3rd years are there even? The ones that are left should be pretty good, but there can't be many.
>>
>>145258834

The first year group this time is really really stacked and that's been a plot point since the Autumn Elections

Most of the really good 2nd and 3rd years are probably in the E10 anyways so they don't really give a shit.
>>
>>145259003
Souma took on several dozen of the 2nd years post-Stagiare, he probably defeated most if not all of them in Shokugekis
Hard to say if there are any non-Elite third years, though they would be weaker than Eizan at least
>>
>>145259105
There are. If you look at the leaderboard for the moon festival, you can see like 20 or so 3rd years.

But yeah, we have to remember that the top 4 second years are considered better than all but the top 5 third years, and the top first year is considered better than all but the top 5 third years and top 4 second years.

The rest of the top 5 first years probably outrank most 2nd and 3rd years too, even without muh jewels generation, which may extend that to like the top 10.
>>
>>145258557
>I find it hard to believe that PSD is the only rebel group.
Nao, Mimasaka, Alice and Ryou are not from PSD. There are the E10 who lost their places too.

we got a nice Hisako face this chapter, that's all I needed. I'm happy

I think she looked better in the outfit she tried on and rejected for the Karaage arc than the one she went with.

I was okay with Meat this chapter except for that panel with the shitty lips.
>>
>>145268556
Yeah. Why would they emphasize on her disgusting lips.
>>
>>145267255
Man, I love it when girls tease or poke fun at their crush. It's so cute.

Anyone have that LN pic where the PSD crew go to help with Isshiki's cooking class?

So when will Souma and Erina learn the joys of endless recreational sex?
>>
>>145268951
All Erina is perfection.

She is great but molecular cuisine is for fucking snobs and pretentious idiots that can't cook. Molecular cuisine is so early 2000's

But this feels like the endgame arc.

I can't see Tsukuda and tosh going the full three years.
>>
>>145270035
They will go full comfy. I wish
>>
>>145268393
which one was that?
>>
>>145270035
Probably 2 years. It'll end when Souma takes the top seat, and there's no way that happens in year 1.

Do I just love tsunderes, or is Erina done well?
>>
>>145270035
no not this arc, Azami is going to be the big bad and not a stepping stone, but we've got another arc or two after hokkaido.
>>
>>145270277
Neither, you just love Erina despite her tsundereshit. She's gotten better lately because she's pretty much dropped all of that and became a different stereotype.
>>
>>145270277
She's cute and doesn't flip back and forth like a sperg, so it doesn't really say anything about how you feel towards tsunderes in general.
>>
To confirm
Did Megumi lose the bowl?
>>
>>145270541
Depends on what bowl you mean.
>>
>>145270541
this >>145270603
she was never in the running for the soumabowl but there are others she can still win

this chapter seems to cement that she's going to be a long-term close friend of erina, so there's that
>>
>>145270541
If you're asking whether Erina and Souma are literally a couple yet, no.
>>
>>145269086
Thank you anon.

She's not a tsundere though, she's an ice queen. There's a difference.
>>
>>145270277
Erina is a good tsundere. Dont know why she gets the hate she does.
>>
>>145272765
I don't think she counts as a Tsun
>>
>>145271680
That's the oldest kind.

>>145273030
Don't forget that tsun comes from tsuntsun, the onomatopoeia for turning your nose up at something like a snob.
>>
>>145273535
Yeah I know, but she's not a 'classic' tsundere nor is she the Asuka schizo tsundere. She's a defrosting ice queen.

Erina wants to get man handled. She'd probably think of Saiba while fucking Soma.
