Raw of ch18 is out at http://raw.senmanga.com/Shokugeki_no_Soma/18/1/
Fear the kaki seed merman! Wonder who won. Lovin' how Shokugeki no Souma is a consistent top 5 ranker in the Jump polls.
I'm guessing it's a draw? Well, some already read the raws of chapter 19 so they know. I just don't want to see Souma winning every time and I don't want him to lose yet so I'm betting it's a tie. And they'll settle again in the second round.
It's probably a draw. Man, I feel like there's too many draw in this manga lately.
Training camp? More like slave labor.
An encounter with Erina...this can only end well.
Upcoming chapter thought based on spoilers:
The indiscriminate fan service has been one of this series' charm points since chapter one. Ecchi images of young girls and women? Boring, done to death. Ecchi images of both men and women, young and old and really old? Refreshing, titillating when not downright hilarious.
It seems like a showdown will happen to prevent a certain young beautiful female character from being fired by the annoying evil four-eye instructor.
Meh, I know it ain't happening, but I kinda wish Souma would just accept Megumi's expulsion. I'm sure next chapter we'll learn that the reason the evil four eyes sent her packing is some monstrously selfish or contrived reason like what Eri-chan did to Souma. Souma wil angrily barge in, make a lame speech, and then they'll have a Shokugeki Showdown. If Souma wins, Megumi stays, if not, they're both expelled. Of course, I don't see why a graduated almum would bother doing that, seeing as they have the final word in the exams, Souma's complaints should be futile; no reason to risk being undermined by a 1st year. So, either evil four eyes is so extremely arrogant that he accepts a showdown with Souma; or a higher up interferes, once again like with Erina's rejection of Souma, and authorizes the showdown.
I highly doubt Souma can beat the evil four eyes instructor yet. That guy is a graduate of this school, right? It's said to count the person who graduated, one hand will be enough. Here
That's further reinforce again here.
That's less than 5 people. In the other word, half of elite ten. If he can already beat the better half of elite ten that already graduate at this point in the story, I'll have much less to look forward to in the future. It's just too fast. Maybe make the four eye "accept Souma". But losing to Souma just loooks like bad story writings to me.
Souma's pop advice: Love can bring out the ultimate cooking skills, hence Souma will transform into a completely person. Well, it makes some sense if he has some hidden potentials which are brought out under some extremely rare situations.
Being better at a particular dish won't make him overall better than those alumni.
That punk had to see it coming, Soma give it your all!
That alumni is nuts, any chef who can't accept his recipes to get changed to match the ingridients ist nothing but a joke.
He never gave anyone the same chance therefore his exam would be void in the real world anyway (ok cooking schools that crazy most likely don't exist anyway)
I am really excited to see what dish they'll compete on
