Hopefully they don't drag out the A block. I wonder who will get that 4th spot, and if anyone will beat Alice's score.
I know.... 4th spot in A block
Will anyone from A block be able to beat Alice's score...
The color spreads is awesome, that's all I could say at this point. It'd be another surprise if someone from A's block come out on top, beating Alice's score though.
The raw is out now
Thanks! So, Megumi got some support from her hometown . And it seems like it was there she learnt how to cut up that fish so skillfully . And her mother recommended her to got to Tootsuki to "experience the world" (I guess she kinda felt that someone with Megumi's talent was wasted in a rural town like theirs)... No surprise about Alice though, her being fairly close to Erina in terms of skill was strongly hinted at back when in that test with the eggs...
Soma will be #2 for sure, never show your true power before the real competition begins.
I don't know what kind of message that would send if Soma finishes ahead of the "Curry" expert, or if he finishes with higher points than Alice. For some reason I felt that Soma was made to kind of perform less than Erina and Alice for a while, until he truly is on their level. Who knows he might possibly be lower than Erina and Alice's aids, and get lower points than them.
If he gets such a high score on this curry dish then that kind of smashes the idea that he would still have to beat out the top first years before heading into the top 10 of the school. I think the mangaka will want to have Soma slowly improve and get to Erina and Alice's level, but who knows he might have Soma get a higher score than Alice in this tournament.
Ch.57 is out folks http://casanovascans.com/read/shokug...en/0/57/page/1
Really good chapter, although I expected more commentaries about Alice's dish. Well, I think stay the judges speechless was a good signal. XD
IIRC I said in a previous chapter that the judges already came across various restaurants and dishes, they are experienced people, they were seeking for something news, and Alice fulfilled it. Probably she will have the best score of the preliminaries, I don't see Hayama getting more than her despite of his specialty.
This chapter was for Megumi. After all kinds of suffering, she finally revealed her talent. As I said many times, she has a great talent, but she lacks in self confidence. I hope that this victory makes her more confident. I'm rooting for her at the second round. She will not win, though, too early for a victory of this magnitude. XD
Now, we have this:
I managed to predict what would happen in the Block B. Let's see Block A...
Kurokiba - 93 points
Marui - 88 points
Ibusaki - 88 points
Nikumi - 86 points
Sakaki Ryouko - 86 points
Alice! - 95 points
Arato Hisako - 92 points
Takumi Aldini - 90 points
Megumi Tadokoro - 88 points
Houjou Miyoko - 87 points
Isami Aldini - 87 points
Yashino Yuuki - 86 points
Sadatsuka Nao - 84 points
Block A is very hard to predict. If Hayama and Yukihira pass, there will be a tie between Marui and Ibusaki. It will be solved only if one of them doesn't pass.
There will be a tie-break or one of them will not pass?

Erina and Alice studied on Tootsuki since Middle School, there is a clear difference of levels, of truly knowledge. Yukihira is good, but he is in Tootsuki, there are many people better than him for sure. He has a natural talent, but he makes mistakes, too, like in the camp arc. He has many things to learn yet.

Aaand Alice won Gruop B, this was to be expected. But her win showed her biggest weakness (the weakness of scientific cuisine in general) aswell. The judges could not describe WHY they liked her dish, it was outstanding but at the same time nothing but show. Once you get used to it the surprise is over and her scores would plummet meaning she has to be even more extravagant next time.
Tadokoro on the other hand made very clear whats to like about her dish. her message is simple and kidn which would make real costumers return to her restaurant every time and leave with a big smile on their face. She is the very avatar of family cooking and kindness in this manga.
