A plus point for Ashita No Joe reference. Didn't think I'd see such reference in a cooking manga, to be honest.
I also thought that the flag was related to her cooking speciality. What other country do you think of when you read 'meat' :-)
Even if the food challenge will be the core of this manga, I hope that we will also have some arc where Souma will improve his cooking skill. After all that's why he came in this school in the first place. So far his genius was displayed quite well but that can't continue for ever.
Don't like Ikumi's design, a tie around her leg, really... and her body is deformed in this picture, the hip to stomach diameter difference s disturbingly big.
But she's the master of meat, so she's got to show some meat too, you understand? Souma's condition to let her joing the Don RS is great, I wonder if the focus will be kept there or if he changes clubs every couple of chapters.
her body is not deformed. it's just because of perspective.
A nice transition chapter. I can't complain since last time I said I would like to see Souma struggling a bit more with his cooking.
And the arrow on the sempai's hair were already funny but I never would have imagined a bandage on them :-)
This chapter had the most detailed explanation regarding dish preparation than any before it, so much that I think I could try to make that steak IRL. As a result, they skimped on the reactions/service in this chapter, but I'm not too disappointed. I look forward this super onion sauce
Other reactions than Mito's are not necessary so it was good not to have any in my opinion.
I liked the reaction, it was so pure and light (fluffy, even), that it worked. I can see it working to get Tadokoro some attention as the pure-hearted dark haired girl of the title.
I end up liking this manga a lot, so I end up finding the oneshot and read it.
I really hope for more Erina x Souma moment. They're awesome.
In this picture, do people think the shadow of the 10 elite are accurate? I'm guessing Erina probably replaced the guy that got defeated in the oneshot. The guy in the right middle can pass as no 7.

So yeah, as I predicted, this chapter is going to be a "preparation for battle" chapter. A nice one since the technical details are a tad more comprehensive this time, compared to the previous battles. The dish picture is also looking more detailed than ever, I really like it.
Spoiler from Arlongpark which I couldn't resist reading
Very glad to see that Soma is starting to get the early spoilers id deserves also can't wait to see the half price tag picture and hope this will not conclude in 1 chapter just to see what kind of a climax the author could create in the middle of such battle.
Souma's meat had it's price cut, hilarious. His don is so awesome Mito had a foodgasm just from the smell. Next week will probably be reactions galore, then the judge results the week after.
