This thread is to discuss the Shokugeki no Soma L'étoile spinoff serialized in Shounen Jump+
(The first chapter has been already scanlated by Casanova and can be read in Batoto too)
I personally liked the first chapter quite a lot more than I first expected, while it has a very similar feeling to many parts of the main series (especially to the first chapter), seeing a professional chef and not a student do it has a different kind of coolness to it.
I just feel it's a bit of a shame that we're not getting continuity here, I mean, ch 1 is about Kojirou after the events in the training camp but ch 2 will be about his high school days...I mean, that's cool because we'll get to see more of Fuyumi and Hinako too, but I kinda wanted to see more of the current Kojirou
I have no comment to add on related to the content, but honestly the art... is simply inferior compared to the main series. Not awfully bad, but considering that my eyes have been pampered by the gorgeous, mouth-watering art of the main series, this spin-off becomes less interesting than what I hoped it to be.

Is it canon to the original series?
The first chapter was rather good, I liked it. I was worried that they would describe Shinomiya life before his Shokugeki against Megumi, but it was after. I couldn't stand his selfishness if were before, Megumi really changed him a lot. I don't have much to say so far, it was just the presentation of the premise and characters, but it was well executed. I'm gonna continue reading it.
PS: It is just me or it is has potential to become romance?
