What, no foodgasm from Erina's grandfather?

Looks like you still have further to go, Souma!

It's going to be ridiculously cliche, but I'm kinda anticipating the chapter when more bombs are dropped on the calibre of Souma's dad.

I'm also glad that the story isn't going to shy away from a more serious romance subplot, given that there are... many occasions where romantic elements in non-romcom stories stalk themselves to a crawl...

At least I hope so, based on the allusion from Daddy Souma.

"Food Mafia"?

Now I think have heard of everything. Souma's father is also simultaneously one of the greatest and worse dads ever. Giving a knife to three year-old? Seriously?!

I also agree with general sentiment toward this series. It's been awhile since I have enjoyed a Jump manga like this (or at least since Nurarihyon no Mago anyway.) Here's to hoping that doesn't catch Jump's epidemic cancellation disease.

I'm guessing you mean "stall themselves to a crawl", as stalking romance sound frightening.

Who said his father did it?

With that said, explain the mother's disappearance.

Well, i'm hoping for a character development for that girl where she became independent or strong in the end and hopefully she will be a girl who will be close to soma and Erina will be jealous of her in the future.

She's basically the Mr. Watson to Soma's Sherlock Holmes.
In a way I would say she's filling an inevitable role. She's the bottom of her class, mundane character to accompany the genius.
Soma is just waaay too overtalented, though he has a goal to reach his father, the starting line for him is already at the genius level.

Since "growth" will be harder to measure for characters like him, someone starting at the ground level is paired instead to portray growth. Or so we hope.
Remember Neuro and his assistant (and protagonist) Yako? Neuro was the all-mighty character, Yako was the earthling with much larger scale of growth.

Let's hope she doesn't end up like Kawachi from Yakitate Japan. Well, being a cute girl already prevents her from ending up as the butt of most jokes, but hopefully she'll end up being a strong character.

Define rushed.

One chapter, dedicated towards introducing and establishing the basic characteristics of one side-character ( 2 if you count the teacher ) is pretty reasonable.

Ch 5: Those reactions.... I don't even know what anymore.

Gotta loved how over top the faculty in this school is. Hell the french chef only gives out two grades A and E. No wonder the school has such a high failing rate, this almost a sport to teachers! Looking forward to whatever weirdos we got coming out next.

Oh and it's nice that he's got a guinea pig now, guess she will be in both heaven and hell if Souma's tastes are anything to go by.

One of things like about this chapter is that it shows he can make bad food and still has much to learn. I don't think that Souma isn't so as much "overtalented" but rather that he has a huge amount of experience and intuition. Remember unlike most people Souma was taught how to cook as soon as he could walk and talk. He was already working the kitchen in a professional diner while going to school and being instructed by his apparently world famous Dad. He's had a big head start compared to everyone which is further topped by his creative and resourceful nature that likely came from a result of many failed experiments. Souma being an overachiever plus talented is what makes him a force to reckoned with.

I really like the character design in this series. I can't wait to see a formal introduction of the characters in chapter 4.

I did feel a little bit of it from this chapter, with Souma easily winning favor of one of the toughest teachers in the school. It can't be that all the upcoming rival students are harder to please than the teachers, right?

However, there is a weakness in him in that his cooking experience and intuition is mostly restricted within his diner, so he knows nothing of the wider culinary world and is ignorant of culinary theory. He only knows about the honey solution because he experimented, not because he knows chemistry, so he's going to flounder when given his first paper test to fill out. Of course, this is probably why his father told him to close the shop and go see the world first.
