When you see a flashback from the opponent AND get Soma to doubt himself, it is pretty fucking obvious that Soma will win. The two flags are raised.

Thats kind of a bummer, Saito turned out to be quite the interesting and capable character, tho still given his backstory why would he side with Central? After the whole deal with his mom, he wouldnt seem the type of guy to accept their ideals. Guess Azami or someone else promised to take care of her and their restaurant

Yeah, Soma isn't going to make it to the next bout. And by that I mean that he's going to overexert himself in order to attain victory.

^^ i think it is due to such past that he accepted Azami’s ideal, those @sshole treat Saito and his mom badly not because of their lack of skills, but because of some narrow-minded prejudices.

You mean the same kind of narrow-minded prejudices that Azami uses his ideal to treat Souma and the other rebels badly?

^ yeah, it is such hypocrisy, isn’t it?

but we need to remember while Soma and the gang are generally the “good guy”, the vast majority of the culinary world consists of stuck up @sshole despite having limited skills

the Elite Ten are, at the very least, the real deal, and Tsukasa said it best “why should I care if it can help further my cooking?” when he had a match with Soma

looking at Saito's past... I just can't understand why he sided with Azami... nonsense

Tsukasa is looking for perfection
Rindou is just... I dunno about her.. she is too wild
Momo just cared about her own food
The glasses-girl just wanted to beat Itsuki
while Eizan is doing Eizan's thing

I understand about others' intention but not for Saito

I assume it's that he wants it so people just have to properly train and they're accepted (which is Azami's stated goal... outside of the creepy "only food I say is good is good" thing), rather than having to constantly prove themselves day in and day out.

It's a bit of a stretch considering what we know of Azami, but it's the best one I can think of. It also gives him, like Nene, more room to "redeem" himself later.

He wants to destroy the old world of Sushi. Those old chefs treated his mother and her skills like they were absolute garbage so what would be the perfect payback to end their way of Sushi? By having an organization like Central of course. Central plans to shut down anyone that does not follow their way and with Saito being a leading member he could have all those people that treated his mom like nothing closed down permanently. He could force his way and his mothers way of Sushi on those very people that looked down him and his mother. He will be the leading voice on Sushi in Central.

Saito himself stated in the chapter that he plans on turning the world of Sushi upside down. He wants his and his mothers way to be the true way so that no one will look down on them again. Saito is a good kid with a good heart but I believe he is letting revenge blind him. I'm sure he'll see that there are other paths he can follow after his battle with Soma.

They never really said what "their way" was though, did they? I assume it isn't merely "fish isn't the only thing that matters", as that seems to be somewhat common knowledge. The main difference just seems to be "you don't have to be an old man to make sushi".

The latest chapter is on the 2017 #52 issue and the double issue will be 2018 #4-5. The winner of Souma vs Saito match should be revealed in the chapter released on the 2018 #2 issue. I'm hoping the matchups for the 4th bout will be revealed before the magazine's holiday break period.

Just to clarify. Did Saito actually killed the people of those dojo restaurants he challenged? And why is he carrying an actual katana in the open? I mean, isn't it banned since the Meiji Restoration?

Anyway, another character with a sad back story to make us sympathize. I'm pretty sure most of us will feel bad once Souma inevitably defeats Mr Sushi Samurai.

Reminder for this chapter: SnS is a cooking manga.


I just can't shake the feeling that Soma's "this might be bad" most likely has nothing to do with his current situation and Soume's strength.

But at least I can understand the reason for him to joined Azami because he wants to payback to others for wrongdoing his mother in the past. His hatred had blinded him and I don't think his mother will approve that if she (if she still alive lol) know about that.

I guess we're going to see the backstory of every Elite Ten members except the two new members. It seems their backstory is explained during the match they lose. In that case we should have realized Momo wouldn't lose in her match against Megumi because her backstory wasn't explained at that time.

Momo's back story might be revealed in her next matchup.

So the fact that Saito's was explained in this chapter means he's going to lose, @AP24? And yeah, I also think Souma isn't talking about the current situation or Saito's skill when he says it might be bad. He's probably talking about his own dish or something else. He never struck me as the type to worry about the opponent being "too strong for him".

If an original member of the Elite Ten has their backstory explained during a match, then they would lose. This happened to Eizan, Nene, Kuga and Megishima. So if Momo's and Isshiki's backstory is explained during the 4th bout then they will lose there. If Rindou's backstory will also be explained there then she will lose too.

Yeah, I guess you're right. Isshiki would lose too if that happened to him, since it also happened to Megishima who also isn't in the Elite 10 anymore.

That seems to be the pattern. Flashbacks in general is a flag like Megumi's flashback of her lessons with Shinomiya.
