I won't be surprise if what's happening with Erina now is something similar to that.
That was just bad writing

Man, it seems what Eishi said about the heaven and earth things hasnt reach a lot of readers
I dont even think Souma could win against Kuga in the festival not to talk about Shokugeki. Souma will busy struggle with keeping his sale in decent pace or else EXPELL!

And if Souma luckily has a thick plot shield, he may have a chance to do Shokugeki with Kuga but only to lose, but losing is what Souma calls collecting experience.

I dont know, I feel like Souma is quite near to Erina's level but not there yet, not there to take over the 10th seat yet.

I wonder if the author asked the "culinary advisor" to invent a brand new dish, just so he can make Souma "invent" it in the story at some point...

Thanks for clearing that up.

Actually he already lost in his first big battle. So theoretically he could win this one.

To be honest I doubt Kuga is really as good as he declares, given the other girl constantly laughing at him.
What he indeed is is a showoff. - Whether he would prevail in a 1:1 against Souma if the latter can cook whatever he wants to is another thing.

Actually if Souma challenges Kuga, by school rules, Souma would be the one to call the theme.

Except this barely counts as the first confrontation... Soma's trying to win the qualification to even be allowed that first confrontation.

Even though the dishes made by CRS is 'Kuga-quality' thanks to his training, it's still not Soma vs Kuga, but Soma vs Kuga's machinery.

Ok, analytical question, if this isn't the event Souma is meant to succeed, what would you guys suggest would be a good first win after coming back from the Stagiare period?

I wouldn't say Souma isn't meant to succeed, it just depends on how you determine success. Defeating one of the 10 seats and taking his place isn't going to happen, but the 8th seat being forced to acknowledge that Souma isn't someone he can look down on would already be a success in my book.
As for Souma's next victory against a non-fodder character I figure it'll be against a 2nd or 3rd year student who will be revealed to have the skills but no interest in the 10 seats.

No interest? Did you mean "they have skills, but not enough to enter the 10 seats so they don't bother trying" or "they have enough skills to enter but just too lazy to do that". If it's the latter, I think he should just defeat the 10th seat instead, it should be easier.

Lazy to enter the elites yet u still advise one to defeat the 10th seat, dont u even think yourself sounds conflict

there are reasons for everything, be in the elite 10 is cool but can u do paper works as good as them? Can u create and arrange events? Can u take all responsibility if sth happen?

Just thinking about those question I already lost my motivation to try to enter the Elites even Eishi wants to go down from his seat so his job could be lighter but is there someone could take him down?

I was talking about Souma. The other guy said he should aim for someone other than Elite 10 as his next prey. And I said in case that person skilled enough to enter Elite 10 but too lazy to do so, meaning they must have the ability to take down someone in Elite 10 to enter it (but choose not to), it would be easier for Souma to aim for the lowest position, the 10th seat instead.

The easiest way into the Elite 10 is to wait for the third years to graduate and let the power vacuum create an opportunity.

Kuga looks like a fodder to me. So, I am completely OK for Soma to strip Kuga's throne with a little difficulty. Plus, Soma is definitely need to have one major win after his humiliated against curry boy. It is also a good opportunity to show that he had been levelled up a lot under his sifu's guidance.

I knew that he stomped a lot of fodders after his return but those fodders just don't leave a satisfying conclusion or indicator of New Soma's power. Kuga is a perfect candidates or stepping stone for Soma.

Are you trying to imply that the 8th seat is actually weaker than the 10th seat? Or do you actually believe Elite 10 is numbered from 0 to 9?

Well the seat number has very little to do with how good they are actually at cooking.
It only says that they have beaten the previous seat of their number.

And in Erina's case it is fair to say that she would probably end up being superior.

the other thing is the Elite 10 have no obligation to accept a Shoukugeki. So basically someone far worse than the 10th seat could sit on seat 1 if they beat the previous 1st seat and then refuse to accept any Shoukugeki's.

Or maybe because 9th and 10th had been dodging Soma's challenge since beginning and the 8th happened to put a condition for Soma to trigger it?

It is all about the circumstances. If 1st said that he will accept Soma's challenge if Soma beat him in the festival, you can bet that Soma will go into the third section of the building and challenge his stand. Soma doesn't give a damn on the seat ranking.

As for their power level, i think anything below 7th seat is just roughly equal level.

I am more curious how they gained their positions? Was it due to defeat of previous seat member or just because other seats graduated from the academy

I'm curious about that as well. They must have some method to fill empty seats when people graduate.

the only thing that made me curious is what's stopping the E10 from protecting their seat and power by saying "NO" to all shokugeki challenge until they graduated from the school?

This further reinforces my belief the Megumi-camp here is entirely.. something else.

I mean.. how could he have not known that?

Spoiler for brilliant afterthoughts from a poster in another forum, in which I highly concur with:


BUT I would concede though the timing of Hayama's flashback could have been better executed.

Either way, I'm surprised such a basic rule could've flown over your head.

He could, but the process has to be 'realistic', or else it'll just be an asspull.

Bad relations =/= cooking abilities

I thought this was clearly highlighted during the tea ceremony, by Megumi.

He's an E10, not some scrub, so I don't know why you're underestimating him, since its clear the gulf exists between the group & normal students, as explained in the recent chapter.

Souma will always be the underdog, no matter how you look at it.
