A dark age of cooking befalls Tootsuki Culinary Academy. With the Elite Ten's devastating coup d'état, Azami Nakiri is now the director of the prestigious school. Students must now conform to Azami's ideology of "true gourmet food" and are forbidden to express creativity, or else face expulsion.

However, Souma Yukihira and the members of the Polar Star Dormitory refuse to accept these changes. Aided by other rebellious first-years, including the tenth seat, Erina Nakiri, Souma and his allies band together to fight off supporters of Azami's regime. But corrupt instructors and the menacing Central organization stand in their way, and so they must work together, harder than ever before, to survive every underhanded plot designed to banish them from the school.

The totsuki train arc is the second part of the third season of Shokugeki no Souma. It's a direct continuation of the first part and similar in many aspects.

The story is now about a series of cooking battles the rebels need to survive to not be expelled and to have a chance at completing their goals.

The characters, animation, music and voice acting are similar or the same as in ...

Mixed Feelings
This has the same problems as before (look at my first 12 episodes review) and one more: there is no need to fight fairly.
If all the teachers and judges are paid and under the director influence thay can simply say that the food is bad and expel the rebels.
Gosh they could even expel them without any reason.
The facty is that we didn't need such a villain, the series was good enough when the obstacals were harsh teachers, the very competive world of high cousine and other very talented students, there is no space for a totally evil villain in a fight were the wepons are ...
Jan 21, 2021
While it has been a while since I watched the first two seasons of Food Wars, it's sad how much less I enjoyed this season (particularly S3 part 2) compared to the previous ones & there are several obvious reasons why my enjoyment decreased so dramatically.

For starter's I can only suspend my belief so much. The challenge of having Central trying to expel some rebellious students from the school & ONLY wanting gourmet restaurants just seems so far-fetched to me. I can't imagine it would actually be that hard to kick some kids out if they really wanted to, especially since Central has no issues ...
