Following the sudden changes to Tootsuki Culinary Academy's administration, Erina Nakiri runs away from home to escape the torment of her oppressive father. Taking refuge at Polar Star Dormitory, the chaotic environment she ends up in is a far cry from her usual refined lifestyle. However, with the help of her friends, Erina gradually finds her place among the dormitory's eccentric residents—creating memorable experiences outside the world of cooking along the way.

Her haughtiness is almost been completely done away with and supplanted with her more tsundere personality. I predict even more romantic tension with Souma going forward, and plenty more opportunity for her to humble ...
