Thanks to Souma Yukihira, Erina Nakiri, and the rebel forces overthrowing the regime of Azami Nakiri—the previous school director—and the former Elite Ten, Tootsuki Culinary Academy is back in order. However, its students have one more great battle ahead of them: the BLUE, a competition where young chefs seeking world-class fame compete. Faced with new trials and rivals, Souma and his friends will fight to conquer the BLUE and to defeat Asahi Saiba, the leader of an underworld organization of chefs known as Noir, who once defeated Souma and his father in a Shokugeki.

So 13 weeks in and now at the end of Gou no Sara, I never got to a point where I felt this season was as bad as people had hyped it up to be. I waited week after week for it to get awful and it just never came for me. I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of this final season and saw it as a victory lap of sorts for the series. We saw everyone come full circle this season and show off their development. Of particular importance for me was the growth that Megumi, Erina and Aldini have had. For me, that read more

After 4 relatively strong seasons Shokugeki is back with its final arc, many fans expected the previous season to be a good place to finish the series, between the manga ending and the overall satisfactory place the anime ended it seemed to be a great place to end the show. The fans were 100% right, this season blows and there isn’t a better or easier way to describe it, Shokugeki no Soma was never a series known for being particularly good, its essentially food porn the anime, with exaggerated over the top reactions and some great comedy. However, even with knowledge of the manga having read more

To improve his cooking skills and to save the restaurant, Souma begins studying in Engetsu Teahouse Culinary Academy, which is regarded as Japan's top culinary academy. The problem is that read more

After watching it until last episode, I know how disappointing this is, really.

The story begins with the introduction of the arrival of summer, the students of Totsuki Academy must fight the first stage of the exam. After that, some teacher comes to Totsuki Academy, his name is Asahi. He's a ugly bastard who are interested with Nakiri's oppai.... And then the last tournament "BLUE" begins.

The story of Souma's mom
Now, what really caught the attention of the personal writer was the telling of the figure of Souma's mom. This is very interesting because in the previous seasons, the figure of Souma's mom has never even been read more
