Look I'm sure the A5 meat was out-of-this-world good, but the cheap meat along with the other ingredients created one harmony which makes the eater want more while the A5 rice did not mix with the garlic rice. I'm obviously sure that the A5 alone would have beaten the cheap meat. It annoys me to see people complain when in reality, the outcome made complete sense.
There is the matter of why she bothered making a strong flavored rice to begin with. To bring into focus the meat's flavor, plain boiled rice would have been enough... If she is just thinking about meat, then this option would make more sense.

Of course, there is no denying that a rice that complements the meat is better. So he could still have won against that. It just seems a bit convoluted to have her to make an effort in the wrong direction.

Souma-kun made it! He won Ikumi-san on her own game with meat... That's very amazing! ^.^
But now I'm feeling to bad about Ikumi making part of Don Society but without Souma... I really thought he was really stay there for a long time.

The food they're suppose to make is where every part of the don is complimented. Nikumi was so focus on the quality of meat than the food as whole. Souma in the other hand values the importance of every part of the don, which is the toppings and the rice. Nikumi failed to do the same.

Whew, thank god I actually ate before watching this episode. Nikumi cooking her A5 meat looked hella delicious.

And Souma is master troll. xD Buying cheap meat at half price and simply not joining the Dons at the end was just hilarious.

Aldini bros next episode! :O

I still can't believe they have to use their own ingredients, that defeats the whole purpose of a fair competition or how the judges are also biased when it comes to the ingredients, even mocking Souma before they taste his food.


I never understood that either but Yukimura kicked ass ofc.

It's fairly common in anime food competitions... I guess it makes it more "exciting" when the one with cheap ingredients win (which almost always happens if it's the MC)

Great episode! It seems like they toned down the foodgasms compared to the first episodes, I don't really mind. Soma showing up with that half price meat after all the A5 presentation was hilarious.

Oh my! This episode! Nikumi written in hiragana is actually cute indeed!

Poor girl lost her kitchen, betrayed by her first crush and stuck with Donvis Presley for the rest of her high-school life.

Someone needs to give Tadokoro a hug and tell her to calm down for once! <3

From the manga (I don't remember if it was in the anime), before the battle:
Nikumi: "No matter what dish you make it won't beat my super high grade meat".
Souma: "I think rejoicing only over ingredients' cost is a disgrace for a chef".

One of Souma's apparent reasons for taking the challenge was to prove Nikumi wrong, so
if Souma didn't beat her with regular ingredients then his statement would've been proven wrong.

Iow, "See, you needed super high grade meat to beat me", proving her indirect price=result claim, which
in turn would've meant that rejoicing only over the ingredients' cost were the proper thing to do.

you're going to a cooking challenge not a swimsuit contest -_- but she did look like she's playing an instrument when cutting the meat and her past is messed up and of course he was going to win the fuck did you expect?

Souma's first actual shokugeki with Nikumi has ended with Souma winning with his cheap discount male compared to Nikumi's A5 meat. :D Oh man, this episode made me want to drool so badly. The music made the entire shokugeki match really intense too. xD Lots of Nikumi fanservice but with the way she's dressed it's hard not to have fanservice scenes with her. :P

J.C. Staff is definitely doing a good job with this adaptation, loving the anime every week. Nikumi totally has feelings for Souma now haha. xD

She didn't go in the wrong direction. The problem was she went in the same direction. The problem wasn't a clashing between the garlic rice and the beef; the garlic rice was sauteed in beef fat and butter. She served beef on beef-flavored garlic rice--which was fine for as long as the beef lasted, but once you've satiated your taste for beef you have no reason to finish the rice. It's like too much of a good thing.
Plain rice would have been worse; transparently used as just a vehicle for the meat, it wouldn't even qualify as a don and you'd really have no reason to finish plain rice unless you were simply hungry.

I KNOW souma will be the winner!
that was amazing! loved it when he said the one who talks too much can't be trusted.
wohoooooooo!!! I can't wait for another battle in the future.
loved his baka-face so much and his modest personality >.<
god, I wonder if souma would face any failure in the future that would break my heart ;_____;

Damn Souma trolled everyone. I thought he was part of the Don club too.

Nikumi has to be the best girl in this series. I mean the way she handle that meat was so sexy. Plus she was so cute at the end with her school outfit. I like her better like that.

Next episode looks like its going to be just as good. Hope to see more Nikumi tho :)

I really would love to try eating some premium A5 beef at least once in my lifetime. :P I'm not even sure if there's a restaurant or a hotel in this country that serves it.

I love how this Shokugeki ended. Souma wins, Nikumi joins the RS Don as per conditions of the Shokugeki, but Souma has no interest of joining the club. Nikumi got traded to the RS Don without ever getting to work with Souma. xD What a troll! xDD

Why not both?


The camera sure does love Nikumi, and I'm certainly not complaining. Glad she's sticking around.

Soma continues to be an awesome character, though I wonder if he'll ever have any trouble with anyone in the future. So far, he's crushed all his competition. Almost effortlessly too.

I agree with having both :)

All??
Its his first real shokugeki, isn't it?
Oh, he won't win all the time..


He isn't one of the usual hope/spine/whateverless male MC's that's a dime a dozen in anime, so he doesn't begin the series by losing just about every single time like some seem to expect. If he did, it would've been questionable how he even entered that elite school.

I see. I didn't watch carefully. It wasn't an obviously bad combination, just not as well considered as Souma's.

As implied, a smaller amount of that rice would have been more adequate for the dish, except then it would not have been a "don". So basically she underestimated the theme, led by her contempt for the club.

Wow, Erina is quite ruthless to immediately dismiss Mito just because she lost.
How inflated can her ego get? And I kinda feel bad for the Don Society, lol, with how clueless Yukihira is and the way he left everyone in the dust.
And already a harem? LOLOLOLOLOL

Best episode so far of the best new franchise this season.

"Villain" was great, food could have been a bit more interesting if the basic idea hadn't been explained in the previous episode, but Souma wasn't as much of an insufferable jackass as usual.

Indeed, which is fitting because we've seen the disdain in their elite school for the food enjoyed by the masses. But she couldn't help it; getting to understand the philosophy of the dish would have implied the dish had some merit. Much like Souma could not win with expensive ingredients without undermining his principles, Nikumi could not prove that donburi was a worthless dish to research without showing it could be beaten *solely* on the basis of superior ingredients. Respecting the theme was out of the question for her in the first place.

Oooh, Nikumi has a crushieee. Lol! She's cute when she's flustered.

I had a very strong inkling that Souma wouldn't/didn't join the club.. He never initially said he'd join nor did he fill up an application form. He just asked to take part in the challenge. Souma = no.1 troll. :P

The meat looked so good that I'm craving for it now, but too bad I gave up meat entirely early this year.

Even though I read the manga, I felt very excited while watching this episode. I'm also glad that they toned down the foodgasms.

Nikumi is (second) best grill. Can't wait to see more of her (if the anime goes that far).

Training Camp arc begins next week :D

It's a bad idea to read the manga again just before the episode, the anime lacks impact the manga had and this episode budget went down and there was some slightly rushed part especially with the introduction of the judge and their explanation but it is still a good episode of a great adaptation!

So this is a harem anime with the harem voice actor.The cooking just filler.

Just another episode for perverts and Otakus. The show does certainly improve and the humor get´s alot better, but comeone this was unnecessary.
It´s a mediocore show for a reason.
I couldn´t choose if I was meant to have a boner or get hungry. So I did both.

Seriously how to make this the perfect show.
1. Make every episode revolve around meat.
2. Enhance the fanservice make the show 16+.
3. Put in beer references and remove all the PG 13 comedy.
There we go you have yourself the manliest Anime since Hellsing and Gurren Lagann
