You sound so triggered when I called your favorite manga/anime a shit one.

Anyway, Souma will win with the same "SURPRISE!!!" ingredient on his food that no character could anticipate it. This current arc in my opinion is a critical one to the story. Since it is a important one, there's no way Souma can lose. The ten best chefs are nothing but fodders compared to our godly chef MC.

It's not that my answer is shit. It's the author who is at fault for creating this same "surprise" everytime someone who is hyped up by everyone around him/her as someone who is extremely good at what they do goes up against Souma in a shokugeki.

Tell me your prediction too. Tbh, as someone who's as biased to their favorite anime/manga; it isn't really worth hearing/reading. Casual.
will win? pfft well okay, I will respect your opinion after epsd 12 is airing soon. tbh Im not that much pissed and yeah Im a little-bit pissed, glad to calm down my emotion quickly. if I do that, I will say"hope you will pissed with your tr@sh missprediction"early.


I'm reading the manga and Souma has yet to lose against his opponents.

I stopped watch this anime because there was too much foodgasms and I found Erina so annoying and her character was unlikeable

I just hope they fix the pacing issues that season 3 had.


Surprising,I think the same.

Hmm well its nice that we finally get to see the promotional arc in the anime since that arc is far better than the Central arc that was covered in s3. Im looking forward to seeing the E10 get fleshed out by their respective seiyuu's and voice actors though since S3 only showed the briefest of their strengths. I really hope that they retain Hisako Kanemoto as Erina though as i like her more than Risa Taneda's portrayal of her.

Ever since the pacing changed to 4 chapters every Episode in this season. I pretty much expecting this outcome. This season's pacing are too fast compared to the flow of the Source material. It could end with around 24 Episodes more until the latest manga chapter if the pacing still continue like this...


Hope It turned out well next time, and I'm expecting the pacing is better than this season... Expecting Taneda Risa voicing Erina this time, though Kanemoto Hisako did a great job too...

CAN WE JUST STOP. Stop milking the series. S T O P.

How are they milking the series when it hasn't even ended yet?

I should catch up with the manga already.

@Oira_yukihira

Did you only create that account to give the anime a 10/10?

The current arc is absolute shit. Can't believe some people are still devoted in following this when you can pretty much predict what will happen with ease and no excitement at all. Although shounen follows the same formula again and again there are still a few authors that even though the story is predictable can still make it very exciting and fun for the readers to watch/read. Yūto Tsukuda is definitely not one of those authors.

Shun Saeki's art is wasted on this. He would've made more money if he just made hentai doujins of SnS.

Watching Matsuoka cook is far more entertaining than watching this anime.

Wait, is the fourth season of souma series will continue from souma's team vs ten elite chef members or not ?

If yes, why they don't continued it (so, that season have 24 episodes, not 12 episodes) ?

If no, is that spin off of souma series or not ?

Dec 17, 2017 7:17 AM by ronald_bastian

was planning to continue anime to manga after this season, thought everyone here said it was going to be 24 eps straight? split cour heh, so this current season could be end at ep 13? no yes? haven't touch the manga yet T.T guess I read the manga early then.

Not a fan of this anime. It would be better if they stop making another season for this. I do not like both second and third season and now there is another one coming. <(O_o)>
You can choose not to watch it and let the other people enjoy
