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...

I saw the first three episode at an anime convention, I thought it was great. Should probably catch up before it gets too big...

I should catch up with the manga already.

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

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 ?

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

Wow, that was so fast. Spring will be the best season of the year.

Split-cours always have an entry for its own(example: Owarimonogatari).

Nothing says that they can't have own entry

It's not. It is just getting bad to be honest. I have nothing to say with the current arc.


as bad as current arc is, there is lot of character (especially rindou) worth to pump it merchendise for... you know, money, that's how industry works...

from what i heard, people who shit on current and upcoming arcs are mostly salty megumi fans. and that i should ignore them.


central saga just plain dumb and repetitive and too much MC dick riding that it get annoying....

There are alot of people who Like the current arc, I dont see the problem with it, its better than second season and keeps getting better.
Plus the way they explains the food and the steps to make it is pretty cool so people that are into cooking enjoy it more.


i hope you are joking...

@Stark700

I'm filing a complain against you.

You know why.

I had NO CHOICE but to do this here because you simply REFUSED to open even a SINGLE communication channel AGAIN. You forced my hands here and I won't be nice about it because I'm sick and tired of doing this.

PLEASE CORRECT THE ERRORS ON THE NEWS POST. THE ANIME ENTRY IS STILL SAN NO SARA(餐ノ皿)AND NOT SHI NO SARA.

I'm not letting this go if this post disappears. Until I get the damn problem fixed, this post shall remain here.
