yeah I hope for a flashback regarding Mama Yukihira at some point to see her personality , if Joichrio is stating Soma gets his personality from her :yes: Also though wouldn't that mean Soma would want a woman who is strong willed and can stand against him and compete with him in his cooking? :hehehe:

Well, remember this is probably the woman that really got him out of his funk, and put the spring back in his step. So, her being the type of person that doesn't worry about status or something wouldn't be that surprising.

Well looks like they've skipped atleast a week, and for some reason we still don't know what has happened to Erina, This a kidnapping for crying out loud, don't just push it aside like it's a minor issue, has Erina been returned? Why is no one panicking regarding the situation? these things need explaining. The kidnapping itself was ridiculous as it was, but the manner in which it's been handled is one of the worst piece of writing I have seen, and I've read Naruto.

He said he was letting her go, and that if he wins the Blue she would have to marry him.

But I thought She'd compete too although she is headmistress now so that would pose a problem. Oh well

The way he talked it sounds like she is. Since, she the God's Tongue, a Nakiri, and the head master. She probably was moved ahead like Asahi.

Unless the translation is wrong, there is no mention of letting her go, he made the challenge, however there was no mention of her being released, there is the likelihood that is indeed the case but the manga does not really tell you one way or another.

I would have thought Souma would have been advanced to the second stage ahead of Takumi and Megumi, as he is the number one seat, and defeated the former second seat. That is with the assumption that Erina got bumped up to the third stage or higher as well, if she's only been advanced to stage two, then Souma being first stage is understandable.

 

It will be interesting to see how these battles will be set out, because there is no real development of any of the individuals on the Noir team, even Azahi is a recent annoyance added to the mix, so for the reader there isn't a invested interest in seeing these guys get defeated. So will they rush through it all, or take their time, and will that be enough to keep readers interested, the speed we got to this stage itself feels rush, as if to suggest the current ark does not hold their interest. Even the last ark with Azami, even though they were facing the Elite 10, the interest looked like it was waning half way through and felt like many of the battles were rushed because of that, this is much worst.

From what I recall. He kidnapped her to show he was the villain, and promised to let her go while also challenging her at the Blue.

These challenges for the blue are increasingly not that impressive. Its like they don't know what to do after they beat Erina's dad...or even before that.

Honestly it's felt like they don't know what to do since part way through the last arc, it's probably a decision they regret making, the manga would have been better off having these nonsensical arcs before they introduced Azami. The direction the manga was going in before that, with Souma's battle with Kuga was enjoyable, and Souma's growth made sense, Azami should have been the second or third to last boss before his old man and Erina, not someone they had to defeat when the MC's growth was still in the earlier phase.

 

Now they have to up the ante, so they introduced this plot device who we had never had any indication of existing, alongside his group of underground chefs. They are trying to build tension but it's done in such a ridiculous manner that it comes off as comical, which may be what they are going for, considering how they've casually crudely handled a kidnapping and a plan to commit suicide.

 

Also I'm not the only one who has pointed this out but it looks like the new examiner design was ripped off from SSSS.Gridman, not sure if that's just lazy design, or coincidence, normally I'd go with coincidence but the way the manga is going I'm not so sure.
