    it's not the Ebisawa girl, because her last name is Ebisawa :p not Yukihira. He just took his wife's name I believe.

    Btw, did they ever explain why Gin became 1st seat and not Jouichirou? I've been curious about that since the beginning of the manga

    Nope, but I imagine it´s similar to current Rindou just fooling around eating instead of aiming for Tsukasa´s position (including that they seem to be good friends too according to that flashback omake), or like Garp deciding to stay simply as VA in One Piece.

    He probably didn´t see much difference between 2nd and 1st place in the E10 and decided to stay like that.

    Might just be me, but that last page where he stood there alone staring at the dish reminded me of when Jouichirou was talking about how the only way to move forward is through 'encounters'. It was then followed by a page of Erina alone in her room also with a single empty dish staring her 'unchanging self'.

    Perhaps this was where he learned that lesson. Gin made it pretty clear that Jouichirou's no longer able to find new 'encounters' anymore since everyone's running away like a bitch so it may no longer have been an option for him.

    Gin explained that while Saiba was the superior cook, he remained 2nd seat because the E10 also take the academics into consideration. Saiba was always skipping lectures, not doing homework and paperwork, and was generally a slacker with everything else except cooking and showdowns.

    Dat Ebisawa girl. Oh and do we know the names of those groupies who wanted to eat his experiments?

    Damn, poor Joichirou. Burnt out. Ah well, setting out on your own to gain some perspective is a pretty good thing to do.

    Well, that was a less dramatic ending than I imagined. Thought he'd run off on his own.
    Wonder if this was the last chapter of the FB or if there's more coming from Souichirou about his trip.

    That was pretty interesting nonetheless. Looks like Gin felt guilty knowing they pressured Saiba too much, while Nakamura got a bruised ego in the end.

    So basically this refers to Souma at some point being able to go through the "storm" without as much trouble cause he doesn´t give a shit about anything while Jouichirou fell tot he pressure?

    Fucking loved the panel where Doujima is scolding Jouichiro and Souma is just cracking up in laughter.

    Anyway only the remaining E10 will participate?
    Erina will participate?
    I assume if the answers are yes and no respectively, and that the ones already expelled are not a llowed to butt in.

    Isshikki, Kuga and former 3rd seat will join on Souma´s side to make it even on numbers of course also assuming that not all the E10 spots were filled immediately and only hayama took one spot.

    Kuga already appeared but he didn´t reach his goal of taking a E10 spot again; and the other two haven´t appeared even though it wa simplied at the beginning of the arc that they were going too.

    Actually, I'm thinking we are going to see a flashback during this Team Shokugeki. Azami will get the upper hand on Jouchirou...he'll think back to the reasons why he left, and the amazing life he lived as a result, we see her...then he stomps. Flashback induced powerups...as is shounen tradition.

    I thought damn they're OP at first but then of course they had to have shitty teamwork so they'd fail. But yeah. They're going to gain lots of experience from this.

    So much so even, that they're going to win :D

    Oh this chapter was hilarious :gokuskully

    At first I thought "Well that's one balanced as hell split, Saiba team so OP" but it makes sense, they're all good cooks on their own but they have very little in the teamwork department, while Megumi and Takumi are a lot more family oriented so having good cooperation is fitting, and Dojima is just Dojima. Pretty good chapter anyways.

    I'm really surprised Souma wants his dad to follow proper procedures. Is it a mistranslation? It just doesn't seem like him to want to follow normal methods. In my head, Souma and Jouichirou would be doing some weird shit together like a wacky duo while Erina's completely lost.

    Usually Souma follows the recipe and then while following steop by step he adds stuff he thinks will improve the dish, mainly he probly stuck to that principle even more while helping at Shinomiya´s.

    On the other hand Jouichiro seems to take everything out from his ass, even being his son I don´t think Souma would really follow his pace at first.

    And when in a team it's essential the other team mates now what the hell you want to do. If you try to do your own recipe, the others can't react. Like whatshername did last chapter.

    Chapter's out http://mangastream.com/r/shokugeki_no_souma/201/3996/1
    Spoiler:

    The rivalry between Yukihira and Takumi is nice. Was interesting seeing Takumi with the haircut, first time they showed that if I'm not mistaken? Overall quite a cool chapter.

    I don't know if Yukihira's team will lose just yet, now that their engines are revving up, but it would be interesting if they did, since by losing it'll give them more potential for growth having seen how Megumi and Takumi are able to easily support Dojima, and add further improvements to the recipe.

    I prefer it, both the hair and the loss, we all know team 2 is not as good as Yukihira's team but at least in this one aspect they should have the potential to put them in their place (which also gives them the fire and determination to grow even more as chefs). A win would be eh, rather disappointing, since there's hardly any losses for Yukihira as it is and this moment is setup perfectly for a loss.

    Pretty neat, funny how everyone's so shocked that even Nakiri got swept up in the yukihira atmosphere, lol. Looks like they had enough time to work together so they might win next chapter which is bummer, hopefully they still lose but with Aizen setting everything up maybe it's a bad time to give Souma an L, but eh. We shall see anyways.
