What is this fantasy world where restaurants serve subsequent courses the instant you finish the prior course? In my experience the dish is serve whenever the heck the cooks finish it. I am certainly not an expert in the area of high-cost restaurants, but color me suspicious that a single dish not being ready the instant a single diner finished his prior course would be enough to cause an incident in the kitchen. Also, the estimation was off by 5 minutes? How could that be Yukihira's fault? He's supposed to be cooking a 100 miles an hour and also know what the status is of all 50 people sitting munching away in the next room? Wouldn't that be someone else's job to tell him adjustments to the schedule?

 

Over-hyped drama just annoys me.

 

I actually unfollowed this and just stopped by to check the comments section. Seems like comments are dying down and I assume less people are reading this now than a little while ago. I just got bored of this, and don't have the time in my life anymore to read stuff that I don't enjoy or think is to my tastes, just in the hope that it gets better again.

 

I agree with you, too much over-hyped drama in this. I also don't feel there is an internal consistency to the rules or judging or to character results. I am willing to suspend disbelief of course, but it feels like to me this manga went off the rails with the last cookoff decision and hasn't been able to recover. And since I feel that way, I get the feeling my future reading is always going to be colored that way and I'll never actually be able to truly enjoy this again. I give a LOT of leeway to manga plot and logic and the like, believe me. But when something just isn't fun for me anymore, there's nothing I can do about that.

Well they're shooting to be a 3 star so who knows :P

But yeah for a prefixe meal that's pretty typical, but usually some lead time between meals.


Wouldn't that be someone else's job to tell him adjustments to the schedule?

Yeah the expediter

i just understood that Souma is somewhat a  word play of Umai sou

Failed? When did he fail? I didn't see any failure there.

LoL did you read the same chapter as everybody else here? He obviously fallen behind delaying everyone else, if this is not a fail then i don't know what it is... but the fact he failed is what will make him stronger, it's in true core after all...

How can people just straight up say that soma didnt fail? Blabla, pathetic excuse. He even said himself that he f'd up. Your MC isn't perfect, be grateful that he isn't bland.
Spoiler


Souma is known as the ultimate sore loser.
Every time he makes mistakes, he learns and improves

That Soma failed is why this manga is still interesting

Failed? When did he fail? I didn't see any failure there.

Souma fucks up again. Overconfidence really sucks sometimes. Oh well since he's the never give up character it shouldn't matter much.

has nothing to do with overconfidence. he just never worked at a french restaurant before.

of course he'd make mistakes, takes a while to adjust. nobody can be perfect on the first day.

unless they take the lead, like erina did. but souma knows he doesn't have enough experience to do that. so where's that overconfidence you're talking about?

That Soma failed is why this manga is still interesting

Pffft... Why have an interesting protagonists when you can have an author/reader self-insert Mary Sue instead?

 

Really, I still don't get why some people seems to get so butthurt over Soma's "failures" like the autumn election. We've known even back from the very first chapter that Soma's greatest strength is turning his "failures" into new weapons, and later chapters through the series has only reinforced this point over and over again.

Why do so many people say Souma failed in this chapter? He has simply experienced the difference is speed required in comparison to his special-of-the-day restaurant. If anything, that was a rather outstanding comeback on the last two pages. I do not believe he failed in this chapter, he simply didn't put it in the top gear right away due to not having experience of needing to do so.

At first, you must fail to succeed.

I don't know anybody in life or in history that has achieved success without ever failing. The greatest figures in sports, military, politics, science, the arts and every other field I can think of all have mentioned their numerous setbacks and failures driving them to succeed.

I do know lots of people that never really succeed because they never try. If they aren't handed the trappings of success they bitch and whine and complain, and then usually just go home. But if you're going to earn your place, you're going to fail, and it's how you deal with that failure and learn from it that paves the path to success.

What about Rocky Marciano?

He achieved success by failing and trying again though (just like every other shounen protagonist), so it's natural he's used to failure by his father.

Now THIS is an MC >:)

Of course he would f*** up, he didn't have his bandanna.
 

Btw. in the time the abel guy spoke to souma he could have already fixed the mistake.

This chapter did a lot right by being more Bambino than Yakitate Japan. As far as I can tell, this is the first time that Souma has been entirely in over his head. Since the manga has emphasized that Souma's greatest strength is his ability to calmly respond to failure, it's a little odd that he's so often portrayed as a wunderkind.

He achieved success by failing and trying again though (just like every other shounen protagonist), so it's natural he's used to failure by his father.

He has a good attitude. Realistically, nobody, especially a mere student, can walk into a professional establishment with veterans and just do everything smoothly right away. Actually, not even 20 year veterans can walk into a new restaurant and work as part of a team for a head chef that they've never worked for and with flawlessly. And even when they have worked with each other in the past, problems still arise.

 

And yet, Erina can walk in and have an entire kitchen under her command instantly. Oh well, whatever.

actually erina did not walk in a new restaurant and work as a part of the team. She destroyed that team and made one with herself as the head.

 

She doesn't work with the team, the team works for her.

Their serious faces looks so attractive lol.

Nice chapter, but... why don't they wear hairnets (or anything to keep their hair from getting in the food)? manga logic I guess

 

Hair in manga doesn't come in strands, it's just one solid existence with the illusion of strands in some cases, and it will never shed.  It becomes a problem with hair-cutting scenes, they need to make sure the camera never shows any actual cutting, or to cut of one large clump, and throw actual hair around to make it look like normal hair being cut while they simply remold their "hair."
