Weekly Manga Review: Shokugeki no Souma chapter 272Ken Otaku
Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) chapter 272. Read at your own risk.
The chapter starts by showing us that the Elite Ten are still on missions to look for the “noir” chefs that are scattered around. Erina is very troubled by these chefs and also about the this “Saiba” they found out about earlier (read chapter 271 or our post about it if you forgot who this is).
Putting that issue aside, Erina tells Souma and Megumi that the school is getting new lecturers, including both alumni and outsiders. One lecturer that caught everyone’s harts from the start is a handsome young man that calls himself Suzuki.
Souma and Megumi end up checking his class and when Suzuki heard about who these two are he invited them to eat together. They snack together and chat and things seem normal and relaxing. Suzuki seems to have a pretty happy-go-lucky personality and is very friendly with the other two.
As the conversation goes on, Suzuki seems to be more mysterious. He gives Souma an advice that he got before from his own father. After that, Souma tells Megumi that he feels like this isn’t the first time that he met Suzuki.
Suzuki shows his other side, pulls out a knife and suddenly challenges Souma to a shokugeki.
How will Souma reply to this? If he accepts, what will the outcome be? We will have to wait until next week to find out.
