Weekly Manga Review: Shokugeki no Souma chapter 273

Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) chapter 273. Read at your own risk.

This chapter continues from Suzuki’s proposal to Souma to have a shokugeki. Souma seems unwilling to jump into it and Megumi backs him up by saying that a shokugeki can be only between students, not students and teachers. Suzuki complies to this and says just a normal match it fine in order to reach his “ambitions”.

Meanwhile, Chef Doujima makes an unexpected visit to Erina. He tells Erina he has an important message for Souma regarding the so-called “Saiba”.

We find out that Saiba isn’t Jouichirou’s actual son, but some boy he met in America whom he treated as if he was his own son and took as a disciple. Now that’s something that sounds more like him; having some illegitimate son that he abandoned isn’t something Jouichirou would do. Doujima informs Erina that this Saiba is planning to defeat Souma, Jouichirou’s real son, in a battle. Hearing this, Erina rushes to warn Souma about this.

Back to Souma and Suzuki’s side: the conversation becomes heated. Suzuki tells Souma that if he beats the first seat it will be a part of his ambition, and another part would be finding a woman that he can offer all his cooking to. He even has a candidate for this position: none other than our beloved Erina Nakiri. He says he plans to become the ultimate man and take the ultimate woman, Erina, as his wife!

Souma gets fed up with his talk and tells him to get in line because he will get Erina and her God Tongue. Well, just as he said that Erina walked into the room and is left in a state of confusion. Imagine hearing your crush say that about you, this is the perfect reaction:

Souma won’t let Erina fall into the hands of such a guy, so he accepts Suzuki’s challenge. How will the fight go? Who will win? Will Suzuki’s ambition prevail Souma’s? Will Souma be able to protect Erina through his cooking? We will find the answers to all of these questions in the next chapters, so stay tuned!
