Ah, so the strange combinations were a result of Saiba not knowing where to advance from there, that's interesting.
at a glance it seems Saiba hits a wall, just like Shinomiya. and then he go away from the academy to try to find something to surpass his wall (and probably traveling the world and meeting Souma's mother level him up). but if it's only that far, why is he still doing his strange dishes even now? (if there's more reason then for gag and comedy)
but i guess we haven't see all of it yet. we still haven't see why he's called the asura back then
wow, joichirou hit his stagnation earlier than shinomiya did! what talent! when will souma stumble?!
This was an okay chapter. Not really anything exciting. Interested to see where this flashback heads to next. Obviously, we will find out more about his road block, and how he overcame it (or if he overcame it ). What I'm really hoping for is to see Souma's mother *^*.
Every chapter where Saiba is GOATING has a perfect score from me.
"It's hard to beat a person who never gives up."
Really liked the chapter. I don't think Saiba actually hit a wall but instead he decided to go against his instinct to surpass himself. Totsuki won't be able to satisfy his curiosity so he will leave.
Interesting chapter, I haven't been intrigued in a long while and I didn't expect myself to be this interested in Jou's past.
Azami with that dark aura but face of a puppy
perhaps but I think it's more that he lacks a vision. He seems to live day to day or rather, dish to dish trying to find spontaneous inspiration rather than having a concrete goal or something.
I think meeting his future wife would change that, as he did tell Souma to find a girl that would be head over heels for his food and going back to Hayama, someone to cook for and drive you.
