    Glad they didn't throw a cliffhanger on who won, since it was already obvious.

    As expected

    Thank God there's no dragging the chapter further unnecessarily.


    also, we only need 1 chapter to showcase Megishima's dish and completely skip his opponent since it's already too obvious of a win anyway

    The win was as expected. Is it just me or am I getting kinda bored with these series nowadays. It seems quite a while since I have been genuinely hyped for a match.

    No, seriously. Are they in an actual cage or not?

    i think this series is for sure gonna end after this arc, it is simply going nowhere and all the set-up for a final showdown is really obvious. isshiki and souma are already too far ahead of the curve to lose against anything but the top 2 students period without it being blatantly forced. there won't ever be an antagonistic faction on the level of central, it makes no reason to prolong the series after souma inevitably wins against eishi

    the matches really only serve as devices for the artist to draw his fanservice and those panels which portray the chefs in a very eccentric way (eg. in this chapter http://img.readms.net/cdn/manga/112/4291/14.png). what qualities SnS had went down the gutter very rapidly after the autumn election arc. there's too many characters that simply serve no actual purpose (rindou is a prime example) and the rest are just fodder to move the plot forward (most probably all new '''elite''' ten additions), there's so much forced dramatization that all sort of suspense is eliminated completely because the odds were so stacked against the protagonists that they just had to win in spite of them.

    all of souma's rivals have been dealt with conveniently already (takumi is the only one that is still somewhat relevant, but his recent portrayal is just to resurrect the rivalry between him and souma for fan service or w/e), and only eishi remains in his path. the series spent the entire first half reinforcing time and time again how the elite ten are absolute monsters and are not to be taken lightly, now souma and eisshi make the lower ranked ones look like absolute scrubs.

    all seemingly new stuff is only surface-level. this was initially supposed to be a team battle, it turned out to be three separate 1v1 matches. i don't think the series can ever recover from the recent 50 chapters or so because they all emphasize that the core writing in SnS is just very suspect.

    Pleasantly surprised they got this battle over with this chapter.

    Feel like it might've been better if this and Megi's matches happened first; get the predictable ones out the way and build more suspense for Souma vs Nene.

    I hope either eishi,rindou,or Momo absolute destroy isshiki and just crushed his spirit right infront of the rebels.

    Agreed

    Glad that the match was concluded, but we really need to see Central as a threat again without Eishi and Rindou.

    solid chapter, better than what the spoilers suggested but the foodgasm was terrible.

    pretty sure it's decided now with Isshiki's win, since 2 consecutive victories means a win for the round. Unless the other new elite ten is a total badass, Megi and Isshiki killing the first two matches means Souma probably doesn't even need to face Nene for the round. I think that's how the rules stated it would be.

    People won't like it one bit but it would be a nice development.

    dunno if the match will be shown but I'd like for him to lose since the rebels look way too unstoppable right now.

    I agree something big needs to happen to slow down the rebel's momentum.
