Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Soma Yukihira's dream is to surpass his father Joichiro's culinary skills and become a full-time chef at their family restaurant Yukihira. However, just as he graduates from middle school, Joichiro decides to close shop to work in New York City as a favor for a friend, sending his son to Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute, an elite academy notorious for having 1% graduation rate.Upon arrival at Totsuki, he immediately runs afoul of Erina Nakiri, the proud and notoriously picky granddaughter of dean Senzaemon, who scorns his "commoner" food and brash impudence, even as his undeniable talent aggravates her to no end. And as if that wasn't enough, during his admission speech, Soma makes the seemingly foolhardy vow of using his fellow 92nd Generation freshmen as stepping stones to glory, making him a virtually marked man.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })It's a long way to the top, but Soma is determined to beat his dad, elicit Erina's words of approval, and prove to his batch-mates that he really means his words.Food Wars!, known as Shokugeki no Soma in Japan, is a 2012 cooking manga written by Yuuto Tsukuda (in collaboration with Yuki Morisaki, a chef who comes up with the series' recipes), and illustrated by Shun Saeki. The series makes liberal use of Ecchi and a variety of other visual metaphors to make preparing food, cooking food, tasting food, and merely talking about food intense enough to make you think you're reading a shonen battle manga. Not to mention that the food itself looks gorgeously mouth-watering.The series was serialized in both the Japanese and English versions of Weekly Shonen Jump, and Viz Media released it in North America under the title Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma. After seven years, the series ended in June, 2019 at 315 chapters.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })A TV anime adaptation by JC Staff started airing in April 2015 as part of the Spring 2015 season and ended its run in September 2015, right after the end of the Fall Classic preliminaries. The second season, Ni no Sara ("The Second Dish"), began airing in July 2016. The third season, titled San no Sara ("The Third Dish"), began airing in October 2017. A fourth season, Shin no Sara ("The Fourth Dish") aired in October 2019 to December 2019. The fifth and final season, Go no Sara ("The Fifth Dish") began airing on April 2020.In 2017, it was revealed that Sentai Filmworks will produce the English dub. The entire first season was released in August. As of July 2019, the dub has joined the Toonami block.Spin Offs include: Shokugeki no Soma ~à la carte~ (2014-2016): A series of light novels featuring different characters as the focal point of each chapter. Shokugeki no Soma — Etoile (2015-2019): A manga written by Michiko Itou and illustrated by Taiki Asatoki, detailing the struggles of Totsuki alumnus Koujirou Shinomiya (who first appears in the main series as a judge during the freshmen's summer training camp) to survive in the French culinary world and its drastic effects to both his career and personality. Tōtsuki Academy Challenge Plate: Shokugeki no Soma Official Recipe Book (2015): A Spin-Off Cookbook. Shokugeki no Soma ~Fratelli Aldini~ (2015): A light novel that focuses on the Aldini Twins. Shokugeki no Soma ~Le dessert~ (2019): A three-chapter follow up title released a year after the end of the main series that serves as the epilogue. This title ran in Jump+.Video Games include: Shokugeki no Soma: The Dish of Friendship and Bonds (2015): A Visual Novel developed by FuRyu and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for the Nintendo 3DS. Shokugeki no Soma: The Ultimate Recipe (2017): A mobile game published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.Compare with Toriko, another Shonen Jump series about Food Porn, and Yakitate!! Japan, a series with similar themes, except with impossibly delicious bread.Please move any character tropes to the Food Wars! character page.

comment
Everyone Has a Special Move: Aside from Soma, whose specialty is learning from experimenting, other students have a special forte, ranging from smoked dishes, poultry, using their own produce, molecular cuisine, spices, Chinese culinary techniques, and so on. However, these are considered the mere starting line for developing a true specialty, something that shows someone is truly becoming a master cook.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: The way food preparation is treated and depicted often resembles a fighting manga more than anything to do with cooking. We're obviously supposed to think Hisako is a cold-blooded badass for decapitating a live turtle in front of an audience. The reactions to the good food people make are often sexual to the point it could be mistaken for porn, even with just the dialogue. For example, Ryou makes people beg for more of his food while they blush and tremble in anticipation. Other times, it’s portrayed as more of a fight, such as a dish having so much impact it’s like being punched in the stomach.

The Worf Effect
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_178ca149
comment
The Worf Effect: While this trope is rather common in a shounen series, it's become much more pronounced in the later chapters, especially in the post-Central arcs. In particular, Asahi comes out of nowhere and defeats Joichiro in a shokugeki in a complete blowout off panel. Then, during the BLUE tournament, he effortlessly defeats Eishi in a single chapter.

comment
Defeat Means Friendship: Soma makes friends with Ikumi after beating her in a shokugeki, with her taking a Be Yourself message from the whole thing. They start hanging out together with her in particular crushing on him. After Soma defeats Subaru, he encourages him not to give up on cooking and change his dishonest ways. Subaru takes this heart and later helps Soma and Megumi with their booth in the Fall Banquet against Kuga. He winds up turning this Up to Eleven when he returns to support the Rebels in the Regiment de Cuisine. Kuga himself even sides with Soma later on, after being ousted from the Council of Ten following Azami's takeover. He and his Chinese RS underlings proceed to help Soma in taking on Akira again, as well as personally participating in the Regiment de Cuisine on the side of the Rebels.

Always Someone Better
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_19d1c1ae
comment
Always Someone Better: Happens to Soma twice, given how he's confident in his ability to the point of arrogance. Erina is a better cook, but at first he only wants to beat her as a point of pride, not particularly recognizing her as anyone worthwhile. During training camp, he seems to be the first one done in an assignment, only to realize after cleaning up that Erina had finished long before him, causing him to stop in (brief) shock. During the Fall Classic, Akira is set up as the man to beat. When they get to the final, he wins because he'd already started to develop a specialty, forcing Soma to start playing catchup from that point forward during Stagiaire Month and subject himself to intense training under Koujirou. By the Red Leaf Hunt, Soma asks any of the Council of Ten Masters members for a Shokugeki, which the others flat out reject. The main reason is because the 2nd Years have it hard already with the 3rd years, who currently have the higher seats.

World of Badass
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_1a74b900
comment
World of Badass: Shokugeki no Soma may not be an action-based manga, but it manages to use Awesome Art and Mundane Made Awesome to make young chefs look incredibly badass while they're cooking. The students even possess Battle Auras, giving an atmosphere akin to Iron Chef. While most of the story takes place at Totsuki, the gifted students and professional teachers come from all over the world, and the alumni have established top-class restaurants abroad, playing this trope as straight as possible.

By the Moon Banquet Festival, Ryou and Akira's roles changed after Alice managed to take over the Shiomi Seminar booth, with her as The McCoy (impulsive and outgoing), Akira as The Kirk (the rational guy who is trying to deal with his frustration) and Ryou as The Spock (since he is without his bandana during the arc, he sees the situation neutrally without showing his real emotions)

Those Two Guys
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_1c79ae8c
comment
Those Two Guys: Daigo and Shoji, the two previously-unnamed characters from the Polaris Dormitory, always appear together and has very little characterization beyond their role as the dorm's crowd filler. So far, they are the only ones who have not been shown any specialty skill area, didn't make the Fall Classic, and, aside from quick shots of them in a kitchen to show they do actually cook, we've never seen any food they've made.

Reality Ensues
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: In the Shokugeki with Koujirou vs. Megumi, she finally showcases her talents as a chef by making a dish of her own and thoroughly impresses the judges. Unfortunately, she's still up against a legendary alumnus who used to be the First Seat of the Council of Ten Masters. As good as her dish was, his was still vastly superior. She only manages to avoid being expelled after Koujirou first votes against himself to net a tie and then allows her to stay because he recognizes her cooking is worthwhile, even if it's not how he does things. Alice's mother is introduced as an elegant and beautiful woman... who is a Scandinavian woman who rarely visits Japan and has rather poor Japanese as a result. Her VA reads her dialogue with a very noticeable accent. Even after Soma defeats Eizen and Isshiki enacts a number of rules to return the Shokugeki format to fair duels while ensuing that only impartial judges are used for the matches to prevent match tampering, the vast majority of Shokugeki from Central's side are conducted by the Council of Ten Masters or Azami's handpicked students, each of whom are said to have the potential to become a member of the Council. Consequently, most clubs end up losing their matches and are dissolved anyway. Only a tiny handful of students manage to successfully win their matches and all of those victories were only due to the fact that they didn't go up against a member of the Council of Ten Masters. The rebels manage to pass the first two stages of the Promotion Exams thanks to Erina's tutelage, causing Central to get desperate and pit them in Shokugeki against the Council of Ten for the third stage. While they are, by far, the most talented chefs of the 92nd Generation, the rebels are still first-years going against the most talented chefs in the entire school. Predictably, most of them lost. The only rebels to pass that stage were Soma (who faced Akira and barely managed to win — it helped that Soma had already defeated another member of the Council of Ten and was familiar with how Akira cooked), Takumi, Megumi (whose tester Rindou only had them each make a dish that would please her) and Erina (who took the regular exam because Azami still hoped to sway her back to his side).

Heterosexual Life-Partners
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_1dfbbf31
comment
Heterosexual Life-Partners: Daigo Aoki and Shoji Sato from the Polaris Dorms are always hanging out and bickering a lot, to the point they end up at the same Stagiaire assignment. Takumi and Isami Aldini, in addition of being twin brothers, are very close to each other. They only agreed to go to Totsuki if the other did as well, and they go everywhere together. In flashbacks it's seen that Gin Doujima and Joichiro were this as well during the Golden Age of the Polaris dorms. Both of them defended the dorms from raids and enemies and were in the top of the Council. After years apart and going their separate ways, Gin's first reaction when seeing Joichiro is to scold him for not keeping in touch, and after that they go for drinks together.

Dare to Be Badass: During the welcoming ceremonies for the 92nd Generation, Senzaemon encourages the students to aspire to be part of the 1% who will graduate from Totsuki. Before the Fall Classic preliminaries, judge Natsume Sendawara claims that despite the evolution of Japan's curry industry, the food still bores her, challenging the students to create something revolutionary. It turns out Soma's evolving cooking methods subtly encourage this. By refining his skills through trial and error, he shows that anyone can do what he does and make something amazing.

As he says this in voiceover, there is a close-up of a family picture for himself, his wife and his son. Said son doesn't hear this sage advice at the start of the story, due to hanging up too soon, but ends up doing so anyway one episode later by seeking to craft a dish that Erina will approve of.

When Soma and Megumi join Satoshi as substitutes for a children's cooking school, it initially seemed like a random breather amidst the action, except it actually raised two major plot points: the candies the kids give to Soma later gave him an idea for his dish against Alice, while Megumi starts to realize that she has fallen in love with Soma.

Club Stub: Soma's first Shokugeki at Totsuki was to save the Donburi RS from closure, which had Kanachi as the only member left. After losing, the club increased its budget and gained Ikumi as the new member. Eventually her presence attracted more new members and has been doing much better. The new arc centers around the Central organization (which includes most members of the Council of Ten) and the "Survivors Hunt", since all the Research Societies and Seminars have the opportunity to save their clubs in a Shokugeki.

During the Karaage mini-arc, Ikumi was Veronica because of her brash personality, her rich background and more voluptuous figure; in contrast to Mayumi's Betty as the shy, modest and more humble upbringing, paired with the fact that she knew Soma since pre-kinder. Soma, of course, was completely clueless about this.

Awesome, but Impractical
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_2bdae2ae
comment
Awesome, but Impractical Chapter 174 shows that Central's policies force students to learn through memorization, rather than applying their knowledge creatively. Even when they successfully cook the high-level dishes needed to pass the Promotion Exams, they don't understand the reasoning behind each step and are becoming nothing more than glorified assistants to Central's chosen without truly improving their own skills. The school itself is this, too. Any institution with a 10% graduation rate would fail, utterly, and be maligned as an incompetent fraud, not a superelite academy. As well, the premise of Soma going to said institution. His dad is allegedly an incredibly skilled chef, and is going to New York (which has a more than respectable food scene) to collaborate with an old colleague. It makes far more sense for Soma to accompany him and continue learning by working in the restaurant, especially given he's already quite skilled himself from that exact form of informal education. Alice's dishes are amazing and far more novel than anyone else's, but they take a long time to prepare, seem to have small portions, aren't actually superior in quality and, given the effort and resources involved, would cost far too much to be practical in any real restaurant. She's chided by Ryou for focusing too much on flash over substance and by Hayama for failing to consider that a business, unlike a vanity project, actually needs to turn a profit.

Sorting Algorithm of Evil
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_323f135b
comment
Sorting Algorithm of Evil: More precisely "Sorting Algorithm Of Challenge." For the most part, the kinds of challenges faced by Soma and the other main characters tend to gradually escalate in difficulty. Being at Totsuki doesn't just mean being a skilled chef but knowing how to manage a restaurant and keep up with the pressure in different situations. There are occasional curve-balls thrown, both in terms of stakes and challenge level: Soma and Megumi face a former first-seat alumni and famed chef fairly early in the series and subsequently lose. Sometimes the challenge level isn't as high but the stakes for losing are still high, i.e. when facing other students in a Shokugeki. Averted in the case of Soma's father Joichiro; he himself sets the bar for challenge at the beginning of the series and has yet to be surpassed. Joichiro even goes as far as saying that if Soma can't get through Totsuki, he has no chance of surpassing him.

Evolving Credits

Evolving Credits: The anime's OP and ED change slightly per episode. Kibou no Uta (first opening): The rotating dish. Spice (first ending): The principal foodgasm character of the episode. Rising Rainbow (second opening): Megumi's vegetables. Sacchan no Sexy Curry (second ending): The ending starts changing after the third version. Before that point, the vocal performance wasn't as polished. The first change happens in Episode 16, where Joichiro walks with Soma. In Episode 17, as Mayumi runs along Ikumi. In Episode 18, Eizan runs alongside Isshiki. Then in Episode 19 Jun appears with Akira. And in Episode 20 Isami's character design changes to his thin version. Then the Episode 21 version has Urara running alongside Ikumi, as well as Nao and her soup turning white to reflect her "purification" by Hisako.

Hollywood Law: While the absurdity of the Council of Ten Masters voting Azami into power as dean can be Hand Waved by them being an Absurdly Powerful Student Council, the fact this action somehow grants the abusive Azami parental rights over Erina should be impossible. In Real Life, without the presence of a court order, in addition to Azami's personal history, it would be very unlikely. A bunch of teenagers do not have the power to decide such privileges.

Five-Second Foreshadowing: During the 43rd Autumn Election preliminaries, the judges have an Imagine Spot of Akira and Soma fighting for the top spot of their block. Akira's dish is compared to a piercing spear and Soma's to series of boxing punches. It is a simple truth of close combat that the fighter with the longer reach has the advantage. Akira edges out Soma by a single point. During a party to celebrate Soma winning his shokugeki against Eizan, someone knocks on the front door of the dorm. Soma goes to get it, remarking to himself that the last time someone was at the door unannounced in the middle of the night, it was "the former dean" Senzaemon. Soma opens to the door to find current dean Azami.

Erina's is even a major plot point of her Character Development; she was raised by Azami to refuse to eat any food that was not literally perfect. In her early years, she is shown to want to finish a dish even if it lacks perfection, but that was slowly crushed to the point that she would only take one bite and then throw the food in the trash if any imperfection whatsoever was found.

The Proud Elite
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_3b49c783
comment
The Proud Elite: Many of the students have this mentality, since they think that being enrolled at Totsuki and coming from wealthy families make them superior to others from more humble origins, this being one of the reasons they look down on Soma. Most of the Council of Ten share this mindset, looking down on those students who are not part of the Elite — Erina berates Soma, or any dish below her standards, because of this (which is mostly because of her own father brainwashing her) — and the rest declare themselves head and shoulders above the rest of the school, with Momo even referring to her opponents as "lowlifes". After Azami's takeover and the creation of Central, the new members also start to humiliate the other students now not part of the selection.

It's mentioned that in the history of the Nakiri family, ''every' God Tongue possessor had died in agony.

Secret Test of Character: Besides serving as on-the-job training, Senzaemon reveals a hidden purpose of Stagiaire Month: Character Development. Not only are students expected to perform well under pressure, they are also encouraged to both "leave a mark" on their assigned restaurants (that is, encourage changes that last beyond their tenure) and nurture their mental and emotional strength. And as seen in various cutaways, the 500 or so survivors of the training camp got whittled down ever further when faced with the realities of the outside world.

They mostly hang around in swimsuits for the rest of the day and talking about love briefly. Neither has any experience, but Alice successfully pretends to be an expert and mocks Erina for considering love beneath her.

comment
Family Business: Most of Totsuki's students come from family-run restaurants with the intent of raising their prestige or preserving their traditions, and those who don't were at least involved in the food industry. The Nakiris are the most prominent example, with Senzaemon as dean of Totsuki, his son Soe as head of the R&D branch, Soe's wife Leonora as head of their Danish branch, and Senzaemon's grand-daughters Erina and Alice as consultants and molecular gastronomy researchers, respectively. Soma has managed Yukihira's along with his father, presumably also with his mother, since the restaurant is named with her family name. Megumi learned how to handle goosefish to help her family inn, while her mother encouraged her to attend Totsuki. Ryoko is said to have come from a famous shiokouji shop. Soma also concluded from their first cooking match that Satoshi may have come from a Japanese restaurant, given the techniques he applied on his dish. He neither confirms nor denies this guess initially. In issue 214, he is confirmed to be the heir to an inn which dates back to the 17th century, and is considered to be the one true preserve of East Japanese cuisine Takumi and Isami carried Trattoria Aldini along with their father and uncle. Ikumi, one of the few exceptions to the restaurant heirs, comes from the Mito Company, the largest meat distribuitor across Japan. Hisako Arato has also done it, albeit in a roundabout way. Her family has been in service to the Nakiris for generations, and she has followed in their footsteps as Erina's right hand, but rather than become a doctor like her ancestors, she chose to become a chef to integrate modern nutritional science and traditional medicine into gourmet cooking.

The Stinger: The anime version has them after the ending credits. In the 1st Chapter/Episode, Erina is introduced having her Establishing Character Moment. She is grading some students on their dishes, and gives them horrible reviews. During Episode 2, Erina's grandfather, the chairman of the cooking school, tastes some of Soma's food after she claims it's not good enough to pass. Due to his higher position at the school, he overrides her decision not to let him enter the school, which shocks her quite a bit when she sees him there in the next episode. At the end of Episode 3, Erina is told about Soma passing a really tough course with a teacher who's normally very strict with grades. She vows to get him expelled one way or another. In Episode 4, Soma runs into one of the Council of Ten Masters, Satoshi Isshiki, and tries out one of his dishes. Episode 5 introduces Soma's first major opponent at the school, Ikumi Mito. And in episode 6, she discusses her strategy of using high grade A5 beef to defeat whatever garbage he cooks up. At the end of episode 7, Ikumi, having been soundly defeated by Soma in the Shokugeki contest, goes to the Don RS club room she had to join as a condition for losing. She acts very girly, and is hoping to meet him in the room, only to find Kanachi in there. He explains that Soma declined to join the club, lowering her chances of seeing him. After the credits for episode 12, Soma returns to Zenji's room where the rest of his dorm mates were wondering what happened to him and Megumi. They then decide to start playing a card game, prompting Zenji to once again ask why they're always in his room. During the cooking event in episode 13, Erina finishes her 200 servings of breakfast food rather easily. However, Soma has served less than 10 dishes by this point, and was stationed right next to her...

Wham Shot: Done twice, and with the same plot device no less. Also mixed with Chekhov's Gun. In Chapter 34, the final page revealed Soma's Dad Joichiro was a former Council of Ten, the second seat. Fast forward 100 chapters later and the same picture is shown again, except with the 3rd seat under him, Azami Nakamura aka Azami Nakiri and Erina's father. At the end of Chapter 178, Rindou reveals to Soma and the rest of the "rebels" that their next exam will be a match against a member of the Council of Ten. In the following chapter, just as Soma is wondering who they'll be facing, their opponent reveals himself; the next thing we see is Akira Hayama, wearing a Central badge. Not half a dozen pages after the Wham Line revelation above, it's revealed that Jōichirō was in a Shokugeki with Saiba at that very moment...and Jōichirō, the most legendarily Supreme Chef to grace the pages of this manga, LOST TO SAIBA 5-0.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: In the first chapter, artist Saeki covered Minagesaki and her men's bodies entirely with screentone when they have their "foodgasms". He never does this again for any "foodgasm". Joichiro told Soma that only 10% can graduate from Totsuki. Three chapters later, Senzaemon Nakiri tells the students that only 1% of them will graduate. This might be justified, considering that there is a 22-year gap between father and son's tenure in Totsuki. Either there weren't so many students in Joichiro's generation who entered tenth-grade or the standards of Totsuki have become so high that even more students will be expelled than before. In the first few chapters, Soma is somewhat more rude and oblivious. Before too much longer the series began emphasizing his quick wits and sense of fair play. However, he'll still respond to trash talk with taunts of his own. During the first few chapters, Erina gently holds up Hisako's face while chiding her for being a "shameless hussy" (in regards to wanting Erina's food) and is full of lesbian overtones. However, this was dialed back immensely for every following appearance in favor of emphasizing that Hisako is her only friend. During Soma's welcoming party, Isshiki mentioned that people gathered only made up half of Polaris's population. Later chapter clearly showed that they are the only one there. An early chapter claimed Alice was from a Nakiri family branch instead of the main house like Erina. Later it's shown that Alice's father is Sanzaemon's biological son while Erina's mother is his daughter. Going by Eastern tradition, Alice and Erina are both "Main" and Alice is even higher in the succession line than Erina. This picture◊ draw focus on a number of first-years with distinctive design as if they are all Chekhov's Gunman. They are most likely early design for recurring characters, from Right to Left: First panel's characters resembled Alice and Kurokiba. However final design for Kurokiba do not include nose band aid or yin-yang necklace. Alice's hairstyle is also different and the impression that she's the silent one is completely wrong. The three girls in the second panels are similar to Inui (close-eye smiler), Nene (glasses) and Momo (holding stuffed bear). However none of them are first year. Third panels are clearly the Aldini brothers with little differences in the eyes. The girls in the front of the fourth panels look like Yuuki, however the abacus is an oddity. The girl behind her with the Lolita hair has yet to appear.

Soma's mother is confirmed to have died, but Erina's mother is alive, distant and seriously ill.

The Power of Love
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_6a696742
comment
The Power of Love: Played with. In the first few chapters, Joichiro muses that Soma doesn’t yet understand that the true secret to great cooking is to want to cook for a special someone, with the image shown being Soma’s mother. Before Soma is even officially enrolled, he already wants to cook something Erina will admit is good. Not quite what his father had in mind, no doubt, since he just considers her a goal to surpass. As disparate characters as Jouchirou Yukihira, Megumi Tadokoro, Hayama Akira and, to a lesser extent the Aldini brothers, Hisako Arato and Kojirou Shinomiya, are all driven by deep romantic or familial love in their cooking, and all of them are completely awesome.

Serious Business
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_6b35bdff
comment
Serious Business: Very much averted regarding cooking, apart from Totsuki's impossible level of wealth. One, cooking is a very niche pursuit that normal people don't really follow or appreciate that much, which angers some of the more elitist cooks. Two, while the main characters do take it very seriously, that's only natural given that they're cooks themselves. Three, Soma points out that even if he were banned from cooking, it wouldn't be the end of the world. Fourth, characters who value cooking over other people like Tsukasa and Azami are shown to have something very wrong with them with even Hayama prioritizing Shiomi's seminar over her wishes for his safety as being probably the stupidest thing he's ever done. Fifth and finally, those who focus too much on cooking and don't take time off to relax or pursue other hobbies are generally considered to be unhealthy and poorly adjusted. Played for laughs in the lead up to the Fall Classic. Megumi and the dorm in general get way too serious about table tennis with the narration reminding the reader that this is a cooking manga despite the serious atmosphere and specialist terminology flying around. Played very straight with the judging of Shokugeki. It seems to be an unbroken law that the judges must give fair assessment of a dish if they taste it. This is best shown in the Soma-Eizan Shokugeki, in which Soma built his entire offense on the judges's adherence to this trope. For that matter, Shokugeki itself, there is a whole commitee that oversees, supports and if need be, enforces its results. And what can be bet in Shokugeki is rather astounding and outrageous (land, money, restraining order, positions, etc).

Supreme Chef: Everyone who goes to Totsuki actually has a good career in cooking ahead of them even if they end up dropping out or expelled just from the sheer prestige of the school. The actual graduates usually start their own wildly successful restaurants within just a few years. Of course, even as good as the students seem in the present, some are much better than others, such as Erina. Right now, at least, even she probably couldn't hope to compete with the actual adults who have already graduated as the first or second seats.

Meaningful Echo: Remember the "Sacrificial Stones" speech Senzaemon gives the rest of the student body? When Azami finally comes into the picture, he tells the student body the exact opposite when he gives his speech. Bonus points for the fact that both scenes are structured exactly the same.◊ Eizan's defeat by Takumi in Chapter 237 is portrayed like Takumi's manipulation by Mimasaka. Makes it more meaningful because Eizan was the reason Mimasaka even fought Takumi in the first place. At the start of the story, Soma tells Erina she might not be as good a chef as she thinks if she wastes her time like a queen sitting pretty on her throne. Come the Regiment de Cuisine, Erina delivers similar words to Momo Akanegakubo when they face each other.

Meaningful Name: Totsuki has the kanji of "Moon" in its name. The Dorm is named "Polaris", which is the Guide Star and one of the brightest. After Soma joins the dorm, Fumio thinks to herself how the stars gather around the Moon. Also the Theme Naming of Totsuki comes to play as the Finale of the Fall Classic is staged under the light of the Full Moon. The 92nd Generation is given the epitaph of "Jewel Generation" due to the sheer number of talented individuals in that year. As shown below in Overshadowed by Awesome, their generation has had the most people score above 80 during the Autumn Elections. However, notice that it says "Jewel", not "Jewels"; Senzaemon's intention was to make at least one crazy good chef in the hopes that they will dissolve the problems with his granddaughter.

Casting Gag: Doubling as Actor Allusion, Leonora Nakiri is voiced by Sayaka Ohara, who previously portrayed a similar-looking (tall, pale, long silver hair, red eyes) Irisviel von Einzbern in Fate/Zero. This isn't the first time Hisako Kanemoto nor Stephanie Wittels has voiced a member of an Absurdly Powerful Student Council, except in the last time, they played a clumsy student council president. Furthermore, this is yet another in the long list of blonde-haired female characters Kanemoto has voiced. In the English dub of the Third Plate, Azami Nakiri is voiced by Ian Sinclair who played Whis the English dub of Dragon Ball Super—who, while not being truly antagonistic, was certainly portrayed as quite the foodie.

Real Men Cook: Most of the adult male cooks are portrayed as extremely attractive in one way or another, as are all the best male students. They're also usually the best students in their year and have the best careers. On the other hand, the story acknowledges that it's not a coincidence that most of the top chefs are men: Women face a lot of discrimination in this field and struggle to be recognized as equals.

Villain Has a Point: Under Azami's administration, every student can prepare a gourmet-level dish to an exacting standard set up by him. Considering Totsuki is supposed to be a school, there are those who think Azami's method is how it should have been done, rather than having a tremendous amount of dropout rate under Sonzaemon. When going against Takumi in the Shokugeki, Subaru pointedly tells the judges that, despite how he acquired the knowledge to beat his opponent, or that he's making the same dish they do/would only one step better, non of that matters as, as judges, their only job is to say which is the better meal put in front of them, not to admonish what he does to win.

Cheaters Never Prosper
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_72d30083
comment
Cheaters Never Prosper: In the tenth-graders' first cooking test, two students, miffed at Soma's entrance speech, try to sabotage his and Megumi's boeuf bourguignon by adding extra salt. However, Soma not only passes through improvisation, but is complimented by their notoriously strict professor. The saboteurs wind up gawking for so long they neglect their own dish and leave it cooking too long, in the process accidentally spilling salt on it in panic, earning them an "E" for their trouble. When all the clubs and research societies in the academy are given the chance to save themselves from being disbanded by way of Shokugekis, only for Eizan to bring in a trio of judges that he has bribed to always judge in his favor without even trying the food. Soma still challenges Eizan to a Shokugeki, and by using his creativity, never losing his cool and having complete faith in that his Polar Star friends could take care of themselves after Eizan sent his goons to kick them out, Soma goads Eizan and the judges into trying his dish and completely destroys the unprepared 9th Seat, humiliating him and paving the way for the scheme of fixing the judges to be done away with. The whole Promotion Exam in Hokkaido seems to be fixed to purge as many rebels as possible. The exams, organized by Central professors, have so far been sabotaged by messing with the ingredients. Fortunately all of them managed to pass thanks to previous knowledge and Erina's intensive training — it helps that the rebels in question are the most talented chefs of the 92nd Generation. Central eventually had to resort to modifying their exams entirely and forcing them into Shokugeki against members of the Council of Ten. While the rebels are the most talented chefs of their generation, they're still first-years against the best chefs in the school, so most of them lost.

Naked First Impression: Not exactly first, given that they were already paired in their first homeroom assignment, but Soma and Megumi's first meeting in the Polaris Dormitory still counts, as the former walks in on the latter in the bath, both in the nude.

In Chapter 80, Mimasaka Subaru reveals that he and Soma will be facing each other in the next round of the Fall Classic. He attempts to bet Takumi's mezzaluna against Soma's cooking knife. Soma not only agrees, he takes it a step further, betting his cooking career against all 100 tools Mimasaka has stolen. And then he tells Mimasaka what he's going to make.

Arc Words
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_7464705c
comment
Arc Words: At the end of Chapter 1, Soma cuts the phone call before his father states, "The secret to becoming a good chef is meeting a woman that will make you want to give all the food you make to her". This idea returns after the Fall Classic preliminaries, when Megumi tells a group of children (and Soma) during a cooking lesson, "Just make it while thinking of a person important to you". This is a point where her affections for Soma are beginning to bud. In a subtle nod, it is heavily implied Akira won the Fall Classic because he found Jun to be the woman to whom he will dedicate his cooking. This also ends up being instrumental to Soma beating Hayama in their rematch. With Soma being driven to make Hayama say his food is delicious, he pushed himself hard, while Hayama disregarded Jun's wishes and wound up no longer having her around to cook for, losing his drive in the process. The original line comes up again when Asahi passes it on to Soma and Megumi. However, Asahi himself completely misinterpreted the advice and believes that it means he needs to marry Erina and use her God Tongue rather than find someone he actually wants to cook for. Another example of Soma's "This is my castle, where I will refine my skills". He first used the phrase referring to his home at Yukihira's. Soma says it again during his Shokugeki against Eizan, but this time referring to Polaris as his new home. This shows his own Character Development, as he started in a very small range of view limited to his restaurant, to eventually accept his new place at Totsuki. Soma echoes his father's words when describing cooking as, "The journey's no fun if you know where you're going." This is the fundamental idea behind the heroes' conflict against Azami's beliefs.

Furo Scene: Megumi found out right in the middle of her bath that Soma is now living in her dorm, leading to their Naked First Impression moment. One of Erina's Imagine Spots has her in a hotspring with a gorilla (which meant the soup she was tasting wasn't good). Soma and Gin met in Totsuki Resort's spa while the other students weren't done with the assignment. In a brief shot, Koujirou had to decline the spot as guest judge for the Fall Classic over the phone. This conversation was happening right in the middle of Gin's bath time.

Who Would Be Stupid Enough?: After Soma declares a duel against Council of Ten Masters Terunori Kuga, he only then learns that he will be expelled if his stand loses money. Kanachi explains that, while true, it would be virtually impossible to go broke from such a stand, because all of them have been trained in middle school to manage costs... Unless someone did a stupid thing like getting a booth right next to a Council of Ten Masters member.

Multiple Demographic Appeal: There are multiple scenes where they show off partially naked characters, mainly female. However, this manga is also full of naked or half-naked men. Senzaemon, Gin and Satoshi each accrue more panels of nudity than most of the female cast put together. And unlike their female counterparts, most of their nudity is not Imagine Spots.

The Council of Ten Masters members themselves are a very distinct group, each one with a specific cooking style and forte — from the 2nd Years: Isshiki as the Perpetual Smiler and The Face of the Council of Ten Masters, Eizan as the cold and calculative strategist who specializes in marketing and consulting, Kuga is short and boisterous and leads the Chinese Cooking RS, and Nene as the Aloof Dark-Haired Girl Meganekko. And then we have the 3rd Years: Soumei, the "samurai" with the Cool Sword; Momo, who looks like a middle schooler and is socially awkward; Tosuke, The Big Guy; Rindou, the girl with the Cat Smile; and Eishi, handsome The Leader with a fragile personality.

comment
I Reject Your Reality: A running theme: The entire school looked down on Soma's cooking because he came from humble roots. Despite repeatedly winning Shokugeki using this style, they can't bring themselves to accept his talent because accepting him means admitting they don't put in much effort. This is the ideology of Central spearheaded by Azami, only their cooking is True Gourmet, the rest are trash. Even after Central Sodier repeatedly lost to Soma and co who favored the unconventional style, this attitude remains unchanged. The most egregious example is Eizan and his Judges who adamantly opposed Soma's cooking even after Rindou and Eizan himself admitted the taste.

The Faceless: Soma's mother in the family picture is hidden behind a light reflection on it. The first members revealed from the Council of Ten Masters are Erina, Satoshi and Etsuya. The others have been seen, but only briefly and mostly shadowed over. The entire Council is finally revealed in Chapter 118 for the Red Leaf Hunt event, as they have to meet the Fall Classic eight finalists, with Erina among them. Alice's father appeared twice in Alice's, and later Leonora's, flashbacks. Both times, his face was obscured by something or someone else. He finally shows up as a judge in Chapter 185. Takumi and Isami's father is obscured whenever he is talking to his brother. The twins get the suggestion of going to Totsuki from their uncle instead.

Tall Poppy Syndrome: As Satoshi tells Etsuya during the Fall Classic finals, the students want Soma to fail not just because of his boastful introduction, but also because he obviously doesn't have the natural talent of someone like Alice or the intellect of someone like Subaru. If they were to acknowledge his ability, it would mean admitting that their own failures are simply because they do not work hard enough. Nevertheless, the way Isshiki sees it, it's starting to change, more so after Soma forces Subaru by Shokugeki stipulation to return the knives he took from his past opponents after beating him.

The Social Darwinist
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_8573ac0a
comment
The Social Darwinist: Totsuki is a downplayed and somewhat justified example because they want to produce the best graduates possible. Students can use cooking duels to settle disputes, and the harsh curriculum requires everyone to constantly and quickly improve their skills to avoid expulsion. Plus the best chefs in the school, the Council of Ten, are given a lot of political power and responsibilities. This is also combined with Stern Teacher, since most of the staff is fair to those with different backgrounds and cooking methods as long as they perform well. This also has a Decon-Recon Switch with Megumi, who suffers more under this system due to being a late bloomer, but arguably Took a Level in Badass because of this very system combined with support from her friends. Played with concerning Central. They got into power through Totsuki's social darwinist policies (via the Council of Ten) and they claim they want to give all students a "fairer" chance of graduating. However, their policies tend to favor people who are affiliated with Central and use their approved cooking methods while obstructing non-Central students who can perform on par with or better than their chosen elites. Their teaching policies are also neutering the potential of non-chosen students, who are forced to imitate their teachers rather than innovate. This gets another deconstruction when the pressure and expectations to succeed causes Joichiro to drop out, especially when everyone has attributed his success to his talent alone rather than his hard work.

Denser and Wackier: After the Azami arc, the story started making less effort to come across as realistic and introduced evil chefs with very weird outfits who use highly customized and eccentric kitchen gear for their cooking (such as a kitchen-chainsaw knife at the size of a machete, spherical "juggling pots", a portable blood-storage device and a one-hand guillotine among others...). The change is represented by how the cast started talking about chefs who have a "superhuman ability" rather than simply a unique talent or skill.

Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Come the later chapters, there are three groups: The residents at the Polaris Dorm have a distinctive characteristic, forte or habit: Soma comes from a special-of-the-day restaurant and is currently the eye of the storm at the school; Megumi is the shy girl who used to have the worst grades at school; Satoshi is the only member of the Council of Ten Masters and he spends most of the time naked around the dorms; Shun is the stoic one who specializes on smoked food; Ryoko's speciality is shiokouji (saltwater preserves), and has a personal workshop in the basement, occasionally making "rice juice"; Yuuki is the Genki Girl of the group and raises animals for her Wild Game style; Zenji is the dorm Bookworm Butt-Monkey, whose room always get trashed for parties and gatherings; Daigo and Shoji are The Big Guys who are constantly bickering; and Fumio, the caretaker, is the Team Mom who has taken care of many generations at the dormitory. By the time of the Red Leaf Hunt, the top 9 of the 1st Years have become this by their cooking styles and personalities: Erina as The Ace of the group for being the only official member of the Council of Ten Masters, Soma as the transfer student and Challenge Seeker, Akira as the refined nose and spices expert, Megumi as the shy girl who makes kind homely food, Alice as The Tease and Molecular Gastronomy prodigy, Ryou as the hot-headed and specialist in seafood, Hisako as Erina's secretary and medicinal cook, Takumi as the Italian-Japanese fusion chef and Soma's self-proclaimed rival, and Subaru as "The King of Stalkers" who can copy any style. The Council of Ten Masters members themselves are a very distinct group, each one with a specific cooking style and forte — from the 2nd Years: Isshiki as the Perpetual Smiler and The Face of the Council of Ten Masters, Eizan as the cold and calculative strategist who specializes in marketing and consulting, Kuga is short and boisterous and leads the Chinese Cooking RS, and Nene as the Aloof Dark-Haired Girl Meganekko. And then we have the 3rd Years: Soumei, the "samurai" with the Cool Sword; Momo, who looks like a middle schooler and is socially awkward; Tosuke, The Big Guy; Rindou, the girl with the Cat Smile; and Eishi, handsome The Leader with a fragile personality.

Overshadowed by Awesome
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_8cb259f4
comment
Overshadowed by Awesome At the beginning of high school, Erina pities the other students in her year, since they can't achieve better than second place — behind her. (Whether this turns out to be accurate remains to be seen.) Yuuki and Ryouko both score 86 in the Fall Classic preliminaries, while Shun and Zenji both hit 88, with the latter being upended at the last moment by Subaru. Their scores would have been high enough had they had been in the other bracket, where Megumi qualified with 88. Nevertheless, the judges are impressed, given that in many years nobody scored above 80, let alone a dozen, meaning the other Polaris Dorm members just had the misfortune of competing in an extremely talented year. Ikumi, Isami, Miyoko and Nao also perform excellently in the Fall Classic with scores ranging from 84 to 87, but get knocked out quite quickly once the real top names start coming out.

Wham Episode Chapter 20: Just as Megumi is finally gaining confidence in herself and the determination to stay with her friends at Training Camp, she is suddenly expelled on the second day. Chapter 103: The final match for the Autumn Election between Soma, Kurokiba, and Hayama ends with Soma's first defeat to someone on his level. The only losses he's had in the series have been against far superior opponents, such as his father, but his loss to Hayama, another first year, brings into perspective that he isn't even the best chef amongst the first years. Chapter 131: Erina's father Azami suddenly appears after ten years at her uptown stall during the last day of the Full Moon Banquet, and if her and Hisako's reactions are any indication, he's a less-than-welcome guest. When Senzaemon orders him to leave the premises, Azami reveals he's already courted enough of the Council of Ten to force a change in deanship, allowing him to take over Totsuki. Chapter 139: Azami overhauls Totsuki's "ruthless meritocracy" system. He abolishes the constant threat of expulsion, but also every single club and research society in school. He sets up a central committee to govern the school composed of himself, the Council of Ten, and his handpicked students. All the cooking lessons will focus only on the most gourmet of foods, everything on a Council of Ten level, thus basically taking away the creative freedom of all other students by making them copy what the central committee and ultimately Azami will set for them. Some teachers and many students are most definitely displeased with this. And then the chapter closes with Eizan dropping by the Polaris dorm to announce that it has been shut down. Chapter 179: Hayama is revealed to have joined Central and is acting as the interim 9th Seat of the Council of Ten, having seemingly sold out Jun and her seminar in his pursuit to be the best in Totsuki. Chapter 191: Soma has won his match against Akira and extended an invitation for him and Jun to join them at Polaris. However, Ikumi, Isami and Hisako have all lost their Shokugekis against the Council of Ten and are expelled. Chapter 192: In addition to the ones above, every one of the "rebels" who wasn't on the path Soma was on, along with Akira as part of his agreement with Central, are expelled, leaving only Soma, Erina, Megumi and Takumi. This leads Soma to form the ballsy plan of taking the majority of the Council of Ten seats so that they can overturn their expulsions. Chapter 194: The last chapter ended with Joichiro and Senzaemon's sudden appearance before Azami. They offer to settle things in a Team Shokugeki match with the remaining rebels against the Council of Ten and that if the rebels lose, Joichiro will swear loyalty to Central and close down Yukihira permanently, which Azami happily accepts. To a lesser extent, we also finally get to see how things came to be from the 69th Generation, including The Reveal that it was Joichiro who was the best chef of that generation, not Doujima. Chapter 227: Despite the past chapters introducing Megishima's cooking for the first time, explaining Kuga's growth as a chef, revealing Mimasaka's new imitation skill, and showcasing for the first time the teamwork that the Regiment de Cuisine is a feature of, the rebels get destroyed 3-0 by the Central team of Saito, Rindou and Tsukasa without a single explanation from the judges. Chapter 263: The Rebels have won the Regimental Shokugeki and thus, the Azami administration is done away with and the Rebel Alliance becomes the new Council of Ten. Surprisingly, Erina decides the First Seat will go to Soma. Soma, in turn, uses his position to nominate Erina as the new dean, a decision which Senzaemon approves of. Chapter 264: The series jumps ahead four months and reveals what the cast have been up to since dismantling Central. All of the 3rd years graduated and have started up business in their respective fields. Eishi seems to finally be enjoying life along with Rindou. Hayama, Ryou, Alice, and Megumi have become the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 10th Seats of the Council of Ten Masters respectively. And Soma's declaration of wanting anyone to challenge him for his new 1st seat ushers in a new change in Totsuki Chapter 296: Asahi's "superhuman talent" is revealed: Cross Knives. What it does is if Asashi uses a tool that another chef uses, he can use their superhuman talents. And he demonstrates this by combining the talents of the entire ensemble of Noirs that were introduced in the Blue thus far, who he either beat off screen or took their tools from after they were eliminated, in order to beat Tsukasa, allowing him to add his knife, and thus Tsukasa's talent, to his own arsenal. Chapter 300: The bracket for The Blue is suddenly changed so that Erina faces her entire block all in a row. While Erina still easily trounces the oposition, the foul play is not unnoticed, which leads to Erina (and Soma and co.) confronting the WGO Bookmaker. The confrontation reveals that the Bookmaker is actually Erina's mother, Mana Nakiri.

Behind Every Great Man: The overarching romantic theme of the series is to find somebody to devote all their cooking to. In many major cases, the chefs cook for a girl (Akira cooks for Jun, Joichiro was inspired by his wife, Azami rediscovered cooking when he met Mana, etc.)and their influence leads them to become great in their own right.

Crazy Enough to Work: In order to secure a true match against Council of Ten Masters Eighth Seat, Kuga, Soma needs to surpass him in something first. The first chance he gets is the school Moon Banquet Festival, where students can choose to operate food stands. If you don't make a profit, you're expelled, but it's really not a risk ... unless you're stupid enough to set up a stand right next to someone like a member of the Council. Soma decides he's going to do exactly that with Kuga's massive Chinese restaurant, much to the despair and irritation of his various friends, arguing that the best way to beat Kuga is to be in a very high traffic area and then steal away customers that had originally come for his rivals. He makes a loss on his first day, but after increasing sales each day by expanding his menu, advertising, calling in additional staff and exploiting Kuga's limited menu and overcrowded restaurant, he finally manages to secure top sales for the fourth day.

Shocking Elimination: Two In-Universe examples during the Fall Classic. Takumi gets beaten by Subaru, even after a last-minute improvisation with an alternative for the dish upon learning of Subaru's method of ripping off and then improving on his opponent's style. Everyone, including the judges, were shocked and angered by Subaru's victory. Soma then deals this towards both Alice, who got the highest score on her preliminaries block, and later Subaru, who was the favorite going into their semifinal match.

Laser-Guided Karma: In Soma's first class at the academy, two students sabotage his and Megumi's dish by dumping salt into it, feeling that they need to put Soma in his place after his Badass Boast earlier that morning. With nowhere near enough time to start over, everyone is convinced that they're going to fail, including Megumi herself. However, with a bit of improvisation, Soma is able to finish the dish anyway, and it's so delicious that their homeroom teacher (who has a reputation for being incredibly strict) is absolutely beside himself with joy upon taking a bite. Not only are the saboteurs so awestruck by the display that their food starts to burn while they're distracted, but, in the middle of their panic, one of them accidentally drops a bottle of salt into their dish, ruining it in the same manner that they ruined Soma and Megumi's dish. Needless to say, they failed.

Absurdly High-Stakes Game: Anything and everything can be staked in a Shokugeki. In fact, the school bylaws that govern the Shokugeki tradition state that both parties must put up stakes of equal value, to be agreed upon by the participants. So far, we have seen prized kitchen knives, booth sites for the School Festival, a secretarial job, a Hollywood Restraining Order, several club rooms (along with millions of yen in cooking equipment), significant areas of farmland, seats on the Council of Ten Masters, and a chef's entire career staked in shokugeki at some point.

Feminine Women Can Cook: Setting aside that the manga acknowledges most women find it difficult to be recognized in the male dominated cooking career, Totsuki Academy is an elite cooking school. Therefore, any girl who attends it can definitely cook be she feminine, tomboyish, or, in Nao Sadatsuka's case, really creepy.

Betty and Veronica
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_94e4c8ab
comment
Betty and Veronica Though he doesn't think of them in those terms at all yet, the two girls that Soma gets the most ship tease with are Megumi and Erina. Megumi, the Betty, is cute but has a slim build and is overall much plainer with a quiet, domestic and very supportive personality. Erina on the other hand has more of a sexy body type with considerable curves and blonde hair. As far as personality goes, she tends to be more ambitious, aggressive and demanding, though secretly quite nice. However, it's mostly teasing at this point with none of the three explicitly interested in the others with Soma and Erina in particular only recently having become friends at all. During the Karaage mini-arc, Ikumi was Veronica because of her brash personality, her rich background and more voluptuous figure; in contrast to Mayumi's Betty as the shy, modest and more humble upbringing, paired with the fact that she knew Soma since pre-kinder. Soma, of course, was completely clueless about this. Flipped in the first Time Skip arc, with Joichiro's two sons, Asahi and Soma, fighting over who is worthy of Erina's affections. Asahi is a bad boy rogue chef, while Soma is now one of Erina's biggest supporters as the student council first seat to her headmaster.

Crippling Overspecialization: Several students and teachers specialize so much in one particular style of cooking that they don't practice in others, such as Ikumi focusing so much on meat that when the dish requires meat and rice, she neglects the rice, leading her to lose her Shokugeki against Soma because the judges cleaned out their bowls of Soma's cheap beef and rice while eating all of her meat, but not finishing the rice off. Shinomiya also goes this way, being so afraid of trying new things due to his Freudian Excuse that he's allowed his skills to stagnate.

Took a Level in Badass: Isshiki's nightmare of everyone coming back from the Training Camp, including Soma turning into Kenshiro, and the rest becoming Japanese Delinquents (complete with black uniforms) with Megumi as the chain twirling leader. Everyone who came back from the Stagiaire period learned something which helped them grow immensely, particularly from their second assignments: Soma had the principles of French cuisine hammered into him by Shinomiya, which in turn gave him enough grounding to successfully assist Eishi Tsukasa. Ryou learned the art of seasoning and using subtle shades of flavouring, enabling him to go toe-to-toe with one of the top second-year students. Megumi has always been good at customer service, but the experiences she gained working front-of-house during the second assignment helped Soma keep his stand afloat during the School Festival.

Barbie Doll Anatomy: Usually, the breasts of all females will be covered when they have "foodgasms". With the exception of Alice Nakiri in chapter 66, where she has... no nipples. Strangely enough, her "foodgasm" does not end there and continues in the beginning of chapter 67, where her breasts are covered. The ending for the anime also has the characters drawn this way through much of it, particularly the girls. Likewise, the bare-chested male characters are drawn this way.

Filler: There are two cases which are ultimately subverted, as they actually serve to further the plot (and mostly serve as Breather Episodes). The Sumire District arc is devoted to Soma's brief return to his hometown, but it quickly transforms into a duel with Mozuya, a rapidly-expanding karaage restaurant chain quickly gobbling up all the local businesses... which led to him piquing the interest of Etsuya Eizan, Ninth Seat of the Council of Ten Masters, who served as consultant. At this time the Council of Ten Masters were also discussing who to put into the Fall Classic. When Soma and Megumi join Satoshi as substitutes for a children's cooking school, it initially seemed like a random breather amidst the action, except it actually raised two major plot points: the candies the kids give to Soma later gave him an idea for his dish against Alice, while Megumi starts to realize that she has fallen in love with Soma.

comment
Dramatically Missing the Point: This comes up in a few cooking matches that follow a theme or are to produce a certain type of dish. One side will make something that is delicious and adheres to the base requirements of the match, but is somehow unfitting for what they were supposed to be making. In Soma's match with Alice to make a bento, she loses because her meal was basically a sushi plate that can be packaged up and preserved. The judges point out that her dish barely qualified as a bento and she would have made the same meal even if the challenge had been something entirely different.

Long Speech Tea Time: When Soma and Megumi visit Jun, at one point she starts a long lecture and doesn't notice that everyone soon leaves to have tea and talk about spice. Cut to her at the end of her lecture, realizing that everyone has left.

comment
Double-Meaning Title: Shokugeki no Soma literally means "Body or Physique of Food Clash", yet it can be interpreted as "Soma of Shokugeki". The word "Soma" is a pun on Soma's name in the Japanese version, and a direct reference to his name in the English localization.

Mood Whiplash
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_a4c37cbe
comment
Mood Whiplash: Takumi occasionally plays with this: while trying to have a dramatic boast, he gets interrupted and turns the moment awkward. During her introduction, Alice teases Soma with words and leaves in a cool fashion, only to bump into Ryou and begins whining about how it ruins her intimidation factor. Senzaemon appears imposing and intimidating, only to choke right before delivering his big opening speech at the Fall Classic. Senzaemon kicking out Azami, until it is then revealed that Senzaemon has just been ousted — thanks to 6 of the Council of Ten. Chapter 149 is perhaps the biggest mood whiplash yet, with all the enjoying inside Polar Star and some funny and heartwarming scenes, Azami suddenly visits the PSD with a nightmarish face.

comment
Rule of Drama: Played for Laughs. Soma is drawing lots for what will be the theme of a Shokugeki between him and Nene, a soba specialist. Naturally, narrative law is invoked and of all the lots he could have drawn, he of course ends up drawing the soba lot. However, this is after Nene had been boasting about how she would win regardless of whatever theme had been chosen, leaving her in an even more awkward position than everyone else.

When Senzaemon orders him to leave the premises, Azami reveals he's already courted enough of the Council of Ten to force a change in deanship, allowing him to take over Totsuki.

Loophole Abuse: In episode 9, Soma asks Hinako if they're allowed to use any ingredients they find within the the fences of the resort. She confirms it, and he immediately grabs her "Kaki no tane", or peanut and senbei snack that she had sitting next to her. He then uses that in his dish. In episode 10, Soma asks Koujirou if alumni are exempt from being challenged to a shokugeki after Koujirou fails Megumi for altering her dish slightly instead of following his recipe to the letter. Soma wants him to allow Megumi to pass if he can defeat the teacher in a cooking duel.

Retcon: The early chapters mentioned that Soma didn't have any grandparent figure to look up to growing up, as evidenced by an elderly Yukihira customer he grew very attached to and went out of his way to make dishes for when she couldn't physically go anymore. The very late stages of the manga revealed that he had a maternal grandfather around the shop at that very same time, who sometimes played with Soma and is still alive come the epilogue.

Worse yet, they are in the red and thus in danger of being expelled. Erina is upset at this and calls them out on it, especially because they were all in the top 8 of the Fall Classic and the three guys were the finalists.

Shadow Archetype
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_b5e63cc4
comment
Shadow Archetype: Creatively used. The shadows weren't just pairs but whole groups of characters. They start out the same but different circumstances growing up led to them becoming entirely different characters. The Genius heir/heiress: Erina is the prominent example which will be used as baseline for comparison. She was born with The Gift, was the heiress of the foremost "food nobles" clan, suffered Training from Hell from her dad and grew up to be similarly an Elitist stuck up who used their gift to get everything they wanted before Character Development. Her good memories of befriending Alice and meeting Saiba were forgotten after her father's training. Momo Akanegakubo is also born with The Gift, heir to a wealthy family but was adored and spoiled rotten by her parents. She became a Womanchild Elitist obsessed with cuteness. She represents what Erina could have become if she was spoiled and used her gift carefreely. Satoshi Isshiki is the heir of the most prominent traditional food clans in the country. He was trained in cooking at a very young age and easily mastered everything. However, the weight of being the heir left him with a disdain attitude for cooking before he met his inspiration - a chef who cooked with joy and fun. He grew up a playful, well-adjusted young man with undeniable talent. He represents what Erina could have become if her inspirational memory of meeting Saiba wasn't blemished by the elitist policy her father imprinted on her. Takumi Aldini, though less prominent is also an heir with considerable talent in cooking. His father also noted that he too lost interest in cooking. However, his friendship and rivalry with his brother Isami pushes him onward. He represents what Erina could have become if she had Alice growing up. Mimasaka Subaru started off the same way as the others: as an heir with remarkable ability. His father straight up exiled him when he surpassed him. Subaru's case asks a fundamental question: What if Erina's family hated her Gift? The overshadowed one: Growing up in the shadow of the genius, this character's response to the circumstances comes to define their adulthood. Soma Yukihira lived in his father's shadow, and never once won a cooking match against him. Despite this, his Determinator status led him to constant developments, a playful attitude and immunity to insults. He however, greatly believed that improvement comes from within and was initially reluctant to find answers outside of his home diner. Alice Nakiri constantly heard people gushing about Erina growing up. Her rich family allowed her the chance to travel halfway around the world to an unfamiliar country to find a way to surpass Erina. While she grew up to be a playful genius, she lacked the emotional maturity that Soma possesses from his day to day serving of customers and challenging his father. Nene Kinokuni lived in Satoshi Isshiki's shadow. She responded by training really hard to improve her skills. However she lacked the emotional resilience that Soma possesses and her issue with Satoshi was never resolved. She was left with a crippling inferiority complex and a dependence on techniques. Isami Aldini has known all his life that his brother is better than him at cooking but does not resent him or give up on challenging him. Arato Hisako has known Erina all her life and practically worships her, and willingly becomes number 2 for the genius, unlike every other example above.

The revelation that Subaru's stalking is for outwitting and outmatching his competition to the last detail for the pleasure of humiliating his opponents in a "shokugeki" with their prized tools on the line (complete with resorting to anything from insulting their beliefs, insulting their family, defiling their culinary tools and/or making bigoted remarks to provoke them into accepting his challenge) is when he's seen as utter scum.

Erina walks in partway through, misunderstands that they're fighting over her heart (half true) and instantly faints.

Overused Running Gag: When people taste delicious food, they're always put into imagine spots that tend to involve them naked and blushing or in cosplay outfits. During the Fall Classic, Senzaemon gets a page of his traditional clothing exploding off of him. The next page reveals what really happened. He really does strip when he tastes delicious food, as does his son, Soe. There have also been times when after a foodgasm the person snaps out of their reaction only to find themselves holding whatever silly pose they were making in the imagine spot, like all the fall classic judges standing in front of their table holding hands and smiling.

Through His Stomach: Every time it comes up in an omake it goes wrong for some reason. Nikumi tries to make lunch for Soma with the classic 'I made too much, so don't attach too much importance to this' line, but at Polaris every student really did make too much and are trying to dump food off on each other. Takumi and Isami's fangirls try to make lunch for the twins, but 'maidens' hearts are crushed' when they realize the Aldinis are just way better than them. Finally, back when Joichiro was in school, his female classmates would beg for his failure dishes because of weird BDSM subtext.

Ecchi: Food Porn has never been more accurate. Most of the "foodgasms" contain some form of sexual undertones, while others throw in some sort of fantastical element into the mix. For example, several incorporate some sort of wacky cosplay, while others actually resemble shounen battles. There are also "foodgasms" that are just plain funny, such as the gorilla that suddenly appears in Erina's hot spring (meaning she didn't like it).

You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Isshiki believes that by taking on so many challenges against the school's top chefs and winning, Soma will inspire the students who constantly look down on him to put more effort into their cooking. Megumi basically breathes this trope as she learns to put aside her stage fright and let her true talents shine.

Hope Spot: Takumi thinks that incorporating some last minute olive oil from a flask that he keeps with him for good luck can improve his dish and gain an edge over Subaru, whose cooking style involves making the exact same dish as his opponent and improving it a step further. Unfortunately, it's not enough to beat his opponent, who predicted this maneuver as well and prepared for it accordingly. Done again by Eizan after Azami takes over Totsuki and abolishes all research societies and clubs and establishes a system to cook foods that only he approves of. The students all believe that they can contest the decision using Shokugekis, except...NOPE! It turns out that the Shokugekis will all be rigged and the judges will always rule in favor of Central. Taken even further by Azami himself. After Soma defeats Eizan and puts an end to the match-fixing scheme and ensures that all future Shokugekis will be judged fairly, Azami simply answers the challenges with his handpicked students, including the members of the Council of Ten who voted for him. Sure, you can keep your research society if you win a Shokugeki, but you'll have to beat the highest-ranked students in Totsuki to do so.

Fan Disservice: During reaction shots, you might get a cute girl mostly naked or in a fetishy outfit, but you've also got roughly even odds of seeing Luciano Pavarotti singing in a duck costume, the prince from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with an apple instead of a head, or a wrinkly old Japanese man in a magical girl outfit.

Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Megumi's hands shake uncontrollably during the training camp Shokugeki.

In the second chapter of le Dessert, Erina does this to her dad when he thinks about leaving the Nakiri family for good, complete with an Armor-Piercing Slap for good measure.

Self-Deprecation: During the crossover chapter, Irina tries the food and reacts accordingly. All the other heroines try (in vain) to control themselves, figuring that the only reason anyone would read Shokugeki no Soma would be to enjoy Shun Saeki's foodgasms. Erina can be seen in the background not saying a thing.

Red Shirt Army: At least 90 to 99% of the student body in one generation will be expelled before graduating Totsuki, due to its curriculum's competitive, cutthroat nature. During the admission ceremony for the 92nd Generation, Senzaemon reveals that of the 812 from their preceding generation, only 76 (that is, 9%) made it into eleventh-grade, and no doubt even fewer will make it into twelfth-grade, let alone graduate. For example, in the training camp arc around three hundred students are expelled and then roughly two hundred more during Stagiaire Month. This is actually significantly better than normal.

Heroic Rematch: Whenever Soma loses to a particularly difficult opponent, he'll always learn from the experience to come back better and pay it back in kind: He lost to Akira Hayama in the Autumn Selection finals, and defeated him when he defected to Azami's side during the Central Arc. Asahi Saiba trashes him when he comes to Totsuki to take Erina and force her to marry him. Fast-forward to the BLUE semifinals, he gets the chance to one-up him, and in front of everybody including Erina's parents and Joichiro himself, no less.

Wacky Wayside Tribe: The autumn election preliminaries and the actual tournament style competition itself are interrupted by Megumi and Soma accompanying Isshiki to one of his projects, where they end up taking over a small cooking class for little kids. It does have a small impact on Megumi’s character arc, however, and indirectly inspires an idea Soma's next dish during the tournament.

Mundane Made Awesome: The dishes are either so good that people have orgasms eating it, or so bad that it feels like sexual assault. Even the simple culinary techniques used to prepare each dish are done using this trope, as seen when the Aldini brothers passing a mezzaluna is portrayed as an epic Combination Attack.

Loads and Loads of Characters: By the Fall Classic, most characters have been introduced. However, the current cast are largely first-year students, with only a few second-years, and no third-years in sight yet. Naturally, the plot is still developing and Soma is a first-year himself, with no idea how skilled his seniors are until he builds his reputation at Totsuki.

 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_d2ddb362
comment
"Reason You Suck" Speech: Isshiki gives one of these to Eizan about the entire school. According to Isshiki, the students look down on Soma not just because he's from a small family restaurant, but because he keeps winning against geniuses despite having no special talent of his own. The other students can't be bothered to put out the same effort Soma does and would rather just give up, so it's easier for their pride if they pretend Soma has no chance of winning. Erina, at the beginning, keeps trying to deliver one to Soma; his ego about losing is nonexistent, so he either a) says to wait until he's done cooking to judge (if the speech is done early), or b) just shrugs it off and says now he knows his faults, failing is learning, and just has to get better for next time. This drives Erina, who for her whole life has brought even adult chefs to their knees with even the slightest critique and crushed their will, up the goddamn wall.

Refuge in Audacity: In Chapter 80, Mimasaka Subaru reveals that he and Soma will be facing each other in the next round of the Fall Classic. He attempts to bet Takumi's mezzaluna against Soma's cooking knife. Soma not only agrees, he takes it a step further, betting his cooking career against all 100 tools Mimasaka has stolen. And then he tells Mimasaka what he's going to make. Mimasaka himself is this trope. The guy publicly admits, many times, that he spends most of every single day stalking people, including and not limited to hacking into their computers. One would expect this kind of behavior to get him expelled from the school or even arrested, but the most this gets him is anger and disapproval from the judges in the competition for the underhanded way he competes.

Hypocrite
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_d52d28b6
comment
Hypocrite: Despite being so self-assured of their superiority, many Central members are willing to cheat in order to bring down supposedly 'inferior' cooks. Eizan claims that they do so more out of a desire to crush the hopes of any rebels, than out of cowardice, and that Central would beat dissenters in a fair match anyway, yet they continue to play dirty even after some of the rebels show their worth during the Survivor's Purge. One of the Central professors complains that the rebels are only surviving thanks to Erina's lectures. While that's partially true, he's not in much of a position to say that thanks to Central's MO of allowing students to pass if they imitate Central's teachers. Not to mention that unlike Central, Erina isn't holding her students' hands and is merely teaching them theory and letting them apply it creatively. Azami defends his reforms by citing how cutthroat Totsuki's original structure was and saying that none of the students deserve to be discarded, a sharp contrast to Senzaemon openly admitting he intends to fail the vast majority of his students. And yet, Azami is quick to throw away anyone who doesn't fall in line and outright calls most chefs irrelevant, with his plans involving shutting down entire restaurants that don't match his standards.

Training from Hell
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_d66cd0e6
comment
Training from Hell: The "Totsuki Friendship and Rapport Training" is literally referred as this. Not only must first-year students cook at least 150 to 200 dishes per day, those who can't are expelled. Every year, about half of the first-years are eliminated. Usually, there aren't even scheduled hours to sleep: Your only chance to sleep is during the brief free time, during which you may need to be preparing for your next assignment instead. Erina puts the Polaris residents (plus Ikumi and the Aldini brothers) through a week-long study session, in preparation for the second-year advancement exams administered by Central, who are obviously going to stack the deck against the "rebels." A later scene from around the end of the study session looks like something out of a murder movie.

comment
Writers Cannot Do Math: During the cooking buffet challenge at the Training Camp it's mentioned that the minimum required dishes served to pass is 200. Afterwards, it's mentioned that there are 628 students left at the end of the training account. Putting these numbers together that means that there had to have been enough people to serve 125,600 dishes to, adding on Erina and Alice going over at 407 and 380 respectively that totals at least 125,987 dishes (and likely much higher when you consider other people who went over the limit and those who didn't manage to make it to 200 dishes). Even assuming every person sampled at least a dozen dishes, that still means that there were over 10,000 people at the resort, which nowhere near matches the amount of people we actually see onscreen. Either everyone in the Shokugeki no Soma universe is a natural Big Eater or Totsuki has manpower equivalent to that of a small country. Meanwhile, Soma has just over 30 minutes to cook 180 omelets. But they take 2.5 minutes to cook and he has 8 burners — that's a maximum of 104 omelets. (In the anime, he has 16 burners.)

The Moon Banquet Festival goes by a longer process. After Soma makes his official challenge against the Council of Ten Masters's Terunori Kuga, it started with Megumi deciding to side with Soma as his aide. Miyoko Hojou, even though she couldn't join him, showed Soma how Kuga worked with the Chinese RS and lent him her club's cart. Ikumi helped them with tips on how to work with pork and spices for the Huijiao Bing buns. Erina, reluctantly, gave him critique and information on Chinese Cuisine and regions (and indirectly Hisako encouraged her to give Soma the feedback). Yuuya Tomita lent Soma benches. Subaru Mimasaka joined as the Sixth Ranger by studying Soma's work and speed, doubling his output. Megumi's RS contributed with decorations. And finally Ikumi, Takumi and Isami arrived as The Cavalry when the three of them couldn't attend the increasing customers, making it possible to surpass Restaurant Kuga.

Reasonable Authority Figure: With the exception of Erina's grudge against Soma, the Council of Ten Masters seem to judge the performances of the student without bias, though Eizan does abuse his position in order to set Soma up for failure. Even then, he doesn't sabotage the competition. They also don't judge exclusively by grades, noting Megumi's good performance during the training camp and allowing her to compete despite her widespread lack of recognition. The reasonableness goes out the window when Azami returns.

Indy Ploy: Soma competes with Terunori Kuga (8th Seat) to sell more Chinese food in the Moon Banquet Festival. In the event, on the first day he sells hardly anything, putting him deep in the red, but with a lot of help he does win the fourth day, avoiding expulsion and putting a spoke in a different competition of Kuga's.

Cast Full of Pretty Boys: Most of the students are drawn average to handsome (especially Takumi, for the joy of Jump fangirls). Even Isami slims down into Tall, Dark, and Handsome during summer, and Zenji is drawn better whenever he's not being a Nervous Wreck.

Insistent Terminology
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_e563bf09
comment
Insistent Terminology: Justified. The word "Shokugeki" is used specifically for official cooking duels between people affiliated with Totsuki. Unlike any ordinary cooking duel, Shokugekis need to have an odd number of judges, conditions of equal value (for example, expulsion doesn't even match an Council of Ten Masters seat) and certification from the administration.

Soma Yukihira lived in his father's shadow, and never once won a cooking match against him. Despite this, his Determinator status led him to constant developments, a playful attitude and immunity to insults. He however, greatly believed that improvement comes from within and was initially reluctant to find answers outside of his home diner.

Freudian Trio: By temperaments of the three finalists of the Fall Classic and their new dynamic as Vitriolic Best Buds, it has Soma as The Kirk (cool under pressure and balanced emotionally), Ryou as The McCoy (the most hotheaded of them) and Hayama as The Spock (the quiet ace). By the Moon Banquet Festival, Ryou and Akira's roles changed after Alice managed to take over the Shiomi Seminar booth, with her as The McCoy (impulsive and outgoing), Akira as The Kirk (the rational guy who is trying to deal with his frustration) and Ryou as The Spock (since he is without his bandana during the arc, he sees the situation neutrally without showing his real emotions)

The Tell: Members of the Nakiri family all "strip" when tasting particularly delicious foods, with Senzaemon's being the most literal interpretation. Even Nakiris by marriage like Leonara and Azami have similar involuntary reactions, the former "stripping" her poor Japanese grammar and the latter causing other people to strip. This becomes significant in the Regiment De Cuisine where even as Azami fervently denies that he liked Erina's dish everyone around him is stripping, proving he's lying.

Crossover There is a two-page Jump special where Kusuo Saiki (from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) and his dad dine in the Yukihira. Unfortunately, Saiki's psychic powers grant him the ability to view every mental "foodgasm" at the restaurant, and he promptly loses his appetite after seeing what his father's looks like. Chapter 116.5 features Erina hosting a banquet featuring fellow Jump heroines Nami, Chitoge Kirisaki, Kagura, Chika Amatori, Kiyoko Shimizu, and Irina Jelavic. It goes just as well as you'd expect from such a series as Shokugeki no Soma (excepting Chika who, of course, is still a child).

comment
Anti-Climax: The final chapters of the Manga repeatedly stresses that satisfying Mana Nakiri's God Tongue is an exceedingly difficult task, not just for professional chefs, but also other Nakiri members. Soma and Asahi's best efforts aren't enough to warrant praise from Mana, while Erina believes is downtrodden with the revelation, yet continues to compete into the BLUE's final round. After tasting Soma's dish, she regains her confidence and effortlessly produces a dish to her mother's expectations, winning the tournament. Unfortuately, Erina's dish and its presentation to Mana is handled off-screen, with the issue of the God Tongue's curse on Mana only implied to have been resolved.

 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_eef00c27
comment
Japanese Spirit: All three forms are shown in the manga. Cooks like Erina and Akira have an innate talent, their tongue and nose respectively makes them stand out and helps them refine their dishes.note Including Akira in this is a subtle subversion of the trope, since he is either Indian or Thai, although adopted by a Japanese family. This is quite characteristic of the rather egalitarian and democratic message the series shows despite the elitist setting. Megumi's greatest strength is her resolve - her concern for the people she is cooking for. Her hospitality can be felt in her food and touches the hearts of her customers. And thirdly is Soma's persistence. As Isshiki explains to a dumbfounded Eizan, what makes Soma stand out, and the reason why most people in the school look down on him, is that, despite his accomplishments in the short time he has spent in Totsuki, if they were to acknowledge him, they would accept that they themselves did not put enough effort in their cooking. Soma's hard work and never faltering spirit is what makes him a great cook.

Technician vs. Performer
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_ef3d1b57
comment
Technician vs. Performer: There's a running theme in the story between different approaches to cooking which often fall under technician vs. performer lines. The story itself seems to believe in the need for balance, and both extremes are presented as detrimental. Demonstrated pointedly during the Training Camp day of feeding 200 people buffet style. Soma creates something that is technically good but because he didn't factor in the time/endurance aspects of the food to the challenge, he's about to fail. He comes up with an idea that is 100% performance and he passes by the skin of his teeth. But several characters state that in spite of his win, relying on that performance ability to get by won't work forever. Most of the cast are varying degrees of technician, but Megumi is almost pure performer. When she has a match against Shinomiya, he notes that the food isn't cooked right and it isn't joined together properly, indicating she’s not nearly as careful as the other cooks. Then it brings him to tears, because he can really tell how hard she worked and how much style and thoughtfulness went into what she cooked. His own dish for the match is considered superior, but is so lifeless and stagnant compared to what he could be doing that he actually ends up voting against himself and declares their match void, despite winning! Alice, as a molecular gastronomist, is at the far end of the technician side of the spectrum. Trouble is, while her cooking is almost unanimously considered impressive, she tends to be so preoccupied with showing off her cutting-edge culinary science and coming up with exotic presentations that she often misses the point of an assignment. Megumi’s dish comes right after hers and while Alice gets a higher score, the judges seem happier with Megumi’s food, directly comparing it to her and noting the human warmth in it. Subaru takes it in a repulsive direction. His cooking skill is top notch, but he has absolutely no interest in actually making something people will enjoy. That'’s merely a side benefit to his actual goal, which is taking something someone is proud of, insulting it and then challenging them to a humiliation match. During the match, he then takes their specialty, studies it and improves it by enough to cause them to lose. It’s said that despite his excellent skills, there is not a restaurant in the world that would be willing to hire him. This conflict lies at the core of the Central vs Rebel conflicts. Azami's Central philosophy is that cooks don't have to listen to any comments from the "swines" (ie: normal people who eat their foods), only from the God's tongue (ie: the pinnacle of technical perfection). The Rebels, including God's Tongue herself believe that what chefs and their dishes want is freedom of expression.

Early-Bird Cameo: In chapter 4 of the manga, we see several characters who won't be introduced until later, including Yuuki, Ryou and the Aldini twins, with other standout faces from that chapter seemingly bound for later appearances. Episode 3 of the anime (based on that chapter) adds a few more to the mix, including the rest of the Polaris Dormitory residents, Alice (standing next to Ryou), Ikumi, Akira, Nao (stalking Erina with binoculars), Miyoko and Yua (who also has a blink-and-you-miss it cameo in episode 9 sitting next to Megumi in the bus after passing Chef Inui's test).

Decomposite Character: From the pilot One-shot, we got a character named Julio Rossi Saotome. Even though the character was Adapted Out for the main story, many of his elements were used for other characters: His role as Erina's ever-loyal secretary was given to Hisako Arato. He also was defeated by Soma in a Shokugeki, even thought his entry was made of more expensive ingredients, like Ikumi. His character design was a more butch version of legendary alumnus Donato Gotouda. He is also half-Italian, like the Aldini twins. Subverted with Julio Shiratsu, who is very similar to Julio Saotome in appearance and personality.

Impossibly Delicious Food: The descriptions of the dishes are often complicated, but judging by the character reactions, they're enough to make the reader drool. In Chapter 1, a Buddhist monk finds Joichiro's dish so tempting he discards his vows just to break his fast. Played with regarding Erina due to her sensitive palate: any dish she eats must be this trope. Just imagine how well a strawberry cake or a cup of tea must taste for her to even sample it.

Running Gag

Running Gag: The "foodgasms" count. Soma's horrible cooking squid experiments and the reactions to the taste, especially by girls. Anytime Erina delivers a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Soma, it sails right over his head or he shrugs it off, much to her annoyance and ire. Takumi's schtick of saying something cool, then being thrown into an awkward situation moments after. Hinako always makes fun of Shinomiya or does something annoying near him. He'll put up with it briefly, but then he'll lift her up one-handed by clamping his hand over her face while her legs kick around feebly below. When Lucie joins her in making fun of Shinomiya's tsundere attitude towards Soma, he lifts them both. The Polaris dormitory always meeting and gathering in Zenji's room. He always asks why they keep doing it every time as well.

The Power of Friendship
 Food Wars! (Manga) / int_faece9aa
comment
The Power of Friendship: Soma's main (non-cooking) attribute is his easy-going nature that can mostly bring anyone to his side; from fellow students that see him as unworthy, arrogant, and/or small fry, to past alumni who are ready to expel him, to, begrudgingly, the Defrosting Ice Queen who refused to acknowledge his talent in the first place. In two occasions, where Soma's talents could only be possible thanks to the help of others. During the Karaage Wars arc, saving the economy of Sumiredoori and Mozuya's defeat is only achieved thanks to all the efforts of the shops combined: Soma and Ikumi's recipe, Tomitaya's as the main point, cooking instruments provided by the hardware store, the printer producing the packaging and flyers, Mayumi designing the flyers and helping Yuuya, and the supplies and ingredients were provided by the local grocery store and the butcher (provided and supervised by Ikumi). The Moon Banquet Festival goes by a longer process. After Soma makes his official challenge against the Council of Ten Masters's Terunori Kuga, it started with Megumi deciding to side with Soma as his aide. Miyoko Hojou, even though she couldn't join him, showed Soma how Kuga worked with the Chinese RS and lent him her club's cart. Ikumi helped them with tips on how to work with pork and spices for the Huijiao Bing buns. Erina, reluctantly, gave him critique and information on Chinese Cuisine and regions (and indirectly Hisako encouraged her to give Soma the feedback). Yuuya Tomita lent Soma benches. Subaru Mimasaka joined as the Sixth Ranger by studying Soma's work and speed, doubling his output. Megumi's RS contributed with decorations. And finally Ikumi, Takumi and Isami arrived as The Cavalry when the three of them couldn't attend the increasing customers, making it possible to surpass Restaurant Kuga. During Soma's Shokugeki against Eizan, his winning dish was a result of experimentation and feedback with all his roomates. Soma described Polaris and his friends as the Castle where he will refine his skills, just like he previously described his home at Yukihira's.

Brick Joke: During the training camp, Gin makes Koujirou hold an unofficial Shokugeki against Soma and Megumi, with fellow alumni Hinako, Fuyumi, Donato and Hitoshi as judges, who worry that Roland Chapelle will find out. Nearly a hundred chapters later, Koujirou invites Chapelle to the opening of the first Japanese branch of his restaurant. Hinako accidentally blabs about the Shokugeki and the others only barely manage to cover it up before he finds out and punishes them. In the First Chapter, after Yaeko leaves Yukihira's, Soma tells his father to throw the saltnote Since it cleans the house and prevents demons to get in, to which Joichiro replies that it's a waste of salt. In Chapter 151, after Azami's visit to Polaris, Shoji and Yuuki suggest getting the salt, with Fumio yelling at them to not waste the salt. One that took a long time coming. All through the manga's run, Soma's been making peanut butter squid to the disgust of everyone. Erina's final dish for the Team Shokugeki against Azami's Council of Ten includes chicken, with...grilled peanut butter squid. And it tastes AMAZING.
