APR162104Soma Yukihira’s old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father’s culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school! Can Soma really cut it in a place that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress of the school that he belongs there at all?!

The Fall Classic semifinals conclude with a historic first—a three-way battle in the finals! The ingredient chosen to grace the grandest stage is an autumn staple, pike. But with such a tight time limit, what incredible dishes can finalists Soma, Hayama and Kurokiba possibly create?!

Took us long enough to get to the final show down of the fall classic but we are finally there. It quickly becomes clear that Soma’s eye for fish is not good. Compared to Hayama and Kurokiba, he’s just too new. So Soma spends the next 10 days thinking about how to train himself to pick the best pike. He realizes he doesn’t need to pick the freshest fish the day of.

The match finally arrives and both Hayama and Kurokiba impress the judges with their dishes. Soma comes up with his dish and something you never expected happens. Thats right, a cliffhanger! Leave it to this manga to leave us on edge just when things were getting exciting. The anime is set to return next month but catch up on the manga now and grab issue 12 and see just what Soma has in store for that fish dish.
