Last chapter ended with Erina coming to Souma's room right? I'm not paying that much attention anymore, let's see when I ultimately forget about it.

I watched a bit of the anime. It looks like SAO but with cooking. Does it get better?

It's not like that at all, but whatever.

It is a good series, then it becomes a slog. The anime hasn't gotten to where it becomes a slog, and that drop off point is very sudden.

So Azami never once cooked for her or his cooking is shit? Believable.

WSJD Shokugeki no Souma 168 DDL: http://www32.zippyshare.com/v/5U6zcPDR/file.html

I've identified one big issue I have with Shokugeki no Souma that applies to the entire series: there's virtually no breathing room.

arc ends
Cooking battle
mini arc ends
Cooking battle
ends
Cooking with kids or something whatever

We don't get time to see characters relaxing very often, we don't see characters outside of PSD except for during cooking scenes and such, it's extremely difficult to get invested in the cast. I find it really, really hard to care about anything, Souma included and he's the character we see the most.

I know it's a cooking manga, so cooking, but it gets tiring and it feels like the characters aren't real because all they seem to care about is cooking. You can say ">complaining about realism in (this) manga" but suspension of disbelief can go a long way.

Whatever.

Has something happened recently in the manga?

I think it was probably around 5-6ish months ago I was still actively in the threads and everybody was excited for the new scans and the threads were huge. Haven't kept up with it for a long time, though. The art is too good for anything to have spoiled this in that time, right?

A big bad was introduced and he's fucking horrible. He made the manga overly serious and changed the entire vibe and format of the manga. It honestly fucking sucks right now, and there are a lot of problems with it.

I actually liked this chapter a lot. It feels like Erina is an actual character now, instead of a caricature. Having her admit she's lost is great. I'm ready for Souma's HEALING dishes.

Even as it was happening no one liked it. We hadn't even gotten to see the other Elite 10 in action before this blindsided us and the first thing we found out was that they were traitors.
The Azami administration jumped the shark hard. Even fucking Tsukasa is a letdown.

Suspension of disbelief is a meme directly related to the lack of SoL, I'd guess.

And he's about to give her the famous Yukihira dish

Thanks again Vizanon, like said it's all in the LNs and shit, which to everyone here is ridiculous but from WSJ's perspective it makes perfect sense.

Kids have low retention rates and they probably think that they need to keep up the 'action' (Naturally I don't agree seeing as cooking is barely more action than SOL but hey their POV) and they think the SOL lovers are all older, who will fork out the cash for the side material.

Caleb Bennett

I dropped it after Eizan lost because Souma said 'ur a feget' and used ketchup. Did he dick Erina yet?

Dominic Myers
Dominic Myers

you're right, just wish it wasn't like this

You can get away with SoL/development in WSJ manga (see World Trigger, for example), but it's not going to be as popular. It's risky.

Levi Gonzalez
Levi Gonzalez

are you guys saying who is the best girl for Souma or just who you like best?

Because if you are defending the ship you are pretty much protecting your cuck fantasy.

Elijah Carter
Elijah Carter

It's a bit different for World Trigger user, because WT has real action. Like action action. So the spikes basically keep up retention kinda like a roller coaster ya know? It's why One Piece is so successful despite having a lot of non-combat scenes and just randumb silliness.

But Shokugeki? It's a series that's carried by Tosh's porn art, and other than having cute chibis like Alice making faces at times, the direction has clearly been to be 'cool'. It's hard to be cool to the young readers if you slow down the pace and not battle for a few chapters because even during battle the kids apparently aren't all that impressed (I believe if you check the WSJ ranking threads it usually reflects that the non-Soma male cooking battles get jack shit rankings) so they are probably scared.

Ironically enough, it'd probably go over better if they just stopped having so many guys take part at the top and have girls like Meat/Megumi slowly become top contenders, but with the way the story is written that's not possible in the near future.

TL;DR WSJ seems to want to push Shokugeki as a serious cooking manga to a much larger degree than what their readers want (mostly just want tits and ass duh).

Carson Lee

They did seem to like Azami's introduction at least, so I don't actually know what the kids want.

Jaxson Cook
Jaxson Cook

Cause Azami appeared cool (to them). At least before everything else happened. This might be presumptuous of me to say, but for Shokugeki there's only so much you can change cooking before kids get a bit bored of it.

Even with real fighting action in manga, authors regularly rely on things such as time skips and power escalation in order to keep interest on non RomCom/SOL/comedy/etc series, but Shokugeki isn't aiming to be those things, it's aiming to be a 'battle shonen' first, while the Romcom/SOL/comedy come second just like battle shonen do.

I mean people really liked Kurokiba at first, remember the first tournament? Even guys on Sup Forums liked him to an extent, mainly cause he was an angry kid with an otter build and sharp teeth. Not saying they hate him now but it's nowhere near before once the hype died down.

I guess hype is all that matters if you're not fan service, but that's mainly due to Tosh's drawing skills at making everyone look bad ass.
