Souma would the correct spelling (if we are talking about the strait Japanese to English), but in translations silent sounds (but not really silent) tend to be translated differently.

Like Tokyo is really Toukyou.

That's true, but I have always preferred "Soma" or the different translations. I guess it just looks easier to me.

I love seeing all the comments of people that want to see more Erina, and yet the Autumn elections is the arc with the least amount of Erina in it. Assuming they animate the Stagiaire arc that still adds up to very little Erina time. Though I do hope they can get all the way to the Moon Banquet Festival Arc, but I doubt they'll get that far. Maybe we'll get to see up to the Autumn Leaf Viewing before they cut us off and we have to wait for the third season to cover the Moon Banquet Festival onward. Regardless I'm super excited to see one of my favorite shows/mangas getting another season!!!!!

I've been reading the manga for over a year now, so i know what's going to happen and all, but I still can't wait for this. Really hopes it ends right at the moment when Souma comes back to the dorm at the end of his stagier.! It'd be the most badass moment ^.^

I'm not Lorreen, but I'm Japanese haha. It has to do with pronunciation. It's very subtle, but you're supposed to pronounce Souma with a longer "o." To be exact, you're supposed to double the length. You might see Japanese romaji spelled with an "ō" or "ô." It's another way of indicating that the "o" is pronounced longer. Again, it's subtle and there really isn't much distinction from a regular "o" and a "ou" since double the length of "o" is still pronounced under a second. Sorry for the bad explanation

No, it's all good. I mean, I do get the reasoning behind it, but I suppose I am just being picky for no reason..

That's great, as when it airs it will be under a year since the last season aired.
Nice to eventually know who filled the last qualifying spot too
