Soma looking real shady in the school hallway at night. I bet the key he gave that person was the key to his restaurant. No clue what he's trying to get though. As for who that person was, I'm going to make a wild guess and say it's probably

I'm ready to be proven wrong. Bring on the next episode!

It's ironic that 5 of the 8 students from the Autumn Elections including the 3 finalists failed horrendously. Hisako was with Erina. Subaru was who knows where. Takumi had the biggest success.


Made Dragon suggested Nao - makes sense given their freaked out reactions lol.

But wasn't Nao still at school eating Soma's buns when someone was in the restaurant? Unless there was some time jump and they moved on to the next day, which wouldn't make much sense. Soma also gave the keys to somebody earlier in the episode.

He mentioned to Megumi to expect no sleep, they're gonna pull an all nighter - so unlikely a time shift.

Nice to see that Soma always comes with something different. A flash of inspiration, if i put it that way, is his trademark, or his thing. As for that one part, my guess, it's Subaru. It's him, is it?

I'm glad that CR got this first rather than Sentai. It's already bad that they got Classicaloid 2nd and Himouto! Umaru-Chan R and if this were also not featured here, well words would fly.

Kind of a shame they didn't fit the witch girl eating a pork bun in the background of a few more shots.

Finally caught up on the first 3 episodes, my thoughts:

It's great to have this show back finally. the 2 cour is great news, but really the reason I love this show is how unpredictable it is. I find almost all shows this season and last were terribly predictable, I'm happy to see they maintained that part of the show into a 3rd season. As others have mentioned there are some very notable changes. The one that stands out most to me is that the pacing has completely changed. It seems very fast paced as if they're rushing to fit everything into the season. I feel like we're missing out on a ton of the more enjoyable scenes you might only see in the manga. The addition of CGI scenes seems lazy, but doesn't bother me that much so far.

I thought the Erina VA change would be devastating, but it seems alright so far. They both have the same kind of voice, but I find that Risa really captured the magical tsundere side of Erina in a captivating way. As it is currently, Erina's cheeky side is much too tame, I liked Risa's flustered Erina, I hope to see it return some day.

Good to see the characters again, it took me 2 episodes to recall what an amazing cast of characters they managed to assemble. I have no idea why Isami is huge again though....Seems to me Soma is up to some spying, let's see where this goes. Poor Megumi along for the ride!

The season 2 OVAs were just subbed a moment ago. I highly recommend watching them, or at least the second one since that's the one that's relevant to the start of this latest episode.


May I ask where?

I can't seem to find it on CR nor HiDive. And, well, wanna check to make sure before I dive into the messy world of fansubs.

Fansubs. Sorry. OVAs rarely get licensed for some reason.

You know, the Chinese stand wasn't even an arc, it was essentially filler until the next arc that only lasted a couple chapters. Yet somehow, they managed to take half an episodes worth of content and stretch it out into 3 episodes. At this rate the anime won't have time to do anything but reveal the central arc. Are they planning on having a 4th season and this is just filler while the manga finishes up the central arc?

Episode 4

And this episode is exactly why Food Wars is so great, seeing Soma putting his hard work and innovation into action, and always finding that edge that others fail to see. While he's not able to compete with Kuga straight-up, there are other ways to win as he exposed the problem with the long lines, and used curry in a meatball on a mapo tofu dish that got everybody rushing over. Tomita was quite a big help providing the tables, and it's great to see Subaru back and more matured since their Shokugeki. Even so, the traffic is still overwhelming when Ikumi, Takumi, and Isami come over to lend a hand. Just an incredible episode that is.
