I grinned immediately when Soma made the observation that there were many quaint looking buildings in that huge forest. I was actually asking the same questions that he was asking. Why are there so many buildings? I know it’s a top notch food academy but surely the academy don’t require that many buildings. Perhaps these buildings cater for specialised equipment.
Soma had to make a dish out of nothing as soon as he got to the dormitory. I would feel sorry for him as he doesn’t seem like he can get a break, but he adapts very well to the situation.
It’s pretty cool how he was able to make that burger out of nothing and Fumio approved straightaway. We don’t see her visualised reactions but we do see what she looked like when she was in her younger days. She was quite a beauty and very demure. I went from admiring her youth to laughing my socks off the next moment when Fumio got caught up in the moment and tried to kiss Soma. She mistook him for her childhood love. Haha. It was really funny. =D
Poor Megumi is the one student who can’t get a break. She says that she dislikes Soma but I don’t really think this is the case. It’s more that she can’t really cope with his strong personality. Still, I didn’t think anyone could experience exhaustion by reacting to food dishes that Soma concocts. Haha. In some ways, Megumi is similar to Mayumi, Soma’s classmate from episode one. They’re both similar in the fact that they allow Soma to force feed them good and bad food. Haha.
It was really cool that the rest of the dormitory wanted to organise a welcome party for Soma. Initially I was suspicious as I assumed that they were all out to get him, especially the naked chef, aka, Satoshi Isshiki. They all appear to be genuine and were having fun trying out each other’s food. The elderly lady was very understanding and didn’t give any of them a ticking off. It seems like she’s the type who is strict but fair. That and Soma made her taste buds dance with joy so it’s only natural that she would be lenient as far as Soma was concerned.
I grew more wary of Isshiki near the end. It was pretty amusing when he got naked and wore an apron. I have no doubt that all the lady viewers would have enjoyed that moment. Haha. Anyway, when he concocted that last dish for Soma I actually thought he added some kind of bad stuff. However, it turns out that it tasted absolutely delicious.
Then it turns out that Isshiki is actually one of the Elite Ten of the academy and he’s in the Seventh Seat. He’s in the Seventh Seat whilst Erina is in the Tenth Seat of the Elite Ten and Student Council. I really wasn’t expecting him to be part of the elite, and I certainly wasn’t expecting him to outrank Erina as I somehow assumed that she was number one.
Good luck Soma!
Thanks for Reading. =)
