At the start of the third episode of Food Wars, we meet Megumi Tadokoro ^.^ A shy girl from the mountainous regions of Japan. Megumi’s hometown is very small; the whole town supports her in her cooking dream.
Unfortunately, Megumi just received another failed exam, and is one failure away from expulsion!
It’s the first day of the new semester. The headmaster hosts an announcement for the incoming and returning students.
The school’s headmaster is known as the mafia don of culinary cuisine.
The headmaster instills fear in everyone’s hearts as he recollects that less than a dozen students graduate from Totsuki after three years.
But, with an inspirational aire, the headmaster concludes his speech by shouting “It should be you!”
The next speaker is the only student that passed the transfer exam. It’s Soma!
Although we thought Soma did not pass Erina’s test, he is here, and he is now a student! Soma’s speech is anything but compatriot towards his fellow students. Soma says that this school is just a stepping stone for him, and that he looks forward to working with everyone for the next three years.
The other students become infuriated ^.^
Soma goes back to the waiting room and finds Erina. She is horrified that Soma is there before him. She rejected him, so how is he here!?
Soma vows to make Erina say that his cooking is delicious ^.^ We find out that Erina’s grandfather, who is the headmaster of Totsuki, secretly watched Soma’s transfer exam as well as tasted his dish; the headmaster knew that Soma was special, not only in cooking but also for Erina.
Megumi is horrified of that new student, Soma, and decides to stay clear of him. She can’t risk befriending him as it might bring her closer to expulsion.
In ths first class of the semester, Soma is the only person who still needs a cooking partner ^.^
The other students really detest Soma for his speech.
The cooking class begins! The pairs need to recreate a classic french dish. Soma and Megumi’s dish is going smoothly. The two leave their cooking station momentarily.
When they return, they find their dish sabotaged! Someone has spilled a huge amount of salt, thus ruining their creation! What are they going to do? Time is running out.
Soma isn’t worried, and he reassures Megumi that everything will be fine. “We’re cooking pros before we’re students,” Soma says.
Students have begun bringing their dishes to the professor for judging. The mean students that ruined Soma and Megumi’s dish are sneering when, all of sudden, Soma and Megumi present their dish. Everyone is shocked!
Soma reveals that he used honey to quickly soften the meat.
The professor gives the pair an A, but wishes he could give them a higher score.
Megumi is really happy that she wasn’t expelled. She’s really thankful towards Soma and believes that he’s a special chef.
To celebrate, Soma gives one of his “unique” concoctions for Megumi to try ^.^
