At the start of the twelfth episode of Food Wars, it is time for Megumi’s Rainbow Terrine to be judged. How will her dish compare to Shinomiya’s?
Although it wasn’t part of the shokugeki’s rules, Megumi made the same dish that Shinomiya had assigned for his class.
The judges love it! Not only is her dish aesthetically pleasing but also delicious!
The judges imagine Megumi hand picking her vegetables in the mountains.
Megumi is really happy that the judges like her dish. Now, onto the judging. Each judge has one coin, which will be placed on either Megumi’s dish or Shinomiya’s. The winner is the chef with the most coins.
While the judges place their coins, Megumi reminisces on her past experiences at Totsuki – she doesn’t want to leave her friends or school.
No. There are no coins on Megumi’s plate 😦
Shinomiya has won. Megumi and Soma will both be expelled.
But wait! Although judging has concluded, Gin drops a coin in Megumi’s plate!
Shinomiya thinks back to his past – his time at Totsuki and in France.
At the beginning, it was really hard for Shinomiya – starting a restaurant in a foreign land. His sous chefs began questioning his recipes, and word spread around town that SHINO’s was not credible. Making matters worse, he could barely afford to pay his vendors.
In order to keep SHINO’s alive, Shinomiya stayed on knife’s edge. He viewed everyone as his enemy, including his own employees. He could only trust himself.
Although Shinomiya succeeded, he lost his path along the way.
Megumi’s dish reminds him of this.
Shinomiya’s own coin drops on Megumi’s dish.
The judges talk about how Megumi incorporated allspice in her terrine.
Not only for extra flavor, but Megumi added allspice to her dish because it aids in digestion. She realized that the judges had taste tested other students’ dishes throughout the day, so she wanted to make something that was gentle for all to eat.
Hinako rushes to Megumi’s plate and drops a tying coin down! It’s a draw, Megumi and Soma are staying at Totsuki! ^.^
Once out of the basement, Megumi’s phone finally receives cellular service. She has so many missed calls from Polar Star members. She rushes back to assure them that everything is okay.
She thanks Soma before she leaves ^.^
Finally alone, Soma’s anger and sadness shows itself. He lost.
Soma was the only one who truly wanted to win the Shokugeki.
The other Polar Star members are mad that Soma was so reckless, but are equally thankful that both he and Megumi made it back.
The camp goes on! ^.^
