At the start of the nineteenth episode of Food Wars, we see Erina and Isshiki debating about something in a dark board room. Wait, is this an Elite Ten meeting?
It is! And they’re discussing whether or not Soma should be invited to an event. Erina is objecting to his invitation, while Isshiki is defending his credentials and accolades.
Another Elite Ten member, Eizan Etsuya, also thinks Soma is worthy of an invitation.
The next day there is a huge announcement. The covering on a billboard comes off and we see that there is an announcement for the Autumn Elections. It has the names of the students who are invited to participate!
The selected students are divided into two groups, A and B. Thankfully Soma and a majority of the Polar Star members were accepted ^.^
The Autumn Elections also have announcers! The main announcer is a really cute student named Kawashima Urara. All of the guys love her, but the girls are quite envious of her…
Unfortunately, a couple guys are saying mean things about Megumi – how they can’t believe that she was invited.
Thankfully, a serious, pro-women girl protects Megumi and scares them off.
But when she finds out that Soma, a boy, had helped her in her shokugeki against Shinomiya, she leaves angrily.
Erina has an admirer, who likes to watch Erina from afar.
The Polar Star members receive a letter for the Autumn Elections. The topic for the cooking tournament will be curry!
Soma remembers his dad talking about one of his school friends, who is now a professor at Totsuki, who studied curry. He and Megumi try to find her, but her office is in the middle of nowhere (and is very shabby).
As soon as Soma tells professor Shiomi that he’s Joichiro’s son, she punches him!
Joichiro had made Shiomi be his taste tester of his disgusting creations…
Shiomi’s assistant is another first-year student named Hayama Akira.
Hayama is a master of not only curry, but all things relating to spices. Just as Erina has the God Tongue, Hayama has the God Nose.
Hayama can cook without looking. His nose can tell when a dish is ready.
Hayama remembers how Soma told everyone that he’ll take the top spot at at Totsuki. But Hayama differs. He acclaims that only the chef who has mastery over spices can climb to the top spot at Totsuki.
The chef to get to the top spot at Totsuki will be him, Hayama.
And Hayama tells Soma that he’ll show his dominance at the Autumn Elections, as both he and Soma are in the same hall.
