At the start of the twenty-fourth episode of Food Wars (the final episode of season 1!), we see a memory of when Joichiro tells Soma to not lose to anyone else until he beats him.
Megumi’s group has finished being judged, and Megumi moves on to the next round!
In Group B, Alice, Hisako, Takumi and Megumi passed. Isami was the first to not move on.
And meanwhile in Group A, Hayama and Soma are facing off! Hayama just unveiled his flavor-bomb dish!
His dish was originally devised by Paul Bocuse, a preeminent French chef.
And, amazingly, Hayama was able to incorporate fresh holy basil, an incredibly hard ingredient to procure and cook as it degrades very quickly.
The judges want Hayama to work for them after he graduates, but he replies that he only fights for Jun ^.^
Hayama’s dish scores 94 points, leaping him into first place.
Soma seems undeterred, though.
Because he has his own flavor-bomb dish! An omelet filled with spice-infused curry.
Similar to Hayama, Soma also included a special ingredient – mango chutney. Soma’s mango came from the Polar Star garden!
Although Soma has had numerous failures in the past, he has learned from all of them.
It’s truly a battle between the two students who aim for the top spot at Totsuki.
The judging is over, and Soma loses to Hayama by 1 point, placing him in second.
But wait! If this was an official shokugeki, Soma would actually be the victor because he has more higher points than Hayama does.
The judges fight over whose dish is the best.
There are diamonds in this Totsuki class.
Polar Star throws a party for everyone who participated and supported their friends in the Autumn Elections! ^.^
Erina stays in her office and works, though.
Megumi and Soma have a moment together, alone on the balcony.
Others watch ^.^ Nikumi is a little jealous.
Soma wants to be better, he wants to get to the top.
We really hope you liked Season 1 of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma!!! ^.^
