We get to see the shokugeki issued by Soma on behalf of Megumi to illustrious chef Shinomiya. Only Soma cannot be the head chef, he can only be sous chef; Megumi’s skills were called into question, so Megumi must prove that she belongs at Totsuki.
Let the shokugeki begin! Soma has challenged Totsuki graduate Chef Shinomiya in order to prevent Megumi’s pending expulsion. However, thanks to a condition levied by Gin Dojima, the match turns in an unexpected direction! With such a foolhardy challenge, can Soma and Megumi win to survive another day?
I love this particular battle because it shows Soma’s versatility but Megumi’s ability as a chef. It shows her ability to not only cook but to cook well, even with a stupid instructor vilifying her skills. And it shows that Megumi has the capacity to be a great chef, no matter what anyone else says. Soma has seen this in her and he encourages her to not think of her competitor, but of herself; to focus on her skills and what she can do in this competition. I love it and I love him and Megumi!
