...I wanted to punch Asahi's face in.

Still, I'll settle for Souma humbling him.

New chapter is up on Mangstream

It was a chapter but it was nice to see Souma be badass again and people sort of remember that this guy doesn't fear anything which is his real superhuman ability.

This would almost be a thrilling competition and a tense moment if Asahi wasn't dropped from outer space a handful of chapters ago with no build up with a seemingly invincible ability that exists specifically to be boring and invincible.

Gosh, had they worked on Souma's climb to this point too it might have some tension there because we'd have seen him claw his way here. He just... sort of fought once, helped Takumi and just got here out of nowhere. The pacing's been shit, the antagonist is nothing and the stakes don't feel like they matter.

Silver lining, it's almost over and maybe the manga will end before aliens invade.

Man, Asahi just can't help himself but to get the last word in.

I'll just wait and see how the judging goes. I hope that'll be a treat worth waiting.
 
Mangstream finally got the chapter up.

Oh boy, Asahi got the mass stripping from Mama Nakiri. How totally earned and not at all just a retread from the end of the last arc. No seriously he's a good character guys.

It's almost over, though I almost hope Jump just cancels it instead.

I really didn't like how the judges just said that they already had an idea on what Souma had based on something over a...what, at least a year ago judging?

As for Mama Nakiri...how likely is it that despite this Stripping Pulse...she's still puking her guts out?

It'd be great if there was some setback.

Something, I mean fuck, Asahi has boogie walked past everyone else without there even being a hint at drama.

The Azami arc was bad because the stakes were too high for Soma to possibly fail

And now they're non-existent since they didn't ever actually do the romance stuff until now. It's so goddamn devoid of substance that it's honestly impressive how awful this arc has been.
