    Of course it was going to be the Polar Star dorm. These Nakiri kids and beneficiaries clearly have no where else to go. It really shouldn't even take Azami long to find them there unless the Polar Star Dorm is somehow politically special due to Isshiki's influence as a member of the Elite 10.

    Speaking of Isshiki, Nene most definitely suspects him of plotting something.

    You know, the more seriously they treat Azami, the less seriously I can take him. I mean, now he's swinging katana around for no reason.

    Fucking 100 points for Alice! Great job! It's so nice to see that the two of them care for each other so much.

    Also it's cool that Erina escapes from Azami before Souma even did anything. This gives me hope that she will be more than just some damsel in distress this arc. If I'm right, Souma help will be more about giving her morale boost to stand up to her father herself.

    Speaking of Souma, his answer is so like him. He didn't even had to hear the back story, he already knew what he had to do. Azami better watch out!


    Next chapter:

    "Sorry Erina, but we don't have enough rooms, you'll have to share with Souma."

    I don't see it as anything different from what Senzaemon does. The Nakiri family clearly believes in training the body along with the mind to further cooking ability.

    I could buy that if he was using bokken or something, but a real katana makes him look like he's trying way too hard to be hardcore.

    That fucking sword scene, you really can't take it seriously :catskully

    Great job Alice and Hisako :catsalute

    Polar Star is so off grid (it finances itself and all since they won all that land) most people don't know that it exists. Like one older janitor remembered what it used to be. Others were surprised that there even was a dorm at the school :hm

    Of course that should be no problem for Azami, he definately knows about it. But if they are that independent, he shouldn't be able to touch them there. I just don't know how much that is supposed to help when Erina is going to school anyway.

    I am at chapter 4.

    Souma isn't a pitiful/coward main hero.

    He has that punk/cocky attitude. Good. :dionod

    I mean it would be one thing for newer students not to know but Azami was a 3rd seat when Joichirou and Gin were 2nd and 1st seats respectively. Both were residing in the polar star dorm so Azami should know where it is and go there if he thinks Erina is present.

    As you said, it does seem pretty pointless since Erina has to go to class anyway and father of the year should obviously be waiting for her there too.

    You seem pretty active in starting new manga. :maybe

    What's good about souma is that he has the skills to back it up.
    And he is more confident than cocky imo. :nonon

    This sounds very plausible considering the stupid amount of power the elite 10 have.

    Oh, I didn't mean the students. School officials didn't know about it when Soma asked them where to find it.

    '' True Gourmet swordfighting. It greatly resembles excellent paintings, sculptures and music. Gourmet swordfighting is just like that. Only a few select people should share it's true worth, because that's the only thing that should be called Gourmet swordfighting. Everything else isnt swordfighting...it's childsplay. '' :LOS

    Bokken cant be used for true Gourmet swordfighting, dontchu plebians know? :pek

    PSD wagon going fast and strong.

    Anyway nice chapter, don?t care much about Azami honestly. And Souma reacted just as people expected.

    Also dat rescue squad with Alice as leadaa:ryoma

    About the PSD being independent, didn?t the old lady said that Durring Jouichiro and Doujima?s generation, those two managed to make it like an "independent nation"? You know getting ways to get their own resources and stuff? If Isshiki is maintaining that with his E10 rights, I wouldn?t be surprised if Azami can?t touch them there.

    unless he goes "They kidanpped my child" route.

    But 6/10 of the E10 > Isshiki, so if they really wanted, they can do whatever they want with Polar Star Dorm. I just won't buy it if they do have the power to dismiss the Director but can't touch Isshiki
