Boost in Confidence!

Hello again, today I will review a manga chapter that was just recently released. This manga is called Shokugeki no soma. Specifically I will focus on chapter 69.

For those of you who haven’t read it. It is simply a cooking manga with competitions showcasing the different characters and how they evolve their own styles and strengths.


At this point in time of the chapter it involves a competition between two characters (Megumi and Ryou) as they battle it out to create the perfect ramen dish to serve to the judges.


The first few pages of chapter 69 explained the backstory for the character Ryou Kurokiba. It showcased him working in the restaurant (as a head chef) with his extreme personality, by bossing around the other chefs. He doesn't even hesitate as he scolds the chef and threatens to fire him. This backstory really explains the ruthlessness that Ryou portrays in his later cooking career.


As the backstory fades away, we are brought back to the kitchen arena and Ryou makes his feelings clear to Megumi. Stating that he dislikes seeing cooks getting along together. However, Megumi does not understand and tries to make him understand, however Ryou’s words really struck a cord with Megumi and she gains a great amount of motivation.


This then pushes Megumi to work intensely on her dish and finally she completes it. I find that this chapter really shows the rise in character for Megumi. Since the beginning Megumi hasn’t been the most confident, yet at the completion of this ramen broth it has yielded a much more asserted character.


This chapter really did push the story along, as well as to build the anticipation for the next chapter-The Tasting.
