Hello, again, Eru13 here with spoilers for all Soma fans who just need something more.
This week, we had center color to commemorate the release of volume 3 (Souma really needs its second magazine cover soon, it deserves it...), talking about volume 3, the cover is cute nice, it features Megumi from the harvesting chapter, it's really colorful.
The color page is quite nice too, the theme is the Don RS' summer vacation and it features Megumi and Ikumi on swimisuits, ironically, Ikumi has a float, maybe she can't swim? That would be pretty interesting too XD, Souma and Kanichi can be seen too in the background but I know most of you don't care about that XDD
Let's go to the main point, the chapter starts with Alice talking about herself, she's Erina's cousin, it seems their fathers are brothers and Alice's mother is from Denmark, Alice also reveals that she lived together with Erina until they were five after which she went to Denmark to a research institute founded by her father which apparently emphasizes on researching cooking techniques and theories from a more chemical and physical point of view, I think that's pretty interesting, we needed a character like that too in the story.
Anyway, after that Alice tries to bitch about Erina and Souma, especially about Souma, saying that he can't take the top if he struggles with things like the last assignment, which brings the badass Souma moment of the chapter... Souma actually agrees with her, saying it was a close call and that he failed completely, but, here comes the interesting thing, Souma says he's now experienced failure which surprises Erina and makes Alice pout, talk about getting out of that XD.
Alice then leaves and the students are notified that their next assignment is in four hours, this one wasn't that important, it was more to remind the readers that the camp isn't over yet, it only shows all the important characters cooking rather hurriedly after which we jump straight to 4PM to the lobby where an announcement is to be made.
Doujima takes the mic and starts by saying that 352 students have dropped out so far and that 628 are left, after that, he makes a rather nice speech about what's needed to be a chef and gives a few words of encouragement to the students after which he drops the bomb, the last program of the camp will start...
Everyone reacts rather badly, the students are in serious despair, I mean, they are so close yet so far, but then a rather surprising thing happens, the last program is just a banquet to celebrate, Doujima congratulates everyone for clearing the camp's assignments and what awaits them is a rather luxurious reward, the banquet isn't just a normal banquet, it was prepared by the alumni, not bad for a reward, huh?
All of the survivors are quite happy and they start enjoying their food (seriously, there's a page with all the important characters just eating XD), after that Souma just thinks back and concludes that Tootsuki is way more interesing than he first thought.
And that's it, it was a rather curious chapter, it has some pages full of text and some others with little to no dialog, it's an enjoyable read even if it didn't have much action.
I personally like this kind of chapters a lot, it's nice to have a change of pace, besides, this rather long arc is now over, I'm really curious to see what will come next, will we jump directly to the election Doujima mentioned on last chapter or do the authors have something else for us? I guess we'll have to wait until next week.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the chapter, remember you can read my translations here http://mangahelpers.com/t/eru13 and the releases on casanova scans page http://www.casanovascans.com/ ... Oh, and as a special bonus, this video is from a Sakiyomi JumBang! chapter that came out about a 3 or 4 weeks ago, around 7:30 it has the first part of Soma's vomic, watch it, it's quite nice.
