Shokugeki No Soma Chapter 78-79 – Within The Demon’s Grasp

Shokugeki no Soma chapter 79 - within the demon's grasp

In the end there was nothing Takumi could have done once becoming ensnared in Subaru’s web

Subaru is immensely more dangerous than I had initially expected, it is one thing to research a person and foresee the dish they will make based on that research but it totally another thing to predict their actions under pressure based on their individual characteristics and experiences. For Subaru to be able to entrap Takumi so completely, the ability he has in analysing a person and extrapolating defining features in them enabling him to trace their movements even before the person acts, what a dangerous ability it is which Subaru has cultivated.

I love how these dishes of Isami, Takumi, Alice and Megumi were presented and the emotion and meaning those dishes embodied. The Aldini brother rivalry was a charming quality Isami and Takumi share between each other, they go hard at each other inside the kitchen and outside trying to out do the other, but the emotion driving them is the love they have for each other and the hopes that they will continually keep challenging the other and consequently keep moving forward when it comes to cooking. Alice’s dish was a spectacle to look at and the innovative design, presentation and preparation of the dish was completely phenomenal. I can’t wait for Akira and Souma’s dishes to be judged next issue =D.
