Waiting one week for the episode really felt like an eternity. After Yukihira beat Hayama in episode 6 we were all excited to see what was going to go down in episode 7. Yukihira is not the only one that was facing a difficult opponent. You could say that Yukihira was lucky he was facing Hayama this time. Everything that went on with central distracted Hayama, and so he could not focus on his cooking. Even though he created a superb dish. Hayama was still unable to defeat Yukihira because he did not pour his soul into the battle. Although Yukihira won, it was highly unlikely that the rest of the rebels would win. They are all great chefs, but when facing the elite ten they stand no chance. How will they survive this all-out war against them from Nakiri Azami?
Shokugeki no Souma season 4 episode 7 review
We can see a few of the rebels who have been defeated at the beginning of Shokugeki no Souma season 4 episode 7. The defeated group includes Arato Hisako, Kurokiba Ryo, Nakiri Alice, Mito Ikumo, Isami Aldini, Ibusaki Shun, Aoki Daigo, Sato Shoji, Yoshino Ryuki, Sakaki Ryoko, and Marui Zenji. Everyone except Erina and Yukihira has been defeated and as such expelled from the school. Or so it seemed, Erina was worried about Megumi Tadokoro and Takumi Aldini. As they were the only ones left. However, Rindou-senpai went easy on them and gave them a simple normal challenge. She seems to be on a neutral side and just enjoying herself.
Declaration of war
Troubled with what to do, Yukihira proposes to the remaining rebels for them to take over the elite ten seats. Elite ten can do anything in the school, they are the reason for old director Nakiri’s expulsion and putting Azami in charge. I am not sure why they want on with Azami’s ideology, but perhaps that will be explained later. While trying to come up with other solutions. Erina decides to swallow her pride and go ask her father to rescind the expulsions. However, that was not enough. At which point Yukihira declared war on him, and asked him for an all-out shokugeki battle against his crew. This would mean that if they win they can do whatever they want, even if it means shutting down central. Of course, Azami rejected the idea, because it has nothing that would benefit him.
If you want to negotiate you have to have something to wager
-Nakiri Azami (in Shokugeki no Souma season 4 episode 7)
Saiba and Senzaemon arrive at the scene unexpectedly, it would seem that there is still hope for Yukihira’s team. Soumas dad Saiba proposes something that we have not seen yet in the show. A regiment de Cuisine is sort of team shokugeki. It’s time for them to prepare for the final battle. Saiba along with Sanzaemon and Dojima-senpai will be helping them in their special training. There’s a huge difference in a team shokugeki as compared with normal ones. Until all members of a team lose the battle goes on. And as for the major difference, you can help your teammates during their cooking. This could prove helpful or fatal.
The episode did not have any exciting fights, however, we did learn a lot about what we can expect in the future. The 4 remaining rebels will skip all of the other challenges and go straight to the final exam test site. Dojima, Saiba, and Sanzaemon will train them while they are going to the final exam place. At the ending of the Shokugeki no Souma season 4 episode 7 we saw Erina having doubts about facing her father. All I gotta say about this is that this season made her go from most hated to the most loved character. Erina is getting a lot of character development, all incorporated by her background story with her father and her slow progress towards becoming an independent person.
