    Soma and his classmates go to a cooking camp for a series of culinary challenges - fail one and you’re expelled from the exclusive Totsuki Institute! Soma and Megumi are teamed up again, this time to use the natural surroundings of the camp to create a traditional Japanese dish, and Soma meets a pair of new adversaries: the Aldini Brothers. Eh… I think I’m about done with Food Wars.

Eh… I think I’m about done with Food Wars. Creators Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki have basically levelled out on what they can do in this series and are now repeating themselves. Soma and Megumi have to make a dish against the odds - done it before. Erina makes angry noises at Soma - done it before. Dull and arbitrary nemeses - done it before. Another shokugeki (food duel) is announced - done it before. So these guys are basically out of ideas and it’s only the third volume! There are just a couple of dishes to drool over and they weren’t that inspired compared to previous meals. That’s a minor complaint but it’s indicative of the staleness of the series. As if to add insult to injury, the book is only about 75% Food Wars as the last quarter is filled up with artist Shun Saeki’s dreary debut manga for Shonen Jump: Your and My Romance Counselling. It’s about a shy boy who declares his love to the wrong girl and all manner of “charming” misunderstandings follow. Saeki classes it up with several panels of underage girls in bikinis and upskirt shots. Garbage. The first volume of Food Wars is a fun read but I’d leave it at that - this isn’t a series that has the chops to go the distance. Food Wars Volume 3 is boring with little to offer - the quirkiness and originality is gone and what’s left isn’t worth bothering with.

It chronicles the journey that Soma and the rest of his classmates must take when they are invited to a "friendship" cooking camp. As always there a challenges twists and turns.

    We've now moved on to the unavoidable "school trip" that all manga set in learning establishments has to take, pretty early in the series too which surprised me. I think what I like most about this series is how it makes fun of shounen tropes. Pretty hilarious when one of the characters that's fighting with Souma says something like "until we meet again!" then you turn the page and they're sitting next to each other on the bus and Souma is like, "hey ... we meet again ..." 😆 I like this series; i We've now moved on to the unavoidable "school trip" that all manga set in learning establishments has to take, pretty early in the series too which surprised me.

    The volume ends just as it was getting good. If only the space allotted for the side stories was used to add one more main story chapter, and then it would have been a lot more substantial.

    This was an enjoyable volume that ended on a high peak, leaving one wanting to read the next volume soon. I would immediately do so, if I weren't also reading the Miracle Girls series right now. I would love to catch up on Food Wars ~ Shokugeki no Souma soon, and watch the anime as well. In the first part, Soma and Tadokoro pair up. We all know that Megumi is a weak cook on her own.

In the first part, Soma and Tadokoro pair up. We all know that Megumi is a weak cook on her own. Luckily, she works well as part of a pair. Her and Soma easily win the Nature Challenge. But, the second challenge finds them working separately, and Tadokoro gets expelled for slightly changing a recipe to better it. This upsets Soma, and he issues the head chef of that challenge a "shougeki" notice meaning that he wants to battle him one-on-one. If Soma wins, he demands that Megumi not be expelled from camp/school. This ends the main story of this volume. There is also an enjoyable short story about 2 friends that refuse to admit how they feel about one another. They end up telling one another they'll give each other romance advice. He pretends he wants to confess to another girl, but he cannot do it. She overhears him saying this to the other girl, and then, tells him she has a crush in someone. We know it's him, but he doesn't. She doesn't straight-out tell him, but her actions speak well.

    I really loved this volume which was the beginning of my two favorite arcs in the anime (adapted from this manga). The heart-warming nature, plus character development, of these two arcs are great stuff. Looking forward to them in the next volume or two. Closing out the volume were two short stories. One a funny scene that the anime briefly showed, and the other a completely unrelated short story. Unfortunately the short story had no ending. *Grumblegrumble* I hope the ending is in future volumes I really loved this volume which was the beginning of my two favorite arcs in the anime (adapted from this manga).

    Mmmm Mmmm How can a story about a culinary school be this exciting? I mean, I like fried fish as much as anyone, but I never thought a decision to use crackers for breading would be so rousing.

    I enjoy this series way too much. It is pure silliness, but I get sucked in every time by the likability of the characters and the over-the-top dramatics. This volume has an excellent back-up story to boot.

    Actually preferred this third volume to its predecessor, perhaps because the focus is moving more onto the food testing (gathering ingredients in a difficult situation and making a dish - HxH anyone?) and less on gratuitous shots of the female characters. I still don't really care for or have that good a grasp of the characters, but this volume got my attention once more on this series.

So the story is fairly cliched. The food and cooking portions are interesting and the recipes are certainly what’s keeping me interesting in this series. The rival is expected and so is the jerk teacher which is also expected. No surprises here. Characters: Soma is still the cliched hero of a Shonen Food/themed book this is and that’s all there is to say, not much of an arc or depth so far. The support characters continue to have some development with Megumi getting more than Soma in terms of her backstory. New characters fall into the archetypes for this genre with not much creativity here. Solid, safe and expected....but fun. Onward to the next book!

    And now it has become repetitive. The same thing that happens in the first and second volume happens here as well. I understand that the title is "Food Wars", so I am to expect a challenge every now and then, but it gets boring over time. You know there is always going to be the Shokugeki, the unexpected triumph of Soma and the fan service. The only plus point is that there are new recipes, but it isn't enough to hook me to this manga. And now it has become repetitive.

    Vol - 3 What a wonderful journey so far.. i just love this series i know when i finish it im going to be heartbroken because each book i pick up makes me want to read another one to see what happens next. Which coming from someone who usually likes the naruto battle style thing or the jojos bizarre adventure style its a little different.

    Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma!, Vol. 3 continues where the previous tankōbon left off and contains the next seven chapters (15–21) of the on-going manga series and two bonus chapters. The first-year students attend the cooking camp at the Tōtsuki Resort, but they must pass the strict assignments of the Tōtsuki alumni, who can fire and expel students for any reason. Japanese cuisine alumni Hinako Inui has the students work in pairs to cook a dish using only ingredients found on the premises.

Japanese cuisine alumni Hinako Inui has the students work in pairs to cook a dish using only ingredients found on the premises. Sōma Yukihira meets twin brothers Takumi Aldīni and Isami Aldīni, who had cooked at their uncle's restaurant in Italy. While the brothers cook a duck dish, Sōma uses Megumi Tadokoro's cracker snacks to make breading for his fish. Hinako passes both pairs but declares their internal competition a draw. For the evening dishes, they have to prepare fifty servings of their dishes for the bodybuilding club and other athletic groups. Sōma meets Gin Dōjima, the head of the Tōtsuki Resort and held the highest mark in his year and turned down offers to work at 800 restaurants. The next day, Megumi is fired by alumni Kojirō Shinomiya, but Sōma stands up for her and challenges Shinomiya to a shokugeki. This tankōbon is written by Yūto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki. It continues the narrative of the first year students in Polaris Dormitory and their time at the Tōtsuki Resort, which is more than a getaway, but a weeding out trip to eliminate students that are subpar. Megumi Tadokoro was such a student, but Sōma Yukihira challenges Kojirō Shinomiya in a Food War on her behalf. All in all, Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma, Vol. 3 is a wonderful continuation to a series that seems really intriguing and I can't wait to read more.

    Tsukuda, Saeki and Morisaki are back with the third volune of Shokugeki no Soma, covering chapters 15 trough 21, plus two extras. The hellish school camp begins, Soma and the rest of the Polar Star dorm (except the second year student Isshiki) are battling through the almost impossible tests, meeting new rivals along the way, like the Aldini brothers. This volume introduces many fan favourite characters like the previously mentioned brothers or Shinomiya, who's one of my favourites.

This volume introduces many fan favourite characters like the previously mentioned brothers or Shinomiya, who's one of my favourites. However, it can be kinda boring to some, consisting basically only of the quite similat tests. Though the new characters spice things up a little, it feels like this volume is quite slow paced and uneventful. Which is not the case. Many big things happen in this volume but they can kinda blend in togheter. You could almost say that the series so far is very formulaic. But it's a forumla that works and it's the characters that make it work. Included are also two bonus chapters. One very short, focusing on Takumi Aldini and an unreleated romcom one-shot. Presumably this one-shot has been both written and illustraded by Shun Saeki, which is easy to see if you're familiar with Saeki's work before Shokugeki *cough* *cough* Overall, this volume, while less exciting than the previous two, is still a fun time and sets up very interesting things to come.

    I was surprised to find so much of this volume taken up by a short story unrelated to the main one, but it was a genuine treat, early work by the artist for the series. Oddly, there was a clarification in the nomenclature for Italian restaurants included, because as a plot point one of the students comes from an Italian family. There is an error in one of the translations, though, as "Trattoria" doesn't really mean "cafeteria." "Cafe" might be closer, as the word means an informal restaurant, ap I was surprised to find so much of this volume taken up by a short story unrelated to the main one, but it was a genuine treat, early work by the artist for the series.

This story, with the students from an unusual nearby school being brought in to eat a meal, provided an unusual element that I've been told by a chef acquaintance is a real type of test used in cooking schools. Basically, if you want to make it in the real world as a chef, you need to be not only very good but very efficient. This manga series is keeping my attention, and I plan to keep reading it.

    Enter the school's obligatory field trip - except this one has trials built into it, where you get expelled if you could not complete it satisfactorily! Here we see the budding relationship between Souma and Tadokoro Megumi, as well as get introduced to his self-declared rival Takumi Aldini. This is a great volume as the challenges are both inventive and the execution done really well. There's also an unrelated young-love story attached at the end. That one was nice too.

    If you keep up to date with the manga on a weekly basis, this volume contains chapters 15 through 21, which is the beginning of the Hell Training Camp arc. The volume also includes the Takumi Aldini side story, "Cuoco in Italia" as well as Saeki Shun's WSJ debut Oneshot "Your and My Romance Counseling". As usual, it also comes with certain recipes featured in the chapters. Overall it's been a fun and great series so far. The artwork for the volume's cover is beautifully drawn.

    Although I like the whole thing, I find it somehow irritating how the protagonist is not really adding anything to his information base or his experiences. Just came to the school to beat them all with his little knowledge! makes you wonder what good get him with this school. If no one beat him soon I guess the manga will lose its popularity.
