Chapter 291: https://readms.net/r/shokugeki_no_souma/291/5534/1 Spoiler: 291 Oy vey... Really? I get the point of giving cool to over-the-top titles to characters in this series, but their techniques as well? Ugh, bad decision. Especially the sadistic one. Well, anyway, the methods of course are very unrealistic, but theoretically sound. IMO, however, the noirs don't deserve to be called superhumans, because of their reliance on overly unconventional tools. I guess that's where our protagonists get to shine over them? Using regular knives to produce the exact same dish (or better) of the noirs is what I'd call superhuman. Luckily, we'll finally get to see Megumi and Takumi in action next chapter (hopefully). And since Soma isn't teased in the final page, imma expect him to be the grand finale of the current gate test. Edit: Also, since I haven't addressed yet the questions of some on why Megumi and Takumi are in BLUE and certain other characters aren't, there are at least 2 possible reasons that I could think of: The other people were invited, but they declined or were unable to attend. The other people were not invited, possibly because they haven't made enough recognizable contribution yet to the culinary world outside of Totsuki. And I believe it was mentioned in a chapter before that that's one of the criterions to join.
