Now Erina is angry with her mother because she tried to throw out her from the tournament, even if souma says it is something more than anger, but since until now they havent said anything about the situation between Erina and het mother Mana everything is possible, such quality writing.Her mother abandonedSo In the span of a single chapter, Erina became the "ice witch", a worse version of what she was before the introduction of Azami from Megumi's speech. Also in the chapter 301 Erina had a shokugeki against Takumi and without showing the dishes she won within 3 pages. Takumi tries her dish and says that she is the 0th seat, similar to the BS that happened in bleach with Yammy.Erina tries the dish that she makes and throws it in the trash saying that "its not worthy of the god tongue" (azami mentality) and goes away without saying a word to her supposed friend who she is avoiding from the start of the competition.
Moreover it seems that she has never been serious before and now she seems to be much stronger than Eishi , even if we hadnt any development about her cooking skill. I dont know where she did found the time to train as she had her headmaster responsibility too,but the 2 timeskip that we had in the span of 18 chapters did the trick.
Chapter 302 Megumi declare that she will not permit asahi to keep bothering Erina if she manages to beat him.
She oneshot the noir opponent that was considered one of the top 5 in this tournament in 5 pages.
Chapter 303 Asahi beat her 3-0 in 6 pages.
He request erina hand to her mother, she tell that if he can win the tournament he can espress any desire.
Erina as usual(in this arc) doesnt say anything about this and let it pass showing that she has no will.
Also Eishi the former 1th seat was invited to Blue but lost to asahi after not even 7 pages without even showing his dish. Asashi uses his extraterrestrial power and absorbs Eishi's "superpower".
