In regards to joichiro's quote, it had been shown throughout the series to mean different relationships to different characters. Ryu cooks for Alice, Akira cooks for Jun, and Shinomiya for his mother...you dont need to be in love with the person to cook for them as has been shown. For joichiro it was his wife but that doesnt have to mean the same for soma or for everyone! And the wife doesn't necessarily have to exist or be Erina, just someone who matters to you...
Tsukada said that he wanted soma and erina married in an interview before le dessert and the fanbook were released and as someone whose read both it mentions nothing about them being married the only confirmed relationship is hayama. The author can say all he wants but unless its backed by paper it means nothing, he also said that in the beginning he favored megumi for soma and that only changed with the coming of the team shokugeki and the noirs. He had several opportunities to address and establish romantic relationships throughout the series but never did which makes me assume it was never a priority for the author which I can understand as it was not tagged for romance but shounen. I can say I want to turn into a bird and fly to the moon all I want but it won't happen will it? The point is the open ending relationship is a good thing so no one is bummed about the loss of their ship...the bigger problem of the series lies in loss of potential:
1. We don't see soma beat his father
2. We don't see soma run or take over Yukihira's
3. No more cooking in a cooking manga/ anime?
4. Chainsaws and magic knife skills, like really?
5. We never see soma beat erina or have her take back her words of his food being gross/ acknowledge him as a chef
6. Nakiri drama once again, is it shokugeki no Nakiri? It's always about the Nakiris what about Soma and his growth?
7. Weird dysfunctional family part 2
8. Regression of characters
These are plot holes that need to be fixed first before any relationship can occur I have nothing against any ship I just am more concerned about the big picture it's just so disappointing that such a great series should suffer these kind of drawbacks. Fingers crossed for the anime, I'm scared to watch the last season

Has anyone thought about adding a link to the Soma Rap on Rustage's youtube channel to this wiki? It seems like it ought to be on here.
Who does Soma end up with in the end? I thought the author said it was Erina Nakiri, but some people say its up for interpretation. Anyone know a decisive answer? (Personally, I wanted Megumi to end up with Soma, but I guess that's not happening.):(
Ahhhhh, 2 enemies that fell in love 🥰

For all the fans of this ship I understand your frustration and sympathize but unfortunately this is the reality of the canon, this manga is a shonen not a romance regardless of anyone's wishes the issue lies with the author. And there is no reason you can't still ship them even if its not in the manga/anime/fanbook you are free to ship who you want (the ending was left open ended for that purpose, so fans can imagine their perfect future ending). The page is meant to be accurate for the anime it is for the canon details especially for everyone who has read/watched or have yet to do so for the series, so the pages need to be true to it/reflect that. If you want romance then this is the wrong series to look for it in, there are a ton of romance series elsewhere the heart of this series is cooking.
