Crumbling Academy is the 139th chapter of Shokugeki no Soma.
Sōma Yukihira meets Takumi Aldini and Isami Aldini in a hallway after class and is told that Azami Nakiri, the newly elected director of Tōtsuki Culinary Academy will give an important speech. The three of them await the broadcasting. Erina, still residing in the Polar Star Dormitory, watches the speech from the television as well.
Azami broadcasts his first speech among the monitors of the academy. He has made two main reforms to create his "ideal world" for cooking. The first will be the dissolution of all research societies, seminars, cooking lessons and the like. The second will be a creation of an organization headed by Azami and the Elite Ten Council which he will temporarily refer as the "Central". This new organization will decide which food will the students prepare and the students in turn will refine them to Elite Ten-level dish. By doing so, he thinks there will be no future competitions and no dropouts.
Most gave negative reactions regarding the reforms, with Roland Chapelle commenting that the new policies will be equal to slavery and the chiefs of all the research societies and seminars were saddened by the news.
Finally, the news also reached the Polar Star Dormitory, with Etsuya Eizan arriving at the entrance of the dorm, ordering to cease its operations.
