Continuing off the ending of the last arc, Sōma Yukihira already began taking on his multiple Shokugeki challenges, defeating Tetsuji Kabutoyama and two unnamed students at the Shokugeki Arena. Meanwhile, Senzaemon Nakiri announced to the Academy Board of Directors about the next school wide event, the Autumn Leaf Viewing. At that moment, Megumi Tadokoro looked up into the Arena stands to see Satoshi Isshiki, Erina Nakiri, and Etsuya Eizan watching over Sōma with two other members of the Elite Ten Council.


Manga: Chapter 131 to Chapter 134

As the Moon Banquet Festival wraps up its fifth and final day, Erina Nakiri encounters an unexpected visitor at her booth; her father, Azami Nakiri, who was previously excommunicated from Tōtsuki by Senzaemon Nakiri for reasons unknown. After throwing some insults at some notable patrons at her booth, including the Sendawara sisters and some other 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election Preliminary judges, Azami leaves once Sōma arrives at the stand only to be stopped at the front by Senzaemon himself. Though Senzaemon declares that Azami has no purpose to be on the campus after what he did, Azami presents a letter formally requesting that Azami become the new headmaster of Tōtsuki with the support of six of the current Elite Ten Council members including Eishi Tsukasa and Rindō Kobayashi. With the majority in agreement with Azami's request, Senzaemon is powerless to stop his son in law from usurping his position.
