Well after the Azami arc closes on what seems like it'd be the end for the series…
-A new main villain shows up and bests soma's dad offscreen
-This main villain is Erina's secret half-brother and also secret apprentice of joichirio
-He leads the super secret organization of "underground chefs" who don't play by the rules
-They use ridiculous cooking methods such as the one in OP which don't even make sense
-Barely any focus on actual cooking, most of it is done offscreen and maybe it's creation is talked about for half a minute after the fact
It's just overall a massive trainwreck.
