Tōtsuki Culinary Academy: Allies and RivalsEdit
Sōma is one of Etsuya's rivals ever since Sōma stopped the rise of Mozuya's Tokyo branch, a consultee karaage store of Etsuya. He appears to deeply hated Sōma for doing this, that he sent Subaru Mimasaka to get rid of him from Tōtsuki. In fact, his hatred is so deep that he took delight in delivering the message of shutting the Polar Star Dormitory himself to Sōma. He even tried to make Sōma, in more than one occassion, submit to his will through rigging the Shokugeki and evicting the Polar Star Dorm students much earlier than what was originally planned. When all these attempts failed, he personally soon made it his mission to crush Sōma through his cooking. After losing his Shokugeki against Sōma, Eizan psychologically broke down from the shock, and he would always reminisce about the duel. He vows to pay him back for the embarassment he has caused him.
Mimasaka is known to be one of Etsuya's underlings. Etsuya approached him after noticing his ability, Perfect Trace.
