Guy: Even though it's only the preliminaries...Everyone's really fired up!
Guy: Yeah! This is the first time I see this place so packed.

Guy: ...Hm?
Guy: One chair is still empty...?
Guy: You're right...Just who will seat there---

p6
Etsuya: Welcome,
Etsuya: By the way...
Etsuya: I'm sure I told you the students would begin cooking at 11 A.M....
Natsume: Are you saying that knowing fully how hard it is for us
Natsume: To open even 1 minute in our schedule...?
Natsume: Are you, Eizan-kun?
Text:{

Guy: Eeh!! You've got to be kidding me!?
Guy: O...One of those sisters is a judge!!?

p7
Natsume: Good grief...
Natsume: I came here led by Eizan-kun's cajolery, but...
Natsume: Will mere students be able to really please me?
Etsuya: Keh,
Etsuya: You could've just given us money.
Natsume: Did you say something?
Etsuya: No,
Etsuya: Please enjoy this Autumn Election until you're satisfied, Natsume-sama.
Text: The sisters Natsume and Orie are Haubii Foodstuff's founder's grandchildren,
Text: They both entered the curry industry after appearing in the aforementioned company's product's package
Text: And eventually ended up climbing to the top of the company...
Text: They reign over the curry market with an annual income that's said to be of 200,000,000,000 yen,
Text: Which is what led her to be called the "Curry Queen"---
Guy: To think they brought someone like her...
Guy: Tootsuki...No,

p8
Guy: Eizan-senpai...
Etsuya: Some words please.
Natsume: Ok, ok.
Guy: Is too amazing...!!
Natsume: ---Listen well.
Natsume: This country's curry industry went through a great expansion during the post-war period...
Natsume: By now, curry has completely matured and became something loved by all citizens! This current state...
Natsume: Bores me.
Natsume: I'm looking for it! As a manager, as someone who loves curry
Natsume: I'm looking for an idea that will open up Japanese curry's future---
Natsume: Now, show me
Natsume: A curry dish that will make me shudder...

p9
Guy: Th...The bar is way too high...
Guy: Can we actually bring out a dish that will satisfy her!?
Guy: Something that will satisfy a person that knows all kinds of curry...!?
Man: ...Huhmm.
Old Man: Hmm...
Natsume: ---Oh...
Natsume: It looks like we have some courageous kids here.
Ikumi(thinks): It doesn't matter who are the judges...
Ikumi(thinks): I just have to show it!
Ikumi(thinks): My answer
Ikumi(thinks): For this curry dish!!

p10
Voice: Oh, Nikumi!
Voice: She's frying the pork belly before boiling it!
Voice: The smell of meat being fried is really too intense...!
Voice: Aah...! The spices' aroma is mixing in too.
Voice: It's stimulating my brain directly!
Sign: Tootsuki Academy Teaching Staff Seats
Chapelle: She's using..."Sichuan Pepper".
Chapelle: It's a spice with a fresh aroma, an almost numbing spiciness, and that serves to remove the meat's bad smell.
Chapelle: Moreover, she stopped milling it when it was "coarsely ground".
Jun: Yes...When you make it into powder, the aroma rises easily but it also gets scattered easily.
Jun: She understands that very well...!
Kanichi: Nikumi...
Kanichi: You've grown up so splendidly...!

p11
Kanichi: Wooooh!! Nikumiii! I'm watching you!
Box: He's like a dad who went to watch her daughter's athletic meet.
Ikumi(thinks): I...Ignore him!
Ikumi(thinks): Now...How are the others doing?
Ikumi(thinks): There are many guys who can't cook properly after getting scared from that speech...
Ikumi(thinks): Hm?
Ikumi(thinks): He was...Nakiri Alice's aide---
Aide: ...Alright,
Aide: I'm overall done with the preliminary arrangements...
//Wait wha...!!!!!? Alice's aide was BANDANA GUY!!!!!!

p12
Ikumi(thinks): Wha...!? What's with him!?
Ikumi(thinks): His facial expression changed completely!

p13
Guy: He's preparing one spiny lobster after another!
Guy: Woooooh, that's some exciting knife technique!!
Ikumi(thinks): Tch...The audience's eyes went to him in a second!
sd: Oooooh
Ikumi(thinks): It's this side now! The kouji user... //kouji: mold grown on rice, etc. as a starter to make sake
Ikumi(thinks): Sakaki Ryouko!
Guy: She's so beautiful.
Guy: Dufuh...Long black hair.
Girl: Ryouko-oneesama...
Box: Ryouko's secret fans.
Ikumi(thinks): The "rice malt" made by fermenting steaming rice with yeast
Ikumi(thinks): Is one of the ingredients of miso, amazake, shiokouji, and other things.
Ikumi(thinks): Sakaki Ryouko's greatest specialty, "shiokouji", is a spice that works on the other ingredients starch and proteins
Ikumi(thinks): And serves to improve the flavor and make the food texture softer.
Ikumi(thinks): It's also usable for curry!
Ikumi(thinks): Just how will she use it---?

p14
Voice: Black!?
Voice: What...? It's not shiokouji!?
Voice: She's bringing out something else!
Voice: Hm...!?
Voice: It can't be, that is---!!
Ryouko: !
Ryouko(thinks): As I though...This preliminaries' real favorite is him...

p15
Voice: Hayama Akira!
Voice: His main ingredient is sea bream...
Voice: ...Only the head!?
Ryouko(thinks): ---I see,
Ryouko(thinks): He's trying to make a "Fish Head Curry"!
Big Text: Fish Head Curry
Text: A curry dish original from Singapore,
Text: It's a dish where by using the entire head of a white flesh fish you can fully enjoy the raw flavor of the fish.

p16
Voice: Next...He's adding baking soda...
Voice: And yogurt to the baking powder he had sieved.
Voice: It's naan!! He's trying to make naan.
Teacher: He's preparing it with naan rather than rice...Well...That's pretty normal.
Teacher: He's professor Shiomi's first disciple...I was expecting a more original dish.
Chapelle: ...
Teacher: Didn't he become confident that he didn't have to use a deliberate display of originality with his dish?
Jun: ...No,
Jun: That naan,
Jun: Maybe---
Akira: !

p17
Akira's sd: Shhhh...
Akira(thinks): It's just what you think, Jun...My cooking
Akira(thinks): Starts here!
Voice: He left the naan fermenting...
Voice: He's back to preparing the curry!
Voice: To bring out the aroma...He added lemongrass!
All: !!?
Voice: Fuhooh... The stinging freshness that mixed with the viscous coconut milk.
Voice: This refreshing feeling stimulates the appetite...!
Voice: Wow...! What's going on here!?
Voice: Even though there's this many spices' aromas filling the place
Voice: I can identify the smell that comes from Hayama's pot in an instant!!
Voice: That's the proof that his exquisite mixture is making the best of the spices' strong points!

p18
Voice: Like this...There's no way Hayama isn't passing as #1---
Thought: Whoa...!?
Thought: This fragrant smoke that tickles my nose...!
Voice: It's Ibusaki!!
Thought: ...That's right! Smoking is also an approach to bring out the "aroma"!!
Thought: He repainted the hall's atmosphere again!
Voice: Each and every one of them are showering at us with their techniques!
Voice: To think only 4 will survive...

p19
Natsume: ......Hmm...
Natsume: Well...It seems like this will be somewhat entertaining.
Natsume: So? Who are you recommending, Eizan-kun?
Etsuya: Hmm...Let's see,
Etsuya: Choosing someone to recommend is hard, but...
Etsuya: There's one man whose real ability I want to find out.
Akira(thinks): ......So...How's he?
Ikumi(thinks): What's he doing!?
Thought: How's Yukihira Souma---?

p20
Ikumi(thinks): He...
Ikumi(thinks): He's asleep? (cd: So skillfully on that chair...)
Souma(thinks): It's here,
Souma(thinks): Now's a good time!!
Cutlery: Are you ok, Souma...!? This pot's content...Shouldn't be normal!!
