Story: Tsukuda Yuuto
Art: Saeki Shun
Collaborator: Morisaki Yuki
Nao: Being by Erina-sama's side
Nao: And having her abuse me with her words is my unchanging dream...!
Nao: Just by thinking her God's Tongue will start vituperating-
Hisako: That has already been settled,
Hisako: Because I won that Shokugeki!
Nao: Yes...Certainly, after that...
Nao: I've only been able to look at her countenance with binoculars
Nao: And send her thirty letters daily.
Hisako(thinks): ...I should have forbidden that too.
Nao: However, if I surpass you in a big stage, such as this Autumn Election,
Nao: Erina-sama might have a change of heart...
Nao: I'm sure she'll want me by her side...!!
Box: Stalker Mentality
Voice: Next is Arato Hisako's dish, huh.
Voice: She's Erina-sama's secretary after all! She'll surely show us an amazing dish.
Hisako: Have some please---
Orie: The roux isn't very viscous but very juicy...
Orie: Maybe it's something close to a curry soup.
Osaji: Among the ingredients we have green onion, carrots, onion, cabbage...
Osaji: And "Mutton Meat"!
Asterisk: Meat from sheep less than a year old is called "Lamb Meat", if the sheep is older it's called "Mutton Meat"
Osaji: The smell of mutton meat is stronger than that of lamb meat,
Osaji: But she's removed that smell properly using spices...Or so it seems.
Orie: ......Bad smell...
Voice: Isn't the judges’ reaction a bit too shallow?
Nao(thinks): Hihihi...The aftertaste of my dish still remains in them.
Nao(thinks): With such an stimulating bad smell and taste---
Nao(thinks): The impact was so strong that the following dishes will inevitably be overshadowed by it!!
Star: To commemorate the release of JC volume (5) the "J Fresh Power Campaign" is underway!! Check Jump's Homepage => www.shonenjump.com
Nao(thinks): In other words, this is a "curse"...!
Nao(thinks): A curse directed to you! Arato-san...!!
Osaji: ...Oh well...
Osaji: Let's eat...
Shingo(thinks): This is...!?
Osaji: Andou-sensei? What's wrong?
Shingo's sd: Hoaaaaaaaaaaaah //LOL
Osaji: The Andou-sensei that's like a dead tree and always whispers things that aren't understandable is...
Osaji: I don't know why but he's swelled up like a kung fu movie actor!!
Osaji: Wh-Wh-Wh-Wh-What's going on!?
Osaji: This unique aroma...
Osaji: This is...
Shingo: Dong dang gui //Angelica acutiloba
Shingo: Senkyuu //cnidium rhizome
Shingo: Jiou //rehmanniae radix
Shingo: Shakuyaku //paeoniae radix
Shingo: A dish based on "Traditional Chinese Medicine" made by mixing four varieties of plants...
Osaji: Wh...When you say Shimotsu-to...
Osaji: You mean that dish that's said to have revived travelers on the verge of death as soon as they ate it---
Osaji: Ah...I get it now!
Osaji: Back then, she...
Osaji: Was "infusing" the spices!
Alice: Yes...That's her specialty,
Alice: Arato Hisako is---
Alice: A medicinal cooking expert
Box: Medicinal Cooking
Box: A way of cooking based on Oriental Medicine that mixes cuisine with medicine and pharmaceutics.
Box: It develops a systematic dietary regimen by using infused natural remedies and traditional Chinese medicines.
Hisako: Other than the 4 natural remedies I added kyouou, daiuikyou, and shouuikyou //I know these are "Wild Turmeric", "Star Anise" and "Fennel", but for the sake of a latter dialog I left them in their romaji form
Hisako: To make an original "Medicinal Spices Mix".
Hisako: I left the spices infusing about one hour to extract the medicinal components---
Hisako: Then, I put vegetables and the mutton meat in it and boiled them until they had a mellow tenderness.
Hisako: I finished the dish with shaoxingjiu and coriander to heighten the aroma.
Osaji: Hah----...! Come to think of it, the medicinal components of medicinal cooking are really similar to curry!
Osaji: Kyouou is "Wild turmeric"! Daiuikyou and Shouuikyou are "Star Anise" and "Fennel"...
Osaji: All of them are spices needed to make curry!
Orie: She noticed this and combined medicinal cooking and curry...
Orie: This is a dish no one but her can make...!
Hisako: This is my medicinal curry...
Hisako: The "Mutton Meat Shimotsu-to Curry".
Osaji: It's true...! It's going around me...!!
Osaji: The medicinal cooking's energy is going around my body!!
Orie: Delicious...! The mutton meat's strong body is made even better by the spices,
Orie: The vegetables' sweetness blends into the roux and gives it a mild flavor...!
Osaji: My body gets warm as soon as I eat the shimotsu-to!
Orie: Yes...Medicinal cooking is said to warm up the body, fill up the spirit...And
Orie: Cleanse body and mind!
Osaji: The way the aroma rises, the flavor balance...What a degree of perfection!! This isn't a dish a student can make, you know!?
Osaji: After eating this curry
Osaji: It feels like the previous dish was only about the impact!
Nao(thinks): N-No...No way!
Nao(thinks): All the judges were supposed to be my curry's slaves!
Hisako: This is for you.
Hisako: You'll understand after you eat it...
Hisako: The difference in pride between you and me!
Nao(thinks): Those were the origins of my cooking, but...
Nao(thinks): They are being washed away
Nao: Uwaaaah! Stop...
Nao(thinks): And cleansed---
Box: Sadatsuka Nao (White) //She's like Ryouko 2.0, not that I mind though
Box: Is born.
Box: And finished.
Nao: Huff huff...!!
Hisako: The Arato family---
Hisako: Is an ancient lineage of doctors of Chinese medicine,
Hisako: I sublimated all of its knowledge into cooking.
Hisako: I've been working hard since I was very young on it, all for Erina-sama.
Hisako: This is my "Medicinal Cooking".
Hisako: ---It seems that on the ancient Chinese Imperial Courts
Hisako: The emperor had a "dietist" which provided him with medicinal cooking.
Hisako: In my case the "emperor" is Erina-sama.
Hisako: Sadatsuka Nao...Your cooking is "self-centered",
Hisako: You are not qualified to serve Erina-sama.
Urara: Now, what is Arato Hisako's score!?
Hisako: You're an eyesore,
Hisako: Step back.
Urara: 92 points!!!
Voice: Uwoooh, she's in the 90's!!
Voice: She surpassed Sadatsuka's score like it was nothing!
Voice: As expected from a cook approved by Erina-sama!
Nao: Hisako-onee-sama...<3 // LOL, Nao is the best stalker ever XDD
