Shokugeki-no SOMA 55

p1
Yua: Well then, on to the next contestant! Display your dish---
Yua: !?
Star: The latest JC volume (6) and the novel will be on sale on February 4th!!
Yua: White...!?
Yua: The roux, the ingredients...Everything is white!!
"Shokugeki-no SOMA"
Makito: This noodles...Are Udon!
Makito: And they were kneaded with the curry spice, "cumin"!
Makito: In short, this is...
Makito: Your own unique "curry udon", isn't it?
Star: White curry!?

p2
(cutlery) 55 A Hole Drilled with Knowledge
Zenji: Yes,
Zenji: "It's a white potage curry udon".
Cutlery: Marui Zenji, one of the Polar Star Dorm's residents, what's his real ability!?
Shokugeki-no SOMA
Story: Tsukuda Yuuto
Art: Saeki Shun
Collaborator: Morisaki Yuki
Shige: Hmm...This dish is quite beautiful,
Shige: If Kurokiba-kun's dish was a color torrent,
Shige: This would be a quiet pond...

p3
Natsume: Well then---
Voice: Well...I guess he won't get much points.
Voice: That guy Marui...
Voice: All I remember of him was that he was dog-tired during the training camp.
All: !!?
Yua: U...Umm, could anyone give us some comments...
Yua: D...Don't ignore meeeee!

p4
Voice: Whaaaaat!?
Voice: They're all engrossed eating!?
SFX: *munch*
SFX: *munch*
Makito: This chewy poached eggs, the creamy mashed potatoes...
Makito: This topping of hot cheese!
Makito: And the roux, finished up like "Vichyssoise"!!
Big Text: "Vichyssoise"
Text: A cold potage made by adding fresh cream and other things to the product of sieving boiled potatoes.
Text: This invention of this dish is credited to Louis Diat, when he was the head chef of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in 1917.
Asterisk: Potage: A term in French cuisine used to refer to soups
Voice: It looks thick and heavy at first glance but my chopsticks move smoothly in it!
Natsume: It's all thanks to the smooth light udon and the "coriander powder"...
Text: This spice is unique for its mildness that reminds you of citrus fruits and its faint spiciness!
Text: Its affinity with the noodles’ cumin is great, they help each other rise their aroma...
Asterisk: Coriander: A spice used since ancient times which is the seed of the herb you must use in Thai cuisine, "phakchi"

p5
Natsume: Such an unbelievable feeling of satisfaction...!
Zenji: I've also used "dill" which is a must for a Vichyssoise topping.
Zenji: By roasting a mix of dill seeds and cumin seeds, I finished up a fragrant soup.
Shige: You made us eat a mix of plump noodles and a thick roux...This dish has a feeling close to that of "tsukemen"!! //cold Chinese noodles accompanied by soup for dipping
Shige: To think that this is based on a dish made 100 years ago!
Shige: It's a wonderful dish!!
All: ...

p6
Guy: Marui-shiii!!
Girl: As expected from Marui-shi!
Takao: ...Yes, yes.
Takao: I couldn't have asked for a better unveiling,
Takao: One for the gifted "Marui Zenji"...
Box: Miyazato Takao Miyazato Seminar's Professor
Takao: "The Physiology of Taste: Meditations on Transcendental Gastronomy",
Takao: Auguste Escoffier's work, "Le Guide Culinaire", and others are just the beginning.
Takao: The Miyazato Seminar specializes on the research and analysis of classical literature about gourmet food.
Takao: In that group, Marui Zenji
Takao: Is our ace while being only a first year!!

p7
Text: I don't have an outstanding cooking sense
Text: And my physical strength is below average.
Text: That's exactly why I have a strong desire for "knowledge",
Text: All so that an ordinary man like me can fight against all of the geniuses!
Takao: I wonder just how much knowledge is in his brain.
Takao: We call him like this---
Takao: Flavor's Walking Dictionary!! //literally “Flavor's Well-informed Doctor” but that sounds bad and lame
//Just remove the last dialog, as it's useless

p8
Ranking:{
1st Kurokiba Ryou 93
2nd Marui Zenji 88
3rd Mito Ikumi 86
3rd Sakaki Ryouko 86
}
Yua: 88 points!!
Girl: ...!
Girl: Professor! Marui-shi...Is in 2nd place!
Girl: Look, look, professor!
Takao: Fufu...You're right...
Yua: We have a chain of high scores!
Yua: Will this impetus continue on---?

p9
Yua: Ah...?
Natsume(thinks): If we were judging only the strength of the aroma this might have won...
Natsume: This smoking...Aroma...Is unbearable!!
Yua: Contestant Ibusaki Shun!!
Shun: It's my "Special Smoked Curry"...Enjoy it.

p10
Voice: The toppings are smoked bacon, smoked potato...And smoked egg!?
Voice: You can't just smoke everything!
Voice: But...Damn it, I want to have some!!
Natsume(thinks): Th...The theme is curry!
Natsume(thinks): If he killed the spices' aroma by smoking blindly---
Natsume: mmmmmm!!

p11
Makito: This savory smell almost gives me a heartache...
Makito: The spices that give the finishing touch are cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, and clove, all coarsely ground!
Shige: And yet...He also used smoked chips and "apple"!!
Shige: Compared to cherries and other fruits, apples give a mellower and sweeter aroma...!
Makito: I see...That's the spices' aroma isn't overwhelmed but made better!
Shige: Yes...He used the chips that make the best use of the coarsely ground spices...!!
Shun: I put the coarsely ground spices in "Saumur Juice", too, //maybe liquid instead of juice... Also, Saumur was the only romanization I could find for Somyu-ru, I think not even Japanese know where this word really comes from...
Shun: That should let you taste the curry's flavor in the other ingredients.
Asterisk: Saumur Juice: A liquid used to "pickle in salt" something before smoking it. It helps to give the ingredients a uniform saltiness.

p12
SFX: *melt...*
Shige: There's no mistakes in the topping either...!
Shige: The egg's deliciousness is tightly condensed! The soft-boiled egg yolk is like jelly and it's melting...
Shige(thinks): No...But, wait...
Shige(thinks): All the ingredients form a perfect harmony instead of being all around the place,
Shige(thinks): But how could he create such a sense of unity...?
Shige: !!
Shige: I see! I understand it now!!
Shige: The "salt" added to the mixed spices was also smoked!!
Voice: E...Even the salt is smoked!?
Voice: But...Does that change the flavor so much!?
Shun: By the way...I didn't use normal salt-

p13
Shun: But "Moshio".
Shun: It's a salt made by burning seaweed that contains great amounts of salt, dissolving it in water...And boiling the clear top of the resulting water.
Shun: Sea salt, rock salt...I tried smoking many types of salt this summer,
Shun: But I thought moshio was the best for this curry.
Natsume(thinks): Moshio...! That's why this has such a mild taste!!
Natsume(thinks): To think he gave harmony to this curry using the power of smoked salt...!
Makito(thinks): What a fearsome boy...
Shige(thinks): He has a perfect grasp of the flavor smoked food should have!!
Thought: At such a young age you possess the ability to control smoke at your will!
Thought: You are the---

p14
Thought: Prince of smoke!!
Yua: 88 Points!!!
Yua: He's tied in 2nd place!!
Souma: Oh! Both of them were amazing!
Ryouko: Marui-kun was an amazing guy too, huh...!
Ryouko: He's just a friendly person at the polar star dorm, though.

p15
Shun: ...You finally showed your true self in front of everyone, huh.
Zenji: Fufu...Look who's talking.
Zenji: You're also a secretive man.
Voice: It looks like lady Natsume can no longer stand by herself!
Guy: Wow...! There's 3 of the polar star members in the top 5!!
Guy: ...Huh? Wait a sec.
Guy: Sakaki is tied with Nikumi...
Guy: But only 4 people can go to the main tournament, right!?
Guy: What will happen if things stay like this?
Eizan: If that happens we'll hold a final vote.

p16
Eizan: Each of the 5 judges will choose the dish they thought was better.
Eizan: It's a voting system close to that of a "shokugeki"...
Chapelle: However...That final voting isn't likely to happen,
Chapelle: He is still waiting.

p17
Akira: I made...A portion of curry for you too.
Souma: Oh...What a coincidence, I did the same.
Akira: Let's compare the tastes.
Souma: You're on.
Urara: Now!
Urara: Dear spectators of the B Block!!
Urara: Look at the ranking!
