Rin: No, I didn't!!
SFX: BASHU BASHU

SFX: AAA GUH
Wabutora: So you're Chef Komatsu?
I've wanted to meet you.
SFX: ZA AAAA
Komatsu: AAAAH, the oil use master!!
Wabutora: That "Mors Oil" you discovered is a wonderful oil.
I've been able to use it at my shop as a deep-frying oil.
I thank you for discovering it.
Komatsu: Th... Thank you so much!!
Though, I didn't discover that on my own...
But anyhow, it's an honor that you're using it!!
Komatsu: Ah... Um... I've read all of your books, Chef Wabutora.
I got a pre-order for your new book "You and I, Water and Oil" the second I got a chance.
Wabutora: Ah, thank you.
Handwriting: I've been a big fan for a long time.
They're really great!
Kama: It's favorite of mine, too~~~
The Mors Oil...
Description: "Miso Soup Granny"
(Ranking - 54th)
Komatsu: "Miso Soup Granny" Chef "Granny Kama"!
That's a ni~~ce oil, ya know~~~
SFX: HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH HIH
Guy: Even more so than the Mors Oil,
I was really moved by that Medicinal Cooking Mochi~~~
Komatsu: Cooking Speed Master!!
"Mach Cooking" Chef "Ton"!!
Description: "Mach Cooking"
(Ranking - 33rd)
Ton: If only I were there during the whole Four Beast thing, eeeh?
I might've been able to make twice the number of thoooose
Medicinal Cooking Mochi.
[This guy seems like the kind of creepy guy Togashi would design.]
Guy: Just twice, Ton?
If it were me, I'd have kneaded up the to four times the mochi, I'd wager.
Komatsu: AAAh, you're!
Komatsu: "Super Gutsy Udon"
Komatsu: Chef "Nerimaru"!!
Description: "Super Gutsy Udon"
(Ranking - 56th)
Ton: You're saying with that body type, you can cook faster than me?
In your dreaaaams, Nerimaru!
Hey wait, are you actually asleep?
Your eyes are closed.
Nerimaru: They ain't closed, they're just narrow!!
Ton: Ah, they opened.
Guy: FOHFOHFOH, cooking isn't better if it's done faster, you know.
Komatsu: "Soba Hermit" "Kamizaru" Roushi!!
T/N: His name is made up of the kanji for "God" and "strainer". A kind of bamboo strainer a kind of Soba is served in. "Roushi" means a sage or a zen teacher.

(Raking - 34th)
comes out less easily.
Guys: He... He sure...
has a thick, rich looking face...
Komatsu: That's a really convincing face.
Ah... Um--- Anyhow...
If you wouldn't mind, could I get all of your autographs?
Wabutora: That's a lot of autograph papers!!
Setsuno: Huhhuhhu. It sure is niiiice to be young.
Zaus: They're the people of the next generation...
Do you think it's finally time for us to pass the baton, Setsu-san?
Setsuno: You mean retire...?
Huhhuhhu. That word isn't in a chef's vocabulary.
Like how people never retire from eating.
Setsuno: I heard in Chef God Frohze-sama's last moments
he was facing a cutting board with a kitchen knife in hand.
The time we chefs "retire" is when we die.
As long as people keep eating...
Zaus: Then we still cannot surrender it to these young ones, eh?
The title of "Super Cook"...!!
Setsuno: Huhu. I have no intention of handing it over to you, either.
The years you won, Zau-chan, were mostly years when I couldn't come due to being busy with work...
Zaus: Then shall we settle this, Setsu-san?
Setsuno: As you wish.
SFX: BACHI BACHI (Electricity)
Announcer: Ooooh, the sparks of high flames are already flying between the chefs!!

Ahmon: Patch-shi, you love unexpected wins.
Who's your prediction for the winner?
Description: GOURMET 7
Unexpected winners, eh...?
Patch: Of course I have a prediction...
Among the newcomers.
Announcer: Nooow, just what sort of battle will unfold at this year's festivaaal?!!
What kinds of recipes will we seeee?!!
And what kind of drama is awaiting uuuus?!!
This, the 50th Cooking Fest!!
Will now get underway!!!
Announcer: By the way, I'm your host "Munageh", bringing you every second!! I've ranked number 1 in favorability ratings for Gourmet MCs 15 years running!!
Munageh: I may have almost been overtaken by "Udegeh-shi" last year, but somehow I was able to get some stuff going behind the scenes and stopped it!! I'll defend my pay for the Fest to the bitter end!!
Guys: That's pretty dark, Munageeeh!!
Munageh: I hope you all have a great time today!!!
Munageh: Without further ado, let's get started!!
Komatsu: Huh? Already?
We start with the 1st battle, the preliminaries!!
Munageh: A food endurance race made up of swimming, biking, and running!!
We call, "Triathlon Cooking"!!!!
Komatsu: Huuuuuh?! Triathlon------?!
Munageh: In this rigorous Gourmet Age, stamina is indispensable even for Chefs!!
Guys: All riiiight! You got iiiiit!!
Okay, let's do iiiit!! [Bottom]
Munageh: Now all the chefs can show us that stamina they've honed like mad on a daily basiiis!!
Komatsu: Uh, I haven't honed a single thiiiing!
50 of our 100 chefs will drop out!
Komatsu: It's getting cut in haaalf?!!
Munage: Though it's called a triathalon, the battle is really all about "cooking"!!
So chefs with little endurance, have no fear!!
First you swim to obtain "ingredients" which you "transport" by bike and you run to obtain cooking utensils...
Once you've reached to goal kitchen at the end, the cooking begins!!
The chefs that create the top 50 tastiest dishes pass the preliminaries!!
Of course, those with faster times will be able to get more tasty ingredients.
And the slower ones will have to compensate with their cooking skill!!
Now then, we move the stage
to the location for battle 1, the preliminaries, "Triathlon Cookiiiing"!!
Sign: 50th Cooking Festival Triathlon cooking
Munage: Nooow, now, now! We're here at "Cooking Island's" famous sandy beach made of uncooked rice. "Rice Beach"!!
Here, "Triathalon Cooking" will begin!!
SFX: WAAAAAAAAAA ZAZAAAAA
Insert: A huge free-for-all...!!!
Komatsu: It's no use...
I'm definitely gonna drop out in the preliminaries...
Please lend me your strength~~
Narration: Meanwhile, in Cooking Stadium----
Zebra: Hey, keep hauling out booze, dammit!!
Toriko: This is sooo goood!!

Narration: The Four Heavenly Kings are having a party----
