I read through this a couple times and I think I at least get all the implications Ichiryuu's trying to make here... but there's no record in English of this law he's talking about that I can find online. Somebody let me know if you've heard of it.
We still don't have a good raw so this probably won't get done today. I'm translating from the public raw.

Midora: The one to become food...
will be you, Ichiryuu...!!

Midora: All things
Midora: "Hungry Tongue"!!
Ichi: Licking one's chopsticks
is bad manners...
Ichi: Realized it, have you...?
Ichi: The slips in your movements...
They're errors below the micro-level, but I can say I sensed unease, just as I expected...
Midora: Was it...
the "square root law"? [quote white]
Midora: Say I have 100 particles here...
the square root of it (100), a mere 10 of those particles, will move with exceptional behavior!! [There's a square root sign before the 100 in the parentheses.]
This is a purely statistical law.
Say a creature made of 100 atoms is released in the sky.
(Falls due to gravity)
Narrator: Of the 100 atoms that make it up, 90 fall due to gravity, normally.
But the remaining 10 behave in an exceptional manner such as trying to rise, stopping in mid-air, or other ways that do not obey gravity.
It's said that us organisms are made up of a large number of atoms in order to increase the precision of our biological activity... In order to lower our rate of error due to the "Square Root Law". [quote white]

Midora: There are many creatures that fly in the sky, but...
but you are the only one that uses the exceptionally small number of strays (atoms) to fly, Ichiryuu.
Ichi: Right now, they're still a minority,
but someday they'll band together and change the world.
Midora... The minority inside you
is starting to gain some influence little by little as well.
Midora: "Ibara no Shita"!!
T/N: Ibara no Shita = Tongue of Thorns
Ichi: "Utshiri Bashi"----
T/N: Utsuribashi means using one's chopsticks to jump from side dish to side dish without pausing to eat rice in between, which is a breach of etiquette.
Ichiryuu: "Sashi Bashi"
T/N: Sashi Bashi means pointing towards somebody or something with one's chopsticks, which is also a breach of etiquette.
Midora: "Tongue Shield"!!

Ichi: You're slipping, you're slipping.
I don't even have to dodge anymore.
SFX: DODODODODO DODODODO
T/N: Seseri Bashi means poking or playing with one's food with one's chopsticks. Also a breach of etiquette.
Midora: Old ma~~~n.
The precision of my movements is...
Ichi: It seems the minority atoms in you...
have created a large error.
From this point on, it's...
Ichiryuu: "Minority World"!!
Insert: Now, Ichiryuu's true power is revealed---!!!
