Erina: This student's participation in the election...
Erina: We should deliberate about it again!!
Voice: However...We already approved of him the other day.
Erina: No! There's a problem with his behavior!
Erina: He's not suitable for that honorable gourmet festival!!
Satoshi: Nakiri-kun,
Satoshi: Your opinion about cuisine is always correct...
Satoshi: But, I can't but feel that you start being illogical
Satoshi: When it's about Souma-kun.
Cutlery: Outspoken.
Satoshi: Did something happen between the two of you?
Satoshi: For example...Something personal?
Erina: ...! Not really...
Erina: I just think he isn't qualified...

Erina: Isshiki-san...How about you?
Erina: Aren't you trying to give a preferential treatment to your dorm junior?
Satoshi: Fufu...That's not true at all.
Etsuya: Yukihira Souma...
Etsuya: He looks like an interesting guy.
Etsuya: I support him.
Erina: ...!
Etsuya: He certainly hasn't achieved much in the academy,
Etsuya: It hasn't been long since he entered Tootsuki after all.
Etsuya: But he completed his 200 meals with some last minute cleverness...
Etsuya: He has a high grade for his first day assignment too.
Paper: It was delicious. Hinako
Etsuya: Aren't these unconventional subjects
Etsuya: The perfect thing to liven up the festival?
Etsuya: I don't understand what are you complaining for.

Erina: ...!
Voice: The first years this year...Are quite the individuals, huh.
Voice: Yeah... They certainly are the cream of the crop.
Voice: ---Alright.
Voice: Well then,
Voice: Let's settle with these.
Box: A few days later,
Box: was the closing ceremony---
Box: The first term's report cards were handled
Box: And everyone was thrilled with expectations for the summer vacations.
Box: However, that had another meaning in Tootsuki Academy.
Voice: Hey! Hurry!
Voice: It's finally the announcement!

Cutlery: The latest volume (4) is selling absurdly fast!!
Box: This day...
Box: The participants for the "Autumn Election"
Box: Were officially announced!
Cutlery: Delight and sorrow mixed together...!!

Megumi(thinks): Auuuh, as I thought...Being selected is something so extravagant
Megumi(thinks): That only I feel really out of place!!
Guy: I've got better grades than her in both theoretical and practical classes, you know...?
Guy: What's going on here? Isn't that really weird?
Megumi: ...
Miyoko: Silence!!
Guy: !?
Miyoko: You're such damp guys...To think you're backbiting sneakily.

Miyoko: Listen well, the election participants aren't chosen just for their grades.
Box: Houjou Miyoko B Block
Megumi's sd: So big...
Miyoko: Their individuality and future prospects as a cook...They were evaluated from many points of view.
Miyoko: People that are satisfied just with their test grades

Thought: Eeeeeeh...!?
Thought: I...It caved in so deep!!
Megumi: ...U-Umm, thanks.

Nao: I want you to scorn me...!
Box: Sadatsuka Nao B Block
Nao: Aaaah...Detestable......! That woman...
Nao: Even though,

Nao: If I defeat that hindrance
Nao: Erina-sama should notice...
Nao: My love for her...!!!
Nao: Hihi
Nao: Hihihihihi...
Police: ...Chief! Umm...
Chief: Let's say we didn't see that...!
Guy: ...

Man: It's about time...The members are announced...
Man: Marui-kun!
Alice: Yukihira-kun,
Alice: Do you remember...What I said as I left after the 200 meals?
Flashback: I'm waiting expectantly for the moment I get to defeat you personally (music note)
Souma: ---Yeah!
Alice: Then it's ok.

Alice: Did you know this, Yukihira-kun...?
Alice: Almost every single of the current Elite Ten members
Alice: Participated on the "main tournament" of the election.
Alice: In summary---
Alice: The next generation of the Elite Ten
Alice: Will be born from between these people...!

Fumio: Why not at least make a call!?
Fumio: You have
Fumio: As little common sense as always!

Jou: You haven't changed either, Fumio-san...
Jou: And well,
Jou: I was in the vicinity, you see.
Jou: I'm back home.
