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: 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.
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.
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.
Voice: The first years this year...Are quite the individuals, huh.
Voice: Yeah... They certainly are the cream of the crop.
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.

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?
