(cutlery) 47 Battle Memories
Text: A stage of battle brimming with "energy"---!!
Souma(thinks): Is really different.
Souma(thinks): The venue's scale, the number of guest seats...
Souma(thinks): And it's not only that...
Souma(thinks): The atmosphere here
Souma(thinks): Feels tense---
Souma: Tadokoro! You were already here?
Souma: How were your vacations?
Megumi: I think...I'm well prepared for this.
Yuuki: Megumi! It's been a while!!
Rouko: How were you?
Yuuki: You too, Yukihira, how do you feel?
Souma: Oh...Well, not bad I guess.
Akira: Your fingers...
Akira: Are dyed in a faint spice aroma.
Akira: ...It seems you've worked quite a bit.
Souma: I wanted to let you eat an extraordinarily good curry.
Box: Takumi is somehow not amused by that.
Souma: Oh, Takumi! Long time no see.
Takumi: I...I'm going to say it once more!
Takumi: I'm...Your true rival-
Souma: ...No, wait a second,
Souma: Who's that guy next to you?
Takumi: ? "Who?" it's Isami of course.
Souma: You're kidding me!!?
Takumi: Wha...!? What is it...?
Takumi: Isami loses weight when he gets fatigued due to the summer's heat...
Souma: This is because of a summer heat fatigue!!?
Isami: I've stabilized already so it's ok.
Isami: My body goes back to normal through Autumn and Winter.
Megumi: I...It happens every year...
Souma: I'm surprised you don't die from that.
Takumi(thinks): W...We strayed from the subject...!
Takumi: Y-You understood already, right? This is Isami!
Takumi: Well then, let's start anew---
Voice: We'd like to thank all of our attendees for waiting.
Voice: Please pay attention to the stage on the front of the hall.
Souma: Oh! What's that?
Souma: Ah, sorry, can you wait?
Takumi: Eh!! Umm...Hey!
Voice: We'll have an opening greeting
Voice: By the academy's director.
Thought: Nakiri Senzaemon---!
Souma: Oh...It's the grandpa from the opening ceremony.
Senzaemon: cough cough...Cough
Senzaemon: ...No need to worry, I just choked.
Voice: You're already old, don't overexert yourself.
Senzaemon: ---When I breathe in this place's atmosphere
Senzaemon: I can feel my heart and body being surrounded by vitality.
Voice: But he just had a coughing fit...
Senzaemon: This venue has an alias, "Chandra's Room"... //maybe Candra, I’m not sure what the correct Romanization of that is
Senzaemon: It's only used for shokugeki's "between members of the elite ten"!
Senzaemon: To honor all of the people who have been in possession of the first seat...
Senzaemon: It's our tradition to hang their portraits here.
Souma: ...Whoa! It's true!
Souma: Looking closely, that's Doujima-senpai...
Souma: Shinomiya-senpai is there too! (cd: He was the first seat...?)
Senzaemon: Many great matches
Senzaemon: And many specialties were born here...
Senzaemon: That's exactly why
Senzaemon: --They are lingering here,
Senzaemon: As if they were sediments,
Senzaemon: Memories of battles that continue uninterrupted!
Senzaemon: And the Autumn Election's "Main Tournament"
Senzaemon: Will be hold on here.
Thought: ---In short, only the students who can pass through the preliminaries...
Thought: Will be able to stand on this stage!
Senzaemon: Ladies and Gentlemen,
Senzaemon: You will make history here!!
Senzaemon: Let us meet again in this place---
Senzaemon: Cooks of Tootsuki Academy’s
Senzaemon: 92nd generation!!
Souma: Ah, Takumi, what did you want to say before?
Takumi: ...It's fine already.
Box: Takumi missed the timing to say it completely...
Voice: ---We will now explain the rules of the preliminaries.
Voice: The basic regulations are as written in the letters sent to you:
Voice: The theme is "Curry Dishes".
Voice: You may use the ingredients inside the venue...Otherwise, you might use any ingredients you brought.
Voice: The time limit is three hours...

Voice: Is a total of eight.
Voice: ---In other words, from each group
Box: A Block
Box: B Block
