Box: A Block's Host Sasaki Yua
Star: JC Volume 6 and the novel will be on sale on February 4th!!
Natsume: Didn't you hear me?
Natsume: I said it was "No good".
Thought: Only the sounds of the judges tableware can be heard...
Thought: I...It feels so awkward!
Box: The hall just cools down more and more.
Etsuya: Lady Natsume...You can be more tactful with your comments, you know?
Etsuya: Don't you have any service mentality to try to heat up the place?
Natsume: Eizan-kun, you be quiet.
Man: Hahahaha! Natsume-kun is the same as always...

Guy: Wh...What's with this bizarre atmosphere!?

Yua: Then...Th...The next person,
Yua: Contestant Kurokiba Ryou, please go ahead. //nice name
Voice: Nakiri Alice's aide...Just what did he make?
Voice: I've only seen the dishes he makes in class.
Natsume(thinks): The kid that used spiny lobsters...?
Natsume(thinks): But he looks like a completely different person from when he was cooking---
Man: The lobster's burning red,
Man: Its contrast with the saffron rice's vivid yellow is beautiful...!
Man: It was finished perfectly without damaging the legs or the whiskers...
Man: This sensitive and elegant arrangement
Man: Isn't something you would have expected after seeing that exciting preparation!
Natsume: There's hundreds of places which prepare spiny lobster curry,
Natsume: A seafood curry isn't even worth conside---
Natsume(thinks): A forest...
Natsume(thinks): A deep forest.
Natsume's sd: Ah
Natsume(thinks): What was that!?
Natsume(thinks): What's...The identity of that aroma just now---
Voice: Natsume-sama had a second bite for the first time!!
Voice: What about...
Voice: The flavor!?
Natsume: ...The base is made of "American Sauce"
Natsume: A French sauce made using the shells of crustaceans...!
Natsume: And this deep tree aroma...!
Natsume: The identity of this aroma is...
Asterisk: Cognac: Brandy made in the commune of Cognac in western France. For a brandy to be acknowledged as cognac it must follow rigorous standards.
Man: I see...!! The barrel's aroma permeates into the brandy while it's fermenting!
Man: That's exactly why this curry also has the deep fragrance
Man: Of trees like cedar and sandalwood!
Ryou: That's it...
Ryou: By the way...I also tried using a high-class cognac...
Ryou: A "Napoleon Class" cognac to add a greater depth to the aroma.
Text: Cognac is classified depending on the degree of fermentation, the "Napoleon Class" is the highest class.
Man: To think that cognac's aroma would improve curry this much...
Man: This is a splendid "French Spiny Lobster Curry"
Voice: Oh...The judges finally show a reaction!
Voice: He really was an amazing guy!!
Alice: It's been a while, Erina!
Alice: Let me introduce you, I also have an aide now,
Alice: Look, it's him(music note)
Alice: I picked him up in Northern Europe.
Erina: Don't say it like you picked up a dog!
Erina(thinks): ...This is the first time I see him cook,
Erina(thinks): But it seems he has enough skills for Alice to trust him...
Ikumi: Hmm...It seems a dish really worth grading finally came out.
Ikumi: He isn't Alice's follower for nothing, huh.
Souma: .....But you know...
Souma: That dish,
Souma: Is it really over now...?
Natsume: We...Well, it wasn't bad,
Natsume: I might...Give it some points.
Natsume: Well then, let's proceed with the grading---
Ryou: Ah...It was here.
Ryou: Not yet...!! It's too early to finish sampling my dish...!
Natsume: Did you really have to do that?
Man: Hm...? Droppers?
Man: It seems...They're filled with cognac.
Ryou: There's a part you haven't eaten yet, isn't there?
Ryou: The insides of the spiny lobster's head...
Ryou: The lobster's brain.
Ryou: You put a few drops of this inside the shell
Ryou: And slurp the brains from it.
Ryou: That's the most delicious way of eating it.
Natsume: You're telling us to..."slurp" it...?
Natsume: There's no way...I can do something so vulgar!
Natsume: Y...You should at least crack open the shell before giving it to us.
Ryou: What are you blabbing out?
Ryou: I can tell just by looking at you...
Ryou: Show me your true colors,
Ryou: You actually want to jump into the fray right now, don't you?
Ryou: Try stuffing your cheeks once more with the roux and the saffron rice
Ryou: After slurping this cognac and lobster brains...
Ryou: Its flavor is so good it can't even be compared with what you tasted just now...!
Natsume(thinks): More than before...!?
Natsume(thinks): The surging seafood’s deliciousness and the trees' deep fragrance
Natsume(thinks): Blend with each other...
Natsume(thinks): My consciousness
Natsume(thinks): Is flying away!!!
Yua: Contestant Kurokiba
Yua: Scored 93 points......!!
Voice: Eh...And here I thought
Voice: That Hayama Akira would dominate A Block...
Voice: But an outrageous dark horse came out!!
Ryou: For as long as I can remember...I was already thrown in there,
Ryou: In food's battlefield
Ryou: This place is...Lenient!!!
Voice: Will anyone be able to surpass

Voice: His 93 points!?
