Shokugeki no Soma
Story: Tsukuda Yuuto
Art: Saeki Shun
Collaborator: Morisaki Yuki
Ikumi: Weren't you watching Takumi's match, you idiot!!?
Ikumi: To think you'd reveal the dish you're making by yourself!!
Box: Nikumi and Yoshino made him sit in seiza.
Souma: But if he's going to predict it anyway it's just the same.
Ikumi: Even then...!
Subaru(thinks): Does he think his bluff worked...?
Subaru(thinks): He plans to say he's making one dish here
Subaru(thinks): And making another different one for the real deal...
Subaru: ...You might be just bluffing, though.
Subaru: At any rate, I'll thoroughly investigate the dish you're making.
Subaru: With just some random words you-...
Souma: Naturally, I'm not just saying random things.
Souma: With this, it'll become a beef stew contest.
Yuuki: R...Revealing the dish is one thing......
Yuuki: But you're quitting as a cook if you lose!!?
Ikumi: Open your eyes!!
Yuuki: What'll be left if we take cooking from you!!!?
Souma: Hm...What's with you? Isn't that a bit rude?
Souma: For example, I could have great success as a salaryman.
Souma: I could even become a lawyer or a diplomat. (cd: That could be nice)
Souma: Objection! //LOL
Ikumi(thinks): He's really positive!
Yuuki(thinks): And he values himself really highly!
Megumi: D...Do you have any ideas?
Megumi: Some method to outwit Mimasaka-kun or something...?
Souma: I'm going to think about that later.
Ikumi: I'm disappointed on you!
Ikumi: For you...Cooking is...!
Ikumi: Something you can throw away so easily like that!!?
Ikumi: Jeez......I don't care anymore...!
Yuuki: Ah...! Nikumicchi!
Ryouko: You don't have to...Take on a risk like quitting being a cook.
Ryouko: Even if you only take back the mezzaluna-
Souma: That's not enough.
Souma: ...Hey, Mimasaka.
Souma: In a way, you actually have my props, you know?
Souma: To think you could recreate what Takumi was planning to make...You can't do that without being incredibly skilled.
Souma: Why do you have such stupid challenges?
Subaru: ......It was on one of those stupid challenges...In which Aldini was utterly defeated, you know?
Subaru: I completely surpassed him as a cook and---
Souma: You're wrong there.
Souma: You only skimmed Takumi's effort.
Souma: Repeating trial and error,
Souma: Failing many times,
Souma: It's exactly because of that process that the dishes shine.
Souma: You're so pitiable...
Souma: You don't know the true joy of cooking.
Souma: That's the reason why you can laugh in those kind of matches,
Souma: You just steal your opponents pride with a superficial win...
Souma: I'll never accept a cook like that.
Souma: I'll return those 100 tools to their rightful place---
Souma: If one knife isn't enough,
Souma: Even if I have to bet all of myself as a cook,
Souma: I'll defeat you,
Subaru: ...Then I'll go even further
Subaru: And trace you perfectly, that's all...!!
Subaru: Our shokugeki
Subaru: Is established, then...!
Subaru(thinks): Yukihira Souma...I'm getting
Subaru(thinks): More and more interested in you...<3
Subaru: Beef stew...If I were Yukihira Souma
Subaru: The meat part I would choose would be leg meat...Shank meat...Or maybe...
Subaru: From his trends so far I can tell---
Box: The next day
Box: Early morning
Souma: Well then...During this week
Souma: I'll search for ideas for the beef stew...
Souma: Before the morning classes begin,
Souma: I should make something along with breakfast...
Souma: I want to ask Nikumi about beef,
Souma: But I don't know if she'll be in a good mood.
SFX: *ding dooong*
Souma: Who's that? Coming so early in the morning.
Souma: For them to have business with the polar star dorm...
Souma(thinks): Telephoto lens,
Souma(thinks): Something like a recorder.
Boy: The real thing...!! Wow......
Boy: What are you doing so suddenlyyyyy!?
Souma: Well...Sorry, sorry.
Souma: You seemed to be a pretty blatant spy but it seems you aren't, huh.
Souma: So...? Why are you here so early in the morning?
Boy: ..I'm! I'm Soutsuda!!

Mitsuru: And won sweepingly!!
Mitsuru: The T.S. has written that you will likely lose against Mimasaka-senpai...
Mitsuru: But I don't think so!
Mitsuru: All of my friends are also cheering for you!
Mitsuru: They say you're an amazing person for doing such a brave effort...While coming from a small shabby restaurant!
Souma: Hmmm...That's what they think about me?
Mitsuru: ......I came here on my own will.
Mitsuru: I'm only in a lower position since I'm in middle school so they won't let me have big articles...
Mitsuru: But, if I can successfully cover someone as important as Yukihira-senpai...
Mitsuru: I think I can become a first-rate newspaper reporter!
Souma(thinks): Go cook.
Mitsuru: I don't even know if I'll get space for the article!
Mitsuru: But my feelings of wanting to go after Yukihira-senpai are real! //lol, this sounds so misleading XD
Mitsuru: I'll...Do my best on this coverage!
Mitsuru: So please let me do it!! Yukihira-senpai!
Souma: Don't wanna.
Cutlery: A weird partner appears.
