[Toriko 226 Translation by Kewl0210]
Title: Gourmet 226 VS Tommyrod!!
Author: Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi
Side: The curtain rises on the battle to the death..!!!
Tommy: Do you know why...
I entrust my fights to insects...?
SFX: BIKI MIKI BIRI BIRI
Tommy: There's no special reason.
It's just too much of a pain in the ass to fight myself.
Tommy: Anything that doesn't serve a purpose is just trash.
If they're in the way, I don't need them.
Tommy: I will be directly oppose you in battle.
It is quite rare for me to fight all-out.
Tommy: Now I'll cut that hairy head of yours
down to size.
So you're gonna rip out my hair?
Well, looks like you lost your arm before you got a chance...
Tommy: This power...
As I thought, this guy...
Narration: The technique activated earlier in the fight against the Four Beast---
The "appetite" that was shot out from inside their bodies
was a physical manifestation of the "Gourmet Cells'" energy. [quote White]
And at the same time...
It was the impetus to awaken something
that had previously been lying dormant,
a "devil" inside the Gourmet Cells-----[quote White]
Thing: Now's my chance----
The cork's been popped...
It's okay, then?
you don't mind if I come out?
Sani: Sani himself...
could not grasp the true identity of this thing that had awoken after the "Oushoku Bansan"... [quote bold. "Thing" in italics.]
But this "power"...
Sani: With it showing its face just a bit...
I gain an overwhelming energy that feels like it could actually devour me completely... ["me" in italics.]
Even now, it feels like I'm going to lose consciousness.
Narration: It was
clear that as he was then, he could not control it completely
Sani: I can't use this hair for a long period of time...!!
I've got to finish the battle in one shot!!
SFX: GUN BIH
Tommy: His reaction time is fast.
SFX: KYU KYU KYUN
C'mon, c'mon! Over heeeere!
He so fast!
I won't leave you anywhere to run!
Narration: "Compound Eyes"-----
Eye structures that many arthropods, like insects and such, have.
They have an assembly of many little eyes, each one of which projects a different part of object.
Compound eyes are found in many insects with strong flying abilities.
There are about 6,000 of those individual eyes on a fly... And a dragonfly is said to have over 20,000.
But Tommy's eyes could not be compared with those.
The composition of Tommy's compound eyes had an incredible 1 million individual eyes----
And they even captured the weaker electromagnetic waves of visible light.
In other words, Tommy's eyes could see Sani's feelers perfectly.
Tommy: On top of that, this guys still cannot control that hair perfectly. ["That hair" in white.]
Him attacking by putting the hair in bunches is proof of that.
He cannot control that power to the degree of spreading it into hundreds of thousands of separate strands.
Tommy: No matter how much power they have,
Tommy: there's no way I wouldn't be able to avoid feelers with such a clear "beginner mark" on them!!
Sani: SHit... Even having mastered "Food Honor" and "Intuition" I still can't handle them well...
Controlling hair I'm not used to grates on my nerves.
Oh well, I'll have to rescind it.
Tangle around him!! "Hair Lock"!!
Bomb Egg Storm!!
What is that?!
Tommy: Wing Shield!
Sani: His left arm that I blew off,
his insect ganglia---- are still alive/!!
SFX: MISHI MISHI
Tommy: AHAHA! You've only made yourself another powerful enemy!
That arm's Capture Level is probably no lower than 200!!
Sani: Wh... What awesome power!
It's gonna tear my neck apart...
Tommy: Looks like I've finally
got an opening!
SFX: ZAH GAH
SFX: MEKI MEKI
Tommy: Now it
[Aw man, that face...]
No... It's not just my hand.
My whole body...
Sani: I've finally...
managed to control it...
Sani: Controlling hair... I'm not used to...
really does take some time...
Sani: "Hair Marionette"
I now control all of your nerves.
TOmmy: No... that's wrong... There isn't a single strand coming from this guy's head into my body...
They haven't penetrated my body...
Then what in the world is...
doing this to my nerves...?
Could it be that... by "controlling hair he's not used to"...
he didn't mean that hair with that dangerous power... ["that hair" in white.]
Tommy: The cut hair?!
Even with it cut, the nerves can still communicate for a while.
Just like insect ganglia,
he could control them remotely?
Sani: I knew your left arm was still alive.
You had given me a hit...
My ability has a range limit.
SFX: HAA HAA
Sani: But if I can freely control cut hair.
Even if the enemy is several kilometers away...
it's possible for me to bring them down without them even noticing.
Even somebody like you that flies around nonstop.
SFX: HAH HAH
Tommy: The reason you were unsure if you could manipulate that "dangerous hair"...
was because you were concentrating on controlling the "cut hair"?
Sani: Pr'tty much.
But it's true that I suffered in order to handle this hair.
That's true now, as well.
Sani: And... GUHUH... you've opened quite a tunnel in me...
I've got to... operate on this stomach soon...
Sani: We've gotta hurry up and finish this.
Bishokukai Sous Chef,
Heavenly King Sani...
It's odd... I really wonder why.
In a way, my fight with you has been similar to my one with Toriko...
I feel a bright feeling of exhilaration...
Sani: Izzat right?
......To be honest, me, too...
I thought you were a shitty bastard when you were relying on the bugs, but......
there aren't many people rush at me with their own flesh and blood bodies.
And on top of that, you're the first to tear off so much of my hair...
Sani: I'll show him respect-----
Controlling torn out hair...
I still can't keep it up for that long...
You'll be able to move freely again soon...
SFX: HAH HAH
Sani: You understand, right...?
Sani: That moment will be...
the signal to draw our swords...!!
Side: Crowning the end of the battle to the death!!!
Next issue, Sani VS Tommyrod is finally concluded!!! Who will be the victor...?!
