Watch Yukihira as he once much more has to face the freckles master, Akira Hayama, as well as the difficulty of cooking bear meat. Ns didn’t also know bears where edible.

Japanese original Episode Title: リベンジ・マッチ


Yukihira is being separated from anyone else and also thrown into a kitchen come experiment through bear meat therefore he can face Akira, the newest member that the upstream Ten. And at this point, i just have to ask one an ext time, why don’t they simply expel everyone and be over with it?

Apparently, cooking bear meat is quite the difficulty due come its stinky-stinky aftertaste. While you will do think Yukihira would certainly be thrilled to work-related with something so disgusting (he has, ~ all, a passion for pistol food), he starts exploring by trying come conceal the stench. Somewhere near the middle of the episode Kuga jumps in because that no evident reason and also offers Yukihira his help, together with his extensive knowledge that Chinese spices. Yukihira goes on a trip to the mountains and discovers some regional berries the could assist him properly season the meat. He likewise realizes that should more than likely be working through the stench quite than against it; and also while he’s finding out all that, Akira is already done the cooking and strolls approximately showing off his dish.

The episode ends v a completely unnecessary shot of Rindo-senpai’s ass. Its prominence to the breakthrough of the plot continues to be unknown come me.

Episode Highlights

Akira transforming douchebag: I believe, well no, stop say i hope there is some kind of backstory to Akira’s decision in joining the elite Ten. His partnership with the short spice lady seemed very important come him therefore I’d be surprised to see this whole subplot being brushed ~ above the side.

Erina gaining grabbed: What the hell was the all about? I average it’s one point being bossed around and also humiliated by her dad and also another to have his lackeys personally forcing you to follow them. What a cheap attempt at drama.

Dojima-senpai: Unlike anyone else acquisition this way too seriously, Dojima-senpai is the voice the reason and feels comfortable sufficient to explain himself as neutral. *slow clap*

Kuga-senpai: That brief guy of questionable ethnicity that have the right to only cook mapo tofu is quiet on the show? Wow. Go anyone in reality really care?

Megumi’s human body language: Seasons come and seasons go but negative Megumi, no matter just how much she improves, doesn’t seem to build on the confidence lot – she does, after ~ all, should keep the ‘shy/cute’ persona going. Ns swear she constantly keeps her hands urgent in the front, forming tiny fists. This must be painful.

Great cooking knocks girlfriend out: In yet one more display that the present being ridiculously extra, Akira Hayama’s food preparation when joining the upstream Ten is actually shown to knock people out. Why not send them to the shadow realm, says I?

Weird fire person: What is that weird firey number that shows up just prior to the titles in between Akira and also Yukihira? more than likely yet one more hard initiative to show how vital all this is.

Themes & Trivia

Bear Meat: Yes, the Japanese, particularly in the North, eat bears. Matagi, renowned bear hunters that Hokkaido, exercise old-school be affected by each other hunts to this day. In my humble opinion, the much far better to eat any sort of game rather than meat that’s come the end of a torture factory, therefore the entirety controversy around this problem seems a little bit pathetic, once pigs, one of the most intelligent animals in the world, room being slaughtered and consumed on a everyday basis.

Schisandra berries: Schisandra Chinensis, whose fruit is dubbed magnolia berry or five-flavor-fruit, is a deciduous woody vine native to woodlands of north China and also the Russian much East. You deserve to buy food supplements of the online, and it’s quite famous in natural medicine.

At the very least the food trivia is an excellent this season…

…unlike in the vault one, whereby we had to put up v Kuga-senpai’s nonsense.
