Saitoma returns to the island to pick up Ryusaki and the rest of his friends who were trapped with him there.Bookmark here

-Hey... are you still alive? (Saitoma)Bookmark here

In the place where the three of them should have been tied up were three gray bodies, totally withered and completely formed of skin and bone alone.Bookmark here

-Fo-oddddd... (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

In the middle of the beach the competition was about to start. All tourists went there to see the show.Bookmark here

-Are you back? Where are those young people? (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-I caught them on the island, it seems they went to the bathroom before the competition started. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-It must have been difficult for them. (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-Frankly what an asshole uncle would do these things. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-But they did all this just to help us. (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-That makes them even more idiots. Why go through all this for someone else? (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-Ladies and gentlemen. The twenty-seventh edition of the competition to see who eats the most Takoyakis is about to begin. With you our competitors! (presenter)Bookmark here

- I can't wait to see him. (person 1)Bookmark here

-Will he compete this year? (person 2)Bookmark here

-Yes. He said he would participate. (person 3)Bookmark here

As expected, he is the favorite to win this year as well. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-And with you last year's winner, JIMONGI JIUUU!!! (presenter)Bookmark here

-Ahhhhhhhh! It's him. (person 1)Bookmark here

-He did come. (person 2)Bookmark here

-Whoa! This guy is huge. It must be worth about four people. (person 3)Bookmark here

-Very well, let's start... (announcer)Bookmark here

-Wa-aa... (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hmmmm... (announcer)Bookmark here

-AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (everyone)Bookmark here

The stage was enveloped by a dark aura, as Ryusaki, Souta and Akemi entered the aura that was spreading and scaring the spectators more and more.Bookmark here

-Who are these people? (person 1)Bookmark here

-People? Are you sure they're not undead? (person 2)Bookmark here

-I don't know, but they're scaring me ****. (person 3)Bookmark here

-Are you... okay? (presenter)Bookmark here

-Please... cough, cough... don't mind us. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Ahhhhhh! you just coughed up blood! Do you really think it's okay?! (presenter)Bookmark here

-I don't know if it's just me, but isn't that one wearing a winter sweater? (person 1)Bookmark here

-Lie. It's thirty-five degrees, what kind of insane person would walk away wearing something that hot? (person 2)Bookmark here

-Why are you wearing this sir? (safety)Bookmark here

-I have a cold with a contagious disease. She's the one who left us like this... cough, cough, cough... do you happen to want me to take my coat off? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-No... if that prevents you from passing your illness on to me, I will allow you to continue with it. (safety)Bookmark here

The three of them sit at the end of the table, the competitors beside them move their chairs further away from them.Bookmark here

-V-very well... now let's start putting the dishes on the tables. (presenter)Bookmark here

The cooks placed the dishes with Takoyakis for each of the competitors, as they finished, new dishes would be placed in place of the old ones to continue the competition.Bookmark here

-I can't wait to show the fruit of my training. Hehehehehe. Hmmmmm? (jimonji)Bookmark here

By the end of the table, the dark aura had turned into a murderous presence, all the contestants began to grow even more scared of the three who were drooling heavily while looking at their plates.Bookmark here

-You two... we still can't eat. We have to wait for the competition to start... (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Yes I know. I can't wait to eat again after four long days without eating anything. (Souta)Bookmark here

-FO-ODDDDD... (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-These guys... they're looking at their plates like they're animals. (competitor 1)Bookmark here

-Yes, they're no longer human, I hope they made enough Takoyakis, because if they don't... maybe we'll be eaten instead. (competitor 2)Bookmark here

-Now, we will start the competition to see who is the person who can eat the most Takoyakis, in 3, 2 and 1. START!! (presenter)Bookmark here

Everyone started eating at that moment, especially Ryusaki, Souta and Akemi, who had practically devoured a whole plate of 10 Takoyakis in an instant. Their hunger was so great that they didn't even taste what they were eating, they just kept pushing whatever was coming inside.Bookmark here

-Uooohhhhhh!! It seems that we have competitors who have already come out ahead of the others. They are doing great. (presenter)Bookmark here

-Excellent! If they continue at this pace, even Jimonji will not be a match for them. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-Uohhhh, I think I'm going to vomit, I ended up eating a lot. (Akemi)Bookmark here

Competitor Akemi withdraws from the competition after eating 37 Takoyakis.Bookmark here

-And it seems that we already have some disqualified so far, in addition to the 14 who have already left, one of the three undead who were doing very well in the beginning has just come out, but it seems that they have already slowed down. (presenter)Bookmark here

-That's bad, the hunger for the four days is gone, now all that's left is just your will. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

Saitoma's grandfather is quite worried, as Jimonji was on Ryusaki and Souta's tail.Bookmark here

-Looks like their lead will be overtaken by Jimonji! (presenter)Bookmark here

Damn it, I can't let him get to us that easily if not all our effort and suffering on that island will have been for nothing.Bookmark here

Souta starts eating as fast as he can, he had intended that the moment Jimonji reached them it would be the end for them.Bookmark here

-It seems that one of them hasn't given up on first place yet. (presenter)Bookmark here

-Ughhhhhh. (Souta)Bookmark here

Damn it! I ate too fast, it's refluxing, if I don't go to the bathroom I'll throw up here in front of everyone.Bookmark here

Souta runs off to a public restroom.Bookmark here

-Ahhhhhhhhh! He withdrew, was relying on his claw, but it seems that the most he could manage was eating 87 Takoyakis. However, the competition is not over yet, we still have two competitors fighting for the first place position. (presenter)Bookmark here

-Damn it! (Souta)Bookmark here

-Are you okay? (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-Yes, I just started having reflux from eating too fast. (Souta)Bookmark here

-I'm sorry, in the end I couldn't eat many. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Don't be sorry, I couldn't eat that many either. (Souta)Bookmark here

Dude you ate 87 Takoyakis... that's insane, anyone would be dying after eating that many. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-So all we can do is watch Ryu? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Yes, now everything is in the hands of... (Souta)Bookmark here

Ryusaki was passed out at the table from eating too much.Bookmark here

-AHHHHHHHHHH! (Souta)Bookmark here

-It seems that one of the competitors is about to give up, but look, even with his opponent unable to continue with the race, Jimonji doesn't stop eating. (presenter)Bookmark here

-Uooohhhhhh! (person 1)Bookmark here

-In the end he was the best. (person 2)Bookmark here

-I never doubted he would win. (person 3)Bookmark here

-Damn, everyone is paying attention to the fat guy now. Hmmmm, what is Ryu doing? (Souta)Bookmark here

Ryusaki was looking around suspiciously, after noticing that no one was paying attention to him, he started hiding the competition Takoyakis in his shirt.Bookmark here

-AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! (Souta and Akemi)Bookmark here

-I see, that's why this worm came with a coat even with this heat. (Souta)Bookmark here

-This is bad and if someone notices? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-JIMONJI! JIMONJI! JIMONJI! (spectators)Bookmark here

-It seems that no one will notice... (Souta)Bookmark here

However, even though he didn't need to worry about eating the Takoyakis, Ryusaki's plan had a single flaw, an hour wouldn't fit any more inside his blouse.Bookmark here

-Damn it. There's no way I can put any more. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Is it just me or did that guy fatten up out of nowhere? (person 1)Bookmark here

-Well I think that's what happens when you eat so much Takoyakis. (person 2)Bookmark here

-Uooohhhhhhh! Looks like Jimonji finally outruns the undead and takes the lead! (presenter)Bookmark here

-Damn, it's all over... (Saitoma)Bookmark here

S*** I can't eat any more Takoyaki, my belly is about to explode and my shirt is already too full. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Jimonji already surpasses his old record and continues eating, it seems that the winner is already decided with just one minute to the end of the race!! (presenter)Bookmark here

Jimonji is already at 148, while the Ryu who can't eat any more is at 131. No matter how you look at it... it looks like there's no way to win.Bookmark here

-JIMONJI! JIMONJI! JIMONJI! JIMONJI! JIMONJI!... (audience)Bookmark here

Ryusaki is upside down, disappointed that even though he tried so hard it didn't do any good, he was going to lose anyway. He raises his head to look at his friends, when he sees Saitoma hugging her grandfather, they were both crying, it looked like they were saying goodbye, like they would never see each other again. At that moment Ryusaki became serious, his expression was determined, he then took the plate full of Takoyaki and turned it over with everything in his mouth.Bookmark here


-This is insane! (person 1)Bookmark here

-How can he eat so many at once? (person 2)Bookmark here

-Bou kib, don't bhink you can cabch me. [You kid, don't think you can catch me.] (Jimonji)Bookmark here

-Jimonji, keep eating fiercely too. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Only 35 seconds left. Ryusaki is only 32 Takoyakis behind him, is that possible. (Akemi)Bookmark here

The two continue eating without stopping, until after 11 seconds, Jimonji can't stand to eat any more. Having achieved an incredible 183 Takoyakis score, Ryusaki was just 23 points behind Jimonji, but there was little time left before the competition was over.Bookmark here

Do not give up! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Don't give up... (Souta)Bookmark here

-Hmmmm? (Akemi)Bookmark here


Tears streamed down Souta's face as he spoke, but this not only motivated Ryusaki to eat more, but also turned the crowd in his favor.Bookmark here

-THAT'S RIGHT!! (person 1)Bookmark here

-DON'T GIVE UP, BROTHER!! YOU CAN!! (person 2)Bookmark here

-SHOW THAT FATTY ONE WHO'S IN CHARGE!! (person 3)Bookmark here

Everyone... is rooting for Ryu, I also have... (Akemi)Bookmark here

-YOU CAN RYUUUUUUU!! YOU CAN!! (Akemi)Bookmark here

Ryu keeps eating fiercely non-stop...Bookmark here

-5 seconds. (presenter)Bookmark here

Everyone kept cheering euphorically for Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-FOUR! (presenter)Bookmark here

7 points behind Jimonji.Bookmark here

-THREE! (presenter)Bookmark here

Souta and Akemi showed their concern in their eyes.Bookmark here

-TWO!! (presenter)Bookmark here

Saitoma and her grandfather pin all their hopes on that last second.Bookmark here

-A!!!! (presenter)Bookmark here

BEWWWWWW!!Bookmark here

-End of the test! And the winner is... (announcer)Bookmark here

183 Jimonji and 185 Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-The undead!!! (presenter)Bookmark here

-Ehhhhhhh!! (audience)Bookmark here

Souta and Akemi look at each other in relief.Bookmark here

-Looks like he got it. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Yes. (Akemi)Bookmark here

In the midst of all that euphoria, two people were spared and were with their hearts eternally grateful to the person responsible for setting them free.Bookmark here

-Grandpa... (Saitoma)Bookmark here

His grandfather smiles with tired eyes from all the worry he's been through these days.Bookmark here

-I'm sorry... I'll never do that again. I will never make you go through these things again. (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-My grandson... (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-Now we're going to talk to the winner of the competition about who can eat more Takoyakis!! So, tell us how you are feeling after winning such an exciting and fierce dispute?? (presenter)Bookmark here

Ryusaki appeared to be feeling very sick.Bookmark here

-Damn if he vomits he will be disqualified. (Souta)Bookmark here

He was so full he couldn't even open his mouth. He only made the least amount of movement possible with an "all right with your hands" sign.Bookmark here

-Ufaaa... it looks like he managed it somehow. (Souta)Bookmark here

After we got back to the cabin, Ryu spent the entire night throwing up in the bathroom.Bookmark here

Saturday 09/19 9:30.Bookmark here

-Are you sure you're going? (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-Please stay a little longer. (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-Nahhhhhh, I'm tired of the beach, it's very hot here. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Are you sure it wasn't because you were wearing a blouse? (Saitoma)Bookmark here

-Hahahahahahaha. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Ryu, thank you very much, what you did for me and my grandfather, I will never forget. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-I say the same, I will be eternally grateful to you for that. (Watanabe)Bookmark here

-Don't get me wrong, but I just did it for fun, it wasn't to help you actually. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-YOU COULD NOT HAVE SAID THAT!! (Souta)Bookmark here

Souta slaps Ryu on the head.Bookmark here

After saying goodbye to Saitoma and Watanabe. They get into Akemi's car to go home.Bookmark here

-Now what are we going to do? (Souta)Bookmark here

-From what Ryu said we will take the money to the police and say that the thieves disappeared. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Will they accept this excuse? (Souta)Bookmark here

-I don't know... I think it will be extremely difficult for us to convince them. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Damn, all this because you do things the hard way. Did you hear Ryu? I'm talking... (Souta)Bookmark here

Ryusaki was sleeping in the passenger seat.Bookmark here

- Frankly... idiot. (Souta)Bookmark here
