Why such a low rating?!

As of the time of this writing, a 1.5 average from 2 votes? You people are nuts! ;) This was a great battle. Were you turned off by the beating of the hideous heart? Haha. Anyway, yeah, this was an excellent battle with two different approaches; more adventurous from the challenger and more traditional from Chen. The score totals were impressive, with a surprise too. I like that they had comments at the end, which wasn't so common at this point. Oh, and it was neat to see the connections to Ishinabe and future IC Wakiya Yuji. Along with Kihachi himself, that's quite the pedigree!

Also, this was Yoko Akino's first appearance and thankfully not the last! Laughing She may just be my favorite of all the female guests, even edging out the also awesome Mayuko Takata.

Live seafood

I always love episodes that uses live seafood because as soon as they get dispatched I would yell medic.  I think out of all of the guests who have been judges on Iron Chef I have to agree that Yoko Akino is the best judge during the show's run.
