Fugu - Chen vs. Indragoli
Date Added: Feb 12, 2013 10:37 PM
Description: The preliminary battle is a matchup of Spaghetti. Half of the challengers seem to be non-chefs this time. And the eventual winner is an Italian chef. (Kind of seems like they already knew who they wanted to be the challenger in the final battle.) This episode features the debut of Iron Chef Chinese Chen Kenichi. The theme will be Fugu. Given the specialized skill needed to properly prepare Fugu, Kitchen Stadium provides trained Fugu experts to cut the fish apart for the chefs. (It should be noted that the Chairman Kaga character will eventually be \\\"killed\\\" by unproperly prepared fugu.)

This episode is in Japanese with no subtitles.

Welcome aboard, Chen!

Even though this was such a short battle, this was one of the more memorable ones I've seen, especially as regards the challenger (whom Kaga simply referred to as Paolo for some reason). He seemed very relaxed, joking around with his translator and assistants (who were standing around with nothing to do most of the time!), and even having a short chat with Chen near the end. He was a funny guy, and I wish we could've seen more battle and more dishes from both of them. Alas, this is it.

A couple of things that were different: the A and B on the table to designate the dishes of the challenger and Iron Chef (who are still not present during judging at this point) and I thought the scrolling credits with video clips was neat! Wouldn't have minded if they'd kept that, actually, but it only appeared a couple of times. This was also the first time we saw the familiar intro video for an Iron Chef. That was nice to see.
