Gourmet 193 is called "The Members of Biotope 0."

Quick Summary[]

The president of IGO, Ichiryu gathers and sits down with the members of Biotope 0, who are some of the strongest individuals in the world. After a short debriefing they begin to head off further into the Gourmet World preparing to collect Acacia's Full Course Menu now that information has leaked to the criminal organization known as the Gourmet Corp. about the 8th ingredient. Ichiryu entrusts the protection of the Human World to the Four Heavenly Kings. Meanwhile, at the Gourmet Corp.'s Gourmet World Headquarters, Midora is seen eating in preparation of the upcoming war with Ichiryu.

Long Summary[]

Gathering on the Cloud Tree[]

Biotope 0 is the top-secret IGO facility where research and development of ingredients goes on, including the study of the Nitro. Inside the facility, the Biotope's staff have gathered in the dinning hall. Guemon happily states that it has been a while since all the members of Biotope 0 have been gathered together; however, Malisman remarks that Master Chin Chinchin is not present and questions Guemon's memory. While Guemon comedically looks around for Master Chin, Malee asks Ichiryu if it is true whether or not Master Chin was actually attacked, which the President confirms and then begins to address the reason why everyone was called.

Kuriboh states that he finds it hard to believe that Master Chin would be delayed by a fight and accurately predicts that it had to be a Gourmet Corp. attack and that they probably used "cowardly tactics" in said fight. Warden Love dismisses the fact that he would die and states there is no need to worry about it. Manan then questions Ichiryu as to why the meeting was called, and the President says that the Gourmet Corp. has become aware of Acacia's Hors d'Oeuvre, CENTER. This revelation temporarily shocks and silences the room. Tack and Megarodras both comment on the ingredient while Goblin Ramon calls it the ultimate revitalization ingredient and Sakura questions why the Gourmet Corp. has such information.

Ichiryu then jokingly states that one of the members leaked said information which again silences the room. Rapp, however, dismisses the joke and states that there is a suspicious member, one who joined most recently, Ryuu. Yosaku quckly comes to his defense stating that he personally brought in Ryuu and that Ryuu would not betray them like that. Ichiryu dismisses this claim and states that their goal is now gathering Acacia's Full Course Menu and asks Rala if he has narrowed down the date for the Gourmet Eclipse. Rala responds that it will be in six months at the earliest. Ichiryu remarks that that is a short period of time and asks Yosaku how close he is to reviving EARTH, Melk the First how his progress with the AIR cutting knife is coming along, and Kousairou how close he is to finding the location of ATOM. Yosaku tells him that he will need one more month, while Melk, through Manan who is actually able to hear his small voice, relays that said knife is complete, and Kousairou states that they have nearly cracked it.

Ichiryu states that he is counting on Atashino to prepare ATOM and that the members should prepare themselves for a possible war with the Gourmet Corp. and that they should hand over any work they have in the Human World to their successors which is met with resounding agreement. Yosaku and Goblin Ramon assert their intentions of having fun with the upcoming task while Tack states that while it is foolish to fight over food, there is no choice if the opponent is the Gourmet Corp. Rala later states to the President that "He" will become active as the Eclipse draws near and that the Four Beast is waking from its hundred year slumber, and shows concern for the Human World because they will not be able to protect it due to their current duties. Ichiryu dismisses these concerns saying that the Four Beasts are Four Heavenly Kings' final training ingredients and that there are some disciples safe to leaving the Human World to. He also comments to Rala that the Gourmet Corp. have acquired some chefs. Rala then states that after they acquire many skilled chefs they will probably attack the Human World simultaneously with the war against Biotope 0. He then reveals that in one month at Cooking Fest, the greatest gathering of world chefs, the Gourmet Corp. will probably appear and attack to acquire more chefs. Ichiryu regretfully decides to send a member of the Biotope to prevent such an attack. Kousairou shockingly volunteers and states, "Chefs are treasures of the Gourmet Age," to which Ichiryu relates that he is counting on him. Rala states that they can rest easy on the Human World subject but regrets that the military force of the Biotope will decrease due to Kousairou's absence. Kuriboh is then called by the President.

Midora's Preparation[]

At the Gourmet Corp.'s Gormet World Headquarters, Starjun is seen in the kitchen preparing Bubble Fruit. He tastes it but disappointedly states that it is wrong, implying that he has been working on the dish for a while. Midora is shown eating a meal with a mountain of bones behind him as he adds to the collection asking, "Now...are you coming Old Man...?"
