"Why are you after the Century Soup?" Komatsu asked.
Everyone who listened to his question couldn't help but look at Komatsu.
"Ah, ah, you don't need to tell me when it is very private," Komatsu said.
"Hmph," Match walked to his tent.
"What's wrong with him?" Tsunade was a bit annoyed.
"Please, don't say bad things about him, even though, he is like that but he is very kind," his subordinate said and added, "Match, wants to bring the Century Soup to his hometown, Nerg City."
"What is Nerg City?" Luffy asked.
"It is the biggest slum district in Jidar Country," Toriko explained.
"Slum? Oh, similar to my hometown before," Luffy said while eating meat.
"You're also from the slum?" The people of Gourmet Yakuza asked.
"Though the trash has been burning, it is true that the place is a slum before," Luffy said while remembering something. He remembered his brother who died after that burning incident in his hometown.
Haru who was his expression though that he should tell him that Sabo was still alive.
They nodded and didn't ask when they saw his expression.
"Our boss, Match, wants every kid in the slum to eat delicious food, he needs Century Soup to do that, at the same time, we want to repay the kindness that he has given to use in the past."
"Even though his face is scary, I guess he is a softie inside," Haru said.
"Hahaha, that's true," they laughed in response.
"What about you Takimaru?" Toriko asked.
"Eh?" Takimaru looked at him.
"I mean, we're talking about Century Soup here, it's a little meaty and extravagant for the vegetarian teaching of the Gourmet Knight," Toriko said.
Takimaru smiled and said, "I need money, a lot of it and for something from LIFE the country of healing, I need to buy a medicine that they sell there."
They looked at him.
"Medicine? Which medicine?" Toriko asked.
"It's a medicine that's said that could cure any disease," Toriko said.
Haru and Tsunade didn't say anything since they weren't sure about the disease and even though they had known each other for a few days, they didn't have an obligation to help him, even though it sounded very cruel but that was the reality. Both of them didn't even want to give him false hope and they also knew that the disease in this world was different from their world. They weren't even sure whether they could help him.
Takimaru also didn't say anything to them since a normal doctor couldn't cure this disease. He knew that even though his teaching forbidden him to use a panacea, he needed to get that medicine for someone important to him.
"Don't worry, we will get that Century Soup together," Toriko said with a smile.
"Yeah, don't worry, we will get that Century Soup!"
"Yes, we will eat it together."
The atmosphere became cheerful and they continued to eat.
"What about the three of you?" Toriko asked.
"Us? We only want to eat it," Luffy said.
"Yeah, that was our objection and we shared it with our friend back," Tsunade said.
Haru also nodded in agreement.
"Hahaha, then we're the same, no matter what, we will get this Century Soup," Toriko smiled.
They laughed and took a rest in their camp while thinking about their own reason.
Haru knew that they would become a competitor tomorrow and he was ready for it. Even though he knew that they had their own important mission. He also needed this Century Soup or else he couldn't go back to his world.
Haru was in his own tent but he couldn't sleep. He sighed and thought that this world was very dangerous. He couldn't open the group chat and checked the power of his enemy. He only knew that there would be three enemies that would attack them. He remembered that the two of them were quite weak but there was a middle boss character that came together with them. Also, the power of each person in this world was a bit abstract and it was hard to tell whether they were stronger or weaker.
"Haru, have you slept yet?" Tsunade asked.
"Not yet, what's wrong?" Haru asked.
"I'm not sure, but I feel really bad taking that soup now," Tsunade said.
Haru also understood that a woman was thinking about using their emotions rather than their logic.
Tsunade, who had heard their sob story, couldn't help but get emphatic toward them. She only came because she wanted to have recreation and eat the Century Soup. She didn't have a deep reason similar to both Takimaru and Match who wanted to help someone.
Haru turned toward her and said, "You don't need to think too much, the amount of Century Soup is quite a lot, we can eat it together and even share it with everyone in the group."
"Now that you mention it," Tsunade nodded and felt better. She heard his explanation was quite logical and it was easy to understand. She looked at him and said, "You're really good at making a girl comfortable, huh?"
Haru rubbed his nose, "I don't have that kind of intention but you can interpret to your imagination."
Tsunade snorted, "I'm several years older than you."
"Age is just a number, and what is important is the feeling," Haru said.
"Alright, you need to sleep, we need to get up in the morning," Tsunade turned and said.
Haru smiled and closed his eyes only suddenly he heard a commotion.
BOOOM! BOOOM! BOOOM! BOOOM!
Everyone was startled and got out of their tent.
"What is happening?"
They saw that there was smoke coming out from a distance.
Haru knew that it was the villains of this world, "We need to move."
"Agree, let's pack everything up and start to move," Toriko said.
They didn't reject the idea and started to pack their luggage to move.
The wall penguin also followed them.
They were running until they heard a sound coming from behind.
Bzzt! Bzzt! Bzzt! Bzzt!
Toriko turned and squinted his eyes. He saw something that was flying toward them, "Look out!"
Haru also saw a group of vicious bugs with scary, sharp, and strong talons moving toward them. He knew that one attack from it would shred his skin and body. He couldn't run since that meant he would leave everyone. He decided to stop and fight. He started to create several zippers from his surroundings.
The zipper started to move and created a large net with the protruding metal which was moving similar to a chainsaw.
