FINALLY! Crunchyroll finally uploaded they episode. I’ve been waiting you see. I wasn’t disappointed, either.  The only disappointment I got was in the subtitles. They were far to small, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the actual anime so…

The episode starts off with Yako stuffing her face with what, to me, looks like a chocolate covered omelet.  She gets a call from Neuro, making it obvious that they had already met. Turns out she’s already pretty famous as a detective.

They have a case, good thing too because Neuro’s a growin’ boy and needs his mysteries. >_>

They end up at a world renowned restaurant called Shiroto Supreme. It’s been Yako’s dream as a foodie to eat there. Now Shiroto, the owner, complains that he’s been getting threatening letters. SUDDENLY~ There’s a crash from the kitchen. When they get there Shiroto’s best Sous chief (Sous = Assistant, Iron chef = win) is dead on the floor, covered in…tomato sauce.

The police detectives, Sasazuka Eishi and Ishigaki Jun, that were already on the scene are convinced the killer came in through the back door and escaped. Yako, however, is much to preoccupied with the meal left on the counter. Shirota says she can eat it and…when she does…She says it’s an insult to her mouth.

Shiroto gets sort of mad…and veiny…and his eyes turn a bit bloodshot. He then fires Yako and Neuro and locks himself in the kitchen. Neuro suspects something and used One of 777 tools of the underworld to test what’s in the food. The riddle is on the tip of his tongue~ (Some day, I will find a way to use that line.)

The detectives, including the police, approach Shirota in the kitchen. Turns out he was the murderer! He used an ingenious tomato contraption to hold up the already dead body over a pot so it looked like he was alive when the police came. Anyway, it also turns out Shirota’s perfect food is made out of a cocktail of drugs.

What he does next, kids, teaches a lesson. You can interpret it as ‘Don’t do drugs. Period.’ or as ‘Only do one drug at a time. Period.’ Like mixing beer and hard liquor, don’t do it.

Shirota injects himself with his soup-food and becomes all ‘Incredible Hulk’ and tackles Neuro. Neuro, of course, being the demon that he is, just eats the riddle out of him. Causing his big muscular body to become frail and aged.

At the end we get an introduction to how Yako met Neuro, which was after her father’s death/murder. Now, if you wanted this episode to be in chronological manga order, you are disappointed. Yako meets Neuro > Cafe poison mystery > Yako’s father’s murderer > Shirota Supreme mystery.

Either way, I think they did a grand job with this episode.
