In the seventh round of the Yakitate!! 25 baking competition, an old rival of Kawachi's comes back to challenge him again. After his first defeat, the bitter loser abandoned his family to live in the forest with wild pigs--which could very well give him an edge in the latest competition. Can the Pantasia team trust that Kawachi's ham-handedness won't ruin their chances of taking home the bacon? Meanwhile, sweet, syrupy danger awaits, as a Dutch cook with a thing for flapjacks prepares to beat Pantasia with pancakes!
