As Azuma and Team Pantasia compete in the eleventh round of the "Yakitate!! 25" bread battle, they realize that a reaction to an eggy creation has transformed judge Kuro-yan into Pantasia's archenemy, Kirisaki! Azuma tries buttering him up to roll back the team's imminent defeat, but in the process a shocking truth about their shared history is revealed! A rare type of flour just may soothe the wounds of the past - but will going against the grain help Azuma and his team or just cause more bitter feelings?
