You hype yet?
Jesus 2 great chapters in a row, I'm almost starting to think he wont completely job. He will lose most likely but he might do permanent damage to him for toriko can co to take advantage of.
>finally reach your true original form with full access to your power
>first technique is shaking your opponent to death
>raise some random human baby
>feed him high quality shit
>he betrayed you, tear out your fang and join some hot shot human gaijin and never see you again
Being Guinness is suffering
It's the pacing. The end of last chapter was a huge "shit hits the fan" moment, but then the first half of this chapter is people standing still calmly explaining fairly subtle concepts of reincarnation and the growth of power through the development of preservation methods.
A good writer would find a way to explain that some other way, or just trust that the audience understand what's going. Maybe have a nitro shout "We don't have to kill you when we can cook you!" or some shit.
>"We don't have to kill you when we can cook you!"
Except without knowing the context that would have looked like absolute shit.
But I understand how you feel, after all it's the first time in the history of fiction a villain stops at a dramatic moment to explain their background/master plan/philosophy. I was in shock too.
Holy fucking shit. I love how they still made him human like in the fight. He was still getting hit. He was still getting hurt. He was still bleeding.
It's just that he didn't give a single fuck about all of it.
What an absolute madman.
So his hair turned blonde?
We have the context. A few chapters ago Toriko opened that golden can to find a preserved ancient creature, a while back Blue Nitro explained that their plan was to revive Neo so they could trap it forever in a golden can, and last fucking chapter they asked for a golden can-opener to prepare the golden can.
>But I understand how you feel, after all it's the first time in the history of fiction a villain stops at a dramatic moment to explain their background/master plan/philosophy. I was in shock too.
And 90% of the time it's shit. Put explanations in quiet period, then have the action actually flow together without stopping and starting.
Midora is baby tier to be honest.
His meteor attack comes from the gourmet demon and not from himself, and still it has less of an impact than the knocking Jirou does.
Jirou could destroy the Earth.
Either Midora is still holding back, or there is no whatsoever evidence that he is stronger than Jirou.
really? I thought the dragon king's treatment is a lot worse.
>first appearance is its fang
>but its fossilized fang becomes the main material for Komatsu's new kitchen knife
>was referred as the dragon that dominated the entire world
>later, it is known that Derous rules the Earth ALONG with other eight kings.
>its offspring makes a small appearance in Midora's backstory.
>only two panels of appearances in gourmet world arc.
>other eight kings have their kick ass moments by either demolishe the protagonists or annihilate the Neo blobs. Yet, has no showcase in power.
>Its fate remain unknown.
I feel bad for this dragon.
Yeah, and before we saw that a nitro could sense and escape Midora's hungry space with no problem. Ichiryuu might have held back but he couldn't do that, and here we saw what multiple nitro's could do against Jirou.
They're actually ridiculously strong, check out that crust peeler attack. See the tiny thing in the lower right? That's the kitchen where they're fighting. Mantle Shock was also pretty damn strong.
It's just that, compared to Jirou, these fuckers might as well be flies. Jirou is just too damn strong.
yep, the author really does not like dragon in general. Most of time, the dragons are either some fodder levels enemies that got defeated off-screen or some power level units.
It's both Neo and Acacia. Neo is Acacia's cell demon, and by consuming the dishes on Acacia's full course, Neo can manifest his physical body through Acacia's cells, turning Acacia into Neo. The only fish he hasn't eaten yet is God, which is due to arrive soon.
Don Slime is similar in that Asarudy ate the entire full course beforehand, reviving Don Slime entirely. But because Neo is some antimatter demon or something, Don Slime ended up getting trounced and eaten instead.
Nope, he is not.
He is just a host to those 3 demons, but those 3 demons will never reach their full potential like the times they were actually alive.
It's not him being above, but the demons living insides of him being above Jirou.
find something quite interesting.
It seems Jirou takes a life orb from a blue nitros just in case.
You might have noticed that he was decapitated and still alive.
I'm going to be as much ass blasted as i was when Ichi died when Jirou inevitably jobs to NEO so the other four can shine.
I mean, come on, Ichi was confirmed to be able to solo NEO if he wanted, and Jirou just knocked time like it was nothing.
Every week this manga keeps doing this goofy stuff and i keep loving it.
>They end up fighting on Mars or some shit
>Jirou punches the planet into Neo
>Neo and Mars fly inward and impact with Venus, destroying both planets
>Mercury is caught in the explosion and is destroyed too
>Setsuna and Sunny deflect the shockwave and debris away from Earth
Acacia is unimpressed
I want it this crazy. I really do.
It's weird how Jirou has to use knocking when that bubble fucker from the four beast arc could do it instantly and would never die like Jirou. They had to use appetite energy to even kill the guy.
I don't think that's how it works. Strong or not, Jirou is human. He was bleeding and taking damage in the fight. So clearly there's a threshold. And the balls automatically break if the holder takes fatal damage, iirc. Pretty sure the authout showed us the panel just for this cool scene.
Ichiryuu was able to regenerate his body, so Jirou should be able to.
Although Ichiryuu was acting really odd, so it's hard to gauge his abilities. He apparently ran out of energy regenerating even though he should have tons of energy.
>He apparently ran out of energy regenerating even though he should have tons of energy.
Ichiryuu ate shit food, lived like a monk more or less compared to the others.
He has never reached his full potential thus like Don Slime stated before.
I want Ichiryu to save the day and not Toriko.
He has a bottomless stomach
He's never sated
He just keeps eating
Post yfw the manga ends with Neo/Acacia getting sated by eating something, probably something shitty, from Komatsu
Jirou is human but then again not.
Those blue nitros want to preserve Jirou into the same can they wanted to use on Neo.
Speaks volumes about Jirou. He cannot be easily killed.
He has probably eaten so many gourmet cells, that he has got a huge fucking HP bar by now.
The person is the container for the demons, that means he has to have enough potential to handle them.
Toriko by the end of the series will be stronger than all 3 oni combined.
Just like ichiryuu would have been way stronger than Don if he ate more food instead of beans.
>when the HP bar goes past screen boundaries
On a side note, Jirou's hair is still growing. It was longer than last chapter 100% Jirou.
I love the face of news, its like
A Toriko thread on /a/? What the fuck? I remember getting banned for making one of these years ago because the reason was "Posting a shit manga.". Is Toriko finally accepted on /a/? This is great!
So is Toriko building into a new arc? There's all the shit about the Four Kings gourmet demons subjugating and eating entire planets, and when stuff like that was discussed in previous chapters it always lead to something new.
Kind of niche, there's not many cute girls for people to fawn over and doesn't really take itself seriously, at all, which is both awesome and hilarious. One thread usually last a day or two each release(basically once a week), not much else to discuss other times.
nah, it gets shit on because...
1.one piece oda force his reader to endorse toriko's author and 4chan don't like shilling
2.It's anime is FUCKING TERRIBLE. Like censorship and removed humor scene. Is like japanese version of 4kids style cartoon.
3.the usual shitposter who likes to shitpost new and popular shit until everyone is tired of their bullshit
It's still a shit manga though, girls or not. Instead of girls anons fawn over how stronk this character is. Lately, Jirou has been getting a lot of screen time, and seeing as he is one of the strongest in the series, faggots have been wanking over him. Probably the same crowd that watches DBS.
what it needs is more food porn, food science, food endorsement, food romance and melk II
Melk has no chance of ever winning the matsu
>introduce as setsuno's assistant
>chubby and fluffy, looks like a fap material
>no abilities were shown
>still goes after komatsu
the same goes with Rin, well Rin is the worst girl by far. Seriously, author sucks with woman in this manga.
But they showed her ability multiple times. She's an ice mage.
not enough information though. HOW did she froze all that shit? why does it had an ability name? Not even setsuno's pressure cooking technique has an explanation. Rin's boring ability was given a shit tons of screen time however.
I said probably. They're pretty similar and has a lot of "They can destroy the world and universe!" going on, but nothing ever happens.
What they needed was to slow things down.
>Blue nitro hype dead
>8 Kings hype dead - they already collected part of Acacia's full course from almost all the continents without ever confronting them
>Midora hype dead - he is one of the good guys now even after destroying most of the human world and indirectly causing Ichirou's death
>Barely any descriptions of the food. Scrub human world food like the jeweled meat looks better than gourmet world shit.
Jirou will likely lose to show how strong Acacia is, and then he is all there is left. The series will probably end with them going to outer space.
Do you know how some works "jump the shark"?
Well, Toriko did jump the shark because it was tastier eaten flying, and is now going completely bonkers with so much over-the-top over-the-topness
Toriko readers is now read because PIC RELATED
It's a big world, anon. You'll never be alone as long as you keep looking.
>He can knock concepts
Quick, name every concept you can think of
I mean fuck, that's just off the top of my head. What even is this guy's upper limit?
Knocking on heaven's door
MY FUCKING HEART. I CAN'T TAKE THIS.
>Come into a new universe
>Rampaging cell demon has laid waste to the resident galaxy
>Live for millions of years preparing to seal said demon
>Said demon eats one of your friends before your eyes, someone that you knew for millions of years
>Super young member of a new species decides to fight
>He no-sells your attacks and kills another one of your friends, before launching yet another into deep space
>Try to avenge them
>Get paralyzed forever
I'm talking about Pair, not Atom.
He's also the first Blue Nitro we ever see.
I think he's talking about the big bang punch. You see it tears his arm while he's prepping it. He hits the blue nitro with his left arm and is holding his left arm when he says that.
He calls it technique and he was smiling when using Big Bang. He uses Guiness Punch immediately afterwards wuth the same arm and was still smiling. It'd be a weird place to mention a drawback after performing a technique that had nothing to do with it.
>8 king hype dead
worth the wait
>Stop in a local star system to refuel and get your bearings
>Navigators report colossal worm-like creature extending from a nearby planet, on a collision course
>Before you can react all you see is darkness
>The ship slowly begins to melt, and you with it
Could be one of the unnamed ones, assuming the last two aren't the same.
Shounen Jump Issue 19:
Boku no Hero Academia
Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san
Shokugeki no Souma
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kouen-mae Hashutsujo
Kimetsu no Yaiba
Saiki Kusuo no Sainan
So Jirou's head has a life orb in it I'm guessing, the one he took from the first one he applied Head Shaker to. Too bad that were no frame where you can see the guy he Big Bang'd fly into space and into the moon or something.
That's the first time Shima fucked up his own fucked up sense of proportions, unless it's the translator's fault. 22 km is nothing on real Earth, outer space doesn't begin until roughly 10,000 km above sea level. And Mother Snake is supposed to be able to circle the whole planet, which has a diameter of about 200,000 km
I think 2 million kim woiuld be a more appropriate lenght for Mother Snake
I love how Midora killed Toriko's adoptive father (well not really, but only him and the Blue Nitro know what really went down), destroyed every ingredient in human world, kidnapped hundreds of people, wrecked IGO's leadership, headed a terrorist organization for possibly centuries but Toriko was fine about making friends with him as soon as his waifu was safe.
