Never really read it, but the art looked pretty awful, after so much years I wonder how long it take for the author to draw a full chapter, shit must be Bob Ross tier up to eleven.

What was Acacia implying when he thought that Toriko figured it out?

Jump Ryu is a series where they show mangaka while they're drawing, giving viewers a look into their workspace and their methods of drawing. Akimoto-sensei is one of the next mangaka to be presented.

the public (Japanese readers) even admitted this manga had a shaky start because so many things were out of places. But after a few years, things become stable and became very consistent.

So I finally caught up from the first chapter after reading from chapter 360~ (and then rereading those).

Somehow I am not upset at the pacing as I thought I'd be. Also, what the FUCK was that ghost world mumbo jumbo about near the end of capturing and cooking Another?
>>
>>147525172
which is why there has to be something post acacia. The guys had like 3 power ups during this battle already, I enjoy how crazy everythings gotten but I don't know if he should get any more
same with toriko him getting access to his other demons during this fight might be too fast for even this pace

The boss of all nitros still didn't appear.
The universe of the 3rd demon and 2nd demon still not be explored.

End game my ass. Acacia is just some gate-keeper for greater journey.

>>147526404
Yeah, it's awesome. Nowadays it's always the same with some bullshit villian that have some bullshit sob story for being a shit. While it is interesting to see many of them are are so shitty done that it's just garbage, especially in shounen.

Finally we're getting pure scumbag villains that are just pure scum, being evil just to be evil like the good old days. Hell, I'm actually glad Shima is such a big fan of dragon ball cause Acacia is straight out of Frieza.
I just hope that none of this is an act or anything and Acacia is just pure evil on his own.
>>
>>147529439
3x bigger? Uhh, I'm pretty sure that's just the human world itself. Bambina's country was supposingly the size of our earth, being 840 million square kilometer.

If anything their world is pretty much a smaller scale versions n of Jupiter.

Aside from the feats, its basically at the same level as FT.

The way Toriko got handed GOD was very generic and Acaccia is more boring than Zeref, Acnologia and the Spriggans.
>>
>>147530662
Anon. If you have a 2x2cm square, the area of that square is 4cm²
If you have a 6x6cm square, the area of that square is 36cm²

A planet 3x bigger has way more than just 3x the ammount of square kilometer. The world of Toriko is 3,33x bigger than the Earth.

>>147531517
How is Acacia (a throwback to actively evil and irredeemable villains like Dio, Frieza, etc etc) worse than "muh lost love, muh curse", "edgy mcEdge" and "we're supposed to be cool people but we aren't and we'll never ever do anything worthwhile because we'll all get defeated by the main characters while they won't suffer any losses at all"?
Toriko also actually has cool moments and nice figthing scenes while Fairy Tail's best moments don't even come close to Toriko's worst.
>>
>>147531664
>They kinda seem to try that angle, but the whole "openly cheating" part crushed it flat
I don't really follow, how is he openly cheating?
>>
>>147531794
When he didn't even bother to hide his affairs from his wife
>>
>>147531794
Openly cheating on his wife he means.
He didn't only leave everything behind to focus on his lust for food, he just is a massive asshole.
>>
>>147531822
>>147531845
Ah right, I forgot that. I thought you meant cheating as in fighting dirty or something like that.
>>
>>147531873
Well the way he killed Jirou seemed kind of dirty, but when he's the one who taught Jirou all his moves I suppose it's fair
>>
>>147531758
I think the difference between the FT fighting scenes and Toriko is that despite asspulls most of the time the villians were ACTUALLY a match and was more than just bullshit power of friendship. I give up on Fairy tail during that magic game when Natsu just magically took down rouge and sting, despite all the hype that they were much stronger.

Hell, half the time Toriko lost to the villians but still gained something out of it which is pretty damn awesome. The sheer brutality is also pretty amazing, especially the whole Tommyrod and Starjun fight.
It's just a shame that it was Toei that animated it. Any other anime studio would have done a bit more decent job.
>>
>>147531664
I think that was more of just to piss Midora off. Whther he did or not doesn't matter really but just watching his fuck with his most emotionally unstable and spson with oedipus complex was pretty fucking funny.

Not gonna lie, I probably would have done the same.

>>147532269

Fuck yes

Also I do think Acacia has to eat Earth, otherwise he stands no chance against Toriko now.
It isn't even a match.

I am pretty sure now that Neo, in his own universe, is nothing but a pleb tier being.

>>147531206
Dropped fairy tail at the friendship power up near chapter 100 (some kind of crystal tower and the story was Ezra focused, think an owl guy was one of the generals).

It's so cliche and executed so badly.
>>
>>147531758

He is a slightly less boring version of Ywach, Shima needs to learn from Kishi, who can a least make good villains aside from Kaguya(Obito, Madara, Nagato).

>>147533625
You keep being wrong again and again. Ywach and Acacia are nowhere near the same kind of archetype. Not only that, but Obito, Madara and Nagato were all badly writen characters no matter how you want to put it. Their characterization presented multiple contradictions and the execution of their story arcs was amazingly bad.
You gotta read more manga if you don't want your opinions to be ignored again and again.
>>
>>147533715
Yeah, and FT pulled it off poorly. I could handle friendship power ups in other series of all kinds like shonen and kids shows, but man.

Man, some Ingredients of Toriko's full course really feels out of place. Does finding a better one to replace it never happens for a full course? I have a hard time believing they couldn't get better ingredient to replace the early ones.
>>
>>147533987
It's not about being the best ingredient of all time for that specific category, otherwise everyone would have Acacia's course.
It's ingredients that resonate with the character in question and for Toriko every one of those ingredients is something special.
>>
>>147533987
Look at it this way: A strawberry from your garden can be the best in the world, despite there being more expensive or harder to acquire strawberries.
>>
>>147534086
Yeah, but would there really not be other ingredients that resonate even better? Anything you find in the human world is supposed to be cheap as fuck compared to the gourmet ones.

And talking about the human world, since Setsuno was already out of commission since Midora's return, I have a hard time believing the attacks from the NeoAcacia vs Midora/Toriko didn't harm it.
>>
>>147533987
Also for example the Billion Bird Egg wasn't just a simple egg, it came from an animal that was praised for its existence for the first time and it showed all the gratitude it received in form of its eggs.
Toriko's full course is essentially "Gratitude".

It seems like something happens with Acacia and Neo (at least I understood it like this) and it seems like they will switch places with Neo eating Acacia for full revive + power-up. Then he can eat true Neo and not Acacia hand with Neo cells in it.
