Sorry for the late post! As I've said in the OP section, my computer's kaput for the moment so internet access is limited on my end. Anyway:

It's shounen (or whatever), don't get bothered by it haha.

I agree on that last page though, god damn.

Hell, Teppei will be missed...

Kay, so, what bothers me the most: not so much the fact that the people were still alive, but the fact that nobody died after falling on a pile of other people from that kind of height. Hair net aside, landing on others wouldn't cut your fall...anyway.

I literally laughed out loud when I noticed how the chapter juxtaposed the unrealistically convenient conclusion of the arc with that ominous final page. They almost got me there.

BTW, I also kinda like how it's been implied that Toriko's fork and knife attacks were also manifestations of his appetite. It's a goofy explanation for sure, but I still think it sort of makes sense considering how zany this series is in the first place.


Anyway, a lot of people aren't going to be very happy about Teppei's demise (particularly Jirou and Yosaku).....

I liked that approach, after all Toriko has always been one to be motivated by hunger, so it makes sense that all of his attacks possess a certain amount of 'appetite'. It also complements his autophagy recovery and need to eat - rather than eating himself in order to regain stamina, the fear of death expedites his gluttony to reach another level, thus instantly going full-power.

Man it can't be Teppei seriously side dish for that mysterious man right? At least I wanted to see the fruit of his training and his fight before he become a human salad like that. That was brutual and this chapter would made more chapter if those dozen of people digested by the friggin four beast. Seriously it was really strange and weird chapter.

Nice, the author doesn't limit himself with Toriko by the fact that it is shonen, aimed for kids ....unlike One Piece, a manga supposed to be about Pirates but barely anyone dies or gets injured heavily.

Cannibalism is finally here. What would a manga about food be without it?

One Piece actually has a high death toll and Zoro's injuries are always ridiculous, but whatever.

I'd say it's been here ever since Komatsu discovered the Nitro book, though I suppose this is the first actual...dish. Love the sparkling effect on something so unnatural.

Kind of ironic you're saying this despite the fact that the thousands of people that were eaten all shown to have survived in one piece this chapter (no pun intended, BTW).


But yeah, I still find Teppei's demise pretty darned shocking, nonetheless.....

Well damn =/ What was that about his scar growing? Meh, whatever, looks like Ichiryuu will be cooking some air, using Melk's refined kitchenware Komatsu's rating went up, but I have to say that the way Setsu talks about him, it feels like she's saying "yeah it was no big deal, the ingredients just told him what to do", which kinda undermines his cooking skill. Could have been played out a bit better there.

Toriko's got a long death list, right from ch.1! Didn't anyone feel sorry for the poor galala-wani back then? :P

^That's..... an interesting idea. I kinda doubt it, though. Remember, reviving humans from death is only supposed to be possible through Acacia's appetizer. So unless the mystery man actually had that on him, I don't think it's possible he killed Teppei and revived him through another method.....


Anyways, that sure is one crazy "kitchen knife" that Ichiryuu was wielding there.....
