It seems the Century Soup arc is coming to a close, possibly before chapter 100.

I had a feeling the penguin's saliva would be the final ingredient when it first drooled last chapter. Would have been more interesting if the penguin meat was the ingredient! Soup v. companion!

Ah, so there's a Toriko thread after all! This is definitely one of my top favorite shonen series right now! As for my favorite storyline, it's definitely the recent Century Soup arc! Anyway, I checked out the raw for chapter 111. I haven't seen any translation yet, but from what I can make out so far....

Whoever it is I'm expecting them to be strong enough to get Toriko out of the bind he's in.

I like the Gourmet World concept, how it encompasses more Earth than the Human World and the extreme dangers it inhabits. Reminds me of the New World from One Piece. I wonder if we'll still see capture levels on the beasts.

^ Capture levels are rather subjective and I doubt they could be used to effectively describe the types of beasts and plants (definitly don't forget about the plants) that a person would face in the Gourmet World. But if they had to apply levels, I suspect many of the things there would be over 100, and who knows how high it'll go (I'm sure at least one person is going to say 9000 ).

Yeah, pretty much my thoughts exactly. Of course, the difference here is that unlike Luffy, Toriko was too impatient to train. And yeah, I want to see what insanely high capture levels the GW's creatures have, as well.



As far as the guy following Toriko to the GW goes..... my best guess is that it's the fourth (unrevealed) king, Zebra.

I'm under the impression Zebra is still in some form of imprisonment or arrest. He clearly has the most notorious background of the 4 Kings that requires Teppei to capture him, and he's specifically excluded from the mention of 'training.' Besides, while I believe that Zebra is probably the strongest of the 4 Kings at this juncture, having another King save Toriko is kind of demeaning to their overall balance of power.

I'm interested though, in knowing how the 4 Heavenly Kings title came about and how the 4 of them became specifically that famous. ( outside of being great Bishokuyas ) At first I thought it was their strength, but then suddenly we see them outclassed by a sizable number of people and monsters.

Well, I sorta figured that Zebra might be out and about since Ichiryuu told Toriko that he's free to invite him to the GW, as well (and notice that Toriko was also surprised when the prez made that suggestion, which may lend some credence to that theory). However, I wouldn't be surprised if Zebra would be put under strict probation/surveillance if that's the case (Teppei or Yosaku would probably be the ones watching him since they captured him in the first place). As for the power balance thing, you do have a point. Still, I don't think it's too much of a problem in this case since it was already kinda implied in the first place that Zebra stood out the most amongst the four heavenly kings (and besides, Toriko will most likely surpass him at some point anyway, so we might as well enjoy his hooliganism until that time comes! ).



Anyways, the new chapter isn't out yet, but the spoilers are:

I thought the over 80 beasts atleast are from the Gourmet World but now with the "unmeaserable numbers" its kinda exceeded my thoughts of the Gourmet World.
I like the "powerlevels" to atleast give of an idea of how strong a beast is. Now the GM where it really matters doesnt have one?

Also i dont like how cut of the GM is. I know it is really dangerous but atleast a few people in the worlds history should be capable of atleast kinda "categorize" and "taste" the things there to give it a worth.

With things like the seven taste fruit or the bb-korn or the soup etc. how can the GM top it off? The strongest peoples "food-menu-list" is filled with food they could get in the "save-parts".

Nethertheless it is an awesome manga with a great concept ( i wish i could eat the things there ). I wonder how the mangaka will handle the GM.

I wonder how Komatsu is supposed to go with Toriko and help cook food for him if not even Toriko at his current level can survive the GW.

Ah, nearly forgot to comment on the latest chapter! Yep, Jirou was awesome here, as expected. And I too wonder how Komatsu will be able to adapt to the GW, considering Jirou even tells Toriko that he'll need the chef's help when exploring there.....

The part that bug me was that how did Komatsu KNEW that Toriko is going to the GW since it was Komatsu that beg Jirou to go save Toriko?
