We could make a topic for thing we spot after a second read, like early foreshadowing and clues, linking to the page and chapter when it was first addressed and when it became relevant again (and if)
What thing? The post that gave me the idea? I don´t know, nor care. That parody reminded me of that spongebob scene, and so I used it.
i found a clue cedre, when komatsu mentioned toriko's name
midora was like to..ri..ko..
midora is toriko's father?
His uncle, well, adopted. But his uncle nonetheless. I´m sure Ichiryuu told him he adopted four kids.
LOL, awesome picture out there, Cedre-san!! Applies to Hokuto no Ken as well...
le me currently and actually re-reading... At chapter 35, beaut'ful memories revived!

And one of the funniest moments
I´m currently at volume 6 on my reread and I can´t help but laugh when I read things like "the troll kong (cl 9) is the strongest ape on earth!"
Dude, how about the ones at the sky plant, Air Gorilla, cl 40?
Or King Landler right at the beginning of gourmet world. I don't think a lot of foresight was put into the types of beasts he'd be dealing with later lol but that's been a common thing people mention about Toriko. Toriko's reputation at the start of the manga compared to the levels of the beasts he could fight seems way off considering the capture levels that's we've been seeing ever since.
I mean Human World. I bet when they say "this critter is the strongest/most dangerous X in the world!" they mean the human world, as only some elivte members have knowledge of the creatures within the GW
But yeah, I find really REALLY hard to believe only someone of Toriko level could deal with a critter over cl 5, even if it was the beggining of the series...
Oh, that's true since Gourmet World is basically unexplored taboo that was explained in the chapter when he first went there I think looking back, the capture level system seems consistent but it's just as I said that it feels as if the characters involved have progressed in an odd way alongside it as stronger beasts have appeared. Toriko was this famous Bishokuya yet he could only deal with relatively low tier ingredients while practically every chef we've seen so far would have put him to shame. There isn't really any reason to think those chefs were any weaker then either. I guess the reason he did discover so many ingredients is because of his overwhelming tenacity for what he does compared to others who perhaps saw it as simply a job.
I agree with you, tho it was implied than Toriko was beyond able to deal effortlessly with critters like the Galala Gator and Troll Kongs. He got sorta rusty because he wasn´t really in a hurry, so he was just hunting for himself in nearby places, which have an average cl. of 4-7. Coco and Sunny´s Full Course Meals were the best indicator of their current level atm, and Toriko was surely to have a similar level as well (inbetween 25-35 cl).
The moment the Bishokukai started fucking shit up, and then Grin told him GOD was bound to appear sooner than later, was when Toriko started getting serious.
I dont know if someone mention this but Grinparch has got 1 more pair of hands from beginig, he now has 6 hands.

We all know, it was quite noticeable. He got the extra pair on ch. 211
But are you updated nowadays? You gotta be careful when lurking forums if you aren´t updated yet.
