And since the French version probably won't help you...
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=22215 has 1-5, and the rest (6-8) should be in the RTS archives here. Scanlations are four chapters behind now, though.
Even 9 is scanlated and they are in the RTS threads; just dled them because bakaupdates listed the scanlations only up to to 6, so I didn't know they were out
The next 3 chapters need to be done.
Oaky, i've reread the first 9 chapters, and have reached an obvious conclusion.
The series IS a comedy. when it's not going for straight laced jokes with a sense of ironic unfunniness, the series is a parody of so many 80s manga, and is aware of how overpowered toriko is, in a homage to older series taht pulled off the same thing with a straight face.
but it's still not that good.
I think that might just be Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi's style.
well has anyone read that? it'd probably do us well to see what the heck his comedy stylings used to be eh
Of course it's intentionally funny! How could you miss the good-natured irony that runs so thick through it? Though maybe irony's not quite the right word.
And I think it's fantastic. If you don't, all I can say is too bad - I would love for everyone to be enjoying it as bloody much as I do
I merely felt the need to point that out in a counterance to sexyrandals adamance that we shouldn't view it as a comedy.
And who knows, it might have improved in all the chapters we're still waiting on
If it's so bad than why do I constantly find myself wanting the next chapter so badly after reading the newest one? T_T
I don't like day to day stuff. I do enjoy Toriko's little mini-arcs. They interest me greatly for some odd reason. And they do seem to be in an older style. Well, I like the old Jump style. It has a slight Fist of the North Star vibe to it, but WAY less serious.
well you're less cynical than me and prepared to love a series without that sort of niggling doubt that always keeps me from just reading, and gets my critical mind looking at the aspects that don't work and so forth. i'm too much of a critic to just be a laid back fan. i'm envious that you can find such joy in it.
and the mini arcs are a nice approach, and the current arc holds promise, if only for the possible outcomes approaching
Even I, loving the series, am angry it is getting a 3rd cover. That is just kind of ridiculous. They should give it to Psyren or Mago.
mago moreso with its tank sales. but yeah Toriko is being pimped to the nines (though i can believe that it's actually liked over there, despite my casual dislike of it)
Was Dragonball even pimped that much? Jesus.
considering the first four title pages all appear to have been coloured.......... still moreso
Well, at least Jump isn't over hyping it to the point of that then. That would be truly ludicrous.
