    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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.

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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

    Unconsciousness is my destiny, my joy but also my desperation.

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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.

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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.

    Re: Toriko by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi

    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)

    Well, at least Jump isn't over hyping it to the point of that then. That would be truly ludicrous.
