I guess DBZ is copying Fist of the North Star then.
essentially every musclebound shonen is ripping off FotNS, so that's partially true :P
anyway, moving back onto Toriko, this last arc has been pretty good stuff, and shows how this satirical-under-the-skin action series can do decent scale scenes without ever feeling all that serious
Yeah, it was a very solid arc. I'm looking forward to the one starting in this week's chapter - I've glanced at a few pages in Jump but don't want to spoil it entirely so I'm waiting until the translation comes out.
just read chapter 18
the gourmet police sounds cool xD
nice chapter that one!
I like Coco. His poison gun doesn't seem to be very flashy though. That makes it not look too powerful.
chapter 19 was somewhat odd in the way it kinda jumped very quickly onwards, looking forward to seeing where it goes though xD
19 has comitted a fuck up to me, the whole jump past the gourmet police's encounter with hairything(tm) is just a pain. i wanted to see that more than..... more exposition
Spoil chapter 20 is Kewl make a summary ^^
Hopefully this will make my translation of the whole thing easier...
Right, spoiler tags...
thanks Kewl, Toriko's World is crazy
Animal Fight, new specie, IGO is a sorcerer
Interesting news....Shuesha is releasing Toriko volumes 1 AND 2 next month. They really must be pushing this series. I hope it does well.
It doesn't even have 20 chapters yet...
Well I guess the first chapter is long so it'll have less than 10 chapters each. But still it'd be almost all we're up to.
Though that'll be cool, maybe I'll buy them.
They did this with SQs horror series 'shiki' so it's a good sign giving a double release to another series (Shiki sold relatively well with the release too)
I think they were gonna do this with Arts and then when Toriko came out they just said screw it and canceled it. XD
