Toriko is not only supposedly getting two covers in a row, but already has a place on the Jump website when Reborn or Psyren don't have one yet. Jump really seems to be putting a lot into the newcomers this time around. This is a good thing in my opinion. I wanna read Toriko. Anybody interested in scanlating it?
Well reborn is on that site and I think the webbie has mistaken kuzumi of mx0 for ageha of psyren
I like it so far.
If that's the case .... then I'm guessing the editors will take care of this manga no matter what...
sigh, let's hope is not crapola.
I think the editors are going to take care of the new series for a while unless they really start sucking. It's a shame Usagi and Sket are getting shafted now.
I'll check this out sometime, but a manga about cuisine, and meat?? It's a comedy manga right??
It's not really a comedy manga. There's funny parts. Surprisingly, it's more of an action manga. Toriko basically fights and defeats large beasts to be sold as food. It's very interesting. I like it a lot so far. I look forward for the upcoming search for the rainbow fruit. What's not to love about a buff man fighting six armed gorillas? =P
Is there anywhere I can read this? I've been out of the Jump loop for a few weeks (since this and Togashi began, essentially) and while One Manga has Togashi it doesn't have Toriko; and in the scanlation forum Chapter 6 is posted but none others. Can anyone give me a pointer?
Edit: scratch that, I'm good.
Second edit: based on the first two chapters, this series is fantastic! Hilarious, original, and utterly charming. It reminds me, of course, of Luffy's appetite, but a whole manga based on this concept is like a dream come true. Can't wait to read the next four - will of course report back when I do...

I personally like this manga a lot. I wish it had a more dedicated scanlator. I messaged onemanga about it but got no response.
I caught up to chapter 9 yesterday and man, this manga is superb. Funny, clever, charming, with really attractive character and monster designs and especially backgrounds, plus an excellent premise... if it keeps on going like this there's no way it can go wrong. In fact, I think it can only get better.
I like it because it's a fun simple plot. "Super strong guy fights monsters to eat them." And it's well written so it works perfectly.
Well since I am up-to-date with some other mangas, I might give a shot to this one. I really wanna know how it works, what's it about...
Does anyone know where I can find scans? a batch?
