Pheww. Lucky the first spoiler was fake. Coco should still be alive. By the way, is it me, or is the big hole where Coco and Grinpatch fought, is still gonna play an important role in all of this. Well, let's see.
To the real spoiler:
Hmm, that was merely a standard attack by Jirou. Nowhere near full power. Maybe that was like a Kugi Punch for Toriko. Remember, Jirou used Knocking on himself when he was in Gourmet World to protect Toriko and he scared the Tiger and Gorilla away. He isn't even in that giant mode yet.
Nevertheless Joa's attack was quite impressive. He stopped a tsunami ten times the size or bigger than the waterfall Sani and Toriko faced back then. I wonder what would Jirou have done if Joa didn't jumped up and cut those waves. Maybe screamed at the tsunami and stopped the waves from breaking? Now that would have been impressive. Anyway.
To Starjun. I don't like it. This dark technique is too convenient. Half of his torso should be gone. He should be walking around with a friggin' hole in his body. Now he is posing around like it's nothing, while carrying Komatsu. And even smirked at Joa. I wonder what he says to him. Hope there won't be a fight between Joa and Starjun. Give Star a rest already.
We can't expect epicness of Jirou every chapter but I hope we can see more of him in the next.
Oh, the long haired character looks like the Frohze silhouette we've seen before, when they referred to Frohze. Waiting for the translation.
I didn't want Komatsu to be captured at all. But now he might be captured by Joa/Frohze? I'm completely against that. I almost want to say it can't happen. If Joa, who is clearly about the strongest character that we've seen in action, manages to take him away, who is gonna go get him? I'll comment more after the translation but I'm interested in seeing how the author plays this out.
Now that i think about it did they ever say how Star got his scar? I wonder if Joa responsible for it maybe not though.

How come I was thinking the twist is that Star's with Neo . Anyone else??
Joa: Please hand over Komatasu
Starjun: As a top chef within Bishokukai, I cannot hand over such an important chef to you. I already know that Bishokukai have spies working for you since the ''Jewel Meat'' arc.
Joa: Hand him over, NOW
Starjun:I will not hand him over
Starjun: Just kidding here you go!
On a serious note. Jirou did not ask who Joa is, but ask ''WHAT'' Joa is implying that he is not Human. Maybe an alien from Gourmet space, or Nitro King, another intelligent life form on earth, or maybe Joa was human, and turned inhuman somehow. Setsuno confirmed in this chapter that Fronhze-sama is Dead, and Joa cannot be Fronhze.
Also would like to add that ALL of Joa's Techniques that he mentioned in this chapter are ''God'' level cooking techniques. The one he used to cut to tidal wave is God's kitchen technique, and the one he used to deflect Jirou/Setsu combo attack is called Devil's smth cut..
For those of you who think Jirou punch is not full power.. it really doesn't matter because it is a COMBO attack with Setsu which will Multiply attack power by xx amount. Remember Toriko x Sunny combo attack. So from everything we see, we can deduce that Joa is more powerful than Jirou. (His comment on how Jirou is a drunkard, whether a member of Neo will be a match for him, and now deflecting his combo attack with relative ease). Would say JOA is currently the STRONGEST character we have seen in this manga so far.. Alive. ALSO ANOTHER Note - Jirou Sent Gourmet Cells Energy like the one Four HKS used to beat four beast
Also Jirou and Setsu are wondering if there are anyone who already have ate Acacia's full course menu already...
Also if even STARJUN knows of Neo spies within Bishokukai - i think there's 0 chance that Ichiryu has no idea Neo have spies in IGO.

I never once doubted that the president knew about the spies in his crew, like there was way too many for him not to know.
The fave of frohze with the tiny teeth/spikes around the mouth is really Nitro-ish, so that gets me seriously thinking about the whole Nitro king/champion/elder being Joa idea. It really fits into the amount of hype Nitro got so far - would be a shame if all the hype ended by "couldnt scratch Zebra, oneshotted by Joa".
Also Starjun is being hell of confident standing up among Joa and Jirou, who are expected to want to rescue Komatsu - smells like Bishokukai reinforcements ala Midora are on the way. Would be a good end to the chapter too - standoff between Joa, Jirou and Midora.
Yes Joa can potentially be a Top Nitro
Regarding this part - Toriko's inner beast have asked Toriko to bring him Acacia's full course so he can fully control it
Her "Gourmet Cells" showed themselves, looks like...
She's completely mastered the power of her cells...
she's eaten "Acacia-sama's" "Full Course".
On Jirou's technique - I think his wolf punch can really consume an entire planet...
Jirou: Go ahead 'n rise enough ta eat stars.
T/N: Shourou = Rising Wolf

Joa is still Joa, that's why I never called him Frohze. Setsu is right, Frohze did die and Joa does appear to be a wolf in sheep's clothing even though it's the most badass sheep in the world. I'm a bit bothered by the Star comment though. It always seemed like he was above everyone in terms of power, including probably Dores, but now that he's gone all out versus Toriko it kind tarnishes anything the bishokukai has to offer next time they appear. Toriko isn't going to go from Star to Midora, and it would be stupid for him to fight anyone else since Star is his destined fight as long as he lives.
Oh, and to the Joa hater(s), how can you NOT see how interesting Joa and Neo are at this point? He may be a able to challenge Jirou, but that's not the point here. Joa just took a double attack from the two of them and brushed it off without damage and he even avoided the worldwide knocking. Whatever Joa is, he deserves a hell of a lot of credit right now and Star had no idea what he's dealing with.
