It seems that we are bound to have not only a great chapter this week, but also the next one. So Acacia, his Disciples and Frohze were attacked by Nitro. That's interesting to see what's going to happen next. I doubt that anyone of them can die in such a situation, especially since we know how damn strong Ichiryu and Jirou are. And it seems that both Acacia and Frohze were stronger than either of them. And well Acacia should be considerably stronger.
When all the fights between IGO and Bishokukai were set I didn't expect such a profound flashback, but now I'm really impressed, because it seems that we will get to know tons of things about Acacia, Frohze, Midora, Ichiryu, Jirou and the mystery of Nitro.
In the end, Acacia looks noticably older, though I'm not sure exactly how much time passed. Frohze, however, looks exactly the same...despite all of them having clearly grown. And I also really want to know what he was saying in the end near the page with the beast holding what looks like a Shoku Bansan.
10 years have passed. I'll look through the Chinese scan and see what I can get from the last page real quick
Ichi: Acacia-sensei, who's already eaten all the world's ingredients... even now you still want to collect ingredients....
Acacia: It's my... "Full Course"!!
Ichi, Jirou, Midora: Acacia-sensei's.... "Full Course"???
Ichi: Even us three brothers....
Jirou: I also had no idea....
Midora: Acacia's.... full course...
Acacia: You should all prepare well. Think now, it won't be long before the "solar eclipse"... I fear within almost one month's time there won't be enough sunlight. As the time for war approaches a short cease-fire should be possible, but compared to now the ingredients will become increasingly scarce...
Acacia: ...therefore you must start and take advantage right now and collect as many ingredients as you can, otherwise all the living people in the world could die of starvation.
Frohze: That day has finally arrived...
Acacia: You've already accomplished "shi-mo" (food something), Frohze...
Midora: "Solar... Solar eclipse..." Then, Acacia-sensei, looking at "the story of myth" that you told us when we were little, the "Four Beast" actually emerges in Human World. "Solar Eclipse" is the same...
There really could be a demon... emerging in the universe that could in one mouthful devour the sun? (this is the last panel on page 17, I have no idea what Midora's talking about tbh. Might be Ou shoku bansan that he's talking about, but he doesn't call it that. Everyone keeps talking about the sun and sunlight.)
Acacia: Midora... that's just a legend...
Midora: Rea- really?
Ichi + Jirou (responding to the noise outside): How??
Ichi: This killing intent is....
Frohze: Pair has already arrived....
Acacia: You all, don't be rash... I'm sure....
Acacia: Outside those are.... "Blue Nitro" (phonetically the characters say lan-se-ni-te-lou)... none of you could defeat them..!!! Unexpectedly, they've turned out in full force!
Bottom text: "The pursuers of 'God'... unexpectedly are 'Blue Nitro'....!!?"

Except Frohze and Acacia....I think the Orphan Trio were still noobs at the time......strong, but were not at their level in the present.
I'm intrigued by what Acacia said about Pair, according to mr danly, Acacia said " Pair has already arrived... "
Now that's one helluva mysterious ingredient
The Nitro that Toriko encountered in the sky was likely a blue version...which perhaps does not simply imply power but also vast intelligence. And I suppose these blue versions are superior to even the four beast...though I guess that's obvious. All of this is taking place before God though...so nobody should die here though this event may end up somehow having something to do with Midora's upcoming change. It gets more sad every chapter, they seem like such good friends and such a great family so maybe the even more likely outcome is tension that arrives after both Acacia and Frohze are gone and the decision on how to pass on Acacia's legacy becomes the new problem. We've yet to see Midora and Ichiryuu interact at all lol, so I still don't get how this will play out.
Blue Nitro huh? Going by the silhouettes on the last page these nitro are looking to be pretty different from the Red Nitro at the cooking fest. Wonder if theres anything else that seperates them besides color...
I don´t think they are literally blue and red. One of the Red Nitro that were on the cooking festival was green.
Yeah, it's definitely a category. If it wasn't for the fact that their name Nitro implies neverending ferocity, I would have thought that maybe the red implied more of a berserker type of beast, while the blue implied a type that is a bit more calm and calculating. Still might be true though, even if the blue ones are just as relentless.
Would imagine the three disciples now are roughly at 4HK's age and strength.
Toriko's flash back unlike the many of the other manga's actually have solid impact on the storyline and it's entertaining to read.
Didn't Ichiryuu defeat the four beast, alone, at a time when it wasn't starved from having been stopped previously? I'd say they are somewhat above the kings at that time, or at least Ichiryuu and Jirou were.
And when Midora mentioned the demon king who will bite the sun...I suppose that is what will cause the eclipse. Could God actually be either a being or disaster that acts a great equalizer to humble all life on earth? Why else would ingredients become scarce, especially considering the famine already upon them. This is getting too awesome to be a flashback...

1) Red nitro are these.
The ones that attacked Joa. The green ones are the ones revived by Joa.
2) the disciples who easily owned the 4 beasts are probably above and beyond the powersl of the HK who needed to work together as 4 with a special powerful move on the 4 beasts.
3) THIS FLASHBACK!! None of them can beat a Blue Nitro and they are already the top of human power, wtfuqqqq
The Blue Nitro strengthens my theory that the Nitros are ranked based on the colors of the rainbow.
Red being the lowest. Followed by orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet as the highest.
If Zebra defeated green Nitros, it means he's already at the level of Ichi (maybe a bit lower or higher) when the four beast first arrived.
Joa specifically called those Nitro "RED" nitro...and the one was green before and likely after being revived. I don't get where you guys are getting the other colors from, when at this point only two colors have been revealed based on class and not physical appearance. If blue Nitro were nearly Acacia tier, do you really expect an even stronger class? It was even stated that blue Nitro are the key to God...
EDIT: Just realized Joa called the ones from outside the stadium Red Nitro, not the ones from Zebra, but what reason do we have to think of them as something different? There was no hint of those 2 being weaker, and no proof of the skin color of any of the other Nitro except for the one that beat down Yuda.
