I'd like a see a Matsu cooking arc. The only time he cooks is the celebration. He should use the cookbook and have Toriko find the ingredients and then work on completing the recipe. Break into the top 100, maybe get 7 stars.

So, looks like Toriko will improve his speed in the next arc(s), awesome!
Finally he meets Staajun, I wonder what his reaction will be.
Interesting...I think we will get to see a little of Terry in this arc. Speed is one of the Battle Wolf's strengths. Also, I wonder why the "bad guys" seem to be helping Toriko? I think its got to be more than them just fattening a pig to be slaughtered later.
Or maybe it's exactly what you say it is, assuming the Nitro has gourmet cells and Zebra would have ate it do you think he would become any stronger?
A good chance that he might yet Shimabukuro-sensei won't let this happen since it's unfit for the genre (while I put aside Zaelappolo eating his henchmen in Bleach) or simply not his style while info about it and Zebra going like "shoot I should have ate it it might have tasted better than it looked" and later someone decides that his meat dish is Toriko since he's full of gourmet cells.

Now I wonder what Staajun's fighting/cooking technique is. Sunny has his spatula, Toriko has his cutlery/eating utensils, and this is the second time we have seen Staajun heat up/burn something. Earlier in the series he cooked that butt bug with his hand, now he set flame to a candle. He also showed gravitational powers when he slammed his fist against the table at the Bishokukai meeting.
It's odd how Staajun's eyes seem black when he is wearing the mask, but now they are normal. I wonder what gave him that huge scar, for such a strong person like Staajun maybe the opponent was the head chef, or boss of the Bishokukai. It's also odd how Toriko compared to the normal citizens is considered by them huge, yet we have seen recently quite a few characters bigger than him, Staajun now included.
I wonder what ingredient Staajun is looking for, and what ingredient Toriko will go after, because as it is now they don't have an ingredient but rather are going to see Acacia's statue, which when there they will either have a training/power-up or the next ingredient will be revealed.
I didn't like the design of Starjyun.
I mean, it was necesary a bishie bad guy, but not Stajyun! He was a badass character with the mask. =S
Anyway, it seems that it is a boring chapter. Hope that next week starts the new arc.
Awesome chapter , though i didn't remember who Stajun was
I wonder why he let them alive ?
Why not kill them, when it will be a time that they will probably be a thread to them ?
So this arc that is about to start , will probably result in some awesome training
Toriko do your best
Excellent chapter! It makes up for the lack of villain. Starjyun - as well as Grinpach - turned out to be way stronger than expected. Did the GT Robo limited his power to such extent? That's crazy. I've always saw them as the Admirals of Toriko-verse, which didn't make much sense considering Toriko gave Tommy one hell of a fight (even thought Tommy was still slightly above him, but even so he needed to fight while restraining that ultimate bug of his). But Tommy won't disappoint, he might find some real crazy bugs somewhere in the Gourmet World. Anyhow, I guess Grinpach is even stronger than Stajyun, considering that Shigematsu said "I was hoping that "Staa" or "Tomi" guy would come, but...
But to think this guy would come..."
First this is my first time posting here cuz I started reading Toriko last week and reached the latest chapter yesterday. I must say this is an awesome manga an I can see why it id doing so well in Jump (TOC recently) and why they are pushing it to be part of the big 3 (bleach out), cuz it has a bright future.
On this chapter, It was cool seeing Starjyun real face and that even with Toriko's upgrade he is still way weaker than Starjyun.
I wonder where the gourmet temple is? Also I hope we get to see more of Terry and I'm sure she's gotten bigger and stronger.
I also think Komatsu is going to use that new dragon fang knife of his as an offensive weapon because of how sharp it is.
Great chapter! I like Starjyun character a lotmore now.... I wonder how much moresurprise this training saga of Toriko can give us....
Good chapter. I wonder if there will be some kind of ingredient somewhere near the temple. And I'm ready for Komatsu to get some kind of physical upgrade. I mean if I can see him cleanly take out a capture level 5 beast without him screaming, crying, and wetting his pants then I'll be good. I have a feeling it'll happen in this next arc.
