Yes. New opening seems totally logical, cause we already have 40 episodes with the same one, while there are 3 endings already if I'm not mistaken.
I'm really waiting for the upcoming Arcs being animated, cause they are going to be badass for sure.

Toriko Episode 42:
So it seems that we are going to have several filler episodes for now. Don't know if it's bad or good. For now it seems at least ok if we are talking about the quality and the plot. I would give something around 7 out of 10 to this episode.
Anyway I think it's the best way to prolongue anime - to put from one to three filler episodes between Arcs if posible to not let the anime catch to the manga quickly.
It Sky Garden Arc is quite a good Arc in the anime, even though it's very short. Still I really like to see this type of enviroment and it's just as I imagined.
Also it was great to see how Toriko's Cells evolved and also it was great to finally see Nitro.
Yeah, I'm loving this arc in the anime.
Maybe because it hasn't the childish and ultra-comercial tone that it had before. Did you realise that we haven't seen the hated Gourmet Spicer for a while? lol
Also Tina was kicked out of this arc. It's being pretty faithfull to the manga.
Totally agree with you. Even though I normally can bare with small filler parts, but Tina was really too much of a change, even though it was more for comic relief. Hope we won't see her that much soon.
I agree about Gourmet Spicer. It was too much of it in the anime.
So it seems like we are going to have 1-2 more episodes and this Arc will be over and we'll get to Melk Stardust Arc.
By the way, today's Toriko episode didn't come out.
Seems like Fuji TV broadcasted a special program because it has been an year since the earthquake.
Let's see, but it might be just a bit delayed. I normally get Toriko episodes somewhere around Tuesday or Wednesday, so maybe we'll have it a bit later.
I already said above that episode 48 will air on 18.03.2012. 1 week pause for Toriko and One Piece.
What the hell? Dont tell me episode 48 is going to be delayed this week too!
No, 48th aired today. Next week is about Gourmet World.
The last episode was quite good.
I liked how Nitro was shown. He really got the vibe. And i really liked the colour of his hair. Never thought of it being red. Maybe not all of them had it, but still...
Also Ichiryu is as badass and funny as always. Some filler parts were good too, even though there was too much of Rin thinking and asking about Toriko's whereabouts.
Looking forward to the next episode.
So they decided to spoil Zebra in a collab filler... Are they nuts or something?
They probably wanted to attract some One Piece fans who don't watch Toriko.
The special was far better than the first. And if the first was successful as Toei says, so this one should be too. So maybe next April, there will be Toriko x One Piece 3 and I don't mind to become an early special event too. But I hope the next time it will be more in One Piece's world and to be more fighting oriented (like vs pirates) than food gathering.
Sometimes I wonder if Toei cares about toriko and about staying true to the manga or even really respect it at all.
I mean, no new opening after so many episodes, spoiling zebra like that, toning it down so much...
It seems like "Toriko is just a spare cash-cow for us" or a total cashcow in this case..
