Super excited about the next chapter. Komatsu's likely to get some action. Toriko is in line for a big power boost. And the old folks look set to battle it out. Although to be honest I'd like to see Chiyo take on Setsuna with that sort of attitude.
The chapter was great! The art was clearly impresive. I liked the last page with Toriko loosing conciousness and tons of Bubble Fruits appearing around him.
The thing that is interesting about this Arc is actually that before it was difficult for Toriko to use some of his strongest attacks consecutive... now he can use his powers better and also got stronger with his Food Honour training. After getting Food Immerssion he can become way stronger by gaining hundreds of kilos. If Chin weights ton and Toriko around 230 kilos... well he needs to get to at least 500 kilos. At that point he might take tons of strong oponents in Gourmet World and I would say he might take several strong Bishokukai members at the same time.
The interesting thing is what happened to Otake as it seems that he was given some power boost. Maybe he was given Gourmet Cells?
Whoa. Chiyo is a real beast, threatening the disappearing temple into showing itself again.
And damn, Toriko has probably never been this starved in his life. A bet he will appreciate this Bubble Fruit like no meal before and evolve his gourmet cells.
I wonder if there is going to be a fight. If there is, I guess it will be Toriko vs. that Blanka looking dude, Chinchin vs. Chiyo, and Komatsu vs. Otake. Seems kind of unlikely that Komatsu will engage in combat, especially with his old friend, but I would like to see that he can handle himself physically since they will be going to the Gourmet World soon. He can't have Toriko protecting him every step of the way. Maybe he can do even more devastating damage with his Melk knife now that he has had training.
I am somewhat divided, I think it would be great for Komatsu to fight but, so far we haven't seen any fighting ability in him. Food honor has for sure greatly gave him a boost but the question is, that was it for his cooking skills or also his fighting. Even though, it would be great for him to win against his friend at this point after all the training. I feel it will be a pushover if the win was completely one sided. I am hoping for a fair fight where both of them go till the edge of their ability.
As Toriko, him gaining new ability to use spoon will be awesome, but what I really want to see is the his new speed. because frankly after seeing some of the other experienced fighters like the old man9and I know the difference in level is like night and day) I still think he is too slow.

That was a pretty good chapter! that old lady chiyo is really creepy maybe she will fight with setsuno in the war?? also i want to know what kind of abilities ootake learn maybe variations of toriko attacks? thus has the same hairstyle? , after this training toriko will not need to use more autophagy!! men i have a lot of questions ,but just can wait.
also im triying to relate the list with the trainig stages i mean
Ozone herb : learn to adapt low oxygen environments
Melk stardust : gravity
Mellow cola: heat environments
Shining gourami: strength - i dont know just a test for chinchinchin?
Meteor garlic: tactics? and poison ingredients
Bubble fruit: learn food honor and how to organize his metabolism? i know sure about this
Unknown ingredient: speed ?
I thought it was 2 ingredients left still?
another thing he really needs to learn according to jiro is to be constantly on guard, never letting his guard down, as apparently tori tends to go into "eating mode" or "casual mode" instead of keeping up his fighting mentality, and is far more vulnerable during these times, but can be attacked at any time in the gourmet world. Another thing is he needs to dramatically increase the range that his distance attacks can cover, a nice midair battle would be great, if he had some way of maneuvering in midair perhaps.
I think his range has increased considerably after he underwent Food Honour training as it increased all of his techs (power, range and speed).
The thing that is really interesting in perspective - will he go to the Gourmet World after this Arc or will he aim for other ingridients to conquer Human World.
As LoS said their might be more ingridients on Toriko"s list, I had the same fealing, but I'm not sure about it.
Hope we'll see some great fighting in the upcoming chapter.
I can't even imagine how strong Toriko was after the previous Arc as it seems that his cells evolved twice, now he got way stronger after learning Food Honour, now he learns Food Immertion, then he will also learn Spoon and eat Bubble Fruit that should evolve his cells even more + he also got Autophagy after which he always gets better power-up. If he gets other ingridients in Human World his cells will evolve even beyond my expectations, so I can't even imagine how strong Toriko might have gotten. He might ven try to fight Sani and Coco at the same time. Or fight Tommyrod and Greenpatch.
Now I don't think so. Seriously only Food Honour gave Toriko more progress than half of the ingridients he've eaten in the last Arcs and when you think about all those ingridients and ingridient combos he've eaten during last 4-5 Arcs... not even talking about Food Immertion and Bubble Fruit.
P.S. You should also consider that most of relatively strong people had less stamina than Toriko even before he've eaten Meteor Garlic and that should have considerably increase his stamina and the level of calories he can maintain to use for his attacks.
P.P.S. Of course other characters also increased their capabilities, but not as much as Toriko, especially after this Arc.
This page and this are rly deep. Its easy to write a essay on that, simply because its beautiful. I like how the original tension comes back to Toriko. Even though I enjoyed the one shot chapters and the training arc, I always missed the tension. Its seems the manga is going to deliver it for me. Finally and Thank You.
Take and the beast look like Toriko and his beast form/will or whatever it is called. It was rly confusing, as they made their appearance last week.
