As for Matsu he will most likely work on preparing the bubble fruit it would be similar to the Century soup arc, in a sense where the cooking of the bubble fruit would lead them into the next arc and finding the next ingredient.
Would be really interesting to see him getting better in terms of sensing and predicting danger, but it seems that Food Honour has already increased all of his current abilities and predicting was one of those and it seems that he used it to some degree against Chiyo. We should also remember that he can still increase his Food Honour by training it and eating prepared Bubble Fruit.
Still I believe you might be right on this guess.
I believe he might also try to increase his basic speed. As I believe that even after learning Food Honour and Spoon he still lacks in this department.
As for Komatsu, I also think he's most likely at the border between Specially Prepared Ingredients, and Super Specially Prepared Ingredients. Right now he'll probably feel insecure because of Ootake, and is wondering how to stronger, and the Heavenly Kings will have to cheer him up.
I don't think the next arc will be about the last ingredient, and if I had to guess, it'll probably be either about Komatsu and his growth, or about the mysterious taste data that Toriko got from Livebearer. After that, we'll probably have the last ingredient, then the cooking competition mentioned in the Gourmet Santa chapter, and finally the Capture Level 100 beast, before heading to the Gourmet World.
Cool chapter. Hopefully we see more of these 0th Biotope badasses next chapter.
Yeah, I'm looking forward to that and the war. The Gourmet World is getting hyped up even more this chapter -- which I enjoyed.
How far away do you guys think the war is? Chapter wise of course.
I believe the War won't be earlier than 100 chapters from this point as Toriko before entering GW needs to fullfill some conditions (getting one more ingridient, bitting 100 level monster), Komatsu also going to Cooking Festival and so on, so I believe we'll have several more Arcs in Human World and only then we'll go to GW and even there we'll have an Arc or two before reaching 0th Biotope and I also don't believe that the War is meant to start quickly as Ichiryu pointed during the last meeting with Miudora that it might even be a year or even several years, before the War breaks out.
Hopefully next couple arcs focusses on the other heveanly kings.
With the recent break in most of the other manga in jump i think after this week's chapter it'll be toriko's turn to take a break >_<
