The cover is great.
In this cover Midora looks really like Sunny, but of course older and more muscular. Also his hair colour is different and he has scars, but still it shows that he is on dark side.
I agree about the beard. I though it would be black as well as Midora's hair.
Also, I don't know why Jirou is shown in his older body as, when he entered Gourmet World to save Toriko and was quite serious and wasn't drinking he had black hair.
Yes, I think you are right. As with knocking he might reactivate his Gourmet Cells and thus get at his current best to not only get younger, but also get bigger like he got at the moment he was saving Toriko to try to perform Ikkaku Knocking on two enormous beasts.
yeah agree ...
I think author's intentions is to make a distinction between these guy by the color of their hair.
We have Ichiryu (blonde) - Jirou (white) - Midora (black or dark purple). Midora also has red beard and Jirou can turn himself young with black hair. Quite interesting if you ask me.
Would be actually great to see them young. I hope we will see their flashbacks at some point that will permit us learn more about Acacia and them.
I have a question. This year Toriko's sales weren't even in the Top 10 despite it having an anime + high TOC rankings. Why do you think that's the case? I mean doesn't that almost always mean high volume sales?
I hope Toriko sells a lot with this volume because it seems out of place to not be in the Top 10 best selling series despite how popular it seems to be.
