So it is indeed Joa after all... Seems the guy is the mastermind behind this, or at least the reponsible for reviving the Four Beast, glad it isn't the Bishokukai
Well, if it's really Joa, then it's going to be interesting.
So the next chapter will be deffinetly based on fighting and also maybe showing a reason behind Joa's plan. Also it will showcase both Joa's and Teppei's current power.
Though I believe it might be better to let Joa get away after some good fighting, then it might be a way to tie current Arc with a new, where Joa and the organisation behind him will face Toriko and other Heavenly Kings and possibly Teppei.
Ch. 207 raws (japanese)
Agree with everyone that appetite was awesome. Author did an excellent job misleading us into believing it was going to be an energy ball It was beautiful seeing sun shining on the Kings after tough and gruesome battle.
Teppei vs Mastermind - it's getting even more interesting. I'm not so certain it is Joa - don't think he would go anywhere without his chef hat lol. One thing to point is that Mastermind doesn't necessarily have to be stronger than Four Beast, just have some tricky ability that enables him to control him. So, if he was stronger no one would be able to beat him. If he was weaker Kings would able to beat him easily, but they are out of picture so Teppei steps in - very nicely done.

I hope that in the next chapter Teppei will show some new moves he learnt during the time we haven't seen him. Would be great to see some Saiseya moves and also improved knocking.
It's going to be interesting to see what Joa's abilities are and if he is actually a good fighter.
But to be fair, I think that translation is biased since I came to my conclusions before it was written, I don't think it's specifically revealed to be Joa so I'm not stating this as fact. It looks like the translator is assuming it to be Joa just like us, so despite how fitting it is I think we still have a week before it's fact.

Yes, it seems that no matter what we must wait a week more to suggest if it is really Joa.
Also I think that Joa's actual face might not be what we've seen, when he was introduced to us, especially since it was too obscure and because of his hat and costume.
Anyways, I hope we will be given some clues. Mostly I want to understand what will gain a person or a group that stands behind such an attack via Four Beast?
So, are they going to actually eat it?
Furthermore I notice that the ou shoku bansam still has some little ball of something next to it, perhaps they intend to spare the shijuu?
I'm still curious as to how they intend to distribute that much food out to so many people as well.
The chapter was quite good.
What was the most important for me in it was the art. It was really great! Especially the pages with Heavenly Kings' inner beasts sitting at the table and casually eating. I also like the explanation of attack and its name that truly fits it.
So, when Matsu cures them, they will proceed to eat Four Beast. It will be interesting how far they will evolve just by eating unprepared meat and then if they evolve second time after eating prepared one. The same way Toriko had with Buble Fruit.
And at the end of the chapter it seems that even though Teppei caught up with the mastermind, he is a bit tired and the mysterious guy praises him for catching up with him. So in the next chapter it seems we will finally know if it's Joa...
If you mean how will they distribute the antidote food... then well, it's IGO for you. And they have tons of these famous cooks' employees, so I don't think we should think too much into it.
Agreed. They guy who rules over the four beast has got to be on the same level as the people in the 0 biotope. Teppie was with the army guy not to long ago so he might be able to to do knocking on himself and back him up.

Good point, will be interesting to see how the mystery man fairs against Teppei, hope he doesn't just run away.
A mysterious figure. Not uncommon, but Toriko is a great manga so I hope the identety of this person is revealed next chapter.
Obviously this person is the real challenge.
I hope they share the 4 beast with everyone.
I'm curious at what they do now. The Four Kings Appetite Energy ate the Four Beast right? So does this mean that the Four Kings have already eaten the Beast, or do they eat the giant Pac Man that has eaten the Beast? Also, I'm wondering what that smaller ball-thing is that is floating next to the the Pac Moon.
By the way, where is it confirmed that the hooded guy is Joa?
It isn't confirmed. It seems that it was a translator's suggestion...
I really dobut they already eaten Four Beast. I believe the need to directly consume the meat in order to eat it and evolve. And more importantly we didn't see them evolve, so I doubt they could have already eaten it and it seems that they should evolve, cause it's their last training ingridient.
I doubt that Joa is at the same level as the guys from 0th Biotope. I don't think that if mysterious guy isn't Joa it changes anything. Otherwise he would be too much not only for Teppei. Only Mansam seems to be on the level of 0th Biotope.
