I tried not to spoil the upcoming chapter, but I actually got to the spoiler thread.)
Though I still managed not to look through the pictures.)
Still, according to the spoilers the chapter is going to be damn awesome as most of the last ones.
Finally seeing Third Faction seems quite interesting. Now it's time for Shigematsu and Mansam to enter the battlefield and kick some shitty asses.
P.S. Setsuno's ability seems to be damn amasing. And we should also remember that she is a powerhouse in terms of just raw physical power as well due to her Gourtmet Cells. She will dominate Chiyo.
I'm not saying that Setsuno could not be stronger, but the fight will be a good one I'm sure. Neither side has yet used any special technique, Chiyo only took the offensive.
Toriko never disappoints; another epic chapter is awaiting us.
At long last we find out Kousairou is the 3rd faction member. Interesting nevertheless, and it's not one but three of the richest men in existence. This faction is looking much much more serious now, and they are able to acquire some exceptional combatants and chefs apparently. Wonder about Kousairou's motives, he doesn't look like a man who's interested in money only.
The last panel is that what I think it is? Bishokukai's secret weapon - NITRO! And there's more than one! Juda in shock, the tides are turning.
This chapter gave me idea to create a motivational poster, tell me what you think:
All I can say with the spoilers is poor Bleach and Naruto when One Piece is on a break Toriko just break their confidence ^^.. Setsuno should be the strongest in this cooking fest and Chiyo even on how she is on par with one of the 0th biotope Setsuno is still the combo of one of the three strongest and respected by the three so she should wipe Chiyo 100/100 in all fights... I think Setsuno will either fight the Nitro or Zaus given that he is one of the third faction and no to the one that say Jirou is one of the third faction or making a fourth faction because being neutral has perks for him
So the Nitros are the Bishokukai's trump card. This is really getting interesting. Based on Yuda's reaction, these newcomers could turn the tide of the battle.
War done right. One crazy thing right after another. God damn Nitro!! Wow completely forgot about them. These 2 look full of energy and ready to go. First time seeing Yuda not calm; which makes me think that the Nitro are stronger than the 4 beasts which is crazy cause Toriko and co. had a hard time beating it. As for Setsuno, I think she will beat Chiyo but theirs a high chance she might die.
Setsuno's kill face vs. Chiyo's...which is more frightening lol. And YES to Buggy's poster lol, we're looking forward to a fight between two incredibly old women.
And ever since the chapter when Ume suddenly had to leave, I had a feeling he and his boss were involved with the 3rd faction. #1 reason was because it makes sense that the trio of Komatsu, Ume, and Take would be sort of cool if it was divided among the three organizations to give them all a unique purpose. Plus, if Ume had been a member of the Bishokukai he would have known about Take being a part of it, and he had too much freedom to be a bishokukai chef. I wonder now what his future roll will be, and I do wonder what the goal of the 3rd faction really is. Their goal doesn't appear to be God, so are they really evil? They seem to know everything about the Bishokukai and their operations, which implies they have a spy among them as well so I wonder who it is and if that person is in the room.

With all the top fighters currently wrapped up fighting other opponents it looks very bleak for the good guys. The only one who is available currently to fight that could have any chance against Nitro is Shigematsu.
so, what do you think they mean when the third faction says "we should intervene" How high do you think their fighting power is? Do they have any resources beyond zaus and kousairo? I think livebearer defecting may have been a terrible loss to their side.
BTW, from the spoilers it looks like that antenna guy as well as the nitro in the black chef's hat were talking, that's certainly new.. aside from that, what do you think the relationship between them and the bishokukai is? So there are four nitro shown, plus one lye beast, and some other guy with feelers on his head, do you think just that number is enough to seriously turn the tide?

Do yall think that guy that scared the shit out of Teppei is part of 3rd faction? If so they got some serious power.
one major question is this 3rd faction, what is their goal? Ultimately it must be the total jeopardy of ingredients but, what are they gonna get out of this war with the Bishokukai winning?
Zebra HAS to fight one of those new people (?) that came. I think he's too weak to fight a Nitro so he would either fight that weird horn guy or the even weirder cage guy.
The battlefield is starting to even out more. This is great. I think this certainly have potential to be the best arc in Toriko ever for sure.
Just read it - I loved it.
I'm really curious to see what's happening next week and the unleashing of specificly that one black Nitro.
I'm really quite curious about the Nitro. If you look at http://www.mangapanda.com/toriko/222/2 you can definitly see quite a few Nitro, or Nitro-look-alike Creatures, which are getting totally wrecked by Setsuno a bit later: http://www.mangapanda.com/toriko/222/5 So, are those fellas Nitro as well, or just some "beasts" that have been created by the Bishokukai?
It's also the first time we see we see Nitros with wings, isn't it? And then directly most of them. I'm also interested in seeing that "lye-beast" or whatever that thing with the knobs on it's shoulders and the expressionless face is. It's not that one which we saw http://www.mangapanda.com/toriko/211/17 or http://www.mangapanda.com/toriko/171/12
Can't wait for next week.
