Manga/Toriko:

In honor of my 50lb pup
My first thought: What a waste of color pages. I understand that they are being used for advertizing the book releases and take a LOT longer to draw, but the only thing they added to the story was the color of the chief's skin/outfit. I was hoping for some thing a bit more drastic.

That said, I have to wonder what those "fruit rooms" are and have never even heard of that game. *looks it up* Huh. *also looks up the other version* Oh. That game. Well, I'm looking forward to how the rules are going to be twisted. Though I already expect the pictures are going to be of foods each side has "tasted" and knowledge of what the other side has eaten will be important. Giving the mysterious owner the advantage over the public "guests."

Yeah this is kinda interesting. I like the betting price.

Toriko's a real Shonen Jump gem. Out of the constant serials that have tried and failed, Toriko shows just how damn good it is. It's manly, it reminds me of when manga was at its best and it deserves more love.

Does anyone know why Toriko is on hiatus?

Probably scanlation issues. Apparently it's still running as normal on the Japanese magazine.

I did get a Jo Jo vibe at first last chapter. But this game seems different. I am very interested in how the game will turn out, and I really enjoy how it's involving all participants, and having all of them do their own challenges. And best of all, it STILL ties into a Food theme!

Remember, this guy is head of the Casino, and winner 214 times. I wouldn't put it past him to have some tricks up his sleeve, if not around the cards, maybe the food itself.

With Komatsu cooking it and Coco there to field any poisonous food he must have great tricks. I know he must be dangerous for rule of drama so I'm really curious as to what it is.

It could be food Komatsu shouldn't know how to cook, but then the food will tell him.

That was a bit more straightforward that I was expecting. A bit hasty too. Although at the same time I am wondering what Livebearer's trick is, or what that death card is.

They said it's cheating somehow. Maybe he has X-Ray vision or something silly.

So yeah he's gonna have to cheat like a boss to win isn't he?

3D Contacts? Creative. The really interesting thing will be seeing Komatsu prepare all the miss dishes.

[up]In general dude most threads including this one have a 5 post after the chapter comes out where people spoiler tag stuff about the chapter.

Yeah at least it told us how he was cheating.

I like the giant bear thing he has to kill, get Komatsu to cook, and then eat in 250 minutes I think. It's one minute per point right?

Not only that, to win by points it looks like they will have to prepare that poisonus potato nitro cherry and get the other "joker" boost. That is probably what they are talking about right now.

...Can anyone find an explaination of what the "joker" part means? I could not find it and I swear I read all the rules again.

Yeah I have no idea what the Joker means I couldn't find it either. Maybe it's some to denote a really high point card or a narcotic card.

Lets see... they talk about the joker cards allowing them to "trade" on page 15... Ah, there we go. Found it this time, on 164-5. Once they eat the panda and the cherry, it looks like they can "trade" two of their ingredients/food items for ones the Livebearer has eaten and take those points.

Hmm... I see three ways this could go:

  1. Trade some of their 10 point items for the "big win" 200 point ones
  2. Trade the super-dangerous items for those "big win" items (try to get him to give up...I just don't see him finishing the Pudding Mountain)
  3. Make it so that the only two cards remaining are the ones for the potato.

They could do both 1&2 by trading the cherry and I expect that 1 will be the result. Mostly because the Livebearer will probably see 3 coming and prevent it any way he can.

EDIT: by the way, the cherry idea is strait from the Xanth novels. That world has "cherry bombs, " exploding "pineaples, " and "new-clear* cherry bombs"

Deadly food is kinda of an old concept. Exploding food is too. I think there was some in Norse mythology.

I expect toriko to beat that thing is one, maybe two hits to show the fruits of his training. Komatsu has got a lot of work ahead of him
