Manga/Toriko:

Melk The Second was the first one unless you count Toriko. Which I don't since he didn't really seem to enter the harem until the cloud vegetable arc thing. Actually now that I think of it that was before Melk. So yeah Toriko was the first during that arc and then the rest of the Heavenly Kings minus Coco were quick to follow. Along with the Lifebearer and others.

Yup, anime is accelerating the harem.

This show is not good for people trying to avoid midnight snacking.

Well the anime is past the Surprise Apple chapter so Komtsu should have a large portion of his harem by now. Namely Zebra, Toriko, Sani, and Melk at least. I don't think that they have been to the casino and picked up the Livebearer yet though. If they have then he's in there too.

Just finished episode 22, and I do not remember this much LOVE for Komatsu during the BB Corn storyline.

Did catch up on the manga this week and lolol, I remember one of the Big Bads appearing to have a sorta crush on Komatsu. He was saying-thinking that there are great chefs outside of the top 100.

I also get the impression that Tina (in the anime) is quite protective of Komatsu. Right now, seems like the only main who isn't part Komatsu's harem is Sani's sister, whose name escapes me at the moment.

I feel confused. Komatsu is my favorite (when I started reading the manga over 2 years ago), but the anime is turning me off it a tad. Did not mind the harem development in the manga, but the anime seems to make it feel so sudden.

Yeah the bad guy who is currently partnered with Komatsu's classmate thinks highly of his chef skills.

Komatsu didn't come up at all during the BB Corn storyline in the manga.

Rin is Sani's sister and she is all over Toriko.

So padding reporter girl is part of his harem in the anime? I'm glad that the manga has never shown her.

Komatsu was never my favorite character, but for a while I was out right disliking him because of how much he was being wanked by everyone. That at least calmed down for a little bit but this arc has turned that back on hardcore.

Tina kept yelling Komatsu's name (out of concern) during the BB Corn arc. She also accompanied Komatsu (rather than Toriko). I would consider both "facts" innocent of shipping had not Coco been showing so much concern for Komatsu during the arc. (Plus, I seem to remember Sani showing interest in Komatsu again in the (anime) corn arc.)

Then, during my manga catch-up, Sani was definitely out to get Komatsu to form a combo with him. Then, the Big Bad (thinking) of Komatsu. (And yeah, the owner of that casino wants Komatsu too.)

Let's just say that I have to restrain myself from making jokes about everyone (except Rin) wanting to be part of Komatsu's harem.

From your post, I'm assuming that a considerable portion of the fandom is also tired of all the Komatsu love? If it is, I can't blame that portion. I -like- Komatsu, and even I think the anime is laying it too thick too soon.

Komatsu stayed at home during the BB corn storyline. It was just Toriko and Terry. Well later on the straw guy, but still no Komatsu at all.

[up]Well I'm not a considerable portion, but I would assume that at least some portion is. Another person I know who watches the series loves the Komatsu love because he finds it hilarious.

Yeah, it's definitely not a (typical) harem.

When I read the manga, I want to adopt Komatsu too.

The anime is just making me feel a little weird about it. Usually, I feel happy when a beloved character gets screen time (and love) in canon. But now, I feel more worried the (overwhelming) canon love for Komatsu is going to end up making fandom hate him.

Does Komatsu have any real faults? He's physically weak and unimpressive physically, but that's helped him out and it's been a long time since we've seen any negative side effects to those traits.

He used to be constantly scared and stuff, but he's even moved beyond that to a large extent.

Noooo, I don't want to think of Komatsu as a Stu.

On a related subject matter, thanks to the anime - Zonge is now a fav cause I feel so bad for him.

Don't forget Komatsu's food luck.

They have Zombie be a butt monkey more in the anime?

Yeah, I think so. I don't remember Zonge and co. being chased around by lizard during the BB Corn Arc.

Also, he's in episode 23 - the arc where they meet the Granny for the Century Soup arc.

T_T The shoe-horning of Tina is starting to get to me, namely cause I already know the fandom doesn't like her for starring more in the anime.

Komatsu is A-Okay in episode 23. He's really easy to like. Which is probably why I didn't mind the harem in the manga. It's just the anime is doubling the Komatsu love when other characters could use more screentime.

I don't know.

The Four Beast Arc is the first time Zombie has shown up since the Surprise Apple Chapter and that was the second time he showed up in total with the first being in the Ice Hell Arc.

He get's shilled a lot more in the Anime then in manga.

He is basically Hercule, but at least slightly more powerful (Due to Gourmet Cells).

Awww look at Komatsu running off to give his harem the taste of his purple balls.

In honor of my 50lb pup
I'm sure the harem will really pack them in.

I thought so.

I bet Once The four kings eat The Four Beast, they'll have to confront it's controller who will probably Worf Teppei in the next chapter.
