@SonNeko: Lol its more freaking that he didn't even react by falling from space

@taichokage: how did all the monkeys make it to the top? I thought only those who fully master enbu can reach there. I mean didn't the other monkeys return back because they couldn't bare the gravity?

@taichokage: Does the Hulk sleep in space all the time?

@SonNeko: Lol. No he doesn't.

@flashback180: Enbu wards off the effects of gravity. But I was under a similar impression. I though the Newcomers couldn't make it but the rest could. I'll have to re-read that bit.

@taichokage: It's funny to see how powerful the jump Enbu has given the Kings. Just a few chapters ago, they couldn't even blink in his presence. Now, the Kings are able to play a few games with him. Enbu's gonna be useful throughout the series I feel. They're probably going to be able to learn how to make it a natural reaction so they don't even have to think about it, it's just a subconscious power.

I'm also sensing a pattern from this chapter after Bambina went around with them: Zebra will continue to be the most durable, Toriko will be physically the strongest, Sunny will be the fastest and Coco will be... the smart one who's not quite as strong as the others lol

@Jinbeifan1: RPS is a game invented by gods, this is a no-brainer.

When I saw all those planets in space,I realized that by the end of the series,these guys might possibly be galaxy level or solar system level,but definately above multiplanet level just my opinion though,its already evident that they will leave earth at some point and something tells me that God is not on earth and apart from acacias full course that there are other menus that are higher than it I also believe that the blue nitros are not from earth but I guess most people already figured that out. People should not be suprised at this point that bambina can easily jump to space,get a good night rest there and then fall back down to earth to resume his daily activities,if he can pull off something like this casually without putting any form of effort then what will be other kings be like. As for the part about the monkeys coming to 100g mountain,there are 2 things involved (1) either we say that they are arranged in the order of who has greater enbu level and the ones in front have mastered it enough to get to the top and it goes down that way till u reach the bottom since 1 billion monkeys will not be able to fit into the mountain or (2) shimabukuro made a very big mistake either way this chapter was awsome btw the kings are BA,they were able to play with bambina from just 3 days of enbu training I wonder how it would be like when they fully get used to it to the point where it would be as easy as breathing.

Gosh, off topic but it just hurts to compare the level of art between the anime and the manga...

When anime is sloppier than the manga, that means either A. The art is phenomenal or B. The studio does not put forth much effort. In this case, more the latter albeit Toriko's art quality increased notably over the last couple years.

@Jinbeifan1:

You are not off-topic. The Manga and Toriko Discussion (Anime) are intertwined. The anime was made so anime only fans can discuss without seeing spoilers from the manga which is usually ahead of the anime.

I agree the manga is better than the anime. It's because of the reasons:

  • Manga is usually more easier and cheaper to produce compared to anime. I don't think Toei Animation took a break with Toriko. They were putting episode after episode.
  • I heard folks wanted another studio, like MadHouse, to produce it.
  • I believe the anime's popularity and sales wane compared to Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, and others.

Maybe some of you might correct me. Wasn't the anime catching up to the manga back in 2014? I don't think Toriko had a lot of fillers.

@takashichea: Lol when I said off topic, I meant as compared to how everyone is talking about Bambina and stuff XD

as for the reasons, yeah. All those make sense. I REALLY hope another studio takes on Toriko. It would be a horrible shame for its anime run to end on such a crappy note as the one that Toei left it on. Madhouse did such an incredible job on the OVA that I'm hoping they do pick it up. As for fillers, it didn't. But even so, they were far too lazy with the art, and they didn't get into the graphic detail that Shimabukuro did.

Someone like whoever did Bleach or Naruto should do Toriko. Both have great animators, no doubt. If that's still Toei, you could have fooled me. They even get lazy with One Piece, although I suppose One Piece is the craziest of the bunch :P

@taichokage: True that, and like I said a long time ago, the reason I was so reluctant to get into Toriko was not only the concept, but how the art looked. Shima really stepped up his game over the years. Even though it hasn't been out long lol

Zebra. I really wanna see him with a major role against Bambina.

One Piece is the biggest cash cow in Toei, and I believe Toei had done more for One Piece than Toriko from a business perspective. That's my guess. Rather than continuing to produce Toriko episodes, they focus on popular shows, One Piece and Sailor Moon.

I feel Toriko has more a niche audience compared to other Shonen series who can broadly appeal to more people, casual, hardcore fans.

It's a bit upsetting for folks who want to see the rest of the manga animated. All we can do is hope, petition, send mails, or Twitter response to the author and the company.

@Jinbeifan1: @SonNeko: Lol. This last chapter despite being impressive still made Coco look weak comparably speaking. He was the only one knocked over. Zebra took the hit, and Sunny managed to actually get to Bambina before he could get to Sunny. Very impressive speed and reaction feats.

@takashichea: Yeah. It was doomed as an anime from the get go in my opinion. Toriko is a Shounen surrounding a group of young-middle aged adults. There are no relevant children or teens in the story. And it's more graphic than any other series I read in Jump. It's already setting itself up to appeal to less young children. But then Toriko was put into an 8 and up time slot if I recall correctly which completely ruined the mature vibes that the manga has which is essential for it. Then it got Toei. It was very unfair since HXH was given an older time slot and Madhouse Studio, despite HXH having an anime in the past. They gave HXH the better options anyway and Togashi still won't stay off his hiatus. It was a slap in the face to all HXH fans and one could even say Toriko fans since they came out at nearly the same time and ran for the same length, HxH at 148 episodes and Toriko at 147 episodes + 1 OVA.

@SonNeko: Both are problem children for their respective groups. It's practically begging for a battle between them XD How that will turn out in the end is still... up for grabs lol

@takashichea: Do you know if that OVA was made before the actual anime run from Toei or after? I'm trying to use it to determine whether there's hope that Madhouse will take over for it XD

@taichokage:

I agree with you. It was a confusion in the branding of Toriko when marketing it for the anime. It is a quite a contrast from the manga series. The anime series began as a crossover with One Piece, and it has been piggy backing on One Piece in order to introduce the series. One Piece is way more flexible with its audience and can appeal to younger and older audience than Toriko. I remember the Ending song for Toriko was educating children to eat healthy.

@Jinbeifan1:

The OVA, Toriko Jump Super Anime Tour Special 2009, (I need to add to the wiki) was produced by Ufotable. I think you were talking about that one. Yes, that OVA came before the anime series (2011).
