TORIKO is initially set to broadcast every Monday at 10:00am Pacific Time. Starting on November 18, episode 130 will be made available for both premium and free members. Previous episodes will be available on Crunchyroll at a later date. More information can be found on www.crunchyroll.com/toriko.
TORIKO, written and illustrated by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro, is hailed as one of the most popular shonen titles next to giants like One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter by fans and critics alike. Back in 2012, it was the 11th best-selling manga series in Japan with over 3 million copies sold, and continued to exceed that as early as May 2013 with over 10 million copies sold.
“In a world where the taste and texture of food is extremely important, individuals known as Bishoku-ya, specialize in the acquisition of rare ingredients and animals. Our protagonist, Toriko, possesses incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom in order to fulfill his dream to capture the most precious foods in the world and create the ultimate dinner course. He is currently accompanied by a weak and timid chef who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and find rare ingredients.”
Hello everyone, I'm Taka, your neighborhood wiki editor.
This morning, I posted the One Piece Discussion (Manga), and as I was browsing the One Piece wiki to make a theme for wiki tasks, I notice the franchise has a wealth of location pages. I decided to go with the One Piece World Tour Bounty Project!
I was wondering how can wiki editors, new and old, help out fill out these location pages. On the Anime Vice Wiki Style Guide, the location just needs an overview as an H2 header. Ambiguity leads to stronger and flexible guide. I decided to post some basic outline for the One Piece location pages
Thank you. If you need help, please drop a comment or ask the mods or the veteran wiki editors in our community. I will be happy to assist you.
Okay, guys and gals, this is a sad attempt by me for the Bleach Discussion (Manga)'s hot topics. I haven't read or watch Bleach after the end of the Fake Karakura Town arc.
Feel free to lay down your thoughts since this topic was a bit controversial. I don't blame you, and I'm not doing the anti-feminist thing. I had this weird pattern about Bleach that popped out in my head around 3AM, and I had the urge to post it.
Beware of spoilers!
I was recalling the fun days of watching Bleach back in Adult Swim before it turned a bit stale. I thought about the story arcs in Bleach. Two of them have this trope.
Note: I haven't read or seen Fullbring arc or the rest of the fillers after the Bount arc. I might missed some stuff.
Rukia is one of my favorite gals in Bleach. She's tough as nails and has a wicked Zanpakuto, Sode no Shirayuki, that freezes her target. She saved Ichigo's ass plenty of times. I can't help wonder about the whole goal of the Soul Society arc, rescuing Rukia before she was executed. In my mind, I was yelling "come on, Rukia. Bust out of jail and rebel against your bro." It feels weird that Rukia isn't fighting back.
Lastly, enjoy this video of Ichigo's reunion with Rukia. Notice how he treats Rukia. Guys, that's power of love right there.
After Soul Society arc, Ichigo and the gang encounter a group of new enemies called Arrancars, your hybrid versions of Hollows and Shinigami in a sense. Guess what happens, Orihime gets kidnapped. It's up to Ichigo and his gang to rescue her. Loved how Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez and Ulquiorra interacted with Orihime. Compared to Rukia, Orihime is a healer who provides support for her teammates. She is no warrior like Rukia when she didn't put up any resistance to Aizen's group.
Nel teaching Ichigo how to treat ladies as equals
In the end, both gals give up until Ichigo arrive and show them a glimmer of hope (to fans who ship them, too.) I don't have a full knowledge of the series, but it seems that Kubo likes to add some romantic damsel in distress in these major story arcs.
I have to cut this short. Sorry, I got to hit the hay for Veteran's Day celebration for the Church.
Don't take this blog seriously. I'm just kidding with you guys and gals. (my sarcasm is bad)
In the blink of the mind's eye, Ryuta Sakamoto suddenly finds himself transported from playing the hit BTOOOM! video game to being stranded on a mysterious island. He's equipped with a day's worth of provisions, a bag of bombs, a strange crystal embedded in his left hand, and a huge gaping hole in his memory. But it doesn't take long to figure out what's going on, especially after the first person Ryuta meets tries to kill him. Someone is attempting to recreate the ultra-violent BTOOOM! game in real life, and the island has been filled with an army of other unwilling players, each armed with one of the multiple variants of explosive weapons called BIM.
Fortunately, Ryuta's an ace BTOOOM! player, but this insane version of the game has no reset switch or second lives, and there's only one way off the island: kill seven other people before they can kill you! Can Ryuta repurpose his game-based skills fast enough to survive this ultimate battle royale?
