Good eye, I missed this thread. Thanks for pointing it out.
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.
Everyone - please feel free to submit any images or suggest themes. I would gladly take them. Sometimes, Daniel and I will run out of what to showcase on the caption contest articles. We do it each week.
Thanks! Nice, I definitely use that image.
Didn't Rinka beat up some kid who had precog or something?
I remember Ayumu Oozora was defeated because he was thinking too much. This negatively affect Ayumu's reaction time. Rinka will counter Ayumu instead of attacking him first, generating tons of potential moves.
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:
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.
Seen episode 3. I didn't expect that twist at the end. I hope the show does more things than featuring couples or folks who were in love. Two guy friends or two lady friends.
I was surprised that the bowling game wasn't visceral pain like the darts in episode 1. I was expecting another painful episode.
More world building which is great. Got to know more classmates, more about the alien, and the government. Ep. 1 was rushed and didn't leave much for folks to go on.
Biggest highlight was seeing a female version of Shiroe. I didn't remember anything else about the episode since I was working on wiki moderation at night after getting home late.
Thanks for calling me.
You are supposed to post clean scans. I'll clean it for you. You have to do it yourself next time. Otherwise, we just remove it on sight.
Damn, I just spoiled myself on Akame ga Kill since I didn't read the manga after the anime changed the execution arc.
