Probably because there's not much to talk about, even if you like it. It's the potato chips of manga.

Huh, that picture really does make it look really generic. It's something about the colors, or maybe it's that it lacks the rough look of the manga? Maybe it's just the general cleanness? It'd probably look better as an 80's style anime like FotNS.


Yup, pretty much.


This too.

It may be generic but its better than one piece.

Why are you randomly talking smack about OP in multiple threads that have nothing to do with it? Thats wierd.
>> No. 74602
Yeah, but I don't think it's limited to One Piece. I've seen a couple of posts over the last couple of days that were basically just unprovoked attacks on various things that he thinks people like or that he thinks people will jump to defend, like someone trying way too hard to provoke a reaction. He's chosen One Piece now probably because we've got a One Piece board, or because he saw that some of us are prone to gushing when comparing One Piece to other Shonen Jump series.

He's probably just a troll got banned from 4chan and hasn't learned to adapt his tactics from trolling /a/ to trolling /jam/ yet. Protip: Go after Baccano! instead.

>> No. 74610

And the fact it was posted after an obviously belligerent attack against One Piece in another thread (lol oneshit amirite guise. It's like I'm really on /a/ again) has nothing to do with it.

Also that "Someone" who said it'd better than Bleach is SneakyTiki. We tend to just ignore let him do his own thing anyway.

That's not very nice and besides, Shonen Jump agrees with me, but hey, don't take my word for it, you tell me who are the three most prominent figures on the average Jump cover are now or where it stacks in popularity.

HMMMMM? Why it seems Ichigo has manned the fuck up and dyed his hair blue!

oh, wait, that's Toriko!

And I didn't compare it to One Piece because they are brother series to the point of having literally crossed over with each other both in manga an anime, so it's an apples to oranges comparison.

Now, got anything else for me to rip apart?

Ooooooo Tiki's maaaaaaaaaaad.

To be perfectly honest yeah I kinda was, but I'm good now.

I dunno know man, I really need to catch up, like I'm on chapter 50, but as I recall pretty much everyone in this series has their uses, just not on the same scale as Toriko's affecting the world market system with his actions.
>> No. 74617

The problem is, she's in one arc and then is never seen again.
>> No. 74618
Yeah the new Big 3 is pretty much One Piece+Naruto+Toriko. The amount of shits people should give about this: 0


Look guy, once you kiss in shonen it's all over. ALL. OVER. She probably could have pined romantically on the B list for the rest of the series but she blew it.
>> No. 74620

We see her again in the Christmas and fishing mini-arcs. She went from a fangirl with potential to annoying and kinda creepy.

Granted, she can still be salvaged, but I get the feeling she won't.
>> No. 74621

...She kissed Toriko? When was this?
>> No. 74624

I forgot Toriko's House is the BEST house.
>> No. 74625

During the Regal Mammoth arc she got a hole blown through her torso and asked Toriko for a kiss before she died. Then it turned out that Toriko's spit was her compatible food (like booze with Mansam) and she turned out all right.
>> No. 74626

Oh for the love of-

That's STUPID.

The only way she can be redeemed now is if she gets over her stupid crush and has a good fight. Which means it's pretty much impossible.
>> No. 74627
Can't wait until the dub comes out.
>> No. 74630
This series has a bunch of horrible examples of show don't tell, like whn Toriko, Kotsumo and the other guy are deep in the cave harvesting those little fish that are difficult to use knocking on.
So the bad-guy robot is leaving the cave with a bunch and kills a group of random assholes, but then suddenlly we've got this super special law enforcement dude in a trenchcoat with a sword sitting on a rock, all looking like a badass and being like "not so fast there" -chapter end.
How does this pick up next chapter? With all these important government types pissing themsevles that super special law enforcement dude got slaughtered, we never saw a moment of the fight or even LEARNED THE DUDE'S NAME!

Also I don't know if this was just a crappy translator but the language is really awkward, like its not just "{beast} is strong enough to flip a tank!" but "This {beast} can defeat even an army fighting tank weighing {however many} tonnes!"
>> No. 74632
It's generic old-school shounen mang. Having a limited amount of female characters who aren't written all that great and are useless in a fight is part of the package.
>> No. 74638

All things considered, it's probably better that the law enforcement dude died without us really knowing him. It'd be dumb to introduce him and then just be like "LOL HE'S DEAD NOW".

Early scans of it sucked, but someone's re-scanlating it now.
>> No. 74641
Yeah but it was still a really stupid way to try and hype the enemy up, and it just stood out in my memory as the most blatant example in the time I read the series.

You know what I like about Toriko?

Fucking legit threats.


Add to that Nitros, the most fucking real threat to Shonen heroes I've seen, maybe they get chumped later, but where I'm at they are FUCKING HUMANOID WATERBEARS.
>> No. 74765
I dunno, mostly it felt like the guy has a limited understanding of just how destructive humanity's weapons can be.

BTW did those three mafia mooks really get brought back to life? Something broke in me after they set off to revive them after the icy battle and I just could not find the werewithal to keep reading.
>> No. 74769
Yeah, shit was actually kinda bad ass, they got healed with phlegm and bees.

Toriko almost died numerous times regenerating his arm.

I have yet to see those guys come back and I cared absolutely nothing for them either, they pretty much left with "WE MUST GO, OUR HOME PLANET NEEDS US."

As for underestimating Nukes, their world has different rules, not even the plant life dies because everything has Gourmet cells because of Acacia essentially, so it's like "Oh, shit is radioactive now? Mushrooms that spring up in two minutes that feed on ALL of that radiation and then are IMMEDIATELY eaten by a non-stop cavalcade of creatures who also eat each other and grow stronger each time.

The Gourmet World is like going hunting in H.P Lovecraft's Dreamscape, like Toriko tries to prove he's ready to enter it and when he tries he IMMEDIATELY starts getting slaughtered by horrible, awful monsters to the point he needs both to be saved and escape.

I take it the message we're supposed to be taking from your picture is the bit about how 62.7% of Toriko's readership is male?

When did Tiki imply the homo was there to attract female readers? If that was Shimabukuro's aim, I'd imagine something would be done about the fact that all the men sans Komatsu are horrific musclebeasts.

I mean, there's bara and then there's lumpy what the fuck. I love Toriko as a series, but Shimabukuro needs to learn him some anatomy.
