Hey welcome back guys, my first blog about the series Toriko, and the first chapter of 2016! Guiness really did put in some work today, and it reminds us all why we love the Toriko series, for it’s over the top feats!
The 8 kings really are the driving force of the series, the top tiers along with the disciples, and Don Slime. The feat was crazy, and it brought the excitement that Toriko normally brings when it comes to feats. The panels were well drawn, and it still continues to make us believe that the Toriko has much more room to expand as a verse that we can continue to explore. The techniques were cool.
Negatives- Really hard to feel the tension in the series where it seems like the kings can just stomp everything in their path. Also not enjoying the inner gourmet demons acting like stands. (See JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure for the reference.) Not enjoying the one shots either. I want to see one of the fights be a slug fest similar to Tommyroad vs. Toriko. Really hard not to have a tension of state belief with so many of these fights going on, and the planet has been destroyed yet.
All and all I give this chapter 6/10. It was an okay chapter, but it didn’t have much depth to the chapter, and while it has some cool feats, the story is moving at a snails paste, or really fast for my liking. So simple and short that it doesn’t have much to talk about at the dinner table! Thank you, and please comment and subscribe!
