I wonder how the blue oni and the red oni could eat something different, actually how do they even interact with Toriko? Are they a separate entity? They seem to reside within him, then they seem to have their own physical body, at this point I'm totally lost.

 

Check out chapter 226 page 5.

I believe that just like Sunny has 'Satan Hair', Toriko has his blue oni.

I wonder which enemies will show up to battle zebra and other heavenly kings and their teammates... I guess in the end it will be "shared"  the air .

I wonder how the blue oni and the red oni could eat something different, actually how do they even interact with Toriko? Are they a separate entity? They seem to reside within him, then they seem to have their own physical body, at this point I'm totally lost.

I just hope the explanation won't be as rushed as the battle and Air's discovery, perhaps will Air's cooking slow things down a bit?

 

On another note, why do they bother to make such huge, difficult to use kitchen utensils? It almost makes no sense, a kitchen utensil is made to help cooking as far as I know, if it becomes a problem of its own, I don't see the necessity of having such a thing, I mean Komatsu will never be able to lift that thing. Unless Buranchi would be the one doing the cooking/harvesting this time...

Frohze basically had 2 Inner Demons like Toriko. Joa the other demon escaped from her body, after Midora kept using the cure water on Frohze's grave. That's why Toriko's other demon was able to go out from his body.

@ Pure Darkness

 Read chapter 541 page 15 and 16. But if you still like to argue, know this: Fake Zangetsu didn't say he will be staying.

i guess it could be taken that way. still doesn't outright say he lost them though. unless you and i read different tl's.

man this appetite thing is hard to get ahold of. i guess i just need to think of them like toriko's attacks how they exist but don't.
is the tl wrong here or were blue and red mixed up? i though blue was toriko's normal oni and red was the one that just came out. so why does red call himself blue?

Zebra looks a bit different...like more matured? lol

@ Pure Darkness

 Read chapter 541 page 15 and 16. But if you still like to argue, know this: Fake Zangetsu didn't say he will be staying.

Is it just me or this arc feels a bit rushed? I mean the arc only has 10 chapters so far and it looks like it's already close to ending :o

 

kay

the actual fuck are the farlands aka when were they mentioned

Spoiler

As for asspulls, this isn't the first time something like this has happened in Toriko. It's been foreshadowed to kingdom come for who knows how long. There's literally nothing in this chapter that hasn't been foreshadowed or hinted at.

you are soo wrong lol

 

firstly Toriko is not fighting on par with the 8 kings. he is unconscious being used like a bitch.

 

2. One puch is hardly fighting on par lol

 

3. Toriko is going to pay a truck load for that and be on the brink of death in he doesn't eat air.

 

4. Oni comes in twos a red and a blue, if u din know not my prob.

 

5. I have been waiting for the other monster/s to show themselves for a long time, though i was also face palming. Because of course his demon is an oni and red at that so it should have been blue all the clues were there it is a japaneses manga after all

 

6. the author loves this kind of shit. Remember Ichiryuu's death. I picture shima-sensei laughing while drawing this chapter saying suckers lol.

 

7. Not an ass pull, you just having been looking at the clues, though the cure water surprised me too (which was the only surprise in this chapter)

 

8. Red is able to fight on par with the 8 kings but he is still weak because toriko is still weak as red says.

 

9. Blue is most likely for the farlands so of course he is stronger than the 8 kings. My theory is that after toriko eats the full course and controls red fully, he will just only begin to be able to bring out blue.

 

Blue is needed for the farlands that will have monsters stronger than the 8 kings.

 

P.S. did i mention that toriko is being used like a bitch. How is he fighting on par when he can't see what happening lol

 

Ass pull my ass, it was just a case of suspense.

 

the cure water was the only surprise and it was used to be able to bring out blue, because toriko wasn't going to die we all know it so SHUT UP.

the actual fuck are the farlands aka when were they mentioned

I love toriko, but I don't know its logic anymore. I mean is the demon imaginary or what? They're humans and their techniques  has been so for logically plausible. But I don't know what's on anymore.

Don't use your own brand of logic here. Use the premise where the story takes place. 

how did you draw the conclusion that ichigo lost his quincy powers? the only way i know a quincy could lose his powers is to perform some kinda absurd ritual or something, or have the bacht steal them.
from what i understood from that chapters was that part of his soul or whatever was holding back most of his power, quincy included. and he decided that it was time to stop that so now ichigo's supposed to have all his power unlocked now. shinigami, hollow, AND quincy.  at least thats what i understood. never saw anything that said "you'll get all your powers unleashed but im taking the quincy part away"
 

 

 

the red oni is 8 kings strong, stronger than the blue oni which made the 8 kings flinch. in other words the strongest mofo in land. he's so strong that toriko's body and gormet cells can't possibly withstand the power right now. only thanks to the cure water (which was introduced in a flashback a ways ago) is this little show of power possible without killing toriko. as for what the blue oni and red oni are. my guess is symbiotic parasites. that or toriko is secretly an oni.

 

you are soo wrong lol

I like it when people argue :D

Your fangirl is showing.

 

Implying he has another power is completely different from "oh by the way there's another power that makes him capable of LITERALLY FIGHTING ON PAR WITH THE 8 KINGS." Going from "Getting exhaled on destroyed half my body!" to "IMMA KICK YOU SO HARD IN THE FACE" in the span of a single chapter most definitely qualifies as "asspull" power ups. I wouldn't be nearly as annoyed at this turn of events if Toriko hadn't suddenly been fighting on par with one of the 8 Kings. That's just bullshit. At most, if they wanted to power him up, it should be that he's able to be a passable distraction and still get an ass whupping. Not the capability to fight with Heracles mano-a-horsey.

 

Then you combine the Cure Water (which, by the way, wasn't given by Ichiryuu like you somehow are convinced it was, but was provided by Chichi, who implies to have gotten it on his own - good job remembering something 100 chapters back but forgetting something from the last chapter), which was only revealed to be present in a flashback AFTER Toriko gets half his body quite literally blown away? Yeah, no, that's an ass pull no matter how much you adore the series. I'm a fan of Toriko in general but this is too much.

 

This could've been handled a lot better, and a lot simpler - show that they have the Cure Water BEFORE they depart. Then, everyone knows they have it and it isn't a bit of disgustingly blatant deus ex machina, it's actually a passably well done plot device. Yeah, it would've lessened the drama of Toriko getting blown in half, but that could be remedied in other fashions, perhaps by showing the bottle rolling out of his reach, then by having a random horse break the bottle next chapter, the water trickling its way down to Toriko and healing him THAT way. The Blue Oni could still make an appearance, since it's going to be a thing regardless, but it shouldn't be the ridiculously huge power boost it is. That's what's all deus ex machina-y about it; it's not that it exists, it's that it gives Toriko the power to suddenly kick Heracles in the face and actually INJURE ONE OF THE 8 KINGS. I'll put it in DBZ terms: It's the rough equivalent of having Goku (regular, not SSJ3) fight Hercule, then suddenly giving Hercule a power boost so he can actually fight Goku on par. THAT is the power gap suddenly being bridged here. This isn't even hyperbole, the 8 Kings are hyped up THAT MUCH, and Toriko is, in comparison, THAT WEAK. That's why it's a deus ex machina. Not because "lol wut cure water" or "blue oni wat," it's a combination of things never being explained at all in regards to the cure water plus a power boost of this magnitude being completely unwarranted.

Every single one of you calling it an ass-pull makes me feel sick. Were you guys living under a rock for the past decade or so? Also, if you guys think the curewater is an ass-pull. Can't every single one of you understand that Ichiryuu prepared everything that might be needed for the adventure? He even prepared tons of cooking equipments inside the fucking Octopus.

What the fuck!.. Seriously!

Oh man thanks a lot! this is the only thing i was missing, i refused to believe the author not giving us any hints about the second appetite demon.

As for the cure water we all knew about its existence plus we now know what exactly was the other thing that was given to them img000006.png

Whoa.... Heracles got one to the face. The blue oni cam out of nowhere though :(

.... Uh, wow? Please, I've hated the way this Mangas been going for the past few hundred and more chapters. Where did all the cooking and drool worthy descriptions go D: And so not cool pulling out this whole new power up on us :/

hero gets defeated, hero comes back stronger

The water and the oni's aren't even all that bad seperately... BUT WHY THE HECK DID BOTH OF THEM NEED TO COME INTO PLAY!?

Plot Armor Activated

Don't worry, I already gave up when the main character started manifesting cutlery out of thin air, now I just seat back and let it shove food and muscle porn in my face.

 

(You see the trick to reading shounen is to see with your eyes but never your mind.)

The amount of deus ex machina in this chapter is absurd.

 

Here, take this regeneration bean water, also Toriko this isn't even your final form!

Ichigo's powers are like biology. He inherit them from his parents. His mom has been attack by a hollow, so before the series he has been a fullbring. Rukia activated his shinigami powers, but then lost them; On the second revival he obtain hollow powers (courtesy form his mother's attacker), but then lost them; On the revival, his quincy powers left his soul and that how he got two swords.  Anyway Ichigo's powers hasn't come and go, instead they've been switch on and off.

 

P.S: Some people may say that he still his quincy powers, but that is not the case. The wiki may contradict me, but know this; The dummies over there always adding stuff with no remorse, while the smart ones wait to get the full detail. So basically, trust your experience.

how did you draw the conclusion that ichigo lost his quincy powers? the only way i know a quincy could lose his powers is to perform some kinda absurd ritual or something, or have the bacht steal them.
from what i understood from that chapters was that part of his soul or whatever was holding back most of his power, quincy included. and he decided that it was time to stop that so now ichigo's supposed to have all his power unlocked now. shinigami, hollow, AND quincy.  at least thats what i understood. never saw anything that said "you'll get all your powers unleashed but im taking the quincy part away"
 

 

 

Its not that he can fight Heracles on an even footing from what I can tell.. he activated his blue cells but at the same time they are only expecting to hold out until Komatsu is done making Air. I don't think that in a prolonged fight the Blue Oni can fight Heracles because Toriko's body just can't hold out to the Blue Oni actively taking over, from what we can see (remember, he asks the Red Oni if Toriko can withstand him occupying Toriko's body right now). I don't know if this means that the Red Oni is weaker than the Blue Oni then? I don't understand because the Red Oni says that he can't use his complete power right now.. because Toriko is still weak? But then why is he asking the Blue Oni to take over, does that mean that the Blue Oni is way stronger? lol

Healing water was introduced during a flashback some time ago, about Acacia and his merry band.

Red Oni "use" consumes Toriko energy reserves and even Toriko (autophagy). Blue Oni's use might be the same, but even more extreme, replacing parts of Toriko with himself seems to be the case, like the hair.

Red's power is linked with the mount of power Toriko has, the quality of ingredients ingested, the amount of food and the calories reserves. His power might surpass Blue if Toriko eats higher quality ingredients that attune with red cells.

First of all, there are a lot of coincidences here. The healing water was introduced.. then the Blue Oni in Toriko and lastly how Komatsu cooks the Air tree before leaving which conveniently feeds off the Blue Oni, helping him to come out after Toriko is healed. There are usually no coincidences but what else is this? Does Toriko have surviving luck (like Komatsu's food luck? or what.. lol)

But then why is he asking the Blue Oni to take over, does that mean that the Blue Oni is way stronger? lol

I think the Red Oni might be more of a 'parasite' and Toriko's specs will reflect how much of his true ability he can use, while the Blue Oni is more of a 'different entity' so it doesn't matter at all whether or not Toriko's specs are high enough to reflect his abilities, he only needs Toriko to be strong enough to sustain him

Okay lets ignore that there is suddenly introduced a new being in Toriko and healig water. So he can survive. Neither of this even remotely justifies that he is able to fight against heracles a being that was described nearly godlike. Running away from him or getting his attention may make sense. Hitting him just doesn't.

well it would be boring if they only had different techniques that came off the same source of power since the start. im surprised it took this long. i guess that shows how interesting the whole manga is to the japs.

 

for naruto, there was the different types of chakra that naruto gained thru the years. from his normal chakra, then kyuubi, then nature, then the fully unleashed kyuubi, then the sage's chakra.

 

for one piece, it started with luffy's devil fruit power, then his manipulation of that power ( gear 2nd and 3rd), then haki and most recently, the combination of all of those.

 

for bleach, no idea. i never really read bleach so yea i dont have the full details but it was his shinigami powers at first then his sword's evolution, then that time when he lost his shinigami powers he gained a new power then when he lost his sword he gained a new one again with matching armor if im not mistaken.

 

for hunter x hunter, at first it's just their physical prowess and skill along with gon's fishing rod. then they learned about the basics of nen (which in my opinion is the most detailed power out of all the ones i mentioned. seriously, togashi is a friggin genius.) then it evolved into training their specific types which in gon's case is reinforcement. then their special attack or if im not mistaken their hatsu. then ofcourse, triggered by gon's grief, the most epic rage-filled transformation in recent history (something that's still not sure if an actual skill of gon's ancestry or if it's something available to anyone.)

 

for this manga, it started with their basic physical skills that's named and modeled after stuff related to cooking. then other minor skills like their gourmet cells going in emergency mode, then food honor, and now, the 'beasts' that everyone probably thought of as mere monstrous representations of their hunger and not actually something other's can see. and now, the other forms of those beasts. so yea i think it's not that weird to introduce them this late. it actually makes things more interesting.

if i remember correctly Gon's transformation was a corruption of his reinforcement nen where he basically sacrifices all his life force for one single extreme power up

I love toriko, but I don't know its logic anymore. I mean is the demon imaginary or what? They're humans and their techniques  has been so for logically plausible. But I don't know what's on anymore.

 

Don't worry, I already gave up when the main character started manifesting cutlery out of thin air, now I just seat back and let it shove food and muscle porn in my face.

 

(You see the trick to reading shounen is to see with your eyes but never your mind.)

Ichigo's powers are like biology. He inherit them from his parents. His mom has been attack by a hollow, so before the series he has been a fullbring. Rukia activated his shinigami powers, but then lost them; On the second revival he obtain hollow powers (courtesy form his mother's attacker), but then lost them; On the revival, his quincy powers left his soul and that how he got two swords.  Anyway Ichigo's powers hasn't come and go, instead they've been switch on and off.

 

P.S: Some people may say that he still has quincy powers, but that is not the case. The wiki may contradict me, but know this; The dummies over there always adding stuff with no remorse, while the smart ones wait to get the full detail. So basically, trust your experience.
