Apologies for the tardiness. Weird-ass ToC this week. Very surprised at Nisekoi's rank. Even more surprised at Haikyuu!!'s - the bottom 2 for 2 issues now. We got another new series starting next week, along with an extended number of pages for a few series. Kuroko no Basket's getting 23p, Ginga Patrol Jaco 31p, Naruto 21p and Assassination Classroom 23p. Oh, and apparently in Issue #45, there's some "Big News". Could be anything. The announcement of an anime? HunterxHunter returning from hiatus? *cough*Narutofinallyending*cough*. Kurokuroku's getting its first ranking next week. I'm predicting... a little above the bottom 5. Not horrendous, but not great.

Yet again, there won't be another post from me next week as I'm going on holiday! Which means I'll be behind. Again. But when I do catch up, I should be in the swing of things and posts should be regular and frequent.

As many of you know, Toriko's my MotM for September. Give your impressions if you read it.

Toriko is a written and illustrated by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro. It has been serialized in Jump since May 19, 2008, and has been collected into 25 tankōbon volumes. It follows the adventure of Toriko, a Gourmet Hunter, as he searches for rare, diverse foods to complete a full-course meal. A man with inhuman ability, he utilizes his incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom to capture ferocious, evasive, and rare beasts to further his menu. He is accompanied by the weak and timid chef Komatsu, who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and to find rare ingredients. Toriko and his friends often fight against the Gourmet Corps, who seek to take control of the world's entire food supply and are looking for the highly-sought after ingredient GOD, which the legendary Gourmet Hunter Acacia used to end the war that took place five-hundred years before the series began.

The manga series is licensed for an English-language release by Viz Media in North America and Madman Entertainment in Australasia. Madman also licensed the anime series in Australasia, while Funimation Entertainment has licensed it in North America.

That's it for this week. Give your reactions to the ToC in the comments below! Don't forget to Follow me on Twitter, become a Follower of this blog, or Like my page on Facebook. See ya next week! ^.^

*OFF TOPIC* So, the release date for GTA V edges ever closer. I'm predicting a great number of people next week calling in sick from work and school, or just not bothering to turn up. If you're getting the game, what feature are you most excited to see? What console are you getting the game on? Speaking of, anybody heard about the petition to not bring GTA V to the PC. Wow. This is up there with the petition to bring back the anti-consumer Xbox One features...


  1. Shokugeki no Soma in first place made me smile, unlike Nisekoi's ranking. Which in fact did the opposite. I'm also still enjoying World Trigger so it's good to see it's doing okay.

    I don't think the big news will be Naruto ending (I think it will end soon though), as they probably won't hype up news like that. Hopefully it will be Hunter x Hunter returning. I can only love that series when it's not on hiatus. :P

  2. i have 4GB xbox, so i'll wait till PC release. why they didn't put 8GB flash drive with preinstalled second half, if i will need to do it anyway?
