Back from holiday, bitches! Also managed to return with what I assume to be bedbugs from my hotel. And herpes. And there was this MASSIVE rat that I saw once from my room window, running across some abandoned part of the town. But anyway, a mostly-good ToC for me this week. Kurokuroku has a fucking horrific first ranking. However, Sket Dance's first ranking was also bottom, and we know how it turned out. I, however, think this'll be a swift cancellation. And I'm always right, so there.

There's a special collaboration next week of Assassination Classroom and Kuroko no Basket, which I did not see coming, and we're also apparently getting some big news in the next issue. I really have no clue as to what it could be. Maybe Jump's going out of business or something, I dunno.

Now for my MotM slot. Here's some info about Toriko, give the series a try if you don't follow it. If you do, please give your impressions.

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 tankĊbon 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! ^.^


  1. Thank you for the report! XD
    By the way, why is Kurokuroku get first rank but placed in the most bottom place?

    1. It's the first time it is ranked, it isn't ranked first place (last place in fact, which is really bad for a new series). If that's what you're confused about. :)

  2. Assassination Classroom and Kuroko no Basket collaboration! Woooo! This must be the big news they announced last week, because I can't see anything topping it. :P

    1. I dunno, they said there'd big news being announced in the next issue. Otherwise this would be the big news for this issue, if that makes sense. I could be wrong, of course.

  3. maybe the 45th anniversary and the big news of j-stars victory vs
