Finally, after 250 chapters, it looks like we will get the most important flashback and longest as of yet. So flashbacks in Toriko are usually less than one chapter long, but this looks like it could last a couple more chapters, and I’m loving the introduction to it.
So due to the harsh environment and the strong creatures in the Gourmet World, whenever a battle happens, a vortex forms in the surrounding atmosphere. Looking at the high powers of Ichiryu and Midora, the vortex they created was enormous. Of course, looking at the situation at hand, Ichiryu would remove “Minority World”. However, that did not stop Midora from taking more chunks out of Ichiryu’s body. We got some explanation about “Hungry Tongue” which I thought was needed.
We head into the flashback, as we see a young Midora starving during the Gourmet War. The fact that people used kids as food for livestock was just sick. Midora was a natural born predator, so people tried to eliminate him while he was young. As we see more of Midora’s hardship life, his body could not endure anymore, and he was found by the “God Chef”, Froese.
As I said in the beginning, I loved the introduction of this flashback. This is shaping up to be a very important flashback. It is about Midora’s life when he was young. It took place during the Gourmet War and of course the involvement of Froese and possibly Acacia later. Furthermore, I’m interested in seeing Ichiryu and Jiro in this flashback, if Shimabukuro decides to show us a little of their training with Acacia.
