What do you think of Toriko? I ignored it based purely on the gimmick, but now I look again and it seems to be trying to channel both One Piece and Hunter x Hunter. I could see it all working poorly, but this could also be one of those series I'll enjoy regardless of if it's actually good.
And yeah, I forgot about HxH. I'll be reading whenever that shows up.

It isn't something good enough that I'd recommend but considering its length and the fact it hasn't gone down the typical path of terrible yet, it's at least a fun read. It has issues with power creep, and I think it's starting to get dumb (arc transition atm so this is more based on what I think is coming), but the plot as a whole has been fairly simplistic which means a lack of plot twists that dig holes for the author, though again, the latest developments might change that.
