Got more pages than Bleach. smh

Anyway, another long runner is ending. It was a (*insert opinion here*) ride.

The manga had been underwhelming for a long time.

Really? This last arc has been completely mental.

In the best ways possible.

Certainly ending better then the damp fart that was Bleach.

And way better then Naruto.

I think Naruto was the damp fart if we're talking about final arcs, but that's just my opinion

Honesty thats weak imo you literally just trying to make toriko seem better by comparison. Thats just a cheap tack tick people use when they know they really cant defend a series they like with anything aside from calling it cool. Dont get me wrong i didn't care for bleachs last arc(fights where meh) and narutos final arc was underwhelming asf but the least you could do is defend toriko with its own merits instead of just pushing 2 of the most overhyped shonen in the conversation to make it look good.

You can tell the mangaka has been running at a mad dash sprint to the end with the manga. He has been ripping through tons of loose plot threads and almost every chapter is a giant exposition dump on the readers. I am pretty sure he was told to wrap the series up. The anime got cancelled a while ago and Toriko's popularity and sales numbers have been consistently dropping the last couple of years.

it's pretty ironic, Jump tried to push the series as the next big thing, and it just never took off so they gave up on overly promoting it(toei even did that crossover with One piece and DBZ which was weird to see them fight because Goku should be obliterating Luffy and Toriko like ants but that's besides the point) it didn't help that the anime version was utter ass

There was a year or two where Toriko was up there in sales and was a pretty popular manga. Then the series dropped off pretty quickly especially after the anime got cancelled and now it isn't even in the top 30 in manga sales.

it's a shame, it's not a bad manga (granted not one of my favorites but it has it's moments) but it's a victim of Jump's cancellation purge

Well poof This series went down hill time ago, sales as well, only makes sense for Toriko to go now while it can and give the other WSJ series a chance to shine (Haikyuu, Boku no academia, Shoukgeki no soma etc)
