This year's 49th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro's Toriko manga will publish a "climax" chapter in the magazine's 50th issue, which Shueisha will publish on November 14. The word "climax" written in the phonetic katakana alphabet often refers to the final chapter of a manga. The expanded "full course" chapter will have 31 pages.

Viz Media publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the manga:

In a savage world ruled by the pursuit of the most delicious foods, it's either eat or be eaten!

Gourmet Hunter Toriko! This is the great era of gourmet food! And only Toriko can hunt down the ferocious ingredients that supply the world's best restaurants. As a gourmet hunter, Toriko tracks and defeats the tastiest and most dangerous animals with his bare hands.

Shimabukuro launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2008, and Shueisha published the manga's 41st compiled book volume on October 4. Viz Media publishes new chapters of the manga digitally simultaneously with the Japanese release in its digital English version of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and also published the manga's 35th volume on August 2.
