Toriko's Break ArcEdit

The Chief Priest along with Pahpoh is seen watching Komatsu pulling out the knife during the Food Man contest and Toriko winning the Gourtree Fruit contest. Upon seeing them share their prizes and their Food Luck with everyone present, the Chief Priest takes note that because of them the Food Man contests have ended on a very high note and Pahpoh agrees while sharing his wisdom.

The two agree upon arriving to the temple where they are greeted by the Chief Priest who quickly takes them to Pahpoh.
