WARNING: Anime doesn't cover all of the manga. Toriko is a series where MANLY MEN have gritty fights against villains & monsters for the sake of heroism & food.

Many people have told me how much they hated the anime & prefer reading its manga, which is fine but I'm here to give my honest opinions about the animes pros & cons.

Toriko's concept is one of hunting & cooking where our heroes "The 4 Heavenly Kings" (Toriko, Coco, Sunny & Zebra) explore the unknown lands of the Gourmet Age where exotic food stimulates power resulting into a war which purpose is to obtain "GOD"; the read more

Warning: This is edited review after completing the series. My rating for this anime is based on comparison with other shounen for the sake of getting relatively more objective. In case you want to know how Toriko can be compared with all the anime out there, drop 2 points from each rating, its overall score is 6 (fine), above avarage but not great.

Toriko falls to shounen anime, which are generally very popular and most people outside Japan learn anime by watching shounen. However, although Toriko is on par with other successful shounen, it is not as popular as Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail or ohers. Main read more

"Cooking is as masculine as judo, kickboxing or tae kwan do. Anyone can fight but it takes a special man to craft the perfect Bolognese sauce"
Quoted from a manly midget chef...

You know the first thing that crossed my mind when I read that quote was covering a cow with ketchup then proceed to pound the cow into bolognese sauce.
Im just kidding of course, that isn't call MANLY... that's called animal abuse...

So chances are if you stumble upon this anime, you're not watching it just to fill up your boring life with some boring junk. No.. You hunt for exotic food on a daily basis. read more

WARNING: In my Review I go on tangents, but that's just the way I roll because I like barbeque sauce on my chicken nuggets. And don't you forget it.

There are two reasons that I watch anime:

1) I want to see something with depth that is intellectually stimulating where the characters and story weave a fascinating tale with twists and turns. One Anime that did this for me was Kaiji.

2) I just want to relax and experience an enjoyable adventure with a memorable cast of characters. In this category I mostly look for the theme and eye candy (meaning the quality of the art).

Toriko and One Piece share a massive world which is build up brilliantly. Both feature a great cast of shounen characters that develop strongly throughout the series in a series of adventures and missions. 
Both series are loaded with super muscular men, full shounen style and packed with comedy! 
Both the shows involve eating. While toriko is more battle oriented, shokugeki takes place inside the kitchen. Add over the top reactions and you basically got very yummy and tasty animes 
The concept of hunting for exotic food instantly reminded me of Hunter x Hunter, although it was only mentioned in a few episodes in this series. 
Both of the main characters like to punch the shit out of animals and then eat them. 
Both series deal with a lot of food and it features similar characters. They both feature battles, which in Toriko are actually battles using supernatural attacks and martial arts, while Yakitate!! Japan actually battles through the art of cooking.
