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

How do you completely ruin a manga adaptation? Well, it looks like the creators of this anime have the right answer, because like they did their best to make this anime fail.
I mean, let's talk about it for a moment, what didn't they do?
Filler Characters: they added unnecessary filler characters and changed the storyline sometimes so the filler character could play a role in canon episodes. Why would anyone even do that?
Not enough?
Well, they also made sure to censor all the blood, I mean, almost getting killed and yet just having a few scratches is just natural!
Wait, still not enough for you?
Toriko smokes in the 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

Anime: One Piece
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.

Anime: JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken (2012)
Both series are loaded with super muscular men, full shounen style and packed with comedy! 
reportRecommended by Kururu4ever
Anime: Shokugeki no Souma
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 
reportRecommended by kaushik17
Anime: Hunter x Hunter
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. 
reportRecommended by chinhnt2k3
Anime: Dragon Ball
Both of the main characters like to punch the shit out of animals and then eat them. 
reportRecommended by SlayerJim
Anime: Kinnikuman Nisei
For better or worse both series are based on manga with gritty combat, however their anime adaptations contain a childish tone and reduced violence from its source material. If that doesn't bother you, then give these masculine shonens a try with Ultimate Muscle featuring zany superhero wrestling & Toriko displaying multiple super powers.
