Special shown at the Jump Super Anime Tour in 2009.

In a world where the taste and texture of food is extremely important, there exist individuals known as Bishoku-ya (luxury food providers) who specialize in the acquisition of rare ingredients and animals. Toriko is one of these hunters and it is his dream to find the most precious foods in the world and create the ultimate dinner course. As one of the most skilled hunters in the world he is regularly hired by restaurants and the rich to seek out new ingredients and rare animals.

A man with inhuman ability, he utilizes his incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom to capture ferocious, evasive and rare beasts to further his final goal, the ultimate dinner course composed of the most delicious food in the world. He is currently accompanied by a weak and timid chef who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and find rare ingredients.

The art here is amazing. The shading, colouring, action scenes and the read more

As a pilot for a series it's good, but like most episode pilots there's a reason why it remains as a stand alone feature. If you're already familiar with the concept of Toriko then there's no need to explain the premise as this review covers the differences in adaptations.

The plot is an adaptation of the first two chapters of the manga. The story of the pilot is about read more
