In a world where the taste and texture of food are an extremely important part of life, a man with superhuman skills is regularly hired by restaurants and the rich as a hunter of precious foods. With the "help" of his timid accomplice, inspired by Toriko's greatness to accompany him, he travels to capture the evasive and ferocious animals he needs to create the ultimate dinner course.

This Review is for those who are intending on reading toriko so its About time someone gave an honest objective reason as to why someone should read the Manga without any spoilers...
So let me give you Toriko's main Pros & Cons:

Pros
+ World Building
This is where Toriko has an obvious advantage over the typical battle shounens. The sheer scale and diversity of the planet in which the story is set is awesome!.

+ Battles
The fights in Toriko highlight the "battle" in being a battle shounen. More often than not, in head to head fights there are no holds barred. Characters just don't give a flying F read more

Ah, Toriko. One of the manga series that have actually made me want to eat more....and increase my stomach capacity.

Intro, intro!
Toriko is a manga that is all about food. I don't mean just cooking. I mean hunting and then eating the food! The art indeed makes the food in the manga that it has very juicy and very good looking that sometimes you'll be salivating to the picture!

Ugh, I'm hungry now, but lets move on to the story!

-STORY-
I have little to say about the story. It has a good concept with the whole "Gourmet Era" or should I say, the read more

There are a lot of manga to read out there, so why pick up Toriko
I suppose the concept of a manga being based around food could be a turn off, but it's a lot more than that.

- Story -
It's about a hunter called Toriko who is out to complete the full course menu of his life.
He meets with a cook called Komatsu and from there travel together along with their friends Coco, Sani and Zebra to find "GOD" the ultimate ingredient which can save or end an era.

- Length-
Toriko has a bit more than 300 chapter at the moment but it's easy read read more

I'm going to keep this sort and sweet. I read alot of manga and i know when ive come across something original. I found just about everything good in this manga. Ive got nothing bad to say about it. Toriko should be ranked alot higher than it is and im sure once people get over "its about food blah" it will become very liked. Give it a try and your see why! But a fair warning the art is good to the point it will make you hungry lol
