Story: Is filled with many ups and downs. From the get-go you will be immersed in the original tale of six unique friends. The OP will prepare you for the episode as you will find yourself tearing up towards the end of half of the series. The ED is also a nice suitable conclusion to every episode. Although there are a lot of happy times, don't be fooled, you will have your share of anger and frustration throughout this well-balanced series.
Art: WOW. Need I say more? The lighting and darkness of certain scenes renders for a perfect blend of emotion.
Sound: The music is perfect for this anime: nice tempo, rhythm, and beat.
Character: Like I said before, everyone has their own personality which makes for a very interesting series. Even though the six friends have their own objectives and personalities, their main concern comes from instinctual feelings: importance of friendship.
Overall, this anime was a nice blend of drama, romance, comedy, and adventure. If you enjoy a good slice-of-life anime along with a few twists and mysteries, check this out!

The story, is simply juicy and riveting. Similar to One Piece, Toriko is made up of an immensely gargantuan world filled with many surprises, wonders, and mysteries.
The art is on par with any modern era Japanese anime. The emphasis and exaggeration on the food (especially "key" food items) is mouth watering. You'll soon find yourself engulfed in a sparkling, tender, and juicy piece of prime rib. The environment and color of the anime is beautiful and breathtaking at times.
The sound, is decent. The OP and ED could be much better as the music is not very catchy.
The characters, need to develop more. I know the anime is called "Toriko" but I don't feel a close bond with any of the characters yet. With that being said, the story has A LOT of room to develop so they have plenty of time to fix this issue.
Pros - Food is very well detailed and exaggerated (in a good way of course :D). World is vast which makes room for a HUGE adventure and a LONG lasting series. The art and environment is absolutely beautiful!
Cons - Character development/connection not there (may take some time, be patient), awkward fight scenes (if you are used to Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece fight scenes you may be disappointed, but bear in mind this anime does not fail on some cool combat moves in here), OP and ED need to go.
Overall, if you love food and a world filled with mysterious creatures, give this anime a shot!
