Synopsis

Welcome to the Gourmet Age, where happiness is measured by what you eat. In an era in which life revolves around fine cuisine, people will go to great lengths to procure special ingredients which have the power to turn a nice meal into a heavenly delight. However, since these delicious additives usually come from rare, powerful creatures, Gourmet Hunters are called upon to gather them.

The International Gourmet Organization has the utmost power in this world, and is responsible for maintaining the balance of the distribution of ingredients worldwide. One day, Chef Komatsu is sent on a mission to locate one of the most renowned Gourmet Hunters in existence, Toriko, and to hire him for a very special job.

However, astounded by Toriko's skill and unbelievable passion, what started out as a simple mission gradually grows into a deep friendship. Combine the talents of Gourmet Hunter Toriko, who dreams of creating the ultimate Full Course meal, and Chef Komatsu, who aspires to one day become a Master Chef, and the recipe for success may just be discovered.

Background

The first episode is actually a two-part special called "Toriko x One Piece Collabo Special"—a crossover with One Piece. The first part aired during Toriko's timeslot at 9:00, and the second part aired during One Piece's timeslot at 9:30. That is also the reason why the second Toriko episode doesn't continue where the first one left off.

Episode 51 is the first part of a two-part special called "Toriko x One Piece Collabo Special 2"—another crossover with One Piece. The second part is One Piece episode 542. The first part aired during Toriko's timeslot at 9:00, and the second part aired during One Piece's timeslot at 9:30.

Episode 99 is the first part of a two-part special called "Dream 9 Toriko & One Piece & Dragon Ball Z Super Collaboration Special"—a crossover with One Piece and Dragon Ball Z. The second part is One Piece episode 590. The first part aired during Toriko's timeslot at 9:00, and the second part aired during One Piece's timeslot at 9:30.

"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).

The anime(well the entire franchise) is simply stupid, character designs are not attractive at all, the characters personality reasoning is way too shallow like they're grade schoolers despite all being over 20, and introduction made for each chara is dull(a guy inviting another guy who appear to be fishing to hunt a gator with him and he suddenly agrees? that's way too dumb.)

The theme of the story, despite being original, is still stupid. The story is trying to say everything in the entire world is edible or somehow related to eating, which is a very stupid concept, if everyone in the world care about what 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
