Hamburgers that grow out of the ground like four-leaf clovers, mountain ranges carved out of ice cream, and warm servings of mac and cheese that stew deep within the stomachs of volcanoes fill the landscape. This world of delectable natural wonders has reached a prime age of exploration—the Gourmet Age! Citizens and chefs alike aspire to taste and prepare the finest dishes, while adventurers called "Gourmet Hunters" seek out delicious rare ingredients.

Possessing a unique set of skills, the wild and passionate Gourmet Hunter Toriko is infamous for discovering 2% of all known ingredients. Together with his friend Komatsu—a highly skilled chef working at a five-star hotel—Toriko strives to complete his Full Course Menu of Life. But it isn’t going to be easy; in order to obtain the most delicious ingredients, Toriko must battle against obstacles like deadly monsters, evil organizations, and food itself!

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. ...

Mixed Feelings
The story of Toriko takes place in the Gourmet Age. In that world people live to eat. Wars can erupt over delicious food. The main character Toriko and his partner Komatsu travel around the world to find exquisite ingredients. Toriko hunts, his partner cooks. This is the basic premise and I’ll be honest, it sounds stupid. Teenage heroes of other anime are trying to save humanity, planets, their family and friends from cool-looking edgy evil forces. But Toriko, a twenty five years old adult male, is chasing after food. It isn’t primarily a comedy anime to excuse the premise. Although soon it becomes clear ...

I bet you’re wondering “how can a shounen about food be interesting”. I thought the same thing until I watched it, and honestly it completely blew my expectations away... at first. I’ll explain what I mean later

- Unique concept and setting (Can you name another battle manga about food?)
- Godly world building. Seriously, it’s one of the best in anime/manga
- Amazing, brutal action sequences
- The hype is over 9000!!

These are the only pros I can think of for Toriko unfortunately, because i felt this series had a lot more flaws.
