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: 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

WARNING: Anime doesn't cover all of the manga. Toriko is a series where MANLY MEN have gritty fights against villains & monsters for the sake of heroism & food.

Many people have told me how much they hated the anime & prefer reading its manga, which is fine but I'm here to give my honest opinions about the animes pros & cons.

Toriko's concept is one of hunting & cooking where our heroes "The 4 Heavenly Kings" (Toriko, Coco, Sunny & Zebra) explore the unknown lands of the Gourmet Age where exotic food stimulates power resulting into a war which purpose is to obtain "GOD"; the read more

Okay, so to start I originally watched the first 20ish episodes of Toriko a couple years ago but then put it down because it just wasn't that appealing to me. Two weeks ago I decided to pick up the manga because I heard it was better than the anime. Still skeptical I powered past what happened in the anime, in the manga. After that, it was all downhill for me.

I read through over 300 chapters of Toriko in a week. The characters and progressing story had me going through dozens of chapters a day. While the concept of a food world/combat may be a read more
