Toriko is pretty good. Please read it.

This series is something that I will always have fond memories of. I read this all the way through high school and it was possibly one of my favorite series ever. Bursting with character, creative ideas both by the SHIMABUKURO and his fans, and really AWESOME fights, Toriko is definitely something to behold.

Food is not just food in this series. SHIMABUKURO, throughout the series, shows the importance that food can have on society and the individuals that inhabit it. It is used not only to give sustenance, but it can be used to make economies thrive and helps us read more

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 almost 400 chapters but it's easy read since the arcs have a fast read more
