With the "help" of his timid accomplice, inspired by Toriko's greatness to accompany him, he travels to capture the evasive and ferocious animals he needs to create the ultimate dinner course.

I wanna put toriko as one of my all time favorites manga, I really do, but it’s just not an amazing manga contrary to what other reviewers say. It has too many flaws to be considered great. OG Gatsu nailed it pretty well.

[Warning, this review containers quite a bit of spoilers, DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED]

Story: Pretty basic for a Shonen. Toriko and friends go to a new location to get a new food -> Monsters/Villain stands in their way to prevent Toriko and friends from reaching their goal -> the Monsters/Villains get defeated by Toriko and friends -> ...
