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 bet you’re wondering “how can a shounen about food be interesting?”. I thought the same thing until I read 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 manga
- Amazing art, with 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.

Plot (3/10):
The story takes place in the Gourmet age, a world read more

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

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 -> read more

Toriko is one of those series that comes sprinting at you with one goal in mind, and that goal is to entertain you with as much crazy bull-crap as it can before you get exhausted of it.

The manga is a fuel-injected testosterone trip about big men fighting excessively big monsters in order to make drool-inducing meals out of them. You get a one-two punch of cool action and delicious looking food; expect anything more than that and you'll be sorely disappointed.

The characters are about as deep as puddle and they merely get by on their big personalities. Any attempt to add depth to most characters read more
