This manga is a classic example of Jump axeing their good manga line of battle shonen , its a shame too the anime got canceled so there was no point in keeping the manga alive , Toriko is about Toriko who wants to complete his full course meal , aka his favorite food list its also got Komasu too , the Toei anime really ruined this series greatness , the manga is better than the anime that for sure , the ending is rush as its was a manga facing cancellation , the series art and world building was amazing ...

Mixed Feelings

I saw the anime about 2 years ago and was mostly disappointed due to the lack of quality and the use of almost all Shounen clichés.
Some people recommended that I read the manga, claiming -it is much better than the anime adaptation-
Was it like that? Was he really better? The answer is "yes", the manga is better, but this sense of achievement is also limited. Despite everything, the manga could only fight for a barely average result until the end, no matter what happened.

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

- 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.
