Toriko (Anime) add (All reviews)

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 turn off for some, Toriko utilizes this to a high degree making each arc dynamic and different. I would highly recommend anyone to read this shonen. And I also recommend people to stay away from the anime because of the inconstancies between the show and manga, lack of brutality (edited out for child viewers), and also length. The anime only goes up to the Gourmet Festival.

I am really enjoying Toriko and I feel it still has its best work ahead of it!

PLEASE READ THE MANGA!!! And if you do watch the anime first, then watch it, then pick up the manga. I promise you it is totally worth it.
