Welcome to the Toriko manga discussion thread. To discuss the anime, movies, and OVAs, go here.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

Plot: In a world where the taste and texture of food is extremely important, individuals known as Bishoku-ya, specialize in the acquisition of rare ingredients and animals. Our protagonist, Toriko, possesses incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom in order to fulfill his dream to capture the most precious foods in the world and create the ultimate dinner course. He is currently accompanied by a weak and timid chef who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and find rare ingredients.

Main Pages: Manga | Anime | Franchise | Characters

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: ?

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Fan Service,

Specific: None so far

@AnimeDefender:

I haven't started reading Toriko yet. I'm more behind than you.

Is Toriko any good? I have a feeling it's only about the power without any real story.

Now that I finished watching Hitman Reborn (I have only a few more manga chapter to wrap the franchise up), I'm searching for the next shonen anime to get into. I don't wanna see some trailers or reviews because they often have mayor spoilers (I spoiled Bleach and One Piece to myself so I don't want to do that again), I just want to know is it good...

i think othus12 should do the toriko wiki. IMO I am current with toriko and for me the manga is much better than the anime, but regardless it is an interesting and epic story so far with a numerous and memorable character cast

@bigz007: as you can tell i love toriko. the story is really good in my opinion and the powers are very creative. i think its comparable to one piece but with some big differences

-one piece has better sad and funny moments. in fact toriko focuses more on jawdropping moments. remember when luffy one shotted a pacifista for the first time i know we all went like WTF NO WAY! toriko moments are always like that.

-and the second big difference is that there is more blood in toriko. the good thing is that it doesnt come out unless its necessary.

however i think you should stick to the manga its just wayyy above the anime.

@othus12: Alright, I guess I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

I read the first 30 chapters of Toriko. It reminded me of Pokemon with the whole capture level except if you have Goku eating the Pokemon. I'm enjoying it so far.

I started reading Toriko manga. I'm at chapter 60 or so. I'm filling out what I know so far. Luckily, PikaHyper added the volumes and their table of contents. All we need to do is add the characters. I'm helping out right now. Filling Coco's powers.

How are you finding Toriko so far?

@The_Gorosei:

It's pretty fun to read. It has a lot of familiar elements I find in the other Shonen shows. The difference is that Toriko is more about exploration of the world and enjoying life. It's quite similar to One Piece's scope. Coco is pretty much my favorite character so far. He's more interesting than Toriko. Komatsu remind me of Krillin and Manta (Shaman King) for some odd reason.

@othus12:

Be sure to do your Toriko discussion here! I noticed you guys writing on each others' wall. I think you guys went past page 3 on each other walls.

Don't worry about me or others in spoilers. I know who's ahead and skip certain folks' comments. I will catch up in Toriko if I don't get bogged by work and AV projects.

@takashichea: Alright.

@othus12: So do you think Starjun looks more badass with or without the mask?

Post by othus12 (6,581 posts) See mini bio Level 13

@SpeedForceSpider: definitely without the mask. just look at how he's laughing at toriko!

Post by SpeedForceSpider (4,880 posts) See mini bio Level 15

@othus12: I agree on in the manga he looks cooler for sure. But for some reason, the anime makes him look way more badass with the mask on.

guys have you read the latest chapter of toriko? my jaw dropped...i really wasnt expecting such obscene numbers!

the sheer size of some beasts was far too incredible the foot of gouma was bigger than the regal mammoth

on top of that it was capture level 1160. what the hell>??

and then watching it almost getting stepped on was amazing

dwarfing even the creature who could alredy step on a volcano with 1 foot.

capture lvl 2650....lvl 100 was continent level.

Taking a break, I'm going to read Toriko. I'm at the Gourmet World arc where Toriko takes his Battle Wolf Terry out for a walk.

I feel like I'm reading fan fic. Toriko and Terry find a giant corn in a forest. Toriko smacks the corn to get some kernels. Now, they going to make popcorn.

Some dude wants to eat your pet wolf. Toriko is pretty random at some points.

Well, I find a familiar trait that all Shonen franchises have, a dream. Luffy's dream is be king of the pirates. Toriko's dream is find god. At first, I thought he was going to find God, but no, it's an ingredient. I wish they find a better name. I was not reading the manga with my full attention because I wiki edit and watch anime at the same time.

Edit:

When I see this old lady, she remind me somebody.
