Good morning Anime Vice! I'm one of the Toriko wiki editors, and I stumbled upon this news article in Crunchyroll. Instead of announcing Toriko anime is ending, I put the question, is Toriko ending or is it taking a break. When Fairy anime was announced to end back in March 2013, I wrote a sappy blog (News: Fairy Tail Anime is Coming to End, March 30) on Fairy Tail anime ending. I cause so many users to think it's truly ending. Then, the following year, Hiro Mashima announces the anime is coming back (Fairy Tail Anime is Back for Spring 2014). I don't want to cause another misunderstanding.
Toriko will end on March 30, 2014 after three long years, its first debut was April 2011. V Jump Magazine and Mantanweb stated that Dragon Ball Z Kai will take Toriko's time slot at 9 AM, April 6, on Fuji TV. Dragon Ball Z Kai will start the retelling of the Majin Buu saga.
For those who are new to Toriko, here is a summary:
In a world where the taste and texture of food is extremely important there exist individuals known as Bishoku-ya (luxury food providers) who specialize in the acquisition of rare ingredients and animals. Toriko is one of these hunters and it is his dream to find the most precious foods in the world and create the ultimate dinner course. As one of the most skilled hunters in the world he is regularly hired by restaurants and the rich to seek out new ingredients and rare animals. A man with inhuman ability, he utilizes his incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom to capture ferocious, evasive and rare beasts to further his final goal, the ultimate dinner course composed of the most delicious food in the world. 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.
