Summary[edit | edit source]
In a world where the taste and texture of food is extremely important there exist individuals known as Bishokuya (luxury food providers) who specialize in the acquisition of rare ingredients and animals. The titular character and leading protagonist, 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 famous hunters in the Human 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 Komatsu, a weak and timid chef who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and find rare ingredients. The series is ongoing. The manga has a fair amount of spin-off material considering how it's fairly new, having spawned an ongoing anime series, an OVA, a crossover anime special with One Piece, as well as a Cross Epoch style manga crossover. A movie based on Shimabukuro's original 2008 one shot, and 3 video games have also been created. A spin-off manga called Gourmet Gakuen Toriko is also running.

On top of that, Toriko has the largest sample size of powerful characters in recent memory of Shounen Jump, having several star-sized monsters and even larger ones like Space Taipan.
