* Based on a shounen manga by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi serialised in Weekly Shounen Jump.
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.
Note: The first episode is actually a 2 part special called Toriko x One Piece Collabo Special – a crossover with One Piece. The first part aired on Toriko`s timeslot at 9:00 and the second part aired on One Piece`s timeslot at 9:30. That is also the reason why the second Toriko episode doesn`t continue where the first one left off.
