GONNA EAT THE poo poo OUT OF THOSE THINGS!

Toriko is a weekly manga published in Shounen Jump by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi, and now an Anime. It tells the story about the eponymous character, a Gourmet Hunter that strives to find the yummiest foods in the World and his friend Komatsu, a young and somewhat cowardly Chef that's slowly becoming a rising star. If you like:

FOOD THAT LOOKS SO TASTY THAT YOU WANT TO EAT IT IN REAL LIFE!

RIDICULOUS CREATURES BEING BEATEN AND COOKED!

BRUTAL rear end-KICKING!

MALE BONDING BETWEEN MUSCLED MEN WITH ALMOST NO WOMEN IN SIGHT!

BUTT BUG AND BUTT SALT

Then this is the Manga for you!

Main Characters:

Toriko



Our hero, and a Gourmet Hunter, a man charged with the hunting of rare ingredients by the International Gourmet Organization. Lives in a house made of food and is an incredible glutton. Has superhuman strength and scent tracking, and is the Heavenly King associated with 'smell'.

Pet: Terry the Battle Wolf.

Komatsu


The Head Chef from the Gourmet Hotel that is partnered with Toriko. Despite having no combat capabilities, he has incredible cooking prowess and recently made it into the IGO's top 100.

Pet: Yun the Wall Penguin

Zebra


The biggest goddamn badass in the Manga, a feared Gourmet Hunter that singlehandedly extinguished many monster races. Hates "Cocky people". Is the Heavenly King associated with 'sound' and has many voice-related powers.

'Pet': Dharma Horse.

Sunny


A fabulous Gourmet Hunter who strives to only eat beautiful food. His long hair is capable of many feats of strength and can be controlled at will. Is the Heavenly King associated with 'touch'. Just discovered the taste of 'Long Pig'.

Pet: Quinn the Mother Snake.

Coco

The reasonable/boring dude of the Four Heavenly Kings. He's a Gourmet Hunter who's immune to a manifold poisons, and crafts them inside his body in order to battle. He's the Heavenly King associated with 'vision', and uses his abilities in order to become a Future-Teller with a high rate of success.

Pet: Kiss the Emperor Crow

Zombie ZONGE


The comic relief character. Declares himself a high-level Gourmet Hunter but is hilariously weak. His claim to fame is farting on an apple.

Was Tommyrod a person? Seriously, he had insects the size of all creation inside of his body. He had wings. He had a hand that could run around on its own. Looking at most of the members of the Bishokukai it's hard to say many of its members aren't other forms of life that just resemble humans.

Any and every weird rear end superpower in this manga can be explained by alternation brought about by GOURMET CELLS. Tommyrod's as human as the rest of the 8 foot tall 600 pound meat mountains that inhabit this comic. The Bishokukai are seemingly just more liberal with how they use weird surgery with the Gourmet Cells.

Tommyrod is a freakishly deformed human, which doesn't seem that strange when he is standing next to a human with prehensile omnivorous hair. Besides, inhuman strength and stomach capacity are rather generic powers in this setting.

Not quite sure what is going on with the centaur, though. Did he graft his torso on to some sort of gourmet world horse, is he an actual centaur, or did his lower body really change that much from gourmet cells?

As an aside I have to mention how much I've always loved the name "Tommyrod."

@dcurban1: #flyerstalk @28CGiroux @Hartsy19 The A and the C are supposed to mean something. Leadership not stock quotes to reporters. Time to lead.

I am going to be left wondering how and what Tommyrod cooked? Whatever it was it must have been insanely good.

He had bugs living inside him. So, they were probably eating each other and making GBS threads in his stomach. Tommyrod had some really, really weird gourmet cells.

Guy was soooo hungry that his gourmet cells grew an extra set of legs to catch up to his prey faster.

Or maybe he ate so much he grew a horse body to accommodate more stomach.

e: Early in the series Toriko once said "If I don't want to eat it, I will not kill it. If I kill it, I will eat it! That's my rule!" Does that mean if Toriko kills Starjun he has to eat him? We've seen the heavenly kings aren't above cannibalism, so who knows.

Speaking of abnormal, I was looking through the Toriko wiki and according the databook apparently President Ichiryuu weights 502 kilograms. He weights slightly more than half a metric ton, and this is apparently BEFORE his Gourmet Cells "woke up". I shutter to imagine the sheer about of HUGE he'll be able to attain.

So now Buranchi is an important enough character the he warrants his own side-battle? Or is this a case of Mitsutoshi just having a short attention span when it comes to the main cast?

Somehow I'd have to imagine that someone who can regenerate a new one of himself, seemingly equal in power to the original, from every cell of his body would have a lot of himself floating around. But then again since this is Toriko he probably eats all his copies after every fight.
