ANN Review: Toriko (Vol. 01)

ANN Review: Toriko (Vol. 01)

With volume two of this series coming out shortly, seems like a good time to direct any curious-readers to my review of Toriko (Vol. 01) over at AnimeNewsNetwork.

What to say about this book… well, I definitely liked it. It’s weird, that’s for sure and I’ll admit I didn’t see myself so immediately warming up to a story about a huge musclely food-disposer beating up giant beasts with his own bare hands for the sake of a tasty meal. Who would’ve thought? Toriko is sort of gross but also sort of endearing in his own beefy shonen-hero sort of way. His little sidekick chef also kept reminding me of Kuririn (from Dragonball) which I swear had no effect on my affection for him. I don’t think.

I’m looking forward to volume two, to see how these culinary-quests play out.
