Toriko synopsis:

Welcome to the Gourmet Age, a time when the world is full of deliciously deadly ingredients that the wealthiest appetites in existence can’t wait to devour. But only a mighty masticating mercenary like Toriko can track down the rarest animals on the planet and put them on a plate! This gluttonous gourmet hunter is one of the four Legendary Kings, superhuman warriors born to battle the likes of Troll Kongs, Gararagators, and Devil Pythons! Accompanied by his loyal Battle Wolf and the promising young chef Komatsu, Toriko will circle the globe in search of the mouth-wateringly lethal ingredients that will one day make up his Full Course Menu of Life! The more ferocious the beast – the bigger the feast, but never forget the code of a true gourmet hunter: You gotta eat what you defeat!


The first dual-language DVD set is scheduled to release January 8, 2013. Subsequent volumes will release on DVD throughout 2013 from Funimation.


Rating is TV-14
