It's a nice manga...

Hm... A lot of "1" rating. I bet most of the people who put "1" didn't even read this manga. I admit, the plot seems awful: A man who hunts food for rich people. Ok... And the start is not the good neither... But around chapter 18, it turns out to be one of the bests manga of jump recently. It has many fights, great humor, an average art and even some creativity (something rare in popular mangas).
Well, if it's so good, why did I gave it a 7? Because it's a good manga, but doesn't deserve a 10. It's that kind of manga that will do anything public wants. And also, it's one of those mangas that is in the line of One Piece.
But talking about good things agains, his positive points are: Characters that really surprise you, a great humor, not too long and interesting fights and mainly, a plot that apparentely will be boring, but when you realize, you're addicted to it.

eh this was much better than that basket ball manga it came out with at the same time i gave both a 1 at the beginning cause it didn't meet my expectations and I'm still angry about mx0 being taken off for this and the basketball Manga. I'm so happy that dam basketball manga died but still disappointed that they killed mx0... this may not have replaced mx0 in my favorites but still its not bad

I was one of the those who gave it 1 rating in the beginning, but it turns out not bad at all. Those who gave it a 1 people read just 1 chapter and disappointed in it, probably just it was serialized in weekly shounen jump. they had huge expectation i guess.

A while back I thought I would read a chapter just to see what it was about. Well, before I knew it I had read 10 more. The art is interesting, the characters are likable, the story is unique, and it kind of makes you hungry!

All in all, this is a good read!

Don't know why there are so many 1 ratings but Toriko is alot of fun to read. The art reminds me of "Baki" while at the same time, not entirely looking like the art of Baki. Well, whatever the case, I can't wait for more.

Surprisingly Good

When I first heard about Toriko, I wasn't so sure what to make of it. But after I read the first few chapters, it was actually quite good than I expected to be.

It has some funny dialouges, quirky characters and an original plot that has my starving for some more chapters (pun not intended).

Other than that, this is quite a good manga once you give it a chance and read it.

It's an interesting, quirky manga, but not anything spectacular. It's solid, but not great. Still, it's worth a read if you have the time.

I gave it an 8 just because I love food and everything seems so delicious. Well, of course it does.

Gourmet Hunter

Ever wonder how are Gourmet Hunters live in HunterXHunter? This manga probably can tell you how they live...well, without nen anyway.

It looks like that the harder/stronger the animal, the better the taste.
