Toriko vs Luffy vs Goku

Well well, watch it quick before Youtube takes it down! .

Anyway, its nice to watch this after all this while, i really missed Toriko anime. Also, when i was rewatching this, i realised something, at least for this special collaboration episode, the world of One piece, Dragonball Z and Toriko is in the same planet!. Which is kinda weird if you ask me, given how dystopia Dragonball is and the differences in technology and lore is in each anime. But who’s is to question anime logic?

Toriko why you ends T_T

Toriko

Wanted to do this a long time ago (when toriko anime ended) but never really got into it, so i thought i should do it now. Anyway, I am a big shonen fan, from Dragonball Z, naruto, bleach, one piece and many many others, must have been more than a decade T_T yes being 27 years old now, i feel fucking old.

Toriko is kinda like an old school anime, where they have a lot of exploration going on in the anime and muscles that drives doctors crazy, which is really wonderful because many shonen anime kinda lacks that imo. The anime version has been very faithful in following the manga story which i also read concurrently BUT they decided that they will alter the ending because the anime has in theory overshot the manga…… I will not spoil it for you but that has a lot of serious implications ! In short, i think Toriko anime is not worth watching at all with that ending. Also, with that anime ending, they have open up another potential, the potential to have their own storyline. This mean a lot of half arse story will happen. They have fillers in between which i think is fine since this is a kids show but the fillers are mostly quite fucking bad. With that logic, they probably cannot do a proper storyline if they can fuck up fillers. Fucking fillers.

So tl;dr, read the manga (ZETTAI!!!!) and watch the anime if you have time.

Food , rubber and POWER LEVEL OVER 9000!

This is an awesome team up!!! , you have Toriko, Goku and Luffy all in one team helping and battling each other. Love how comical the Toriko x One piece x Dragonball crossover was. It also kinda “answers” the question of, if these 3 series were to collide, wouldn’t Goku naturally overpower all of them ? Turns out, it ain’t so true. Not to give out too many spoilers but ,

I did realise something, all 3 series have characters with crazy appetite ! Come to think of it, Goku can eat a few dinosaurs in one go, so can Luffy and of course Toriko. Not to mention the formula of these 3 series is pretty much the same. The main characters start off relatively powerful but require power up as the series progress because the enemies seems to be getting more insanely OPed as the series goes on, to a point where their power level do not make anymore sense.

But having said that, all 3 series also have a central theme , Dragonball being gathering all the dragonballs to make a wish, One piece being finding the one piece treasure and Toriko being finding “God”, aka the one food that taste so heavenly, it is literally the definition of a “God”.

Don’t know what i am trying to talk about here though.. Anyway, i highly recommend watching Toriko if you are looking for a shounen that is comical and “serious”. The manga is progressing really well but i fear the manga might get diluted if they decided to drag on for too long.

Toriko : still awesome weekly

Just a little update and also realization that I haven been watching Toriko on a almost weekly basis since since 2011. HOW TIME FLIES. FUCK. Here’s to more Toriko~ Also, the plan to blog about Toriko somehow isn’t really happening.. ahahha

My winter anime watch list

Kinda late into this but i guess Late is better than none. So the first few episodes of winter is out. And after watching them, I can safely say this are the ones that i will be watching.

  • Aquarion Evol
  • Prince of Tennis II
  • Thermea Romae

And also

  • Toriko
  • Chihayafuru

Well to begin off, let’s talk about those animes. Firstly, Aquarion Evol…

The main drive watching Evol was purely nostalgic reasons. I loved the first aquarion and normally anime is kinda awkward by nature to watch it with loud volume because of the way they moan. Which to the untrained ears will sound like porn. Aquarion takes awkwardness up to a whole new level ! Which them having orgasms during fusion. The begining of Evol brought back the super awkward feeling when the main character.. can’t remember his name, he looks like Apollo from the previous series. Anyway he has the flying and other unknown powers in his list of weapons. But i got a feeling the other crew will mature their powers further throughout the series, dwarfing the main character powers for a while.

Of course like the previous series, the main character will save the day in the end. I mean come on, are you expecting something else different ? Although! It will be awesome if the enemy they are fighting turns out to the saviour instead!

Prince of tennis II or New prince of tennis, whichever way you want to call it. I personally did not watched the previous prince of tennis. I watched the first arc and got bored of it. Tennis isn’t really that exciting, at least not for me anyway. The only reason I am watching this season is because of the background. Basically Japan is trying to make a super elite tennis player or something, they rounded up all the characters in the previous and threw them into a mix of high schoolers. So you have the middle school boys that you all know plus some random high schoolers. AND THEY ARE ALL ELITES. WOOHOO!

They are still trying to narrow down the players in the team but it will all be elites fighting! So i reckon this season of prince of tennis will be more exciting than anything. But of course if you are talking about Sports anime in general, NOTHING and i stressed, Nothing beats Slam Dunk. Anyway, next up Thermea Romae or rather shameless plugs for the upcoming movie of the same title.

I love the flash animation!! It gives the studio more time to actually think of dialogue instead ! I mean come on, if you are doing an anime about on-sen AND roman bath houses, the puns and jokes are limitless! I think. But sadly the anime has ended. But still!! I enjoyed it very much.

Of course there’s the still on going Chihayafuru and Toriko. I really should get back and start blogging about toriko again. I mean, this anime really need to have more love given to it!! Also this is like the only food-related anime as well. 😦 there aren’t many food related anime that not only entertains but the food ideas sounds fucking awesome. Even if it doesn’t exists. Thats it. I have to start blogging more often again. I was sort of on the ball for a while then Fallout 3 just took over my life. And also general procrastinating as always. Until then, have a good time.
