Toriko is continuing to enjoy a good bit of popularity as the manga rolls along as there are twenty-three volumes out in Japan now and almost a hundred episodes that have aired and been near-simulcast with FUNimation. While there was a short movie out in 2011 attached to One Piece, a new feature is due out this summer called Gekijō-ban Toriko Bishokushin no Special Menu. Set for a July 27th release, the first teaser promo for it has been released via the official site over the weekend and it’ll make Toriko fans grin in delight.
Series Concept: 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!
