First ‘Toriko’ Anime Feature Gets Japanese BD/DVD Release Set

2 min read

Toriko MovieWith the popularity of the TV series and the manga it was no surprise that Toriko would go to the next level with a feature length film, which was called Gekijō-ban Toriko Bishokushin no Special Menu. The feature made its debut in theaters back on July 27th, 2013 and now it’s getting its home video release scheduled. The feature will get separate Blu-ray and DVD releases on December 6th, 2013 priced at 5040 yen and 3990 yen respectively. No first press extras have been listed as of this time nor are there any on-disc extras listed either.

The film made nearly $2 million US during its theatrical run in Japan on 179 screens.

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!
