Now this is more like it! After watching the recent Hunter X Hunter movie I might've forgotten for a moment how awesome anime movies can actually be. Toriko is an awesome series, every episode of it - but the movies, they are a blast past that, and considering the series is over (for now at least) this was a blast from the past as well!
The plot is this: Toriko heads off with Komatsu and that pilot guy to find one of Acacia's secret ingredients, in a special biotope hidden within the 'Hungry Triangle'. Kinda like the Bermuda Triangle you dig? It's an area surrounded by a huge hurricane, with giant fish swimming in the wind, eying them with red eyes, and the biotope itself is smack in the middle of it.
Right about the same time our main characters are making their way here, another character going by the name of Grim leaves the Bishokukai also in search of this certain ingredient, and ultimately with plans on conquering the world and all ingredients in it. The Bishokukai go after him. Toriko confronts him yet realizes quickly that he doesn't have a chance against this incredibly powerful (and awesome - at this point) dude. The rest of the Heavenly Kings join up shortly and give it a go, one after another - as is the tradition, but they are equally helpless. Most of the other noteworthy characters make an appearance in this movie too, along with an army of GT robots (the fight with them doesn't quite get as much attention as it could have... but it's a movie after all, it goes to show there's no filler here!), and a battle of grand portions and proportions begins!
There's a search for ingredients involved as well, and of course there is a message, some pretty intense battles and power-ups and you know the dealeo, some cliches and some nonsense, but it's great, it's spicy, it's hot, it's good. It's awesome! You want some? Don't wait! Go thaw some today! So you can say you saw some when you wake at dawn some day. Yeah.
