Man, that reporter chick is so annoying... It kinda ruins the episodes for me... Anyway, here's episode 16.
And crying after eating meat... Well, that's kinda... weird.
I haven't read all the posts here so sorry if this question has been asked, but why is the Toriko anime so different than the manga? Not saying it's completely different but when compared to like Naruto, Bleach, etc. it just seems like they went out of their way to make it different. I mean, why is that reporter chick even there?
I guess I can understand removing the alcohol related scenes though...
First they censor, then they add the stupid chick, and then the voice of that creepy guy at the beginning, and then Toriko's voice when eating Jewel Meat as if he's having orgasm (I bet he's the kind of guy who would cry after sex). The lack of " impression ", I don't know, the fights in the manga were more impressive, they left an impact on me.
And finally, censorship, and the chick.
Good thing = Sunny, Coco, Terry, I like them in the anime.
Yeah with the amount they censor it's gonna be a really watered down version of the Ice Hell arc; Toriko losing his arm, basically anything Tommyrod does to anybody is going to be severely censored. It's depressing really, the way the anime is now does nothing good for the manga in terms of representation and style.
And the fact they added a filler character (who is tuuuuuuuuurrable by the way) that makes a cameo in the manga, which I think technically makes her existence canon.... ugh
They honestly aren't doing themselves any favors with the choices they're making, and it sucks because Toriko is fucking awesome.

Started watching the anime and i'm kind of confused as to why the hell did they add the reporter. This is the one thing I hate when the anime adds a character on its own, the reporter was only shown in the manga for a small part, but now in the anime she is all over the place.

^Budget has nothing to do with it. They don't show even a drop of blood, and Toriko's knife doesn't even cut. They're obviously aiming the anime at little kids, especially with the dumb toys of the Gourmet Spicer and candies shaped like the Galala Croc, etc.
Just watched the RAW of the new episode. Grinpatch's voice is.....weird. Really hope they get rid of the censoring in the future......the Toriko manga is too brutal to be censored.
2 questions: Has the Toriko anime been releases on DVD/Bluray yet? And if so, did it sell well?
