Looks like it could be a laugh but still don't think Toriko is worthy to be mentioned in the same sentence as DBZ and One Piece, never mind have a feature like this. Where's Naruto? Where's Bleach?

The thing is that Naruto and Bleach are from another studio and another television, So no, will never exist an anime crossover with them(at least if the situation still the same).

About Toriko being worth or not is simple, it is! Is right now the second most popular anime in Toei and is the morning companion of One Piece and when DB kai return(if return) it will turn is companion too.

All of the three anime in the news title were animated by Toei Animation. Also, they have all shared the Dream 9 timeslot (it used to be Dragon Ball Kai and One Piece, then Toriko and One Piece), it is clear that Toei want Toriko to grow and become their next pillar. One Piece has had crossovers with both Dragon Ball and Toriko (3 including the double feature) in the past.

Rightswise, it would be more work for Naruto or Bleach (both done by Studio Pierrot) to be included regardless of whether you like them more. As I understand it, these studios seem to be attached to broadcasters as well which would make it more difficult.

Toriko's manga isn't too bad if you follow it. If you aren't interested in discussing Toriko's issues or following it, no pressure. Watch the crossover anyway, it probably won't do any of the three series justice.

Never mind those two.

These three really do fit well together. All three are very over the top and even at their most intense they're still a little goofy. Naruto and Bleach take themselves much more seriously. Sure, they give you stuff to laugh at, but at least lately they haven't been doing the gag stuff they used to.

Aw, that's adorable. Toriko thinks it's relevant.

I'm pretty sure Yamucha could beat Luffy and Toriko while Goku takes a nap.

Wow this looks awesomely ridiculous.

I think the real question that should be asked is who would win in an eating contest? There is no doubt in my mind that Goku trumps Toriko and Luffy in absolute power but the the title is up for grabs when it comes to eating. I'm actually leaning toward Toriko cause he actually eats to power up so he's basically a professional Laughing

Lol, how typical.

You do realize this special has nothing to do with power levels right?
It's just entertainment.
