1st Toriko Feature Film's Full Trailer Streamed
The Cinema Today website began streaming the full trailer for the upcoming Gekijō-ban Toriko Bishokushin no Special Menu film on Tuesday. The trailer features the theme song "Gōshoku My Way!!" by Akira Kushida. The film's official website began streaming the same trailer on April 20.
The ongoing television series follows the title character Toriko, a "bishokuya" (gourmet food provider) who travels the world to hunt down the strange animals and plants needed for the finest cuisine dishes. The movie will deal with Acacia the Bishokushin ("Gourmet God") and the secret special menu that lies dormant on a fabled island. Toriko also deciphers the mystery of the ruins there. The "4 Heavenly King Bishokuya" must protect the island and face off against a new foe, the former Bishokukai brass Girimu.
Gekijō-ban Toriko Bishokushin no Special Menu will open in Japanese theaters on July 27. Advance tickets are on sale with two sets of actual spices seen in Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro's original manga, along with cards for people reserving seats online.
The manga already inspired Toriko 3D: Kaimaku Gourmet Adventure!!, a 3D animated film short that opened with the One Piece 3D: Mugiwara Chase film in 2011. Funimation has been streaming the series as it airs in Japan since its premiere last year and will release the third DVD set on March 19.
