Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!

Toriko and One Piece are ridiculously shounen action-comedy romps set on the sea/small islands with over-the-top stories and absurd characters/animals.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Both are these are hilarious action shounen titles about adventurers traveling to acomplish a special goal. They share the same humor style mixed in with similar shonen action. The main characters, Luffy and Toriko, are also very similar. Fans of one should check out the other.

Both series share a carefree feel and an insatiable protagonist. They go so well together that even the producers have made crossover episodes,

I like Toriko WAY more than Jotaro, but both involve seriously manly men who do manly things. Jotaro does police-type work, while Toriko hunts down delicious morsels. Both will have you laughing heartily.

While this recommendation might seem like a strange one at first, both Toriko and DMC are relentlessly funny oddballs in the comedy genre. They are anything but refined, and don't hold back with their jokes in the least (FORK and KNIFE and the manager come to mind). If you liked one of these shows for their wacky sense of humor, don't miss out on the other!

Riding Bean

So much testosterone between these two titles, you could grow a full beard on a baby.

Toriko is more slapstick comedy, Riding Bean is more to do with fast cars, but both have a male lead that is too large for the show, almost bursting from the confines of the one shot episode. 

If you liked one, for the burliness, you should like the other.
