"All I know is that fear has got to go
This time around"
this time around by hanson
I have finally seen all 147 episodes of the anime toriko. It seems like the idea is teamwork and family/love/compassion- in an effort to secure a next generation of protectors who will not fall to greed or pride. they will fight for the chance to experience victory and glory as a team, because all glory is better when you share.
Yes in the show it's all about food, the common phase "we will sit at a table together!" or "we will eat the god ingredient together."- but the idea is there- they will have glory ads a team, unlike what happened to the previous heroes.
Of the historical/original team -one who would become evil, one would become a nomad, and one who would become the president; with a dream of his own team.
The president Ichiryu, loved his team as his children, and he raised them in a culture of family and teamwork even when their very different personalities started to emerge. everyone had more to learn, everyone could always be better- and when the time came, they would need to work together or fail.
