"Arrival on Gourmet Island! The Gourmet Hunter Toriko Appears!" is the 1st episode of the Toriko anime. It is a collaboration special between Toriko and fellow Shonen Jump manga One Piece. The second part of this episode is the 492nd episode of the One Piece anime.
Toriko and Luffy meet for the first time on a food filled island and decide to team up to get their hands on the legendary ingredient and taste its wonder. After eating a Hungry-la Bird that they captured, Nami and Komatsu are kidnapped by the Cocoalas and now the group must do all they can to save them.
As Luffy and his crew were running low on food supplies, they discovered an island known as the Hungry-la Island. As Luffy, Nami, Sanji and Chopper explore the island, they encounter Toriko travelling with Komatsu. Toriko initially mistook Chopper as potential food and was about to eat him. After encountering some Roasted Boars and clearing up their misunderstandings, the two groups search for a large bird which Toriko and Luffy manage to beat. As they spend the night sampling their spoils, Nami and Komatsu are kidnapped by a group of Cocoalas. As the gang head towards a mountain where a delicious fruit is said to exist and where the Cocoalas have taken Nami and Komatsu, the gang end up against a fierce group of lions, but are aided by Toriko's allies, Coco and Sunny. They later find Nami and Komatsu being held captive by a giant Cocoala and work together to defeat it. Afterwards, an eruption occurs, revealing the entire island to be one giant dessert. After Luffy and crew gather the provisions they need, they set off on their journey as Toriko continues his search for his Full Course menu.
- Toriko succeeded the Sunday morning timeslot of Dragon Ball Kai.
- This episode differs considerably from the manga crossover to name a few changes, unlike the manga crossover, this features the Straw Hats before the timeskip. Also, instead of Luffy meeting Toriko by himself, he is with Nami, Sanji, and Chopper, and the rest of the crew didn't meet Toriko. In the manga version however, Toriko and Komatsu have already recognized Luffy.
- This was also shown as episode 492 in the One Piece anime series.
