Now let's get this playin'. Get ready and listen close for a bosso nova.


Ponkochi is a professional Gourmet DJ whose occupation requires him to play music that matches with certain ingredients and dishes, as every dish has a certain BGM that suits its taste and when a proper session is performed it creates the perfect ambiance. His fee for performing costs 2,000,000 yen per hour.


He is a tall pale-skinned young man wearing a black full body jumpsuit with yellow lines along with white gloves and black shoes with yellow soles. He has spiky purple hair which he keeps covered with what appears to be a dark gray beanie or bucket hat with a white rim that has musical notes written on it. He has two purple music note tattoos over his eyes and wears dark sunglasses with gold rims.

Ponkochi is a suave and "hip" man who thinks highly of his taste in music. He takes his job seriously while maintaining a "cool" and relaxed air around his customers. He always speaks in a rapper while using the words "yo yo" or speaking in a musical tone. He appears to be easily offended if his music is mocked.


Shining Gourami ArcEdit

He was hired by Sunny to perform a food and music session for him which he enjoyed to the fullest, however Toriko and Komatsu found his presence annoying and uncomfortable. He has a very full schedule and is booked for months.

Cooking Festival ArcEdit

He is seen again going to the Cooking Festival.

AIR ArcEdit

A year and a half later, he was one of the many people who went to the World Kitchen to say their goodbyes to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set off to Gourmet World.
