Added DiffLines:

* SuggestiveCollision: After Sorawo and Toriko tumble out of the elevator in Episode 3, they land with Sorawo on top of Toriko-- and if you look closely, Sorawo's head is level with Toriko's chest. This is a downplayed example though, because the shot happens at a distance and because Sorawo gets up pretty quick and is more focused on chewing out Toriko for messing with the "Elevator Lady."

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneLovesBlondes: One of the first things Sorawo notices about Toriko is her long, beautiful blonde hair, and as much as [[{{Tsundere}} she hates to admit]] it she cares deeply for Toriko. According to Sorawo, Toriko is also breathtakingly gorgeous and often goes on tangents about how pretty she is.

Added DiffLines:

* EatingTheEyeCandy: Sorawo describes Toriko as extraordinarily beautiful, and gets lost in thought over her looks several times in the novels.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttractiveness: Sorawo really, really, ''really'' thinks Toriko is pretty. The novel dedicates a ''lot'' of time to Sorawo's inner thoughts about Toriko's looks.

Added DiffLines:

* MarkOfTheSupernatural: Sorawo's and Toriko's encounter with the kunekune leaves their bodies permanently altered. After Sorawo looks at the kunekune long enough to percieve its true form (and almost loses her mind in the process), [[MismatchedEyes her right eye turns a vivid shade of blue]] and [[MagicalEye gains the ability to perceive the true form of all Otherside phenomenon.]] Toriko, who pulled off the strange growths that appeared on Sorawo's face, ends up having her left hand gradually turn completely transparent, gaining the ability to physically interact with Otherside phenomenon. Combining their abilities gives them a fighting chance against all the strange threats from the Otherside.


* MissingReflection: The mirror cube from kunekune reflects everything like a normal mirror ''except'' humans.

to:

* MissingReflection: The mirror cube Toriko obtains from defeating the kunekune reflects turns out to reflect everything like a normal mirror ''except'' humans.humans. Toriko jokingly suggests that the cube works like this because Sorawo, who perceived the kunekune and allowed Toriko to kill it, is a misanthrope. Sorawo isn't amused.

Added DiffLines:

* SleepsInTheNude: After their wild night in Okinawa, Sorawo tries getting Toriko out of bed only to discover she's naked. It turns out Toriko sleeps in the buff "when she feels like it." Sorawo, who's already a bit shy to begin with, is immensely flustered by the fact that she shared a bed with her naked friend.


* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Generally this is downplayed since there's entrance that allows people to go between worlds, but sometimes people can enter the Otherside without warning and has no idea where the exit would be. An example is a group of US Marines stationed in Okinawa that was transported to the Otherside while training in the mountain, and in the same chapter the marines are introduced, the tavern that Sorawo and Toriko were eating at suddenly sent them over without any warning.

It was the third time that Sorawo Kamikoshi crossed the door she found into the mysterious, unearthly place she dubbed the "Otherside," and the first time she planned to explore beyond just the immediate surroundings. One encounter with an eldritch creature later, and she's facing the humiliating prospect of drowning in a few centimeters of water... until a woman appears. Toriko Nishina is outrageously beautiful, seemingly fearless, and, frankly, a bit of an oddball, but she's able to save Sorawo, both from her "lie-down bath of death" and from an unknowable creature straight out of an urban legend. After a little bit of persuasion (and a promise of cash for her trouble), Sorawo agrees to accompany Toriko on her artifact-hunting expeditions in the Otherside. However, cash isn't Toriko's primary motivation: she's trying to find her friend and mentor who's missing in the Otherside...

* CuteMonsterGirl: In Episode 2 the girls encounter "Lady Hasshaku," a figure from an urban legend who, despite being inhumanly tall, is otherwise a normal-looking woman with long flowing black hair. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope At least, she's "normal-looking" until you get a good look at her face...]]]]
