If you have ever lived in Japan for a short period, or watched any anime that features high-school life, the concept of Bento (or lunchboxes) would not be foreign at all.
And the bento is not simply a throw-away lunch pack, but contains some of the most creative food artistry I have ever seen.
Case in point, this Totoro Bento looks gorgeous, and absolutely yummylicious. (And it took the poor mother 2 hours to put together)
Awesome, isn’t it. This just take the cake for the most beautiful and realistic anime bento.
And if you want more pictures of anime bento, the Japanese anime magazine Animage occasionally features an anime bento based on a major anime of the season.
Some of them are really wild and creative and I’ll scan in some to show you guys for sure.
In the meantime, if anyone you have attempted to make any anime bento, do share the results with me.
