    One thought on “The Manga Cookbook”

    1. This is just over all fun! The food in here are basic and cute; sometimes the food in this book can be seen in anime from time to time!Setting it in a manga/comic book way it makes it fun to read for kids and the kids at heart. You see the food and see how they put it together or cook it.

    2. A must have!Finally I can make all the things I have read about in my manga! Also interesting facts. Recommended to any otaku who likes to cook!

    3. What a fun way to learn a little about Japanese food and culture. I can't wait to make cute bento lunch boxes!

    4. This is a cute cookbook filled with tons of black & white illustrations and color photos of prepared foods. It reads like a graphic novel, with manga characters Miyuki, her boyfriend Hiroshi, and their pet Coo guiding the reader every step of the way. The book covers several categories of Japanese cooking, e.g obento, main courses, and wagashi (desserts). Noodle soup, sushi, pork cutlet, riceballs and animal-shaped sausages are some of the recipes included.In addition to the recipes, the boo [...]

    5. Japanese food and manga come together in The Manga Cookbook with recipes by Yoko Ishihara and illustrations by Chihiro Hattori. Miyuki and her adorable mascot, Coo, walk the readers through each recipe. Miyuki’s boyfriend, Hiroshi, occasionally helps out as well, but mostly by eating.Most of the recipes are easy to follow thanks to the illustrations. It also helps that there aren’t many ingredients in any of the recipes. The extra touches given to the food’s appearance are some of the funn [...]

    6. These are easy recipes simplified for Americans who might not be able to find some of the odder ingredients. Each step has images to show you what you should be doing.The problem is this wasn't proofread well. One recipe doesn't tell you when to add the sugar (you can tell by the picture thankfully) and calls the Teriyaki sauce in the ingredients list soy sauce in the cooking steps. Another doesn't mention water as an ingredient but says you need some in the recipe (thankfully with a specified a [...]

    7. This was a lot of fun to read. I also love the idea of a Manga University Culinary Institute. I found this while looking for something to help a schoolteacher friend who needed simple recipes to prepare with her lower-elementary students. Bingo! They all know manga, they've all wondered what a riceball is really like, and wanted to try them. The recipes are simple, well-explained, and the ingredients are inexpensive. The kids were thrilled that they were able to put together a real Japanese meal [...]

    8. This is a great little cookbook, not only does it have some fantastic recipes, it's fun to read since it is done manga-style. Not very many cookbooks are actually fun to read, since most of them are simply read for the information and not intended to be anything other than that. I love that the recipes are easy to follow and don't require a lot of ingredients. I read this the day I got it and already I know which things I'm going to make first. I highly recommend this for any fans of anime, mang [...]

    9. The recipes mostly look like they could be done by teens, though I didn't try any out. I liked the appetizers the best, because you could make cute looking food. I enjoyed the fact that the characters who took you through the recipes were done manga style, though the book was written in regular left to right format, rather than the manga right to left. Recommended for teens who want to know how to make the sort of food they see in manga or just want to make something other than mac and cheese fo [...]

    10. Kawaii!!!! The Manga Cookbook collects recipes for traditional Japanese foods mentioned in manga and anime, with easy to follow directions for tweens and up. While you might have to purchase some of the ingredients in an Asian/Japanese grocery, most should be available at any natural food store or co-op. Everything in the book looks simple to make and includes mini-essays and notes on the role the food has in Japanese diets. Do I need to mention it's drawn in manga?

    11. This book gives basic starter recipes for Japanese cooking. It goes through the process step-by-step, which is great for beginners and teens.The humor is a bit dry and/or overdone for manga style, but then, it's a cookbook and serves that purpose.Gives a bunch of creative yet simple bento ideas to try out which really gets the ball rolling and shows the reader how to pack the lunch as well!

    12. 10 Second ReviewSo, you want to learn to cook but hate those stuffy ‘Martha’ books?Maybe you want to eat what your manga heroes eat?Well, this book might fit the bill.The Manga Cookbook includes recipes for Udun, Dango, Gyudon and even Japanese pizza!Everything is presented in a manga style that is easy to read and easy to follow.NotesLearn to use chop sticks!Learning CurveLow: Good for new readers

    13. Took a glance through this out of curiosity. Appears to be a friendly intro to Japanese cooking and cuisine. Parental guidance will be necessary for several recipes, including understanding some of the instructions which were vague to me. But color pictures of the recipes will help kids figure out what stuff is supposed to look like.

    14. Very kawaii! Simple but yummy Japanese cookbook in a form of a manga. I love the bento box instructions. I thought the how-to on chopsticks was pretty useful to have for those whom need it ( I don't I'm half Chinese & would get rapped on the hand with chopsticks if I didn't use the properly when little.)

    15. Somewhere between Cup Noodle and sushi are the regular meals that Japanese people eat. I think this book touches upon the more popular recipes with the emphasis being what to make for your bento/lunch box. The instructions look pretty easy-I haven't attempted any yet.I also enjoyed the cultural notes that are included with some of the recipes.

    16. This cookbook is super cute and most of the recipes are pretty good to eat. I've tried out gyudon, which I love, tamagoyaki, and karaage. And I'm thinking about trying out the soboro bento and the okonomiyaki next. All in all, this is a good cookbook to start out with if you want to know about Japanese food and bentos.

    17. Pretty amusing and about what you would expect. Not the best book if you are looking for real complex recipes but a nice illustrated guide for some basic Japanese cooking.Some of the dishes are quite cute.

    18. A surprisingly easy-to-use japanese cookbook. Fully-illustrated, with color pictures. Ignore the comic gimmick if you must. Recipes are simple, with few ingredients necessary for most. Liked the bento-box ideas!

    19. The dango recipe has a mistype that leads to confusion it says 3/4 cups of (specific type of flour) what it actually means is 3 to 4 cups. This led to some wasted ingredients. But otherwise everything else is great! The dango, when it has the right amount of flour, come out deliciously!

    20. A cute little cookbook, which should appeal to manga/anime fans who want to make onigiri, takoyaki sausage wieners, and all those other foods commonly seen in manga/anime. Haven't tried any of the recipes, but the difficulty of recipes varies, so this would probably be fine for beginner cooks.

    21. I tried the tonkatsu (otherwise known as pork cutlet), and it basically tasted like pork chops. In one sense, it's good since the book uses simple ingredients and is easy to follow. It's just not the best book to go to find dishes with a lot of flavor.

    22. This manga cookbook is full of fun and easy to make recipes. The food listed is pretty common and can be considered classics, I did wish there was more variety and more food. Still a great resource for starting!

    23. I love this book, it gives you picture steps, that makes it so easy to cook. Even though, it doesn't give you a lot of recipes, the recipes the have are good and it is good if you want to start cooking Japanese food!

    24. This book combines two of my obsessions - manga and cooking. If you have ever wondered how to make usagi ringo (rabbit apples) or naruto rolls, this book will show you how. You can even make tomodachi out of your tamago! Cute ne (but not for serious cooks :P )

    25. I really did like this little cookbook! Though, I expected more from it than what I got. I can't wait to make some of these though, and my little brother really wants me to perfect a few of these recipes so I can teach them to him!

    26. Fun way to learn to make some of those things that you see characters eating in anime. Now, when cartoon food makes me hungry, at least I will know what it is and how to make some for myself.

    27. good example of how to use manga in non-fictionme of the pages in the version I just read were ripped out,waaaah!
