I am a huge fan of anime. It's never been a secret, though I haven't made much mention of it lately. Here it is, then. One of my absolute favorite anime is Trigun. I have loved it for years and still do. A-chan is a fan of Vash as well, though she hasn't seen all of Trigun - only the first part which is lighter and silly. It was so exciting to immortalize one of my fav characters in eggsheet, nori and cheese. I feel as though this bento took much more prep work than other kyaraben. Five egg sheets were cooked the night before and stored in the fridge. And you should have seen the mess I made of my kitchen over this one!
In the bento: Jasmine rice as a background, carrot and nori stars, fried tofu, checkered apple, grapes, steamed broccoli and black olives.
Vash was made on a platform of provolone cheese. His hair, face and donut were cut from egg sheet while his distinctive red coat was cut from a red pepper. All the black details were cut from nori. The letters on the sign for his name were cut from cucumber peel. Kuroneko-sama is provolone and nori with cucumber eyes. He's slightly a crazy kitty in the anime so I'm not over worried about how crazy he looks in the bento.
Tomorrow we head up to Anime Weekend Atlanta for a day's immersion in anime, manga and cosplay!
