The Manga Cookbook Paperback – 15 August 2007
Readers are guided through the cookbook by three cartoon characters: a young girl, Miyuki, who calls herself the kitchen sensei; Hiroshi, her boyfriend who likes to eat; and the feline-like mascot, Coo, identified as the book's culinary mastermind. In addition to recipes, more information about many of the dishes and ingredients are presented through Miyuki's notes. --San Francisco Chronicle
After many of the recipes is additional information, often quite fascinating, about the dishes and ingredients. You will learn plenty of Japanese culinary terms as well as elements of Japanese culture. --Richard Auffrey, The Passionate Foodie,
A "Top 10 Popular Paperbacks" selection for 2011 --American Library Association

Personally though, the sweet omelette wasn't my thing, and the miso soup I made tasted... not very good, to be honest. My dango turned out very strange, though this might be because the ingredients were a bit confusing (as in, is this flour from my import store the flour required to make these?). They might be usable with a few adjustments to the ingredients, but in my book, this book wasn't a huge success and came with some disappointments.
It does however have some cute bento tricks, and tells you how to make pretty cute onigiri, and for beginners, how to cook rice properly.
Ok This book requires the use of the (somewhat hidden function) zoom to read as the font resize options do nothing.
After that its quite a nice book with somewhat simple instruction that even a 31 year old cookaphobic like me can understand.
I bought it used, so it had some library wear and tear, pages falling out etc, hence 4 stars, but it did not impede on the quality
Shipping was fast given it came from America, so all in all very happy! :)
