Dimple Jello Dessert from Mob Psycho 100

Dimple from Mob Psycho 100 claims he doesn’t taste very good, but I beg to differ. Following up on my gluten-free Mob-themed curry from a few weeks ago, I wanted to hit hard with a Dimple dessert. The best thing I could think to represent his gelatinous, goopy form of spiritual energy was Jello. As unimpressive…

Crunchyroll #124: Slime from That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime!

Everyone told me That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime was good, and BOY were you all right. I FINALLY started watching it while working out in the morning, and I’m absolutely loving it. Rimuru is an awesome character who I love because he’s just so…chill. Like, seriously, we finally have a rational, level-headed…

Crunchyroll #118: Candy Apples Inspired by Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple

Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple is out on Crunchyroll, and you know WHAT???? Yiou have GOT to watch it. If you aren’t familiar with the series, Bungo Stray Dogs is an anime adaptation of a manga written by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Sango Harukawa.

Crunchyroll #114: How to Get the Best Gooey Cheesy Toast from Gintama

When my friend Nate Ming requested that I make “that stuff they’re eating” in Gintama episode 98, I was a little skeptical. After all, I’ve made food from Gintama before (namely Gintoki’s favorite parfait), and I sort of thought I’d covered all the good food in the show. Honestly, what other foods do people remember,…

Crunchyroll #113: Japanese-Style Thanksgiving Stuffing

First of all, sorry/not sorry for the Giorno thumbnail. This article has nothing to do with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, but I like Giorno’s hair, and also this season is great, so you should be watching it. Okay, so… Thanksgiving. The one time of year when people seriously think about cooking for the first time all…

Crunchyroll #103: Breakfast Sandwich from “Free! Eternal Summer”

Read the original post here. OR read below! A lot of people like Free! Eternal Summer, and the Free! franchise in general, for the fanservice specifically directed toward those who appreciate the finely sculpted muscles of a man’s chest. I, on the other hand, have started to watch if for a different reason: that sweet, sweet…

Crunchyroll #100: Tea and Cookies from “Gun Gale Online”

Read the original post here. OR read below. I think most people weren’t expecting Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online to be anything different from Sword Art Online, but on the whole, we’ve been really surprised! For fans of the original series, it’s more feel-good content with cute characters. For people who weren’t fans of the…

Crunchyroll #96: Fried Eggplant from “Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi”

Read the original post here. OR read below! If you haven’t been watching Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits-, I suggest you jump on that before we move in earnest into the new season of anime. To say that it’s been very inspiring to me is a bit of an understatement- I’ve been loving every…

Crunchyroll #93: Onsen Tamago from “Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi”

Read the original post here. Or read below! Onsen tamago is a dish that’s a bit confusing when first translated. It means “hot spring egg,” which you’re probably thinking is a fancy name for a special kind of egg dish, but actually, it just means that it’s an egg cooked in a hot spring. Yes,…
