    A great little book

    As the title says, it's a great book for those who want to learn how to make food from Japanese anime and manga. It gives you pictures with every step and even tells you where to find some hard to find ingredients. My one complaint is that it's a bit hard to read on my SimpleTouch due to size. Five stars.
