This is a fantastic little cookbook for anyone who wants to learn how to make all the little snacks and treats we see in our favorite anime and manga. ANOTHER NICE THING, this book is for beginers at cooking. + Pink +

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.
