Obake no Q-tarō bento

Obake no Q-tarō bento

I remember watching Japanese animations with my sister when I was small. They weren’t normally broadcasted on tv but we watched recorded tapes my dad borrowed from a friend that could have access to Japanese tv programs.

At that time, satellite and cable Tvs were way out of reality and my parents couldn’t watch any Japanese tv show if not in that way.

So, my sister and I  would put the (Sony) Betamax on (wow! Does anyone remember that?) and watch Doraemon, Obake no Q-tarō, Gegege no kitaro (ゲゲゲの鬼太郎) and Sazae-san, among others.

Obake no Q-tarō is originally a manga, made by same creators of  Doraemon (Fujiko Fujio). Obake means some sort of “apparition”, can take any form, like a ghost for example.

This bento was actually made in the same day of the “Boos” bentos I posted yesterday. I was thinking about Halloween, boos, ghosts and Q-tarō came to my mind. I think he is so cute and thought he deserved a bento form and a separate post ^_^.

Contents of the bento (originally made to me but eaten by hubs!):  rice, tamagoyaki, cherry tomatoes, edamame, steamed romaine broccoli with sesame oil dressing, pan fried MSG free sausages and a cup of cucumber and carrots asazuke. Q-tarō made with rice, turkey ham, nori and cooked carrot.

    Super nicely done, with sweet memory behind it! I remember Betamax, of course my dad would stand behind Sony no matter what. You’re right, a separate post with closeup is perfect. Better to focus on fine details :o)
