Laputa Pan

Happy International Animation Day! Did you know, today is the day to appreciate the thing we all grew up watching: Animation! 


I’m from the country where is being well-known for anime, manga, or anything related to that pop culture field, so when people knew I’m from Japan, they start to ask about the specific animation. I’m also a huge anime fanatic and so is my dinner buddy, so this question is the trigger to take us into a huge discussion:


“What is your favorite animation?” 


*May contain amazon associate links. 

Especially if I should choose just one movie as my favorite from Studio Ghibli, well, you are asking too hard question to answer. When I was a kid, I always watch My Neighbor’s Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Laputa in the Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away…oh wait, I’m not intending to list up all the movies from Ghibli! But honestly, choosing just one is hard because every time I watch them, they give different points of view. And, they all got scenes to make us drool…I never met people didn’t feel it when watching Ghibli movies! 


Since this is International Animation Day and I’m a foodie, let’s make some easy, simple but yummy food inspired by anime!

    Your animation history is rich, with strong storytelling and visuals that engage and inspire – a style that it took longer for US animators to embrace in any way! As for that dish, a poached egg on toast is the key to life!

    Hmm…to answer your question, I’d cite two titles: Chuka Ichiban (Cooking Master Boy) and Yakitate!! Japan. Both shows were aired in the Philippines, although dubbed in Filipino.

      OMG I know these two of your fav anime!🤣 I think there are many season for Chuka Ichiban, so I’m not sure I’m keeping up to date though🤔 We Japanese always surprised anime dubbed in other languages because we almost never knew it’s popular in other countries too😊

    I am not a big anime fan but I love all of the Ghilbli movies you mentioned. I watched 4 out of the 6, and my ultimate favorite is My Neighbor Totoro. And my most ultimate favorite meal is fried egg and toast. When I was working from home, I had it every time in different versions. So simple but so comforting! 🙂
