Eating in just got way more exciting


The intense dine-in experience

Bored of the same old plates with little floral and checkered borders at home? Thanks to the folks at The Mary Sue, I've found a delightful otaku approved method to spruce up your meals. Check out the gallery for images of mangazara, or manga plates, sold by a Japanese store called Comicalu.

All of the plates have a distinct personality and the images are just hilarious. I don't know if I'd be able to choose just one, come to think of it. Oh yes, I even find the charm in a plate with shoujo sparkles.

These plates, designed by Mika Tsutai, aren't totally new. I'm just wondering why the closest I can find of these on sale (outside of Japan, that is) after some basic searching on familiar sites like Amazon and J-List is this Attack on Titan manga plate. Lucky for you all, I dug a little deeper and found them listed at Bento and Co. They're a little pricey, but the option's there.
