Big House grub and trippin'

I recently finished taking notes on the Fanfare release of Doing Time by Kazuichi Hanawa. This manga is an account of the three years he spent in prison for illegal firearms possession and deals with the day to day tedium of prison life there is a great deal of material on the food served.

I am also planning a two week trip to Tokyo in October. One of my goals is to try as many different Japanese foods there as I can, especially foods I cannot get here in the US. For this reason I will be adding a pile of new food entries to the Anime Companion Supplement over the next two months starting with many of the items mentioned in Doing Time. An easy way to combine the labor of two projects.
