For the past five years, I've attended Anime Weekend Atlanta and the past two times, I have attended bento box panels hosted by BENTO ANARCHY. I always leave inspired to be a bento making machine. Last year, I tried making large, elaborate and cute bentos because that was all. My efforts quickly failed. I lacked the time, skill, and tools which lead only to frustration.
This year, I am determined to take up my bento torch again and share my journey with others in hopes that it pushes me to stay true.
Unlike the character bentos that you see everywhere, these will be designed for an adult, may not always follow the bento color rules, and will be more practical than pretty.
Let the adventure begin!
