My youngest daughter was so excited when this cookbook arrived at our door, as she a huge Anime fan, especially Demon Slayer and Studio Ghibi movies.  She grabbed the book and started to go through the index in the back of the book to see which shows and popular Anime movies were included in this dessert cookbook. Her eyes lit up as she read through the list and saw many of the shows and movies she enjoyed included. Then, she started flipping through the pages to look at the desserts, before going back and flagging all the recipes she wanted to make and try.  By the time she was done flagging recipes, she had almost all 60+ recipes flagged.  The fun part came, though, when she started to bake up these delectable treats for us all to enjoy. We have been enjoying banana milk (my personal favorite), melon pan ice cream sando (sandwiches), don-don donuts, and even Japanese-style hotcakes.  Everything she has made so far is so delicious! She is having a blast making all these tasty treats, and learning how to cook up these Japanese treats based on some of her favorite Anime shows and movies.

If you have an Anime fan in your life who loves to bakes, or is always looking to try out different Japanese sweets and treats, then I highly recommend you check out the "Oishisou!! The Ultimate Anime Dessert Cookbook.  It would make for the perfect holiday gift, too!
