Sarah Chen and I made rice balls! They’re called onigiri (おにぎり) in Japanese. There are more than one type of onigiri, and we made triangular plastic-wrapped onigiri. Sarah says they’re pretty much store-bought versions of onigiri, although the only parts that were store-bought were the plastic mold and the plastic/seaweed. Her dad cooked the salmon, shrimp, and sticky rice, and we used dried pork bits.
And this is how a white person reacts when a camera is watching them eat onigiri for the first time (yes, that would be me):
This is what Sakurakouji Sakura (from the anime Code:Breaker) looks like as she eats onigiri (although it’s not the same type of onigiri):
I’ve seen characters in animes eat onigiri so often that it almost seemed unreal to me, so you can imagine my immense excitement when I finally got to eat one, albeit a “store-bought” one.
