Bento boxes, like most things Japanese, are awesome. Yummy, filling and oh-so-wide in variety, one look at your average bento box already makes you hungry.
However, for assorted reasons, there are exceptions to the rule, such as the…


Mario Box-8v

You eat mushrooms in the Mario games, not Mario himself! To anyone who grew up in the NES era and loved the Mario Brothers, eating a work of art like this would feel like sacrilege.


Angry Bird's Box-7v

After all that hoopla we’ve had over Janet Napoles and the Pork Barrel Scam, most of us have had our fill of pork by now. Stahp. Stahp it.


Madagascar Box Set-6v

I know this is the film where the line “What is a simple bite on the buttocks among friends?” was immortalized, but nobody said anything about biting each other’s faces, even among friends.


Pokemon Box-5v

Can you imagine a world where Pokemon exist in real life? This is how they would end up: as exotic bento boxes, or rare pulutan. That’s depressing, no matter how cute they are.


Totoro Box-4v

This is just too cute to eat. Everyone knows cats are untouchable on the internet and in bento boxes.


Elmo Box-3v

You’re supposed to tickle him, not chow him down! With each bite, those eyes will pierce your soul. Forever.


Wall-e Box-2v

There are many reasons why it’s sad to eat Wall-e. Being a trash compactor robot isn’t even one of them. We’re getting so many feelings just looking at those rusty eyes.


Ichi The Killer Box-1v

This is the one bento box that makes me worry it would eat me back, even if his tongue is just laying there on the side. Wouldn’t stop him now, would it?

How about you, dear reader? Do you have crazy bento box ideas to share? Post the photos below and let’s see if we can make a part two.
