I encourage culinary experimentation. Learning to appreciate different types of food instead of eating only what you're comfortable with can open up your world so much.

You can say the same of Mexican rice, when it comes right down to it), but there is absolutely no connection between being interested in Japanese food to not thinking anime and manga are pointless.
Don't bug out so much about them not liking/appreciating a hobby you have. You don't *have* to share interests with all of them. That would be creepy.

I always usually get plain fried rice every time but I've had it where they put some kind of meat in it before. Like chicken or some other kind of meat that I don't know what you call it. I don't really eat many of the beef dishes either.

When I was in Japan I learned a few tricks for onigiri, one being to salt your hands before you make one. It makes it extra tasty. Lil' sis also figured out that if you get your hands wet, burning-lava hot [S]tar[/S] rice won't stick to your hands, just to the onigiri.
If anybody would like, I could post pictures on the technique I use to make the triangle onigiri.
