like, you can't just call it LUNCH BOX. do a google image search of "bento". those aren't generic lunches in boxes, they're a very definite style.

no offense but you guys seem like you're eating "bento box" just for the sake of doing it. like you guys are just eating random foods thrown into a box, what does "bento" have to do with anything? it just seems like some kind of attention thing. also never say kawaii, not even ironically. that post made me unreasonably irritated.

shut up dude

i think his point is that they are using it as a fancy divided plate, rather than transporting it somewhere and eating it there. in these cases it's mostly portion control, aesthetics, and reinforcing the proportions of a balanced meal, basically. also i'm not super familiar with the food people usually put in them, but they don't seem too far afield. can't help you w/ kawaii. anyone here into tiffin tins? i like the ones with idli pockets

i can understand how a bento box is useful but see what I like to do is unblock my gullet and drop huge things into it.

goldenratio your irritation isn't alien to me, because of course there's a level of something-ism (i dunno i was gonna say cultural fetishism but it is too loaded since i mean it neutrally) to having a bento box but i don't know if it is a negative trait. i could even see me getting one, someday. the organisation and neatness appeals to a terminal self-suspicious slacker like me.

this is basically it, it's about presentation and portion control (plus when i start work i WILL be taking it with me places, but atm i don't need to).  but no his point was that we're attention seeking weeaboos.

i think it was just the say she kept saying BENTO over and over again. i don't care if people have lunchboxes. I have a lunch bag but for lunch i just eat a sandwich so a bento box is a bit overkill for me but it was the "cultural fetishism" that was bothering me I suppose. I mean I know it's totally irrelevant and nobody really cares, but it's just so OTAKU and i hate that. just rubbed me the wrong way.

like, you can't just call it LUNCH BOX.

I don't get that. why can't you call it a lunch box, isn't that what it is? i mean isn't that what you said, bento box is just a "lunch box" but you can't call it a lunch box? calling it BENTO over and over again reeks of LOOK AT HOW UNIQUE I AM SO KAWAII. I mean this is mkk we're talking about, one of the people who is such an obvious attention whore that defending her for not being one seems ridiculous to me.
yes coulombs are "germaine", did you learn that word at talk like a dick school?

also wow way to act like mkk is the only one doing this when i've got a bento box and have posted it here and call it a bento box and HZ is shortly getting one and doing the same thing

bento boxes are a thing dude.  making bentos is a thing.  it's pretty much a HOBBY.  that's what they're called.  there's certain aspects of it that are different than just puttin your lunch box together before you head off to school or whatever.  sorry that you're mad that we're calling something what it is.  check out http://justbento.com if you're confused or somethin but lol way to just abruptly go after mkk for literally no reason.

you did just call mkk an attention whore which was completely out of order. i think aggression in response to that is completely reasonable to expect??

you literally just asked me why i'm the one who's mad when you're the one being a dick.

of course YOU'RE not mad about YOU being a dick.  that would make no sense.

maybe it's just a hobby I "don't get". no need to get mad, i just don't understand it, not a big deal. why do you even care?


if you think my original post was "being a dick" (I definitely was a dick after that but not at first) then what the hell. I know you've been on the internet at least as long as me how can you be so offended by a relatively innocuous statement even when I specifically say that my irritation was "unreasonable". I know it was stupid, I said that.

i care because you come in and suddenly declare us attention whore weeaboos (in your first post, so don't act like you escalated this later) and call mkk a bunch more dumb shit after being called out on it.  stop acting like this is some problem on my end.  you didn't ask "what's all this bento stuff about i don't understand it" you post a ton of condescending offensive garbage then expect us to be totally cool with it because hey, it's the internet
