Moyashimon has a special place in my hard drive. I promised myself to keep several copies of the initial series across every hard drive I buy or own. Thankfully, none of them have ever been corrupted. At the same time, I’m happy that BSS has released a batch torrent not too long ago containing the BD rips. The quality is great, and looks nice on a 59 inch plasma TV. I’m currently re-watching it while I’m waiting for more episodes of Moyashimon Returns. Right in the first episode, I laughed at the kiviak scene with Professor Itsuki.
Then I got curious about kiviak, and learned that it was in the third episode of Human Planet, a BBC documentary. Now I’m super curious to try and taste it, since the documentary said it’s like intense Gorgonzola cheese. I’d probably have to travel to Greenland to try this Inuit dish however. I doubt anyone serves it down here in California.
I really appreciate details in anime like how kiviak was in Moyashimon. It’s something that’s in real life, and fortunately for us, it’s often food. Food anime exempt, of course. Mentioning one would be cheating. Then again, that didn’t stop me from trying that rice cooker bread that was shown in Yakitate!! Japan.
Come on anime industry, someone license Moyashimon already!
