まず始めに、みなさんは朝自分で自分の弁当を作れますか。私はできません。朝自分で作っている時間はありません。何人かの友達は自分で作ってきています。尊敬します。しかし、幼稚園や高校時代は弁当を持っていかなければならなかったですよね?小さいときは、お母さんかお父さんが作っていたに違いありません。最近、その両親たち、特に若いお母さんの間でキャラ弁が流行っています。キャラ弁とは、アニメのキャラクターなどを食材でお弁当箱に作ることです。例えばピカチュウが作りたいなら、黄色い部分は卵で、黒い部分は海苔でなどです。子どもが弁当を開けた時、ピカチュウが現れます。それは子どもを喜ばせることができます。だからお母さんたちは早起きして子どもたちのためにキャラ弁を作ります。一種の趣味のようなものだと思いませんか?時間があれば私もぜひ挑戦したいです。

First of all, can you make or cook your lunch box by yourself in the morning? My case is no. I have no time to make my lunch box by myself in the morning. Some of my friends make lunch box by their selves. I respect them. However, when you were kindergartner or high school student, you had to bring your lunch box, didn’t you? When you were little girl, your mother or father must be make your lunch box. Recently, kyaraben is popular among these parents especially young mother. Kyaraben is making anime character in lunch box by food. For example, if you want to make Pikachu, yellow part of Pikachu make by eggs, and black part of Pikachu make by nori and so on. When children open the lunch box, Pikachu appear. It can make children so happy and exciting. So a lot of mother get up early and make Karaben for their children.
