10 Mouthwatering Bento Lunch Boxes inspired by Pop Culture

These days, most of us view meals as just another chance to restock our bodies with nourishment. Food is dumped on a plate and shoveled into our mouths without much thought, while we browse through highlights on a smartphone.

Well, not all of us.

Bento Monsters is back with a whole new lineup of delicious, healthy, and creative pop-culture inspired bento lunch boxes. The art of arranging food in bentos is a skill most Japanese mothers take very seriously. Mothers want to make sure their children arrive at school with a healthy bento box that all the other children envy. No one wants to look like an unfit or lazy mother.

These creative bento boxes have become a sort of competition between mothers in Japan.

However, some people such as the flickr user Bento Monsters don’t see bento box arranging as a competitive art, rather an expressive art. Take a look at some of Bento Monster’s latest creations:
