I am reading another food-themed manga called Gokudou Meshi on JManga. This manga has a very interesting setting – in a Japanese prison!

How does one spin a food-themed yarn in a prison…? I have only read Volume 1 so far, and about to embark on Volume 2.

The story in Gokudou Meshi is about a group of prisoners who huddle together and compete with each other in a story-telling competition in the days leading up to the New Year. They must each tell a story about the food that is most memorable to them, and describe it as vividly as possible. Whoever makes the most people drool after listening their story will be the winner of the competition, and the prize is that the winner will choose one dish from everyone else’s osechi ryori meal provided by the prison on New Year’s Day.

The manga is really fun to read! I am going to bed now with Volume 2! 🙂

    Hi, I’m really keen on reading both this manga and ekiben hitoritabi, unfortunately jmanga has stopped its website services. I was wondering if you knew any alternate websites to read an English edition on?

    Hi Jane, apologies for the late reply. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to locate another website to read this manga. I would love to read it again.
