Tetsuwan Atom Miso Bowl

I bought this cute Tetsuwan Atom, (aka Astroboy), miso bowl in Osaka last year, and boy do I love it. Highlighted by artwork on all four sides of the bowl, including Astro's sister, Uran (and pet), the only thing I need to do now is find some worthy miso here in America to eat from out of it!

What, no comments on this neat, cute bowl? Are there no Astro Boy fans left?

Bloggers must be offline or something.

I recall watching Astro Boy as a youngster, and Kimba the White Lion, the original lion king before Disney plagiarized the Japanese cartoon.

I love bowls in general. I have a couple of cute Japanese Moomin-themed soup bowls and thermoses. This one looks like it should be part of a lunch set, with a matching lid and an Astro Boy bento box that it fits snugly into.

I always dig Astro Boy art, but I can't let it go without saying. The iffy registration makes it all the more beautiful to me.

Astro was also my intro to Japanese anime as a child in the very early 70's. Gigantor, and of course Speed Racer, was also syndicated in my area.

Haha, I knew you were gonna say that Mr. C! Not sure if this came with a set, now you have me curious and looking around online.

Thanks for the comments!
