Nowadays in Japan, you can get Onigiri easily at convenience store (コンビニ、Kobini) at nearly every part of Japan. They are satisfyingly delicious, affordable to your pocket and rich in variety for your picky mouth.

If you have no idea what an ONIGIRI is, no worries, very simple,  in short, it is a rice ball that come in either a triangular or round form that usually wrapped in seaweed (のり、Nori). Traditional types often favored with a little seasoning of salt or some pickled ingredients and with the high demand and popularity, various creative fillings and flavors are developed for the mass.

When classic villains return – Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ Review

If you’ve got even the slightest bit of knowledge on anime, manga, or Japanese pop-culture in general, then the name of Dragon Ball Z (also affectionately known as DBZ to many fans) will no doubt be familiar.
