    That was from 1959, per a search. By Tatsuo Yoshida of Speed Racer.

    Oh cool! I know he had an American newspaper strip at that time that's been reprinted. Has this ever been reprinted anywhere?

    My favorite thing ever would be the katakana for Superman being subtext for the kanji, "Beautiful Lunch Man."

    Looks like Superman could give Batman some pointers!

    The idea sounds as lovely as the images look. Would probably look nice next to Teshirogis Justice League too

    He does that all the time in the American comics. Let him relax and have some takoyaki for once.

    Takoyaki sounds interesting. Do you know someone who's tried it? How does it taste?

    No man, that's not why they're looking up at him - they're all just jelly that he got the last rice bowl before the diner ran out.


    On a more serious note, this is kind of awesome news! Like really fun and cute and kind of perfect awesome! Yes I know, a lot of us would prefer some action packed superhero manga like One Punch Man or My Hero Academia for Supes, but I don't really know if it'd be all that memorable - I mean Batman has manga and actual anime projects in the more traditional action vein and it just...doesn't have any impact. No oomph. I mean, it's mostly stuff we've seen from Batman before, just now drawn differently. There's so much superhero action with these characters elsewhere that giving it a fresh coat of manga or anime paint doesn't really change anything. It's just a footnote, how a few times these heroes had their fight scenes drawn in a different art style than normal. However actually changing up the genre a bit like this makes it different and unique, but doesn't actually change the lore or anything. Superman's still Superman, we know he still fights for Truth and Justice, we know he still loves Lois Lane, we still get to engage in all his more traditional adventures because this doesn't contradict anything, it's just now we get to enjoy him getting to be a foodie in between adventures, adding a bit more of his slice of life which most of us love anyways only now there's a fun twist to it. I think that's much more exciting for a project like this, gives it a chance to actually stand out and be memorable.

    And it's not like this is some sort of downgrade or step down "inferior" type project either - this sort of food review manga is actually widely successful and popular (don't believe me? Check out Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma - admittedly a much more shounen take on the genre than most, but it only exists because there's an existing fondness for this type of thing). You have full length series and a lot of shorts in this space - it actually makes for some pretty warm and wholesome feeling day in the life sort of stories. I would love to see this get animated into a series of shorts actually if it turns out good, I think that's be a fun way to unwind, just sit back and watch 3-5 minutes of Superman commenting on and savoring a particular rice-bowl dish. Might not set the world on fire, but could be a pure joy in between the more action packed films/shows that we're finally getting!

    Even if it doesn't get animated, I'm still interested in picking this up.

    Yeah, that's my reaction.
    A Superman manga sounded interesting, but it's about him eating? I have a hard time getting excited about this now.
