harakiri is the way


Classic Omurice from Koufuku Grafitti (Requested)

Ah, the anime classic! As requested by an anon here. (Yes, there are still a few more versions of the omuraisu coming up in separate posts)

Rice in Omurice (6 servings)


  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 3 cups uncooked rice
  • 50g butter
  • 1 bottle of tomato ketchup, to taste
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Omelette (Per serving)


  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Olive Oil, 2 tbsp

Okay, the reason why there’s so much rice is that you can make lots of variations at the same time! (Will post them later) The leftover rice is also really great for bentos the next day.

Method (as shown above)

1. Cook the rice with a rice cooker! This will take about half an hour. You can prepare the other ingredients in the mean time.

2. Heat a saucepan and melt the butter.

3. Throw in the onions and stir-fry.

4. When the onions are transparent, throw in the chicken and stir-fry till cooked.

5. When the rice is done, throw in the rice and stir-fry until the rice has been covered with the melted butter.

6. Put in some ketchup, and stir, until the rice is evenly orange/red. You might have to do this a few times till you get the colour and taste you want.

7. Season with salt and pepper.

8. Now it’s time for the eggs! In a different pan (Non-stick will be easier), and put in the olive oil, making sure all parts of the pan are oiled.

9. Pour the egg in the pan in a circular motion, making sure that there is a circle of egg.

10: Do not flip unless your skill level is higher than mine (It always tears for me… in a 28cm pan). Place some rice horizontally on the egg and fold up the sides like this:

11. Place a plate over the pan, flip, and serve!

12. Attempt to decorate it with more ketchup, and enjoy!

Note: Kiri/斬り can mean to cut someone down…. or at least that’s what I learnt from Bleach eons ago. Lol. Or there’s the kiri in harakiri 腹切り. Either way, failing to spell out kirin’s name doesn’t sound very nice. XD.

Serj Tankian - Harakiri

Our statues
The soaring edifice of our times
Detracted from the ways of the wise
The future will view all history as a crime
So father, tell us when is time to rise

Japanese Morphology

食べ物 (tabemono) - Word for food in Japanese is literally “thing you eat." 食べる is the verb for eat and 物 means thing. 

飲み物 (nomimono) - Word for drink (noun) is literally "thing you drink.” 飲み comes from the verb 飲む (to drink) and 物 means thing. 

着物 (kimono) - We all know kimono as the ‘traditional Japanese dress’ but in Japanese it is literally “thing you wear.” 着る is the verb 'to put on’ for things that go on your main body generally (note: Japanese has a few different verbs for putting things on - e.g. a different verb to put on shoes, jewelry, hats..) and 物 means thing. 

腹切り / 切腹 (harakiri / seppuku) -  Depending on where you live, you may or may not have learned about seppuku in your world history class–that honorable Japanese way of suicide as a preference to being taken as prisoners of war, etc. and that way of suicide is cutting your stomach open..so 腹切り literally means "stomach cut,“ 腹 is one word for stomach and 切り means "to cut.” Seppuku is another way to say harakiri and actually has the same kanji but flipped which I guess might have something to the effect of literally “out stomach." 

腹巻き (haramaki) - My grandma knitted me a haramaki when I was a kid, which was basically a scarf for my stomach to keep me warm during the winter. Haramaki is literally "stomach wrap.” 腹 is stomach and 巻き comes from the verb 巻く “to wrap." 

靴下 (kutsushita) - The word for sock in Japanese is literally "under shoe.” 靴 means shoe and 下 means under or below

動物園 (doubutsuen) - The word for zoo in Japanese literally means “moving thing park.” 動物 together means animal, but if you break apart even these two kanji, 動 comes from 動く which is the verb “to move” and 物 as we have seen before means thing. Those two together to make animal means “moving thing.” 園 means garden or park

思い出 (omoide) - Word for remember in Japanese, but literally “think out.” 思い comes from the verb 思う “to think” and 出 can be translated to something like “out." 

These are just a few words that I picked out but there are a lot more out there!

*Chinese morphology is also similar in that you can see these kinds of meanings within the characters.
