Hiyo everybody! Today I found a great new cooking tool:

Create your own yummy Japanese taiyaki in your microwave with this simple and easy cooking device! Taiyaki (たい焼き) is a Japanese fish-shaped cake. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. Other common fillings may be custard, chocolate, or cheese. Some shops even sell taiyaki with okonomiyaki, gyoza filling, or a sausage inside. Taiyaki is made using regular pancake or waffle batter. The batter is poured into a fish-shaped mold for each side. The filling is then put on one side and the mold is closed. It is then cooked on both sides until golden brown.
Taiyaki was first baked by a sweet shop Naniwaya in Azabu, Tokyo in 1909, and now can be found all over Japan, especially at food courts of supermarkets and Japanese festivals.

Hello, everyone! Today I present to you the ultimate Japanese treat:

Enjoy this undeniable favourite snack from Japan! The classic thin crunchy cookie sticks dipped in creamy chocolate are waiting for you now. Pocky was first sold in 1966 and consists of chocolate-coated biscuit sticks. The original was followed by almond coatings in 1971, and strawberry coatings in 1977. Today, the product line includes variations as milk, mousse, green tea, honey, banana and coconut flavoured coatings, and themed products such as "Decorer Pocky," with colorful decorative stripes in the coating, and "Men's Pocky," a dark (bittersweet) chocolate and "mature" version.

With winter coming, many of us try to stay indoors and away from the cold. For those days when risking your life on the outside is unavoidable, and you just can't seem to keep warm, we have:

Hello Kitty Hand Warming Pads

These little cloth bags warm up when you open the plastic wrapping, and they stay warm for up to 7 hours. Since it can fit into your pocket, it's perfect for sports, skiing, or any time when you feel cold and just can't warm up. These warming pads feature adorable art of Hello Kitty printed on them. How do they work? Air-activated hand warmers contain cellulose, iron, water, activated carbon (evenly distributes heat), vermiculite (water reservoir) and salt (catalyst) and produce heat from the exothermic oxidation of iron when exposed to air. They typically emit heat for 1 to 10 hours.

And now for Cirno's Perfect Trivia Class!
Yesterday's answer: The largest collection of Pokémon memorabilia belongs to Lisa Courtney (UK), with 14,410 different items as of 14 October 2010, which she has been collecting for over 14 years. Her collection includes items from the UK, USA, France and of course Japan. She has made several trips to Japan for the specific purpose of collecting Pokémon merchandise, each time sending between 8-12 boxes full back to the UK. Part of the collection (including her GWR certificate) has been displayed at the Museum of Hertford as part of an exhibition on popular culture.

Today's question:
Who is the largest competitive Pokémon-video-game family?

You can submit you answer to cirno@animecharactersdatabase.com, or you can send me a PM. I will provide the correct answer in tomorrow's post.
