Let’s face it: Mainstream network television rarely gives a nod to anime and manga fandom.

Which is what made this week’s episodes of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” extra-special. For three nights, a copy of “The Manga Cookbook” (published by my company) was prominently displayed on the set of the CBS celebrity talk show.

“The Manga Cookbook,” which is available in the Crunchyroll Store, uses step-by-step illustrations to teach fans how to make the same sorts of food they see their favorite anime and manga characters eating.

The cookbook and a pair of chopsticks could be seen sitting atop the lectern manned by Geoff Peterson, host Craig Ferguson’s robot-skeleton sidekick.

During the closing segment of Monday’s show, Ferguson and Geoff discussed the book. “I like this,” Ferguson said. “This is like ‘Pokemon’ for hungry people!” 

A video of their exchange can be viewed on YouTube:

Thanks for your reply. Glad you like the book!

The reason it doesn't read right to left like a manga is because it's designed to be seen primarily as a cookbook, and almost all Japanese cookbooks are actually designed Western-style (reading left to right).

I can only imagine how confused Craig Ferguson might have been if the front cover was on the "back" of the book. Probably would have never made it onto the show
