Anime Food Re-creation: Fruits Basket's Onigiri

A little while ago, I posted a tutorial on how to make onigiri (Japanese riceballs). Onigiri plays an iconic role in the anime and manga Fruits Basket. In one scene, Tohru (the protagonist) makes onigiri for a game for a school festival. Each onigiri is decorated differently with mystery fillings inside - some of which have unappetizing fillings as "punishments." I'd hate to bite into that hidden leek riceball like poor Kyo! >_<

Here is my re-creation of Tohru's platter of onigiri!

Real Life Anime Food - Fruits Basket Onigiri
Since I had to eat these with my family, I decided to play nice and just use Tuna Mayo as the filling. For the decorations, I used pieces of nori (seaweed), green onion, kimchi (because I was out of umeboshi - the Japanese pickled plums T_T ), green peas, nori powder, sakura denbu (a sweet, pink fish powder), and black sesame seeds.

What do you think? Pretty close, huh? :]
