Anime Food Re-creation: Angel Beats! Super Spicy Mapo Tofu

Hello, Adventurers! Today, I bring another anime food re-creation! It's the Super Spicy Mapo Tofu from Angel Beats!
Angel Beats! - Super Spicy Mapo Tofu
The anime described the Super Spicy Mapo Tofu as having a huge spicy kick and then having a complex, flavorful aftertaste. My version has more of a spiciness that builds up, but it's still pretty flavorful.

I kept things simple and used a premade Mapo Tofu Sauce, but you can always make the sauce from scratch.

I started with a "Mild" sauce because my brother doesn't like spicy food. I separated some of the sauce and tofu for him before making a super spicy version for myself. The recipe is for the full tofu and sauce packet though. Feel free to start with the "Hot" version of the sauce and adjust the spices to your liking!
