I don’t think anyone’s translated the tweet that lists all the books we see Kuroko reading in canon, so here you go:
So, as a chef and a former intense athlete, I have to be hella conscious about keeping in shape and not gaining a shit ton of weight by inhaling everything I eat 24/7. This is why, when I can, I like to work with healthier shit to combat all the creamy, sugar and fat filled delicacies I make like 24/7.
For everyone like me who’s working on staying in shape or being healthy, this recipes for you, my precious weeb losers.
Based on the Honey Lemon Slices from Kuroko no Basuke (my current obsession), I decided to do my own take on this insanely good for you Japanese treat.
OH. AND FUN FACT ABOUT THESE. IT’S A SNACK AND A DRINK ALL IN ONE. You’ll find out what I’m talking about later.
Honey Lemon Slices
(serves: an entire fucking basketball team ayyoo)
- 2 lemons
- enough honey to fully cover all the lemons*
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 7 mint leaves (for later)
- 4 cups water (for later)
*So fun fact for all your plebs out there: there’s like 5 million types of honeys that vary in not only flavor, but texture. For this recipe, I used a creamy clover honey mixed with a more transparent, thick chestnut honey to combat the sweetness with some bitterness from the chestnut. Use whatever the fuck you want, but if you’re using a raw, or creamy honey, mix it with some water to make it more liquidy and stuff.
- Thinly slice the lemons, making sure you’re using basically everything but the ends and REMOVE ALL THE SEEDS HOLY SHIT.
- Once they’re all sliced, mix your honey with the cinnamon and ginger until it’s all combined. Then, take a glass tupperware container thing and cover the bottom with a thin layer of your honey mixture.
- On top of that, add one layer of lemon slices, and then just alternate between honey and lemon slices until you finished all the lemon slices.
- Once that’s done, pour in the remainder of your honey mixture so that it completely covers the lemons, and then cover that with a lid and throw it in the fridge.
- Keep it chilled for at least 2 days, and no more than 3 days. Try and shake or mix the container at least twice a day so that the lemon juices can mix with the honey.
- Once that’s all done, throw it in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes so that they’re hella chilled, and then remove the lemon slices from the container.
- After they’re all plated and shit, combine 4 cups of water, 7 mint leaves, and hell, some ice cubes, with the liquid in the tupperware container.
- Defeat your basketball foes with your incredible jumps and your moe qualities.
TADAH MOTHERFUCKER. You just made a hella healthy treat for you and your shit weeb friends to eat and drink while you’re watching kawaii dudes dripping glittery sparkle sweat all over the B-Ball courts.
Make this during the summer when you want something cold, sweet and healthy to devour, make em when you’re sick to get some radical antioxidants and vitamin C or whatever, just make them all the fucking time I dare you, you pieces of shit.
ALRIGHTY. THAT’S ALL FOR THIS RECIPE. STAY TUNED FOR MORE RECIPES THAT WILL DEFINITELY NOT INVOLVE KUROKO NO BASUKE IN SOME WAY (maybe probably i think sort of)

Tomoe Gozen 巴御前- onna bugeisha
Tomoe Gozen was a female samurai during the Genpei War of 1180–1185 CE. Though female warriors were not uncommon in Japan at the time, Tomoe is one of very few female samurai, highly trained and skilled in horseback riding, archery, sword fighting and she was also greatly skilled in the use of the naginata, which is a long staff with a curved blade at one end. Tomoe Gozen beheaded many enemies with naginata, because she didn’t believe in staying behind in battles, she was always at the fore front of any battle line.
She was a senior captain under general Minamoto no Yoshinaka, and either his attendant or consort as well, depending on the source. Her surname is not known, as Gozen is simply a title, somewhat like “Lady.”
The earliest written source regarding Tomoe Gozen is from the 14th century Japanese classic, The Tale of the Heike, which in turn is derived from oral tradition. This source describes her as almost supernaturally strong, very beautiful, and surpassing her male colleagues in skill and bravery.
The Heike Monogatari goes on to say that Tomoe was one of the last five of Yoshinaka’s warriors standing at the tail end of the Battle of Awazu, and that Yoshinaka, knowing that death was near, urged her to flee. Though reluctant, she rushed a Minamoto warrior named Onda no Hachirô Moroshige, cut his head off, and then fled for the eastern provinces.
Some have written that Tomoe in fact died in battle with her husband, while others assert that she survived and became a nun.
