Throughout Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls are various instances of meal preparation ranging from gourmet to standard household.

The following is a list of these instances as they appear in the series and possible links to recipes for their creation.

Dietary Variations[edit | edit source]

Carnivore/Meat Eater[edit | edit source]


Carnivores are beings anatomically and physiologically adapted to eating animal tissue, whether through predation or scavenging. As a result of their diet, carnivores typically have teeth adapted to tearing and shredding their food.

Herbivore/Vegetarian[edit | edit source]


Herbivores are beings anatomically and physiologically adapted to eating plant material like plants, algae and photosynthesizing bacteria, as the main component of their diet. As a result of their plant diet, herbivores typically have teeth adapted to rasping or grinding their food.

Omnivore[edit | edit source]


Omnivores are beings anatomically and physiologically adapted to eating both plant and animal matter. Herbivores generally have twice as many taste buds as omnivores, while omnivores have over twenty times as many taste buds as carnivores.

The 5 S's of Japanese Cooking[edit | edit source]

In traditional Japanese cooking there are 5 basic seasonings that are essential for most dishes. They are: (listed in order of lightest to strongest flavour) Sugar (SATO (砂糖)), Salt (SHIO (塩)), Vinegar (aka Sour)(SU (酢)), Soy Sauce (SEUYU (醤油)), and Miso Paste (MISO (味噌)).
The way these seasonings are remembered is by associating them with the "s" row of the hiragana/katakana alphabet; Sa(さ), Shi(し), Su(す), Se(せ), So(そ). (Sugar (SATO (砂糖)), Salt (SHIO (塩)), Vinegar (SU (酢)), Soy Sauce (SEUYU (醤油)), and Miso Paste (MISO (味噌))

The order that these seasonings are introduced into the dish is as follows:


1. Sugar: Sweet taste is difficult to penetrate through other tastes. Due to this adding sugar first is usually advisable and allows more flexibility if the cook needs to adjust the sweetness with other ingredients. If salt or soy sauce is added before sugar, it becomes very difficult for the sweet taste to seep through the food, due to the opposing tastes.

2. Salt: Salt is added at the early stage of cooking because of its strong permeation and high absorption nature. It is not only for flavoring but to pull moisture from vegetables and get rid of the smell in fish. It’s often used in defining the taste of the cooking.

3. Vinegar: Having vinegar come after salt is important, especially for vegetables as the vinegar will not seep in if there is too much moisture in the vegetables.

4. Soy Sauce/Miso Paste: Soy Sauce and Miso Paste are among the last ingredients to be added in a dish as the quality of both are susceptible to heat and will be ruined if heated for too long.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Kimihito is a highly skilled chef, making many of the dishes shown in the series. He's able to make a wide variety of dishes from limited ingredients, and adapt his cooking for housemates with very different dietary needs. All of the girls have complained about gaining weight from eating large amounts of his cuisine.
  • Much like Kimihito, the unnamed Householder (the player character) of Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Online is a skilled cook who can create various dishes for their homestay guests. Their skills are such that numerous girls in the game make mention of how good they are at cooking.
  • Miia is currently being taught to cook by Kimihito, she herself claiming that it would help her look better as a wife in his eyes. However, her cooking is outright terrible, and on at least two occasions has given people food poisoning. Suu, due to her unique biology, is the only person who can eat it without any ill effects. Because of this, Kimihito has banned her from cooking until she reads a cookbook. The reason for her horrible food is that, being a carnivore, she has 1/25 - 1/50 sense of taste sensitivity that humans have. Therefore, even when she taste tests what she makes, she can't tell if it's bad or not.
    • This is a common trope in anime, as cooking is traditionally considered an essential skill for a Japanese wife, and therefore such characters must "overcome" their lack of skill in other ways so their interest will love them despite their shortcomings.
  • The term "Herbivore Men" or "Grass-eater Men" (草食(系)男子, Sōshoku(-kei) danshi) is a term used in Japan to describe men who show no interest in getting married or finding a girlfriend and/or have a non-assertive/passive, indifferent attitude toward relationships.
  • The term "Carnivorous Women" is a term used in Japan to describe women who take the initiative, and make the first move when it comes to dating.
