They = HAMs? kids? mixture? family? friends?

Meal = dinner? lunch? breakfast?

Did they get sick from the meal?

Did they regret it immediately? Within a day? Days later? Weeks? Months? Years?
Did anyone die?
Relevant what the meal consisted of? Where they ate the meal? When they ate it? Did they all eat it together? At the same time? In the same place?

Sorry for some of the duplicate questions. I was away for a bit before I sent the post, in the meantime Balin had posted some similar questions.

There is a Kaori who is a famous Japanese voice actress...is this from an anime or manga?

is the family very large? is it two parents, two children?

Was this meal a special occasion? was it a multi-course meal?

Was it the the actual food itself that killed them? or possibly circumstances around the meal?

Did they eat it at home? at a restaurant?

Is the preparation of the food relevant?
Is the gender of anyone in the family relevant? The gender of the dead person?

Cannibalism relevant?
Did they eat a meal that used up a certain ingredient which, if they still had it, could have saved someone's life?

Was the dead person someone named Kaori? Is the title relevant in its capacity as a Japanese female given name?

Was the cannibalism unnecessary? Did they think they would die if not for cannibalism? Is the meal in question the act of cannibalism? Did the cannibals know they ate human meat at the time?
