Ita-Curry Craze Sweeps Akiba

ita_curry_aoi_nishimata_01.jpg

The latest consumer good to receive an upgrade via the otaku fine art of ita-fication is modern Japan’s favorite foreign dish, curry. Toradora, ef: a tale of melodies, Musubi of Sekirei and even dear Nagisa-chan of Clannad have received their own ita-curry products, catered specifically for otaku culinary taste.

Eroge illustrator Aoi Nishimata (Shuffle!), the same artist whose moe ita-rice became a huge marketing coup for a small town last year, has also lent her talents to the creation of moe curry, illustrating the cover art for the farming region’s brand of beef curry with the above image of a moe kimono-clad woman.

Apparently, the growing reach of Akiba (and moe) knows few boundaries.

Touhou Canned Tea Vending Machine

touhou-cans-1.jpg

Combining some of the most tired Japan related memes available, “strange items sold from vending machines – only in Japan!” and “things which shouldn’t be canned but are anyway – crazy Japanese!”, along with moe marketing, this Touhou tea-in-a-can vending machine looks set to become a favourite for desperate Akiba news sites.

The vending machine is currently operational in central Akihabara near all the interesting PC parts shops (right by T-Zone it would appear), so some of you may wish to pay a visit, if only to gawp.

toradora_index_cafe_event_00.jpg

A nekomimi themed maid café in Akihabara will be holding a special “Toradora x Index” event next week, with the menu offering the likes of “Minori‘s Purin” and “Index‘s Donburi”.

The maids are sure to be dressed in appropriate cosplay, plus there is the promise of limited edition presents to customers, and even the opportunity to pay $40 to eat from the “Purin Bucket”, better known here as Minorin’s Raep Bucket.

Strike Witches Ita-Bento

This picture of an edible Strike Witches’ Gertrud Barkhorn nori (seaweed) decorated rice comes to us via Danny’s.

Fears of Photoshop tend to arise from similar photos, but in this case the texture of the nori and only a simple cut-out stenciling job required might make that unlikely?

No explanation for these images of loli licking seems readily apparent, so it looks as if chalking it up to the idiosyncrasies of Japanese TV is advisable.

Ita-Rice Proves Huge Success

Ero Ita-Rice – Aoi Nishimata

Several months ago we reported on the introduction of what could be called “ita-rice” -  bags of rice decorated with a moe illustration by well-known female eroge artist 西又葵 / Aoi Nishimata (Shuffle!, Final Approach, etc.)

This unique approach to selling rice has since turned into a huge marketing coup for the small town of Ugomachi (Akita Prefecture), with reportedly 2 entire years’ worth of sales of rice being sold in only 1 month.

Tragedy Cat Food

Tragedy Cat Food
Tragedy Cat Food

Pictured is Nanjing station, where boxes upon boxes of cats fill the station, and the air is ceaselessly pierced by their wailing. There are some 1,400 in this shipment alone, and three shipments are due the same day for a total of 5,000 cats.

The cats are going to China’s culinary capital (of sorts), Guangzhou, where an unparalleled variety of animals are eaten.

They are destined to become what is prosaically called “活猫水煮” / “Boiled alive cat”, a dish made by hitting the cat on the head to quieten it, and then throwing it in a pot of boiling water whilst it still lives:
