Just the other day, I was thinking to myself, “I should post something to my site”. At the time, I was thinking of something along the lines of a helpful resource or guide (not what you are seeing instead). Not much later afterwards, two links floated their way over to me saying: “please, click on us, you know you want to”. From that, I am reevaluating whether I want to be Facebook friends with certain people (THANKS A LOT ALEX) and whether I should tell my brain to keep its mouth shut, because well, be careful what you wish for.
These two things. These two things right here. WTF JAPAN. SERIOUSLY. WTF?
First: For the home video release of Evangelion 3.33, fast food chain Lotteria is doing a promotion involving a nonuple decker cheeseburger… that’s a burger with nine patties and nine cheese slices. Apparently it’s a clever play on Evangelion Q, which is pronounced “kyuu”, which is the word for nine in Japanese. All I have to say is that if you can’t even fit the thing in your mouth, it’s probably a bad idea. The only reasonable part of this is that it comes with a Spear of Longinus fork, which easily (not so obvious sarcasm) solves the question as to how you are expected to eat this monstrosity. (Source)
Second: The Round 1 bowling chain is providing patrons with the option of wearing an Evangelion themed bowling pin costume while they bowl. Because, of course, it’s not enough to just go bowling, you should also cosplay as the activity that you’re engaging in, and to go the extra mile, it should also be themed around your favorite anime, because, well… when in Japan. I think Lotteria should up the ante on Round 1 and offer their patrons a costume of the nonuple decker cheeseburger while they eat the nonuple decker cheeseburger. Because it’s not enough to just eat a nonuple decker cheeseburger, you should also dress up as a nonuple decker cheeseburger while you eat one. (Source)
I really just… I don’t even. God damn it Japan, god damn it.
