October’s no longer about Halloween in all its eerie squishy Black & Orange. Quite contrary, it’s been recoloured PINK!
Many sites, TV channels, magazines & even retail fronts have gone PINK (nekoguchi included) during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month ultimately raising some money for research.
While most people can’t do much about the research itself, they however, can do something about the monies funding the research. And I reckon some even psyched themselves into believing that simply appreciating boobs are the way to go.
Given sex & erotic watz-notz, sells (very well actually!) But I give it to the wacky Japanese to come up with, manufacture & profit from something as simplistic as Oppai Pudding (おっぱいプリン) which literally translates to Breast pudding.
Simply put, it’s just custard pudding that comes in a creative package. The package needs to be unrevealed in pieces (much to the joy of many otakus, I believe). At first glance it’s just another harmless, innocent looking pink box with pictures depicting three different prefectures of Japan – Osaka, Tokyo & Yokohama. Once unwrapped, you’re greeted with the over friendly anime hottie – either a chou kawaii cutie, a school girl who’s brimming with “innocence” or a no-mess-with-me hot chick.
Interestingly, since it’s going to be a commercial product the makers probably thought that it would better to be on the conservative side by giving the hotties bras over their seemingly oishii boobs. (Really! -.-~!) Much to the consumer’s delight, you get to undress your pudding! Apparently, each cutie says a different quirky phrase. My Japanese’s not fantastic. I reckon this Osaka lady is whispering something like “Sweet secret dessert.If you lick, you’ll get fired up” or something like that. Are we getting hot yet???…
I find it seemingly strange though that this little caption is selling like hotcakes at one of the shops just outside the famous Asakusa Kannon Temple.
I guess one could bring this piece of creative to this law abiding country and start making money … … … … … provided its been approved by the Ministry of Health, gone through the food calculator, and ultimately rated perhaps an NC16 (for censorship). -.-!
