Snuggle up to a sexy daikon body pillow in Japan

This cheeky viral radish is waiting to seduce you.

Felissimo’s You+More brand (which takes its name from the word “humour”) specialises in cute and humorous goods designed to bring smiles to customers’ faces. They’ve certainly made us laugh with products like the “Lazing on a Seal’s Stomach Big Cushion Case” and their lineup of adorable bunny bags, and now they’re reaching out to the vegetable kingdom for their latest design inspiration.

The new product being added to their weird and whacky homewares collection is a soft and cuddly pillow, which doesn’t sound like anything out of the ordinary…until you realise that it comes in the shape of a sexy daikon radish.

If you’re unfamiliar with the notion of a seductive daikon, it’s actually a hashtag that pops up on social media when people come across a Japanese white radish that’s shaped as if it’s posing suggestively.

Not everyone is lucky enough to find a sultry radish to photograph and share on social media, so the new Sexy Daikon Body Pillow is here to fill that radish-shaped void in everyone’s hearts, with two sizes to choose from.

If you’re watching your portion sizes, the 66-centimetre (26-inch) long mini version will be enough to keep you company.

If you want more daikon for your buck, the larger 115-centimetre version is the perfect size for spooning.

▼ The mini body pillow retails for 3,456 yen (US$32.14)…

▼ While the larger version retails for 7,776 yen.

No matter what size you choose, you’ll never be lonely knowing there’s a sexy radish waiting to greet you when you get home after a long day!

The veggie pillows are currently available to purchase from the company’s official site, with local orders scheduled to be sent out sometime between April and June. International ordering should be available from their global site shortly, where you can also pick up a pair of cat gloves to keep you company too!

The Video Of Alina Zagitova's Short Program Shows A Record-Breaking Performance

On Wednesday, Feb. 21 (Tuesday night, U.S. time), 18-year-old Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva set a world record to take the lead in the women's short program at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Shortly after, her 15-year-old teammate Alina Zagitova did one better. The video of Alina Zagitova's short program performance shows the moment she completed her own record-breaking routine, minutes after the previous record had been set by her teammate.

Zagitova's routine received of a score of 82.92 at the Gangneung Ice Arena in South Korea, pitting her in the lead ahead of Thursday's free skate portion of the women's competition. Still, the teen sensation said she has plenty of room for improvement for a performance that had "a few imperfections."

"I'm happy I was able to cope with my nerves and skate well, set a world record," Zagitova said after her short program, per ESPN, "but I've still got something to work towards and I can't afford to relax."

Just three skaters had performed between the time Medvedeva performed her routine and the moment when Zagitova bested that routine. Much like her younger teammate, the older of the two Russian competitors did not seem too elated by her performance.

"I'm satisfied with my performance today," Medvedeva said after her routine. "It was not my best, but it was OK. All the battle is still ahead."

The story of Zagitova and Medvedeva, and their reactions to their record-breaking performances, pretty much tell the story of the women's individual figure skating competition at the PyeongChang Olympics.

At the top, there are two Russian athletes, pushing each other to new boundaries, fight for gold. And then, there's everyone else. Zagitova currently sits over four points ahead of third place, which belongs to Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond heading into Thursday's free skate.

More to come.

Rumors of leaked starter Pokémon for next game in series have fans keeping their fingers crossed

Their authenticity is debatable, but their cuteness is unquestionable.

When you stop and think about it, the official English slogan for the Pokémon franchise is kind of a mean-spirited tease. Honestly, how are we supposed to “catch ‘em all” when every couple years the Pokémon Company puts out a new game with a new set of Pocket Monsters to catch?

Of course, the flipside is that fans don’t really want their Pokédexes to be permanently filled anyway. As soon as they’ve captured and evolved every species in one game, they start dreaming about the next generation, which brings us to a trio of illustration sets that have been flying around the Internet this week, rumored to be the concept art for the three starter Pokémon for the next game in the series.

The half-monkey half-koala Grass-type, Fire-type bunny with flaming ears and early crowd favorite Water-type platypus all feature genuine Pokémon-caliber cuteness (although the platypus is pretty much just a platypus with no distinctly fantasy elements beyond its blue coloring). But before you go spending too much mental energy weighing the speculative pros and cons of picking each as your starter, there are a few things to bear in mind.

First, while there’s plenty of Japanese-text notations on the drawings, it’s unorthodox in the way it splits the duties of hiragana, katakana, and kanji, the three categories of Japanese written characters. While this could be the result of a native Japanese designer simply switching up writing styles to be playful (or maybe spare himself a hand cramp by choosing whatever takes the fewest strokes to write), it could also be a sign that whoever drew the illustrations isn’t Japanese, which would be kind of a red flag since up until now the Pokémon Company has always used Japanese designers.

Second, it’s worth remembering that with so many fans around the world chomping at the bit for the next mainline Pokémon game, the temptation for fan artists to try to pass off their own drawings as official concept art can become irresistibly high, and these illustrations could very well be high-quality impostors, like what happened in the heady days leading up to the Sailor Moon reboot.

But to those still holding out hope that these are authentic, there are rumors that a brand-new Pokémon game is on its way to Nintendo’s Switch in the not-too-distant future, and given how aggressive Nintendo was in putting out new Zelda and Mario games for the system in its first year, it may very well be keeping its foot on the accelerator and already finalizing designs for the next Pokémon game in order to get it in players’ hands as soon as possible.

And hey, even if these loveable designs aren’t actually part of the official next generation of Pocket Monsters, you can look forward to perhaps playing with them in the next Pokémon fan game, at least until Nintendo inevitably gets it taken down.
