Disney’s lovable mascot flies high — Duffy takes to the air on JAL Happy Journey Express planes!

Duffy, Disney’s lovable stuffed bear character, has a huge following in Japan. Just step inside Tokyo Disney Resort, and the bear’s popularity is abundantly clear as you see the large number of guests carrying their own Duffy toy in adorable and sometimes exquisitely hand-made costumes.

Well, we’ve already seen the well-loved bear tuned into an amazing furry bus that made a special tour from Tokyo to Shizuoka Prefecture a little over a year ago, and now it seems the mascot will be embarking on a whole new journey — into the big blue sky!  

That’s right, Duffy will be flying high this summer as Oriental Land, the operator of Tokyo Disney Resort, and Japan Airlines team up in the “Journey with Duffy Your Friend Forever” campaign to commemorate Duffy’s 10th anniversary at Tokyo DisneySea. As part of the program, they will be launching the “JAL Happy Journey Express“, a fleet of four specially painted Boeing 737-800 planes, starting on July 14.

The Happy Journey Express planes will be illustrated with Duffy in his sailor outfit, and the very first outing by one of the planes is scheduled to be flight JL435 from Tokyo to Matsuyama, departing Tokyo’s Haneda Airport at 1 pm.

As a bonus, kids flying on the Happy Journey Express will be receiving original Duffy plastic folders, and there will also be special postcards available on the flights as well. The Duffy planes are scheduled to be in service until April next year, so they will be busy flying the skies for a while, but we have a feeling that seats on the flights will be in extremely high demand, from both young and adult Duffy fans alike.

Oriental Land and Japan Airlines will also be offering other promotions as part of the Journey with Duffy campaign, such as a sweepstakes for travelers flying on at least two domestic JAL group flights between July 11 and September 23 with prizes such as model JAL Happy Journey Express planes and tickets to the Tokyo DisneySea Private Evening Party. And for visitors who plan to make the trip to the theme resort from different parts of Japan, the Japan Airlines-affiliated travel company JALPAK is offering special “Visit Tokyo Resort with JAL” tours until October this year that includes airport transport on the “Magical Fantasy Bus” as well as souvenir Disney items and special optional tours at the resort.      

And even if you’re not flying, don’t worry; there will still be ways for you to enjoy Duffy’s special anniversary campaign, with the nearly 50 different types of Duffy-themed goods and food items which will be available and also the special decorations that will be on display at Tokyo DisneySea.

Happy Duffy spotting, everyone!

Classic shojo manga Kodomo no Omocha getting first new chapter in 17 years

22:09 cherishe 0 Comments

KO 1

We recently found out that the upcoming Dragon Ball Super is getting a manga version to go along with the new anime, but it’s not just the classic Japanese comic for boys that’s back in the spotlight. Kodomo no Omocha (also known as Kodocha and Child’s Toy) was one of the early shojo manga franchises to score a hit with English-reading audiences, and 17 years after the series wrapped up, it’s getting a new chapter next month.

Passionate and well-informed fans will no doubt point out that Kodomo no Omocha had a follow-up of sorts in 2010, when author and artist Miho Obana penned a story in which Kodocha’s bickering lovers Sana and Akito met up with characters from one of her other manga, Honey Bitter. That crossover was titled Deep Clear, though, while Obana’s upcoming project is part of Kodomo no Omocha alone, making this new chapter the first official installment of Kodomo no Omocha since its serialization in Shueisha’s Ribon shojo manga anthology ended in 1998.

That means Sana and Akito are unlikely to be sharing page space with visitors from outside their own series. Being part of the Kodocha umbrella also suggests the setting will return to the pair’s student days, unlike Deep Clear, which portrayed them as adults.

The new Kodomo no Omocha manga is part of Ribon’s ongoing 60th anniversary celebration and will appear in this year’s September issue, which hits newsstands in Japan on August 3.

World’s smallest dinosaur egg just discovered in Hyogo Prefecture

21:09 cherishe 0 Comments

Everyone has got dinosaurs on their mind at the moment since most of the world is going crazy for Jurassic World. The exception to this is of course, Japan who can’t watch the movie until August 5. (Why Japanese movie people? Why?!?!) Not to be left out of the giant lizard game, officials in Hyogo Prefecture have confirmed the discovery of a brand new dinosaur egg. By analyzing the fossil, it is estimated that this new egg is the world’s smallest dinosaur egg ever. That’s a gigantic discovery of the tiniest kind.

Japan is known for being the land of fictional “dinosaurs”, like Godzilla, Mothra, Gamera and other kaiju, but it isn’t as well-known for the actual dinosaurs that roamed the Earth millions of years ago. That isn’t to say that there weren’t any dinosaurs on ancient Japanese lands, but rather that the geological activity that made Japan what it is today was not very fossil-friendly. For this reason, fossils are only commonly found in a few areas in Japan like Hyogo Prefecture, where the shallow coastal plains were more conducive to forming fossils.

A paper published on June 29 reported the discovery of five fossilized dinosaur egg shells in Hyogo’s Tamba City. This discovery has the dinosaur community of Japan in raptor, sorry, rapture, as one of those eggs had never before been unearthed. This new species of egg has a thickness of 0.4 millimeters which is slightly thicker than a chicken egg. Scientists are guessing the estimated weight is about 100 grams (0.22 pounds) making it one of the smallest dinosaur eggs, if not the smallest.

▼ An artistic rendition of the dinosaur that could be found in the egg

▼ A total of eight fossilized pieces of the new dinosaur egg were found.

The fossils will be on display from July 21 to August 31 at the Museum of Nature and Human Activities in Sanda, Hyogo. Visitors will be able to get an up-close view of the brand new Nipponoolithus ramosus oogen. et oosp. nov., which basically means “Japan branched stone egg” in Japanese, Greek, and Latin. Perhaps this new egg will also set a record for the wordiest egg name.

Dinosaur aficionados going to see the new fossilized egg shells might also be interested in a trip to the nearby Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum, the only dedicated dinosaur museum in Japan. The Katsuyama area of Fukui is known for its many fossils and is the discovery place of two Japanese dinosaurs, the Fukuisaurus and the Fukuiraptor.

▼ But seriously, check out the new egg fossils in Hyogo!

People in Japan are tearing up over these two cram school commercials【Videos】

20:09 cherishe 0 Comments

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.18.22 PM

Love it or hate it, cram school, or juku in Japanese, is one part of Asian academic culture that looks like it’s here to stay.

Although most cram schools tend to advertise before entrance exam season begins and towards the end of the Japanese school year in March, recently more and more children are starting to attend summer study courses as well.

Gearing up for summer vacation, Waseda Academy put out two promotional commercials highlighting the determination of spirited youth, which have left Japanese viewers so moved they couldn’t help but shed a few tears while watching.

In the first commercial, young Takashi’s mother laments about all the strange things that her son does, saying that children are “strange beings”.

Some of the strange things she finds her third-grade son doing include shutting himself up in small spaces, jumping down from high places, not being able to concentrate, putting sand in his pocket, hiding his mother’s things, and eating things that aren’t his. Not being able to understand what compels children to act in certain ways that worry or cause her trouble seems like something that most parents can relate to.

strangeYouTube

From what seems out of the blue, Takashi tells his mother he wants to go to cram school as part of his plans to become an astronaut some day. Following his admission we get a glimpse of Takashi’s version of the same scenes, and a totally different story emerges.

▼ “Strange Beings”

It ends with a heartwarming narration by Takashi’s mother, saying that no matter how much she may not understand her son, a “strange being” and all the strange things he does, she’ll always support him no matter what.

The second commercial takes a slightly different approach and tells the story of two friends in their third year of junior high school. It features quotes and re-enactments of scenes from the short story Run, Melos!, a short story by Osamu Dazai that was later made into an animated feature by Bandai in 1992.

Both girls, Rin and Mariko, are in the track and field club at school. Part of the same class and club, they’re always together and they know everything about each other… or so it would seem until the high school “entrance exam” wall begins to rise up between them.

HashireYouTube

The commercial skillfully reflects the bittersweet part of adolescence and the desire to want things to remain like they always have been, even though it’s inevitable that they can’t stay that way forever.

▼ “Run, Melos!”

So, those of you watching at home or on your lunch break, were you able to make it through both with dry eyes? Or did these commercials move you as much as they’ve moved Japanese people? Let us know in the comments section!

You’ll flip out over these amazing character art pancakes! 【Videos】

19:10 cherishe 0 Comments

Our mothers may have discouraged it, but playing with your food can be incredibly fun and rewarding. Even if it turns out looking kind of a mess, you still get to eat it – and who doesn’t love eating delicious food? But one thing we just can’t get the hang of is pancake art. Luckily for us, these amazing videos are here to show us how it’s done!

Featuring all of our beloved characters from Pikachu to Olaf to Hello Kitty, these videos have got us drooling and ready to start splashing batter everywhere ourselves!

The pancake videos are part of a series by YouTuber Tiger Tomato. Each one features a full-colour pancake rendering of a familiar character. We’re mesmerised by the steady hand of the artist and the perfectly smooth and Instagram-worthy level of presentation devoted to each pancake. Which one is your favourite?

Pikachu!

Sonic!

Rainbow Dash!

Garfield!

Minions!

Homer!

Marge!

Bart!

Lisa!

Kirby!

Finn and Jake!

Olaf!

Elsa!

Doraemon!

Hello Kitty!

While we reckon it’s a bit too much fuss to dye batter and decant it into teeny little bottles like that, we have to admit that this is awesome performance art. The intricate line detailing provides a really stunning reverse image. It seems that the artist draws his pancake detailing on a cold hot-plate first (otherwise he’d totally burn his sleeve and probably wind up with a bunch of charred little sticks…) before switching it on at the end and binding the image together into a cooked pancake. Pretty ingenious!

Game with schoolgirls and pheromones goes pervy to innocent with the Mom Just Walked In button

18:10 cherishe 0 Comments

GG 8

Video games designed to provide some titillation are nothing new in Japan. As a matter of fact, developers have been trying to include a little naughty excitement in titles for so long that the feature has begun to evolve and become streamlined in response to players’ needs and desires. For example, we recently looked at a game in which the designers thought to include a cycle by which the female characters change their panties to a new pair daily, much to the joy of realist perverts (and the chagrin of dirty underwear fetishists).

But while Japanese gamers have proven receptive to titles with a decidedly sexy angle, that doesn’t mean their parents are so accepting of their hobby. That’s why the upcoming PlayStation 4 game Gal Gun Double Peace includes not only more panty flashes than you can shake a stick at, but something called the Mom Just Walked In Screen to help spare players from getting caught in an embarrassing moment.

In the early days of light gun/rail shooter video games, the most common targets were uniformed soldiers from some hostile nation. As sensibilities changed during the 1990s and turn of the millennium, robots and zombies became common adversaries as well. But it wasn’t until Gal Gun came around in 2011 that there was a whole game structured around shooting schoolgirls. Don’t worry, though, the main character wasn’t pumping his anime-style classmates full of lead, but pheromones.

Gal Gun proved popular enough that developer Inti Creates and publisher Alchemist have created a sequel, Gal Gun Double Peace. The plot is basically the same as the first game: The main character, a high school student, is struck by an angel’s arrow, making him irresistible to women for exactly one day. However, if he doesn’t find his true love within that time, he’ll be alone forever once the arrow’s effect wears off, and so the race is on.

▼ In the game’s defense, even the preview video touts it as being “200 percent dumber than the original!”

Impeding the hero’s search for his soul mate are the hordes of other girls who are swarming him, and the player has to fend them off by firing pheromones at them until they go weak in the knees and stop chasing you (we’re guessing that getting rid of them by saying “Let’s just be friends” or showing them your closet full of pervy video games are features being saved for an eventual DLC pack). If you’re not quick enough on the trigger, possible outcomes include being handed a love letter, getting an unwanted hug and smooch, or being stepped on.

GG 3

Along the way, you run into potential girlfriends and apprentice demons. Oh, and also at least one shapely butt…

GG 1

…and a tentacle-y carrot monster.

GG 2

Then there’s the man character’s special ability to see through walls, and also the girls’ clothes, which rewards him with their measurements and cup size.

GG 4

But hey, you could make the argument that a fascination with the female body is perfectly healthy and normal for the young males of Gal Gun Double Peace’s target demographic, even if this isn’t necessarily the most normal way to scratch that itch. That said, it would still be a little awkward to have your mom walk in on you while you’re playing the game, which is why Inti Creates included the Mama Kita Gamen, or the Mom Just Walked In Screen.

For example, let’s say that the course of events have led you to a point where you’re about to get stepped on by a girl dressed in nothing but her bra, panties, and stockings.

GG 5

But oh no! Someone’s coming!

No problem. Hit the button for the Mom Just Walked In Screen, and suddenly the on-screen image switches to this:

GG 6

Instead of playing a brand-new sexy PlayStation 4 game, the Mom Just Walked In Screen puts up the front of what looks like an RPG from the tail-end of the 8-bit era. Those are even super deformed bitmapped versions of Gal Gun Double Peace’s primary cast of Hodai, Ekoro, Shinobu, and Maya. Just leave it on screen, put on a stoic expression like you’re plotting your next move until your mom leaves the room, and go back to firing phermones (you also might want to have an excuse in mind for when your mom asks why you’re sitting at home playig a 25-year-old game).

Gun Gal Double Peace’s opening

Gal Gun Double Peace comes out for the PlayStation 4 on August 6. There’s also a PlayStation Vita version being released the same day, but gamers should be aware it lacks the Mom Just Walked In Screen, so if you choose the handheld version, you might want to play it literally close to the chest.
