Thank you to everyone that came to our joint Kites Day event with DC! It's safe to say we

CULTURE

 

Golden Week is coming up! Japan's most well-known week of holidays includes Showa 
Day (29th April), Constitution Day (3th May), Greenery Day (4th May) and of course, 
Children's Day (5th May)! If some of you were around last year you should remember 
that JASS also celebrated Greenery Day as an ode to Golden Week (´・ω・`) 

Read up on the significance of each holiday!


FUN

 

On the topic of Sushi Night, wouldn't it be great if we could all have our own Sushi Bazooka??!!
Strictly speaking, this isn't made in Japan, but I think the sheer novelty and also usefulness 
of this contraption makes it worthy enough for this section! If we ever have enough JASS 
funds, you know what we'll be investing in ;D

 

Be blown away by this sushi masterpiece!
 

WTF


Japan has a soft spot for releasing strange dating sims, but I think this one knocks it out
of the park. Jun’ai Babaa Gakuen ~ Tenkousei wa 100man sai follows the lives of 4 
adorable grannies who are all for some reason a) 1 million years old, b) have the voice of a 
5 year old, c) look like the Hulk and d) aren't actually adorable at all. It's now available on
iOS and Android devices so play it if you dare! 

Once seen, you can't un-see it!

 

 

J-Movie Recommendation - Parasyte: Part 1

As many avid anime and manga fans would know, Parasyte was recently adapted into 
a 2 part live action movie series. The movie follows Shinichi Izumi (Shota Sometani) and 
the parasite Migi that has taken residence in his right hand as they join forces to battle 
other parasites they discover in their city. As with most manga to movie adaptations, 
there were a couple of holes in the adaptation that deducted from the story and the experience, 
such as the lack of emotional attachment the viewer has towards Shinichi and his 
mother's relationship. Their attempt to fit half of the manga series into less than 2 hours 
was a worrying thought and while it does not live up to the original, it is an enjoyable 
stand-alone film and has a good mix of drama, action and CGI body-horror. There is one 
scene in a restaurant that is particularly gruesome, which was exciting as this series 
wouldn't be what it is without the gore and violence. If you've never read or seen this series 
before, this movie may be a good watch for you!

 

Until next time,

Vivian
