Discussion – Cosplaying: An Art that Lacks Freedom

Mahou Tofu

Introduction

If you are visiting our site, then you probably have no issue with cosplaying. In fact, I suspect that you either enjoy it or you want to try it out in the near future. I appreciate cosplay myself and I would like to pull one off at the next Fanime Con. Unfortunately, something that should be fun is full of a lot of unwarranted judgement. The general populace definitely sees cosplayers as a bunch of freaks. I use these harsh terms because convention goers know what can happen once you leave the convention floor to grab food or swing by your hotel. “The crazy people are back in town.” That is something that you can hear more often than you should. What is even worse? The convention floor itself isn’t even a safe haven for cosplayers. People are subject to ridicule if they happen to not fit the body…

RocketNews24

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 3.16.58 AMFloresta isn’t as well known as the big chain stores in Japan like Mister Donut or Krispy Kreme, but their “nature doughnuts” deserve all the attention they can get. As a company, Floresta strives to provide customers with healthy, yet satisfying snacks, using organic local ingredients with no additives or preservatives. They are also careful to reduce waste that can have a negative impact on the environment. You would think a healthy doughnut might taste like cardboard, but Floresta manages to serve up delicious rings of environmentally friendly goodness. They also make animal doughnuts that will make you want to buy out the store.

Yogurt drink explodes, leaves man with bruising, internal bleeding and possible loss of eyesight

Yogurt is a fairly healthy food, we’d say. A lot of what you buy at the store might have bit too much sugar in it, but at least it’s not a candy bar, right? And yogurt drinks seem equally healthy in our estimation. Again, it’s got to be better than having a Mega Gulp Mountain Dew.

Unless…your yogurt drink explodes and nearly breaks your face, that is.

Denny’s Japan to serve up burgers with added microorganisms… for your health!

RocketNews24

It would appear that Japan is getting more and more firmly entrenched in the euglena craze. These little algae (particularly those from Ishigaki Island) have been determined to pack a nutritious punch carrying around 59 different kinds of nutrients from vitamins and minerals to amino acids.

We recently sampled these little guys in a cup of delicious yogurt, which was creepy at first but not a big leap since yogurt is all bacteria-y anyway. But would the public also go for these little microorganisms being added to a patty of grilled red meat? American diner chain Denny’s is wagering “yes” with their euglena hamburgs only available in Japan from the end of this month.
