Isn't that.... interesting?
I'm surprised that a japanese company didn't come up with this earlier. But then again it doesn't have that same bit of word play in japanese right?

That sort of thing would be strictly amateur-hour stuff for those guys. After all, the Japanese already have soda cans that turn into girls. Wink

I think fail comes in more flavors than we want to/need to know about.

Did anyone else get confused about the title of this article and think it had something to do with the OVA series of the same name?

I've had that once. We cooked a canned ham in pineapple slices and juice. After it was done cooking we used the liquid as a sauce. We still had an overabundance, so we tried drinking it straight. It was good for the first couple of sips, before you developed diabetes.

On one page they used the phrase..

This is just so... wonderfully awful. I can't help but lulz a bit. -facepalm lulz-

Also, the 'anime-style' character looks almost more like a grown up Power Puff girl than an actual anime character, which makes it even funnier. I'd liked to see them expand to Elder God Sacrifice Elixir or Cthulhu Cephalopod Cherry. (Lovecraft is public domain after all.)

Funny. I just picked up a book on ammonites and cephalopod fossils and ancient giant tentacled beasts. Been a fan since I saw 20,000 Leagues as a kid.
