Fortunately I wasn't drinking from my mug o' tea, that stuff is hot and I'd have been spewing it.

Anime News Nina once had a strip which featured an anthropomorphic pistachio and air-conditioner. It was at that moment I thought with a chuckle, "This is probably going to be the weirdest human-like representation animoo I see.".

And yet, here we are.

It is hard not to laugh, or just shake my head, but this is a very serious project that could save some lives

Anything that motivates people to get the screening is a good thing.

Oh, come on... By now we should be aware enough not to get surprised by things like this from Japan. Or have you forgotten Gokicha!!? Wink

Reminds me a bit of Parasistence Sana, a manga about human tapeworms (Kisei Kanojo Sana, no ANN entry). Wonder what a cross-over would look like?... Razz

Have we all forgotten Moyashimon already? It even had a gut-bacteria microbe-theater episode, I think, featuring e coli O152 (I think food poisoning was an aspect of the main episode).

Anyway, the Moyashimon manga, at least, had a bit to say about healthy gut bacteria ecology.

At least Twilight of the Cockroaches mentally prepared me for Gokicha!! That being said, you're not wrong.

And that's the last time you're going hear Twilight of the Cockroaches referenced for a long time.

There's a difference between giving a bacteria cell a cute little face and personifying it, and anthropomorphizing it to look "moe-moe kyun".

How true is this! If you thought this was weird, I saw a Oct. 23 Sankaku Complex article about an adult toy that's a bottle that recreates the smell of a high school girl's crap that you can wear on clothes or underwear
