Title correction:

× Ig Nobel wa Gas Mask ni Narundesu ka?
○ Ig Nobel: Brassiere wa Gas Mask ni Narundesu ka? or Ig Nobel: Buraja wa Gas Mask ni Narundesu ka?

Well, that's definitely a contender for most out-of-left-field manga/anime premise. Don't think I've ever seen the Ig Nobel Prizes referenced in anything else.

Given how they operate, the manga itself may end up getting some sort of award from them in real life. In any case, "can you use a bra as a gas mask" is exactly the type of study that can win one of those "prizes," so they've got that part down.

The Ig Nobels are a lot of fun, and Japanese scientists have won it for at least 10 years in a row! https://www.forbes.com/sites/prossermarc/2016/09/26/10-years-10-prizes-japanese-scientists-scoop-ig-nobel-prize-for-bending-over/

Real-life winners have earned the award for, say, using roller coasters to help pass kidney stones faster or measuring the cause and effects of yelling and swearing while driving.


Real life winners also include a literal bra that turns into a gas mask (in..... 2009).
