Making "cute" characters out of the most disgusting insects is even stupider than a movie where a guy brings a [expletive] rat to help prepare his food and doesn't seem to worry about being shut down.

I'd act shocked, but nothing Japan makes surprises me any more.

Naoko Takeuchi had the cockroach girl theme FIRST!!! Wonder if the material is either inspired from what she did? Albeit the premise is probably WAAAAY different.

All right, somebody get me my bug spray, I'm gonna go to town on this ****er.

I guess I can sorta see where this is cute. But still that third picture posted by configspace made my skin crawl. If I had that in my window, it'd get the patented shoe squish.
