So writes the 3Yen’s correspondent-at-large, Den4, who spotted this ominous report today about the Deep Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos* from to less that Japan’s esteemed national broadcaster, NHK.

Ohi No.3 reactor reaches full capacity
NHK WORLD English | Jul. 8, 2012 – 16:42
The nuclear reactor was restarted on July first after being shut down for maintenance that lasted 15 months….the electric generator at the No.3 reactor at the Ohi nuclear plant Fukui Prefecture reached 100-percent power output of 1.18 million kilowatts on Saturday.
On Sunday afternoon, a swarm of jellyfish prevented sea water from being absorbed to cool the reactor. Kansai Electric was forced to reduce the power output, but went ahead with the work as scheduled when the amount of jellyfish recededmore...

The first thing I thought when I saw this NHK report was, “WTF, NOT AGAIN!?”
The 3Yen reported about jellyfish attacks on Japanese nuclear power plants several times in the past few years:
deep ones stir
(3Yen /2011-07-10 )
Jellyfish attack Japanese nuke plant!
(3Yen / 2011-06-25)
Killer jellyfish invade Japan’s seas
(3Yen / 2008-02-09)
(3Yen / 2006-07-20)

  3. Jellyfish Clog Up Japan’s Nuclear Restart

    the jellyfish attack…sparked a rush of humorous commentary …DVICE, a website for technological news, on July 11 posted an article entitled “Millions killed in jellyfish anti-nuke protests,” referring to the jellyfish that were killed at the Oi plant…on Twitter and 2 channel, Japan’s largest online bulletin board, with many posters claiming the jellyfish as ally in the anti-nuke movement.
    white space is good for the soul “Algae and jellyfish are scarier than the anti-nuclear forces. They will take action” (July 14, Twitter, xmmm)
    “The jellyfish came to the reactors because of the restart, right? Restart -> hydrothermal venting -> jellyfish come together” (July 18, Twitter, doki_doki_panic)
    “No matter how many times we do demonstrations, they won’t stop the nuclear reactors, but an influx of jellyfish will make them stop” (July 8, Twitter, chorusson)
    “Mother nature is mad” (July 8, 2 Channel, Bombay)
    “We shouldn’t rely on jellyfish. What humans created, humans have to stop.” (July 8, Togetter, mouse_mole)
    “The jellyfish that threw themselves at the reactor… may they rest in peace” (July 8, Togetter, katsura_moshino)
