Japan’s newest electric car with tail fins, so it’s gotta be gr-r-reat!

Japan’s newest electric car with tail fins, so it’s gotta be great! (Ri‑i‑i‑ght.) doubting-emoticon ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶?

Besides having dubious/nonfunctional tail fins, I have to wonder why the SIM Drive electric vehicle has such a large radiator grille (shown right) since electric cars don’t need traditional radiators.
Refer to: jalopnik.com Why do all these electric-cars have grilles?

 
As much I am doubtful of this prototype, the latest iteration of the electric vehicle shown above does look more promising than the: New driving force for Japan (3Yen / 2012-03-02).

Go, go, GMO girl!

 
said-openI can’t help but think of Genetically Modified Organism when I see these posters every morning.said-closed

gmo for everyone

  

Despite what it looks like in these posters, Yuka Nakayama (中山由香) is not advertising genetically modified foods—She’s a genetically‑modified “campaign girl (girl model featured in an advertising campaign)” for a online foreign exchange brokerage, GMO CLICK Securities—”GMO” stands for Global Media Online.

Supposedly, GMO CLICK is Number 1 in the user-friendliness of their trading tools for FX beginners, but their TV commercials stress the value of Yuka Nakayama as GMO’s zombie fighting, go-go girl. (Note the transexual, gaijin zombie at the 56-second point of the video.)

Japan turns to ‘Wankernomics’

Mo’ betta than failing quoter leftAbenomicsquoter right (3Yen / 2013-12-24), Japan turns to ‘Wankernomics’—that is, damp-dreaming that anime freakazoids and otaku wankers somehow can boost a stagnant economy, ri-i-i-ight.

Japan turns to 'animenomics'
Nikkei.com | March 21, 2014
Japanese businesses and municipalities are turning to anime to create buzz
Nihonbashi is banking on this animation festival to bring it good fortune. The commercial district is considered the birthplace of Japanese popular culture. In the mid-1800s, famous ukiyo-e woodblock printing artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi was born in NihonbashiBack then, Nihonbashi was home to major ukiyo-e publishers, and a publishing center

Japan’s newest Stealth Fighter on 2-wheels

AKIRA
 
The real star of the Japanese animation classic, AKIRA (アキラ, 1988), was Kaneda’s hyper-scooter cycle (as you can see on the left). Over the years, many people have tried to duplicate the impossible engineering of the Akira bike.
I have written about a Akira-scooter lookalikes before, but it’s amazing to see that Honda has put the faux-AKIRAesque NM4 Vultus into full production rather than just going for one-off concept/show bike.

Honda’s Anime-Inspired Bike Is A Stealth Bomber On Two Wheels
jalopnik.com | 2014mar21
I have a hard time watching the 1988 Japanese sci-fi classic Akira without staring at Kaneda’s bike and thinking, “GOD, I need that thing in my LIFE.”
The NM4 Vultus packs a 745cc twin-cylinder engine mated to a dual clutch transmission with automatic or manual shift modes. They call it intuitive and easy to use with a low center of gravity and “future-shock style and stealth bomber silhouette”more blah, blah, blah….

The top photo shows the E7-Series Shinkansen/bullet train (Wiki) and the bottom is the “loose character”*, Burikatsu-kun, of Sado Island in Niigata Prefecture. Burikatsu is Japanese Yellow-tail that is a favorite fish that Niigata promotes with the expert loose help of their Burikatsu-kun mascot. Check out the Burikatsu-kun image collection and also his official website: burikatsu.com.
