LOOK OUT! There’re giant mutant kids with gojira on the loose…
…Godzilla, Fukushima vegetables, and Japanese children are are all mutating at increasingly alarming rates if Korean Netcitizens are to be believed.
According to Den4, the 3Yen’s correspondent at large, Let’s mutant panicking!

Giant alien slug invades Japan… again
…Japan is currently under threat by Limax Maximus: a giant slug with a distinctive leopard-print skin…can be found increasing at an alarming rate.
As Japanese netizens read the headline, almost unanimously, comments of “It’s Eleking!” echoed like the horrific memories of the nation’s previous encounters with alien slugs…Although, Ultraman had defeated Eleking…it returned several times…more…
Eleking (Wiki) is, of course, a space kaiju/monster from the Japanese TV series, Ultra Seven, and who then reappeared in the series Ultraman Taro ← (Hey, “Taro” is my name!).
Japan’s version of the Barbie doll, Rika-chan aka Licca-chan aka has hooked up with the Hula Girls of Fukushima Prefecture, which is better known for Fukushima nuclear disaster (Wiki).
According to MANTANWEB (2013Jun15 — Google Translate): A life-size Licca-chan shows off her dancing with the Hula Girls.
As shown in the photos above, a life-size Licca-chan dances the hula at new product presentation “International Tokyo Toy Show” at Tokyo Big Site convension center.
MANTANWEB news goes on to explain that Takara Tommy Toy Company has launched a new Licca-chan dress-up doll in collaboration with the “Spa Resort Hawaiians” leisure facilities of Fukushima, which obviously is having trouble attracting customers to their triple-cursed prefecture that was ravaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown of 2011 (Wiki).
This radioactive Rika-chan hula doll is sort of fitting because Licca-chan dolls have also spawned a long-running urban legend amongst Japanese high school students called the curse of the “Three Legged Licca-chan.”
The legend goes that if a girl enters a toilet at her school, and finds a Rika-chan doll on the floor with a purple third leg, she will lose one of her own legs shortly after. She can then grow a purple leg, that is not functional, which will eventually take over her body, causing death (Wiki).

Beware of falling alien space debris…
In the aftermath of the mega-earthquake/tsunami disaster of 3/11 (March 11, 2011), it’s the Fukushima nuclear meltdown continues to cause, by far the largest discharge of radioactivity into the ocean ever seen*.
However, at least few Japanese like the street artist, 281_Anti-Nuke, are keeping up the fight against the radioactive Forces of Darkness.

In celebration of its “Golden Week” national holiday (3Yen / 2006-05-04), Japan has decided to re-start (japandailypress.com / 2013-03-24) all its unrepaired and failing nuclear reactors…

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR* AGAIN!
On the plate are “l’il Cthulhu”—bioluminescent Firefly Squid who normally live with Cthulhu’s Deep Ones†, but once a year waves push them to the surface in Japan’s Toyama Bay from March to June. YUM!

Bow before my trouser snake!
The Straw Snake at the top shows a fun Japanese local tradition that requires getting “bitten” for luck. According to the Asahi News–Fukushima | Jan. 07, 2012, every January 7th, the kids of the Aizu district stop at houses and have the straw snake bite the head of the household to pray for health, prosperity, ample rain and a rich harvest. About 15 children under the age of 13 parade around the village carrying a 7 meter long straw snake that weighs about 30 kg. The Aizu district is in Fukushima Prefecture (home of the infamous nuclear power plant meltdown).
Throughout Asia, 2012 is the Year of the Snake (HebiNoGonenshi) making the straw snake’s bite especially auspicious even though the concentration of radioactive Cesium-137 of the rice straw in the Aizu district is 2,200 becquerels/kg (Japan’s provisional safety limit is 500 becquerels/kg set by the national government—EXSKF blog).
Learn more about the Straw Snake parade at the website of Aizu Misato-cho’s Office of Tourism (Google Translate). View additional photos the straw snake at Yahoo News and Asahi.com.
Put on your tin-foil geisha hats (see right) and wonder if a WWII-era ‘Tsunami Bomb’ was finally tested causing Japan’s Great Cataclysm of March 11, 2011…
‘Tsunami bomb’ tested off New Zealand coast
telegraph.co.uk | 01 Jan 2013
The tests were carried out in waters around New Caledonia and Auckland during the Second World War and showed that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 large offshore blasts could potentially create a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating a small city.
The top secret operation, code-named “Project Seal”, tested the doomsday device as a possible rival to the nuclear bomb…blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a “tsunami bomb”…more…
