While snow cones never really caught on in Japan, the country sure does love shaved ice. It’s easy to see why, since every summer brings soaring temperatures and high humidity, and a bowl of shaved ice is a refreshing way to cool off. Add a dash of brightly-colored syrup, and you’ve got a low-calorie, wholesome treat.
At least, it’s usually wholesome. Put a group of creepy anime fans in charge of serving shaved ice though, and you can count on them to find a way to make it pretty disgusting.
Two ways, actually. (Potentially NSFW pics after the jump)
