Japanese web-comic stars a cute, panty-flashing girl…who is also a cigarette

Some day in the distant future, some type of intelligent alien life form will buzz past our planet in their highly advanced space ships and may decide to use their enormous, pulsating, telepathic brains to perform a quick scan of its inhabitants and cultures. They will no doubt be pleased to learn that our video games are just the greatest, and that we have devices that fill bananas with liquid chocolate. They will be saddened by our constant war and conflict and the Star Wars prequels.

Then, they will scan over Japan, with its bizarrely muscled figurines and its increasingly outrageous manga – such as this one that features a character who is a living cigarette modeled after a beautiful young woman – and go, “lolwut?” and speed off into the stars, yelling “NEEEEERRRDS” out the window of their space cruiser.

Japanese pro-wrestler wrangles love doll during 30-minute rumble【Video】

You’ve probably heard of, or possibly engaged in, a little “wrestling in the bedroom”, but what happens when you bring the bedroom to the ring? If you imagined a wrestling match between Japanese professional wrestler Kota Ibushi and a sex doll, let us offer you this video as an award.

It’s an encounter every bit as epic as you can imagine, and if you don’t do anything else all day, we urge you to grab some popcorn and tune in for some rough-and-tumble, rib-busting action (and we apologize in advance if you were looking for some other kind of action, but ended up on RocketNews24 by mistake).

Japanese curry commercial is the weirdest thing you’ll see all week, make you cry lasers【Video】

Every once in a while a commercial comes along that so accurately deconstructs the human condition that it’s hard for any of us to not cry lasers over it. There was that one time Intel showed us the harrowing tale of a young boy whose friend was dying of cancer, and that Toyota one about a father and daughter? Well, I darn near vaporized my cat while watching that one.

Now, noodle giant Nissin and their White Curry Meshi (rice) bring us a spot titled “Sorrow of Wasteland“, which tells the story of desperate struggle between two men who were once friends. Get your tissues and ruby-quartz glasses out for this one, folks!

Japanese comedian shares hilarious “magical poses” that make you look like you’re naked【Video】

If you sit down to watch Japanese TV during the evening, you’ll be inundated with talk shows filled with celebrity antics, riotous laughter and an array of stand-up comedians.

While the majority of comedians like to poke fun at each other with puns and verbal gags commonly seen in traditional straight-man/funny-man manzai routines, others like to get a laugh by simply taking their gear off. That’s the route chosen by Tonikaku Akarui Yasumura, whose known around Japan for appearing onstage in nothing but a skimpy thong and a number of hilarious “magical poses” that make him look like he’s completely naked.

Now Yasumura is set to conquer the world, by enthusiastically sharing his ‘naked’ poses in several new videos with explanations in various languages, including English. With tricks you can try at home or in an inebriated state at a party, “Don’t worry, I’m wearing” is the next new thing from Japan everyone will be talking about!

Farting sheep set plane’s alarm bells ringing during flight to Malaysia

We all have different ways of getting through long flights, like settling down for some inflight entertainment, reading a good book, or possibly trolling fellow passengers. But one thing everyone tries not to think about is what might happen if the plane were to suddenly experience an emergency while thousands of feet up in the air.

For one unlucky group of passengers last month, they experienced just that, and for what might be the strangest reason we’ve heard yet: some very gassy sheep.
