Limited run of commemorative Ed Sheeran sake on sale from 8 April

The perfect collaboration for Ed’s fans and alcoholics, or is it for alcoholic Ed Sheeran fans? Nah Put up a record of him and sip slowly from a tiny cup of this delicious sake…it’s paradise!

Although it’s sure to make one scratch their head at first, it actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Sheeran frequently mentions his tendency to tie one on with friends, and the sake industry is constantly trying to reach out to a more diverse crowd, namely younger people and women.

So, as Sheeran’s unique blend of folk-soul-pop returns to Japan on the Divide World Tour 2019, Konshi Brewing in Hyogo Prefecture decided the time was right to release Ed Sheeran Sake.

First, there’s the Ed Sheeran Junmai Ginjo sake which is a finely-produced beverage using only the purest ingredients, resulting in a mellow yet slightly crisp flavor with a tangy aromatic tinge, not unlike the hit “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You.” Speaking of which, the bottle is colored with the same orange as Sheeran’s breakout album +.

However, this is a standard sake, and as such has a relatively high alcohol content at around 15 percent. If you’d like something lighter and bubblier along the lines of “Shape of You,” then you may want to try a bottle of Ed Sheeran Sparkling Sake.

With only a 10 percent ABV, this carbonated sake comes in a blue labeled bottle using the same shades as his ÷ album (pronounced “divide”). Both bottles are also decorated with drawings of little cat paws that Konshi says belong to Sheeran’s own pet feline.

Each type is limited to 3,000 bottles and go on sale at AEON shopping centers across Japan from 8 April. They’re slightly on the pricey side at 2,000 yen (US$18) for a 720-milliliter (24-ounce) bottle, but it’s still low enough to take the plunge and pick one up. I mean, how often does a chance to score some Ed Sheeran sake come along?

Ever wanted to drink a busty anime girl’s sweat? These tea bags can make that dream come true

Sipping a hot cup of tea can be an enjoyable way to relax and put your brain on auto-pilot for a few minutes. Waiting for your tea bag to steep, though, can be downright dull. Sitting there, staring at the bag’s string and tab, you might find yourself wishing for a view, and if your preferred view is a pair of large anime breasts, this Japanese company would be happy to oblige.

Muku is a design firm based in Niigata, with a specialization in manga, anime, and video game content. According to Muku’s website, its newest brainchild, the Beautiful Girl T Bag, is “a product born from the pure desire of wanting to drink a beautiful girl’s sweat,” which we guess isn’t quite as gross as some other bodily fluids, but is still pretty far in the corner of the fetish bell curve.

The Beautiful Girl T Bag’s unorthodox spelling is almost certainly to evoke thoughts of T-back panties, as “bag” and “back” are written almost identically in Japanese (bag/バッグ vs. back/バック). Muku’s promotional image, though, shows a deeper appreciation for the upper half of the female form.

If you’re thinking you don’t recognize that character from any titillation-heavy anime or video games, that’s because Beautiful Girl T Bag is still in its planning stages, and that’s just a proof of concept mockup. Muku is currently looking for creative partners who’d like to license their characters for use. The tea itself will be procured from “a top-class tea provider in the Kanto region [east Japan],” with the finished products being sold at local events or national anime specialty store chains.

Muku is also looking into the prospect of crowdfunding production, so keep an eye on the company’s website and Twitter account if your cup of tea is looking a little lonely without a busty anime girl in it.
