\(^ ^ ) My name is Yuba. I'm a 23 year old teacher and freelance translator living in Tokyo, Japan. Sometimes I model. Sometimes I sleep. A lot of the time, I take photos of what I'm about to eat. Yum yum yum!

Saw this in the supermarket today and loved it. What a cute explanation of a venus fly-trap! They've called it something like a "fly-eat-a-saurus", and the little speech bubble on the left is saying, "I'm a crocodile-like fly-eating plant!" So cute. I wish it really did look like the drawings, though.

very cute
..but... is the plant new to the culture or area, or is it fashionable to be so cute?

I'd hate to think that any real person is so hard of thinking that they need such an explanation unless it was meant in jest...

Cute-ifying things in Japan goes way beyond fashion - it's more like it's just the culture, here.

But it's not entirely in jest, either. I've seen posters telling you to beware of perverts on the train that were just as simplified and cutesy.
