The Legend of Funassyi 3-D Virtual Reality movie/theater - or, as most fans call it, Funassyi-G - got off to a great start yesterday, with a packed house for both shows. Funassyi and his co-star, TV personality Ruriko Kojima (aka Kojiruri) talked to the audience for a few minutes after the first showing. Physical gag comedian Nagano (on the left in the top photo), who is suddenly and inexplicably very hot right now after 20 years in the business, came dressed as “Nagassyi” and entertained the crowd too. The show itself seems to be great family entertainment, judging from comments in various places. Funassyi-G will be shown in Yokohama at the DMM Virtual Reality theater on Saturdays and Sundays until July 31st (details).
Here’s a video of the first part of Funassyi and Kojiruri’s talk. The MC is voice actress Saki Ono, who voiced one of the roles in Funassyi-G and was also the voice of Nyaossyi in the Funabiyori anime series.
Funassyi is off today for the press event at the Funassyi Beach House, which is not too far from Yokohama, where Funassyi-G is being shown.

15年6月29日、カップヌードルブランド初のパスタ「カップヌードル パスタスタイル」が発売されます。 麺は従来のカップヌードルと同じフライ麺ですが、パスタのように太くて丸いストレート麺。容器は、ブランド初の湯切りタイプです。 いったいどんな味なのか？？？実食してきました。また、発売の狙い、「スパ王」とのすみ分けなどについても聞いています。>>【実食】カップヌードル初の「パスタ」、“イタリア人が認めなかった”のも納得!?http://trendy.nikkeibp.co.jp/article/pickup/20150622/1065328/?n_cid=nbptrn_fb
A short history of Japan's long noodles | The Japan Times
Soba, udon and ramen noodles are all well-known outside of Japan, but sōmen — the thin, white wheat noodles that are similar to Italian angel hair pasta —
ETA: Actually this time the email writer was angry at me for 'stating the obvious', and saying 'MSG was evil' (which I actually didn't - I said 'if you are sensitive to it, as a few people are, it's not good....) But in any case, the article is now 8 years old, and it's still the one on Just Hungry that draws the most ire from several angles.
