Has Japan Formally Declared War on Zombies?

Given that the US release of Japanese Anti-Zombie Game ‘Dead Rising 2′ is days away, the availability of this product in Japan comes as particularly disturbing news:

“Zombie Meat,” an exquisite new Japanese snack for the horror enthusiast, consists of bite-sized chunks of tender blue flesh that, according to the package, has been aged to deadly perfection at the graveyard.

Zombie Meat? I’m assuming this is a horrible joke and not actual Zombies, dry-aged and then chopped up and placed in bags to be sold at Tokyo convenience stores, but still…

The ghastly meat snack, which tastes remarkably like peppered beef jerky, can be found at select shops in Japan for 399 yen (about $4.50) per pack.

At this point I think we need to seriously consider the question of whether Japan, as a nation, has a vicious anti-Zombie bias. Zombies are poorly treated around the world, but Japan has taken the lead in recent years, going above and beyond even the United States in its demagoguery against the Differently Animated. Videogames, movies, anime, comics, all glorifying the persecution of the Undead, and now even simulated (we sincerely hope) Zombie Meat?

What horrible insult to the Differently Animated will come out of that atavistic archipelago next? Perhaps a Zombie Apocalypse theme park where you get to kill (again hopefully) simulated Zombies? Maybe you could have discounts for the youngsters, get them into the murder and hate early. Under 12 year sold, half off!

Man. Japan needs to look deep within its national heart and consider whether this is what they want to be known for in the years to come. This ugliness is a stain upon their national character, and they should be appalled.

    Ah, I misread that. I read it as meat FOR zombies, not meat OF zombies. Who would want to eat the meat OF zombies?

    Apparently Japanese consumers, or such is the fervent hope of these gruesome snack merchants.

    One can only hope it is merely beef with food coloring (or perhaps the usual hotdog grab bag of rat, zebra and slaughterhouse refuse). It would be a crime against Zombie Humanity otherwise.

  3. This weblog is basically superb, I assumed I do know a lot, but I’m so mistaken, like the previous saying the far more you already know, the added you obtain out how little you know. Thanks for the info.

    The jury is still out.
