This Is "Tank Sushi"

And it kind looks like a tank. Well, one covered with dead fish. It does. See?

The world has already seen battleship sushi (here), and now, here is "sensha sushi" (戦車寿司), or "tank sushi".

As pointed out by Naver, a sushi restaurant called Kurisakiya began offering a tank sushi in honor of Japanese anime Girls und Panzer.

The military girls anime is set in the town of Oarai in Ibaraki Prefecture, which is where Kurisakiya is located. Thus, tank sushi!

Girls und Panzer features real Oarai locations, and that helps create local tourism: Anime fans often like visiting real-world locales featured in their favorite cartoons.

Kurisakiya is obviously hoping to cash in (the front of the sushi restaurant has a big Girls und Panzer sign, for example). And let's hope the sushi restaurant does cash in!

This is rather creative. Hopefully, tasty, too.
