Goodness! Just when you thought unusual sushi couldn't get any more, well, unusual, there's this: Caramel banana sushi. Starting tomorrow, conveyor belt sushi chain Kura is offering it in Japan.

Remember, sushi rice is made with vinegar. Caramel is sweet. Then, there are bananas to contend with. All at once. In your mouth.

This is very unusual. I think it's odd, you think it's odd, and you bet many people in Japan think it's odd. "This looks awful," wrote one commenter on GirlsChannel. "No way would I eat this." (On other forums, however, there have been a handful of Japanese commenters who seem keen.)

As Kotaku previously covered, Kura is the same sushi chain that offered chocolate sauce banana sushi. Bananas, indeed.

Being on an extremely strict diet for the past two-to-three months eating nothing but oatmeal in the morning and some tuna post-workout, I'd probably fucking eat anything.

If you're wondering when It'll end, I'm putting some double-time efforts to reach my target at June 9th.

Yep, E3.

I'll have a day of resting, watching streams, and eating a shit ton of food. It'll be one glorious fucking day.
