Be prepared for some local food humor
[Source: Scott Green of Ainititcool News] Food humor can be a bit local, so the April Fools' Day joke on the Kill La Kill site might not totally translate. The background you need to know is that konnyaku is a mostly tasteless gelatinous food that gives texture to dishes such as oden, made from a fibrous plant in the same family as taro. Here, it's been mixed with life fibers.
In the announcement, Honnoji Academy has introduced new Konnyaku with Life Fiber, created through a joint development with the Sanageyama Konnyaku company. This konnyaku tastes good for a change... and one more thing! It also works as a phone, complete with touch panel and the new operating system "sOS" developed by Honnoji Academy's own Shiro Iori.
