Sounds like cream croquette which the Japanese have been making for decades.

It's probably delicious.

That looks delicious.

I read that as deep fried soap, which doesn't sound delicious at all

You can get these at any buffet across America as fried cream corn nuggets...if you dare wander into those waste lands of soulless humanity that are known as Golden Corral.

It's better than nasty croquette.

Came here to say this. I just bought some at the grocery store today.

Living here for 3 years already, and damn to Japanese people love their corn potage.

One can of that and another of onion potage out of a vending machine has saved me from a hangover more than once.

I read in some book for a Japanese culture class that they put corn on pizza, had T-shirts and signs that said "Let's Sex" or "Let's Skiing" because some quirk of grammar, and that the concept of dating an establishment (i.e. "Since 1999")  was to give an impression of being new rather than being old.

These all seemed too strange to be perfectly true.  Is there any merit to these claims that you have seen?

Yes, and far much odder stuff than you can possibly imagine. I love it.

BTW, your login sounds Japanese, but violates Japanese phonetic rules. Where's it from?

(one of the current items that sits as a "common fixture in Japanese cafes" is a creamy soup corn potage.)

I think they just really like corn; they put it on pizza.

I haven't looked into the reasons, but I've definitely seen all of that.

A guy at the izakaya I go to has a motorcycle painting shop and he wanted an English translation for a stick for his shop. He wanted me to translate 「今からずっと」. So I told him a couple. Then I told him that that translation reminded me of "To infinity and beyond" from Toy Story. Even after explaining everything, he still wanted to use that.

Well, You've just asked for a cool story, bro.

It's named after the character Tetsuo Shima from Akira.  The problem was that when I used to sign up for accounts, the name was always taken, so I just switched the "u" and "o" not realizing that it was phonetically impossible in Japanese.  Back in 1995 when I started using it for hotmail or whatever I had at the time, nobody seemed to notice or care.  As I've gotten older, I've 'met' more and more people online who actually speak Japanese and the mistake simply draws attention to the fact that I didn't know what I was talking about in high school, as if that was ever in question.  In any case, even if the proper spelling were to be available on a given website or forum, I would use my improper form since I don't think I could train my hands to type the letters correctly after all these years.

Thanks for the explanation; I'd been wondering for awhile.

Mine's similar; 'agrajag' had been taken, so I went for that Nordic flavour.

I believe there are chip shops in Glasgow, Scotland that serve deep fried vitamin water.


/I lied about the vitamin part; it's just water. It's Scotland, after all

Thank the Portuguese missionaries who introduced the deep frying cooking method to the Japanese. Tempura is a very appropriate kind of food for the humid and hot Japanese environment. This makes me proud as a Roman Catholic.

My first thought: "Deep fried soup? Sounds like something they would do at KFC, where they would deep fry their salads if they could, too..."

Then I clicked.

Google Translate says: "Far from now". I think that's how far it then on the Kessel Run.

Koreans are big on the corn as a pizza topping, too.  I don't mind it the way I do the sweet potato mush.
