This Artist Renders Your Favorite Fast Food Mascots into Adorable Anime Characters

Our obsession with fast food just intensified, because now we absolutely can’t stop picturing them as these anime characters with intersecting story lines.

Artist Ozumii has reimagined our favorite fast food mascots as anime characters with relatable and over the top personalities that make you want to believe that’s how they are in real life.

Starbucks

While the Starbucks siren does not have a name, we’d like to think she’s a little more spritely than your average barista on a busy Monday morning.

Jack in the Box

Oh so that’s what Jack looks like when he’s not a total egghead!  I can totally get used to seeing this guy waking up his subordinates at ridiculous hours of the morning to bounce his brunch menu ideas off of.

Burger King

We prefer the more animated, bolder-voiced King of Burgers  ruling on a French fry throne over the creepy mute, masked one appearing in the current commercials.

Hamburglar

Now THIS looks like a guy who would steal all your meat without remorse or mercy.  Not this guy:

KFC

Bruh… The Colonel is yolked!  I guess that fried chicken diet is ‘doubling down’ on his gains.  I wouldn’t want to mess with him in the ring.


via GIPHY

Wendy’s & McDonalds

This love/hate or brother/sister OTP is hard to get over.  They’re just like us: fighting over what to eat, dismissing each other’s affection and trash talk.

How To Make Your Own Edible Dragon Balls At Home [WATCH]

I’m a huge fan of the anime Dragon Ball and all its following sequels. Yes, even Dragon Ball GT. There’s something magical about traveling the world collecting relics to summon a dragon that grants wishes.

If you’re not a fan of the great outdoors, but you still want to get that wish, you can now make your own Dragon Balls right at home.

All you need is some dry gelatin powder and strawberry jelly powder as well as a few molds and cutters.

Check out the video by Monster Kids for the complete recipe, in detail. Seriously, we don’t even think the great dragon Shenron could tell the difference between these and the real thing.

McDonald’s Anime Commercial Is Actually Kind Of Beautiful

McDonald’s International has been knocking it out of the park with their latest batch of commercials. One that’s been trending across the Internet comes from Japan. This commercial’s entirely animated.

Set in the style of Japanese Anime, the commercial narrates the experiences of a young girl starting her job at the fast food restaurant. It utilizes beautiful stills that make working at McDonald’s look kind of magical.

According to RocketNews24, the commercial follows college student Sumire as she begins a part-time job at McDonald’s. Mentored by fellow student Ikumi, the experience is told through a whimsical montage that incorporates breathtaking animation of life at the burger joint.

This Restaurant Serves Hot Pot With A Side Of Dragon Balls

Dragonball-Nabe

Typically, it takes years (even decades) to collect the seven Dragon Balls. If you’re dining at Japan’s Danke Dinning, however, expect to find them all in your hot pot.

Based on the beloved anime series, the restaurant serves seven orange balls made of collagen jelly with little pieces of carrot cut into stars inside. They’re call the dish Dragon Ball Nabe, Kotaku reports.

Nabe, also known as hot pot, features uncooked meat and vegetables in a seasoned broth that’s boiled to the customers’ preference. It’s typically served a dipping sauce.

The magical dish has garnered the restaurant some media attention. Though sources say there has yet to be an appearance from Shenron.

Unfortunately, the only wish these gelatinous balls will grant you is a full stomach. Unless you’re sharing.

Sailor Moon Tortilla Chips Are the Perfect Snack for Fighting Evil by Moonlight

sailor moon chips

Your favorite Sailor Scouts just got snackified.

Japanese snack company, Koikeya, has teamed up with the Sailor Moon franchise to create Sailor Senshi-themed tortilla chips. Japan is known for its unique palate when it comes to snacks, so it’s not too surprising that this inner senshi-licious lineup features flavors such as Avocado Cream Cheese, Bagna Cauda (an Italian hot dip made of butter, garlic and anchovies) and Balsamico Grilled Pork.

The tortilla chip packaging will feature the latest reboot of the 20-year-old anime, Sailor Moon Crystal, and features each of the five scouts and Tuxedo Mask. Collectors, this means there’s a total of 18 bags that you can try to get your hands on.

With over 200 episodes, 18 volumes of manga and new Sailor Moon Crystal episodes premiering every other week, we’re sure these themed snacks are the perfect way to watch your Sailor Moon and eat it too.

Cheeseburger Super Mario, Sailor Moon, and Batman Are Super Chubs, Super Adorable

cheeseburger-cartoons

It’s true, there’s no real reason to reimagine all our childhood heroes as adorably chubby cheeseburgers. But then, there’s no real reason not to, either.

In his latest series “What if They Were Cheeseburgers?,” San Diego, Calif.-based illustrator Philip Tseng shows us what it would look like if cartoon characters from Sailor Moon to Skeletor even to the Morton Salt Girl decided to trade their internal skeletons for cheeseburgers — buns, tomatoes, and all.

The drawings, as you might expect, are delightful and pill-like, reminiscent of the minions from Despicable Me, and all available on Tseng’s shop at society6.com.

On another note: so that’s what’s inside R2-D2.

Sailor Moon Brooch Cookies Have Stained Glass Gems

MOON. COOKIE. POWERRRR!

Unfortunately these cookies won’t transform you into a Sailor Scout (aw WHAT?!)  but they will satisfy your nostalgic sweet tooth. Crafted by a pretty creative tumblr user, these stained glass cookies are simple to make, provided you have some patience and a love for the Moon Princess.

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 10.10.31 PM

Using a printed image as a template to recreate these cookies is as easy as tracing a picture… just with a knife (so be careful, kids!) After all that’s said and done, grab favorite red-tinted hard candies, crush ’em up and fill in the gaps. Personally I’m a fan of jolly ranchers but to each their own. You’ll have Sailor Moon Brooch Cookies faster than you can say “Moon tiara magic!”

If you want to really nail these cookies try adding some yellow food color to your sugar cookie dough to get that golden hue of Serena’s transformation brooch.
