You just never know what the Japanese are going to come up with next. In this case, a game based on the upcoming anime, Sasameki Koto, has been made available for free on Apple’s online Store, most likely as a promotional vehicle for the anime. The game allows users to practice kissing the anime’s main character, Ushio Kazama, via the touch pad of the iPhone and iPod touch. Ushio will react according to the user’s skill at delivering the perfect kiss. The game is available in both Japanese and English. Suitable warnings are apparently in place about not kissing the touch pad with wet lips, which might make it “slippery”. Yeah, no kidding. One has to wonder though, who would be caught dead with an application like this?
Sasameki Koto is an anime adaptation of the manga of the same name by Takashi Ikeda. It’s a yuri manga, meaning girl-girl relations – just in case you didn’t know.
