The idea of a Pikachu bento box may seem cute in concept, and a simple pork cutlet shaped like Japan’s favorite rat Pokemon would be a must-have for any bento artist. However, an online Korean market recently began selling Pikachu themed cutlets, and the results have been more questionable than cute. Available for 9000 won (US$8.20) on Gmarket, many Japanese food stalls have adopted them for tourists and residents to snack on on their way home from work or just walking around town.

Below is a tweet from Korean pop band Super Junior’s member, Shindong, eating a Pikachu cutlet.
