Right now, McDonald’s is carrying Pokémon toys. Square Enix has been heavily pushing Gyrozetter and plan to release a Nintendo 3DS game in spring 2013. Fun fact: you can get small pancakes and sweet corn with your Happy Set in Japan instead of a cheeseburger and fries.

    Why does Japan’s happy meal seem healthier than ours? …>_>

    • $24431191

      because of animu

    • Having anime characters in happy meal instantly makes it healthier?
      Hey actually considering how ridiculously thin many of them are it might hold some truth!

      • neocatzon

        thin? not thin, just Asian.

  • gRiMmYdArK13

    It even sounds yummy! Wish we could have something like that

  • I think the preview image is off? :D ehe
    I still need to get hip to this anime/game, it looks nice!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    all we get is crap movie/TV show toys,Ba Da BaBaBa Not Loving it

    • Hollowkoopa

      You do know this is promoting a game and a anime just like any other happy meal toy.

  • Hm. I guess having some cards that are actually usable on the arcade machines could motivate kids to try the game. Not a bad plan, actually.

    The characters still look as standard as the Shonen “collectibles” formula goes though. The spiky-haired active boy protagonist; love interest with heal/support abilities; another boy that’s a bit taller, cooler and more suave than the protagonist; the “bulky powerhouse” friend; even the Professor Exposition.

    • LynxAmali

      Believe it or not, the Prof ain’t Exposition.

      That’s from the Tomakazu Seki-voced Mic-Man, Seki.

      • I thought Professor Claude is voiced by Nakata Jōji.

        • LynxAmali

          He is.
          I was referring to the character himself.

          The prof is just ham. Pure. Ham.

  • Junko Enoshima

    Can you import Happy Meals from Japan?

    • Or contact some proxy sellers to get a couple of Happy Meals and have only the included cards shipped? That would be an unorthodox use of their services, admittedly.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Touma doesnt get one? lol poor guy. They also should have had Inaba do her Ina Bauer! I want Kakeru and Shuunsukes, actually they ought to have had Eraser’s too, professor/commander really isnt needed.
