41st Sweet: Ninjin
[TL note: "ninjin" means "carrot"]





It's so quiet...
So peacef-





What the...?!



Did that sound come from the backyard...?!


Pops, what are you do-


Oh, Kokonotsu, what's up?

No, seriously, what are you doing?!



What? You can't tell?
It's a /bomb/, duh!


Huh?! A bomb?! Sorry, but that doesn't help me at all!!


You-san, that was too cryptic. You have to be to be clearer if you want him to understand...


You have to say it's...
/a carrot./

You're not being any more helpful!!


Come on, Kokonotsu, I'm sure you know about carrots.



Just show him, I'm sure he'll understand, You-san!






Here, it's your share, Kokonotsu.

You can eat it.


Erm... Thanks...






I-It's the dagashi that's inside that pouch that looks like a carrot!

Isn't it called /puffed rice/?


Indeed, they decided to call it "ninjin" because the pouch looks like a carrot.
[TL note: reminder, "ninjin" means "carrot"]


Right! And /that/...

is the machine used to produce "ninjin" from rice, the "bakudan"!
[TL note: "bakudan" means "bomb"]



It's basically just a pressure cooker. You heat it to elevate the pression of the vapor inside the cooker.




And then, the machine suddenly releases the pressure, turning the rice into a delicious, crispy snack.

It's the same principle as popcorn.


In order to release the pressure, one has to hit the lever with a hammer.

I like the roaring sound and white smoke it produces during that process...

Hence the name "bakudan".

I agree, I find them very elegant...

Did we really have something like that at home...?


Yeah, I remember my grandfather taking it with him to peddle puffed rice.

He pulled a whole trailer behind him...

I didn't know that...

Alright, time to work!!

He's still so energetic...!


He had to pull this huge machine behind him...

It looks heavy.

Well, you know, this is actually one of the smaller models.



I heard that the ones for industrial use are just as big as cannons.

Okay, it's nearly time for the next batch.
Plug your ears.








What's wrong, pops?


I think it's broken...




It's so precious...!!

There aren't many people who own this kind of machine...

Well, it's not surprising, this one must be around 100 years old...


Have you noticed how...

it always happens when you're least prepared for it?



But here's exactly what you need!
The portable puffed-rice machine!


Get it now, for only 100,000 yen!! You heard right, only 100,000 yen!!


With this, you can eat as much puffed rice, as many ninjin as you want!

Wow, that sounds great! And for only 100,000 yen, what a deal!




an idea we got to start a new business. What do you think?

Can't you be more direct?!!
