Japan Uses Video Game With Anime Girls To Teach Men Healthy Pooping Habits

While everyone likes a little humor in the bathroom every now and then, no one wants to talk about gut health. But a new Japanese application aims to change that, and it does so in a very seductive way.

Called “Unkore” (a combination of the Japanese words for “shit” and “collection”), it is a video game that turns gut bacteria into sexy anime ladies. It takes place in the fictional land of Untopia and tasks players with defending the kingdom with the help of bacteria. The app prompts users to record their BM details including frequency, shape, and color in hopes of getting bacilli props.

The app was created by gastrointestinal surgeon Yousuke Ishii as part of a public health campaign because colorectal cancer cases are on the rise in Japan.

How effective the app is in getting men to pay more attention to their grooming habits remains to be seen, but we are all in favor of any excuse to make poo more fun.
