Japanese Vending Machine Dispenses Love Letters from Your ‘Little Sister’ and It’s Creepy AF
A capsule toy vending machine in Japan dispenses love letters from your “little sister” and the results can either be sweet, confusing, or just simply psycho depending on your luck.
The vending machine, which can be found in the Capsule House in Osu, Nagoya, contains several hand-written letters that seemingly come from your “little sister” that cost 200 yen ($1.80). While some of these letters can come off as sweet, others can be quite scary.
The letter that the Twitter user posted, as translated by SoraNews24, reads:
“To Onii-chan, who I love so much,
Onii-chan, I’ve been thinking. Maybe it’s time for us to start over with our relationship. I will always love you, as I should. But we can’t spend our adult lives together forever like this. Even my friend Manami told me we can’t hide this forever.
You might say that doesn’t matter, but we can’t have a proper marriage, and people will think we’re strange. I’ve always loved you since we were little kids, and I still do. But…even if we “love” each other, the relationship we should have is one where we “like” each other. Yes, that’s how things should be.
My feelings of love for you will never change. But let’s find people we can have a relationship of love with, not just like. I’m rooting for you!
So…as of today…it’s…it’s over…right?
I’ll always love you.”
Of course, there are also letters that are not meant to be read by Onii-chan (“brother” in Japanese). The Twitter user also shared the other letter he got from the vending machine which appears to be addressed to the brother’s supposed love interest and reads:
This is Onii-chan’s little sister Hotaru. We met the other day. There’s something I wanted to tell you, but I can’t when you’re always with my brother, so I wrote this letter instead.
I’ll get straight to the point. Can you back off? You and my brother aren’t a couple, so don’t you think it’s annoying how you’re always trying to act all flirty and clinging to him? It’s a huge nuisance to me!!
To be honest, my brother doesn’t care about you at all. He won’t fall in love with any girl other than me. Can you please put that in your head? And stop sending him text messages on Line every night. It’s so annoying! You’ll probably say I have a brother complex, but the bond between Onii-chan and me isn’t anything so shallow as that.
However, there’s apparently an unsettling letter inside the machine that almost looks like it came straight out of the psychological visual novel game “Doki Doki Literature Club.” Twitter user @TadashiOrisbc3 shared the letter on social media which reads:
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
