The collaboration campaign was originated from an online topic about the resemblance between Denny's original picture and K-ON characters. Denny's said "The picture was not related to K-ON, but it created a great sensation, so that we asked TBS for collaboration."

Ohmi Railway will sell special tickets featuring K-ON!! characters on July 28th. Ohmi Railway runs close to Toyosato Elementary School, the model school of K-ON.

Gah, those look kinda good. Shit, they should bring those over here, with or without the K-ON!! ads.

I agree ;_; ...given that this is as tasty as it looks and not Bianchi's poison cooking >3

I know it'd never happen, but I wish we could get some of this anime marketing in America.

Some of those desserts look pretty good. Too bad Denny's over here won't serve something so awesome.

Why can't America be more anime-interactive?! DX

Although it's ok to be an otaku in America, anime is still the niche market even after all these years.

Awesome. Looks good

K-ON!! is that popular? There has to be a limit... I mean train tickets and Denny's desserts are fine, but using them in something official like the 2010 Kyoto prefect census sounds a little over the top.

Those desserts look incredibly unappetizing.
