by Mariko Oka

Sake made with anime motif as Cutie Honey of "Cutie Honey", Swan Jun of "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman", and Dronjo of "Yatterman" are due to go on sale at the end of August.
The project called "Ultra J - ULTRA ALLIANCE JAPAN ~" by Pony Canyon, made this line possible with a mission of Japan's leading anime characters to send out Japanese beauty and craftsmanship to the world.
Cutie Honey is  a sweet ginjo sake with a light, fruity taste. Jun the Swan (Gatchaman) is an unfiltered ginjo sake with deep umami notes. Doronjo (Yatterman) is a wine with a crisp flavor and deep finish.
They will be available for purchase in the end of August at the Mirai Japanese Sake store in Daikanyama and in Kichijoji, Tokyo and also on their website. http://6star.jp/
