On 13 April, the nationwide release of the long-awaited film adaptation of a few guys’ favorite manga Hentai Kamen (lit. “pervert mask”) took place. The film, which goes by the stylized title “HK”, tells the story of a young man who learns that he gains a variety of superpowers by wearing underwear over his head.

To celebrate, seven ramen shops around Japan are creating limited edition bowls of ramen which follow the Hentai Kamen theme of perviness. Each shop is selling its own extremely unique interpretation of HK through the medium of soup. You definitely haven’t seen ramen like this before.

Before we get into the actual ramen dishes a key ingredient needs to be explained. Many of these soups contain inarizushi (aka inari) which is a piece of fried tofu stuffed with rice and sometimes other ingredients.

It also is said to resemble a guy’s junk resting in a pair of tighty-whities; a major theme of HK and a fact which guarantees me never eating inari again.

So, without further ado here is a list of the different Hentai Ramen:

Hentai Ramen – 800 yen (US$8)
Nichome Tsukemen GACHI

This ramen features Hentai Kamen’s face using floating meringue for the underwear mask. Lift off the pants and a huge inari with two golden egg halves await. The egg yolks are fried in golden sesame oil and the soup is pork and chicken teriyaki-flavored.

HK Ramen with Carbonara Soup – 900 yen ($9)
Shirakawa Teuchi Chuka Soba Ichiban 

Grated cheese sprinkled on a heap of noodles with a girthy inari. Deep inside is a secret sticky ingredient that comes out if you play around with it for a bit. On the side is a gooey and cold carbonara soup. The combination of the creamy carbonara and the salty yet sour secret ingredients is a climactic taste.

Shocking! Hentai Ramen – 800 yen ($8)
Yatai Chikamichi Ramen

Soba noodles and lettuce with some curry slopped on top. We also gave it a hot meat injection which changes the taste completely. The taste is a spicy Chinese pepper and there’s a golden ball of egg yolk on top. At the bottom of the dish is a small spattering of sweet and salty soup.  They say this is the chunkiest ramen we ever made.

A bonerific soup made with chicken and pork bones and a film sakura shrimp flavored oil floating on top. It’s also loaded with lots of spicy meat seasoned with curry and Chinese pepper.

It’s also loaded with snap peas and green onion, and of course a girthy inari and two golden egg yolks. The noodles are so thick they might not fit… on your spoon.
