I don' t wanna get out of futon by 打首獄門同好会 (Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai): A cute and relatable little song for some people in the North American midwest right now.

I declare this to be my opening credit theme song. Perfection.

Thank you ardegee! Adoring this so hard; sending to all cold friends everywhere.

I like how all the band's other songs appear to be about food.

Maybe that dude would be warmer if he put some freaking clothes on!

That was very cute. I’m an American, and the first time I visited Japan it was winter, and I stayed part of the time at a poorly insulated, unheated house in rural Hokkaido, where I was introduced to the wonders of the Kotatsu. What a genius way to convince families (and their appreciative guests) to spend time together!

This does make me wonder, does Japan have/had the odd but useful houseware Terry Pratchett called a "guzunder", a.k.a. a thunderbucket?

And now I get what this thing in Neko Atsume is!

Hahahaha this is so great it reminds me of Aggretsuko and I relate so much. Having the world inside my blanket would be very nice indeed.

I also now understand Kotatsu more now -- it's not as clear from Neko atsume because cats don't really have a lower body, per se!

The kotatsu and the heated toilet seat made our stay in a poorly insulated Airbnb in Tokyo much more bearable.

This is wonderful; thank you for posting! I'd never heard of this band before.

*mameshiba* Hey, did you know? "Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai" means "The Heads on Pikes Association"! (insert your own disturbed reaction)

I love this! Also, I live in an American, theoretically insulated apartment and I still shot straight from bed to the kotatsu this morning, coming out only when the kettle finished to get my tea. Working up the nerve to shower now.

I was extremely disappointed when I got out of bed this morning at the absence of a choir praising my amazingness for managing to make it out of my warm, soft bed.

love this

tho was expecting the end to come with a verse of "oh my god my bed is so cold" but that might be a British house insulation problem

This is exactly how I felt this morning. I had to turn my heated mattress pad back on (it turns itself off after a certain amount of time, I definitely did not turn it off myself) and huddle in bed until the need to eat and take meds forced me to grab clothes.

Thank you OP for posting this.

It me... And I have suddenly come to the realisation that a significant aspect of my lifestyle is not adequately represented in popular culture.
