SHOJO

Japanese Drunken Spirits

Wine-toting Japanese Sea Monkeys

The Shojo are orangutan-like mermaid spirits who wear skirts made of green seaweed, live on the sea bed, and offer a range of fine wines to the discerning drowning sailor market.

Yes, they make wine. What on earth can they make it from? Underwater grapes? Is it brine wine?

The signature wine of the Shojo vineyard has a very distinctive character. If you are a good person, it will taste delicious. But to bad folk it tastes like the foulest poison — and works as such too. If you are a naughty human, the only antidote is to immediately give up your evil ways.

We’ve heard of seaside trips and the dangers of sunstroke but this whole thing is Bizarre-on-Sea.
