Pocky =D  
So today my mum brought me back something called 'Mikado' from Tesco's...Much to my surprise it seemed they were knock-off boxes of pocky. =O ...and upon closer examination, it seems they are actually made by glico! So they must be their UK distribution equivalent!

Also the boxes have more Pocky in them, and are cheaper to boot! :D

So...am I the only one who eats pocky and didn't know about this? XD

*fights the urge to drive to the Tesco super store up the road*

The name does sound familiar, think I may have got some abroad once :)

It's cheap and plentiful! Go go go! XD

Well Mikado is another name for 'pick-up sticks' (or so the box tells me..), maybe that's where you've heard it? Though it wouldn't surprise me at all if every other country but ours got pocky first. =(

Hiya! This is grey_damaskena. I'm sorry to be leaving you a comment so randomly, but I dropped by because you're a member of the saiunkoku community. I just wanted to let you know that there's currently a poll running on the community to gauge interest in getting the Saiunkoku Monogatari light novels translated into English. The number of answers in the poll could very well determine whether or not we ever see an English version of the novels. So if you have the time and have not done so already, we would really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to answer it.

Please either drop by the saiunkoku community (the poll is in the third post), or click on this link to go directly to the post.

Thank you very much for your time, and for your interest and support of Saiunkoku!

Hey grey_damaska, I've actually already responded to that poll. :) Hopefully it will get us somewhere!
