    I love the:  OK!

      That doesn’t mean everything’s alright. The word before the OK! (準備) means “preparation,” more or less. So when those cute little uterus cells say “準備OK!” they mean “Ready!”

      That’s Japanese English for you :)

    Dammmmmn. If my wife knew Endo was so cute, maybe she wouldn’t have had that Hysterectomy last week.

    On a side note: it was done by a ROBOT! how BoingBoing is that?

    Hmmm, without seeing the apparently amazing animation in its entirety I would say that illustration # 1 is either a fetus or a fibroid and # 2 is endometrial hyperplasia.

    #2 is scientific proof that a woman who uses birth control ends up with a uterus full of unborn, implanted embryos.

    The lovely j-pop idol Matsuura Aya revealed in 2011 that she was diagnosed with endometriosis and as a result, it’s brought quite a lot attention to the ailment in Japan: http://www.tokyohive.com/2011/08/matsuura-aya-reveals-she-has-endometriosis/

    Unlike many j-pop idols, Matsuura can really sing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX-0IGrycvQ
    However, her quirky Ne~e will always be my favorite Matsuura: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyVEcB1-j9Q
