Requested by Annette quite some time ago, it is about time this crazy monkey noodles character was added! A quick translation note: all of the sentences end with the verb "desu" (to be) but using an old form of it "degozaru." I imagine this in another little added in pun for our zaru/saru creatures!
Japanese Name: さるそば
Literal Translation: Monkey Buckwheat Noodles1
The sarusoba (monkey buckwheat), of the Polygonaceae3 family, is an annual plant. In summer or early autumn, the white flowers bloom and the plant bears the sarusoba seeds. The sarusoba flour is made from these seeds. It is said that a soul dwells inside the boiled sarusoba.
