I learned something new today.
Remember episode 10 of Girls und Panzer, which includes a long segment of all the tank crews eating dinner the night before the last match? They're all eating pork cutlets. I had noticed that, but didn't understand why.
Peter says it's a pun that has become a superstition. A fried pork cutlet is katsu. And...
Because katsu also means "to win" in Japanese, it's common for parents to serve this to their kids before a big test or sporting event to show their support.
