Act now!

Supplies will likely last; we’d just like to skip the slow, grinding attrition phase.

速戦即決
soku.sen.so-.kketsu

Literally: quick – battle – instant – decide

Alternately: In war, striking right away at the enemy’s main force in an attempt to end things as soon as hostilities have begun. By extension, any attempt to deal with a given task or situation quickly. Taking action immediately. Blitz tactics.

Notes: A close synonym is 短期決戦 (tanki kessen), “short-term decisive battle.”

 
The "day" version literally has "Blitzkrieg!" written on the box in Latin characters.

A dietary supplement that claims to allow rapid weight loss. Sold, completely unregulated, on Amazon for about US$60 a box. I would NOT recommend trying it.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
