Latest awesome Japanese fad? Recreating Quidditch matches in pics

First schoolgirls were getting their Dragon Ball on. Then westerners were Vadering. Now we've come full circle and Japan is Harry Pottering all over the place!

We confess -- Quidditch, as a sport, doesn't make the most sense. But it's wizards flying around on broomsticks for fun, so who cares? While there have been muggle versions of Quidditch in the past, this latest meme takes the idea of playing the game in real life to a whole new level.

In Japan, students are typically expected to clean up their classrooms, the sports areas, and the school in general. That means that they've got easy access to brooms. And easy access to brooms means hilarious Harry Potter shenanigans.

Check out our gallery full of kids making it seem like they are actually flying. If this doesn't make you wish Quidditch were real, we don't know what will!
