Note to all - this is a recipe designed explicitly for those of us living in Japan. The individual Amazon.co.jp links will work for you, but the aggregate Amazon URL will not go well for you. If you're living in Japan, please enjoy!
Big ups to Victuals for creating the initial Japan Soylent (mostly complete) recipe I grabbed this from. Differences include aiming for lower carbs and 1500 calories, as well as reducing products shipped from outside Japan. Choline remains troublesome, but is a fairly small package.
As of Aug 8, cinnamon is a major part of this recipe - get ceylon cinnamon, not cassia! There is evidence to suggest a couple of grams or more per day of cassia cinnamon (which contains coumarin) can lead to liver toxicity. Ceylon cinnamon is also about four times as expensive as its cheaper cassia counterpart, so this will affect the daily cost. The cinnamon I linked is in limited quantity, but searching セイロン シナモン on Amazon.co.jp should yield a few good results.
Equivalent ML for those of us without scales:
Masa Flour: 200ml
Kentai Power Protein: 175ml
Oats: I forgot to write down the oatmeal amount, idiot
Cinnamon: Not done yet
Update, Oct 2: Got a new blender, from http://amzn.to/1vxAksQ . It is awesome and blends this into a much finer mixture. Much enjoy, happy times.
UPDATE, Aug 27: Adding a few ml of vanilla extract greatly helped the flavor, and the mixture may as well be complete! Just need to nail down specific ml for water, really. Also, have added a few grains of instant coffee dissolved in water to help boost the mental acuity - am not sure how that is going yet, as I was never really a coffee drinker. Feel a little jittery most of the time, even with only a couple of grains.
UPDATE, Aug 13 2014: Produced 1/2 of the first recipe with cinnamon, but cannot seem to avoid putting in a few too many bananas to make it taste good. The cinnamon doesn't necessarily detract or add to the flavor, which I suppose is a nice relief - I expected it to overwhelm.
Still would be good to have some kind of flavor alternative better than adding all the sugar from a banana.
