Can You Solve This Puzzle?

“I created a cruel puzzle. Please don’t get mad when you realise what’s so cruel about it. Seriously,” said a Twitter user with the handle @asuwara0624. 

The cruel puzzle consists of four different images. Beside the images are circles, in varying number for each image (with some circles numbered 1-4), which need to be filled in with katakana characters associated with the image. Finally, the katakana from the 1-4 need to be taken out and arranged to create a new word. Sounds easy, right? But, like what @asuwara0624 said, this is a “cruel puzzle”. So what’s so “cruel” about this, and how do you solve it? Find out on SoraNews24.

**SPOILER**The first one is 7-Eleven. 11-7=4. I don't know the rest, but I'm assuming it's because I don't know the locations by symbol alone.

I don't think my American head can wrap itself around this puzzle. Sure it's going to be hard but this is from the country that gave us Suduku it seems pretty par for the course for Japanese word games.
