Where can I buy Toreta?

I've been trying to track down a Japanese sports drink called Toreta! ever since I saw a character drink it in my favorite new Kdrama Goblin. It's sold out on Rakuten, and Amazon doesn't seem to carry it at all. Where could I order it from instead? Is it too new to be carried in Asian markets in the US? Thank you!

Okay, so now I'm getting mixed search results on whether this is a Korean product originally or a Japanese-based one. Could that be why I'm having difficulty locating it? Amazon.jp doesn't carry it, but there isn't a South Korean Amazon as far as I can tell, either.

FWIW it's likely Japanese in origin. The name is definitely Japanese (of course, it may also mean something in Korean, but I wouldn't know) and loosely translates as "Got it!" (implying you got your minerals, your hydration, your flavour, etc.). I think it came out last summer. Also, some people think it's a rip off of Suntory's "Green Dakara," which you can get here, if you don't manage to find Toreta! but would like to try something similar.

You can make a special request to (occasionally NSFW) J-list.
