Contest is over – #2 won on April 17

inally! The time has come to vote on Nara’s New New Mascot. I got a lot of submissions for this contest, so unfortunately I had to narrow it down to my favorite top ten to make voting easier on everyone. Also, I haven’t read any of the submissions for the “continue this story” contest, but I’ll be getting to that within the week. I hope the City of Nara sees this article and realizes the error of their ways.

The mascots will be listed after the break. Afterwards, there will be a poll that will allow you to vote on your favorite! Please vote for your favorite New New Nara Mascot by using the number/name I gave each mascot (which can be seen on each image). The winner of this contest gets a brand spanking new Japanese textbook of my choosing, so make sure you vote now! Somebody’s education is on the line!

Voting will end in one week! (That’s April 17 at Midnight my time)

Vote For Your Favorite!

    Hey, #2 here! Finally posting a comment!

    Actually, I had asked a group of online friends if they could vote for me, and they all pitched in. Now they are telling everyone else they know about it and it seems to be spreading like wildfire! I didn’t think that I would get as much votes and support as I did. Thanks again, you guys! :)

    And I’m sorry if people got freaked out about the number of votes. I know, that’s a LOT of people! (My mom asked her friends to vote as well)

    This is actually the section of journeymanpictures’ s videos where Japan is mentioned. Most of the videos are solely about Japan. No copyright infringement, Viet-kun. So, we’re all happy :)

    おめでとう。

  • diojenisu

    They were made in the 90’s. But, yeah, i agree they are not that recent. But videos like Demon Drummers and a lot more are worth watching anyways.

  • lalala

    10’s the best one, definitely. :-}

  • slimjim

    haha, the number 8 is hilarious!!! it’s like the asian version of reindeer during christmas!
