Local monster general election

Recommended Posts

The local mascots for regions and cities in Japan are nothing new, having tournaments against each other, also sumo, also happens regularly, some even go against ozumo rikishi when they are in town.

Local monsters are not that widely known. To every prefecture it's Godzilla derivative.

The general elections in the fashion of the ones for AKB48 leading members also have spread, Nikkan each year does one for ozumo as a popularity poll.

An now we have 47 prefecture local monsters in a general election.

A nice selection of the local monster paintings: http://www.sankei.com/photo/story/news/151120/sty1511200001-n1.html

Does the winning kaiju get to rampage through the losing prefectures while their monsters look sadly on?
