20 years seems more sensible, using Kirino to promote the lowered ages makes me think of Xard's old proverb "Nearly all teenage boys are dumbfucks." :lol:

France has been romanticized in the media to a massive extent in Japan that tourists expecting the "ideal" Paris get a rude awakening.

Maybe they'll be called the "Ninja Six" or "HexaRangers"?

As the troupe will sometimes perform in English, Japanese language skills are preferred rather than essential, Mr Adachi said, although a passion for history and tourism is a requirement.

This glossy bundle of fetish fuel which has been trending on Twitter there, seems to be advertising a new mobage, given the publisher and lack of any other furniture; but it is still totally "WTF, Japan!?" stuff.

Lesbian furry horsetrack girls. I promise I'll never do drugs ever again. Considering they made FREE! When the animation demo exploded across the internet, don't be suprised if this gets turned into an anime down the line too.

There's such a double standard though, why aren't there any boys? If it was more Gender equal. Okay it would still be creepy but it would be LESS creepy overall.

This is what everyone is getting weirded out by? LOL, this is normal for Japan. They've already turned just about everything else into high school girls, including battleships. I'm honestly amazed it's taken them this long to create anthropomorphic racehorse girls.

This is barely more than umamimi -- unlike, say, MonMusu and its centaur girl.

why aren't there any boys?
Because they know their market?

Turning inanimate object into cute girls is one thing, but turning girls into actual livestock . . . well, it's a new level of creepy, let's leave it at that.

I'd agree with you in this case if there was evidence that they were treated as property or forced to race against their will, but from the trailer they seemed to have their own apartments and their own lives, and training for the race as if it was a sport or something. I mean I could be wrong, but that's what I got from the trailer.
