    A good example of checking before you post - the upper photo is already posted to the thread of STU member Harada Sayaka and I was about the post the lower one there when I realised something didn't look quite right:

    haradasayakasanban2024.jpg

    Apart from some visual differences in appearance, checking the Kanji confirmed that the latter person is indeed not the STU member and is in fact a seiyuu.

    The UK and US need to take tips from Japan

    With suggestive poses and pets, 'wacky' election campaigning tests Tokyo's patience

    Tokyo elects a new governor this weekend, but residents say personal publicity stunts have overtaken serious campaigning to a degree never seen before, with nearly nude women in suggestive poses, pets, an AI character and a man practicing his golf swing.

    It's impossible to ignore. With internet campaigning still relatively new, candidates traditionally use designated election billboards — more than 14,000 of them — to promote themselves. The makeshift billboards are set up only during the short campaign season and are valuable space for exposure in a city already crammed with advertising.

    But this year's wackiness — notably from non-candidates renting the billboard space — is proving exceptional, and residents have flooded election offices with angry calls and messages.

    "They are distasteful. As a Japanese citizen I feel embarrassed, as I see many foreign visitors pass by those billboards and they must wonder what's going on," said Mayumi Noda, an office worker. "As a voter, I think it's outrageous and disrespectful to the other candidates who are seriously competing."

    One billboard featured racy posters for an adult entertainment shop. Another had an almost naked female model in a suggestive pose with a message that said "Stop restricting free speech."

    Campaign video clips have also drawn criticism. One shows female candidate Airi Uchino saying, "I'm so cute; please watch my campaign broadcast," and repeating her name in a high-pitched, anime-style voice while asking voters to be friends on social media. She then strips down to a beige-colored tube top.

    A record 56 candidates, including incumbent Gov. Yuriko Koike, who seeks her third four-year term, are running in Sunday's election. Many of the candidates are fringe figures or influencers seeking even more exposure.

    Oh we can also do wacky here in the UK - here's a photo of our new PM Sir Keir Starmer at his constituency result today in Camden, London with two of his local rivals - Bobby ‘Elmo’ Smith is in the red costume and next to him is Nick the Incredible Flying Brick:
