Genital summit of century is finally being held in Osaka at “Loft Plus One West”! ~
Our Japanese faith in the Sex Gods has been handed down from ancient times. Travelers’ guardian deities in the form of phalli quietly protect on the roadsides … In order to protect the phallic worship that is being be lost with modernization, now is the time the power of our Chi to rise—The Phallic Generation.

goofy Google Translate of a Self-Defense Force recruiting site:
This is the new design for Japan’s Self-Defense Forces recruiting posters …. the refreshing image of the new design will bring a bright and positive frame of mind…in a fresh illustration such that wants to continue to challenge something. The new recruiting slogan will be, “The shining me!

 

 
The fearsome “I ☆ P’s” military recruiting characters pictured are:

• Miss Rose of the Maritime Self-Defense Force dressed in navy whites.
• Miss Plum of the Ground Self-Defense Force dressed army green.
