Ok, ok, here’s the-rest-of-the story of Terror Blossom according to the RangerWiki (powerrangers.wikia.com)

A flower monster created by Lord Zedd from flower petals, Terror Blossom had the ability to reproduce and possessed poison petals. Terror Blossom was able to recreate the Hatchasaurus to keep the Rangers occupied. After defeating the Hatchasaurus, Jason, Zack, and Trini are frozen by Terror Blossom’s shower of poisonous petals. They are teleported to the Command Center so Billy can try to revert the effects of the poison, and he eventually succeeds. Later, Terror Blossom unleashes his flower more…

Yesterday’s post, reminded everyone to, Check out this Sanio character’s Butthole.
 
In response our faithful reader “Coligny” observed, “Your obsession with yuru chara bungholes is disturbing…” toyocky drawing kime which refers to our previous exchange (3Yen 2012-12-09) about his local “loose character” (yuru chara) “Toyocky,” the mascot of Toyohashi City.

Of course, Sanio character’s and “Toyocky” aren’t the only bungholy mascots in Japan.

There’s “Nagomi Shibakko” character of Kyoto who keeps things tidy and puckered up.

Japan’s “Mr. Bowling” also keeps things tidy, well zipped up, and on-the-down-low (お尻もなかなかプリティです).

Much like Mr. Bowling, the loose character of Ehime Prefecture, buttless “Baryi,” also keeps things tightnright with its bunghole biscuit plug (far right).

Here’s the character “Poo” (ぽぉ) of Iida City. A ripe mango? (“完熟マンゴー?”)

It looks like the above “Poo” character needs the services of the “AssFinger” mascot to hold things in.
ASS-FINGER

Better yet, the “PIAnisiki”(ぴあにしき) mascot has TWO bungholes!

Mukku, of the children’s TV show “Hirake! Ponkiki(3Yen 2010-08-30) takes it up the p00pchute.

Red Cross Japan‘s mascot, “Red Poop* Boy” (赤フン坊や) has a costume malfunction in his nether regions.

Can anyone else think of Japanese masscot (sic) mischief in the lower regions?

 



 


Coming-of-Age Day 2016

clash-with-police

Japan’s Coming-of-Age Day is set up to congratulate those who have reached the age of maturity (20) during the year. Cities and towns throughout the nation hold ceremonies for these young people but sometimes the kids get a kittle immature.


Irked by loud attire, Kitakyushu urges young adults to dress right on Coming-of-Age Day
The Japan Times | Jan. 8, 2016
In recent years, Kitakyushu’s Coming-of-Age Day ceremonies have been marked by young men wearing vividly colored hakama, a trouser component of the kimono, making them look like hooligans to some
The new women meanwhile are starting to wear a looser-fitting style of kimono that exposes the shoulders in a way used by oiran, the high-class prostitutes of the Edo Period.

‘Namahage’ New Years Ogres

Like Krampus on acid, Japan’s ‘Namahage’—New Years Ogres armed with fake wooden deba knives go door-to-door admonishing children who may be guilty of laziness or bad behavior.
Namahage yell phrases like “Are there any crybabies around?” (泣く子はいねがぁ Nakuko wa inee gā?) or “Are naughty kids around?” (悪い子はいねえか Waruiko wa inee ka?) —Wikipedia.org/wiki/Namahage
