Cool, we need good men and women with connections to the anime industry in office. Hopefully he serves his role well.

You mean it doesn't? Nonsense. And I fully support tea taxes. I mean, taxes for the afternoon tea.

There's no such thing as a good civil servant /cynicism


Might as well have an anime in office.

Also his portrait makes him look very kawaii. Another important trait for any elected official.

He's been vice mayor for two years already, according to the first post in this thread. He's not some guy off the street who conned his way into office on the very dubious "advantage" of being related to an illustrator/animator nobody outside of anime fandom would have ever heard of. I really doubt K-ON! has any influence on his work. That's a silly thing to be concerned about.

At least have the guts to post your ignorant and unwarranted insults outside spoiler tags. And your reply makes little sense, grammatically, for what you're quoting.

It would be awesome if the cartoon portrait of him makes some cameo appearances in a couple of KyoAni's anime in the near future.

Ignorant isn't even remotely close to describing his comment. Unless you're under the mistaken impression that "ignorant" just = "dumb." In which case, you're just ignorant.
