There's a rape joke in here somewhere but I'm too tired to actually come up with anything clever.

Well I immediately thought Madoka when I first saw the headline. Not sure in the sense of making this poster, but atleast the drawing looks nice.

i don't know how magical girls could stop crime in Japan... but if such a strategy can indeed do good in crime prevention, then how about replacing that mahou shoujo with Homura.. bet that'll scare the hell out of potential criminals...

but anyways, nice moe police there... XD

this only makes sense in Japan, but then again, we did have Scruff MacGruff, and he was not nearly as exciting.
