Meet Sento-kun, the controversial 1300th year anniversary mascot for Nara..
Designed by Satoshi Yabuuchi, this design has been controversial because…it’s ugly.
Many wanted a more traditional cartoon-like mascot that was more child friendly.
Many didn’t feel comfortable with a small boy with antlers coming out of his head.
But don’t tell anyone…
An attempt to installl a different mascot was initiated but it wasn’t enough…
So Sento-kun stands proud in Nara all over the city with his smirky face.
But you can’t hide the truth…wwwwwww
