So did they get those tits from eating rice? Or are they meant to look like rice? Either way could work.

RiCes confirmed to be Koizumi Hanayo's new favorite idol unit?

They're nicely designed, but the chests bother me for some reason.

That is because cloth doesn't cling like that, not even spandex.

Yep, that pretty much nails the problem on the head. I was even just showing the article to my fiance and complaining about it (the clingy clothing).

It's sad, because Haenuki is super cute and I have decided she is best rice. This all serves to make me a lot more curious about the various types of rice that Japan has at least, never heard of this 'flavor points' thing prior to this.

They sound like the kind of thing someone made up to justify why one bag of rice is 3x the price of another.

There are probably differences depending on the variety of the rice, the climate, the soil and other factors. I'm sure that at a minimum there are people who are sure they can tell the difference between the high priced rice and the common stuff.

After all, people in this country actually claim they can tell the difference between one bottle of wine and another. Mad

"back in my day all wine came in a box and we only had 2 brands dammit!" Alright gramps I think it's time for you to head back to the home before you get any crankier. We've got mashed potatoes for dinner and it's bingo night!!! Wink

For rice idols they're pretty cute I suppose. While I think Shōnai has the nicest hair cut going on I think Miyagi's outfit color combination/pattern is the nicest of the 3. Just goes to show though damn near every product in Japan has an idol group to market it heh.

Meanwhile, in the US it seems like almost nothing's gotten a new mascot in fifteen years at least and those that are left are being redesigned off the package one by one.

Sounds like they're getting desperate and following like lemmings where there's already a thousand lemmings so it's hard to differentiate your brands.
