All shall be moe. Resistance to all that is moe will itself be turned into a moe character. She will fight with the other moe characters until they pat her on the head and say "There, there" and then they will all be friends.

I wonder if restaurants will be another service that will get the "anthropomorphization" treatment one day.

Japan will NEVER stop Anthropomorphizing things into cute girls but why would you want them to stop in the first place. Very Happy

Still, two-and-a-half cute Giant characters--Maybe a metaphor for giant corporations, but nice to see Japanese fans are starting to catch the bug for the next big fetish after "Seven Deadly Sins". Smile
Gigantesses could be to the late 10's what Monster girls were to the early 10's or Maids were to the early 00's.

Which Service Station girl is best Service Station girl? I'm torn between Nagashino, who has that historic Japan appeal with the samurai swords and her cherry blossom-coloured kimono, and Hamamatsu, because her design has a certain "optimistic innocence" to her and also because she represents the city in which Strawberry Marshmallow takes place.

I'm kind of lost with some of these references. I don't know much about the geography of Japan, so they probably don't make quite as much sense to me as it would for their intended audience.
