The new version looks like an [email protected] Cinderella Girls character cosplay, and I would not be surprised if the artist that drew it WAS part of the group that does the [email protected] promo material.

Being not aware of what the character looked like before, I was not quite expecting the Sazae-san like character appearance of old...

Nor the VN love interest appearance of the new design, for that matter. I thought mascot still tended to use the cuter, smaller appearance.

Seeing the differences gave me a small chuckle literally. But I like the moe boom so good for them.

Well yeah if you don't mind the giant head and the goofily drawn face.

Yeah, I'd say it was about time that '80's mascot was updated. The new one is much more interesting. It invites the question "who or what is she so in love with?"
