Particle man, particle man
Doing the things a particle can
What's he like? It's not important
Particle man.

Am I the only person thinking of this?

My only thought was that the guy on the right "Elec Smith" would not be allowed into a lab with a lab-coat like that as it would be a safety hazard!

Not enough mesons, I contend.

You're not, but I had a different video in mind. Very Happy

Anything else Japan wants to turn into a group of teen boys for the teen girls in the audience to squeal over?

Might as well do the Elements from the Periodic Table. They can have children after mixing their atoms.

Pretty much, but I was replacing "man" with "boys" from the get-go.

Did you read the title...?

I don't favor the art, but I guess the designs are simple enough to work.

Was that meant as a joke? Like, a pun based on objects being turned into guys?
Either way, wouldn't the recent one with the guns being anthropomorphized be a bit better? (I mean, they're more attractive, imo.)

Up is a third-year student and Down's twin brother who loves craftsmanship. He has a sociable personality but a violent disposition.

Elec is popular with everyone, and he has to be careful because he can manipulate static electricity. Although he looks young, he is the oldest of the group.


What is it with the violent dudes in this kind of content? It's almost like "abusive guy" is just one among the desirable character traits to assign to a character in an ensemble cast.

Also, good to see the good ole shota who is actually older than everyone else trope. It's actually used a lot more rarely than its loli counterpart

Very Happy

I think that's their attempt to incorporate up quark's larger positive charge (+2/3e cf -1/3e for down), and equating the electrical charge with violent tendencies?

Likewise, electrons have the least mass of the group (except for gluons which have zero mass), and they were discovered decades before the rest, so, there ya go.

This is a good thing. We can look forward to a whole crop of Japanese girls becoming particle physicists over the next decade or so. Smile
