Constitution Girls Book Turns Law Into Moe Girls

posted on by Egan Loo
10 artists explain Japan's constitution by anthropomorphizing articles into girls

The Japanese publisher PHP Kenkyūsha released Constitution Girls - Nihon-Koku Kenpō, a book that turns the articles of the Japanese Constitution into moe girls, on Monday.

10 illustrators created Constitution Girls art to help explain the different sections of this document. For example, Article 9 — the clause that famously prohibits Japan from officially waging war — is portrayed as a peace-loving girl named 9-Jō-chan.

The writer of the book is Yūko Morita, a lawyer in the Daini Tokyo Bar Association who moonlights as a creator under the name Aka-Neko. Morita draws the Shihō Shūshū Quest manga about a lawyer fresh out of law school, and she also designed and wrote a free manga pamphlet for her bar association.

The Constitution Girls - Nihon-Koku Kenpō book sells for 1,995 yen (about US$24.70).
