I'm so fascinated with "Ippei-kun".
Ippei-kun is a mascot character for a soccer team (FC Ehime) in Japan.
For a soccer team's mascot character, he isn't so good looking.
AND, there is a real problem.
The character is ridiculously weak! Everytime they do a race within fellow mascot characters, Ippei-kun pulls a muschle, or suffer from heat exhaustion and carry him off on a strecher.
Of course, these are just an act, but if the character is weak and always having problems, it's kind of a bad luck for the soccer team.
But then, the mismatch is kind of interesting.
FC Ehime is not a major soccer team, but people go see the game just to see Ippei-kun.
You can watch some of the videlo clips of Ippei-kun below.
