Absolutely disgusting

>see pic
>no Ichigo between Naruto and Luffy
>even the girls from precure made it.

Is Kubo ded in the manga industry already?
Will he create another cool story again and not fuck it up this time?
Will he be doomed to become the assistant of a top tier mangaka?

>even the girls from precure made it
nigger what, precure is popular as fuck in nipland. Also, Bleach is shit and got axed that's why it's not here.
>>
Was bleach popular back in 2008?
>>
>>153121808
Bleach was nowhere near the level of popularity of the other 2. Definitely not in Japan.
>>
>>153121079
Well Naruto, Goku and Sailor Moon are probably the 3 most well known characters internationally still. Except for maybe Ash if you count him too.
>>
>>153121851
Would have preferred Black and White to Miracle and Magical.

Well who do you propose as the ambassadors? Emiya shirou? Kirino? Araragi?
>>
>>153121079
>>153122420
Seriously, everything fits well here

Naruto is the only one who shouldn't be there but I'm guessing the awful obsession the West has had with it since the 2000's made it inevitable as an "ambassador"
>>
>>153121079
Why have Maho Tsukai on there? It won't be relevant by 2020.

I guess there's going to be a video game ambassador section for Pokemon, Mario, etc.
>>
>>153121079
No, it's perfect. Men, women, children, aliens, monsters, robots and all being iconic characters everybody knows. This was well thought, plus a huge opportunity for Youkai Watch to become as popular as the already popular Pokemon.

huh?
>>
>>153124949
children don't watch the olympics as much my guess. Older people I would say 12 and up who would watch them would recognize these characters more, or they want to push popular japanese characters to sell out side of Japan more.
>>
What's the problem, OP?
>>
>>153125182
Pikachu is more popular and well-known among every demographic.
>>
>>153121079
Where is Doraemon?

Ha.

I'm surprised the maho girls are there instead of the original Black and White. They're much more iconic.
>>
>>153123435

Pikachu was the ambassador for the World Cup
>>
>>153125983

Never heard of either.

Sakura (Card Captor) would have made more sense.

Madness.

I think they will add more along the way, we did see Captain Tsubasa in the reveal video. They're probably choosing character based on a worldwide popularity scale.

Those precure girls look so out of place...

Around 63% actually.

Yeah, that was never going to happen. It wasn't even that influential, stuff like Naruto affected the entire Shonen genre.

No Doraemon? No Pikachu? No Gundam?
At the very least they got Atom, Goku and Usagi. Seiya would've been nice too.
>>
>>153125365
That would be interesting. Who would you put in boxing? Joe or Ippo? In basket? Sakuragi or Kuroko? In soccer? Kanou Kyosuke or Oozora Tsubasa? What about other sports such as baseball, tennis, volleyball? Is there even a handball anime?
>>
>>153121079
If they don't add robots because of size, at the very least they could've added Amuro or Kouji. And the dude from Gatchaman.
>>
>no doraemon
Fake.
>>
>>153128426
Lol.
>>
>>153128304
I have no idea who this character is and I watch a lot of anime. But not the shit made for small children as opposed to man children.

You think pokémon is for children too?

Will yokai even be relevant in 2020 or will level 5 drop it for more inazuma eleven like they should.
>>
Where is Kaneda?
>>
>>153128891
Yes
>>
>>153121079
Why did they put fucking magical girls and no sports anime at all ?
I mean I understand Goku because """martial arts""" but what the fuck are the other doing there.
>>
>>153132231
Because the precure are super powerful magical girls who beat the shit out of their opponents before finishing them off with a magical bassed attack. Sometimes the magical attack is summon a giant woman wearing knuckle braces and punching the enemy into oblivion.
>>
>>153126930
Which one?

>>153121079

Speaking of which, there's pocong outside my window, what do?
>>
>>153122005
From 2005 to 2010 Bleach was all hype.
>>
>>153128932
There's gonna be an Akira homage in the opening ceremony that scares the shit out of everyone.
>>
I surely hope nobody thought any characters other than ones that are for the shounen/shojo demographic and lower were going to be ambassadors
>>
>>153124949
>>153125182
>>153125286
>>153125324

Pikachu is a host of the Olympics along with Doraemon and Mario which is more important than the ambassadors since they'll be around all the time
>>
The only ones I disagree with is having Yokai Watch here. That really is not going to be popular in 2020

>>153132231
Precures are more popular than sports anime.

Also, outside of Haikyuu, there aren't any high profile sports stories that are also merchandiseable. Everything in the OP pic is either iconic (Astro Boy) or is super popular and has a show airing with merchandise (everything else)
>>
>>153121808
Naruto, One Piece and DBZ are popular worldwide since their beginning. Bleach is dead, was never as popular as the real big 3. Also precure is popular in japan.
>>
>>153128891
Autistic children.
>>
>>153128891
The Pokemon anime is for 4 year olds. It is at the same level of pg as dora the explorer.
