Oreimo star becomes spokesperson for the Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts, and Telecommunications
Posted 2/12/16

Later this year, 18 and 19-year-olds across Japan will suddenly find themselves with a power their predecessors didn’t have: the ability to vote. While legal adulthood still doesn’t technically begin in Japan until the age of 20, last year the government made the decision to lower the voting age from 20 to 18, the first reduction since the 20-year-mark was set following the end of World War II.

They're using 18 year old version of her for the promotional material.

I think the implied message might be "Onii-chan, get up off of your lazy NEET arse and start doing something productive to society for once!"-or, something like that.

-at least, that's the impression I get as one living in a certain area of the U.S.

Maybe it's a subtle message that otaku should vote to legalize sibling-incest to increase child birth rates.

"So while Japan may not be the otaku paradise some imagine it to be, it is nonetheless a country where horny anime fans are being courted as a legitimate political constituency"
