Kirino Kosaka From "Oreimo" Offers PSA About Japan's New, Younger Voting Age

Japanese voting age goes from 20 to 18 in 2016

New Hampshire and BernBros are already old news. Today, it's all about the KirinBros.


Last June, Japan's Diet enacted legislation lowering the nation's voting age from 20 to 18, moving it for the first time since the shift from 25 to 20 in 1945. The change goes into effect this year in time for summer's Upper House election. All this means that "There's No Way My Little Sister Can Be Campaign Girl For 18-Year-Old Voting" as Dengeki teams up with Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications to teach the public about the new changes.


Oreimo light novel author Tsukasa Fushimi and artist Hiro Kanzaki return to their characters for a story in which, while Kyosuke Kosaka is in college, Life Counselling activities lead to 18-year-old Kirino's selection to be a spokes model for the new voting law changes. Kuroneko also makes an appearance.


The book will be distributed at national events and workshops, as well as Dengeki's Spring event on March 13th.
