Guess who’s filling Abe’s resigned shoes as PM of Japan? Yep, this 71-year old grandpa, Mr. Yasuo Fukuda. His father was prime minister, actually, from 1976 to 1978—he’s the first 2nd gen PM of Japan.

Too bad Taro Aso lost. That could have been the ultimate otaku revolution. The guy’s a known manga maniac and proponent of having Gundam be the next ambassador to the world.

I don’t know much about Yasuo Fukuda, so maybe I shouldn’t say this yet, but Taro Aso sounded like a nutcase; I’m glad he didn’t win.
