New PM Taro Aso depicted as a local hero in Akihabara

I knew that our new prime minister Taro "Rosen" Aso had a special connection with the manga geeks in Akihabara, but was pleasantly surprised to see him honored in such a big way—a cartoon depiction of him decorated the facade of a building. Around the corner, there was this lovely poster of him in various cosplay.

This poster says "He is OUR Taro" and has him in various Japanese costumes with notable quotes. Let’s see if he lasts longer than Fukuda and Abe.
