Interestoreimo’s Kirino Drums Up Voters For Japan Election
Last year the voting age in Japanese elections was lowered from 20 to 18. To help get out the word and combat widespread voter apathy among the young, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has launched a campaign called “18-sai Senkyo” to drum up voter turnout among 18- and 19-year-olds for this summer’s Upper House elections. Naturally, this involves courting the anime fandom.

At first, Kirino was reluctant to answer, but afterward, admitted his feelings. After he wasn’t chosen for the eleven members, Kariya offered his place to him, by faking a stomach ache.
