Needs a 4th choice, none of these.

9 ( +11 / -2 )

I kind of agree with Harry. But of the three I picked A . C looks more Chinese to me.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

What happened to the innovation in Japan? Is Pokémon-like characters the only way to go?

2 ( +5 / -3 )

None of the above jump out as Wow, that’s a good one.

A and B are obvious ripoffs of anime; possibly Pokemon. C is static and boring. (No movement, no excitement.)

1 ( +2 / -1 )

How about " none of the above "?

3 ( +5 / -2 )

What are these supposed to be ?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Had to go with C because of the Okami reference.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

I'd like to see the C fox and tanuki looking a little more dynamic. Love the faces, but B has more action. They are all fine and much better than the London thingies. I don't remember what Rio's mascots looked like.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

none

3 ( +4 / -1 )

C is the most Japanese-looking.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

None of them. They are all horrible!

1 ( +2 / -1 )

None - all awful.

Of course there is always Kumamon. Pity he's from Kyushu and not Kanto.

Or even Katsuo Ningen from Kochi (see: https://globalvoices.org/2015/03/11/katsuo-ningen-the-humanoid-severed-fish-head-that-won-japans-heart/)

2 ( +2 / -0 )

If there's any event that's cryin' for Fukuppy, this is it.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I still think there should be a national mascot playoff and the winning pair are the Olympic representatives

-1 ( +0 / -1 )
