I love this shot of Iisa King quietly observing the stage. From the Funabashi Market event.

You may remember that great shot of Funassyi on a white horse on a beach. Funassyi revealed that it was a location shoot (shot on the shore of south Chiba, in the Boso area) for a Fuji TV show called Kakuzuke Nippon, that will air on October 25th. I’ve never seen this show so I’m not sure what kind of segment it might be, but the photos of equestrian Funassyi look pretty good.
If you use the LINE app on your smartphone, a new Funassyi theme was released today. And good news - there’s a proper international/English version! It transforms your LINE screens as shown above with Funassyi colors and Funassyi everywhere (contacts without a profile pic set will default to Funassyi’s face). It costs 150 LINE coins, whatever the actual price in real money that is in your local currency.
I love the theme’s description too. Unlike so many Japanese apps and the like, it is in real English, not just a translation:
He’s here, he’s a pear, get used to it! The pear-y fairy from the city of Funabashi is here for his fabled once in 2,000 years visit! This theme will make your LINE app burst with the perfect cocktail of fruit juice and excitement. Try it out for some fruity fun!
You can also get Funassyi LINE stickers from the same developers (UPRIGHT co., Ltd.) 3 sets are available, one of which is animated. (There’s another series of Funassyi LINE stickers based on the Funabiyori anime series, but that’s issued by Nichitele Service and is not available outside Japan.)
Mirror, mirror shining bright
Who’s the Pear with all the might?
