Tokyo's going all in on anime mascots.   They are:  Son Goku, Sailor Moon, Naruto, Atom, Shin Chan, Pretty Cure, One Piece.  Mario and the plumber boys get snubbed.  Not anime enough?

So they want to attract a younger audience with decades old characters?

 

20-something/30-something age group I guess. 

I would imagine that a good number of people (in many countries around the world) who were kids during the late 90's/early 2000's would be familiar with at least one of those anime characters.

The only one that doesn't fit is Atom. Probably should be replaced with Pokemon.
