Thanks to everyone who sent in suggestions for what our (currently) nameless new tanuki mascot should be known as. We already knew we had the most amazing fans ever, but seeing the creativity in the thousands of name suggestions was truly the best!
We put our heads together with The Dark Lord and after hours of trying to narrow the list down (and other Anime related distractions) we have finally done it! Songs will most likely be written about our mascot and sung throughout the universe until the end of time, so we knew we had to choose wisely!
Without further adieu, we present to you the Final 5 names! Now we just need you to vote for your favorite and get this list down to just 1.
And as an extra bonus and because we’re sooo excited about our mascot getting a name soon, we’re going to give away 2 $25 gift cards just for voting! So share this link with your friends and vote for your favorite name. Voting will remain open from October 15 - 30 to vote for your favorite name. The big reveal will come October 31 and we’ll have a celebration give away some more prizes.
The winning mascot name will be selected based on originality, creativity and quality by the Right Stuf Anime team. If the same mascot name suggestion is submitted multiple times, and that name is selected as a first prize, second prize or honorable mention favorite of the judges, a single winner will be randomly selected from all those who submitted entries with that same mascot name. The winners will be notified by Right Stuf Anime on or about October 31, 2018. Right Stuf Anime will make reasonable efforts to notify the winners using the contact information provided with the entry. In Right Stuf Anime’s sole discretion, a selected winner may be required to forfeit a prize and an alternate winner selected in accordance with these Official Rules from among the remaining eligible entries for that prize if a selected winner (i) is unreachable, (ii) declines or cannot accept, receive or use the prize for any reason, or (iii) is found by Right Stuf Anime to have failed to comply with these Official Rules.
