Anime characters as weathermen

Oh, Japan. You never fail to be so interesting. Did you know? Japanese weathermen use anime characters in helping deliver the news, and generally make the weather more interesting. NHK, Japan’s biggest network, has characters like Haru-chan, Spring-chan, Rainy Season-chan, Summer Shougun, Fall-chan, and Winter Shougan.

What a brilliant idea, right? I would infinitely like my weather news delivered by an armour-wearing, Smurf-coloured Winter Shougan than a dull guy in a suit. The cute characters have even developed a fan base and have their own fan art, official figurines, and plush toys.
