Justice won in Yuru Chara Grand Prix 2018.

On Nov. 18, the webmaster visited Hanazono Central Park to attend Yuru Chara Grand Prix 2018. After the executive committee deleted online votes from suspicious accounts, Kapal, a green mascot, representing the Shiki City Culture and Sports Promotion Public Corporation came from behind to win the Grand Prix.  Kapal is a water sprite based on a local folk tale.  Since Kapal worked so hard, it looked tired at the awarding ceremony and was encouraged by other mascots.  The webmaster was deeply moved at Kapal's 11th-hour changeover and hopes that fair votes will be cast next year.
