It's down to character

Out of 99, I think I recognise three familiar ones (above), though I can't remember what the bad-tempered rabbit represented. (The others are for construction and griddled, battered balls of octopus – takoyaki.)

The 96 other collected characters on Pink Tentacle's site I don't know. Some are cute, some functional, some I can't imagine what they're for or why they were chosen. (Why promote an onsen – hot spa – with a pinkly boiled frog, if that's what it is, or mayonnaise with a pig character? )
