In Japan, This Might Be the Nerdiest Way To Fight Crime

Brian Ashcraft: ''In fall 2011, the Japanese city of Matsudo launched the first in a series of anime style posters, designed to appeal to young people and help stop crime.

Since then, the character, who is named "Aya Matsumiya," has appeared in several poster campaigns to help fight crime. There's even a cosplayer who dresses as the character and sings anime music at local events in Chiba Prefecture, where Matsudo is located.'' (Culture)
