Not sure what in the hell animal these ladies are supposed be suggesting? Too rounded in the ears to be fox girls...maybe Tanukis? What were they thinking? What were Japanese Men responding to in this image? And why can't I stop laughing?
Update...definitely going for the Tanuki...which is really funny because they are considered a bit raunchy, a bit naughty and wayward..and extremely lovable.
And usually, Tanuki appear in folklore as male...and with enormous testicles upon which they drum, or use to cover their head in a rain storm, or an improvised bed and many other activities which you can see here.
