The original Osu! Tatake! Ouendan! ushered in an era of acceptable male cheerleading the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the 1989 Rose Bowl between the Ball State Nancies and the University of South Carolina Anthropomorphic Phalluses. The sequel looks to reinvigorate the Japanese obsession with all things pom and pom, by giving people exactly what they’re looking for in a game revolving aruond male-cheerleaders-cum-superheroes: more JPop!
The above clip was lifted straight from the Nintendo DS Demo Station version of Osu! Tatake! Ouendan! 2, and if you’re anything like my father, you’re very concerned that I’m so enamored with touching cheerful Japanese men.
