You really managed to fuck whit my head now.
I newly watched the movie called “pom poko” and wow, all them balls.O.o
At first i thought it was a studio ghibli thing because I remembered they drawed balls on the cat-bus too.
But no, this is actually a japanese ting.
Here you can clearly see the balls on the cat-bus. It occurs a couple of times, but not as much as in “pom poko”. I tell you, the movie got more display of balls than a regular porn-movie and they happily show you all the stuff you can do with them too. (I do not watch porn, but I guess “pom poko got more balls shown per second.)
they got parachute balls:
Diver bomb balls:
And the do not try to cower them up at all:
Just watch the movie and you will know what I’m talking about.
But enough with the movie!
I did some reading on it and it’s seams to be a lucky charm of some sort.
It is said to bring financially luck and success.
And there is a song children sing about it:
Tan Tan Tanuki no kintama wa,
Kaze mo nai no ni,
The Tan- Tan- Tanuki’s testicles are,
Despite there being no wind blowing,
Swaying, swaying, swaying
It’s so horrible XD
The tanuki has a long history in Japanese legend and folklore. Bake-danuki are a kind of tanuki (ghost) found in the classics and in the folklore and legends of various places in Japan.
Although the tanuki is a real, extant animal, the bake-danuki that appears in literature has always been depicted as a strange, even supernatural animal. The legendary tanuki is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absentminded. It is also a common theme in Japanese art, especially statuary.
GOTTA LOVE THEM BALLS XD
I’m still confused and a little bit disturbed XD
