Game and Anime Characters Reborn as Japanese Scarecrows

It's late September. In Japan, that means rice is being harvested. And where there are crops, there are scarecrows. Some of them are hardly typical. Thank goodness for that!

In late summer and early autumn, many hold scarecrow festivals. Back in 2012, Kotaku introduced a handful of unique Japanese scarecrows. Here are some of the more interesting ones from this year.

Not all the scarecrows are game and anime characters. That being said, get ready for lots and lots of Yokai Watch scarecrows!
