Yup, that's right . . . . Vanta-kun is a Squid. That is the explanation for his uniform number, no doubt. In most Asian cultures the number 8 is considered a lucky number, so Vanta-kun can serve as both a symbol of the local culture and local fisheries industry, as well as a good luck charm. So far we have not had reason to use a term of endearment for the new team from Hachinohe. The Mighty Squids sound a little bit corny, but who knows . . . it may catch on.
