Continuing from the Portraits post about the recent Coming of Age Day holiday in Japan, here are a few more photos.

The shot above is of the pleasant-vibe Peace, Dude guy from the Portraits post, as are the next two shots...

The next two are of the Trying Her Best girl (“Trying her best to fuse tradition with her desire to shock”), also from the Portraits post. I'm sure she'll appreciate if you notice her legs, and eye colors....

The rest of the shots are mostly random... but mostly gaudy. There seems to be a few mullets in there, too.

Phantastic. For me it was the best post so far. It really looks all professional. I could imagine a book full of such pictures.
