Japan’s cutest corporate critter

What Japan Thinks - Ne, 01/21/2018 - 16:27

This goo Ranking survey looked at what people thought was the cutest animal corporate logo or emblem.

My favourite on the list here is the Suica penguin, but I’m not sure how the various car logos are cute rather than cool, and Shell’s shell is technically an animal, I suppose, but it’s stretching things a little too far, as is Morinaga’s winged cherub.

Here’s Yamato’s black cat from some special promotion at Shinjuku, looking a bit scary rather than cute:

Just one in seven Japanese use paid-for internet video streaming services

jQuery(window).on('load', function() { var theConfig;theConfig = kenyn_piegraph_stats([66.6, 12.8, 2.4, 18.2], ["Free only", "Fixed-price", "Pay-per-view", "None"], 'What kind of internet video delivery service do you use?', 'myChart1-use-internet-video-service.png');jQuery('.chart-canvas').show(); var ctx = document.getElementById('myChart1-use-internet-video-service.png').getContext("2d"); new Chart(ctx, theConfig); });

This report from ICT Research and Consulting has figures I’ve been wanting to see, taking a look at the use of internet video delivery services.

As a comparison, in the USA 58% of all households have some paid-for service, with the top service being Netflix, with 50% of US households having a subscription.

I don’t have any (and only rarely watch YouTube) and quite frankly I don’t think I could find either the time or energy to watch anything, and I don’t feel my life is in any way empty by not having watched Game of Thrones!

Research results

First, there were statistics and predictions for usage of fixed-price services and pay-per-view:

Paid video distribution service users and predictions  
Fixed Price
Pay-per-view
2015
6.4 million
3.4 million
2016
8.9 million
2.7 million
2017
11.9 million
2.5 million
2018
14.3 million
2.3 million
2019
16.4 million
2.1 million
2020
18.1 million
2.0 million

Note that for the next question, it is not clear how someone would answer if they used both fixed-price and pay-per-view services.
