Imakuni

Who is that guy running around in that bizarre mouse suit, hanging around at the clubs? That's Imakuni, and he's part of Suzuki-san! Suzuki-san is famous for doing songs for the Pocket Monsters TV series, such as the insane "Pokemon Ierukana" (Can You Name Pokemon?). Suzuki-san has done a lot of other songs for Pokemon too, and are big fans of the Pokemon TCG. Heck, an Imakuni card actually exists! Maybe you'll be lucky enough to find it.
