Does Bunpou Chan have a design yet?

Ok, this is super random and I am not sure if it would be better posted in bunfire, but here I am.
I have come across bunpou chan in multiple example sentences and generally like cute mascots.
Bunpou chan sounds like a cute girl, similiar to crunchy rolls crunchy hime or playasias Obake Pam. User kun would be fun as well.
I doubt there is a design yet or an intention to make one, but I think it would be really cool.

So yeah, this is a random post and a feature request at the same time.

Here is my official submission for Bunpou-chan. As a proof of concept, I have drawn her to be ready to go off a very large skateboard ramp. My goal is to have her teach you Japanese grammar as she flips off of items while skateboarding around town.

Eventually, we turn her into an AI and then all the users simultaneously re-enact the movie Her. But that’s 2023 goals, I won’t get ahead of myself.

I think if anything Bunpou-chan is more of a Harpy type figure. She lures you in with her songs of Japanese understanding before turning on you. :joy:

For some reason I was thinking she might be an opossum. Not sure why. I think raccoons are much cuter.

Not you too! The possum fever @Superpnut is spreading has infected a new individual 🥲

So, being a harpy, she can basically cheat while doing her skateboard ollies (ir whatever the jumps are called there)! I also encountered her in the sentences yesterday and was so surprised:). I think, being an artist, I might draw her someday haha.

As someone who is very well-known for my art skills, let me offer you either the portrait of a teacher I drew, or the picture I drew when I was trying to explain to my students what a mermaid was. You’re welcome.

What do you guys think Bunpou-chan should look like? (Not throwing any shade at the beautiful renderings offered by @EdBunpro, @matt_in_mito and @Megumin )

a kimono with the bunpro logo would be nice and maybe dark rings under her eyes because she studies grammar every night
