Who's your fave anime World Cup mascot?

Artists are getting into the swing of the World Cup - by drawing up mascots for the various teams.

Yes, we know the tournament is almost coming to an end, but hey, we figured it's better late than never!

The images first appeared on website Anime News Network on July 7.

An artist who goes by the moniker Big Horse Stadium #13 created 13 "mascots" which means 19 other teams are left woefully short of an unofficial spokesperson.

Perhaps they'll appear later. In any case, here are some of the cast.

Germany will, of course, be taking on Argentina in the final World Cup 2014 showdown on Monday (Jul 14).

Until then, we'll be keeping you abreast of other quirky World Cup developments.
