SEGA Raw, an upcoming new web series hosted by Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi, is currently holding a competition in which you can design its mascot, and the winner's character will get to promote the show on Japanese streaming site Nico Nico.

The show is looking for a character that incorporates the spirit of SEGA. If you're lucky enough to win the competition, here's what you'll get - an autograph from Nagoshi himself, and all of the merchandise that SEGA produces of your character. Even better is the fact that due to NicoNico having an English version online, this is open to anyone.

Below are the list of rules and how to enter into the competition.

Application Period: Open until June 9th 2013.
