JLife recycles heads

There's this magazine that appears at school named JLife and I noticed something really weird about it a little while ago: faces of the multi-ethnic cartoons on the cover are recycled every month. That is to say, each month, the characters' faces are exactly the same. (The only difference I've seen are that the direction that the apparently-Hispanic character are looking was changed once.)

JLife covers have the same faces each month.


It's a bit bizarre, I think. But one delightful little gem came out of this. While I would imagine this to be unintentional, the idea that the stereotype exists here as well is quite amusing.
