    About

    Little Busters! Opening Parodies (Japanese: リトバスOPパロ) refers to a series of parody videos for the opening movie for Japanese visual novel game Little Busters![1] produced by a Japanese adult game studio Key.[2] That movie has been a popular template for parodies on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) since the middle of 2008.

    Origin

    The video game Little Busters! was initially released for Windows in July 2007, and several other editions had been released in later years. Its opening movies are made in a typical style for adult games, just moving stock character illustrations along with a theme song, and those have been published as a trailer in several months before the release dates. Among those movies, the opening movie of Little Busters! EX, the adult edition of the 1st title, is used in the most of online parodies. That movie was published as a trailer on the web in June 2008.



    Spread

    Meanwhile, the substantial increase in popularity of this parody video series was triggered by the hit of a video reproducing the EX version by Billy Herrington and Gachimuchi All-Stars in the MAD video style. This video was posted to NND on August 16th, 2008.

    Since that, this opening movie has been a popular template for parodies as well as that of Figu@mate, Nursery Rhyme and Itadaki Jan-Gari-an R in previous. Behind these backgrounds, it contributes to the popularity of the fads that mimicking adult game’s trailer movies by MAD video’s editing style is quite easy.

    About 150 of parody videos had been uploaded by followers in its first year, and the amount of them has been still increasing occasionally on NND.[3] In addition, some of them are reuploaded to YouTube.[4]

  • 12/01/13--04:01: Figu@Mate Opening Parodies
  • About

    Figu@Mate (Japanese: ふぃぎゅ@メイト, Figyu atto Meito) is a Japanese adult game relased by Escu:de in 2006.[1] Its opening movie became to a popular video in the earliest days of the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) due to the typical “Dempa Song”[2] style of the theme song, and became to a subject for parodies and a musical resource for MAD videos.

    Origin

    Figu@Mate was released on November 24th, 2006, and its opening movie including the theme song “Gacha-Gacha Cute Figu@Mate” (ガチャガチャきゅ〜と・ふぃぎゅ@メイト) was uploaded to the official product page for promotion.[3] This song was composed and performed by Mosaic.wav[4], a Japanese moe-pop band well-known for its many dempa song works from the rise of the scene in the first half of 2000s.



    (NSFW!!)

    Spread

    This addictive dempa song came to light on February 6th 2007 when the video was submitted to the beta test version of NND which was running the service by hijacking YouTube videos.[5] It became to one of the hit videos in the earliest days of that video sharing site, alongside Let’s Go! Onmyouji, Kishimen, LoveCheat! and the Prince of Tennis Musical. People had re-created this movie by anime music video (shown below) or classical parody video style, and those much contributed to the chaotic frenzy at the birth of NND. Partly due to the help of the online popularity, this song achieved to release a CD single in April of 2007, and won the Japanese Moe Game Award for best original song in that year.[6]



    AMV style video feat. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    Sadly, there are few historical records archiving the memories of Figu@Mate in those days on NND because most of those instances including the original footage were forced to be removed for violation of the community guidelines for sexual explicit contents in each web services since the opening movie contains girl’s nipples.

    Meanwhile, this song again earned a popularity as a musical resource in MAD videos in around the spring of 2010 when this Shuzo Matsuoka edition was posted to NND.[7] Though its fad was short, dozens of MADs following the style of this video had been created.[8]

  • 12/01/13--04:01: Balsamic Vinegar!
  • About

    Balsamic Vinegar (Japanese: バルサミコ酢, Barusamiko Su), is a catchphrase coined by Tsukasa Kozue in a Japanese TV anime series Luck Star. The quite cute note of this phrase had been a very popular subject for parodies in the early days of the MAD video phenomena on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

    Origin

    The remark “Balsamic Vinegar” is uttered by Tsukasa in the 5th episode of the TV anime aired in May, 2007. In the scene, she got addicted to the feeling of the phrase from a TV informercial which was strangely emphasising "Su"’s accent, and uttered it repeatedly to enjoy its sound.



    Kaori Fukuhara[1], the voice actor for Tsukasa, revealed that scene was an ad-lib of her in an interview uploaded to the official information page for Lucky Star in June of that year.[2]

    Spread

    Lucky Star the most popular TV anime among Otaku in that year also took the part to bring the first light to the dawn of NND’s MAD video phenomena. NND users had been sampling many remarkable phrases and scenes from the show and utilizing them in video parodies from 2007 to 2008. In those instances, Tsukasa’s “Balsamic Vinegar” was a very popular resource as well as Tsukasa Plays the Recorder scene in the 8th episode and her “Penis” (ちんちん, TinTin; abbr. TNTN) remark in the 15th episode.[3] Because of this, Tukasa had sometimes triggered fads of new musical resources in NND’s MAD video scene. For example, A Touhou Project song "(K)night of (K)nights" became to a popular musical resource by the help of Tsukasa’s MAD video in late 2008 (shown below).

    History

    The first versions of One Piece, oneshots Romance Dawn (ロマンス ドーン Romansu Dōn) and Romance Dawn, Ver. 2 were published August 4, 1996 in Shōnen Jump summer special and September 23, 1996 in Weekly Jump respectively.[2][3] They already had the concept of a young boy named Monkey D.

    Plot

    One Piece takes place in a parallel universe, and follows the adventures of the Straw Hat pirates. Their captain and main protagonist is Monkey D. Luffy, also known as “Straw-Hat Luffy”, who has eaten a devil fruit called the Gomu Gomu-fruit, making him a rubber man. The Devil Fruits all grant strange abilities, but also make their user incapable to swim. Luffy’s dream is to find a great treasure called One Piece left by executed Pirate King Gold Roger, and proclaim himself as the new Pirate King. All of Luffy’s crew-mates have their own dreams they wish to achieve by sailing with him. As they travel in the strange world covered mostly by sea, they encounter many enemies and allies, including other pirates and the Marines, who enforce the will of tyrannical World Government, and the seven warlords, pirates who Government has pardoned in exchange of their loyalty.

    Reception

    One Piece is one of the most successful manga series of all time, being the highest selling manga series in Japan[1] and being extremely popular worldwide, among all age- and gender groups.

    No one dies in One Piece

    One Piece is noted of it’s very low death toll outside of flashbacks, with almost no named characters dying at all and often miraculously surviving from the most fatal situations. Two most notable examples are Pell from Alabasta arc somehow surviving a bomb that was supposed to wipe out the whole city, and Pagagya from Skypiea arc who “only lost consciousness” after getting hit by a lightning storm that eradicated the ground below him. The Marineford arc, which is halfway trough the series, marked the first two deaths of main characters with Luffy’s adopted brother Portgas D. Ace and his captain Edward “Whitebeard” Newgate.



    X is Sabo

    After the death of Ace is a flashback arc about how he and Luffy first met and and became adopted brothers along with Ace’s friend Sabo. In the end of the flashback Sabo is apparently killed, which launched a series of theories about him being alive and one of the known characters. They would often go to absurd lengths and became popular a subject of humor and parodies among fans.

  • 12/03/13--15:57: "Diane in 7A" Livetweet Hoax
  • Overview

    “Diane in 7A” Hoax refers to a live-tweeted feud widely believed to have taken place on a flight between TV show producer Elan Gale and a middle-aged female passenger only identified as “Diane” on the day of Thanksgiving in late November 2013. Gale’s live-tweets, which included various quotes and photographs of hand-written notes attributed to “Diane,” instantly went viral on Twitter over the following weekend, though her identity was soon revealed to be an elaborate hoax staged by Gale.

    Background

    On November 28th, 2013, Elan Gale, a producer for ABC’s reality dating show The Bachelor, began tweeting[1] about a rowdy passenger on his homebound flight:




    According to Gale’s account, he then approached the woman with a handwritten note criticizing her for being self-centered and causing nuance to others, triggering a back-and-forth exchange of passive-aggressive remarks between them (shown below, from left to right). Gale continued to bring the latest developments in real-time via Twitter.



    Notable Developments

    On Twitter

    Gale’s live-tweeting operation instantly went viral as it happened, and in the following hours, his Twitter following skyrocketed by 140,000 people while his tweets racked up several thousands of retweets and favorites. According to the Twitter analytics service Topsy, Gale’s handle @theyearofelan was mentioned more than 66,000 times and the hashtags #TeamElan and #DianeCanEatMyD were mentioned at least 9,900 times and 4,100 times, respectively. In addition, Gale’s tweets were also compiled into a Storify article titled “This Man is Hilariously Live-Tweeting His Flight-And-Feud With The Woman in #7A,” accruing almost 5.5 million views in less than a week.



    News Media Coverage

    By 4 p.m. (ET), BuzzFeed had picked up on the story in an article titled “This Epic Note-Passing War On A Delayed Flight Won Thanksgiving,” and throughout the rest of the day, Elan’s tweets continued to make rounds across many Internet news sites and mainstream news publications, including ABC, The Huffington Post, The Guardian, The San Francisco Chronicle and E! Online, among many others.

    Diane’s Rumored Cancer

    On the following day, someone claiming to be a cousin of Diane came to her defense by posting a comment in the Storify article, which chastised Gale for harassing a stranger without knowing her circumstances and revealed a shocking detail that their reunion was going to be the last chance for Diane to spend time with the entire family due to her stage IV small cell lung cancer.

    Diane is my cousin. I want to thank you for not pressing charges against her for slapping you. She would have been arrested for that, and spending a few days in jail would have been a particularly cruel irony under the circumstances. I am a bit surprised you said you could hear her breathing, because Diane has stage IV small cell lung cancer. This would have been her last Thanksgiving with us. I say “would have” because she did miss her connecting flight. She arrived this morning, having spent the night in a hotel in Phoenix. Admittedly, Diane hasn’t been handling her imminent death very well, but she really was looking forward to being with us and the rest of her family- all of whom were flying in for one last Thanksgiving with her. In her defense, she was very contrite and upset about her behavior on the plane. Certainly everybody wanted to get where they were going, but perhaps she can be forgiven for thinking that her need was more pressing than most. Thanksgiving has always been Diane’s favorite holiday, and her comment about the stuffing is true- she was the “keeper of the family recipe” and all of her nieces were planning to be instructed (one more time) in the mysterious ways of Auntie Diane’s stuffing. Since she missed her connecting flight, this did not occur. We are going to try to get as many of the family together as we can tomorrow, but that is up in the air. The plans were all for yesterday. I wish you had known her before she got cancer. You would have loved her. She was bright, funny, and compassionate, and had a self-deprecating sense of humor. She taught elementary music. She loved kids. She loved to laugh. She was everybody’s favorite aunt. Actually, she still is.

    Hoax Revealed

    Then on December 2nd, Elan Gale tweeted a picture of an empty chair with the message “Here is Diana sitting in a chair,” implying that the woman he tweeted about had been an elaborate scheme.

    According to the hoax investigation website Snopes,[1] a story about a Chinese man named Jian Feng who sued his wife for bearing unattractive offspring was published as early as June 2004, when it was published in the Heilongjian Morning Post.[2] The article claimed that Feng won a lawsuit against his wife after she confessed to having plastic surgery following the birth of their “ugly baby daughter.”

    A Chinese man has divorced and sued his wife for £55,000 after discovering she’d had plastic surgery before they met. Jian Feng, 38, was said to have been “horrified” when she gave birth to an ugly baby daughter. He suspected her of having an affair. His wife then confessed to having plastic surgery costing £70,000 in South Korea before they met and showed him a picture of how she used to look. He filed for divorce two years after marrying her following a whirlwind romance. The Heilongjiang Morning Post said Jian successfully sued for deceit.

  • 12/08/13--05:14: Big Blue MADs
  • Editor’s note: This article describes not the song itself, but a MAD video fad for the song which is deeply influenced by dirty gay porn videos.



    About

    Big Blue MADs refers to a series of MAD videos featuring the song “Decide in the Eyes”, better known by the course name Big Blue, a popular soundtrack in Nintendo’s video game series F-Zero.[1]

    This hard rock tune featuring shred guitar sound has been suffering a cult following from annoying Japanese internet users, Inmufags or fans of the Japanese gay porn meme A Midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream, and has been set to a subject for their favorite dirty MAD videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) since 2010.

    Origin

    “Big Blue” first appears as the second course of the original F-Zero released in 1990. Its theme song, “Decide in the Eyes” written by Japanese game composer Naoto Ishida, is one of the most famous tunes representing this video game series, and its arranged versions have continued to be included in almost all of subsequent F-Zero series. This stage and the song also have made guest appearances with Captain Falcon, the main character in the series, in Super Smash Brothers series and 2013 game Nintendo Land.[2]



    Spread

    This song had been occasionally set to a subject for musical covers by guitar freaks, or used in handful of MAD videos on NND. But the increase of unwanted popularity to the song was suddenly triggered by MAD editors addicted to the gay porn meme, A midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream, and the video “Big Yajue” (shown below, left) which featured the SSBB version of “Big Blue” and their favorite actor Yajuu Senpai (野獣先輩, lit. Beastly Senior). It was posted on August 10th, 2010[3], where “8.10” can be read as “Hatten”, a Japanese slang meaning of “Gay Sex”, and “Yajuu” in Japanese. This video has derived to a series of bait and switch videos pretending beautiful four seasons videos, which is called “Four Seasons Video Series” (四季の映像シリーズ). And its form of beauty was completed by the Cookie☆MAD titled “Big Cookie” posted on April 24th, 2011 (shown below, right). This video itself also has tens of followers tagged under “Big Cookie Series” (BigCookieシリーズ).


    【ニコニコ動画】【復活】Big Yajue【モザイク追加】【ニコニコ動画】Big cookie
    Editor’s note: This “BigYajue” is not the original, but a censored version.

    Since after, over a hundred of “Big Blue” MAD videos influenced by the dirty gay porn tastes are uploaded to NND.[4] Moreover, even normal game videos for F-zero series or “Big Blue”[5] has also been suffering on dirty in-jokes by Inmufags. This Inmufag’s rude behavior in the outside of their commune is one of the reasons why they have continued earning hatred from many Japanese internet users.

  • 12/08/13--05:14: Shining Spiral Shit
  • About

    Shining Spiral Shit (Japanese: シャイニングスパイラルウンコ, Shining Spiral Unko, abbr. SSU) is a catchphrase coming from phonetic translations in “Heavenly Star”, a song for PlaystationPotable’s puzzle game LuminesII[1] released by Q entertainment in 2006. It was written by a music and visual project Genki Rockets[2] organized by Japanese game desinger Tetsuya Mizuguchi[3], and nominated for the best song category at the 2006 Spike TV Video Game Awards.[4]

    In the middle of 2008, a glitch ocurred on the daily popular video chart in the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND), and it accidentally led a cult following from Japanese internet users to the song, who were addicted to the phonetic translation lyrics coined by comments in the official music video on NND.

    Origin

    The music video for “Heavenly Star” was uploaded to NND not only by a user in July 2007[5], but also by the official in November of that year[6] as the part of a partnership campaign of NND and Japanese recording company AVEX, NND’s largest stockholder where Genki Rockets had been belonged to in those days. And the phonetic translation line “Shining Spiral Shit” had been mentioned in both of videos in before, but it was a minor in-joke.

    On June 10th, 2008. NND’s daily popular video chart occurred a glitch of displaying video rankings not by popularity but by alphabetical order of video’s ID.[7] In this accident, top 100 in the chart were hijacked by AVEX’s official videos since those had IDs beginning from “ax”, different from that of usual NND videos beginning from “sm” or “nm”. And because the video ranked into the 1st place by this glitch was “Heavenly Star”, it forced to become the target of criticism against the glitch, and drew much negative attention.

    Meanwhile, it also made many NND users be inspired by that silly one liner. Then they quickly created the complete version of funny phonetic translation lyrics on the floating comments of the video on the same day.



    Editor’s Note: NND’s video which was given the phonetic translation lyrics is edited version into 2 and a half minutes. So the lyrics for the latter part doesn’t exist.

    Via: LetsSingIt[8] (Original lyrics) and Nico Nico Pedia[9] (Japanese lyrics)

    Interpretation

    • Both “Wewewe”, “Wei” and “Weeeei” are Japanese internet slang meaning “Yeah” or “lol”.
    • “Vibe(rators)”, “Lotion” and “Anal” are familiar adopted English words in Japanese language, which are usually used in sexual context.
    • “Ah-!” is the representative moaning voice in Japanese gay porn memes: A Midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream and Billy Herrington / Gachimuchi Remixes

    Spread

    By the help of NND’s floating comment feature working like subtitles, the lyrics of “Shining Spiral Shit” immediately spread to the whole over the web site. This story was soon summarized into a video posted on the following day.[10] Then, the video finally had gathered more than 30 thousands comments of praising the silly lyrics within that year, a single service website “ShiningSpriral.com”[11] was launched, and even niconico staffs showed an approval to the song in their blog posts.[12]

    In addtion, dozens of parodies for the music video[13] were created under the influence of this MAD videos titled “Tokachi’s Shining Spiral Shit”[14] by Wakamura-P, the famous creator in THE iDOLM@STER meme (shown below). And this weird popularity among NND users has put this song into many niconico medleys including “The 7 colors of Nico Nico Douga”.[15]



    However, all comments on the video was hidden when avex launched its official channel on NND in December of that year.[16] Now, there is nothing left on NND that tells us the frenzy for the video.

    Mori! Mori!” (Japanese: ┌(^o^)┘モリ!┌(^o^)┘モリ!) refers to a weird movement with a strange call for Karate practise in a TV anime series for Japanese manga Kotoura-san.[1] It became to a subject for MAD videos in the Japanes video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) in the beginning of 2013.

    Origin

    The TV anime series aired 12 episodes from January to March of 2013. And “Mori! Mori!” appeared in the 2nd episode, where people were training at a Karate Dojo run by the parents of the protagonist’s classmate called Moritani.



    This weird exercise which isn’t seem at all to a karate training is a homage to the original manga. In the anime, Moritani family’s business has been changed from a new religious group to a karate dojo for various reasons. And, the original “Mori! Mori!” posing in the manga was that religious group’s solicitation poster in past (shown, below, left) and its catch copy was “Mori Mori Hairou Moritani-kyo!!” (モリモリ入ろう 森谷教!!, lit. “Let’s heartily join onto Moritani group!!”). This ridiculous posing in the solicitation poster was also parodied into the dojo’s poster in the 5th episode (shown below, right).



    Spread

    This quite short scene caught an attention among anime freaks and several MAD editors who were seeking new resources for their works in that season. Then, a MAD video fad was triggered by a Masked DeDeDe remix video posted to NND on January 20th, 2013 (shown below). And over 130 videos parodying the scene had been uploaded to NND during the running period of the anime series.[2] Especially, this call has been often associated with forest songs in Pokemon because Moritani’s “Mori” means “Forest” in Japanese.

  • About

    Kill Me Dance (Japannese: キルミーダンス) is an incoherent choreograph dance invented in a Japanese 4-panel manga Kill Me Baby.[1] This crazy dance became to a subject for dancing covers and hand-drawn animated videos on the Japanese web in 2012.

    Origin

    The first appearance of “Kill Me Dance” was on the first comic book cover’s backside which was released in January 2009. It shows 16 “discontinuous” movements with the caption “Let’s make a flipbook by clipping each panels and sorting them along the numbers! Make an anime by yourself!”.



    Then, the TV anime series for this manga aired from January to March of 2012 visualized this joke into the real dance in the ending movie with the theme song “The True Secrets of the Pair’s Feelings” (ふたりのきもちのほんとのひみつ Futari no Kimochi no Honto no Himitsu) sung by voice actors Mutsumi Tamura[2] and Chinatsu Akasaki.[3]



    Spread

    By given the animated version, “Kill Me Dance” succeeded to catch an attention among anime otakus. They soon began mimicking this crazy dance by hand-drawn animation or Miku Miku DanceCGI characters. In addition, some challengers had tried dancing “Kill Me Dance” in real. The momentum of those fanworks was triggered by these earliest instances posted to the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) in late January/early February of that year.

    Xepher is a popular soundtrack from a Japanese arcade music rhythm video game beatmania IIDX, which is produced by KONAMI as a part of BEMANI line. This song had been featured due to its funny phonetic translations, and also utilized as a musical resource for MAD videos in the early days of the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

    Origin

    Xehpher is written by a Japanese compoer Tatsuya Shimizu, the creator of another popular BEMANI song REDZONE and better known as his alias Tatsh. This song was first included in beatmania IIDX 12 Happy Sky[1] released for Japanese arcade in July 13th, 2005. As shown by its genre “MEDIEVALCHOIR”, the feature of this song is its solemn chorus sung by Japanese singers Junko Hirata and Tomomi Natori.



    This song has been also imported to other BEMANI titles: DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA, Toy’s March 2 and Sound VOLTEX.

    Spread

    When the song caught an attention on the web for the first time, its subject was the funny phonetic translated lyrics coined by a website mundane BM.[2] That nonsensical lyrics spread on the web via a flash movie made by an amateur flash creator hecipu in November 2005.[3]

    Via: RemyWiki (original lyrcis)[4]and mundare BM (misheard lyrics)

    Nowadays, “Satsujin Gyouza” (lit. Murder Jiaozi) is better known as the phonetic translation for “Stars in your eyes (heart)” since a poisoning incident happened in frozen dumplings (Gyoza or Jiaozi) that was imported from China in 2008.[5]

    After NND’s launch in 2007, this song was closed up again as a musical resource for MAD videos that had been rapidly growing up on that video sharing service in those days. That momentum was led by “Xepher-WAWAWAMix”[6], a MAD video in a catch phrase fad WaWaWa Wasuremono that was derived from Japanese TV anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.



    Since then, Xepher had been one of the well-used musical resources in MAD videos till around 2009.[7]

  • About

    Japanese Fart Porn MADs, known as “Puri-Puri-Pu! Series” (Japanse: プリップリップーッ!シリーズ), refers to a series of MAD videos sampling a fetish fart porn video of Japanese ladies farting to a man looking like an American. Those kinky MAD videos are also called by “Dr. Nishikawa” (西川先生) on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND), which name comes from a nickname given to an actress in this video.

    Origin

    The fart porn video, Farting Punishment, was released by a Japanese minor porn production company Fart FeTish Club (FTC) on August 18th, 2004.[1] In the story, a man looking like an American tried to steal a lady’s pantie, but got found and subdued by ladies. Then he forces to smell their fresh farts for punishment. The well-known footage in this video is a part where a lady calling herself Lisa is straddling onto his face and mercilessly continues farting with refusing his pleading. A Lisa’s remark in this scene, “Puri-Puri-Pu!”, is a Japanese onomatopoeia for farting sounds.

    Man: Ohaa… Please Stop it!
    Lisa: Stop it? I can’t stop it! Go! Go!

    Man: Oh, it’s terrible.
    Lisa: You like this, huh?

    Man: I want to go home…
    Lisa: No, you’re far from over. Oh, it’s getting more fragrant. You like this fragrant thing, right?

    Spread

    This video came to light when it was uploaded on January 8th, 2008[2], though it had appeared on NND for the first time on May 20th, 2007.[3]NND users were fascinated with its strange combination of a quite kinky fart porn and a foreigner actor, its situation where they establish a conversation even though speaking different languages each other and Lisa’s punchline “Puri-Puri-Pu!”. Lisa got a nickname “Dr. Nishikawa” from NND users since she resembles to a Japanese celebrity doctor Ayako Nishikawa[4], and became to one of the icons in the early days of NND. In addition, she is also called by an alias “The Fairy of Wind” (風の妖精), which is given in the same manner to Billy Herrington‘s “The fairy of Forest” and Shuzo Matsuoka’s “The Fairy of Fire”.

    Then, this video became to a popular visual resource for MAD videos in the spring of 2008.[5] However, those instances in the early exciting days have been lost since FTC had removed those NND videos by claiming copyright or portrait right infringements in the middle of that year.
