  • 12/08/13--05:15: Creeparka
  • About

    Creeparka (Japanese: クリーパーカー; Kurīpākā) refers to a hoodie decorated with Creeper, an iconic mob in the video game Minecraft. The hoodie is usually worn by sexy characters in most of illustrations on the Japanese illustrators communities pixiv and Nico Nico Seiga. They are called as a moegijinka version of Creeper, “Creeparka-san” (クリーパーカーさん) or “Crepaka-san/chan” (クリパカさん/ちゃん) for short.

    Origin

    The idea of Creeparka, a blended word of “Creeper” (クリーパー; Kurīpā) and “Parka” (パーカー; Pākā), comes from the Japanese language that expresses hoodie by a borrowed English word “Parka”. And that Creeparka hoodie was first visualized by a Japanese amatuer illustrator called 221. His illustration named with “Creeparka” was uploaded to pixiv on April 9th, 2011[1] and Nico Nico Seiga on 18th of that month.[2]



    Spread

    The trigger that led to a substantial increase in popularity of the hoodie was the other illustration. It was drawn by niconico user otomix who is also a popular uploader of "Let’s Play" videos for Minecraft in the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND). That illustration titled “Reeper-chan” (リーパーちゃん) was first appeared on his video posted on July 14th, 2011[3], and then uploaded to Nico Nico Seiga on the following day.[4]



    The hoodie finally succeeded to reach to a large audience by the help of his popularity among Minecraft fans on NND. Illustrations for Creeparka began explosively increasing in Japanese illustrators communities Nico Nico Seiga[5] and pixiv.[6] Throughout those following works, Creeparka became to be associated with moe characters, mainly sexy girls wearing only the hoodie. Those characters are usually called “Creeparka-san” or “Crepaka-san/chan” for short. Creeparka-san is also active in dozens of parody videos on NND.[7] Creeparka-san is sometimes dubbed “Meister” (匠; Takumi) by linking his/her exploder nature to a specialist of house remodeling.

    Meanwhile, Creeparka had been already exported to the outside of Japan within its birth year. The amount of Creeparka illustrations on the English illustrators community deviantART is more than 800[8], and those have continued to be posted since the late of 2009.

    Official Creeparka

    The official Creeper zip-up hoodie was released by Jinx in July 2012 (shown below, left).[9] And Creeper hoodie avatar items for X360 were released in September[10] and December[11] of 2012 (shown below, center & right).




    However, it seems that there are no relationships between these official goods and the Creeparka meme on the web.

  • 12/08/13--05:15: I'm Hungry
  • About

    I’m Hungry (Japanese: おなかすいた; Onakasuita) is a song written by a famous Vocaloid composer Lamaze-P (ラマーズP).[1] The cute music video for this song has been set for a subject for hand-drawn animated videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

    Origin

    The song “I’m hungry” was uploaded to NND on February 2nd, 2010. Different from his previous works that featured UTAU or Vocaloids, this song, just repeating the phrase “I’m hungry”, was sung by a female utaite[2] or NND singer Hachimitsu Inu (はちみつ犬; lit. Honey Dog).[3] And as same as his previous works "Get Down" and "Fukkireta", the video for this song is a simple loop animation made by the creator himself.


    【ニコニコ動画】おなかすいた/犬

    Spread

    This Lamaze-P’s song quickly spread on NND as well as his other works. Moreover, some people inspired by the video began reproducing it by their own rendition partly due to its quit convenient editing style that required only 3 frames for reproductions. One of the triggers of this hand-drawn animation fad was Touhou Project character Sakuya Izayoi’s version that was posted to NND on the same date as the original video uploading.

    About 100 of videos in this series had been posted to NND in its first month and the amount of those videos has been still increasing gradually.[4]

  • 12/08/13--11:36: Professional Wrestling
  • [Currently A Work In Progress]

    About

    Professional wrestling is a form of entertainment that combines athleticism and theatrics. It portrays itself as a combat sport taking place for wrestling championships while predetermining the outcomes of the matches to focus on providing the most entertainment possible for the audience. Placed alongside the matches are promos, or skits that are meant to attract interest or develop a story-line put in place. The professional wrestling industry formerly portrayed itself as a legitimate sport, though when it became harder to hide the secrets of the business, it became an open secret for audiences. The choreographed nature of professional wrestling is not discussed during shows in order to help sustain a willing suspension of disbelief.

    History

    Professional wrestling began in France around 1830, when showmen presented wrestlers under names such as “Edward, the steel eater”, “Gustave d’Avignon, the bone wrecker”, or “Bonnet, the ox of the low Alps” and challenged members of the public to knock them down for 500 francs.

    The modern style of professional wrestling, popularized by the United States and United Kingdom during the late 19th century, is called the catch-as-catch can style. Originally thought of as unorthodox and more lax in style, catch wrestling differs from Greco-Roman in its allowed grapples; Greco-Roman strictly prohibits grabbing below the waist, while catch wrestling allows holds above and below the waist, including leg grips. But, from the late 19th century onwards, a sub-section of catch wrestling changed slowly into the sport known worldwide as pro-wrestling, recognized as much for its theatrical antics and entertainment as wrestling ability. However, this change did not become predominant until following the Second World War, and there are still forms of Shoot wrestling existing in professional wrestling, in the present day.

    The most notable foreign countries that have a rich history in professional wrestling are Mexico and Japan.
    Luchadores, the common name for Mexican wrestlers, are known for their high-flying acrobatics and intricate submissions while puroresu was the genre of wrestling headed by Japan. Mexico indulges in some of the over-the-top antics of modern-day American pro wrestling while Japan is distinct in its psychology and presentation of the sport. It is treated as a legitimate fight, with fewer theatrics; the stories told in Japanese matches are about a fighter’s spirit and perseverance. In strong style, the style most typically associated with puroresu, full contact martial arts strikes and shoot submission holds are implemented. Both styles of wrestling implemented by these two countries, lucha libre and puroresu, have influenced American wrestling in presentation and in-ring ability, with stars such as Antonio Inoki, Rey Mysterio, and Eddie Guerrero having matches with American wrestlers or wrestling in United States promotions.

    Impact

    Professional wrestling began to flourish in the 1950’s, during the introduction of television. The man considered responsible for popularizing modern wrestling in American television was George Raymond Wagner, better known as “Gorgeous George”. In 1941 in Eugene, Oregon, Wagner debuted in his Gorgeous George persona, playing the role of a heel (or villain). He drew the ire of fans in attendance thanks to his exaggerated “pretty boy” behavior, quickly drawing in crowds in subsequent shows all wanting to see and ridicule Gorgeous George. Wagner developed his persona to be more antagonistic by cheating at every possible chance during his matches and having a snooty, pompous personality. When television was looking for programming to fill time slots, they looked toward professional wrestling. Gorgeous George made his first television appearance on November 11, 1947 and he immediately commanded the same star power as Lucille Ball and Bob Hope, revolutionizing professional wrestling from being just about the action to the theatrics and characters. George could also be credited with singe-handedly establishing television as a worthy entertainment medium in the United States.

    In 1942, the famous Mexican hero known as El Santo (The Saint) made his debut in Mexico City, dressed in silver tights and wearing a silver mask. El Santo won an 8-man Battle Royal and the public became heavily interested in the masked wrestler. His career went on for five decades, his popularity rising to the point of becoming a folk hero for the common man. El Santo appeared in comic books and over fifty-two movies, with the public interest becoming so great that El Santo was always wearing his trademark mask, wearing different masks that was designed for a specific scenario, even for sleeping. Much like Gorgeous George, El Santo brought much attention and profit to professional wrestling programming all over Mexico.

  • 12/11/13--00:54: Your Mother Jerks Off Pigs
  • About

    “Your mother jerks off pigs.” is a non-sequitur rebuttal for an argument that concluded a 2 day long flamewar within the comments of a reddit submission posted early December of 2013.

    Origin

    The argument arose in the comment section of a submission titled “Blindfold dildo prank…in da hood.”[1] One of the residents of the area clearly gestures that he is going to punch the prankster and the incident appears in the video in the span of 2 or 3 seconds. User “Fartingsunshine” refers to the man drawing back to punch the prankster as a “violent degenerate” and is replied to by another user who insinuates that Fartingsunshine came to that conclusion due to the race of the person involved. A 2 day flamewar ensues with accusations of racism, and denials and assertions of the gestures exhibited in the video.

    The argument concludes with the following exchange.

    User fb95dd7063:

    I even screenshotted it for you and the man is clearly not drawing his arm back. You see what you want to see. You want to see him as a violent degenerate.

    I see a guy upset at being taunted and mocked on camera.

    In any case. I’m sorry (not really) that you think a white guy (me) is racist for saying “white people”

    We have reached an impasse and as a result anything else I post here is gonna be pasta.

    FartingSunshine:

    Yeah because you screenshot something that doesn’t show any motion. The video shows him drawing back as if he is going ot punch the guy.

    Your mother jerks off pigs. She gets down on her knees and crawls through the pigpiss mud slop and snuggles up to the pig, her fingers tracing along it’s belly until she finds it’s cock. She begins tugging and stroking as her twat moistens, her breasts swelling and her nipples begin to stick out like erasers on a fresh #2 pencil. She grunts with satisfaction as the pig begins eagerly thrusting into her hand, her grip now tightening to maintain control of the pig’s greasy corkscrew cock. She lowers her head to watch the cock work in her hand, groans with satisfaction and begins working her clit with her other muddy hand, her hips gyrating with the rhythm of the pig’s thrusting.

    “Oh fucking jesus god yes..” she gasps. She changes positions, still maintaining control of the feverishly thrusting cock as the pig’s squealing intensifies. She leans forward and with her lips almost touching the pig’s ear, she whispers your name and begins to shudder. She turns her attention again to the pigs swollen member rocking in her hand. She presses it between her hand and her face, the pig thrusting it against her cheeks as she drools. With a massive grunt and a high pitched squeal, the pig’s balls explode, beginning a massive shower of hot, sour pig jizz. You mother cups one hand under the fountain of steaming genetic material gathering it in her hand as the thrusting comes to an end. The pig shudders and begins to walk to the trough of slop in the corner of it’s pen, but your mother tackles it to the ground. She lifts it’s tail and smears the handful of pig load into the pig’s own fetid butthole, turning flakes of crusty pig shit into a pigshit-pigjizz mud slop on the pigs ass. Now she tilts her head to the sky and screams your name, not once, not twice, but three times. She slams her face full force into the pig’s butthole and it’s wreath of shitsemen pudding, her tongue machine gun flicking the rim and then burying itself to the hilt inside the pig’s hot colon. Your mother works her tongue around the inside of the pigs ass, and then as a few incoherent syllables escaped her now brown lips, spurts of female ejaculate spurt from her pulsating cunt. Exhausted, she collapses in the mud, rolls over onto her back, and lights a cigarette. She takes one long drag, looks again to the sky, and speaks your name one last time before she drifts off to sleep.

    That’s your mom. Your mom does that.

    Spread

    The comment thread initially ended there for a day or more before being found and submitted by a member of the /r/subredditdrama.[2] The post quickly ascended to /r/subredditdrama’s front page. The users of /r/subredditdrama rushed to the thread and despite largely downvoting most of u/fartingsunshine’s comments, the climactic “Your mother jerks off pigs” comment had received as of the writing of this article 150 upvotes and one month of “Reddit Gold”,a gift with a U.S. $5 value. SRD commentators heralded the the 2 paragraph insult as “brilliant”, “pure shock and awe”, “a spellbinding narrative”, and “the nuclear option of arguing”.

    Copypasta Usage

    Within 2 days ’Your mother jerks off pigs." appeared as copypasta in several places on Reddit. One Askreddit Comment of the copypasta, answering the question “If you could only post the same one sentence to everything you wanted to reply to on reddit, what would your sentence be?”[3] received over 1,000 comment karma within a day. The copypasta also began appearing outside of Reddit at approximately the same time, including uses and references by Dutch twitter users, appearance on funkyjunk.com,[4] a message board for fans of the band “Phish”[5] and even the Facebook group Spooderman,[6] where users reported and requested removal of the post in under 5 minutes.

  • 12/14/13--18:04: You Sit On A Throne Of Lies
  • About

    “You Sit On A Throne Of Lies” is statement by Will Ferrell in the 2003 family-comedy film Elf. The quote is commonly used to satirize statements that are evidently contradictory or dishonest.

    Origin

    The quote originally comes from a scene in which Buddy The Elf (Will Ferrell’s character) encounters a mall Santa. Buddy had been expecting the actual Santa Claus (as he had met the man in person and looked up to him), and was left disillusioned when he discovers that this “Santa” is just a man in a costume. Buddy then whispers insults at the man indicating his disgust towards the “impostor”, at one point telling the man “You sit on a throne of lies!”

    Spread

    In 2005, the quote gained popularity on humor website YTMND when user Cryokenetic uploaded a site that contained a picture of Buddy paired up the audio from the scene and matching text.[1] The site received over 3,000 votes and maintains an average of 3.63/5.[2] The sound file used on the website was also used on over 30 similar YTMND sites, and an alternate sound file was used on several other YTMND sites.[3][4]

    Since then, Meme Generator has created templates for Buddy The Elf, featuring macros containing the quote in question and several others related to the character.[5][6] In addition, the phrase is used frequently on photo-sharing website Pinterest.[7]

  • 12/15/13--05:00: I Want to Die
  • About

    I Want to Die” (Japanese: 死にたい, Shinitai) refers to an uplifting animated gif made in the Japanese imageboard community Futaba Channel (2chan) circa early 2006. In contrast to its negative message, this picture is known for its positive image giving viewers the hope of life.

    Origin

    According to Nico Nico Pedia’s article[1], the animated gif was made in Nijiura, the most aggressive boards in Futaba, for a troll who had continued making threads with the only one sentence “I want to die”. Nijiura users made several ridiculously hilarious animated gifs to satirize the guy who apparently didn’t had such mind. And, this psychedelic one shining like a garish neon sign (shown above) was one of those instances.

    Then, the video edition was created and uploaded to YouTube on April 19th, 2006[2], which played 1999 hit rave tune “Got the Groove” by German electro duo SM-Trax[3] in background.



    Spread

    This Futaba’s in-joke began to be known gradually among Japanese internet users after that video was reuploaded to Nico Nico Douga (NND) in April 2007[4], and became to a subject for parodies or MAD videos on NND circa 2008.[5] In a reflection of its presence on NND, the song “Got the Groove” has been included into several Nico Nico medleys such as “The 7 Colors of Nico Nico Douga” in 2009.

    Meanwhile, this animated gif also earns a strange but positive reputation for its suicide prevention effect. People praises it that watching this hilariously uplifting picture makes people notice how ridiculous it is to have negative minds when they are disappointed in life and thinking “I want to die”. A blog summarizing 2channel threads picked up a 2channel user’s voice for the animate gif, which said that was a magical animated gif erasing a death wish.[6]

  • About

    Haou Airen (Japanese: 覇王愛人; lit. Supreme King’s Mistress)[1] is a Japanese shoujo comic written by Mayu Shinjo, usually called Mayu-tan (まゆたん) among fans.[2] In this manga, there are many well-known scenes among Japanese internet users due to their ridiculousness, and the most famous 2 scenes are called “Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu” and “The Best Assassin in the World” in each. These have been set to a subject for parodies on 2channel and the Japanese illustrators community pixiv since the middle of 2000s.

    Origin

    The Best Assassin in the World

    The Best Assassin in the World (世界一腕の立つ殺し屋, Seaki Ichi Ude no Tatsu Koroshiya) is a nickname given to an assassin with no name who was hired to kill Haku Ron, the main character and a young boss of the largest mafia in Hong Kong. His nickname comes from a client’s order “I want the best assassin you can get!”. He became famous for the scenes in chapter 11 and 12, where he attempted to shoot Haku Ron in a park.



    The reason why he became to a laughingstock is his too original style for snipe:

    • He apparently has not a sniper rifle, but an assault rifle for sniping. And he is holding it on his shoulder like a rocket launcher.
    • He seems to be taking his sights via scope even though he doesn’t attach a sniper scope on the rifle.
    • Despite of this, a sighter shows on the next frame.
    • His confident remarks: “it’s easy work” (ちょろいもんだぜ; Choroi Mondaze) and “I’ll let your face vanished” (そのきれいな顔を吹っ飛ばしてやる!; Sono Kirei na Kao wo Futtobashite Yaru!)

    Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu

    Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu (まゆたんのカンフー; Matu-tan no Kanfuu) refers to a frame in chapter 42 where Haku Ron is explaining Kung Fu to younger brothers of Kurumi, the protagonist girl of this manga.



    Since this eccentric five motions not seemed at all to Kung Fu, it became to be considered as the creator’s original martial arts called “Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu”.

    Spread

    Around the summer of 2005, overly eccentric storylines in Mayu-tan’s works and her roughish drawing sometimes that causes strange scenes became to be known on the Japanese web via review pages and image collections for her comics by internet users.[3][4] On the Japanese textboard community 2channel, a series of threads for “The Best Assassin in the World” started in the board for catching up trending topics, /gline/ (guideline), on June 28th, 2005.[5] On there, this assassin had been much popular than that Kung Fu, made Shift-JIS art reproducing his scenes and his remarks became to catchphrases among them. An archive page for his fame in 2channel and a fan page for the assassin were also created.[6][7] Besides, parody illustrations for “The Best Assassin in the World” have been occasionally posted to pixiv since it was launched in 2007.[8]



    Meanwhile, “Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu” entered the spotlight as a subject for parody illustrations on pixiv when a template file was created in May 2009.[9] It had earned about 200 illustration responses within its first year.[10] And nowadays, there are over 1,000 parody illustrations for “Mayu-tan’s Kung Fu” on that illustrators community.[11]

    Mayu-tan’s Response

    On September 2nd, 2010, Mayu Shinjo reported on her Twitter that she bought a replica sniper rifle.[12] In that tweet, she comically insisted that she wasn’t wrong and attached a picture of she lifting the rifle on her shoulder.



    Translation:

    I bought a sniper rifle, but… Hey guys! It’s too big & heavy! It can’t work unless I lift it on my shoulder. So, I AM THEJUSTICE!!

    Cute Series (Japanese: ○○かわいいシリーズ, Marumaru Kawaii Series) refers to a style of MAD videos that use the song “Linear Slope X Technologic”. It’s a mashup of an electro pop tune “Liner Slope” (線形勾配) by daniwellP, a famous Vocaloid composer also known as the creator of "Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!", and 2005 hit electro house tune “Technologic”[1] by Daft Punk.

    Origin

    “Linear Slope” was uploaded to both his official website[2] and video sharing services in December 2009. The former is daniwellP’s original instrumental version, but the latter is a mashup version with Daft Punk’s “Technologic”. This mashup version was posted to the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga on December 13th, 2009[3], and it was officially reuploaded to YouTube by the creator in 2011 (shown below, left).

    Meanwhile, the first instance that introduced this song into MADs is "Onjouji Toki is “sickly” kawaii" (lit. Onjouji Toki is Sicky and Cute) made by NND user Kanban (看板)[4]. This video featuring Tok Onjouji, a sickly person in Japanese manga/TV anime Saki, was posted to NND on June 2nd, 2012 (shown below, right).

    Spread

    Other MAD editors quickly began mimicking the style of that Toki Onjouji video partly due to its quite convenient editing style utilizing NND video player’s auto-loop feature. Therefore, it’s considered as a musical resource for novice MAD editors, in a similar vein to on and on or Dangerous Series.

    About 100 videos in this series had been uploaded to NND within its first month, and the amount of those videos has been still increasing.[5] And following videos are called with the phrasal templateX is Y Kawaii” (lit. X is Y and Cute).

  • 12/15/13--05:00: String Play Spider Baby
  • About

    String Play Spider Baby (Japanese: ストリングプレイスパイダーベイビー) refers to a frame of a man striking the yo-yo trick “Spider Baby” in a Japanese comic Moero Spinner (燃えろ! スピナー) written by Takashi Hashiguchi.[1] This frame has been a popular subject for photo collages on the Japanese imageboard community Futaba Channel (2chan) due to its surrealistic lulz.

    Origin

    Moero Spinner is a pilot version for Japanese yo-yo comic Chosoku Spinner (超速スピナー)[2], also known as English title Super Yo-Yo in the US. It serialized 2 episodes on a Japanese monthly boy comic magazine CoroCoro Comic in 1997, and included in both a yo-yo technical guide book “Hyper Yo-Yo Techniques” released in the same year and the 1st volume of Chosoku Spinner released in 1998.

    The frame is taken from a double-page spread where a young man called Kenichi Nakamura or Master Nakamura (中村名人; Nakamura Meijin), the national yo-yo champion in Japan who also appears on Chousoku Spinner, is demonstrating several yo-yo tricks to the protagonist boy. Master Nakamura is striking “Spider Baby” in a small frame on a corner of the pages.



    “String Play Spider Baby!!”

    For Japanese viewers, this English name of this trick and his proud face with overmuch saturated linework on the background look very unfit to that too simple string trick without any dynamic movements because English names usually sound like grandiloquent to Japanese sensibilities. Therefore, this frame creates a weird atmosphere and causes surrealistic lulz to viewers.

    The Technique

    “Spider Baby” is a string trick, previously called as string(s) play in Japan, that hangs a sleeping yoyo in the reversed “Eiffel Tower”.[3] Here is a tutorial video for “Spider Baby” performed by Kenichi Nakamura (中村謙一)[4], a famous Japanese spinner or yo-yo player who led the Hyper Yo-Yo boom in late 1990s of Japan and the model of Master Nakamura in that manga.



    Spread

    This small frame in an old comic finally came to be known at Futaba’s Nijiura boards in October 2006. Nijiura users were soon fascinated by its surrealistic lulz and set the frame to a subject for their favorite photo collage works. Since then, “String Play Spider Baby” has been loved by Nijiura users perennially. A large amount of their photo collage works are collected in Futaba’s private archives, and some of them are reprinted to a Naver Matome page.[5] In addition, this manner has also spread to parody illustrations in the Japanese illustrators community pixiv.[6]

  • About

    Hello Soybeans Song” (Japanese: ハロー大豆の歌, Hello Daizu no Uta) is a strange character song[1] in the TV anime series for a Japanese manga Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens.[2] This song became to a popular subject for parodies among Japanese internet users due to its laughable lyrics and the literally “fierce sex appeal” face by Nagi, the main character in this anime.

    Origin

    The TV anime series for Kannagi aired 13 episodes from October to December in 2008, and the scene where Nagi was singing “Hello Soybean Song” in a karaoke box was appeared on the 10th episode “The Karaoke Warrior, Mike Takako”, which was aired on December 6th.[3] This song is written in the manner of typical Japanese commercial songs, and it’s also drawn as a song for an imaginary food company called “Dokkoi Foods” (どっこい食品).

    via: Gugalyrics[4]

    This Karaoke box scene authentically reproduced the original manga’s episode including this incoherent lyrics. The melody for this song was composed for the animation by the creator, Eri Takenashi, and arranged by Satoru Kōsaki[5], Japanese anime/game composer known for his many works as represented by "Motteke Sailor Fuku!" in Lucky Star and "Renai Circulation" in Bakemonogatari.

    Spread

    This ridiculous song soon got a much attention among viewers due to its impressive facial expression for “fierce sex appeal” and the help of a weird but earnest performance by the voice actor for Nagi, Haruka Tomatsu.[6] Then triggered by a hand-drawn animated video reproducing that scene by Minoriko Aki from Touhou Project, “Hello Soybeans Song” became to a subject for parodies and a vocal resource for MAD videos on NND.[7]

  • Editor’s note: Work in Progress


    About

    Analoguma (Japanese: アナロ熊 or アナログマ, lit. “Analog Bear”)[1] is the icon in an online parody movement against Japanese private-public promoting campaign for the transition from analog to digital broadcasting, and the antithesis of a mascot character of that campaign called Chidejika (地デジカ, lit. Digital Deer).[2]

    In the first half of 2009, those 2 mascots caused a strange sensation on the Japanese web.

    Origin

    Background: Failed Launch of Chidejika

    On April 24th, 2009, a Japanese idol Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, the image character of Japan’s transition to digital television in 2011, forced to step down from the campaign by a scandal that he was arrested for public indecency of going on the naked, drunken rampage in park.[3] Just three days after the incident, National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan (NAB)[4], which was relabeled the Japan Commercial Broadcasting Association in 2012, revealed a new mascot for the campaign named “Chidejika”, which name is a compound word of “Chideji” (地デジ, abbreviated term of Digital Terrestrial Television) and “Shika” (シカ, Deer).


    <!-- pic: Chidejika -->

    The sudden appearance of new mascot soon became to a laughingstock as a quickie character for compensation. Besides, Chidejika got a much attention in a negative way because its looks, only wearing something like a leotard or a school swimsuit, had an enough impact to make many people imagine a barnyard humor due to the influence of that incident. An online news article reported more than 400 parody illustrations or moegijinka versions for Chidejika had been posted to illustrators communities[5][6] within its first week.[7]


    <!-- pic: Chidejika Parodies -->

    The critical failure was NAB showed stereotyped reactions against those internet users innocent mischiefs. They took those parodies seriously, appealed to news media that they had prepared that digital deer since before[8], its clothes wasn’t a swimsuits[9], and showed complaint to sexy illustrations for Chidejika.[7] Moreover, an online gossip news getnews.jp reported that NAB was planning to take a tough line with not only unauthorized reproductions of Chidejika pictures but also parody creations to protect their own copyright as usual.[10]

    Analoguma

    NAB’s small-minded attitude rubbed Japanese internet users the wrong way. Then, people with humorous anger against NAB began to lionize “Analoguma”, a Shift-JIS art character of Kumar (クマー) or Pedobear putting a Yagi-Uda antenna[11] on its head, as the antithesis of Chidejika. This character for analog terrestrial television was born on /news/ board in the Japanese anonymous text board community 2channel on April 28th.[12] And in opposition to Chidejika, Analoguma became to be drawn as a copyright-free mascot in a campaign for postponing the transition or promoting to take this opportunity to stop watching TV.


    <!-- pic: Analoguma -->

    Spread

    Analoguma’s sarcastic concept against NAB and Chidejika was soon received many internet users favourably, and inspired their creative mind. Several Analoguma’s websites parodying Chidejika’s official web were quickly launched[13][14][15], many fan works were uploaded to the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND)[16] and illustrators communities pixiv[17] and Nico Nico Seiga[18]. In addtion, several character goods for this copyright-free mascot were also released.


    <!-- pic: Analoguma Goods -->

    Among their creations, a vocaloid song titled “A Song for Analoguma” (アナロ熊のうた, Analoguma no Uta)[19] composed by koushirou in April 29th, 2009 made a smash hit on the web.[20] The original video[21] and fan-made music videos (shown below) for this song on NND and YouTube had earned over 1.3 million page views in total within its first 2 months.[22] The creator contracted to a major record label and released the song on music distribution sites in June of that year.[23] In addition, this song was included in compilation CD albums for popular vocaloid songs together with "Hakata-san Song" from Salt of Hakata meme[24], and a collaborating song with Ayumu Kato from a Japanese comedy duo Zabunguru, who was well known for his Impossibru face, was released in the summer of 2009.[25]

    Transcript:

    It’s been living secretly for a long time to sooth viewers heart.
    That’s Analoguma, Analoguma.
    He’s still fine.

    Yagi-Uda antenna is receiving (analog) terrestrial broadcasting everyday at full power.
    Analoguma, Analoguma,
    Please stop ghosting.[26]

    That’s the incredible new comer pushing high-definition quality.
    Analoguma, Analoguma,
    Generations have to change.

    He has lived along with Showa period, the bubble economics and the Heisei Recession.
    Goodbye Analoguma, Analoguma
    Until we meet again.

    Meanwhile, NAB’s firm attitude against Chidejika parodies could never affect to internet users activities. Instead, several web domains including the word “chidejika” were registered by individuals, and parody web pages satirizing NAB and Chidejika were opened on there[27] since NAB hadn’t keep domain names for the campaign. Moreover, NAB got revealed a further mistake of GFDL licence violation in the following month that it cited descriptions from Wikipedia’s deer article to Chidejika’s press material without any credits,[28] but NAB got it over by correcting a paper without any formal statement of apology.[29][30] This NAB’s inconsistent attitude for copyright management was mocked at by internet users so much.

    These episodes were also covered by English blog media such as Japanator[31] and Asiajin.[32]

    Analoguma’s Death

    The online sensation of Chidejika and Analoguma has ended in late 2009. Tsuyoshi Kusanagi had returned to the former position in July of that year, and Chidejika has played a role of pure mascot as if nothing had happened in its begining.

    Analoguma came to light for a finale on July 24th, 2011, the day of stopping the analog terrestrial wave. A game shop in Akihabara organized a funeral for Analoguma in the front of the store on that day.[33]
