Posted October 01, 2018 05:29:17 Anime fans love anime posters and fan art.
And now the fandom has a new name: Anime Face.
This meme is the Japanese term for the face that anime posters often use to draw attention to anime and manga in their videos.
“It’s the first anime face I’ve ever seen,” one fan told The Guardian.
“I didn’t know that.
This was a shock.”
So how does it work?
The meme started when a group of fans in Japan began posting anime posters to a group chat.
They then created an online group called Anime Face, and a bunch of fans started adding images of themselves to their posters.
“People started adding the image of their face,” said the user “Anime Girl.”
“And then the word ‘face’ started appearing in the comments,” said another user.
The memes spread to other sites and Twitter accounts and soon became part of the culture.
Some users even went so far as to upload their own anime posters.
In fact, it wasn’t long before people began posting the faces of popular anime characters, such as Mai from Cowboy Bebop and Tetsuya Nomura from Naruto.
But while fans have started using the faces as their own, there is a catch.
While it may look like a cute meme, it’s not as easy as you might think.
The Japanese language doesn’t have a lot of words for “face,” and some of the most popular ones are hard to pronounce.
“They’re a bit hard to say,” said Yui Otsuki, an animator and anime fan in Tokyo.
“When I say anime, I mean ‘aural images,’ and they are very hard to make out,” she told The Huffington Post in an email.
“And they’re not very attractive.
So you end up with this face that’s really difficult to read.”
Anime Face has been around for a while, but its popularity has grown quickly.
Its popularity has been so intense that it’s been dubbed the “animation meme.”
So why is the name so popular in Japan?
“It started as a joke, but now the name is really popular,” said one fan.
“But I guess the reason is that we live in Japan and we use the word for ‘face,’ so it’s become very popular,” she said.
The reason for the popularity has to do with the way that Japanese people use language.
In Japan, we don’t talk about a lot, so the word “face” isn’t a big part of how people use it.
The “animated” part of “face”—which is really the part that sounds like the Japanese word for “animator”—is a little more common, and people say it in more of a friendly way.
“The reason why the name came about is because I wanted to create something new and not just make an old anime face,” Otsuli said.
And so she started the first Anime Face fan group on Twitter, @animationgirl.
“Then I added a few other people to help out and then we started to attract fans,” she added.
And she’s already got a few thousand followers on Twitter.
“We’re just waiting for the day when the word becomes popular enough that people start making their own images,” she explained.
The name has also helped draw attention from anime and Japanese manga artists.
Anime Girl has been featured in several popular Japanese magazines, including Weekly Shonen Jump, and she’s even been featured on an anime poster.
So why has the name caught on?
“I think it’s because anime has been really popular and it’s very difficult to find an image,” said Otsukaso.
“So if you see an anime face and think, ‘Oh my god, it looks like this,’ then you’re very likely to want to create your own,” she continued.
“For some reason, the people who want to use it seem to get it more than the people that don’t.”
“I don’t know how it came about,” she admitted, “but it seems to be something that has become popular with fans.”
