The denizens of 2ch’s VIP board have challenged themselves to turn a series of moe and not so moe images into the ASCII art (usually simply called “AA” in Japanese) so beloved of 2ch.

A glimpse into the making of this AA:

Just why 2ch is so fond of AA is an interesting question – possibly the lack of even basic image handling on 2ch promotes its use over the obnoxious Photoshop antics favoured internationally.

That 2ch is apparently eternally stuck with technology and design which would have been antiquated even two decades ago is probably a factor too – it is little wonder so many Japanese prefer to read 2ch in edited form on more modern sites.
