2ch is flabbergasted:

“No, not this!”

“The horror…”

“They are making fun of Japan…”

“They are quite nicely drawn.”

“… Not bad.”

“I laughed at the video.”

“Come on you Yanks, you need some makeup to disguise the nose as well.”

“The noses of foreigners don’t match anime, they are too damn huge!”

“This is actually more shoujo manga makeup than anime makeup?”

“This is nothing but gross and creepy.”

“I want to see that girl with the red bow without the makeup, I’m sure she’s really pretty!”

“We should make Shoko-tan do this.”

“I’d run if I saw someone like this in the street.”

“Some of them are actually really good.”

“Whenever Japanese stuff gets popular in the US, it only looks as though they are making fun of Japan.”

“Guys, your dreams have come true, haven’t they?”

“2D only!”
