@mona_jpn

> A Midsummer Night’s Lewd/Dirty Dream
Very curious about Inmufags’ behavior. Some of their antics I like to hear about:
- ここすき and its variants
- 33-4
- やったぜ。 (especially some parts involving “Niconico Honsha”)
Plus, two questions. One, other than Inmu videos, what other type of videos Inmufags commented at? Two, what will Inmufags react if one of the OtoMADs they watch is uncensored?

> OtoMADs with music other than common songs
What are the songs that:
1. are commonplace
2. creators love to use
3. creators tend to avoid

> Cyclops Senpai
Can you define this OtoMAD style? (expected clue: song cutting at various parts)

> Bemani
Why Ryu☆’s songs are popular than any other Bemani songs OtoMAD creators use?

You may think about these phrase: “ここすき” (koko suki, I like this point), “ん?” (n?, what?), “ファッ!?” (Fa!?, eh?), “流れ変わったな” (Nagare Kawattana, It has changed mood), etc…

Those phrases are collectively-referred to as “Inmuana” (淫夢語録, Inmu Goroku) or just “Anas” (語録, Goroku) for short.

As I said before, those are nothing more than a meaningless argot. Inmfags just enjoy posting the same comments at the same timing.

> 33-4

“33-4” is a total score in a previous Japanese professional baseball championships. That is an in-joke for one-sided situations in 2channel’s /livejupiter/ board. Since /livejupiter/’s cultural climate is deeply influenced by Inmu phenomena, there are many common jargons in both communes.

> やったぜ。 (Yattaze, did it.)

It comes from the title of a kinky post of middle-aged men’s homo scatology sex in an online forum. This phrase is also included in the Goroku.

> what other type of videos Inmufags commented at?

Anything caught an attention from Inmufags. Attracting the attention of Inmufags is likened to “harmful rumor”. (風評被害, Huuhyoo Higai). A wiki page for Inmu lists up dozens of topics suffered harmful rumor from Inmufags. However, most of them are just cavils.

> OtoMADs with music other than common songs

Mainly, OtoMADs videos are made by remixing a “popular” phrase sampling from TV anime or something and a “popular” musical resource by a “popular” editing style. So every vocal resources for MADs could be called as commonplace. And that’s what MAD editors love to use. In other words, MAD editors only use something popular/trending in each periods for their works.

> Cyclops Senpai

Visual resource: another gay porn video starring Yaju Senpai
Musical resource: Sandstorm by DJ Darude

It would be better to post an article rather than explaining in here. Please give me some time to write up.

> Bemani
Hmm, I don’t know much about it. But the common feature of popular musical resources for OtoMAD are high-speed beats and changing the movements several times in a short time. Ryu’s bemani songs may fit to that demands.

Of course, musical experiences of OtoMAD editors must be poor, since they listen to music via TV animes or video games only :(

mona, I wanna know if these two parodies are notable enough to be covered here: Japanese fanta commercials and the OP for the visual novel “Little Busters!”

And about the McDonald’s fryer jingle, though I’m aware of the remixes, I’ve never really heard it being used from I live.

> Little Busters OP Parodies (リトバスOPパロ)

Oh, I had never thought about this old fad. Yeah, it may deserve to have an entry. Can you give me a little more time? I will be able to submit entries around the end of this month.

> FantaCM Series (ファンタCMシリーズ)

Indeed, several NND users have posted videos of dubbing the voice of this TVCMs onto other animes/games or their own hand-drawn animations. It many be easy to write an article for this TVCMs. But I’m not sure if those are understandable for non-Japanese speakers. even though that funsub video has earned over 2 million views.

I heard that TVCMs had caught an attention on your regions. Are there any English news or blog resources for it? If we could have it, it would be easy to write an article for Fanta CM.

Thanks. That may be the exclusive sound only in Japan…

The Fanta CM? Actually yes, that video I posted was covered on a few sites in the past.

2008: Serious Eats – In Videos: Japanese Fanta Commercials
2012: Japan Central – Japanese Commercials: The Good, The Bad & The Weird (At number 3).
2012: Buzzfeed – The Crazy Japanese Fanta Commercials (Though I don’t think it’s related because it features a different set of commercials).
.
Also with it the CMs being re-posted multiple times on YouTube and on reddit. I think that enough information for an entry, all there is now is when exactly these commercials first aired.

According to Wikipedia and Coca-Cola’s official press releases, that Fanta CM series, officially called as “Fanta School: Teacher Series” (ファンタ学園 先生シリーズ, Fanta Gakuen Sensei Series), had been aired from 2002 to the middle of 2004. And its dubbed version had been aired in South Korea.

Besides, this TVCM series had been awarded the gold prize serially 3 years from 2002 to 2004 at a Japanese CM festival organized by All Japan Radio & Television Commercial Confederation (ACC).

The other important episode is this TVCM series is a parody for the very famous Japanese TV drama series Kinpachi Sensei. All Japanese people definitely recalls Kinpachi from the opening call of the TVCMs because it is the exactly same to that of the TV drama which hadn’t changed for over 30 years since 1970s.

And because Kinpachi is the homeroom teacher of “3-B”, “B” class doesn’t appear on this TVCM series.

I’d like to leave it to you. Those parodies on NND don’t have any remarkable episodes or backgrounds as a internet meme/fad. So all what we should describe about the TVCM series is an online fame of the original TVCM series, and it only exists in the outside of Japan. So I’m not a suitable person to submit it.

> Blueberry

Naturally, that anime is innocent. As I wrote in Sakura Reflection, That’s just because several MAD videos featuring blueberry and Inmu together became to a popular subject for mimicking among other Inmufags. Besides, it also contributes that the 2nd season of this anime series in 2010 was coincided with the rise of Yajuu Senpai’s popularity among them.

It seems towards the end of last month a series of commercials from Hokto Mushrooms got picked up on by NND users a bit but it’s more something to watch because I’m not sure if the meme is barely minor and burning out, or if it’s just revving up (and most of it is a case of MMD motion data being passed around).

Unrelated: are “mono eye”s (モノアイ) notable enough to be a Pixiv sub-meme?

Hello again, Japanese researchers.
I would like to know something: is DEAD ZONE (RED ZONE×キャプテン・ムラサ) worthy of a mention in the RED_ZONE entry?
There seem to be a similar trend of MAD videos reusing this altered version of RED_ZONE.

> Hokuto Mushroom’s Commercial Movie

That TVCM forced to cancel its airing because it got many complaints about its too erotic rendition.
Indeed, there are dozens of MMD videos reproducing that TVCM. But, as usual, all of them is just made by borrowing the same one motion data file. So, its amount never shows notability as
an internet meme, fad or something. I guess it will be quickly gone way.

> Mono Eye

Probably, no. In Japan, “mono-eye” is one of the standard motifs for creatures. Not only “mono-eye” mobile suits in Gundam Universe, “mono-eye” Yōkai characters such as Hitotsume-kozō or Hitotsume-nyūdō are also well-known among Japanese people for many hundreds years before. Therefore, Like Vampire, Franken Stein and Werewolf aren’t so, it’s hard to consider “mono-eye” as an “internet” meme.

Hmm, I’m not so positive to give a mention to this song.

Indeed, these two RED_ZONE + Touhou remixes, DEAD_ZONE and SCARLET_ZONE have dozens of videos and handful of MADs utilizing these songs have earned decent amount of page views.

But as far as I can recollect, both of them didn’t have a much impact in those days… Unless they have had any notable developments derived from the original, we may not need to describe it. I think so.

This week’s clearance sale!

@Brian Gimao

Yeah, it seems Non Non Biyori is the winner of the anime in this season. MAD editors often chose it for their videos’ visual resource. But most of them just features adorable characters’s adorableness similar to that of “Yuru Yuri” or “A certain -” series. As of now, I’m not planning to submit any non-non related entries to KYM.

“Shamoji-P” (しゃもじP) is a now-retired MAD editor. he had deleted his account and videos in early this year. So I can’t search the reason why he is so associated with that hip mads. But I guess he was a sort of evangelist for that hip mad videos. And apologizing to him in video’s descriptions became to a template as same as that of Sakura storm series.

Yeah, sadly KYM doesn’t have the right place to talk about YTPMV fads.

That BEMANI track, “Time to Air”, is one of the YTPMV’s musical resources which were imported from MAD video phenomena in Nico Nico Douga (NND). NND’s search results and nico nico pedia’s article (Japanese) for the song tell us that MAD video editors began to use this song in around the first half of 2008. And it seems this song came to YTPMVs in around 2010.

Indeed, handful of “Time to Air” YTPMVs/MADs have earned decent amount of pageviews, but the whole amount of those videos is quite small. I think this song hasn’t form the stream enough to be called “fad” in both of video parody communities.

He is Masashi Tashio (田代まさし), who had been usually called “Tashiro the God” (田代神) by 2channel users in early 2000s.

There is no literation for her name. But as she’s French, her name “クロエ・ルメール” is probably written in “Chloe Lemaire”. The subject of mockery is the pronunciation of her remark “Kuroe Rumeeru Desuyo” (I’m Chloe Lemaire.) by the voice actor Sakura Tange. That’s because it sounds like mentally retarded people’s speech to some Japanese people who are ordinary monolingual speaker and can’t hear other languages at all.

I guess those silly people will get tired of it soon in the next week.

Kantai Collection (艦隊これくしょん_, collection of fleet), or Kankolle (艦これ_), is a game by DMM and Kadogawa games, in which the player act as a Admiral, and control Kanmusu (艦娘, ship girls), which is ships used for the Japanese Imperial Army in World War 2 humanized as girls. Some of the popular Kanmusus are Shimakaze (島風, commonly known as Zekamashi, ぜかまし_), and Naka (_那珂), known as the “Idol of the fleet”.

As of now, I think KYM doesn’t need to give an entry for Kantai Collection, though probably somebody will make the subculture entry responding to the upcoming TV anime.

Of course, there are some meme-like essences in fan fictions or fan community (eg. “Akagi the Big Eater”, “Crazy Psycho Lesbian Ōi” or “Hirakō Shock” as an event), and both visual and voice materials of “Kan-Musu” have been utilized in Miku Miku Dance Parody videos and MAD videos.

We have to conduct an observation of the trend of the fandom for Kantai Collection.

That “I guess those silly people will get tired of it soon in the next week” is about to take effect anytime now.

This one is like that “I don’t have anything to give you, so I’ll sing you X” meme or the “Zen” meme so you or we might need to conduct a post-impact cross-investigation with both the “I don’t have anything to give you, so I’ll sing you X” meme and this one, just to verify the validity of this meme.

I may give you a fact. This meme we had just seen is (like what I said) like the “Zen” and the “I don’t have anything to give you, so I’ll sing you X” memes, but a little shorter.

What do you consider?

I don’t think KYM should cover minor characters or mascots in small communities unless those pop out to the outside or on official merchandising when they are fanfic characters.

About Girokaku-tan, I think she is still within Vocaloid wiki’s working.

Perhaps, there are no objections since nobody cares of that old song. hahaha.

But if you think that song is a popular musical resource for MAD videos, it would be a mistake. What the most important thing for “God Knows…” is that song was the first subject in niconico’s “I tried…” movement.

What about all those Gag Manga Biyori (ギャグマンガ日和) parody videos?

Hmm, I’ve been trying writing a draft for Gag Manga Biyori parodies. But I haven’t conceived of any good explanation yet… That anime is a bit different from others.

And, it’s very very difficult to explain to non-Japanese people about the backgrounds, the contexts and the reasons why the specific kind of Japanese people are fond of doing that kind of “parody” which is called as “Parody” even though it can’t parody anything…

There are a fair few Garry’s Mod and SFM videos that are characters form other popular media or memes (o.k. usually TF2 characters) over the audio of the original shows (including Adult Swim quarter hour shows which could be considered a good analogue to the type of show Gag Manga Biyori is) so this type of “parody” isn’t a foreign concept here in the West.

Bigger problem is the show has never been officially subbed (and I’m guessing linking to fansubs in an article is a no no) and the few subbed parodies you find on YouTube are often on accounts that do a lot of unofficial NicoNico re-uploading and those type of accounts accounts get knocked out all the time.

The problem, I mean, is the worthlessness of that kind of “parodies”, increasing its amount hugely and rapidly by just mimicking the originator’s work exactly without any original rendition by each followers. And we must know that the people who make that kind of works, mainly hand-drawn animated videos and Miku Miku Dance videos, are female users, and those works are lacking of wit and humor because those are the results of they merely enjoying mimicking like “color by numbers”.

Indeed, those TF2 videos are similar audio dubbing videos. But you know that no followers make the same videos by just swapping characters.

And the reason why Gyg Manga Biyori videos are soon removed from videos sharing services is its copyright holder, Bandai Visual, likes protecting their contents so much.

The original TV anime isn’t so popular. So you’d better not expect much about its spreading.

On the other hand, its opening song in the 1st season had been used in some of parody videos due to its lyrics which is a parody of cliches of ordinary Japanese TV animes’ opening movie.

It seems like an illustration fad has sort of popped up. Should we consider looking over this?

Archived 4chan thread about the fad.

Also, do you think you can explain what these “suggestive” Mega Man remixes are exactly, mona?

> illustration fad

It’s actually going viral among Japanese twitter users and amateur illustrators. Marty made an entry for this and now I’m working on. : Japanese Couple’s Snow Storm Interview

That Crunchyroll’s report may help you guys understand what happened on the Japanese twitter these days. But I can’t read the article because they block access to news articles from Japan :-(

> Megaman Remix

Ahh, it’s definitely incomprehensible for non-Japanese speakers. The feature of that kind of Mega Man’s Zero remixes is making Zero utter lewd and silly phrases by slicing his actual remarks on the show to each syllables and reconstructing other phrases. Most of those videos are made by the morbid passion of only one MAD video editor called 634 (pron. Musashi). More than 400 videos in this series are made by him. He is crazy…

ゼERO

As shown by Vocaloid technology, Japanese language doesn’t have much syllables compared to that of English and Indian-European Languages. So, it’s easy to reconstruct someone’s speech phrases by manually making his/her syllables library. This technique is also labeled as “Human-powered Vocaloid” (人力ボーカロイド).
