Yukkuri Shiteitte ne! (ゆっくりしていってね!), which translates to "Do It Slowly!" or as it is more commonly known "Take It Easy!," are giant heads with ridiculous facial expressions resembling Touhou Project characters. The catchphrase and original artwork are frequently mentioned in fan art, redraws and other crossover memes online.


On October 13th, 2007, a 2channel anonymous user attempted to do Shift_JIS art portraying the Touhou protagonists Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame (shown below).[1] However, the attempt didn't turn out successfully, resulting in the infamous giant heads. While it was perceived as a failure by some, others embraced the attempt with humor. The faces eventually became a running in-joke of the community, resulting in the Shift_JIS art being redrawn as well.

Yukkuri's popularity soon spread to 4chan's /jp/ board, appealing to a wider anime audience. They appear in fan art, doujins and plushies (shown below, left). Many artists describe detailed Yukkuri behavior, anatomical structure and ecosystem,[2][3] although since they are purely a fan creation, any rules concerning the creation of a Yukkuri are subject to popular opinion. Even though Yukkuris started with a large Touhou base, other characters such as Hatsune Miku have also been parodied as a Yukkuri (shown below, right). A booru-style site exclusively for Yukkuris was created by fans as well.[4]

Some random japanese is actually trying to trademark Yukkuri videos right now :


Pretty much everyone in japan is fucking pissed right now,
ZUN aknowledged the situation and is actually discussing with a lawyer about it.
This whole affair also appeared on TV in japan :


the trademark in question is about the term "ゆっくり茶番劇" and the guy asks for 100 000 yens per year for the use of this trademark.
If you're typing "ゆっくり茶番劇" on youtube, you'll find plenty of videos talking on the subject (all videos are in japanese though).
