Japanese anime secrets—REVEALED!

Hold on to your raccoon-furred, tail-swingin' caps, People, the Cuteness meter just blew up!

Courtesy of Ms. Stephanie R., we present "Ezo Momonga", the flying Japanese squirrel. Apparently every single anime artist in Japan has seen this site, since this little guy is obviously the epitome of all Japanese varmint-esque characters. I mean, look at him!!! And listen to what he's saying!

[rustling] "I shall swoop into your lives—and CHANGE THEM FOREVER!" [say in Japanese accent]

P7_1

"Watch as I effortlessly GLIDE INTO YOUR MIND, ERASING ALL THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY CONSIDERED CUTE!"

[jumps off branch] "Ehnn!"

P17

"I shall now BURROW MYSELF INTO YOUR BRAIN and you shall COME VISIT ME DAILY ON THIS SITE!" [cracks a small snack on the tree trunk]

"Oh, yeah."

P28

Hehehe that is a very very cute squirrel right there. It really reminds me of Momochan from the hit Adult Swim anime series Samurai Champloo. Still don't know who I'm talkin' about? Take a look at these pictures from a site I found: http://www.animegalleries.net/album/5077

eeeep! if you go to the site linked in the blurb, scroll to the bottom and look to the left for their cartoon version of the little guy, complete with japanese flag! so cute!

and the champloo gallery linked above has an excellent entry for the new "critters n bosoms" section. or are we not allowed to talk about that anymore? ;)

I just love the write-ups that accompany these cute pics, especially the ones that include sound-effects, e.g.:
[jumps off branch] "Ehnnn!"

LOL!!! (oD

That's kawaii enough to be in violation of the Geneva Conventions. That's weapons-grade cuteness!

The big-eyed anime look is actually based on Betty Boop, believe it or not. I think you owe her an apology.

From the site:

"...he wants to say something.
But he has no way to express himself.

If they could talk, we would have another wonderful world."

Indeed! Kawaaaaiiiii!!!

Hey! A colleague of mine brought the book that all those pictures come from into work a few months back. Funny to see it posted here, but fitting. I had forgtten about it. Ohmigosh, and the book is about 75 pictures thick of the little momonga. They just swoop from tree to tree and find little holes to burrow themselves into. I want one!
