Holy Cow! If that was supposed to be Akarin talking, it's way out of character. Even if it was Kyoko, it'd be out of line. Someone just ended their career in internet marketing. So remember boys and girls, when submitting comments, pause to think of how it will sound before hitting "submit"...

What. (-.-) This is the actual writer of the tweets talking, isn't it? Forget your boss, let's not broadcast how lazy you are to the entire world, okay?

You know, this makes me wonder how Japanese fans would react to the American Sonic twitter. Because that thing can be the Trolliest Thing Alive.

I'm not thinking bad thoughts, so I didn't know you guys were. Well who cares about any of you? To exaggerate, I wouldn't think anything if you died. That has nothing to do with reality, but the point is, I feel nothing towards you.


lol wow. this is what happens when you let Hachiman run a twitter account

Oh, yes...They've gone a bit too far with the jokes. Particularly this one:

Who knows, perhaps someone that posted this message might receive a vacation credit as a result. Wink

Off to a shaky start indeed. Hopefully this doesn't hurt the image since I would like to see more Yuruyuri Anime in the future. Smile

okay so apparently my allcaps was considered Not Constructive (probably a good sign really, even if i wasn't being totally serious) so let me say it again. i really don't see why this matters that much. twitter is a silly site. it's not exactly professionalism. this is very much a japanese cultural thing that is causing this to be considered a big deal. an otaku cultural thing too - it's very likely the fact that the show is moe innocence-fetish content that led to people complaining, since the twitter goes against that attitude by being parodical

i'm honestly surprised to see everybody else shunning it too - i thought westerners on the internet loved to insult others for being offended over things. i guess anime is a sacred topic as usual

Although I wasn't amused by any of these jokes, I didn't really find them offensive, either. They're definitely out-of-character (assuming the tweeter was attempting to take on the persona of Akari), but none of them gave me pause in the slightest.

Reading these messages, I got the impression they outsourced things to Microsoft.

Welp. This is not the way I want to see a cute yuri comedy represented. Screw you, whoever ran that twitter.
