I don't blame them. I don't really like the change either.

Having saw some people's images being displaced from the square-to-circle conversion, I understand the frustration Takara Tomy were going through. I wasn't satisfied with the change myself.

Reading those tweets out loud was hilarious. I hope he doesn't actually get punished or anything. I couldn't tell from the article whether or not people were actually taking it seriously. Laughing

This was such a funny bit to read. I wasn't so happy with the dramatic change either. Some people made use out of the drastic change. I'm find with it. What really bothers me is how huge and bold the font has gotten.

As I understand the situation, one strategy taken by certain online brands has been to increase the padding of their profile image, thus shrinking it to within the circle's radius and retaining its all-important quaderaleteral properties.

The round one looks like Zen-Oh's face, except with the wrong colors.

Wasn't a fan of the change either. The outrage is justified.
