I can't tell if Funassyi is more or less terrifying than Mr. Blobby...

Why do you find Funassyi terrifying? Just curious.

Just look at it, those deep black hollow eyes staring at you, then imagine a human sized mascot coming up to you shouting and raving. For me, it's definitely up there with Mr. blobby and other "creatures" which some madman came up with as a character

When I was visiting Japan in 2014-15 that thing was everywhere and I hated it. Glad to see it was only a fad.

I remember Funassyi, he actually got news coverage in the US, not to mention 2 games on the 3DS.

I always thought he/she looked like a child's scribble drawing. Not a bad one, but seeing it come alive, dance and sing is kind of freaky.

Funassyi sounds like Cartman.

They should open for BabyMetal.
