I really enjoy translating comments on 2ch and comparing them to responses about the same news. You guys really took an interest in the “Real Yoko” figure, so when I saw the 2ch thread, how could I resist?

The vast majority of the comments shared the exact same complaints that many of you had-- that she looks too old or just sort of odd --although it seems like there were fewer people who liked her, at least among the comments I translated and selected from (about the first 20).

  • “She's not babyfaced.”
  • “Who is this?”
  • “This guy didn't factor in Yoko's age LOL”
  • “She looks like a tranny LOL. There are too many figures with bad faces these days.”
  • “Wasn't this Yoko [i.e. the Yoko from this time period in the series] supposed to be 14 or 16? She's too old...”
  • “Nice, but it doesn't look right.”
  • “As a depiction it's uninteresting, but if it were an original character it'd be good.”
  • “Reality and that hair and those clothes just don't mix well.”
  • “Huh? This Yoko is good, am I in the minority here? Isn't she beautiful?”
  • “They should have used 21-year-old Yoko's outfit.”

I still like this figure. The if you don't like it there are plenty of 'anime' faced Yoko figs out there

Boobs not teh same and she looks older, the loli face suits her better...

her hips are whack and un-anime proportionate

those eyes + those goggles : crummy design

Cosplayers have more quality that

Don't know what Nerx is talking about, but I think it looks pretty cool and well proportioned. But I do agree with the comment about needing to use a different outfit... she seems too old for her costume.
