The "Is She Virtual or Real?" Debate




Kotaku has brought light to a very strange debate flooding Japanese media. Japan's most popular girl pop group (with 48+ members) AKB48 has introduced Aimi Eguchi to the world... and she does NOT seem real. What do you think? Watch the video above, look closely at these images and join in on the discussion. Read more about it here.

If she is actually rel, they've done some BAD photoshop on her face, because she seems like 'scrapped' I guess, like a collage made of part of a face. Besides, her face doesn't seem real, in a first impression the human eye can see some things, some facts about a face that make it a face indeed.

I don't know what to think yet, but it's something to give some attention to.

Everyday, when I wake up in the morning, I check to see what you've got new on your blog. You're doing a great job! I wanted to know what blogs you get up and check regularly for cute stuff :) The more you have, the merrier!

Thanks, clarisse

I just watched this on the news here in Japan like literally 30 minutes ago. They said she is CGed out of popular members face parts. Like so-n-so's eyes, so-n-sos lips etc.

She looks real to me, but you can never be sure with Japan.

Ahahahaha, funny!

I'm a huge AKB-fan, so it seems a little bit strange for me to see a member pop out of nowhere and getting pushed that much.
Wanted to see her perform since I heard she's a research now but that makes it even more interessting ^^

I think she is real! Japan love photoshop, and maybe too much in this case! :P

Love your blog and read it everyday!

Thanks Clarisse and Renate, I'm happy to hear it!!! It keeps me going :)

Clarisse - yikes as far as sources, what i would do is click the blog category on my sidebar and you'll see A LOT of blogs I use :) Hope that helps

Sara mari - whoa... so are they saying that with full certainty?

SARA MARI said...

I can't be sure since I don't speak that much Japanese, it seemed like they were saying it was true and were showing a newspaper article on it. I will try to find that newspaper and have my friend translate it!

Wow this is very interesting indeed. I think she looks real, but like another commenter said, you can't be too sure when it comes to Japan! lol

Wow, fascinating! She looks real to me, but I could see how she could have been frankened up from parts of the other girls. Now I really want to know, lol.

I'm living in Japan. This morning on the news they admitted she was a fake and showed the AKB members' features she's a composite of =).

BTW, I love your blog =).
