Yoko of Gurren Lagann Feels Great About her Body and Badass by Robert Farago | Aug 29, 2012 | 66 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Aside from a hundred or so YouTube page views, you heard it here first. comments Ralph says: August 29, 2012 at 12:07 She looks like a pink Andorean midget in a new episode of Star Trek. Reply Aharon says: August 29, 2012 at 12:21 Hey Yoko, if you’re gonna show naked flesh lose some weight and tone-up. Thirty years ago overweight chics would have hidden their fat. Now, they think it is sexy to show it. Reply matt says: August 29, 2012 at 14:14 See my post below, she isnt a fattie.

Reply karlhungus says: August 29, 2012 at 12:22 +1 to dat ass Reply IdahoPete says: August 29, 2012 at 12:26 She is just … like … such an airhead … like …. You know? Is she trying out for “America’s most idiotic videos”? Reply Chas says: August 29, 2012 at 12:54 +1 Misuse and constant repetition of the word “like” makes me want to choke someone. Reply Thomas Everett Haynes says: August 29, 2012 at 20:15 People are usually uncomfortable speaking on camera, this causes the airhead speech pattern. Reply GS650G says: August 29, 2012 at 12:30 Nice rack and that’s about all. Reply Skyler says: August 29, 2012 at 12:51 There’s no more embarrassment for being fat anymore. Such a shame. Reply Thomas Everett Haynes says: August 29, 2012 at 20:17 How is she fat? Seriously, where do you see this fat? Reply JWest says: August 29, 2012 at 12:57 Some picky readers. Yoko might be carrying over 8% body fat. So what? She’s cute and I’m glad to see her. Thanks. Reply Matt in FL says: August 29, 2012 at 12:57 Aharon, she’s built for comfort, not speed. I’ve dated rail thin girls, I’ve dated corn-fed girls. There’s no denying the attractiveness of a toned, thin girl in a slinky dress. There’s also no denying that it was more comfortable to curl up on the couch with the “healthy” girls. I’m equal opportunity. The “likes” and “umms” were getting to me by the end. The rifle really does look pretty awesome. Reply Accur81 says: August 29, 2012 at 13:06 +1 She’s got a nice body, and I bet she’s in better shape than 90 % of the OFWG’s here. Reply Bruce says: August 29, 2012 at 13:16 Was thinking that myself. Reply Mike S says: August 29, 2012 at 13:36 +another Reply Not Too Eloquent says: August 29, 2012 at 14:02 I guess I’m in the 10%… Reply bontai Joe says: August 29, 2012 at 15:21 She is definitely in better shape than I am, and by my standards, she looks VERY fine. I had the handicap (benefit?) of watching the video with out sound. I am assuming that she represents a game character? And the rifle she is holding is a prop gun for the game? Reply Matt in FL says: August 29, 2012 at 13:22 Oh, and replying to myself, it just occurred to me that she’s also clearly got more self-confidence than several girls I’ve dated who were more subjectively attractive. Reply jwm says: August 29, 2012 at 14:34 don’t forget the bone bruises you get from skinny chicks. i like women that look like women, not 12 yo boys with a rack. and why are we discussing this on ttag, doesn’t seem to have much to do with guns. Reply Matt in FL says: August 29, 2012 at 14:35 Hey, I commented on the gun. Not Too Eloquent says: August 29, 2012 at 15:52 I’m enjoying my bone bruises at the moment. RKflorida says: August 29, 2012 at 13:07 She looks like a hooker. Also, baby blubber is not attractive on a grown person. Reply John E> says: August 29, 2012 at 13:08 lighten up people, she is a kid with a hobby, at least she isn’t smokin crack in an alley. Reply Moonshine7102 says: August 29, 2012 at 13:15 Interesting. Robert, do you often troll youtube for pudgy pubescent consplayers? Reply Robert Farago says: August 29, 2012 at 13:27 Not often, no. Reply Moonshine7102 says: August 29, 2012 at 13:32 Just checking. 😉 Reply إبليس says: August 29, 2012 at 13:19 She’s not bad. Ditch the anime fetish and we’ll talk. Or not. I’ve got a sexy Robotech outfit at home 😉 Reply jimmyzline says: August 29, 2012 at 13:54 Ok. So I found myself somewhat bewildered and had to google “cosplay”. Hint number one that I should get out more… Reply Moonshine7102 says: August 29, 2012 at 13:59 Or that you don’t use Google Images enough. Steer clear of the phrases “rule 34”, “rule 63”, “furry” and “tentacle”. 😉 Reply din says: August 29, 2012 at 16:55 quiet, you. the best way for people to learn is the hard way. Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 21:04 all roads lead to /b/… matt says: August 29, 2012 at 14:04 She isnt fat, it is just shitty lighting. Here is another pic of her http://www.acparadise.com/acp/display.php?p=179137 http://www.acparadise.com/acp/display.php?c=49663 Reply matt says: August 29, 2012 at 14:10 You’re all a bunch of haters. I wonder how many of your wives are twice as old as her, and weigh as much as you OFWGs do? I’d tap Syren’s ass. Reply liquidflorian says: August 29, 2012 at 17:44 You can see Ab muscle definition in that second pic. Oh, most of the guys here would probably call that too muscular. Reply Dirk Diggler says: August 29, 2012 at 18:02 two words: doggie style Reply Matt says: August 29, 2012 at 14:10 Underboob ftw! Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 14:25 I’d hit it like China wants to hit Japan. Still don’t understand anime though. Reply Heath R says: August 29, 2012 at 18:38 its just a medium. the japanese dont have the cartoon=for kids mindset. its no different than heavy use of CGI in a film. a lot of the stuff in recent years is a little bit toned down/aimed at young children but there are other good ones out there. one of the more serious hard hitting movies is Jin-Roh: the wolf brigade( http://www.imfdb.org/w/Jin-Roh:_The_Wolf_Brigade ). if you can find it i recommend at least seeing it. after that i think you will understand anime a little bit better. Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 21:11 Well yeah, I’ve seen Akira but I don’t get the point of being that into it. Guess I’d just rather play with the real thing. 😎 I watch a lot of Adult Swim, love the Venture Brothers, Regular Show, Frisky Dingo, Metalocalypse, and the Squidbillies. Used to like ATHF too. Reply Thomas Everett Haynes says: August 29, 2012 at 20:30 Heath is correct. It is just a medium. Their (Japanese) entertainment focuses on kids usually because they hate their adult lives (the fun stops at 20 for them), so their shows with kids saving the world are actually aimed at adults. Otherwise it is usually a flashy and colorful art style that is CHEAP to make stuff in. Because of this the amount of stuff made in it is wide and varied. There are shows that handle deep moral problems of advancing technology (Ghost in the shell), Overly intricate ads and strategy guides for video games (Pokemon), and even a show that stars a bunch of guns that go to high school together that secretly teach the audience about firearms (Upotte!!). Reply CarlosT says: August 30, 2012 at 03:36 It’s also a medium for incredibly moving, serious, and tragic work, such as Grave of the Fireflies, a story of two orphans in post World War II Japan. It really is a beautiful film, and one that will destroy any naive notions about what the term “anime” means. Reply Not Too Eloquent says: August 30, 2012 at 08:41 Yeah, I’ll get right on that one… Reply Moonshine7102 says: August 30, 2012 at 09:59 I’m a grown man, and that movie brought me to tears. Anyone wishing to expose their children to the horrors of war (without actually doing so) should definitely rent it. Reply Gyufygy says: August 29, 2012 at 14:30 I don’t think the character carries around a long-range marksman trained in stealth and observation, but other than that, I knew there was more than one reason I miss going to cons. 😀 …Now I want to start a Firearms panel at Dragon*Con. Too bad I haven’t gone in years. >_< Might need to change that next year. Reply MotoJB says: August 29, 2012 at 16:00 I feel pretty good about her body…not great. 😉 Reply Matt says: August 29, 2012 at 16:21 I’d buy that for a dollar! Reply Jwhite says: August 29, 2012 at 17:38 She’s hot +1 Reply liquidflorian says: August 29, 2012 at 17:40 I love cosplay chicks. 😀 Reply miforest says: August 29, 2012 at 18:21 I have a daughter and nieces who are all very athletic. as an owg, most guys who are obsessed with women’s weight are young, virgins, and insecure. at LEAST 2 of those. The girl is probably exactly where her weight should be for height, according to medical charts. I am glad she has found an interest she can enjoy and be passionate about. clearly both a lot of thought and effort went into that get-up. as for intelligence, cameras can make people nervous who are not in front of them a lot. even smart teenagers are not always articulate. Reply MotoJB says: August 29, 2012 at 18:36 You’re an OFWG, huh?? Kidding…I too have TWO daughters. They are both thin/athletic. One has an eating disorder we’re battling. It’s crazy. The way girls are supposed to be/look in today’s society is too much. My girls are blessed that they are beautiful – and for one, that still isn’t enough. I look around me and am perplexed to see thin, athletic, gorgeous girls who think they are ugly and fat…right next to big, chunky, lazy girls that think they’re all that! WTH? Reply miforest says: August 29, 2012 at 19:02 there is a lot of pop culture pressure for the girls to become anorexic. I am only owg, not that fat yet. you are supporting my point. my comments are directed at the keyboard studs who have probably not been on their first date yet. I never hear that kind of garbage from adult men. glad to hear your daughters are doing well. Reply Phydeaux says: August 29, 2012 at 18:35 I’m going to take my 15yo son and his girlfriend to Kumoricon this weekend. I was already going to bring my camera – for the gun replicas of course. Reply Thomas Everett Haynes says: August 29, 2012 at 20:42 Cosplay is the best way to meet smart girls who are beautiful. They are also usually easier to get into the shooting hobbies… you know… to help understand their character… Reply miforest says: August 30, 2012 at 09:54 there’s a plan! Reply Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says: August 29, 2012 at 20:59 Go beyond the impossible! Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 21:19 This is the TTAG equivalent of a “2/10 would not bang” thread…LOL Reply Matt in FL says: August 29, 2012 at 22:09 Yeah, it kinda is. But on the 2/10 subject, I use a system called “Would I?” It works like this: “If she was in my house, right now, would I?” It reduces the problem to a binary answer: either yes, or no. 1, or 0. See, the problem with a subjective system on a 10-scale is that it only applies to situations where you have two equally possible options, side-by-side at the same time. Two girls in a bar, one an 8 & one a 6, and you have your pick. In that situation, comparative ratings might matter. But most guys, in reality, won’t be in that situation. Most guys don’t have “pick of the litter.” Thus, the “Would I?” system. Under that system, both the 8 and the 6 would be “1’s,” and you’re a winner either way. The question then, of course, is “Would she?” Based on some of the attitudes I’ve seen here, I’m not so sure. Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 22:18 In the birthplace of “anon” they would have threads where people would post pictures of beautiful women and people would use MS paint to mark them up with all the reasons the girl was “2/10 would not bang.” Some of the stuff was hilarious like a spot on the carpet, bad choice in decorating, etc. Good stuff. Now it’s all bronies and spiderman. Reply Thomas Everett Haynes says: August 29, 2012 at 22:21 Except this chick is totally hot… she needs gun edumacation though.. Reply Dan says: August 30, 2012 at 07:33 99.9% of TTAG readers would bang a watermelon if it had a vagina. Reply miforest says: August 30, 2012 at 09:54 we would not . they’re cold. Reply Phydeaux says: August 31, 2012 at 19:01 I always leave my watermelons in the sun. That way they’re nice and warm. Reply Syren says: September 6, 2012 at 00:57 Haha, despite some of the comments, thanks for posting this! I’ll admit I felt a bit awkward talking into a camera, thus I was constantly filling the silences with “um” and “like”, but hey, there’s a mute button for a reason! As for the people commenting on my weight, I actually lift weights a lot, and my body is definitely still a work in progress. Thanks for the motivation to stay in shape though 🙂 Reply MotoJB says: September 6, 2012 at 01:14 Let me correct myself…as I let myself get swayed by the initial comments here…I feel great about your body and so should you. Rock it girl. If I weren’t married to a hot lady already, we could engage in some serious gun play together. 😉 Reply Syren says: September 6, 2012 at 11:11 Thanks for the reply! I didn’t always feel great about my body, which led me to develop an eating disorder, but I don’t let what other people say affect me. I only want to get fit for myself, not for other people. And now I’m at a healthier weight. Still gotta drop some body fat, but at least I’m not a landwhale, right? I wish I had someone to teach me more about guns honestly! My father passed away before he could really go in-depth with me but I’ve gone shooting before with him. Either way, I still enjoy firearms.
