A Japanese moe character originating from the Breaking News (VIP) Board on 2channel, Hinomoto Oniko in the anthropomorphism of the phrase “日本鬼子”, a Chinese ethnic slur used against the Japanese. It is read as “riben guizi” in Chinese which literally means “Japanese Devil”, but when read in Kun’yomi, it is “Hinomoto Oniko” which resembles a female name. She was created in 2010 and has since become an internet meme infamous among forums and imageboards in Japan.
Well, that’s one way of changing something negative into a positive. If you can’t beat ‘em, moe-fy them! Thanks to 2chmod for sending this in!
