So I thought this would be interesting to share on tumblr. I finally found this scan of a Seventeen Magazine article where they interviewed this japanese girl about what’s cool in japan. This was back in 2004 and it’s the first thing I read that mentions the creepy/cute phenomenon in japan. Originally I thought teddybear  on her phone was gloomy bear, but it says it’s from an anime. (I wonder which one?) I think Kimokawaii( gross and cute) was a trend back then and she seems to like visual kei bands and style.
