A well-meaning mum was left red-faced when the ‘Anime’ hoodie she bought her daughter turned out to be a lot ruder.
When Janelle Cook came home with a surprise gift for her daughter – a huge fan of the Japanese art form – she didn’t expect the reaction she received.
Holding up the black and white hoodie covered in faces, the 51-year-old can’t understand why her daughter is laughing so much.
Little did Janelle know that the designs were actually Ahegao – a term used in erotic manga for exaggerated facial expressions, typically showing the person with crossed eyes or tongues sticking out.
Janelle said: “When I realised, I was shocked.
“Then when my daughter started laughing, I joined in as it is hilarious.”
