No doubt you've seen the picture below or something similar to it in the past couple weeks:
At first glance, you may assume this pic has been photoshopped or something, but further inspection actually reveals that the pic is just the result of some well-timed jumping and an intimidating pose. This tweet kicked off the current Makankosappo and Hadouken craze here in Japan and around the world.
Adding fuel to the fad is the new HadoukenCamera, available now for iOS only. The idea is simple: you take your own Hadouken or Makankosappo picture, then the app lets you add cool Dragon Ball or Street Fighter-esque effects to spice up your masterpiece.
To test out the app, we held a World Champion Battle to the Death here at TABROID!
First Round: Kanamoto vs. Watanabe
HadoukenCamera isn't limited to hadouken-ing; it's got plenty of other effects for all your fighting needs. Watanabe tries to block Kanamoto's power elbow, but the power is just too great! Kanamoto wins! Because we used his iPod Touch!
Before the final round...
Here comes Ito bursting onto the scene, full of unwarranted vim and vigor! Judging by his pose, he's maybe more of a lover than a fighter...
Final Round: Kanamoto vs. Ito
Ito hits Kanamoto with a kamehameha right out of the gate! Ito forgets his place in the pecking order and goes for the kill! How will this affect his job stability? Will he be fired?
Actually, Kanamoto let Ito do the kamehameha because of his yellow jacket. What a nice guy.
Anyway, as you can see, there's some good old-fashioned fun to be had with HadoukenCamera. So gather some friends together, come up with some crazy fight ideas, and make some memories. You can also have fun using it with classmates or teammates to make some super epic battles. How many people can you take out with a single Makankosappo?
