    RIP, thanks for making our childhoods so special that in adulthood we flew. Flew like lone birds in the dim light of the internet; finding a nest of community & commonality.
    May TakaraTomy receive his blessings to keep succeeding.

    Dakko-chan is part of the Takara company's legacy. While the original design of the character is not regarded as appropriate in today's market, there's nothing wrong with the original Dakko-chan being in the picture. Heck, even wikipedia still has the picture of this character as reference. Takara - Wikipedia
