There is a new photo trend called “Makankosappo” among Japanese schoolgirls these days – teenagers seem to be using dangerous techniques they’ve learned from Dragon Ball on their classmates. Judging by the photos, a single energy attack like that can send all the surrounding classmates flying.
According to ‘Know your meme’, it all started when Japanese Twitter user ‘mkpiiii9‘ posted an image of herself and her classmates staging a dramatic shot titled “Makankosappo!!!!!!” It referred to the special beam cannon of Piccolo from the popular manga series Dragon Ball.
The new photo trend soon spread among Japanese school girls who started posting copycat photos on Twitter. Later, redditor Auyx posted a collection of these pictures on Imgur spreading the ‘Hadokening’ photo fad all over the internet.
