Everybody remembers Yugioh, right? To defeat the evil Pegasus, Yugi and his friends drew the japanese character for "friendship" on their hands.
Watch it again though, and you'll notice that its been replaced by a Smiley Face
Could this be the Mandela effect in action? It seems like these changes are increasing in frequency
>To defeat the evil Pegasus
"In the anime, she drew it before Yugi faced Seto Kaiba"
No wonder you've misremembered it being a Kanji. Or was that also part of the Mandela effect?
God, /x/ seems to get worse every day, I don't know why I still lurk this board.
It changed to a smiley face in the manga too. This is the mandella effect in full force
One of the really bad subs said that it was the "character for happiness."
It was always a smiley face.
