Rikka's Finger Spin


Rikka's Finger Spin refers to a series of hand-drawn animated GIFs/videos which are tributes to a clip of Rikka Takanashi, a main character in a Japanese light novel/anime Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, spinning her fingers. It was a popular subject for fan creations on the Japanese video-sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) and illustrators community Pixiv in 2012-2013.


Rikka's finger Spin appears in the opening movie of the 1st season of the TV anime series Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions that aired from October to December 2012. This opening movie itself also became a popular subject for the op parodies on NND. The finger spin is inserted at the beginning of the climax part of the song. However, its length is just 2 seconds.


Despite the short footage, Rikka's finger spin caught the attention among viewers. On YouTube, this part was used in a video titled “WOOP WOOP”, made and uploaded on October 4th, 2012 by user jgsfgs (shown below, left). It received watched over 200,000 views during the 3 months of the anime's airing period. The finger spin reached more recognition when NND user "01" made a Fukkireta video and uploaded it on October 12th, 2012 (shown below, right). The video was also the trigger for Fukkireta videos featuring this dance and character.

More than 100 parody/tribute videos for Rikka's Finger Spin were been posted to NND during the airing period.[1] Additionally, dozens of the finger spin illustrations/animated-GIFs are also found on Nico Nico Seiga[2] and pixiv[3] as well as deviantART.[4] On these Japanese online communities, Rikka's finger Spin fan creations are usually tagged by a Shift-JIS art "(σ回ω・)σ←↖↑↗→↘↓↙←↖↑↗".
