Punk'd. Taken for a ride. Reamed in the arse. Fooled. Betrayed. Deceived.
Looks at the broken shoulder of the VF0A, "Every get that feeling ya got yamatoed each time something like that happens?"
yamato syndrome. YS. anti-kaizen
A condition or symptoms where a new transformable toy, when carefully taken out of its box, gently transformed / posed / played with, INEVITABLY break due to poorly planned manufacturing - primary reason for failure is often due to dumbass, retarded personnel behind the manufacturing job.
Breakage prone areas on transformable toys (usually crucial moving, stress bearing areas) are OFTEN purposely made with subpar materials, manufactured thoughtlessly, leading to the toy's eventual damage, out of order, kaputting... etc.
Origins of Yamato Syndrome - Since the start of the human culture. Back in the day, the syndrome had MANY names - usually known to many as cuss words. Yamato Syndrome is the modern day, child-safe, politically correct name as it's previous names were too volatile for many civic-minded people.
The modern name Yamato Syndrome is birthed by the negative culture of toy-making company by the same first name; Yamato. Lacking experience but insanely passionate to proof something, they ventured into making subpar (but beautiful) transforming toys for Macross fans. The year was 1999.
Fast forward to 2007, worshipped by manutards the world over, Yamato are still making subpar (but beautiful) transforming toys for Macross fans. And thriving! They have proven to the world that stupidity, laziness, lies, dishonor and zero quality can too bring success. But we know they were all yamatoed.
With such consistency and discipline, Yamato's principle of Yamato Syndrome is today elevated to be the EXACT opposite of Kaizen - Japanese for continuous and incremental improvement, a business philosophy about working practices and efficiency; improvement in productivity or performance. Praticed by Yamofos that failed at Kaizen, any Yamofo can do it. All it took was more stupidity, laziness, lies, dishonor and zero quality.
"The great thing about this toy is no yamato syndrome. That alone makes it a must buy."
"I don't care if YF19 has YS nose!!! It's beautiful and I must have it!!!
Macross fans' hardcore love for the show and their desperate hunger for the show's merchandize became such an institution that they're 100% down with subpar Macross products from Yamato. That's because they're smitten by the beautiful sculpts courtesy of CAD. But more than that, it's only from Yamato that the Macross fans are getting any.
"My damn VF0S biceps cracked today... but it's okay I can still display it in it's beautiful fighter mode. Uh-oh, does that mean I'm getting yamatotionalized? ZOMG!"
Incompetent people in the manufacturing industry. They make things (like a Yamato toy) that look deceptively good in quality, but breaks after gentle transformation. Manutards know everything there is to know in manufacturing like their normal colleagues, but they choose to be special instead.
Manutards can be found everywhere. The largest concentration of manutards however, can only be found working for Yamato toys, Japan.
"When manutards die, even hell will not take them for fear they'll fuck things up."
"Yeah, that's why ya get alot of them in Yamato.
Obviously a Macross fan with multiple copies of the same VF design made subpar by Yamato toys. A Yamatool is also someone who got yamatoed
but is too yamatotionalized
to understand their condition.
Yamatools defend and at times, flame toy collectors on messageboards who point out obvious flaws of all the Yamato toys, oblivious to the fact that they also own the same stuff and that theirs are also broken.
Yamatools' goal is also to someday do enough service to get on Yamato Toys good books and be allowed table scraps of "insider" info that is already long published by magazines like Hobby Japan or Dengeki Hobby.
Yamatool: Hey man, how's it going with your new Yamato 1/60 YF19 with the foldboosters?
Macross Fan: It transforms floppily, it still has no locking chestplate, the nose is still tight as hell and the foldildos doesn't come with batteries included. For USD200 they should at least include the batteries. Other than that, it sweet!
Yamatool: You gotta find yerself a new hobby man...
. Replace "E" with "Ghey" and pronounce it as "gay-ra-gon"
"Hey have you ever watch Eragon? It was kinda nice show."
"That show abt dragon riders and magic, a boy that was destined to be a dragon rider?, kinda like LOTR meets Neverending Story."
"Oh - gheragon!"
Doing a job without thinking or planning. Fucking things up with or without an agenda. Pissing without aiming. Manutards manutarding things up.
"Yamato manutarded every great VF CAD drawings they could get their hands on."
