I'm afraid that it can become a controversial. (As you know, personification has pros and cons.)
but also I'm curious about your thinks. haha!
I'm positive about it if they don't harm original's characteristic.
Well, what do you think? :)

I do not understand what this is yet so I have no idea what to say.  :confused:
I'll google it in both languages and read about it and try to make an opinion.

Edit: well is this is anywhere near accurate http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/gijinka-%E6%93%AC%E4%BA%BA%E5%8C%96-humanization

I like it so long as the art true to the original character/creature.

OMG!!! Yeah! is so cute!

I don't know why it would be controversial, though I don't know anything about the subject, hee hee.

Also, I've yet to play Moemon

I'm not for or against it either way, although I do like seeing the interesting ideas people come up with.

I'm not a huge fan of it, but I can appreciate when it's done well. Like this one, for example

I personally think it can be done well, so it depends on how it's done. Otherwise I have no qualms about it.

I've designed a few before, they can be really fun. Maintaining the essence of the character's design in creative ways is neat. Yknow, the ones that make you go "yeah that is exactly the same character, I can feel it."
There are some REALLY bad ones out there, but there are plenty of good ones too.
