Anime Eyes Still Look Horrible On Real People

Anime eyes might look ok in, well, anime, but on real-life humans, they look freaky as hell.

Yes, the CGI in Alita: Battle Angel is better, but no less creepy. (In fact, it seems as though they are leaning into the unsettling aspect here.) And yes, this is an ad, but it’s an interesting look at giant anime eyes brought to life.
