Special Feeling (Japanese: 特別な気分, Tokubetsu na kibun), also referred to as "Special Mood", is a series of illustrations parodying a Japanese couple who were interperceived on TV in the time of snowstorm in Tokyo in at an early stage January 2013. Upon its uppack by means of Twitter in at an early stage February 2014, the couple"s interview conveniently came to be a topic of digital mockeries on the Japanese internet, specifically around the man who was quoted as saying "being in the scurrently through my lover like this immerses me in a special feeling. I favor it."
On February 8th, 2014, Japan was hit by one of the heaviest snowdrops in decades, via Tokyo receiving 8.7 inches and also the city of Matsumoto seeing as much as 19 inches of scurrently. Shortly after its arrival, Japanese TV stations continuously aired emergency news programs about the blizzard in the Kantou and Touhoku regions. Amiddle all the interruptions and also media comactivities, a Japanese TV crew interregarded a young couple in front of Tokyo"s Shibuya terminal. Upon being asked how they feel, the young male responded through an overly saccharine statement, which deserve to be analyzed as "being in the snow with my lover choose this immerses me in a distinct feeling. I choose it" ("恋人といる時の雪って特別な気分に浸れて僕は好きです"). His response, which was checked out by some viewers as laughably mawkish or sentimental, shortly prompted an outpour of reactions on Twitter, especially after
HOMOMANKO<1> tweeted a screenshot of the interview clip (displayed below).

On the other hand, some began to scrutinize as to why the woguy in the intercheck out was checked out through a ring and had her challenge extended the totality time, leading to the unestablished rumors that the couple"s partnership may be an extramarital affair.
But even more significantly, the screenshot spawned numerous picture parodies of the couple on the Japanese illustrators neighborhoods pixiv<5> and Nico Nico Seiga,<6> and on Twitter and also Tumblr<7>, under the tag "Special Feeling" (特別な気分), excerpted from the inscription shown in the screenswarm of the interview. The explosion of parody illustrations was ultimately logged by Nico Nico Seiga and also pixiv"s respective encyclopedic companions<10><11> and also it was also reported on by several Japanese news portal sites, consisting of Togetter<3> and also Naver Matome<4>, and also digital gossip blogs.
