After the recent release of the Detective Pikachu film trailer, fans worldwide have been picking it apart for new reaction memes and the like. Of course, many have found amusement at the uncanny expressions of Detective Pikachu himself.
In particular, one Japanese fan (@ode555) took it upon themselves to recreate a scene where Detective Pikachu makes a pained expression. The detailed figurine is almost harmful to stare at for too long.

At the very least, it seems like Japanese fans are having a ball with the film’s hyper-realistic artstyle. Let’s hope the rest of the film is just as entertaining, when it launches in cinemas worldwide next year.
