The Japanese Kids with Superpowers

Photos are emerging of Japanese schoolchildren with seemingly superhuman powers that can hurl their fellow students into the air.

These girls don’t have superpowers its just a photo craze. Known as  Hadokening or Makankosappo,  the photo craze involves two or more children staging a superpower knockout sequence  as seen in the popular Japanese fighting arcade game Street Fighter and manga series Piccolo (Dragon Ball) and photographing themselves in mid-action. They then post the images to Twitter with the hashtag #Makankosappo. The craze started in South Korea as far back as 2009 but has since gained popularity in Japan among Japanese schoolgirls.
