Popular 2-Channel Ascii Arts Animated

It has been 12 years since 2-channel serves Japanese net users. The gigantic anonymous bulletin boards are still kept simple without image/movie, all you type is texts.
You may post URL of images there, and many 2-channel viewer clients, which many users are now using, extracted to display in the posts for convenience. But still, many prefer to use so-called Ascii Art, drawing composed by letters and symbols.
There are a lot of Ascii Art dictionary sites (example [J]) and assisting tools. 2-channel users copy and paste an Ascii Art which shows their emotion.
On a certain thread on 2-channel, users tried to make an animated gif version of well-known Ascii Arts.
Here, the Japanese letters “Ban-ban-ban” in background means a sound you bash not PC.

These animation show well how Japanese are seeing action in few texts drawings.
There are more on a 2-channel summary site Kinisoku [J].
