The Boys Season 2: Karen Fukuhara Invents New Sign Language For The Show

The Boys has become all the rage on the internet now.

Nifty little trivia about the second season of the show are springing up all over town.

One such fact has sprung up about the Female/Kimiko, played by Karen Fukuhara in The Boys.

It has recently come to everybody’s attention that the sign language Karen Fukuhara’s character uses in the show is unlike anything the world has ever seen.

It is unique and has no actual real-world counterparts.

This exclusive sign language is confirmed to have been developed by the actor herself.

In the second and third episode of The Boys Season 2, Fukuhara uses a form of sign language that is unorthodox and not like traditional sign language symbols and gestures used in the real world.

It is not the American Sign Language we see her using in the show.

The official twitter account of The Boys revealed that the language did not exist. It was Karen Fukuhara that came up with it.

Karen Fukuhara is so talented she literally created her own unique sign language for her role.

Many fans noticed that the gestures do not match with the American of any other form of sign language.

It was distinct and one of a kind. The Boys’ Twitter account helped clarify the doubts posed by the fans.

In an official tweet, they confirmed that the language was invented, and was not pre-existing.

“Some of you might notice that Kimiko is not using ASL or any known sign language. @KarenFukuhara worked with a sign language expert to create her own unique sign language #TheBoysTV.

Here is the official tweet:

The ferocious and primal Female is actually a linguistics prodigy.

You can’t just invent a new language out of scratch. It is not everybody’s cup of tea.

It takes a very careful understanding of the inner workings of human interaction and how we assign meaning to words, sounds, and gestures to come up with a language.

Only the greatest literary geniuses like Tolkien and George R.R Martin have been capable of coming up with a whole new language of their own.

The fact that Karen Fukuhara is capable of such an impressive feat makes us wonder if she is over-qualified for her role.

Based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys explores a world where superheroes exist but they live on morally grey areas.

They are far from benevolent beings and it is up to Billy Butcher and The Boys to reveal the world their true nature.

The Boys Season 2 showed the good guys on the run from the government after the death of Madelyn Stillwell, the erstwhile Vought CEO.
