Sashihara's solo single in May of 2012 "Soredemo suki da yo" included lyrics like "The plain-looking one within the group", "There are cuter girls".
Even celebrities like Sanma Akashiya called her "Busu tantou" (in charge of ugliness), Ogiyahagi's Hiroaki Ogi said.
"Sashihara's one of the nasty looking ones", and Hiroiki Ariyoshi even said, "We must be in the era of ugly girls. The people whom women want to root for will be the ones becoming popular.
Her public image has become "ugly", and one of her selling points have become "she can easily be pushed around".
But more and more people have started seeing her in a different light. Even the anti-Sashihara manga artist Yoshinori Kobayashi wrote on his blog, "I'm aware that people, not only her wotas, but even some of my editors have been thinking that Sahihara's actually starting to look cute. It kind of even eliminates her reason for existence".
Even on 2channel and Twitter, various comments have been made:
"Hm? Sashihara's actually pretty cute."
"What should I do? I'm starting to think that Sashihara is cute."
"Don't you think Sashihara's actually cute??????"
"The reason why she ranked 1st is because she's actually cute."
Go see an ophthalmologist
Her plastic surgery must have gone well
They must be crazy
But I think Sashihara's cute
The 3 greatest beauties in the world
Cleopatra, Yang Kwei-Fei, Sashiko
Her mouth and teeth are hard to look at
They probably asked the writer to come up with this kind of article
She seems like Guts Ishimatsu
Everyone's eyes has just gotten used to her
When I watch her for an hour, there are about 3 seconds where I think she's cute
She's not cute at all!
Let me say it once more since it's an important thing.
She's not cute at all!
Her face looks like a granny's.
Feels like she'll appear as a detective in those Tuesday suspense dramas.
Depending on the picture, there are cuts where she looks irritating, but I think she's cuter than Yuko Oshima and that scraggy face of hers.
When she's being talked about like this, it just means that she's actually ugly.

Well duh, if you have 1st-rate stylists and make up artists, and make a horse driver wear cute costumes, then a 20-year-old girl would of course look cute for at least 5 seconds in a total of 30 minutes. And if you make her wear bangs over her eyebrows, and if she has perfect makeup on, then it'll actually be weirder if you still can't see her as cute.
These guys must be stupid.
I actually realized recently that "Wow, she's actually ugly"
When she was 18
I'm concerned about the sag under her right eye.
She's still so young.
As long as one has talent, the face doesn't need to be that cute.
If people just want beautiful faces, there are tons more of these out there.
Can you still call Sashihara ugly after seeing these pictures
Everyone's just gotten used to her...
Sashihara's the only ugly one in that Gusto commercial
Her smile lines look like they were etched
I don't think she's ugly, but she has an old looking face that makes you want to slap it.
I think she's totally faking her age
She's definitely uglier than a commoner
Can you still call Sashihara ugly after seeing this?
Let me just praise her legs
She looks like a cuter version of Hamada's wife
A bare-faced Rino Sashihara
She's ugly, but more than that, she has a disgusting face
She really looks like an old lady
They really look alike.
- 指原はなにげにSamantha Thavasaとかの仕事してるんだよねSashihara's actually an endorser for Samantha Thavasa too
She's always had this "ugly character" label attached to her, so that image has already stuck.
Her cheekbones are protruding and the part below her nose is long, so she's actually classified as ugly.
Takako Matsu falls into that category, but each of her parts look elegant. Therefore,
Takako Matsu is a beautiful girl who sometimes looks ugly.
Sashihara is an ugly girl who sometimes looks beautiful.
All of you guys are talking about Sashihara based on your image of her.
AKB is basically a gathering of ugly girls.
Sashihara's actually on the cute side.
She's not as cute as Paruru and Yuihan, but she's not that bad.

Well, she is cute within AKB.
She's at the top, after all.
You won't be able to count how many are below her.
She's not as ugly as everyone claims her to be.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey LOL
Don't get used to her now LOL
Sashihara: "Oh, so you're getting in the way of business."
