Yep went today, a rare gaijin specimen. Didn’t buy a lot but it was really interesting to see all the different tables, it was like an artists’ alley in America on a grand scale. Currently surveying my doujins regretting not buying more reigisa…

We went to Ikebukuro today… What have we done… We haven’t even been to comiket yet… And these are just the dangan ronpa spoils… Send help…

chiggix:

Me and longlostlora were sitting in our hostel in Okinawa and I ended up reading this really interesting article from the Japanese perspective on the gay marriage tomodachi life PR disaster, and how Japanese and Western attitudes on discrimination don’t match up.

I was translating longer and longer bits of it for her and finally she told me people might find it interesting if I just translated the whole thing and posted it on tumblr, so here it is, under the cut.

Interesting perspective into what Japan thinks of western concepts of media representation! Also more info on why Nintendo responded to the tomodachi same-sex relationship crisis the way they did.

Ordinarily I pack lightly for the airport and wear all my bulkiest clothes at the expense of comfort (so I don’t have to pack them) 

I started to do that today… but then… NAH

if I’m gonna spend 33 hours in transit I might as well be a comfy coconut 8) wearin a pajama shirt, oversized school jacket and leggings and packed some high socks in my carry-on (for the chilly window seats)

Will prob post intermittently while I’m in Japan buuuut proobbbbably no art until I get back in a month.

Goodbye to everyone I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to in person!! (or… you know what I mean.)

me: not.... neopets...

dangit natu WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH ALL THESE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS

"I’ll post more art" posts weird 7 am shit instead

maybe I should also take this time to acknowledge that I haven’t posted art in a while! I’ve been working really zealously on personal projects, especially High Fog.  I’ll post some progress stuff here soon for friends/people who are curious. :)

Unfortunately, this blog will prob experience an “official” dry spell soon as I am going on a (much-delayed and much-anticipated) trip to Japan to visit my friend Chig and take in the sights 8) Since we are hitting up comiket and ikebukuro+akiba, I wonder if I should get into something popular.

I haven’t been watching yowapeda for a reason……….. I’m afraid I’ll like it 

but maybe it’s time

Anyway uh thanks to everyone who continues to stick around (in spite of this blog being pretty uneventful a lot of the time, and me with my chronic internet lurker syndrome). I’ll be active on here again one day! Especially when my visual novel nears completion :D

Tumblr suggested you as one of this follow suggestion things that appear on yo dash and I thought your art was super cute!! ouo
