even japan!

Yo I’m really confused with this whole bowstette and peachette thing and porn being made of one of them what’s going on

for Peachette: Nintendo reveals that toadette will be added in their new Mario game, but when she wears the crown powerup, she becomes Peachette. That’s it.

For Bowsette: this one is a little longer. So a guy by the name of ayyk92 made a comic a few days ago, about Mario and Bowser both being sad that they were rejected by Peach, so Bowser consumed the crown and becomes Bowsette so Mario and Bowser can date (and i guess tell off Peach). 

full comic

Obviously the joke was just how fucking weird it is for Bowser to consume a crown just so they can date. HOWEVER, this comic boosted in popularity fast in both the US and Japan, even getting the creator of fucking Dragon Maid to draw art of it. The artist went from 72 followers to 17k in a few days.

I’d link you some of the fanart but most of it is just porn. like constant porn. i literally tried safe searching for sfw fanart but i still found porn.

but there you go. that’s bowsette

i’ll never understand why we don’t call countries the names they actually call themselves 

like, i know this is a weeaboo-sounding example, but let’s start with Japan. They call themselves Nippon or Nihon depending on… i guess, the speaker’s accent??? or their level of formality while speaking??? I dunno. But we still called them Zipangu for like a few hundred years. And now we call them Japan. 

All because Marco Polo asked someone in China about that island over there and they said “oh that’s Cipangu” and Marco Polo was like “Oh, Zipangu, cool.” And then he went back to Italy and said “Y’ALL THERE’S THIS DOPE-ASS ISLAND CALLED ZIPANGU” and people back in Italy were like “An island called Giappone? Dope.” 

And this pattern of people mishearing people kept repeating until we got to “Japan.” 

And we still call them Japan even though we know better. Because fuck you, Marco Polo asked the wrong person 500 years ago and misheard them and we’re sticking to that, I guess.

not to be hyperbolic but receiving a link to this video, the most important sequel in the world, has singlehandedly restored my will to live and cured me of all my problems and ailments

Small, slightly obscure, but really cool thing that happens in episode 1 of Yuri!!! On Ice that I don’t think a lot of people caught:

The snow.

They probably weren’t watching the weather forecast there in the first two shots, they were watching the news. This cold front came literally out of nowhere, as, like the announcer says, it was supposed to be a perfect day for hanami, ergo going for a picnic to watch the cherry blossoms. But instead, lots of snow.

Now, for those of you who live in colder areas, like myself, you probably just went “well, unseasonal snow happens sometimes, I remember once we had snow in mid-May.”

For those of you who live in warmer areas, you probably went “idk how snow works, so I guess that sounds legit???”

No.

Snow in April on fucking Kyushu is beyond ridiculous, okay. They barely even get snow in the actual winter months. This is happening on April 11th - or even later - and they should be having temperatures in the 15-20°C/60-68°F range - or maybe even higher. And they probably were, before this. That’s why Yuuri’s so surprised and confused.

So why would they even bother including this?

Victor. It’s all about Victor.

In part, I suspect it’s a literary/poetry reference, even if I can’t quite place it, because “he came from the north, bringing ice and snow” is something of a universal literary image.

But mostly, it’s because, in Japanese, when someone does something highly unexpected and uncharacteristic, like, say, me cleaning my room, you express your surprise by saying “wow, does this mean it’s gonna snow tomorrow?”

And it didn’t just snow. It snowed a lot. It’s a reference to how ridiculously unexpected it is for Victor to wanna coach instead of skating himself, for him to show up in Japan out of the blue.

jeon jungkook called park jimin whos two years older than him by a pet name that only used by couples and even got KOREAN armys shook, jeon jungkook took park jimin to japan as jimin’s birthday present (keep in mind that jungkook ONLY gives birthday gifts to jimin, he doesnt give anything to other members and this has been confirmed by fellow bandmate kim namjoon), in that same trip, jeon jungkook made a 3 minute video of park jimin, not japan (even though the title says so), but jimin.

he used a gay song by a gay artist as the bgm and he always told us that he must knew the meaning behind a song everytime he listens or uses it.

jeon jungkook has a studio called the golden closet, through that studio he made a song cover of charlie puth’s we dont talk anymore along with park jimin, jungkook didnt change the pronouns.

golden closet also released many beautiful pictures and the majority of them are of park jimin. even people notice and admit that park jimin is jeon jungkook’s muse.

jeon jungkook went to japan A LOT, he had concerts there, meet new and talented people, went to disneyland, experienced a culture that is foreign and unique to him, but when asked what was the most memorable thing about japan, he answered that watching park jimin overslept was something that he will always treasures and will never forget.

watching park jimin overslept is more memorable to jeon jungkook than going to the disneyland

the hyungs of bangtan have said that theyd allow jungkook to use banmal with them, but jeon jungkook refused this with the exception of one person, park jimin. until this very day the only hyung that jungkook ever speaks banmal to is park jimin, even though in terms of age kim taehyung is a lot closer to jungkook.

jeon jungkook is the one who always waits for park jimin because hes slowest of all the members, jeon jungkoon deliberately starved himself to stop park jimin from doing the same, jeon jungkook would pay for park jimin’s parents’ birthday expenses even though its going to cost him a lot of money

but of course, since jeon jungkook and iu glanced at each other once for a second in the SBS Gayo Daejun, he must be dating her

“Tokyo at Night” #02

This is the second piece in my new “Tokyo at Night” series that I’m painting when I have some time between work, comics, book work and videos.

I wanted to do such a series for some time but I never managed to get to it and now we already moved out of Tokyo with Kana. Before we went though, we did few location hunting sessions around Waseda, Iidabashi and Kagurazaka. This series is based on the material we gathered during those late evening walks.

I wanted to show this side of Tokyo which everyone living longer in the city knows but that is not usually shown on photos and paintings. Small, anonymous, empty streets at night. Random, sometimes a little bit scary buildings. This too is one of the faces of Tokyo.

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: HOLBEIN Waterford natural 300g/m cotton paper
  • Sketch: Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil grade HB
  • Line: COPIC Multiliner SP 0.5mm
  • Colours: my main 48 colour Schmincke set

新しいイラストシリーズ「東京夜行」の2枚目です!やっと時間を作れて描き始めました。 ずっと描きたかった夜の東京の風景のシーリズ作りを先延ばしすぎて、カナと一緒に江ノ島のあたりへ引っ越ししてしまったけど、その前に飯田橋、早稲田と神楽坂のあたりで夜のロケハンをしていました。

東京に住んでいる皆がよく知っている、ちょっと寂しく、ちょっと怖くて、不思議な無人のマンションに挟まれた道の景色。こんな、写真や絵にあまりなってない街の部分を見せたいイラストシリーズです。
