Anime Roleplaying on Twitter

I attended the Teachers’ Day celebration at my school yesterday. Well, it’s not actually held at school, since it took place in the hall at the hospital beside my school, which is owned by the foundation. For some unknown reason, I enjoy the last year’s celebration than this year’s. Maybe it’s because last year I was involved in a hand gesture dance performance with Siti, Eric, Andhyka and the seniors, that gave me some delightful memories? While this time I didn’t join any performance, other than the souvenir handover to the teachers? I don’t know the truth, but to be honest, the previous year’s is more memorable to me.

It’s almost noon when the celebration ended, before I went home. I opened my Twitter roleplay account and stopped my hiatus—I paused using that account for a week, due to the second try out. Oh yes. Since I’ve never told about my experience in roleplaying, I’ll say something about it this time.

Roleplaying, shortened as ‘RPing’, is like representing a character by acting as if we’re him/her. Seems that there are several types of RPing in Twitter, and I’m in the anime category. I currently play as Kiyoshiro Yumemizu, the forgetful detective from The Great Detective Kiyoshiro Yumemizu manga. I usually shorten its title as ‘TGD’, and it’s now becoming my favourite story in Nakayoshi :3. It’s my sister who introduced me to this RP stuff last September.

After doing it occasionally for two months, I find RPing quite interesting to me. By having this account, I gain information about manga and anime more easily. I’m an otaku (a term for those with great interest on something), so besides that I can also communicate with the ones with the same interests with me :D.

Anyway, this afternoon I coincidentally found an amazing video of TGD while browsing for that mysterious mystery manga—I say so because although TGD has many fans, its online scanlations are nowhere to be found and there aren’t much information about the manga on the web. What makes me super glad is that the video shows the animated version, though I haven’t heard anything about TGD’s anime! Big thanks for the one  who uploaded it >.<!

Drawing is My Life

I know that many many times in my life, I’ve admitted that I love drawing so much. But I never feel satisfied (hehehe :P). Today I want to tell you about my interest in this activity and how much I love it.

It’s normal that our drawings aren’t as nice as the professional artists’ when we’re still beginners. So are mine. I’ve owned this hobby since I was small. I even can’t forget that I used to draw on the walls inside my old house. Although at that time my drawings were still very bad, still, I did that confidently (?). I can’t remember well why didn’t I choose to do them on a piece of paper or even in a sketchbook instead of by dirtying those walls (plus, they’re painted white! Just imagine how dirty would it be… ^_^;). Maybe I was too lazy to look a suitable one for that :P… Of course, I drew on the walls when none of my family was there with me. But once my mum caught me when I was doing that (actually it’s done on a side of a wardrobe), she immediately scolded me. Starting from that day, I was no longer dare to draw on the walls inside my house or on the other unsuitable places. It’s proven that a couple of years later, when my family and I have moved to our new house, I stopped doing that bad habit.

I notice that as time passed, I kept on trying my best to improve my talent in drawing. Before, I could only draw some basic stuffs such as dogs, cats, trees, houses, people out of several lines with a circle as his/her head (I believe that you know what I mean), etc. Then when I was in kindergarten 2, I began to draw people more well and lively. I even began to make comics in my drawing books, although the contents were still unclear and they’re nonsense -_-. Moreover, my sister often laugh at them while she was reading them (in contrast that she wasn’t at the funny parts of the comics :D). I bet it’s all because of their unclearness. I also used to stop and cancel my comics as I didn’t have any idea for making the continuation of them, and start a new one (or even more @_@!). And that cycle kept on going on, since at that time I was very easy to get bored with my own stories.

Eventhough I like to draw comics since a quite long time, I hadn’t had a plan yet to be a cartoonist when I was still small. Perhaps I used to love it only, but I didn’t have any will to publish them. My mum, who’d ever seen them, sometimes asked me, “Why don’t you just be a cartoonist when you grow up and publish these?” But I always refused. It’s because I felt ashamed for my stories to be published. Anyway, I didn’t make the comics seriously. I just did that for fun.

I reckon that it all started when I was at primary 3. At that age, I watched a TV anime series entitled The Law Of Ueki. The reality is, that anime (also for the manga) is categorised under shounen demographic, or in other words, a manga for boys. But I really love it since the first time I watched the TV series. That anime is fantastic until it somewhat inspires me to be a cartoonist. The next year, I started to read its comic series and also a shoujo categorised-comic magazine called Nakayoshi. After that I felt as if I was encourage more to be a cartoonist, like what their authors were. Until I finally changed my mind―before I didn’t wish to publish any of my comics, but since I read them it turned out differently :).

By the way, as what I’ve mentioned before, the comics that I made in the past were nonsense that when I read them again nowadays, I can’t understand them :P…
