Random Rants. Pass it, if you just want to know who the hell is the 'yankee-looking" boy above XD
DUH. I practically hardly drew anything lately. Unless for some doodles. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH ME??? >< *So here is I'm crushing my own Spartan Training. I've missed some events of contests here for sure. Grrrh... What to blame besides myself? This Light Novel. So from the beginning of October till the now, I'm struggling with my own new light novel series: OTA-KATA (The Way of Otaku). Basically I wrote it for an otaku group's event in FB (Otaku Creative Division, OTCD). It was for its 1st Anniversary. You could say I'm breaking my own writing records since I spent only about 3 weeks to finish the season 1 (consisted of 120 more pages)
I'm working on the 2nd season too, though it's only in pending coz I'm doing collabs with my own lecturer (sweet ><)
However, then comes the back-fire result. My writing button and drawing button seem don't get along well. Whenever I'm enjoying drawing, I barely write something. On the contrary, when I'm too much engaging in my own writing, yeah, I ignore my drawing...
DAMN! How to make the two go hand in hand? >< I'm troubled! So much troubled. Anyway I got "the most favorite light novel" (among 15 participants :v hahahah) in the event... (the admin sent me phone credit XD) Now they're holding the 2nd stage of the event which the participants shall draw 4-koma manga/manga based on the winning light novels (including mine yeah XD). I wonder whether I could join or not, since my drawing button is a bit off... DANG
But I've got the best news today: one of the participants is gonna drawing a full manga based on the LN! Crazy! I mean, it's 120 pages more, Dude! With more than 10 characters. If he could manage them before the deadline, he must be not a human! LOL But he said that to me. And finished drawing sketches of the whole characters, including the uniforms, and the school-setting! CRAZY! And he did that only for 2 days! ARGH! Who are you? Which planet do you came from???
So yeah, I'm honored (since he is considered as one of the "Masters" in our group. And another group!" I can't ask for more XD I'm so excited! Wish I would have be able to show you the manga by the time he finished it XD
LN's STORY OF OTA-KATA
So the story is about a group of otaku in school who is struggling to get recognition from the school and especially from the student council who really wanted to close down the club. Simple. Yeah. So the conflict will be around the characters' interactions when they're making and doing some strategies to keep the club. I could say, no one is normal in the story unless the main character (who also had a complex background, an ex-hikikomori turning to a school's Miss Beauty). Hahaha, it's so comical. I'm inspired by many gag animes like Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai, Perfect Girl Evolution, and Isshukan Friend.
The genre is comedy and reversed-harem. Yeah. Almost all characters all boys, and I modeled all of them based on the admins and members of OTCD XD I'm glad they like it enough. I deliberately write the story while imagining the script of OTOME GAME XD (love simulation game for girls where they could play to attract the boy characters XD). Though I never play one XD
So the boy above named Nobuyoshi Fei (Cast: Fergi Theo S.). He is the leader of the club, but seems doesn't put enough concern for the club which is about to close down. His specialty is making simple animation video and AMV (Animation Musical Video). Behind his laid-back attitude and rash appearance, he is a genius who's the rank 1 student in school. That's why the school seems closes its eyes though Nobu (or Fei) hardly comes to class and never wears his uniform properly. (He loves wearing his Chelsea T-Shirt/Jacket)
He has many piercings and tattoos in his body. No one knows that every time he feels the pain in his life, he would add either his tattoo or the piercing. So he would remember the pain for the rest of his life.
He said he never gives his loyalty to other than himself, but he will never betray his friends either. He's like the biggest walking paradox in this story. And he will involve in bitter banter interaction with the main heroine. Apparently he lives in school (the club's room) due to certain problem he has in home. He has some baito (freelance works) because he's saving money so he could live by himself after graduates. He's actually pretty serious about his future as he aims to get into one top art school after high school.
The name of Nobuyoshi means: LOYALTY. While his name "FEI" was taken from the name of General YUE FEI from ancient Chinese Dynasty. Yue Fei is the symbol of loyalty though in the end he was put into a death sentence by the emperor he served. General Yue Fei, had a tattoo carved on his back, some Chinese characters saying: LOYALTY TO YOUR COUNTRY.
Nobu has the same tattoo on his back. But it was tattooed out of his own willingness. It was his great grandpa, a veteran of Sino-Japanese war, who was for certain reason drifted to Japan and never be able to return to his country. However, until his last breath, he still moaning his loyalty to the government and that disgusted Nobu, somehow.
Well yeah, he's one character who has the most complex past for his life background. Seems like I enjoy torturing him to the max! Hahahaha XD I wrote the light novel in my native language. Dunno if I will be able to translate it completely into English since it consists so many local jokes. So...
Well... Here's your lovely bad boy XD
Oh yeah, he's a devoted Christian actually (appearance did lie to us!). Just like the real Fergi modeled for this character. Apparently my Christian characters is adding more and more LOL XD (And mostly are boys, rather than girls). Yeah, I do some wiki/net referencing XD
