the otaku wonderland
This is something I had been working around in secrecy behind the stages of deluscar – a new mascot called Rin Kougetsu, Ran’s imouto who loves playing games and also have a few dark secrets.
I love contrasts, if it’s not already obvious, and I attempted to go for a contrasting design in Rin’s character as opposed to Ran’s. From their personalities to their preferred outfits (Ran usually prefers black/red outfits while Rin prefers white/blue) to their figures and statures. Although I still generally kept the same hair and eye colors to express their sibling relationships.
To know more about her, feel free to go to my newly created profile page for her, which also contains a few other illustrations I had been commissioning withheld in secret for awhile.
Due to some circrumstances in my childhood, there was a period of time where my perspectives, opinions, tastes and cultural views differ to my other friends. Especially during the later parts of my childhood when my friends started having specific hobbies which weren’t quite as easily accessible – my own hobbies begun to differentiate themselves from the rest. While the rest of my friends were talking about the hottest anime or games, I was playing extremely antique, uncommon games or just stuck studying in general. I never did watch any anime aside from the random bits and pieces of VCDs, or if I was in luck, Cartoon Network might air one. Of cause, this changed once I had internet at home. I easily caught up with the latest episode of Naruto which was still the most common talk around the school, with some other anime to boot, including even the more uncommon titles. However, while I could easily catch up with anime, even when I had internet, I chose not to follow in their footsteps, with my hipster gaming status remaining even to this very day.

English name: Golden Darkness
A dispassionate, withdrawn assassin, Golden Darkness is hired by one of Lala’s arranged suitors, Lacospo to kill Rito, until she breaks the contract, noting the true nature behind her target. Golden Darkness is currently staying on Earth, roaming around the city streets and Sainan High, with a motivation to continue her duty to assassinate Rito, although she has yet to accomplish this (hinting she only said this as an excuse to stay on Earth, which is then confirmed). Commonly referred as “Yami-chan”, she spends her time reading books and magazines, while eating taiyaki (it is the only thing she eats on Earth since it is the first food offered by Rito, prior to spending a night at the Yuuki residence for a sukiyaki dinner). By her planet’s calculations, she is 24 thousand years-old (as shown in season 1 where the job applicant stops Konjiki no Yami just before she was about to say ‘thousand’), despite having the appearance of an 11-year-old (albeit a rather mature one), although this is only mentioned in the anime and has a weakness towards anything slimy.
Like Lala, Golden Darkness’ physical abilities are exponentially stronger than a human’s. She carries a unique ability to turn her body parts into various objects through use of nano machines circulating her body, ranging from swords to dragon heads. Unfortunately, excessive use becomes a hazard to her health. She states she hates “ecchi” people, and does not hesitate to assault a person who looks at her in an obscene way, even if it’s her own fault like when she was using her abilities to increase her bust she attacks Rito when he saw her, mostly out of embarrassment or for many occasions standing at the top of something such as stairs where her panties could be seen by accident. She has also stated, that she doesn’t understand if she can feel love and all its wonders, though she slowly becomes closer to Rito once seeing that he is a good person.
I found out this figure since sometime ago through amiami’s popular item ranking, and only had some free time to unbox her recently. Despite To-Love-ru’s questionable quality, I will always be a fan and supporter of Yami. I haven’t yet watch To Love-ru Darkness however, though I did read the very first few chapters of the manga. Incidentally, I’m also a fan of Eve, a character from another manga by Kentaro Yabuki called Black Cat – the original character whose Yami’s design is based on. So I thought, “Ehh.. why not?”
Besides, she looks really fappable, and there goes another big portion of my monies…
When a person works hard, a reward works wonder. For example, if his concentration starts to drain, or if loses his motivation, having a reward would help one re-motivate himself to work harder. When you were a child, taking your examinations, I am sure your parents must had “bribe” you in some way or the other, right? Indeed, some may say such thinking is too simplistic, while some might say it’s childish, especially those of older ages. However, I noticed this mentality had been floating around to the minds of college students and even working adults.
I’m busy, and I wouldn’t claim I’m able to post on a very frequent basis, and always promised everyone I will be “coming and going like the wind”, due to my uncertainty of being able to keep up, but I’m still able to do so nonetheless. My guess is that it’s probably due to some of my blogging habits and schedule – which had already formed an unique blogging style of it’s own.
My blogging style makes good use of technological and internet improvements. First-off, a quick run down of all the relevant portable devices I owned – I have a smartphone: Galaxy Note, and a W8 tablet: Dell Latitude 10. What do I do with all these portable devices?
I blog on the go.
