For example, one kid digs j-Rock so he wants to know: Who is the [boy] [sing+ing] a [song]? The [boy] [sing+ing] a [song] is Yojiro (Noda). Hiloonity ensues.
Many Easter Eggs, including but not limited to TV Reporter, RADWIMPS, Base Ball Bear's female bass player, Maximum the Hormone, the horrifically over-rated Ring, and Kaburagi. Oh, and Where's Waldo, which is called "Where's Wally" in Japan. So pumped to get some jLaughs since even though the deadline was super tight, I took time to make the names and chars inside-jokey to the jKids! The best part is when they excitedly chatter about getting a joke before everyone else then they break it to their neighbors and then they all enjoy it together. So neat! Anyway.
Takeshi (Hosomi, sporting Ellegarden and The Hiatus gear, natch).
This was the one doodle I was most happy with. It came out of nowhere, but I loved how he turned out.
I'm not really into The Hiatus as much as Ellegarden (Hosomi's previous band which went on indef. hiatus in 2008, just as I became a fan of them soon after landing in Japan for my first visit here).
But I am definitely rooting for Takeshi Hosomi's success. And check out how fluent he is!!
It's a splice of Naruto and Totoro.
In conclusion, I wish my Yojiro Noda woulda came out better.
Why is it that the ones you really want are always just beyond your fingertips?
