MangaFest 2018

Konnichiwa!!! 
It has been a while ne... 
Seperti yang telah aku tulis sebelumnya, banyak hal terjadi dalam hidupku belakangan ini dan mungkin akan merubah beberapa hal pada diriku. Kedo ne, di sini sekarang aku sedang tidak ingin membicarakan semua hal itu; di sini aku ingin membagi ceritaku di MangaFest 2018 UGM minggu yang lalu. 
Minggu, 28 Oktober 2018, yang lalu aku dengan dua orang teman menghadiri sebuah event Jejepangan yang diadakan oleh mahasiswa Satra Jepang Universitas Gadjah Mada. MangaFest merupakan sebuah event tahunan di mana para otaku dapat menunjukan diri mereka tanpa ada rasa minder dan mungkin dianggap Alien oleh beberapa orang. Event yang tepat untuk menunjukan minat.
Ramainya pengunjung di MangaFest membuktikan bahwa begitu banyak anak muda yang tertarik dengan dunia per-otaku-an. Sejujurnya, untuk masuk dalam event ini saja kami harus mengantri diantara teriknya matahari siang itu. Sebuah perjuangan. Untuk masuk ke dalam event ini, kita perlu mengeluarkan uang sebesar Rp. 15, 000.- Event MangaFest 2018 ini berada pada dua lokasi, yaitu indoor dan outdoor. Lokasi indoor untuk ruang pameran komik (kita bisa memilih komik yang paling kita sukai) dan ruang comicon ruangan yang disediakan untuk komunitas dan lainnya. Di lokasi indoor pula diadakan sebuah talkshow. Sedangkan panggung utama ada di lokasi outdoor. Di lokasi outdoor pula terdapat berbagai jualan makanan dan minuman, serta berbagai pernik per-otaku-an. 
Hari itu, seorang teman melakukan cosplay, menjadi Alice dari Alice and wonderland. Kostum yang sangat bagus lengkap dengan bonekanya, sungguh, bahkan beberapa kali oarang memintanya untuk berfoto bersama. Ketika mengantri di depan pintu masuk, tepat di depanku adalah Kikiyo dari serial Inuyasha. Luarbiasa, imut sekali. Kalau aku pikir sekarang, sungguh luarbisa mereka para cosplay-er ini; mereka tidak hanya memikirkan tema dan detail untuk cosplay yang akan dilakukan, tapi juga mereka rela menghabiskan begitu banyak uang untuk minat yang tidak murah ini. Sungguh sebuah dedikasi. 
Hari itu, ada begitu banyak cosplay-er dengan berbagai jenis karakter. Sejujurya, tidak semua tokoh yang di-cosplay-kan hari itu aku kenali; hanya sebagian kecil dari tokoh-tokoh yang di-cosplay-kan yang aku kenali.   
Dari sedikit tokoh yang aku kenali adalah mereka, mungkin karena aku dulu sangat suka dengan Kamen Rider. Betapa detail mereka menjadi Kamen Rider, seperti sungguhan, bahkan pedang, belt, topeng yang mereka kenakan sungguh detail dan seperti aslinya. Benar kata orang ketika kita sudah sangat menyukai sesuatu maka kita akan berusaha sekuat mungkin untuk menirunya, menjadi seperti dia yang kita sukai. Dan, lihatlah hasilnya, ketika kita melakukan sesuatu yang kita sukai maka, akan serius, detail, dan bersungguh-sungguh; hasilnya; sebuah masterpiece. Jauh di lubuk hatiku, aku juga ingin seperti mereka, melakukan sesuatu yang saat ini aku sukai dengan bersungguh-sungguh dan semoga saja mendapatkan hasil yang baik dan maksimal juga. (Ahahahaaa.... jadi curcol). Dan diantara semua cospaly-er, yang datang hari itu, ada satu cosplay-er yang menurutku paling luarbiasa, yaitu: Gundam.
Manurutku, effort yang diberikan untuk menjadi seorang Gundam sangat luarbiasa, mulai dari kostum yang sangat detail yang pastinya mahal dan tahukan kalian bahwa Ia membutuhkan orang lain untuk menuntunnya berjalan. Mengapa? Karena Ia seperti berjalan menggunakan engrgang. Kalau bukan karena kecintaan, tidak mungkin Ia mau melakukan semua itu. Hari itu, aku semakin kagum dengan dengan kata "cinta" dan "dedikasi". Event MangaFest 2018 semakin membukakan mataku bahwa semakin kita mencintai sesuatu maka akan semakin kita mendedikasikan diri kita padanya. Betapa luarbiasanya fandom, otaku, dan rasa cinta itu. Sekali lagi, aku ingin lebih mengenal dan mencintai lagi apa yang sedang aku lakukan saat ini. Aku ingin memberikan yang terbaik padanya, sama seperti mereka melakukan yang terbaik untuk apa yang mereka cintai (curcol lagi...Ahahahaha). 
Itulah MangaFest 2018 yang aku lalui minggu lalu, sebuah keceriaan karena aku bertemu dengan teman yang sudah lama tidak bertemu meski dalam satu kota (Yogyakarta) dan di sana pula aku melihat begitu banyak orang yang bekerja keras untuk apa yang mereka sukai dan cintai. Ada pelajaran di setiap kesempatan. Begitulah. 
Dewa, 
Jya mata... 
Baibai....

Happy Belated 25th Birtday Nakajima Yuto

Konnichiwa Minna!!! Since this is supposed to be a birthday post message, so I would like to greet a very happy belated birthday to you Nakajima Yuto. It is almost the end of August, I know. Have a please and wonderful year ahead. Please be happy and healthy always.
This year so many things happened, either in RL or in my fandom life. To be honest, I have an argue in me whether I should post something in Yuto's birthday or not. Both fandom live and RL are killing me. However, the last 10th of August was so special because it was Yuto's 25th birthday and Yuto is too dear to be abandoned. Happy birthday dear Nakajima Yuto, you, the core of my happiness. You, never ever failed to make my day, please be healthy, be happy, and be hype as always. Don't make your number of age limit the way you express yourself. Please always be the Nakajima yuto we all know, the one who never ever failed to make people around you be happy. However, do not ever force yourself, ne. We love you as you, as Nakajima Yuto. 
This month, August, something happened in me; something that I never imagine before. For the nth times, I have an argue to "quit" and to close this blog of mine. When my hearth and head walked in different paths, it is killing me. To be honest, this Yamajima is the reason why am I still here at the moment. Despite my murmur here, I want to say omedettou to Yuto as Daichi Suzuki in Suits Japanese series. Really, can't wait for this dorama. I like Mike Ross character so much and I really anticipate for Yuto's. Ganbatte ne Yuto! I know you can do it good. Yuto and Yuko will unite again after Boku gohan the movie.This Daichi Suzuki is a real good chance for Yuto to show his acting skill. Ganbatte!!!
The last part of this post, I would like to say ganbatte to Keito. This month, August, will be the last month I could see you in TV shows. I miss you already. Ganbatte ne Keito! One day, even if I am not here (in this fandom) anymore I still want to greet you when you comeback to JUMP. JUMP will always be a part of me. I am so happy in this fandom. However, sometimes something unexpected comes to our life and change a part of it. Something that we can't resist. I always love JUMP, especially you, Nakajima Yuto, the boy who I follow since Yayayah! show up until now. 
Once again Happy belated birthday Nakajima Yuto ! Your age is a quarter of century now. You have very right to do what you want to do. If you want to have a girlfriend or even to get married, you have the right to do that. Don't force yourself. Remember to be happy, healthy, and of course be yourself always. Love you.

Ganbatte! Keiton!

Konnichiwa minna!! Genki kai?
Seperti yang telah kita ketahui bersama bahwa Keito akan 'hiatus' selama dua tahun ke depan. Keito akan pergi ke Amerika per September tahun ini; bulan Agustus ini menjadi bulan terakhir JUMP bersama Keito sebelum Keito kembali lagi ke pangkuan JUMP di dua tahun yang akan datang.
Bulan Agustus yang menjadi sangat emotional untuk ku, ada banyak perasaan di bulan ini. Mulai dari bitter-sweet feeling karena ini bulan terakhir bisa liat Keito sampai doki-doki gak sabar buat Album dan ulang tahun Yuto yang ke-25th. Kembali ke Keito, tadi malam di Music Station (MS) menjadi performance terakhir Keito sebelum 'hiatus'. Keito, Aku akan sangat merindukan mu di dua tahun yang akan datang. I gonna miss you so much.
Waktu Jun (Matsumoto) bilang, "kalau liat foto 15 tahun yang lalu ini, dan liat Keito yang sekarang sangat berkembang". Jun kayak 'ayah' ne~ Kalau diingat-ingat dulu waktu pertama HSJ debut itu, Keito memang suka sekali menghindari kamera. Ada salah satu scene di footage-nya 'Ikinari' itu, Keito justru lari dari belakang cameraman waktu mau di shoot. Trus inget gak waktu tent-talk nya Jumping Car, di situ Yama bilang kalau Keito dulu tiap kali mau nyampaikan sesuatu selalu berbisik ke Yama. Keitoooo...... Keito dirimu harus lebih percaya diri. Yosh!!! Dulu juga, berkali-kali member JUMP itu protes ke Keito karena suara Keito yang terlalu kecil. Yah! kalau dibandingkan sama Yama dan Daichan yang suaranya memang paling kuat dan ribut di JUMP, suara Keito pasti ketutup. Hehehe..... Inget gak waktu di 'JUMP party 2' yang main karuta? Berkali-kali member bilang ke Keito supaya lebih semangat waktu nyebutin nilai yang di dapat. hehehe... Natsukasi na.... Ketika nanti kembali ke JUMP, ingin liat Keito lebih bangga sama dirinya sendiri! tanpa kehilangan berbagai sisi baik dan humble Keito tentunya. Humble Keito is the best. Ganbatte Keito!
Keito si baik hati, ganbatte ne! Kalau kata Yuyan, dua tahun itu waktu yang lama dan banyak hal yang bisa terjadi selama dua tahun; kalau Keito tidak bersungguh-sungguh maka dua tahun akan berlalu begitu saja. Sou, desu ne! Banyak hal yang dapat terjadi selama dua tahun ke depan dan semua harus bersiap. Apapun itu, kami akan menunggu Keito untuk kembali ke JUMP. Ganbatte ne Keito!
Tadi malam di MS Keito bilang, nanti ketika Ia kembali dari Amerika dua lagi, Ia ingin menjadi lebih mature. Ganbatte! We'll wait for you. Untuk ku secara personal, waktu dua tahun rasanya sangat cepat berlalu. Rasanya baru dua hari yang lalu aku memutuskan sesuatu dan hari ini masa dua tahun itu sudah berada di penghujungnya. Aku juga ingin melakukan sesuatu, sama seperti Keito. Aku juga ingin menjadi lebih mature. Watashi mo ganbarimasu!!!!
Baby Keito We'll gonna miss you so much! Ganbatte ne Keiton!! 
Tha's all!
Jya!
Mata..
And this is as a bonus  ^____-

Kinki Kids 20.2.21-Everything happens for a reason

Konnichiwa!!!!
Minna genki? Hehehe.... OK. I am in high tension mode at the moment.
Yesterday, I watched Kinki Kids 20.2.21 concert. It was really a beautiful concert, even KK always have beautiful one every year. Even though it was yesterday I watched the concert, I still am in high tension mode up until now. 
There are some notes to take for this 20.2.21 wonderful concert of KK; first of all, at this concert there's no pen light. I think, it was the first Johnny's concert with no pen light, wasn't it? Next, this beautiful concert was not only accompanied by a full Domoto Brother's Band but also a complete orchestra team. Really, I love this concert so much. 
In this concert they have solo corner, and this part of Koichi I love it so much. If I am not miss understood, Koichi said it was so hard to find what song to sing for an orchestra performance since he love dance song. Then, he remember this "Akatsuki" song. Really, Koichi sang the song was really beautiful. So beautiful. As for Tsuyoshi corner he did a performance with no song at the beginning.
Other points that I love about this concert was the tittle itself, 20.2.21-Everything happens for a reason. Why it was 20.2.21? Because the concert happened when the new year so it was also the turnover of Kinki's age from 20 to 21. The "to" was written with 2 since KK consist of two person. Sore de, if I am not miss understood; since I don't really speak Japanese. And for the tagline "everything happens for a reason" ,again if I am not miss understood, it was chosen because fans were worried about Tsuyo. Please someone correct me if I am mistaken. 
 And there's a cute point about this concert, it was when Tsuyo took off his cloths for Koich to see his 'complicated' cloth, then he got some problem when he need to wear it again. He asked some help from the staffs and go to the back stage but at the end he wear the cloth by himself because there were no staffs there. "maybe the staffs have some rest because it's MC talk time and KK always have a long MC talk" he said. So cute, really. How I love this person. Then, there's a time when the whole of fans in dome sang piano version of 'mou kimi igai aisenai'. So beautiful. Soshite, there's this mixed song of 'destiny' and 'secret code'. 
The last song they sang for the concert was 'Hakka Candy'. For me, personally, this 'Hakka Candy' is one of my favorites of KK's song. In this concert, they sang around twenty songs (maybe) and as always Kinki have a long talk. It seems there are around four times talk in this concert. I love KK with everything in them. Over all, I really love this concert; one of the bests concert I have ever watch. Thank you so much for this beautiful concert.
That's all minna. Jya! Mata!

Happy birthday to you Domoto Tsuyoshi. It has been more than three years now I am in this Kinki Kids fandom and I always found you a whole complete mystery, not a complain tough. I like you, everything in you. I like a complete Domoto Tsuyoshi.

The Shape of Water

Konban Minna!!!
To my surprised I made two update today; really, I surprised myself. Hehehe... I have just watched this movie entitle "The Shape of Water". This is the second movie I watched because of Nakajima Yuto; and blame Yuto to make me update this blog twice today. 
It's late but I just read Yuto's JUMPaper today and on his update he talked so much about this "The shape of water" movie. Since I was so curios what kind of movie Yuto watched, I looked for the movie and here I am; I have just done watching the movie without any skip. 
What I thought about the movie is,  it is a weird romance movie. OK. Not only weird but also an adult movie. If you think Nakajima Yuto is still a cute baby Yuto, hhmm, you have to think about it again. Hehehehe... He is not a baby anymore :)
Back to the movie that I have just watched. Just like what Yuto already described on his JUMPaper update the story line of this movie was about Elisa and the Fish man. Elisa, a mute young lady who work as a cleaning-woman at a secret government laboratory, fell in love with the Fish man she met at the laboratory. Just like Yuto also said, their beautiful love crosses species boundaries. Their beautiful love made Elisa life even more colorful, more alive. Elisa express more emotions out of her monotonous ordinary life.
But, what made me more curios was Yuto's next comment on his JUMPaper, he said, "it reminded me how wonderful romance is". OK. This comment means that Yuto ever had a romance before and he sounded so lonely right now. Ahahahaa... Yuto, dear you need to find your own Elisa too; someone who love you unconditionally. You already have actually, people who love you unconditionally, us, your fans. Hehehe... No. Seriously it is OK if you have your own beloved Elisa too. You have the very right to enjoy your life. It's humane.
Back to the movie; to be honest, for me this movie is too vulgar. Hehehe... Now, I am the one who sound like a baby here. But, really this movie too vulgar for my taste; the director was too bold. You'll find out what  kind of vulgar I mean here once you watched it. 
Lastly, watching a movie whose the actors you are not familiar with, makes you more objective. According to Yuto, not familiar actors made him more focus to the story. As for me, it is not my habit to watch a movie whose the actors was not familiar for me; because I am biased. I love some actors for some reasons. 
Over all, this movie was one of any others happy ending movie.
That's all. 
Off now. 
Bye bee ^^

Our Times

Konban Minna!!
A few days ago I watched a movie entitle "our times". I watched this movie out of my boredom. To my surprise, I like this movie.If you like the light romance drama, you should check this movie out. You'll love it. 
The story began when Lin Cheng-hsin, an huge fan girl of Andy Lau felt so stress out of her daily work but she always pretend to be happy all the ways. But then, she look back to her fan girl diary when she was 18 years old. At that time, the radio was announced that her beloved Andy Lau would hold a concert and played Andy Lau song "Forget love water" and all of these bring back her memories. 
The 18 years old Lin Cheng-hsin was a typically a high scholars girl; she was a real fan girl of Andy Lau. She lived next to school princess Tao Min-min and had a crush on the school prince Ouyang Fei-Fan. Lin Cheng-hsin has two best friends. One day,  Lin Cheng-hsin found a suspicious letter on her drawer. At first she thought it was a love letter but the she knew it was a chain letter with a warning that bad luck would happen to her and her family if she did not passed the letter to five other person. The naive young Lin Cheng-hsin believed it and wrote other chain letter. First letter was for the math teacher, a second letter was for Tao Min-min, her next door. The third letter was for Hsu Tai-yu, the gangster boss of the school. Hsu Tai-yu was hit by a car when he read the letter. As Hsu Tai-yu was a school patrol, it was not hard for him to find the one who sent him the letter.  After found out who was the sender of the letter, out of the blue Hsu Tai-yu made Lin Cheng-hsin as his "friend". He forces her to run errands for him in exchange for leaving Ouyang alone.
Later Lin Cheng-hsin knew that Hsu Tai-yu likes Tao Min-min; then Lin Cheng-hsin and Hsu Tai-yu made some conspiracy to separate  Ouyang from Tao Min-min. This conspiracy they have got them closer. They talked about somethings and become the real friends. Lin Cheng-hsin later knew that Hsu Tai-yu and Ouyang Fei-Fan was a best friends but something happened between them. Hsu Tai-yu was a good student, he even was a member of science honor class, he ever attended  Science Olympiad Competition. Lin Cheng-hsin then become more curios about Hsu Tai-yu. 
Lin Cheng-hsin curiosity made her come to Ouyang Fei-Fan and asked him what was actually happened and changed Hsu Tai-yu's life. Once Lin Cheng-hsin found out what happened to Hsu Tai-yu she decided to make Hsu Tai-yu move on and back to the real Hsu Tai-yu. Since then Hsu Tai-yu's life change, he even help Lin Cheng-hsin with her study. They even forget the main reason of their friendship was separate  Ouyang Fei-Fan from Tao Min-min. But, both of them was too afraid to face their real feeling; until one day Hsu Tai-yu gone. 
I like how the director developed the story line; it was so simple yet so beautiful. This movie was released on 14 August 2015 with US$2.7 million budget and box office for US$81.5 million. Wow!!!
That's all. If you bored you may check this movie and I am sure it will light up your mood :)
My favorite scenes of the movie
"I will make Andy Lau sing for you"
This one when Hsu Tai-yu really make Andy Lau sing for Lin Cheng-hsin
Over all, I love this movie. 
At the end of the movie it was not only Andy Lau was there but we also got  Jerry  Yan as bonuses :)
Jya Bye bee!!!
