YakiSoba Sketches by ItaLuv YakiSoba Sketches by ItaLuv
Some random sketches I did. Yaki and Soba didn't actually know each other as kids, but I felt like drawing them together anyways. xD;;

Sorry for the fugly censorship (not to mention the sideways pictures XD), but I had their names and other info there (albeit in Japanese) that I had forgotten to erase.

Translations:

(At the Top)
Yakisoba~♥

(Under Soba)
-Japanese
-High School Student
(OTL I just realized that I spelled it very incorrectly... I must have been braindead while I was drawing this. It should say "こうこうせい")

(Under Yaki)
-American
-NEET?*

(Chibi Dialogue, from left to right)

Yaki: Hey! Hey! I am not a NEET!

Soba: Then...are you a hikkikomori?**

Yaki: This isn't the NHK!!*** Geez...

*"NEET", that is, "Not currently engaged in Employment, Education or Training", is a term that originated in the UK and spread to Japan. It means exactly what it stands for; a useless deadbeat.

**"Hikkikomori" is a person with a type of social phobia. What classifies a hikkikomori as opposed to someone with agoraphobia, is that a hikkikomori, most likely, refuses to leave their room because of stress in Japanese society to succeed and be productive.

***The "NHK" is a fictional organization from the manga "Welcome to the NHK", that supposedly turns people into hikkikomori.

Yeah, basically the joke I had in mind here was: "A hikkikomori is automatically a NEET. Therefore, a NEET is automatically a hikkikomori!" Whoo-hoo! Ad hominem!

Yeah, I realize it's a bad joke.

Or it's just your own personal tribe, living in the forests of Hokkaido, calling them selfs bad in Kanji tribe "Meh-honjin"

because I always say Meh, if I don't like something.

So, you'll take the time to put a black square over the name, instead of just haphazardly erasing it with the eraser tool?

Wait, wait, waaaiiit. Why does Yaki have glasses if she's blind? :noes:

Soba wears sunglasses to protect her eyes. Internationally recognized symbols of the blind are sunglasses and a white cane. Think of the three blind mice, and how they all wore little round sunglasses. ^_^
