Fushigi Yuugi Forever!

YES.

This is perhaps one of the happiest moment of my life. TBH, I was just giving it a shot. Who knows, right? So I tweeted an old Nakago picture and mentioned Yuu Watase when I know she was online and JFC. I had hoped but never expected that she will like my sketch!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG…

If you didn’t know, Yuu Watase is the creator of one of the most amazing love story ever! The epic Fushigi Yuugi that has been a great influence to me as a growing artist!

Seriously.

I didn’t know how awesome it is to have your childhood idol to like your work but this is like being in cloud nine! I’m sure this may as well be just a courtesy likes since I mentioned her but fact is, SHE SAW MY DRAWING AND THAT’S WHAT MATTERS!

Because Watase liking my tweet is like a momentary connection with her. You don’t know how wonderful that feeling is. To know that once in her life, you two had this encounter. Especially for me since I’ve been a fan since 1999! That long! That’s like more than half of my life already!

’nuff said.

 

 

(I’ve been having a lot of Fushigi Yuugi feels as of late so yeah. I’ll be blabbing about it for some time. Just bear with me if you must)

  1. Awwww……just read this one Lexie! Good on you! Well done 🙂 I have been reliving her works as well and reminiscing….ahhhh……we had the best anime era ever! Nothing will ever compare to what we have seen and experienced. I may sound presumptuous but I really believe that after the Naruto age, everything else becomes a poor copy of other already existing animes. We are lucky indeed!

    • I gotta agree to that ate! With everything! And most of the anime our time were handdrawn. You can see the love of each animators to their work. I mean, I’m not saying there aren’t any good anime now but. Just that it greatly diminished in numbers… (Or maybe i’ve grown out of the typical HS themed anime. Haha!)
