Ummmmm. One of these days I swear I will draw a serious, badass Hokushin and Yusuke picture. Anyways, today was not that day.

(Based on the drawings I post, I wonder what my followers who aren’t familiar with Yu Yu Hakusho think this series is about …)

In a few days I’ll be leaving for Makai for three years to see my ancestral father Taiwan for a few weeks to visit family amongst other exciting things! (Eating, sightseeing, drawing/painting, probably looking for doujinshi/Yu Yu stuff etc.)

So, just a note to say that I might be a bit quiet in terms of posting, and/or you might see more non Yu Yu stuff, but please don’t think my passion is dying …! (although who knows, maybe it won’t affect anything and I’ll continue to post dumb drawings lol)

EDIT: Oh! This is my 1,111th post!

Hahaha oh is me :(

Hahaha oh is me :(

I was rereading my Meikai books (Mandarin editions of the Japanese books) and forgot that they had these random pullouts just inside the cover. This is a questionable personality test from the first book. Basically all you gotta do is look at the panel, read the question, and pick Yes or No.

Many thanks to my sis for helping with my terrible translations and making them less terrible. We tried to translate more for meaning versus making it literal to avoid having to explain idioms. If it sounds really dumb/repetitive, bear in mind this was targeted to small children.

Too lazy to make a better scan, too lazy to edit the picture lol my comments are in italics.

PERSONALITY DIAGNOSIS REPORT!?

Let fate uncover your true personality!

Yu Yu Character Gate of Judgement!

Follow the arrows to answer each question and you’ll be able to know what your own personality type is. Let’s begin!

Koenma: The first question is really important!

* Yu Yu Hakusho is my favourite!

-> [No] Genkai: DUMBASS*, START OVER FROM THE BEGINNING!

// I was gonna put something ruder here but it’s supposed to be for kids! lmao

[from here on, this is right to left, top to bottom in terms of the panels]

- 1st row -

[Yes - background is Yusuke’s beaten up face] * You hate deviousness!

[Yes - background is Kurama talking about his past to Yusuke] * You have a mysterious past …

[No - background is Hiei and Yukina] * You have brothers or sisters.

// sorry everyone, unless you’re an only child you can’t be Yusuke

- 2nd row -

[No - Kuwabara and Yusuke arguing] * You frequently fight with your friends!

[Yes - Atsuko nagging Yusuke] * You get along better with family.

// ????? how come this goes back to Yusuke’s path LOL well I guess especially at the beginning he gets along better with his mom than, say, most other people … but then it’s weird because it’s harder to get to Kurama unless you say no

[No - Yusuke’s shocked face] * Your feelings are clearly written all over your face.

- 3rd row -

[No - Kuwabara punking Yusuke] * You like pranking other people!

// this is your last chance to work your way back up to a Yusuke type rofls

[No - Hiei] * As soon as you think of something, you act!

// why the picture is Hiei, I don’t know … aside from being literal about his speed

[No - Kurama trying not to laugh] * Truth be told … actually, my grades at school are extremely good!

- Results -

URAMESHI YUSUKE TYPE

You don’t like to think in a convoluted fashion and are definitely a Yusuke type! Everyone likes you, you’re a leader!

KUWABARA KAZUMA TYPE

Everything is written clearly on your face, definitely a Kuwabara type. Of course you’re very emotional, but you’re more dedicated than anyone else … right?

// we have the suspicion that most little kids probably ended up here and got mad. My sis admitted to frequent cheating to get to Kurama

HIEI TYPE

Outwardly emotionless, but in reality your heart burns more passionately than anyone else. With this kind of personality, you’re a Hiei type of course!

KURAMA TYPE

With good grades and cool-headed thinking you’re just like Kurama; instead of being a leading man, you’re a calm strategic type.

- What the characters are saying -

Keiko: Which type am I most like?

Botan: Don’t hesitate, hurry up and answer!

Atsuko: No matter what type you turn out to be, you’re not allowed to complain!

==========

Depending on “interpretation” I can end up with Kuwabara or Kurama. There’s no way I can get to Yusuke or Hiei unless I just flat-out lie. lol
Sudden urge to freehand ink something and grabbed some crappy paper. #inktober I guess?

Whateverrrr ichigorennyu I know you just wanted me to draw an otter. I can’t draw otters

SHOTCLAM!!!

OK I’m going to bed now haha

???? Was this a conspiracy? @trimmedreaper adonisturtle Didn’t think TWO people would say the same character in such a short timespan and not one I would have thought of and there’s no way you could have seen each other’s requests. lol

But anyways, this seemed kind of like the only obvious interaction. I mean, the only time you actually see Enma Daioh in the flesh (so to speak) is when he’s like “Go kill Yusuke because he’s demonspawn”

God this colouring is ass lol

I have literally drawn more middle fingers in the last 2-3 months than I have in my entire lifetime to date … (I feel like I said something like this before …)

Maybe I shoulda made Yusuke’s top yellow and his pants blue, but didn’t think of it till after lol

bored/silly

Waiting for brush pen to dry on another picture I’m working on. Quick, please give me a character to draw with Yusuke (the more uncommon/amusing the better) while I am procrastinating on productive things lol till like 9:30pm or something haha /Oct 16 2014

edit: * clarification - Another Yu Yu Hakusho character ^^;

time’s up!

Brushpen and watercolour on a Japanese etegami postcard pad from Ichiban Living.
A gift for a very old friend! We met online when we were in elementary school and were part of a Yu Yu Hakusho mailing list well before anime and manga were as big as they are today, and also 2 of 3 Yusuke fans active on the list at the time (pretty much everyone else, unsurprisingly, was into Hiei and Kurama). We started a Yusuke fanclub, made horrible geoshitties websites (Yusuke shrines lmao) and wrote terrible fics all possibly floating around the net somewhere still. We also wrote each other enthusiastic, juvenile fangirl letters full of drawings and emotes and doujinshi we had made ourselves (and learned we both saved most of the hilarious, embarrassing things the other person had sent).
After losing touch around the period we graduated high school/went to university, today was the first time we met in person. Her exclamation on seeing this was “MY HUSBAND” lmao no it’s my husband

Appropriately enough, we caught up on years of news and stories at a ramen place. Thank you to her partner and my friend for putting up with our reminiscing hahah. Ah what a beautiful nostalgic feeling!
