SDL: Renegade of Funk by terriblenerd SDL: Renegade of Funk by terriblenerd
If you walk without rhythm, you never learn
("Weapon of Choice", Fatboy Slim)

Because SDL just doesn't have enough crazybitch!

Ladies and gents, Ani. Yes, I know about her name (both the kanji and the usual meaning of "ani".) I'm three weeks from a B.A. in Japanese. It's deliberate, trust me.

Ani was deposited at a monastery at age ten. Her mother probably thought it was a normal monastery. Her mother was also sadly mistaken. An order of souhei, or warrior monks, they were a little-known faction mainly utilized as assassins by the warring powers. (The ability to detach from all worldly concerns is quite useful when someone needs to be taken to the cleaners.) The monks were trained in some performance art - singing, dance, mastery of an instrument, etc. - as well as a complementary fighting style. Ani was taken in, discovered to be a terrible performer in any kind of musical setting, and subsequently assigned to the acrobats. At age 20, she was turned out of the monastery, citing a) a complete failure to master detachment, and b) the fact that as a woman, she was a distraction to the monks.

What happened after that is anyone's guess. ;)

The SDL will never be the same once Ani finishes with 'em. Just steer clear of Kuraima for a while or people might think you're gunning for *Unknown-person =p

Actually... that would be another awesome-sauce bit of pretty wouldn't it... And now I'm conflicted again.

I love the pose, how she's just kind of... balancing, ready to fall and then kill you.
Glad to see the return of Annie. Or Ani.

It's just that 'ani' in Japanese is most commonly used to refer to your own older brother, and it's really irritating when people who think "OMG I CAN SPEEK JAPANEEEEEEEEEEZE" tell you that what you've written is wrong.

chibiinu11 Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
Ah. Many thanks.
Though I thought that was aniki? Or is that a respectful term?
(I have no idea, I don't speak Japanese; I just read lots of manga. And watch anime. I lean more towards the French side of languages.)

Aniki is another one, yes. So is ani-ue. Onii-san, nii-san. There's like fifty billion ways to address anyone, all with varying levels of respect. The Japanese like to keep their options open. You should see how many different ways there are to refer to husbands and wives. It's crazy.
