I was looking through Ruki pictures today, and noticed again how much I love his demonic image.
I thought this deserved a little blog post.
Well, first of all it's his name. I love it.「流鬼」
Shed, flow, stream... style of, manner of... exile
I mean, you can read it like you want, ne, maybe he himself mentioned what it means... Probably the 'style of the demon', yet, I
always read and understood it as the ~overflow~ or ~spilling~ of demons... Or 'Overflowing with Demons', you know. As used in いつりゅう 「溢流」
And on stage, he never really plays the angel
, not exactly, ne. [SugarPainSugarPainSugarPainSugarPain...
am I traumatized? XD]
So yeah, going through pictures on photobucket, I came across this one first
Well, the Demon horns, obviously, but there's also a lot written on his neck and above his eyebrow, me thinks. I would love to see a close up of that one, it's too small.
The next one was this then, and my eyes flowed over in appreciation and amazement
I could only read the lower kanji on his neck 「殺」ころす which means 'to kill', and the one on his clothes, 「鬼」おに／キ which is the demon. Same kanji as in his name when written in kanjis, ne. So I went and looked up the other one, and sheesh do I love this word. It's 「呪」のろう meaning commonly 'to curse', but also 'to detest endlessly'
So it seems like, a death curse. Or killing curse. *is intrigued* I would love to know what the other badge says, though.
If anyone had more pictures of that shoot, maybe one where he doesn't cover it ♡
I came across this one, too, and if I am not mistaken...
... then aren't those black chits of paper 'anti-curses' or curses to drive out demons? Sticking all over him? Over him 鬼？ Maybe it's not that in this case, but it looks a lot like it. I love that image. [By the way I'm totally taken by his Cockroach outfit. I just love it.]
Oh and I also love the way he breaks free from that box... It's a Ruki-doll-box, ne. Full Posable, Deluxe Edition. And what's with the little doll he's holding? Sheesh, I just love this imagery... Your puppets are gonna come to life and kill you at night...
Next one was this old one here
I love it, too. I should hunt after more pictures where they have things written on them. Mmm ma, I'm not sure about this one, but what it says on his cheek might be... 「グロラマク」 Though the「ロ」 is extremely small.
Not sure if it's a kana at all. And I read アク first instead of マク, which then would have been 'evil'
But since it's not... hmm... I can only guess. It could be 「グロテマク」too, ne. . Does anyone know, please tell me lol. Gurotemaku? Guroramaku? Sounds like a word play.
Guro~ Grotesque. Maku~ Coil... *thinking of Toguro* ... maybe... maybe...
XD... Hrmmm... How did I never see that what I read as マ was a ス actually? Omgs... I can only think of one explanation why I just saw a MA and not a SU whatsoever... Of course it's Gurotesuku, grotesque, ne XD [I'm so bad when it comes to MAo XD sheeeesh... it's affecting me everywhere it seems haha]/Edit End
And what does it say on his bow? XD Can't read it. Well, I can read 鬼 and 礼, ne, but the kanji with that radical 攵 or 欠, I
can't find it in the electronic dictionary. And my beloved Kodansha is at home. *cries* Found it!
[But since I'm already at it ~ does anyone know online dictionaries that lets you look for kanjis by radicals? I know that monash one
, which isn't too bad... but you have to look for the radicals in an endless list XD]
So, anyway, the word is 敬礼 after all, meaning 'salute' omgs... did I just really get this urge to try and find all
the kanjis on his bow? @_@" I guess so.
Lol. Well, so it's 「鬼- - 狂-け,敬礼」See you again in 2 hours when I'm either down or done XXXD[Half an hour later]
Well, so I found out all of them but the second one... *curses whoever put the rivet exactly on that kanji*
So it's 「鬼？狂漬け,敬礼」
The second might be 式, which would mean 'style of', again. Would fit but... It doesn't really look like it.
So umm... It might be ... *is pondering if she should translate or just put the words after each other as they appear*... *decides to just put the words* XD
"Demon - style - possessed/insane - badly influenced, greetings"["In the style of the demon, insanely badly influenced, I greet you"... Possessed and influenced by the demon, greetings... Gosh that's so hot... xD]
Ahh well... So much to trying an analize （‐＾▽＾‐） I'll go and paste a few more pictures of the sensitive master here.
I'll paste this here, because I like his demonic look in it. And the glasses. Reminds me of Marble Hell Vision. (⌒￢⌒*)
And here, with the crows. So angelic indeed. Hee~ 「暗天使」
And this one, because it's simply beautiful. I had others of that shoot, but not this one... not this one with that expression in his eyes.
And this, love his expression there, too. 夢想
And here, he's just... beautiful. V_V
Haha. Wow. So I never thought I'd spend hours today with posting about Ruki and trying to find out what those writings mean. *laughs* But it's all good. He deserves more than just one blog post anyway. ＊キッス＊ 流鬼偉材さん
