Ninja Shingo by JohnSu Ninja Shingo by JohnSu
Shingo is a waitress at a Ninja Cafe in dreamland; it is an establishment that caters to the unconscious otaku. She is not actually a ninja. The same applies to all of her coworkers (except for two, who really are ninjas, but nobody knows about it).

In this scene, Shingo is getting ready to go home, as the sun is rising and her shift is ending. She commutes by Amano fish.

Tenchou (her boss) is pleading with her to stay a little longer because it's just about time for the college students to be going to sleep and she is popular with that demographic.

Papaya (the chef/baker) wants her to take some oily bread with her because it's about to go bad and he'd rather give spoiling food to his coworkers than throw it away. A true gentleman.

Daimonji (the bouncer) is an enigma. He's trying to say something, but nobody can quite understand him. It could be poetry, or it could be profanity. Or it could be both.

So, why did I draw this?

While listening to some chiptunes on Youtube, I saw this in the related videos and was like

"Whoah, what is that?"

Turns out it wasn't actually anything in particular, but it at least made for an interesting could be picture, so I DID IT, and it was FUN.

Incidentally, do any of you artists out there know the term for extracting a picture from a thing by looking at it even though the picture wasn't really supposed to be there? I can't figure out the Google search terms for this. (EDIT: the best suggestion so far has been "Pareidolia;" not exactly the thing I was trying to describe, but close enough!)

I do that "Thing" all the time! I tried pointing out the dragon in the ceiling tile at home and I just get funny looks.

Nice to know it's a thing and not just me going bonkers!:iconnotaloneplz:

Very beautiful work by the way. :)

I was going to point out that it looks pretty much exactly like the album-cover at first glance but then I realized that was your intention all along.
You cunning rascal.

I love that you take indistinct shapes you glimpsed somewhere random, and turn it into something distinctly random. With a backstory that makes little sense, yet it's entertaining.

That's one of my favorite albums. Pretty much anything from Hydeout productions is. Great take on the cover.

Ninja Shingo rhymes with Shiina Ringo who looks just like I-No from Guilty Gear.

THEY MUST BE RELATED SOMEHOW.
