Yuuki Aoi Draws a Bee on Her Hand

As Yuuki Aoi gradually becomes more natural in public, we get to see what she's really like: a bit childish, a bit boyish, a bit otaku, a bit pushy, a bit weird.

In her latest post she shows us the bee -- she realizes it looks more like a wasp -- that she drew on her hand with a ball pen (click images to enlarge).

Wonderful drawing, isn't it? She took the photo on the subway. We also see the massive plastic watch (?) she apparently wears.

She says in her blog that she thought the drawing would just come off in the bath, but had to scrub at it for fifteen minutes to remove it.

In her last post, she went on at great length about Pokemon and various pokemons. She herself bought some Pokemon file folders (featuring Rankurusu and Shandora, she says) at Pokemon Centre, which is near the studio where she and Hayami Saori do their radio show. She calls herself a "fan" of Pokemon in all its guises: animes and games.

Here are some new images that have shown up in her 2channel thread: first, this month's "Aoi's ABC's," featuring "i is for ichigo" (ichigo means "strawberry"). She says all her favorite foods are red: tomatoes, watermelon, and strawberries.

Hey, Yuuki, loan me your bat for a second. I hate these sorts of "fans".... especially the "pure pure" basket cases.

@Vexx -- This is the least of it. Her 2channel thread is peppered with salacious lines about doing this or that to her. I mentioned the thing about makeup because I really couldn't see it at all -- and because I remember it from various other seiyuu threads. The contradiction between the two points of view is amazing. Are they the same people? I don't know. "Notes toward an understanding of the Japanese seiyuu-otaku mind."

Her favorite foods are all red? Then she's basically the opposite of Chiyo's dad from Azumanga Daioh.
