Just a dude who like both Japanese and western pop cultures like tokusatsu, anime, manga, light novel, comic, tv series, and of course collecting (and taking picture of) action figures.

Made this 4koma that perhaps many of us have experienced. More than once too, maybe.

"Aku ra popo" is local Indonesian meme, derived from Javanese language (Java is one of many tribes in Indonesia), literally means "I’m fine" or "I’m okay".

This meme is mostly used as reaction image with a person bitterly smile or holding his/her tears, trying to be strong accepting the harsh reality/situation even though he/she is pretty much broken inside.

Like this for example.

Translation:
In front of my very eyes, the girl I liked saying yes when my best friend proposes to her. I'm fine.

And these are some more reaction image examples.
