ラクガキ、がっちびくん

“Gatchibi-kun” sketch by Banjyaku (ばんじゃく)

The term “Gatchibi” (がっちび) is adorable - a portmanteau of gatchiri (がっちり), meaning “muscular,” and chibi (ちび) or “little” (in a cute way). A short burly dude, what could be better?

I had a super fun time at the gay party Grab in Tokyo, which bills itself as a “chibi/gatchibi/chibidebu” event (the awesome final term in that trifecta, ちびでぶ, means short and chubby). Grab has discounted admission for men under 165cm and an even cheaper rate for those below 155cm. Blessed are the gatchibi, for the short shall inherit the earth!

第3稿。昨日登場人物を書き出したら、この体型がいない事に気付いて、主役をこんなにしてみた。当初はガッチビ予定で過去1番小さい健介よりも小柄にしようとしてたんだけど。このぐらいの方がいいのかなぁ。

Sketch from the blog of Seizoh Ebisubashi (戎橋 政造)

Loose translation: “Third Draft. Yesterday, I began to write out this character and became aware that he wouldn't have this body type. Initially my plan was to make a Gatchibi character, smaller than Kensuke [titular star of Ebisubashi’s Kensuke the Fish Dealer (魚屋健介), 2008]. I wonder if something like this is better.”

Gatchibi (ガッチビ) is a gay term that means “short statured men of good physique who stand firm."
