The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 24
Chapter 24 . Li Ruoxuanâs Melancholy
At the end of June, Ningjiang is extremely hot.
The noisy cicadas made people’s ears sore. In the Ningjiang High-tech Development Zone, a dark blue car with a new frontline media brand stopped at the door of a slightly dilapidated four-story building.
Carrying a black schoolbag, Li Ruoxuan opened the door and got out of the car. She was wearing a printed short-sleeved T-shirt, slim jeans, and sneakers. The hair on her head was simply tied into a single-sided pigtail, which looked like It’s a college student who came out of the school just now. In fact, she has just graduated a year.
In an instant, I stepped from the low temperature of the air conditioner in the car to the heat of Ningjiang outside. The roar of cicadas suddenly enveloped the new editor. Li Ruoxuan confirmed the address in the phone and looked up at the building.
“This is the company?”
Li Ruoxuan walked into the shadow of the lobby on the first floor and saw the simple logo printed on A4 paper and the four characters “phantom animation”. She was a little uneasy. If it were not because the introducer was her familiar business partner, Li Ruoxuan would want to I feel that I might be scammed and trafficked away.
Followed the guidance and walked upstairs, Li Ruoxuan finally heard a little noise.
It is the keyboard tapping sound and some kind of special sliding sound from time to time.
She poked her head out of the stairwell and saw a few tables in the center of the huge studio. At the table, a young girl was concentrating on the screen.
The young girl is wearing a wine-red dress, with her left hand on the keyboard and a pen in her right hand, drawing on the tablet. She wears earphones and looks serious, exuding a breath of ignorance.
“Is this a professional animator?”
It is the first time for Li Ruoxuan to visit an animation company. Although the other facilities here are a bit shabby, Li Ruoxuan is still a little impressed by the appearance of the girl’s painting.
She couldn’t help but leaned closer to see what the girl was painting, but when she took a closer look, Li Ruoxuan was immediately stunned.
Because the girl’s screen is not a world-famous painting, but a first-view picture with a gun in her hand. The girl flexibly manipulates the game characters to move around, turn around, and then shoot a headshot and turn the other side, just like a professional player.
This is the scene of the battlefield call. Li Ruoxuan has heard about it. She has never played, but she has seen others play. If the girl’s operation is a well-trained soldier, then the boys in the Internet cafe that Li Ruoxuan watched before are simply toddlers. .
Li Ruoxuan glanced at the number of kills of this young girl, which turned out to have exceeded fifty, and more importantly, the number of deaths was zero! !
“No, why are there people playing games in an animation company?”
Li Ruoxuan couldn’t help but yelled out, which attracted the attention of others.
“Now is the lunch break, as long as it does not affect other people, you can freely control it.”
A man with glasses next to him said that he is also equipped with a tablet and keyboard, but the latest episode of “Ningjiang Zombie 2” is playing on the computer. This Li Ruoxuan watched last night and was impressed.
“Which one are you looking for?”
A slightly hunched middle-aged man suddenly appeared behind Li Ruoxuan. He was wearing a khaki shirt, just like the cleaning uncle in the editorial department.
“Uncle, I, I am looking for your person in charge, I am here to talk about cooperation?”
Li Ruoxuan was startled, and said in a panic.
“Are you the Xueluo editor of the monthly Shonen Frontline?”
There was a voice from the other side of the desk. Li Ruoxuan looked over. It was a very young boy who was tidying up. He walked over with a document in his hand and reached out to Li Ruoxuan.
“I am Xu Rui, the person in charge of Phantom Animation, and I am glad to meet you.”
Li Ruoxuan hesitated to shook his hand with the other party. Xu Rui’s fingers were slender but somewhat rough. Li Ruoxuan was impressed by the touch of calluses rubbing. She remembered that teacher A Chuang’s hands were like this.
Maybe the people who paint are like that.
“this way please.”
Xu Rui pointed to the conference room next to him and called Shang Cheng Kewei. The three of them walked in. After a brief greeting and introduction, Li Ruoxuan took out a thick stack of documents in his schoolbag.
“These are the projects before “Soul Eater”, some sorted information, and…”
She spoke fluently, and she was a little bit distressed when she was proficient. Li Ruoxuan had already spoken these words to many animation companies before, but none of those companies had plans to take over the animation of “Soul Eater”.
Originally, these tasks should be the responsibility of colleagues in charge of copyright contact, but the “Monthly Youth Frontline” is of a special nature, and the editor who knows the content of the comics will also participate in it. At the same time, because “Soul Eater” has been sentenced by the copyright department Because of the death penalty, only Li Ruoxuan was running around here.
“Please wait, editor Xueluo, before we talk about animation, I want to ask how much you know about “Soul Eater”.”
Xu Rui reached out and held down the file Li Ruoxuan was about to open, and said.
“Uh, “Soul Eater” is the debut work of Mr. A Chuang. It is a story about demons…”
Li Ruoxuan recounted the plot roughly.
The story of “Soul Eater” is very kingly and simple. High school student Bai Jianshi has been able to see ghosts since he was a child, and sometimes uses this ability to help some souls who have been wronged. “Ze” high school girl Li Leshen learned the truth about the world from her mouth and joined the Supernatural Disaster Office of the Bureau of Natural Environment. While going to school, she was engaged in a school story about fighting spirits after school.
“Who is your most memorable character in this story?”
After hearing Li Ruoxuan’s narration, Xu Rui nodded slightly, as if testing her basic ability as a responsible editor.
“Uh, it should be the heroine Li Leshen. She is strong and confident, but she feels like a little girl in front of the hero, especially when she comes on stage with a Pocky stick. The look of stepping on Bai Ze is very handsome!”
Although Li Ruoxuan is a newcomer editor, she still carefully read every work on “Monthly Youth Frontline”, and faced Xu Rui’s questions, she did not panic at all.
“Speaking of this, do you know why the heroine Li Leshen often holds a Pocky stick?”
Xu Rui paused, then continued to ask.
“In the current plot, Li Leshen has almost never drawn a sword, but according to other people’s descriptions, she is also a master of swords. Why is this? Huangfu Xun, who appeared in the eighteenth chapter, she and Li Le What is the relationship of God like?”
Xu Rui’s series of questions made Li Ruoxuan’s face full of question marks. Although she had watched “Soul Eater” seriously, she had never thought about such problems, nor had she delved into these settings. After Xu Rui’s questioning, she only Some hindsight.
“Hey, it seems like…”
She took out the notebook. The cover of the book was decorated with beautiful tape. Li Ruoxuan turned to one of the pages. Here are the notes she made while reading “Soul Eater”.
“Teacher A Chuang said that Huangfu Xun had known Li Leshen before and had a good relationship, but he didn’t think about the specifics. The reason why he designed this character is only to show Li Leshen’s past. The plot of the past is very common in Wangdao comics.”
“So, are you curious about how this character interacted with Li Leshen in the past, and how did Li Leshen become like this?”
Xu Rui said fascinatingly, and then took out a planning book from his side.
has three words written on it.
“Soul Eater: Zero”.
