It’s been a while! How are youu? I miss everyone in the band, in the fandom, A LOT! Really!
It’s already second week of January, but still, HELLO 2015! May this year be a blessing for us 😉
when I said I miss everyone in the band, seriously guys, I MISSED THEM for like 3 months?? Or even more?? no longer keep up with them, their updates… okay, some people still tried to let me know whenever something happened and I DID check their instagram accounts sometimes but NO. I used to do more than just checking official site, official Facebook page, official Twitter, and their IG accounts. I used to look up Twitter, Facebook fanpages, Weibos, 2ch, Mixis, Ameblos… whatever lol. Recently I have less time for that 😦
Today I decided to check Twitter and looked for Tomoya-related tweets… and found this
When I was checking the blog after a while, there were some mysterious words that Tomoya used and I was so curious of their meaning. pic.twitter.com/QmMMQDhE9Y

One thing drew my attention from the list of mysterious (or unknown) words Tomoya used more on the blog
Yes, Ginus (ギヌス) or here we can find it as Longinus (ロンギヌス) and Bonus (ボヌス).
Everyone ever wondered what those words were supposed to mean?
Let’s see where Tomoya uses the words on blog entries.
Below is from one entry published on Oct 22nd 2009 with title “Sendai → Aomori”
Then I had long-sought beef tongue!
That was… godly!
The second one…
Then, talking about the cold weather these days, how is it.
I think it’s already too much.
I want kotatsu.
I want to eat mikan.
Still, about bonus in the other entry
And, it was midnight, 1.30 am.
Because it was bonus/ awful to have an empty stomach, we had ramen on break.
Toruge, he was drinking eh.
The last one is about Ginus/Longinus
Its bright color is appetizing.
Also its texture,
There I put some of the greatest ever man-invented seasoning called mayo
When I looked up on Google (try to put “ボヌス tomoya oneokrock” on Google), I found some fans were also wondering about the meaning of it (bonus)
Now let me tell you one thing. Maybe there’s some people who already knew about it, but for people who haven’t known, Tomoya got a *secret* private Twitter account that he used to connect to his friends and siblings and this account was active around 2010-2012. There I found the meaning of Ginus and Bonus from his conversation with his friend (oyeah, I stalked much, sorry not sorry) Anna.
@anna : So you made it up! LOL! Let’s use it (=´∀｀)人(´∀｀=) RT @tomoya’sacc : Bonus is when you feel like, “Haah… the worst/awful…”. While Ginus is when you feel like, “Wow! The best!” I made them up LOL
So ginus means “awesome” or “amazing” while bonus means “awful” or “terrible“.
How about longinus then? I guess it’s superlative form of ginus, like long+ginus=longinus = really amazing, the best, the greatest. Hahaha~ Tomoya is not only our drum master, heavy smoker and manga-worm (?), he’s also our slang word maker!
Still, there are words like punsu which meaning I haven’t known. (゜_゜)
Wonder if I would find it someday, or he would reveal himself the other meaning of those words he’s made so we House Kanki could make him one “Tomoya Dictionary” or “Tomoya Code”. Hahaha
