** Not just fantasy. A NORMAL Soap Opera about daily lives. Suddenly they introduced a baby, with third eye, and a psychic power. Yes, you do read it as Daily Lives Soap Opera. The director might be a fan of DragonBall. Another recent one has one of the character summon a [[BlowYouAway windstorm]] whenever said person walks. Its a Soap Opera with tons of praying scene, about normal daily lives.

The ancient history of Indonesia, before the Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms started to crop up in the 4th century AD, is ShroudedInMyth. Most of the current inhabitants of the country speak languages that are part of the Austronesian language family, whose homeland is speculated to be Taiwan, where the languages exhibit diversity the most, but how they spread their language to the archipelago (and for that matter, everywhere but Taiwan) is a matter of contention. It's unlikely that all 386 million+ Austronesian speakers are descended from the same common ancestors who lived in Taiwan five millennia ago, the earliest time evidence of emigration is attested (and the Taiwanese aborigines aren't exactly known for a large population, Taiwan being a mountainous island the size of Maryland). The current consensus is that the Austronesians who emigrated and settled in non-Taiwan lands were few, but they had a tremendous impact by acculturating the locals.

!History

!!Early History

The history of ancient Indonesia is still uncertain due to a scarcity of historical evidences, though what is known is that the Austronesian people began migrating to the archipelago ''en masse'' from Taiwan around [[OlderThanDirt 5000-2500 BC]], displacing the dark-skinned natives who were pushed eastward to what is now New Guinea and its surrounding islands, now termed as "Melanesia" ("black islands"). The Austronesian people were famously maritime, being the only ancient people who expanded their territories into ''three'' continents and definitely had the farthest-reaching settlement before the European expansion; they conquered lands as eastward (westward?) as Easter Island and as westward as Madagascar. In the case of Madagascar, Indonesians certainly had the biggest hand in populating the island, as the language of that country, Malagasy, is related the closest to the Dayak languages in Southern Borneo; to this day, both the flags of Indonesia and Madagascar contain red and white colors, which are seen as reflecting this shared identity.

The indigenous faiths of the people are not known in their purest sense as the archipelago, with the exception of the eastern part, were already influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism since [[OlderThanFeudalism 300 AD]] with the existence of the Kutai Kingdom in Eastern Borneo and Tarumanagara Kingdom in Western Java. Hinduism and Buddhism, both dharmic religions, coexisted together, sometimes with peace, sometimes with hatred; this can be seen with the Buddhist Borodubur and Hindu Prambanan temples located not far away from each other. Major kingdoms existing include Mataram, who ruled from their Central Javan heartland before their sudden relocation to Eastern Java (possibly due to the eruption of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Merapi Mount Merapi]], basically Indonesia's answer to Vesuvius). There was also Srivijaya, a Buddhist kingdom centered on Sumatra (specifically, in Indonesia's oldest city, Palembang) and became the first to unite multiple islands together, including Peninsular Malaya. It was a major center for Buddhist culture, and it frequently exchanged students with China and India, the latter back when Buddhism was still popular there.

!!Golden Age - Hindu Kingdom/Empire

Indonesia's golden age, however, began with Singhasari Kingdom, founded by the ambitious and cunning Ken Arok, ex-bodyguard of Tunggul Ametung of Tumapel, all because he wanted his wife, Ken Dedes, rumored to give birth to great kings. Through trickery and {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry, he killed Ametung with an enchanted kris knife (and Dedes approved because Ametung married her by force and kidnapping), changed Ametung's kingdom from Tumapel to Singhasari, and started his conquest of neighboring kingdoms. Sadly, his life was cut short due to the kris knife he used to kill Ametung being cursed by its creator Mpu Gandring to invoke a CycleOfRevenge, as Arok killed him out of impatience before he could bless it to protect it from evil spirits. The kris knife was used by Ametung's son Anusapati (already in Dedes' womb when Arok killed Ametung) to kill Arok. In return, Arok's son Panji Tohjaya later killed Anusapati with the same knife and then took over the throne. Anusapati's son and Ken Arok's grandchild, Ranggawuni and Mahisa Campaka, eventually rebelled and took down Tohjaya, and then ensured that the curse of Mpu Gandring ended that day, by having no more killing done with the kris knife.

Ranggawuni's successor Kertanagara continued to expand Singhasari's borders, and even humiliated the Mongols under Kublai Khan by refusing their demands of submission. The Mongols prepared from an assault, but around that time, a coup d'etat occured by Kediri's Duke Jayakatwang, costing Kertanegara's life. Thankfully, his son-in-law Raden Wijaya, survived. Raden Wijaya then used the Mongol's coming to take down Jayakatwang, and once Jayakatwang was down, Raden Wijaya drove off the Mongols away from Singhasari. Once he took the throne, he changed the name Singhasari to Majapahit, also changing it into an empire.

Regardless of the squabbles above, the Austronesians were known universally as a great maritime people, having the largest expanse of language spread

In the case of Regarding Madagascar, Indonesians certainly had the biggest hand in populating Malagasy people (particularly the island, as Merina and Sihanaka tribes of the language central highlands) are descended from Bornean immigrants of that country, Malagasy, is related the closest to the Dayak languages in Southern Borneo; to this day, both the flags of Indonesia and Madagascar contain early 1st millennium AD.

The 7th century saw the eruption rise of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Merapi Mount Merapi]], basically Indonesia's answer to Vesuvius). There was also Srivijaya, a Buddhist kingdom centered on Sumatra (specifically, in Indonesia's oldest city, Palembang) Malay empire who managed to wrest control of all of Sumatra, Java, and became the Asian mainland up to the Kra Isthmus, becoming the first Indonesian polity to unite multiple islands together, including Peninsular Malaya.

Indonesia's
Javanese Mataram rising to challenge the Srivijaya's hegemony. The Mataram period was when the Hindu-Buddhist temples of Java, including the Buddhist Borobudur and Hindu Prambanan, were built. The temples suggest that an acculturation of the two foreign religions was adhered. Mataram and its successors, Kahuripan and Kediri, continued to wage wars against Srivijaya, but they remained stuck in Java until the last Kediri king, Kertajaya was forced to abdicate to Ken Arok in 1222, beginning the golden age, however, began with age of the archipelago.

!!Muslim Era - Invasion of European Foreigners (mostly Dutch East Indies)

With Majapahit weakened, the archipelago began to shift from warring states into a more trade and tolerance-based approach, and at this point, the Muslim religion began to rise along with the sultanates of Mataram, Demak, Banten, etc. Wars still occured here and there, but they're less massive than those happening during the Hindu era. Of course, at this point, Indonesia's natural production of spices made it known to the Europeans, who dubbed it the 'Spice Islands'. Nations like Portugal, England and eventually the Netherlands, came to pay visit at first, but they eventually decided that Indonesia was too much of a valuable region with their spices and and wanted to colonize the archipelago.

With Majapahit weakened, the archipelago began to shift from warring states into a more trade and tolerance-based approach, and at this point, the Muslim religion began to rise along rise. Islam actually had presence for quite a while - Muslim burial practices were known in the 11th century - but the first extensive, and indigenous, presence appeared in the 13th century with the sultanates rise of Mataram, Demak, Pasai in Aceh. In the centuries after, Muslim communities were established along the coast and created kingdoms from the vestiges of the former Hindu-Buddhist ones, including Aceh and Malacca in Sumatra; Banten, etc. Demak, and Mataram in Java; Pontianak and Banjar in Borneo; Ternate and Tidore in Maluku; and Gowa and Bone in Sulawesi. Islam took root slowly because it was spread mainly through trade, instead of organized proselytization; while Sumatra was quite easily converted by the 15th century, Java's Islamization was complete only in the 18th century, when the last Hindu kingdom of Blambangan fell to Dutch intervention. Most of eastern Indonesia accepted Islam only in some places, while New Guinea was outright not touched (although contact with Ternate was documented).

Wars still occured occurred here and there, but they're less massive than those happening during the Hindu Hindu-Buddhist era.

Racing simulations (such as ''Manga/InitialD'') or shooters (such as ''VideoGame/TimeCrisis'') are more common, though. And you'll mostly find the fighter machines in theaters, rather than concentrated in one place.
