You Are Here

Mistakes of Youth is where it always is.

Nonstop to Tokyo is my new art site.

Analog Housou is where I blog.

And Yellow Vacation is where I post random junk.

This blog is an archive. An archive of my… MISTAKES OF YOUTH.

Comic Update: Tokyo, Mon Amour

Original Post

At long last, the end of Mistakes of Youth… part 1. The reason why I’m arbitrarily drawing a line here is because I’m going to be changing the entire Mistakes of Youth site over to WordPress soon. This will happen once I finish the next comic, which may not be for a while since I’ll be changing residences again pretty soon. But look out for it! All the comics up until now will be moved to a different location, probably http://old.mistakesofyouth.com.

I’m also starting a new WordPress based site for all my artwork, which means all updates on this blog will come to an end. But don’t worry! I’ll still keep it up as an archive, if you really want to read the chronicles of my misspent youth.

Comic Update: 金曜日の天使

Original Post

Was surprised that so many people liked the last comic. Well sorry guys! I’M GONNA RUN THIS SHIT INTO THE GROUND.

(Don’t worry, there’s only one left…)

Comic Update: Un nouveau son stereophonique extraordinaire!

Original Post

Anno living in Rets’ house has been a subject of past comics (done so long ago I don’t feel like looking for them, and I doubt anyone remembers) so I figured I’d just… do something about that. There are going to be two comics after this one, so it’ll be a good way to kill time during the slow winter season, I guess. I’ve had this idea on my mind for a while, but only got around to doing it now.

Comic Update: It’s the most beautiful ugly sound in the world

Original Post

Late to the party with this one, and the joke is incredibly obvious, but I feel if you’re the only anime webcomic on the net, being late and obvious is a luxury–no competition! But yeah, if you’ve seen Madoka Magica, you know what this is all about.

As far as the art goes, I think panel 1 is the best even if the angle and the pseudo-fish eye lens is kind of BS. I did panel 2 last so it looks the worst–Rets has a giant jaw, and Tina also has something of a man jaw. Panel 3 is alright, but Tina’s face is kind of too long. I think I nailed Rets’ expression well, though.

Not much else to say except that I started a Tumblr a little while ago. For the time being I’ll just be posting all the various SHAFT and Shinbo related things I have on my PC. Scans, screencaps, photographs, videos, songs, whatever, it’ll be up there. I may expand out, but for now it’ll be a SHAFTXSHINBO Tumblr.

Comic Update: Lazy Sunday

Original Post

This joke is newspaper funny pages quality, and I didn’t feel like being too inventive with the art. But you know, each time I watch something related to To Aru Majutsu no Index, I have to say something.

Comic Update: Looking Death in the Face

Original Post

I’m sure OreImo has already passed out the collective anime fan consciousness, but I wrote this while the show was airing, and wanted to use it at some point, so here we are. I guess if you remain a fan for a long-ish period of time, you begin to realize that you aren’t getting any younger, and OreImo cuts deep with its 14-year-old heroines speaking like hardened vets. You just… don’t want to see them like that!

I would have made Tina look older beyond adding small bags under her eyes, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it!

Comic Update: The Very First… Mistakes of Youth Guest Comic!!

Original Post

At long last, the first Mistakes of Youth guest comic! This comes to me by way of Twitter follower @RatixL. Thanks for the comic, really appreciate it! I was going to save this for a bit later, but I’ve had a bit of trouble getting things back up to speed, so I figured I’d use this to fill in for a week. It’s a lot better than anything I’ve ever done, that’s for sure!

Aside from that, we’re posting up a storm down at Analog Housou. Me, bonertown, and Seiya have all been weighing in on the new season, and have been updating daily for the past four days. Check it out!

That’ll be all for this week. See y’all later!

Comic Update: Welcome To My World

Original Post

Sorry for the delay! I meant to have this up yesterday, but I forgot. There’s not much to say about this comic, so I’ll just leave it at that!

In some random site news, the old blog is now closed down (save for posting up comic updates like these), and a new blog has opened: Analog Housou! Take a look around, it’s a fine place.

That’s all for today, later!
