Comic Site Rant: hoshi no pendanto

Original Post

I bitched about Aoi House a long while back. I think I complained about how it was unrealistic portrayal of anime fans, or some shit like that. Well, I am a fucking hypocrite. I mean, at first Tina looked kinda dumpy, which would be normal for any anime fan. Now look at her. My logic was, if she’s wish-fulfillment, I might as well fulfill some wishes. So after a while I started dolling her up. Played with various looks and styles, until she became the ultimate moe-machine, at least in my eyes. Of course, I have many different kinds of ideas of moe (most of which involve girls being under the age of 13…) Tina’s look appeals to the moe in me that likes girls like Mikuru (or maybe I’m just getting thrown off by the chest) and her personality is very much one of a girl who I would like to have by my side. Well, I guess she could stand to have more of Konata-ness to her. This however depresses me. My shameless wish-fulfillment robs me of any artistic integrity I may have had. It’s shameless, and I hate myself for it. Despite that though, the penis wins this battle, and I’ll continue to make Tina as unrealistic as possible! Huzzah! Actually, please share with me your thoughts on my shameless wish-fulfillment in the comments section. I’d like to hear what you guys think.

Now to the actual comic. I think everything came out pretty well. I had hard time nailing the Zetsubou Sensei style, but I got it in the end. I hope my utter copying of the screencaps counts as fair use, since they’re in the context of a parody.

There is a new podcast. It’s Otakon chatter, which I finally got around to editing. I’m not as good as Patrick Macias when it comes to this kind of thing, but I think it turned out pretty good. This is the final podcast of SEASON 1. The reason I’m closing this one off is because while there are good episodes, it’s kind of a low qualtiy production all around. It was a good way for me to learn the ropes of podcasting, and I hope to apply those lessons in the new podcast, Mistakes of Youth: BEYOND THE TIME. Look out for it~

I would write more, but I don’t fucking feel like it. As you can tell from the lack of updates on the blog, school has been kicking my fucking ass. I’m going to try to see if I can drop one class to make it kick my ass less. Three studio classes are just too much…

Anyway, until next time~
