Comic Site Rant: The Comiket of Despair

Original Post

First comic of ’08! It looks kind of bad! It’s not totally horrible, but it’s not totally good, either. I do like Tina’s yandere face in panel 4, though. After reading this comic over and over, I realized that it’s actually just this comic + this comic. Oops. This comic plays up the slowly developing insanity in Tina. Normally she’s a cheerful fangirl with pretty well rounded opinions on things, but if you hung around Rets as much as she does, certainly you’d have instances where you’d crack. Rets, however, is smarter than he looks, and knows how the right time to exit. He should thank his lucky stars he’s not dead on the floor. Yet.

The severe lack of Nagi doujins out of C73 is a problem, though. I let last Comiket off since the show was just beginning, so naturally I assumed there wouldn’t be a good turn out. But now the show is almost over, we are lacking in high quality Nagi porn! What is with the fixation on Hinagiku, huh? Tell me, Japan! Actually, I’m sure Japan would tell me to stop whining and just go over there to buy the things myself. Which I would like to do. Eventually. I may do a comic around that idea for next week, but it’s not really fully planned out, yet. In any case, I am in despair. To console myself I’m downloading older Hayate doujins, hoping they will be of Nagi. It’s fine, but I want stuff that’s FRESH. FRESH, NEW AND WELL DRAWN. Sigh. Comiket, I will take you on. One of these days.

New season has started, and as usual, I’m not watching the first episode of everything like every other blogger. I am a discerning individual, and can tell just from promotional art whether or not a show will be for me or not. My judgment has rarely done me wrong, so I’m fine with not watching everything. I have watched some things though, those two things being Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Rosario + Vampire. I won’t say much here, since I’m reserving my thoughts for a blog post that may or may not happen. I will say that SZS 2 is more of the same except with better animation and the style may be a bit more off-beat and wacky. Rosario + Vampire is a stupid fanservice show, but provided Gonzo doesn’t fuck up the animation, I could watch that for 13 episodes. As of right now currently looking forward to subs of Minami-ke ~okawari~, Gunslinger Girl 2, and the end of Sky Girls (I need to finish my year in review, dammit!)

Before I take off, I’d like to mention a few things. The comic has gotten some press again, this time in the form of the Anime Genesis Podcast, and Aarin’s Blog. Anime Gen declares me webcomic of the year, and Aarin gave me a fairly well thought out and honest review. Thanks to both of them.

That’s it for this week. I head back to school next week, but I’ll try to push out another comic before then. Later!

    Share, share, share with me please.

    >>I’m starting to like yandere!Tina quite a bit.

    She may or may not show up every now and again. Rets just has to hit the right nerve.

  4. I actually already have that one, though not in English, so thanks

    Tina became likeable!

    This should be it

    http://www.megaupload.com/de/?d=z86yejq3

    If it’s not the translated one, I guess I could upload.

  7. Ah, thanks. Though, I already found that one earlier this morning.

    Chances are I have all the doujins that have been scanned. I own one physical Nagi doujin, but that’s it. I need to track down more. It’s hard to find decently drawn ones.

  8. Blacques says:

    is there a good place to buy loli doujins online?

  9. Uh, Mandarake? Tora no Ana, but you need to proxy.

    Ebay? Hendane? I only really have experience with Mandarake.

  10. harakiri says:

    I love contrasts, I love crazy Tina. Great expression.

    Those Anigen Awards are quite one-sided – it’s all KyoAni related xD
    But congrats for the press.

  11. Chris says:

    ahhhh higurashi flashbacks D:

    lol. Next she’ll be laughing at the top of her lungs with pin point pupils…

  12. Blacques says:

    Mandarake actually has Papa Nanka Daikirai?!?!?

    I fucking love you, man

    Man that Aarin’s blog critic post about MoY pisses me off. That guy does not even know artistic talent what a annoying shithead, Wildarm your comics are awesome and I get all your jokes and I eagerly await your updates I have your RSS Feed and check it every day so I know you like honest criticism but I think Aarin knows he cannot draw like you can well anyways later

  14. Aarin’s a good guy. I appreciate him going out of his way to write a review and give me some pointers on how to improve. Really no reason to get angry over it :/

  15. MoY Fan says:

    Well, still I think he personally has no knowledge on how to make a website I guess his photography “school” did not teach him how to make a website or an awesome web comic for that matter. I just hate it when people criticize another persons website on how badly put together it is when there “website” or so I say blog is complete crap. Your comics are great and I don’t think he realizes the time it takes to make a comic especially on the computer. Your front page banner is something other than your name with blog after it. So thanks anyway Wildarm but I hate people that criticize your site when it’s already awesome.

    Also Aarin’s Blog is definitely not powered by spirit lol, but for criticism of other websites that are better than his.

    Tina’s face in panel 4 looks good indeed, but in panel 6… well, kinda screwed up, imo. Rets’s hands in panel 2 seem unnaturally short. Altough this one is not great, I’ve read all the previous comics and really like them. Keep up :]

    I get more of a Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni vibe.
