Comic Site Rant: ケロ⑨destiny

Original Post

At one point I decided I was going to make a determined effort to make comics about all the shows I care about this season, and as such I decided I’d move from Strike Witches to my second favourite of the season, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu (while throwing in a Kanokon joke on the side.) This felt funny when I wrote it, but I’m not sure now. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been working on this script for so long that it’s become boring to me, but generally I feel it could have been better. Maybe if I got rid of the last speech bubble– I dunno. I mostly like how the art came out here. The background for panel one is kind of weird, but it works. I’m happy with all of the character art, and have few complaints on that front.

It seems people want to meet up at Otakon, so a meet up will be happening. I won’t schedule anything concrete at this point given the convention schedule isn’t up yet, but chances are most times will be ok since all the panels suck, and the only real event worth going to is the JAM Project concert. For now, I’m planning something on Friday at around mid-day. We’d meet up someplace for a bit, then run down to the Dealer’s Room to buy shit or something. It’ll be fly.

After a long hiatus, the Mistakes of Youth podcast is BACK with a new episode all about Kure-nai. Unlike the last podcast, which was kind of random, this one will mostly focus on in depth, spoilerific discussions of anime. The aim is to provide intelligent discussions on shows– the kind of thing you may be interested in listening to after you finished a series. This first episode isn’t the best since I wasn’t really in top form, but Omo and Link are great so listen to it for them. Expect two new episodes each month.

Like I said earlier, Strike Witches and Nogizaka Haruka are my favourites of the season so far. Strike Witches is just great because of the high moe factor and all of the fanservice. I could care less about the story, but the girls are all very cute, both in personalities and looks, and I love seeing their tight butts and cute crotches every couple of seconds. This is true man’s anime. Nogizaka Haruka also has a high moe factor, but this time in the form of a very cute otaku girlfriend voiced by Teh Mamiko. With this one, I’m mostly watching it for the developing romance between Haruka and Yuuto, and I also like seeing a cute moe girl doing otaku things. It warms my cold, jaded heart right up! I even made a crappy wallpaper for the show!

On the other hand, one show which I was really liking for a bit has gotten way too stupid, and that show is Code Geass R2. In the first Code Geass, I could brush off the stupid and laugh at it, but the amount of stupid in this latest season is overwhelming. It’s still entertaining, but when I start laughing at like… character deaths, that’s not good. Though, I will admit to honestly liking the Geass origin story, but that was balanced out by stupid shit like Lulu’s exploding mirrors and Viletta and Ohgi’s soap opera moment.

Anyways, I should cut off here since I still have a huge backlog of anime to get through, so I’m going to try and burn through at least half of that now. Later!

    it wasn’t funny for me because I’d already read the same comments both on MT and here on your blog where you cracked the same damn joke. Plus Haruka is ass.

  2. Annubis says:

    What ??? How could you not like the “count up to 20, body disposing” CC =P
    Anime moe at its finest.

  3. digitalboy I know it’s not your fault that you like dudes but keep that talk off my blog please

    >>wildarms

    Well said

  5. I agree with db’s comment on my comic I’m just calling him a fag because he doesnt like Nogizaka Haruka

  6. Andrew F. says:

    If they continue the trend from previous years, Otakon will post their schedule like two days before the con starts and then make it useless by rescheduling half of the events during the con.

    Agreed on the general suckage of panels this year. I was looking forward to seeing “Your Favorite Anime Sucks” again but it looks like they got tired of mocking anime and switched to video game characters. No cute female seiyuu this year either.

    I fucking love strike witches man and it gets worse every day. So many cute young girls to choose from, oh the agony and the ecstasy! Well, this show really has a lot to cater to a guy like me. First off its all the delicious cast. I think I’m going to have to do write up on how attractive each member is, and have rate each one for molestationings. Secondly, frighteningly, I love ww2 era weapons. Some of the neatest and most historical pieces of firepower are being toted by tiny girls! Not tiny intermediate cartridges(like in m16s and AK-47s) but full house 8mm mauser, .30-06, and .303 British in a decent range of classic machine guns! And lastly, its retro! I love alternate history stuffs like this. If it were steampunk too, I’d wet myself. Sorry, wildarms, I just felt the need to share. I loved this comic too. He was a spineless little bastard, wasn’t he? Nevertheless, I gotta redownload all the eps because of the extra nudity the dvd versions have…

  8. Ryan says:

    Awesome! A MoY meet-up at Otakon makes Otakon better. I’ll listen to the podcast later, and I found the comic funny (not as funny as the last one though.)

  9. 3x as random says:

    Hmm, that may be a problem.

    Kallen actually said “I wont tell you where Lulu is” but Suzaku was an idiot so he didnt notice.

    Watched Eva on the big screen wwwwwwww.

    you’re one to talk, Mr. Pedobear.

  11. Defectron says:

    I like how in one episode of R2, Suzaku and some of the knights are looking at a picture of lulouch and C.C whose standing next to him with a bag over her head, and they aren’t at least a little suspicious that this girl with similar hair to the one their looking for whose hiding her face happens to be standing next to lulouch.

    Your webcomic is not funny. But your outlook reminds me 4chan in some ways, so I’m following it right now because its hard to lurk /a/ for /a/’s opinion on anime when 4chan is down.

  13. >>Your webcomic is not funny.

    Yeah I gotta work on that.

    also I don’t read 4chan so I don’t see why you’d read this

  14. ErisTic says:

    Haruka is just so moe it hurts. That and Sekirei are my top two of this season. As for Code Geass, I’ve watched the first season to see what all the fuss is about, but that terrible deus ex machina in episode 22 just ruined it for me. There were a hundred ways they could have written that better than having the Geass go out of control at one particular moment.

  15. Too old for this shit says:

    Not a bad comic, but it lacks the RAGE that makes your work funny.

    Bitching about how the new younger crowd of fans is the cancer killing anime is what I’m mostly here for (and the occasional nostalgia factor)

    I wonder if they ever put Gal Force onto DVD

  16. moonspeaker says:

    Just want to say, Nogizaka Haruka is awesome.

    That stunt at the end of episode 3 was totally random but amazingly cool too…

  17. >>Not a bad comic, but it lacks the RAGE that makes your work funny.

    I guess you’ll like the next comic then

  18. Teuvan says:

    …But stupidity is what makes Code Geass awesome. When you strip away all the things that no self-respecting anime, say Monster for example, would feature, there’s not much left. Without exploding mirrors, wall-running, and ridiculous plot devices, the series wouldn’t be nearly as fun.

  19. Healthy says:

    Tina’s breasts are getting better and better

  20. cerevox says:

    Just poping in to comment that every comic, tina seems to get hotter. In this one she is practically fapable to. I give this trend my full approval, keep it up!!

  21. cerevox says:

    Yes, i am aware of the 18+ section. However, i think tina is hotter in this comic then in most of those 18+ drawings, which is odd, since she is wearing clothes in this one. Regardless, she is hot, but getting hotter.

  22. mako says:

    Whew, glad I decided not to watch Kanokon. For the record, I loled.

    I am turning this into a copypasta now.

    I love how Anonymus loves to visit here despite “her/his” dislike for this comic, goes to show you “his/her” crappy life.
