Comic Site Rant: Singin’ A Happy Happy Song

Original Post

Even though I’ve always made a point of doing a Christmas-themed comic every year, I don’t believe I’ve ever done one to bring in the new year. Well, there’s a first time for everything. I was going to do another new years comic along with this one featuring the main characters, but it’s far too late now, and that script kind of sucked anyways. I really like the art here, and I also think the jokes are pretty good. There should be a gag for everyone, even for those poor souls who sat through all of Dragonaut -The Resonance-… like me.

In other site news, I’ve been doing a 2008 anime retrospective on the blog. It’s about three posts in, and I reckon I have another five to go. If the planets align properly, then I’ll have another post out tonight. Look out for it!

It is at this point that I would talk about C75, but I feel like a dick talking about doujinshi I’m stealing. If I manage to swing C76 then I’ll do a proper rundown. Lots of Tora Dora! this time around, though. Where’s the Strike Witches and Kojika love? At least we’re finally getting some decent Nagi books. Sanzenin Nagi, that is. Not the slut from Kannagi.

Since we’re between seasons (actually, the winter season is just starting up, but whatever) I’ll talk about video games instead of anime. The only game I’ve really been playing is Gundam Musou (or Dynasty Warriors: Gundam.) The gameplay is still very lazy, but it manages to be lots of fun regardless. What really makes the game shine is its writing. I’ve said this before, but I love the idea of all the characters from the different Gundam universes coming together into one epic adventure. It’s not as well written as, say, Giant Robo–but the exchanges between the characters are great. The game has also piqued my interest in some Gundam shows I haven’t yet gotten around to seeing. I know people get on its case, but after playing Judau’s Official route, and working through Puru’s Original route really makes me want to see ZZ Gundam. How can you go wrong with Purupurupuru?

Anyway, that’s all for this week. My backlog has gotten less epic in the last week, but it’s still somewhat intimidating. I’m going to try to make a pretty big dent in it later on today. Until next time!

    fucking awesome post, fucking awesome sanzenin nagi. Personally, I’m excited about a potential toradora doujin flood since I was experiencing a harsh-ass drought. And yay, more Nagi! FUCK YES!!!

    I’ll have you know that the past 9 months of my life were running just fine RIGHT UP UNTIL SOMEONE REMINDED ME THAT DRAGONAUT WAS CREATED!

    The best part of Gundam Musou is the cutscene where Domon tries to use the God Finger on ZZ’s head then realizes that it has a Hyper Mega CAnnon.

    Hahaha….oh my god I have no idea why I was laughing so hard when I saw this…it sounded a lot like whenever I talk with friends about a show and I make a sarcastic joke or two, so maybe that’s why it rung so well, but man…

    Funny that I haven’t seen Double Zeta either yet Puru (or at least Puru 2) made me want to see it…

    In any case, Gundam Musuo 2 is either almost out or it is in Japan (can’t remember), but all I know is although it has Char’s Counterattack (good…), it also seemed to skip Seed and went straight for Destiny (oh god help us…).

    you want to get gundam VS gundam then, shit is like gundam musou except actually has good gameplay. hope u got psp.

  6. Admiral Muffin says:

    Well if you’re gonna see ZZ then be prepared to survive the 1st half of the series, especially those god awful Moon Moon episodes. The 2nd half is pure awesomeness after that. And awesome comic btw. I like the part with Hayate and Gundam.

    Hey WildArms if you like the writing in crossover mechas why don’t you try the super robot games? I think inteligent cube and gundam musou have een the only games you’ve been playing for months now, ad well, for every anime I watch I play like 10 videogames >.>

    Also, who is the guy in the last panel, you drew him almost perfectly but the eyes make him look weird O_o

    Sanzenin Nagi-ojo-sama FTW!!

    ^^Besides the fact that none of them have been translated into English besides the Orginial series? (I know I’m not Wildarms, but that is a notable hang up. The games are still awesome, even if you don’t get a lick of what’s going on.)

    Doesn’t stop me from playing it :P

    I played a few. I used guides to know what to do but its still confusing as hell. I hear Super Robot Wars Z for the PS2 made SEED Destiny more awesome than the anime.

    @Marco: Someone recently released a translated ISO of SRW Alpha Gaiden. No idea on any of the others.

    It is true, and Z system is pretty easy to grasp by trial and error, it is also an easy game so you might wanna dive in right away :D

    I know, I wanna play that right after I beat the brutal OGG

    In appreciation for the new year, here’s a megaupload liknk I got on /m/ for a MSG Zeta doujin

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KQ89OKUU

    Enjoy fapping in the new year.

    Also, GUNDAM IKIMASU! (Let’s hope we get something good for the 30’th anniversary)

    ZZ Gundam is definitely worth watching. It has a lot of silly moments in the beginning, and you may find yourself shouting at the screen (What the fuck? He was a killer pilot in Zeta, and now he lives on a fucking junk planet! The hell?), but by the end, you’ll be very glad you watched the series.
