Comic Site Rant: One coin? Fuck you. Fuck you, one coin.

Original Post

I’d like to think that with this comic I’ve gone right to the heart of the issue, the issue being a general feeling of “well, this is fine” in response to the creation of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan No Yuuutsu along with Nyoron Churuya-san. They are both fun little works, and manage to do an okay job at putting my hunger for a proper second season of Suzumiya Haruhi to rest. And hey, it’s all we’ve fucking got.

I can’t say I’m terribly happy with how the lineart turned out here, but I did do something a bit different to the shading– I put a layer of blue over it to give it some colour, and there’s also a light stroke effect going around the outsides of the shades. I like the way this looks, and applied this approach to the next comic, which has already been made.

This is probably the last bit of whinging I’ll do about the doujinshi. Most of the requests have been sent over to the guy doing the printing, but some of you guys still haven’t contacted him, it seems. If you sent me a request and don’t remember getting an email back from me over the past couple of weeks, check your email boxes carefully. I think over the next week I’ll take the doujin page down, since we have enough orders at this point. Thanks for buying!

A friend of mine came over yesterday, and we partook of both BAOH and Dog Solider on the recommendation of The Anime World Order. I actually came out liking BAOH quite a bit for how fucking ridiculous and dumb it was, but I was probably just looking at the smoking hot ’80s-style loli the whole time. I guess all the melting faces were cool, too. Dog Soldier was really lame, and the only way we could get through it was by laughing at home lame it was. A podcast on both of these, along with chatter about various other titles (Akikan!) is forthcoming, so look out for it on iTunes or the blog.

That’ll be it for this week. I haven’t been in much of a writing mood lately, which is my excuse for lack of real activity on the blog, as well as the short rants as off late. I’ll get back into it eventually, don’t worry.

    It’s always good times when Tina is the one with the red text bubble! I’m with Rets on this one; give us Haruhi 2 already! Though Haruhi-chan is cute and amusing, Churuya-san more accurately sates my desire for another Kiyohiko Azuma anime.

  2. wah says:

    I should note that Tina clearly has Baoh inside of her, as she is snapping off Rets’ hand with a kung-fu grip.

  3. Marco says:

    New shading looks great should stay :P

  4. Crane says:

    Woohoo product placement! :O

    We also have Munto. Munto is why it’s being delayed.

    I’ve been waiting for Munto for six years.

    If it had been delayed ANY LONGER…

    *twitch*

    It’s good to see that this comic is now being sponsored by Coke, just like Geass was sponsored by Pizza Hut and Evangelion movie 1.0 was sponsored by Doritos at least your up there with one great show.

  7. dood says:

    Loved Tina’s reaction.
    I agree with both of them: we need a second season but we should enjoy what we have (for now…)

    Everytime I read your comic i cry on the inside T_T

  9. kohaku says:

    Nyoron Churuya-san, fun ? have we seen the same thing ?
    on the other hand haruhi-chan is nice, kinda.
    But if there’s nothing new about haruhi 2 within the 2 next months, well, let’s say people like Tina will get one-way tickets to japan and burn down kadokawa, kyoani and all their families and dogs

  10. Tsuruya-san says:

    I wasn’t impressed at first, but few last episodes of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu were rather good. And Nagato singing Ga-Rei Zero OP was nothing short of awesome.
    Oh, and Kohaku, Nyoron Churuya-san was quite fun. I don’t know what you expected out of it, but considering the source material, it delivered exactly what it should.

    The comic was ok, I don’t think the new way of shading is neccesary, though.

  11. TheBigN says:

    kohaku: I thought Tina was more of the “Quit your fucking whining” mentality with regards to Haruhi-chan and Churuya. But that’s probably me projecting myself onto her. I’m of the “we’ll get to it when we’ll get to it, if we get to it mentality”. I don’t need a second season of Haruhi, so if there’s one, great. If there isn’t, that’s cool.

    Haruhi-chan and Churuya are great. :P

  12. LS says:

    @TheBigN: I wish that I could reach your level of Zen re: second season of Haruhi. I have to admit that one of my first thoughts upon hearing about the complete collapse of the Japanese economy was “shit they might not make a second season of Haruhi.”

    I’m back to typing, btw, trying to achieve ergo-nirvana.

    Hahaha, I finally understood the title of your post.

    In fact, I think Steebu said something that describes this weeks comment pretty well:
    “Dis graphic is, very good graphic!”

    Along with Dog Solider and BAOH, I showed my buddy that video and we cracked up
