Comic Update: Starry Sky

Original Post

Here’s a comic that won’t be funny unless you get most of the references. Heck, it’s probably still not funny even if you do get them. But I like it, so I made it. It’s my comic after all, I’ll do what I want!

This comic was kind of born from me just wanting to reference a bunch of (mostly) old school shows, and then in the end I wrapped it all in a Pani Poni Dash gag that I believe also turned into an old 2ch neta. I figured I’ve already alienated my readership with this blog entry some days ago, so why not go all the way and throw out some jokes only I’ll get? Sounds good to me!

Comiket is approaching with speed comparable to that of the Millennium Falcon, and I’ve yet to mark off my maps. I’ve just been so busy walking around Japan and taking pictures! I’ll try to mark my stuff off tomorrow. I’m lining up days 1 and 3 most likely, and just strolling in on day 2. I know some readers are going, so if you’re interested, drop a comment in the comments section and maybe we can work some last-minute meet out.

That’s all for this week. There probably won’t be comics for the next week or two due to a) Comiket and b) me going back home. So you’re left this one for a while! Enjoy it!

    So yeah hows about that alienation?

    Anyway what’s going on here? Is he telling Brad that he can’t pay for the comic because his life is anime?

    I understood every reference and I still don’t know wtf just happened

    I think he said that he spent all his money on old anime that Brad likes.
    You know Brad thinks that in the old days anime was manly and he hates the modern moe stuff.
    So I kinda liked this one.

    Can’t be true. Because all these characters are wearing glasses even though they should not.

  7. DmonHiro says:

    Cobra, Lupin, Gundam and Evangelion………..I still don’t get it.

  8. wah says:

    His excuses is that he was being Cobra, being Lupin, being Amuro and being Rei which is why he has no money.

    In the PPD gag it was just one anime reference which was why Himeko was late for the school. I just made four.

  9. Zelkiiro says:

    I gotta say, you nailed Jigen.

    That guy exudes badass and sells it online, only to buy it out himself to be reunited with it.

  10. Ryugan says:

    jajaj that were good excuses, ah i forgot for all the fans of kaede that doesnt know jappanesse

    yup english release

  11. Defectron says:

    I guess being anime characters costs alot of money

    –Quoted for truth.

    But all of the series are pretty recognizable to be fair..

    Anyways, it’s hard to figure out how the series relate to not having money, let alone being funny, heh….
