Hi guys, here’s a comic.

It’s pretty hard writing jokes about shows you like, so instead I use the show as an excuse to rag on the characters, I guess. I had this script floating around in my head for a while, but wasn’t sure about using it. It then became Thursday and I realized I should probably make a comic or something, so I just used this script. I think it’s kind of funny. I’m also kind of happy with the artwork, except for the faces in panel two are really bad. I tried to fix them, but they still turned out weird. Rets’ face probably needs to be longer. Other than that, it’s fine.

The comic production time has been steadily going down in recent weeks, to the point where it now takes exactly four hours to colour a normal three-to-four panel comic. This is great, since last time I checked it took something around eight hours. I don’t know how I cut the time down so much, but I guess I have. The sketching still takes around an hour or so, so that brings the entire production time up to about five and a half hours, but I usually do the sketching in classes, so it’s not exactly a big strain on my free time. So yeah, that’s great. Hopefully I can cut the time down to two to three hours and maybe put out more than one comic a week regularly. I doubt it, but a man can dream, right?

Oh yeah, I was on the Anime 3000 panel talkin’ ’bout life in Japan as a stinky Gaijin along with two other guys who have been living there for a lot longer than I did. It was fun, and I think we covered a good amount of ground when it comes to being a not-Japanese person in a country filled with them. Unfortunately, some of my best stuff (mostly stuff about being an Otaku in Japan) got cut. However, if you have an iPhone, you can buy A3000’s iPhone app and download the cut footage there. I don’t have an iPhone, so I can’t get it.

And that’s all for this week! Hopefully I can churn out some blog posts this week instead of doing absolutely nothing.

And maybe we can also sub more Kirumin :V
