Comic Site Rant: Hatsu Inu

Original Post Tried to emulate KyoAni style with this one. Mostly tried to capture Haruhi-esque lighting. I threw in hints of blue here and there, which I think helped. The art in general is fairly good. The second panel could use some work, but overall it’s fine. The joke...

Comic Site Rant: Happy End Of The World

Original Post Honestly, why can’t they make anime like this anymore? I’d love more shows about aliens “indiscriminately attacking Earth.” Anime today doesn’t have enough APOCALYPSE. Also, I love how crudely drawn that city is, especially considering it gets obliterated a couple frames later. Romeo x Juliet is such...

Comic Site Rant: This is parody

Original Post Someone told me that parody falls under “fair use.” So does that mean I won’t be thrown in the slammer for directly copying Death Note dialogue and artwork? I’m quite happy with how this comic turned out. I really like the first panel. It kind of got...

Comic Site Rant: This is satire

Original Post In which I pick up from where comic 40 left off. The end of that comic doesn’t entirely suggest continuity, but hints at it and the title confirms it. I would have finished this arc back in April, but finals, Anime Boston, Gurren Lagann 4 and Genshiken...

Comic Site Rant: Wave Motion Gun

Original Post The last two comics have been two panels simply due to time constraints. Last week I made the comic in the midst of finals, and this week I was working on two other things (one being this, the other being the second OTAKU USA comic.) This one...

Comic Site Rant: Triste

Original Post Whoa, cheapshot alert. This comic isn’t very clever at all. I felt I had to do something about Genshiken 2 though, given it is Big News. Yes, I am excited about it, but if it’s going to be the quality of the previous two animated works, then...

Comic Site Rant: 悲しい予感

Original Post Anime Boston sketch dump. Quick and easy. Comics like these aren’t really funny, I guess. They’re just things that happened. You kind of had to have been there to divine any kind of humour out of these situations. I’d write more about the con but I kind...

Comic Site Rant: Tamashi no Brother, Soul no Kyoudai

Orignal Post I generally don’t enjoy being serious here. In fact, I generally don’t enjoy being serious at all. But sometimes, certain things just need to be addressed. I’m sure by now anyone who lives in the US would have heard about the Virginia Tech shooting. Usually something like...

Comic Site Rant: フルフルフルムーン

Orginal Post I didn’t notice until this morning that in the orginal version of this comic, Rets had six fingers in the last panel. I hastily fixed that a little while ago. It looks a little strange, but it’s better than him being a six-fingered oddity. Aside from that,...

Manhattan Joke

Original Post This comic has +100 wish fufillment points! Seriously, I drew a good half of this comic entirely with my penis. I don’t know any girl anime fans, but I’m sure they don’t all have nice bodies and dress in next to nothing. Sorry. I let my imagination...
