Comic Update: They found me. I don’t know how, but they found me.
Posted On June 11, 2009
As you can tell from the date, this was meant to go up yesterday, but it’s been a little busy here at MoY HQ. I’m in the middle of some midterms (ending tomorrow) and I’m currently staking out on Yahoo Auctions for something Very Special. But here it is, a day late. It’s just a quick, one panel affair. Took no more than an hour or so to make, hence why I’m posting it in the middle of the week. I simply just felt a burning desire to turn this sentiment into a comic, with that sentiment being the HAYATE SECOND SEASON ENDING THEME IS STUPID.
As per usual this is going to end rather quickly, but not before I share with all of you a most incredible tale.
I am a member at my university’s manga circle. It’s mostly Japanese people, but there are a few gaijin. Of those few, there is one (I believe Chinese) guy who is both very good at Japanese and English. I’m in the club room today, drawing next week’s comic, and this guy walks in and sits next to me. After a few minutes he questions me.
“Your style looks very familiar” he says.
It is at this point that I begin to wonder, “Could this person be a reader?” Then again, my style is quite generic so it could be anyone.
He then goes on to say, “Is that… Mistakes of Youth?”
I nod. “Yes.”
“You’re the creator?” he says.
And it simply went on from there. This sort of thing has happened once before, but not nearly on the same scale. No one from my same university in my same club has ever sat down next to me, looked at what I was drawing then recognized me from the internet. I kind of thought something like this may happen, but the fact that it actually did blows my fucking mind. The guy hasn’t read the comic in a few weeks, but given what just happened he may check up on the site tonight. You know who you are!!!
And that’s all for today. See ya’ll on Saturday.
