Someone I know has a theory that a friend of mine is the inspiration for Tina. While this is not true, this time his words are the punchline for this comic. I find it amusing that in a culture in which all manner of otherwise innocent characters are raped in the minds of horny young men, a concept of certain characters being off-limits amuses me. Certainly, that doesn’t stop people from drawing Cardcaptor Sakura’s Sakura being raped by faceless men, and there’s already a slew of pictures depicting Ika Musume’s naked semen covered body; but there are people out there with standards. I think it’s a little funny to bring that kind of sentiment into a comic such as this, where generally nothing is sacred. Not super funny, but a little funny. I wasn’t shooting to high with this one.
Speaking of high, saying SoreMachi has a “huge” budget is kind of misleading. It has a huge budget for a SHAFT show, and as a result more or less moves like normal anime.
That’ll be all for this week. Let’s see if I can throw together a Christmas-themed comic by the 25th…
