Comic Update: It’s the most beautiful ugly sound in the world
Late to the party with this one, and the joke is incredibly obvious, but I feel if you’re the only anime webcomic on the net, being late and obvious is a luxury–no competition! But yeah, if you’ve seen Madoka Magica, you know what this is all about.
As far as the art goes, I think panel 1 is the best even if the angle and the pseudo-fish eye lens is kind of BS. I did panel 2 last so it looks the worst–Rets has a giant jaw, and Tina also has something of a man jaw. Panel 3 is alright, but Tina’s face is kind of too long. I think I nailed Rets’ expression well, though.
Not much else to say except that I started a Tumblr a little while ago. For the time being I’ll just be posting all the various SHAFT and Shinbo related things I have on my PC. Scans, screencaps, photographs, videos, songs, whatever, it’ll be up there. I may expand out, but for now it’ll be a SHAFTXSHINBO Tumblr.
Yay for pixiv calendar~
Five episodes in and madoka still isn’t a magical girl, I wonder if shinbo made a bet with someone “Hey I bet you I can make a magical girl anime where the main character never actually becomes a magical girl despite appearing in the OP”.
Rets’ face looks like he’s coming or yawning in the first panel.
I am really falling in love with this show. I have always wanted a serious magical girl show and this is totally filling my need.
If you read interviews with Shinbo, that’s actually the kind of thing he’d say…
There may be some (un)lucky girl off camera…
I’ve actually been giving it a hard time–it’s not really scratching my SHAFTXSHINBO itches very well. Dictatorially it is, but I feel the characters are kind of flat.
This is the best comic you’ve made in a while.
Funny thing you mentioned this
I like how the background is getting darker and darker with each week. Very nice comic.
Oh, that wasn’t actually intentional. Hahaha!
