RE: the controversy, Unbalanced x2 Chapter 81

Don’t ask, just read. Trust me, if you read Unbalance x2, this is one you don’t want to miss. A warning, you might need to put your drink down and not eat anything before proceeding:

Really, I so wanted to see more of the twintail laying the smack down on the lying….never mind.

I wonder how readers would have reacted had Jin-ho done the hitting…

In order to prevent myself from going sane, I had to play my “INSANE” playlist during the making of this manga parody, which includes Dance, Funk, Electronic honky tonk, songs with vocals and Ani songs and even The a La Menthe, Noisia’s Machine Gun, and Track #2 from the Free Bulletstorm OST.

Some info, and jokes if they don’t make sense:

-Hmm… where do I start. I was chewing some gum for 2 hours, and then found the time to work on this parody, and apparently continued chewing the gum….
-Something more meaningful, some of you might remember that my memory is extremely good, so finding what panels to use wasn’t so hard. What was hard is the standard page size layout that I use for the “RE: the controversy” Anime trollsubs (which you can see by clicking the tag), which basically means fitting an acceptable amount of panels within the page size. You can see some empty space in the early pages, which is a result of lack of panels to at least support his change of attire.
-Which is my favorite edit? I have to admit, I’m not the kind of guy who likes to hit girls, but the “torture” scene was easily my most hilarious one, which helps Twintail-chan was doing the beating and not Jin-ho. Of course the hilarious part about it was how easy it was to find a shot of Jin-ho at that angle. Believe me when I saw this, Im Dal Young’s manga will have this same exact angle for the most of the manga/manwha.
-Yeah, what I’m going to update later on, in short, during the days of Oct 16-24, my laptop suffered a multiple partition failure (I like to set up 2 or more partitions to separate OS from FILES) after I moved partitions off their designated sector area. Long story short, my lappy is back on XP, RAM downgraded to 1GB, and…. life goes on πŸ˜›
-This is actually my second manga edit, which the first one was for Kimi No Iru Machi.
-Yeah, I simply added a “d” to the title. totally a parody, ja?
-Honestly, in no way is this to be a snide shot at Im Dal Young. I’m not going to lie, I found his works entertaining….to some degree. There is the eventual hiccup in storytelling, or the rage that follows after reading the newest chapter, but…. I can’t help but think of the “what if’s”. I would like to meet the guy, or maybe even a conference chat, to see the clashing of these minds :D. It would be even better if he could read this parody.
-And uh…. buy the manga/manwha if you like it. Or wait….XD

And, finally, thanks go out to:

-The A-Team, for all this… MY BLOG ISN’T AN ONLINE READER Whoohoo! πŸ˜€
-Animesuki forum members, for putting up with my insanity.
-Sony, for their lack of driver support forcing me to regress my Vaio back to Windows XP.
-And whoever made Angry Birds, a game I can safely say I have NEVER played, yet heard (gruesome) tales about.

I’d appreciate it if you guys can spread this around the net. After that chapter 81 came out, with so many negative reactions, I thought we all could use a laugh before the eventual final chapter. And if you can point to my blog here, that’d be nice πŸ˜€

Disclaimer: the mangatron does not condone the torturing of girls, *cough*especially ones with a cute face and nice rack er legs*cough*, and the mangatron does not recommend one plays a game such as Angry Birds for the entire duration of an international flight, especially one spanning around 11 hours (Seoul, South Korea to London, UK), and most importantly….. don’t stalk your love interest halfway across the globe just to surprise confess to her, be a freakin man and man up to her face to face and confess! Imagine what happens when you get dumped!? Round trip ticket much? Hentai doujin protags do a better job than Jin-ho πŸ˜›

It had to happen, Kimi no Iru Machi 137(END)

Well, that was a good run. The series had it's ups and major downs,
but it had to end sometime. Thanks for the memories, Seo Kouji.

What? It's not April Fools day? Holy time machine Batman XD

My Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou Lily Shiraishi 4koma

Wowser whee, what a hilarious run this 4koma had. My mind was all over the place while drawing this, I slept at my desk several times, and while finishing it up, I made such an obvious glaring typo: Lily’s name on the title.

Man, was I wiped. So tired, even the weekend didn’t help in easing my tension. As usual:

–I’ve been to a couple of theme parks in my life (Universal Studio’s Hollywood, Knotts berry farm, Disneyland, etc), and it always amused me how there was a height limit to some rides, effectively leaving out a lot of kids from having their fun (weren’t these parks for them? XD)
–I actually had a tough time with this 4koma. The last 3 panels were set in stone from the inception of this project, but the first one needed to convey a plausible lead-in to set up the joke. At first I wanted to use plain old text, but that wasn’t very fitting of me (I draw draw draw). Next I thought of just starting it with her in front of the ride, but that wasn’t even informative. Eventually I settled with a narrator type of lead-in, which is where I went all out with my usual art style.
–That first panel was actually a nightmare to draw, as it was about 3-4 times the size of my screen resolution on my device. There were constant zoom in, zoom out’s and what not, ultimately lowering my chances of continuing fanart of Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou.

And, that’s it for now maybe.

Second Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou 4koma

So… I know it’s late, but wowser am I tired. Anyways, here it is, round 2 of my Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou 4koma.

So, a teleporting Soga Keena… I’d like to see that. Or should I now say I did see that? Episode 08 ruined the surprise!

Β This is why I was waiting for episode 07 to air, so I can confirm if Keena’s invisibility is mana based. Which we see it is, so that confirmed my earlier suspicion that she can use invis while flying. As if it wasn’t so hilarious enough, episode 08 confirmed that she can fly while invisible o_o;

2 weeks ago I had this thought, why doesn’t she fly while invisible? Given that she can fly quite fast, she can give the illusion of teleportation, by simply going invisible, flying to a spot close by, re-appear, invis again and rinse and repeat. Now I don’t know what’s more of a surprise, that I knew she was going to fly invisibly naked, or that she really can o__O*

I guess to elevate the wait for this 4koma to come out, I figured I’d share with everyone how I do things. You can check it out here: How the mangatron draws his 4koma

Mobile blogging seems to be the new standard for me

Oddly enough this is a desktop browser post. But as it stands, I won’t be desktop blogging as much as I blog via my smartphone, internet is free when using my phone to do stuff but when I tether it get’s rather pricey when taking price + satisfaction and with no regard to time limits/data plan limits into consideration.

Man, and several years ago I thought Germany’s 250KB/s DSL downstream was slow. Having had experienced dial-up again as recently as Jan of last year, I’ll take 250KB/s any day πŸ˜€

So I’ll mostly be blogging my anime and manga experiences from time to time. I feel the need to document my side life as during my sickness it sure got lonely around these here parts. I even had to renovate my entire blog since Blogger got updated.

Luminous Arc 2 4Koma series introduction

To celebrate my somewhat odd Endings Guide submitted to GameFaqs, I’m pleased to announce the introduction to my planned series of 4Koma’s, title “Luminous Arc 2 After Story” which will cover the various plot holes, unnoticed jokes, unanswered questions at the end of the game and whatnot. Of course, the whole idea behind this was to showcase my skills as a mangaka (albeit I took a rather easy approach to things, ie Minami-Ke style >_>) and to also display my somewhat odd sense of humor and the lack or betterness thereof.

Putting that aside, let’s get crikey with it, shall we? The first of hopefully many more to come:

It it wasn’t apparent, you’d have to get as far as chapter 28 and have done Rina’s Final Intermission to get the above joke…

Enjoy and hope there’s more to come!

(Sorry about the watermarking, I haven’t officially revealed my Artist Circle yet so until that’s done I probably won’t let up…)

Comments are open to any and all in case I wasn’t open on that regard.

Veeta….Do you exist only in my mind?

The Mahou Shoujo Lilikaru Nanoha StrikerS thread at the Animesuki forums

Ok, I’m a mad person. I was just speculating, having fun you know, when I got into overdrive mode lol. But while doing this post, I had the sudden dread of blood rushing to my head. I have a PDA, see, and I took up drawing on it recently. So the thought occurred to to me, “Since my adrenaline is tops, why don’t I show them how I want Veeta to be?”. Well, after a couple of minutes or hour or so, here was what I was able to sketch on a puny little screen:

Ok, I’ve been drawing for years, and on paper I’m at a professional level. But this is the first time I have drawn on a 320×320 HP iPaQ PPC PDA. I have drawn on a Vadem Clio before, but on such a small screen, the image had to be created small (The Clio has a 640×480 screen). I’ll also admit this PDA’s screen protector wasn’t really a smooth surface. But, who cares, to me the sketch turned out fine, and I’ll say a grown Veeta has my innards churning ’round and ’round lol.

I’ll say it wasn’t hard figuring out how Veeta will end up, since I had previously envisioned her while doing the Animesuki post. I still can’t believe they were mentioning high heels, when I was actually joking about that. I had felt that having the usagibunny on her head wasn’t really a grown thing to do, so the idea of a plushie hanging by the belt was interesting. It should be no surprise why I decided on striped stockings instantly. And yes, naturally I went with boots, seriously now did you honestly think high heels was even a consideration? XD

You know, it actually felt good to draw once again. I didn’t have, what whoeverhisnamewas would say, “A pencil, a paper and a place to draw the world of my mind.” By the way it was me who said that. lol. Ehem, anyways, I was thinking of doing a manga on this HP iPAQ, seeing as how fired up I was to actually finish something on a PDA. We’ll see, we’ll see…..
