Note: The above comic should be animated…if it’s not…uh…try harder.
This week I was inspired by several things — ridiculously cute anime, ridiculously violent anime, super happy fuzzy cutie ferrets, and of course, Tumblr. Originally I wanted anime girl here to get so excited that she shot through the wall, leaving only a cartoony, person-shaped hole. But I was looking at the rough and realized, oh my god, this comic is actually cute. It could be suitable for very small children, even. Disgusted with myself, I immediately scrapped the sketch of the last panel in favor of something more depraved and uncomfortable. I also hope that I maintained a somewhat accurate representation of anime/manga stylings, because it wasn’t nearly as easy as I thought it would be. Anime artists and animators get my respect!
I’m pretty sure everybody on the internet knows this by now, but in case my mom is reading: “kawaii” is the japanese word for cute. Rob loathes the word, so you should write him some extremely kawaii pokemon fan fiction.
If you liked this comic even remotely, why not upvote it on reddit?
I got myself one of those fancy Tumblr’s if you want to follow me on it. I post lots of pictures and weird drawings. I’m also pretty active on twitter these days. The need to follow people/have more followers is starting to slowly become a “thing” and I am already looking forward to my twitter intervention party.
Animating at the studio is getting insanely busy, so updates in the future may not be fantastically frequent. We’ll see! Oh, thanks everybody for buying Mall Monkeys CDs! They’re still selling which is more than anyone could have ever guessed.
*update*! Thanks to Andrew Schlueter for donating! He donated $60 so that gets his likeness in a future comic, if he wants. Andrew, we’ll be contacting you about that soon. *high five*
