Friday - September 29, 2000
Ah, it's the last day of September. It's been just about a month and a half since we started megatokyo. Back when largo talked me into doing this strip during one of my slightly longer lapses of sanity, I figured that I'd give it a month and see how it goes. At first we were totally clueless about things like Sites That People Actually Visit (tm) and What To Do If You Have One(tm). Largo got some traffic analysis tools running and we determined that, geewow, a few people really ARE reading it. After 21 strips, I can draw a little better now thanks to the practice, so it wasn't all bad. My computer (affectionately known as "Ayu-chan") has had only three close calls where I was ready to take a lead pipe and munge it to a plasticy metal pulp. I get far less sleep than i used to. I think that a few of the strips were actually funny.
I guess I'll keep drawing the comic. What the hell. ^^;;
If you haven't already noticed, we've replaced the old forum with InfoPop's Ultimate Bulletin Board. The old forum worked just fine over at fredart, but then again, there wasn't a lot of traffic there. The MT forum started groaning under the load pretty quick, and I personally had trouble keeping up with all the threads. Largo and I have been talking about replacing it for many weeks now, and we knew we had to eventually. We like to think of it as a gift to our little community, such as it is ^^;; - we hope you all enjoy it. Its easier to use than the old one, lets you register your nick and stuff and is a hella lot faster too. Oh, and you can thank largo for ponying up the credit card number to get it. Whatta guy. :P
While Largo was being useful and installing the forum, I was totally veging out watching TV. My brain had finally coagulated into a rather sluggish mush by the end of the week. I couldn't draw worth crap (I have an unfinished sketch of Mikage sitting here that gives me the freaks and should be burned). So, in that fluidic state, what more perfect thing to watch than DigiCharat! Wai! I Finally had a chance to watch the DigiCharat Summer Special. The animation was a bit lacking, which really surprised me - some of it seemed excessively cheezy. It's a shame given the cuteness of the characters. The best art in the whole show was the ending credits - of which today's screenshot is a sample of... ah, Rabi-chan wa kawaii~!
I then spent the better part of two hours watching more Miracle Girls. I really had forgot how good this show is. (sigh) Only Mikage could make falling down the stairs on her ass so incredibly cute. :) Mikage-kun~~!
