  1. Panel 1:
    There are two stages to any project. The first is getting thru all of the things you knew you had to do. Then there is the stage where you have to do all the things you never realized you'd have to do. That's where I am right now. I was thinking of doing another 'Adventures of Piro and Seraphim' comic today, but the truth is Seraphim hasn't really seen much of me in the past few weeks. Anyway, here's a comic-cam view of the past few days...
    Hair is getting long again. Getting the 'Piro Mop' look.
    Same sweater been wearing since laid off.
    Copy of "Love Hina" Vol. 9 wrapped in mock-up of "MegaTokyo" book cover to make me feel like book is almost done.
    Fresh pants.
    Coffee stained 'Bioware' mug. Empty.
  2. Panel 2:
    Piro, dinner.
    In a minute.
    You said that a half hour ago.
    Lemme finish these comments first...
    Never mind, the cats decided not to wait.

  3. Panel 3:
    I shouldn't be in here watching this. I have lots of things to finish yet. It was really nice of you to pick up the "Lord of the Rings" extended version box set, it really was, I so want to watch this, but I have to get back to work and if I don't get the cover finished tonight I won't have time to do the rest of the free talk section and I really need to do a comic for Monday but the layout for the back cover needs to be redone and I haven't even started...
    Hush. Legolas is speaking again. (Sigh...)
  4. Panel 4:
    Aren't you done yet?
    I'm almost done! Really! Just another hour or so...
    You said that two weeks ago.
    Wahh... I'm never gonna get done...
    Curling up in a ball on the floor isn't going to make me feel sorry for you. You're the one who wanted to do this full time.

"out the door"

Tuesday - November 19, 2002

[Piro] - 12:50:00 - [link here]


I swear, i was beginning to wonder if I'd ever finish. There were so many little things, it was mind boggling. But as of about an hour ago, I finished doing the last thing I had to do so that Ellen could finish things up.

I'd like to extend a big thank you to Ellen and Kei and everyone else from I.C. Entertainment for all the hard work they put into helping this hack pull together what I think will be a pretty good book. I also want to thank Dom, Seraphim and Largo for their help and hard work in helping me pull things together.

There seems to have been a lot of discussion about my 'whine quotient' this week. Fftt.. Whatever. :)

Wanna know what i'm gonna do now? Well, other than get crankin on tomorrows comic - I'm gonna sit down and watch tv. I don't even care what it is. I need a break :P

Got a whole bunch of new stuff to dive into this week now that the book is out the door. I'll put up a new rant sometime tomorrow afternoon and let y'all know what's up.

[Dom] - 23:00:00 - [link here]

I swear, half of the time I wish I could stick a muzzle on Fred. What kind of a rejoinder is "I can whine if I want to"? A proper insult would have been something like "This isn't PA. You don't have to pay for my crappy art every month". Or instead of retort, perhaps my style of "yarisugi" riposte, "Hey! I only cater to the finest pedophiles. MegaTokyo: The latest in a long tradition of stalking Japanese little girls". But getting petty and defensive? Sheesh! ;)

Aaaaanyway. The question came up recently: Why do I like Tenchi Muyo! GXP?It's an odd question, but I guess that at my stage of "otaku growth" I'm expected to be bitter and anti-franchise. But dammit, I liked Tenchi Muyo 9 years ago, so why should I hate it now?

Okay. Okay. So admittedly, I didn't quite like the extra TV series and movies, but that's just a matter of the whole "alternate continuity" thing that I don't tend to like (UC Gundam is the only Gundam! Everything else is just trying to replace Char. Talk amongst yourselves). I liked the first OAV, the second OAV was a bit odd but I still liked that. And the third OAV will make me happy when it finally comes out.

"But Dom," say the others, "You didn't like Love Hina, why the hell do you like GXP?" And to you I have one word, or rather two half-words stuck together: Nabeshin. Watanabe Shinichi has rapidly become one of my favorite Japanese directors, behind the obvious choices Kurosawa and Fukasaku. Why? Because like me, he's fucking nuts, and he has an great sense of when to overdo things. So I can live with the harem formula that is so common in fanservice anime because the comedy is so damn funny sometimes. GTO-style wild takes make for a happy Dom.

And I end this rant with this: Funimation better get a better script writer for GXP than they got for Fruits basket--those subs are just painful to read and pick through! ...or maybe I'm just an anal asshole. Whatever.
