The World Spins at 45RPM
Yes, there are a few Mitsudomoe doujinshi here and there if you look, but there aren’t nearly enough. I don’t really know what’s happened to Japan, but it seems loli anime just doesn’t do it for a lot of the nerds there anymore. I suppose uppity middle schoolers who like the same junk that they do is more up their alley these days. But I have seen the chubbiness cited as an issue as well; to which I respond, “That’s an issue?” Yeah, the kids in the show have baby fat… because they’re kids! Doesn’t that just make it better? I don’t know about you, but I’m all for both skinny lolis and chubby lolis. But I guess that’s just me.
Tina’s wearing a number I found while surfing a Japanese clothing retailer online, and the glasses will probably become part of her main outfit. The pair she’s wearing now–the same pair she’s wearing in her profile picture on the character page–are just some random designer frames I found while searching around. Much like her wardrobe, I’ll be giving her different pairs of glasses to cycle through with each comic. She’ll not have the on sometimes, too. But I want her to have glasses more often than not now, just because. Rets is just wearing a shirt and tie with patterns on them, ’cause that’s how he rolls.
Me being the typical wannabe that I am, I drew a bit from Madoka Magica when doing the background. While I am giving Madoka Magica a ton of grief, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like the show’s overall visual aesthetic. I guess they’re in a cafeteria or something.
