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.

For the last couple of frames, I would like you to imagine them flashing in quick succession, matched to something like this. Or the opening notes to this. Use your imagination!

    So, when are you directing your own anime?

    I don’t want days that are less than 2 seconds! What is wrong with me, why did I think that title would even make sense, or be funny, or desirable for that matter. Fuck it. I’m not going to go back and fix it now.

    Whoo! I was beginning to lose hope for the next update. Mitsudomoe doujin’s scare me, don’t know why.

    The punchline makes me feel like I just watched an episode of Seinfeld or something. As if the next panel should just be Tina sipping her coffee looking at Rets as he stands there looking at her with a vaguely simmering in impotent rage face.

    The panel afterward would just be the same thing with a *sip* or *slurp* sound attached above Tina and Rets frowning.

    Is “It just can’t be helped” a reference to something?

    • wah says:

      It’s a joke on how lazily fansubbers will usually translate the Japanese phrase “shou ga nai” or “shikata ga nai” which means something to the effect of “nothing can be done.” If you follow me on twitter I say IT CAN’T BE HELPED ironically a lot.
