Hang In There, Kogasa-san
« on: May 22, 2012, 07:23 »
This is a fun self-insert 4-koma by Mizuki Hitoshi, replacing himself and all his friends with Touhou characters! It's a fun little series to read. Gen got a chance to meet him at this years Anime Boston.

Here's the pool on danbooru: http://danbooru.donmai.us/pool/show/2420 (caution, ads are NSFW)

And here's today's strip: http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/1170467/

The current arc has Mizuki portraying his events in Boston with Gen and the northeast Touhou group! In this strip, Kogasa-san is pushing a deadline...

I was hoping you would think to make a thread on this. I love this strip; I've been reading it and commenting on it everyday for the past few weeks. Too bad we can't really hotlink, but putting links to the strips works. :grin:

So, trying to put up the new strips a little faster.

Today, Kogasa's attention is on a Nue cosplayer, however, someone doesn't seem to like that too much...

There were quite a few of us there, I'm glad to see Mizuki-san honored the best of the group by drawing them in the group panels. :grin:
That Nue cosplayer was awesome! If you told me she was the real deal, I would have believed it. Too bad her wings were damaged by the end of the con, though, she has a better set that she didn't bring out to AB, from what I heard.
She has a DA page here: http://ayatonyaa.deviantart.com/
There's a picture of her and Mizuki-san together here: http://ayatonyaa.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d4vtd87

I can't wait to see what Mizuki-san brings up in tomorrow's strip. :meaw:

Wow, she really does look like Nue! It's one of those costumes where red-eye from the camera flash actually makes it look better.

Today's strip: http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/1172463
Featuring "Yu From Japan," the excited Japanese lady. (You can see her in the video here: http://youtu.be/5kiW9VybA4Y?t=7m58s)

Apparently Gen is now "Hunky Momiji," according to the comments on Pixiv

I remember her; she was really excited to see all of us, really excited. She was fun, though. :meaw:
As for "Hunky Momiji," well... I'm not sure what to think about that. It's like... eat a giant hamburger --> become small scale celebrity. I hope Momi's (cosplayer name) costume get's enough attention; she had the better costume between the two of us.

I guess a lot of people thought you and the hamburger thing was funny. I do hope all the cosplayers get a chance to sign. You guys all did such a wonderful job!
(I think I like shotgunbrella Tokiko the best. That's just pure awesome!)

Kogasa karaoke time!

I like UK's little rant about how poorly karaoke at AB was run. They really should have managed it a little better; hopefully it won't be an issue next year. :XD:

That really was a poorly run Karaoke. I didn't realize how nervous Mizuki-san was (assuming he isn't exaggerating it too much for the strip). I guess it did end up working out better in the end.

It's a shame they had so many problems! They should have run it better. Were the people running it this year new, or something?
