The saga of The Last Mystical Legend of the Fantastic Fantasy Trigger Star continues...

BONUS DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY

-I try to avoid tinkering with the original line work too much for these "remastered" strips, but I absolutely had to resize Snacktray's head because it was MASSIVE in the original comic and it's bugged me for years.

-the "fanboys" in this strip are based off actual customers at the comic shop where I worked at the time (except for the dude on the far left who is "comic book guy" from the simpsons). I could probably write a book of stories about how these guys used to creep out the the female customers (and annoy the bejeezus out of me).

-In the original strip, one of the fanboys asked "Wanna be on Varietease"? Varietease was one of those pay sites where cosplayers, wannabe models, and webcam girls would basically take pictures of themselves in bathtubs for cash. Not sure if it's still around and frankly I don't wanna know. I changed the line to "I defended you on a forum" to poke fun at "white knighting" which might be a little less dated than a reference to a particular site.

-In the late 90s-early 2000's, I used to be a prolific cosplayer in the anime/comic convention circuit. The "Greatest Cosplayer Ever" line was my totally transparent bitterness about being a male cosplayer in a hobby where I'd never get as much recognition as a scantly-clad girl. I gave it up and moved on years ago, but figured I wouldn't try to whitewash my feelings at the time.

-The original comic was done Aug 4 2006. Words, Pencils & Color by Me, Inks by Sarah

lol I love your comics~ Especially the accurateness in the fanboys. That happens to me sometimes, only when I wear a slutty costume though :/ I was a Namine and about ten people total recognized me, and two guys wanted my pic cause they liked the character. But the next day I wore a maid costume and I was grabbed, hugged, spun around, followed and asked to be in several pictures >:/ I worked so hard on the Namine costume with my aunt! But wear some fishnets and a short skirt and you'll be stalked and this one guy even asked me to show him my tits D< What is the point of my bitching? To say CREEPS RUIN FANDOMS! Creepy guys and fangirls man, we should just take them all and toss 'em off a cliff! RAGE!

It also bugs me because girls with huge tatas are always on the front page naked with their hoochie showing (lol I'm getting creative) and you'll see all these comments saying shit like "ZOMG SO HAWT!" or my favorite"HURRHURR I'd like to slap those titties around~" and it's like "EEWWWWWW! WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT!" Creeps just....just go away. Go to Mars or something, fap to anime over theeerrreeee stop ruining the world for everyone else D<

Aw D8 THAT'S SO SAD! :tighthug: that makes me wanna punch every pervert in the face for ruining cosplayers experience :( NOBODY SHOULD FEAR PERVERTS! And all perverts should be smacked for being perverts D<

But naw, you aren't the only one so don't feel bad 8D apparently perverts ruin a lot of people's cosplays XD I read this one blog where this girl said her friend was sexually assaulted(her wording was more like he glomped and humped the poor kid) cause she was cosplaying Tsunade and the guy liked Tsunade DX And the poor kid was 13! How horrible is that! Not to mention totally scarring and disgusting! Personally I would've broken the guys jaw and ripped out his eyeballs then beat the living shit out of him with the nearest heavy object but she said they just told security. I read that though and I was actually speachless because I have NO idea how something THAT BAD happens and somebody could get away with it. Just disgusting. Perverts man, we should take them all, and shove 'em off a cliff D< lol

OH MY GOODNESS! I read that and now I kind of want to cry. That's horrible. Only 13! Did security do anything about the guy? THat's just aweful. Perhaps we should just hire bodyguards. ... female ones haha. But, gosh, that really is just aweful that we are having this conversation in the first place. :/ I mean, I guess for some guys they just don't know how to conduct themselves in the real world, but.... still. I'm am thinking a seminar of some sort is in need before events open. I don't know....

Oh my lord I know right?! I was horrified! AND SHE WAS THIRTEEN! Geez if that happened to me NOW I would be scared for life! lol female body guards, off course~ I think every girl should have a body guard! There's just too many creeps out there! It's not fair that in school girls are always taught "don't get raped" instead of teaching boys "DON'T RAPE." It's so messed up.

There should be a list of rules "DON'T SEXUALLY HARASS PEOPLE OR YOU WILL BE THROWN OUT!" because that guy, really, that is so inappropriate it's not even funny.

I don't know what security did though, I'd hope they'd throw the guy out and ban him from the convention cause no matter HOW buddy-buddy people get at an anime convention that's crossing a line. She could easily sue the people at the convention for making an "unsafe" atmosphere. She could also press charges against the guy for sexually assaulting a minor!

Whoa, sorry for the text wall XD I'll try to break it up a bit so it's not so tl;dr XD

haha that's alright. I don't mind.
And yes, I agree comepletely on the whole "teach boys not to rape, instead of 'don't get raped' to girls"! I literally out loud said "YES!" when I read that! =) I can't believe there aren't already rules and regulations like that in place at the conventions. Seems strange to me! I suppose if it happened to me now, I would... probably just smack the guy haha, but if it happened when I was 13.... I don't know. I was already terrorfied of rape and guys back then because of the whole "don't get raped" thing, and the media going off all the time about how often it happens.
I'm glad other people understand. =)

I really don't like Snacktray to be honest she's just too..... stupid.

Breadbun is adorable really and i hope to see she gets a good partner in the comic. :D

Although i really hope she wont be one of those female characters who turns out to be a lesbian at a later point in the comic just ruins the characters to me. :disbelief:

I tend to read every word since English's my 2nd language and reading it all helps me understand it better. :P I assure you though, I also tend to skim over something written in my mother-tongue sometimes, and subsequently, I always miss something. :XD:
Must be a thing that comes with having learned a language from birth - you subconsciously think you can understand it all in a whim, and skim over the text instead of reading it throughly. :D
