I, on the other hand, did not see this coming at all. Perhaps I was just expecting another bad ass like Viperelli? I love it though..
Good! We wondered how many readers might get pissed off that this badass space bounty hunter turns out to not only be a girl, but an anime fox-girl. With an adorable pink sidekick.
Wow. Truly a surprise for me. I have never got into anime at all. I do remember several of my friends were reall into Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon, but i really dont remember any of it from the 80s.
Not even Voltron
? The first Voltron
series was originally an anime called Beast King GoLion
("Go" being the Japanese word for "Five"). And then there were the pseudo anime cartoons like Transformers
, which was drawn and animated in Japan, but the rest of the production was handled in the US.
Darwick resembles a Carebear though.
That's absolutely one of Darwick's inspirations.
I guess Darwick's duty is to boldly go where no care bear has gone before then?
That, or it could just be her radical tummy tattoo.
I like how you guys try to obscure her tits instead of, say, not drawing them and come up with a lame explanation later. Alternatively you could have not given her enormous boobs but that would be uncharacteristic for both this comic and the anime genre..
Hey, not every chick in our comic is stacked. Why, just look at... uh, Tina! Yeah. See? Tit equality. But yeah, it certainly would have been easier if we hadn't made Kit one of the most boobacious characters in a roster that already skews top-heavy, but we've always imagined her to be over-the-top sexed out.
But actually, huge tits weren't so ubiquitous in '80s anime as they became later. They weren't unheard
of (Fujiko Mine
from Lupin III
had been boobing it up on television since the '70s), but they were surprisingly rare. It seems the general style of the time favored girls with very petite frames and modest busts, I would guess in large part due to the extreme popularity of the character Lum
from Urusei Yatsura
. Even characters that were meant to be busty "in-universe," like the Dirty Pair
, were drawn with boobs that would seem rather small by today's anime standards.
That's right. I'm like a sage of anime tits.
Alternatively you could have not given her enormous boobs
Somebody get him the fuck out of here
