5 – A New Toy || Chibi Test

I accidentally deleted J-San’s rant… Such a bad day…

[D][040907]

So, I will try to create a rant that actually stays on a Topic and provides some information, in the spirit of last time’s rant.

So for the few readers who aren’t from Militate in the first place, this is about the board. And I know everyone’s thinking ‘Oh great, another one of D-San’s life stories’, but anyways, I joined militate way back in May or June of 2003 when it was still very much a Yugioh-only forum, mainly under ‘Yugioh-Fusion.com’ Back then, I think they had like 1.75k members and 150k posts or something, but it was growing. To make a long story short, I worked my way up the rank ladder, and then quit Yugioh, and almost quit the board, well, I’m really glad I didn’t. When Justin and I thought up the whole N-Wars thing, in like, July, we were going to make our own forum, and it stayed that way until a week before the official opening, when I asked Chris (Militate webmaster, don’t get him confused with another Chris I might mention later) if he wanted to link to N-Wars. That’s when Chris actualyl suggested I put the N-Wars forum on Militate, and Justin and I figured it was by far a superior alternative. Thus, our N-Wars forums, which will have more than one forum in the future, I promise, is on militate.

So now on to the other thing, this backlog I mentioned. The N-Wars strips that are coming up right now were actually done way back in early August. I did about ten strips before the school year started, and I still have a backlog of about 7 or 8. That would let me go for a month on the current update schedule and never fall behind. Obviously, the goal is to make it so I never fall behind, unlike Gallagher’s Megatokyo.

Justin, on the other hand, well, I think he is struggling…

PS to Justin; the rant box has been expanded to 1448, instead of 1000.

Yes, people, the way my hair is drawn in Nonsense-Wars is accurate.

Well, almost accurate, anyways…

So, my hair doesn’t really flare out in the Tomo-ish (Refer to Azu Manga Dao) way I draw it, and it doesn’t really have those sidelocks that D-San draws, but it still hangs out in the back.

Yeah, some people at school don’t like it, and they make fun of it. I guess that they’re just scared of something different. Variety is the spice of life. I guess it’s just too strong for them.

Actually, I’m not planning to leave it hanging like that. As soon as I find something not-so-girly, I’m going to tie it back, Steel cord, maybe? Some guy I know suggested magnesium ribbon, but…

“My hair’s on fire!!!”

So that’s the story of my hair. See you folks on Friday.

Hmm… J-San’s rant is superior to mine in every aspect possible.

The thing is, I write my rants as more of a live journal focused on the site, rather than a coordinated thought, such as MT’s rants, and J-San’s rants now I look at it. I’m pretty sure this is linked to the fact that I can never think of a good story line nor a good N-Wars punchline (Yes, J-San does make at least 75% of the N-Wars scripts, I just draw them).

Thus, my rants turn out to be random gibberish, such as the last rant. No complete thought whatsoever. It really reminds me of my early comic series, in which I drew random interactions between the characters for almost 90% of the comics. Even the ones that were linked in storylines either became not funny, or just plain stupid.

Starcrossed and Reflection –

Well, lemme go through what they are; These are my two early manga attempts, Starcrossed is like a corny sci-fi love story, and Reflection is a less corny, more serious, sci-fi story about revenge –

are both brilliant examples of this concept. Both of them, moreso Reflection, had plots that were not thought out by me (Though I DID do a bit of the Starcrossed one), and both turned out to be pretty serious strips, SC leaning to the ‘Stupid’ side as well.

Ya, alright, I’m done.

3 – Nose Wars? || Genesis

No rant for this comic.

[D][040902]

Probably nobody. Which leads to the point that we need a way to get more hits. Yes, we have one site linked to us, and I think Chris of Y-F is also planning to, but that probably won’t give us anywhere near MT’s daily average. Well, duh. We’ll also get forum space specifically for N-Wars. Yay!

For the same matter, I hope to just go around and find places to advertise this site the whole weekend, and advertise it. Yay, again.

The comic that is up today; I really like this strip. I just love how J-San is portraying god as a hippie with the big peace necklace and the robe and all. The lightning and the contrast between chaos and what are supposed to be Legos is, in my opinion, very funny. The punchline isn’t that bad either for that matter.

Alright, that’s all I have to say this time. Gotta get started on school work or something like that. I get to do an N-Wars for Chemistry, so that makes stuff easier.

2 – J’s Welcome 2 || Welcome

Yes! We have launched our own webcomic! And it already has a fan base of like…2 people?

As you may have already noticed, I have a way to somehow make all of my scans turn out with strange grey stuff on them! The secret? I’m not sure, but I think it has something to do with those components I removed from it…

And so, Nonsense Wars is launched! Yes, I was the one who came up with the title. Don’t ask where it came from, since there’s probably going to be a Nonsense Wars about that too.

Yes, I know this comic and this website both have a lot of issues, but I’ll probably discuss those in a later rant or a later N-Wars. Be patient!

Well, till the next update, bai~!

[D][040831]

Yeah, well… Officially open I guess.

Not much to say, really, it’s kinda nice to get this thing running.

This strip, is the fifth N-wars strip I’ve done. It’s not that great of a punchline, but it fits the ‘Intro’ the best. Hopefully some of the other strips will be funnier.

On the most part, I really won’t be doing too much drawing until… well, until Summer 2005 comes around. School really does take up a lot of time, and my workload seems to have doubled from last year. Just perfect for running a webcomic. The best I’ll probably be doing is two comics a week, but I will most certainly put up a comic and some other thing once a week… So two updates a week, basically.

On a more technical aspect, I’m still kinda working on improving the art… It’s FAR SUPERIOR to a work I started about a year ago called ‘Starcrossed’, and hopefully my work a year from now will be FAR SUPERIOR to this.

Yeah… I doubt it…

Well, it’s always nice to hope. Any questions, comments or concerns, just Email me… or J-San… I know for a fact J-San checks his Email twice as often as I do.

Until next time, bai!

1 – J’s Welcome || Test

[D][040810]

Hi! I’m J-San! NOT.

Anyways, rant box is longer now. If I’m going to put avatars and shit into the box it HAS to be longer. Even my stupid shit up on the other side was almost hitting the limit. I guess we will never type as long a rant as Gallagher, eh?.

Lemme see if I can find some good avatars. They need to go right under D-San or J-San and above the rant title… Just like MT. This site takes a lot from MT if I haven’t noticed yet.

Ba~i!

[D][040810]

Rightio. I got stuff working here. It actually looks kinda decent with the red and the black together and all. Actually, I think I will change that date to red as well. Let me do just that…

Great, it works. A darker red will probably do better. Plus I need to get the link to change colors. Apparently colors don’t seem to work in hrefs.

Centering the header suxors. Now I got the crap to work in the hred too. This is actually quite stupid, talking to myself. No one will see this original page though it will probably stay uploaded and shit. All right, that’s it. Time to find something to put in J-San’s box. Avatars may be nice too.
