You're posting "joke translations" of the comic. That certainly isn't in the comic and if I get a chance, I'll scan/post the original (if I can spot it ... a lot of strips look alike in visual).

I agree with you, and I would be stunned if this image (and images far, far worse) would bother the character's creators one bit. In fact, I would be surprised if the anime's creators aren't extremely happy about the doujin/fan artist attention their characters are getting. It's a message and a happy one at that.

As someone who's created (with lots of love, no less!) original characters, having given them names and personalities and all, I would be very, very appalled if I ever found a fan "misusing" them, and I would go many lengths to contact the fanartist and request that they take the image down. I have something of a parental love of all the characters I create... But I know, that's just me.

I'm sure most mangaka are used to (and maybe even like) their characters being thrown into very OOC, "sexy" poses. It's a compliment that fanartists want to draw their characters, I know. It's just also very tasteless, IMO.

You have no idea how many fake impressions of Lucky Star this strip gave to people. Most of the angry blog/forum posts and comments I've read ranting about Lucky Star episodes 1 and 2 have cited this possible yuri coupling as a reason to try the series.

I think, however, that we should avoid imposing our values on this community. They have their own traditions and history. Work far more provocative is done out in the open, and the original creators could, if they were so inclined, go after the people responsible. I believe it has happened, but they tend not to.

Many, many creators started out as doujin/fan artists. Quite a few continue to do fan art.

A couple of things have become very obvious to me over the last couple of years, and I think they should be obvious to anyone who spends a fair amount of time in AnimeSuki's image threads or on any image board for that matter:
  1. The line between "doujin/fan artist" and "professional illustrator" is often blurred to the point of nonexistence.
  2. The line between "original designer of beloved anime characters" and "digital pornographer" frequently doesn't exist.
Animation companies are also active participants in this sort of thing. Just think of how many quasi-official, provocative Haruhi pinups we've seen from Megami and NewType magazines. (I just used Haruhi as an example. The list of anime girls dressed in bunny suits, exposing their underwear, bathing, etc., is a long one.) The Lucky Star characters have been treated a little differently in magazines so far, but Kagami has become a bit of a sex symbol in the doujin community. Again, I doubt this bothers Kyoto Animation or the strip's creator.

Edit: I intended my use of the word "pornographer" to be value neutral. I'm not trying to insult or pass judgment on anyone.

I think my final take is that the pic of Kagami-bunny is probably something she'd *like* to do (maybe as a glamour shot for a boyfriend... if she had one) but since she's publicly a "good girl" she'd just die if something like that ended up on the Net.

I don't mind tasteful sexy but I don't have a lot of love for the explicit OOC material. Tastes vary. I know a few authors that take fairly extreme measures to shut down "hentai" of their characters... and others that are happy with anything.

Chances are that Kagami's face and her tsundere factor are motivation (or turn on's) for dojinshika's to ever qualify her as a sex simbol. Heck, the moe factor is so complicated...

...by the way, Megami and Newtype, where is my Kanon cast in bunnygirl/bathing suit that I've been waiting for so long? Answer Me!!

Wow, this has totally gotten out of hand.

Ascaloth, it was fun for a while, but you're beginning to take this a bit too far.
Kaioshin... just let it go, man. Let it go, and it'll all go away.

The problem here, FPB, is that Kaioshin won't let any of it go. No matter how much we kindly ask him, for whatever reason known only to him, he doesn't want to. (not referring to the "feud," but his "concerns" about Kyoto Animation and the like) --Just wanted to clarify that.

Anyway, to put this thread back on topic!!!!

Man I wish I could play Kyoto Animations superior version since they managed to make SCEA's look like crap like every other company below their heavenly grace. In fact Kyoto Animation should make God of War III, not SCEA.
what? No way, I need screenshots to confirm it! Damn you, KyoAni, you just made this game better!
