Girls the Wild’s is a manhwa about a school in Korea run by a white man.
I’m sure the artist meant “Girls of the Wild” and probably a play-on words with “Girls Gone Wild”. But nevertheless, it’s a decent Korean webcomic with a point-blank generic harem theme. I don’t know whether I like it, but it’s definitely something for me to pass the time with.
The art’s nice, and that’s probably the only thing that matters.
I’m actually a bit disappointed because the beginning chapters seemed to hint at a serious storyline with actual depth. Then all of a sudden, it’s like all those flashbacks were meaningless because the girls turned into formless amoebas that exist only to fill the character molds they were ripped off of.
To make the formula even more formulaic, our protagonist Jae Gu is a pathetic loser who gets bullied. It’s not entirely clear which route he’ll choose: Either learn to fight ala Kenichi, or continue to grovel in submission and act cute so his cute upperclassmen can fight his battles for him. Either way, it’s unrealistic. I don’t know what happened to his balls from early on in the series when he stood up to the most powerful female in Korea.
All I can say is… meh.
I think no matter how this story pans out, I’ll continue to be disappointed with the protagonist…

Drawr.net is a Japanese artist community for creating and sharing illustrations and oekaki doodles. It sports a Flash web editor for making your own works on the site itself or to reply to images and people in image form. Each image has the process of the drawing saved where you can watch line by line of the image being created. The Pixiv owned site also has RSS feeds for all its members, new images, and the most recent popular. Unlike Pixiv you can browse the site freely without registration, but registration does mean having a Pixiv account. People and images can be bookmarked, as there isn’t a tagging or search system.
Works from Genji generally have a gang of these four or so characters and often times characters from GeGeGe no Kitaro and Akuma-kun. Works have a very rough appearance, layered hair, and well-chosen colors. Often times there will be subtle or not so subtle references to indie music or bands.
Another artist with a flawless sense of style in character designs. Lots of abstract and fantasy imagery and the Vocaloid twins Rin and Len with consistent use of soft colors. Most works keep it simple and limit the number of different colors.
Akuma-kun and GeGeGe no Kitaro characters set in much darker, violent, or suggestive themes. Many of the drawr images are sets that can be viewed together when you try select one of the images and those sets can be often times very dramatic.

I realize most blogs are doing some form of “12 days of Christmas” or whatever. I’m six days late, so I decided to try my hands at “12 things I didn’t know I could masturbate to” instead.
Before I discovered anime, I only masturbated to porn. Now I masturbate to figments of my imagination. Japan has this uncanny ability to anthropomorphize everyday objects into fap material in the course of one hour. And there really isn’t much I can not masturbate to. Every day, until Christmas, I will post two of something I might have masturbated to…
12. KFC Biscuits
This caught me off guard. I wasn’t ready to be assaulted by visions of a KFC product during my alone time in the shower. But here we are, and now I am ready to go.
What’s “guro” you ask? One image search through google will provide you all the information you will ever have to know. Believe it or not, that was the most work-safe image I could find.
