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…
GAINAX released another short of Gurren Lagann Parallel Works. This video being the fourth. This one features a wild west theme and reversal of good guy vs. bad guy rolls. Viral must be having a growing base of fans. Gurren Lagann Parallel Works is a new series of nine shorts related to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Trip Trek is an online anime that can pretty much be seen for free. The series is by BBAnime and can be seen in full on it’s official site or various stream sites they uploaded themselves. Only thing is the site only offers it in Japanese with Japanese subtitles, but they do offer Trip Trek games. The English versions were removed for some reason. The story is of a girl named Zocco who travels and searches for her mother. She’s not alone, the pink companion Minime was crafted my Zocco’s mother to help her. Trip Trek is a Flash animation, so don’t expect any flashy effects.
This episode features the two having to stop at a place to eat when they were very hungry. Take extra care at who the past traveler was. More soup please.
