Comic for Monday, Jan 12, 2015


Posted January 12, 2015 at 1:12 am

I've had Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on my mind recently. This is mostly because of the Fairy spell in the game that allows Link to turn into what appears to be a girl fairy and fly around all over the place. I'm sure the game has other merits, like... Um... Well, the special jumping sword moves were cool. And it had neat music. And who doesn't want to blobby goo monsters in video games?

At some point during this thinking and ranting and sending messages to various people at Nintendo telling them that they need to bring the spell back, it occurred to me that it would be fun if Nanase could change up the outfits on her fairy dolls. A somewhat tangential thought, sure, but I somehow wound up there, and so this comic happened.

Tangential or not, the Zelda II aspect of the thought process remains relevant, as her pose in the final panel is based on NES era Zelda fairy sprites. The outfit MIGHT be similar? It's hard to tell with 8-bit sprites.

Anyway, I want high-fives for my restraint regarding exposition with this comic. No lengthy explanation of what outfits are acceptable, no math, etc. Just "picture a simple outfit" and BAM. Fairy doll Grace.

Granted, part of the reason for that was less choice and more simple panel space, BUT I STILL DESERVE HIGH-FIVES.
