What on earth did they do to Nakai’s face here? He normally just looks like a regular slightly tubby bloke. Here he looks like the star of a rape-themed hentai. Not that very many character’s faces remained on model in this episode anyway.
New female character
If you can draw you eyes away from Nakai now resembling a frog, we have ourselves a new female character, who I already prefer infinitely to Miho. My opinion of her was already better than most female characters in that her head didn’t look like an egg nor did her hair resemble a parasite sucking out her brains. Which may explain why she’s the only female character so far to have something resembling a brain. Although it would be nice if someone came up with criticism for manga that didn’t revolve around it being in the wrong publication. You’d swear from the way these bunch talk about manga that anyone could write the stuff. You just need to find the right publication for your work. And hey, if none of them work, you could always write a cell phone novel. They publish any old crap. And if even that fails, simply write yourself into a story where a vampire falls in love with you and watch the publishers line up.
Whining always works
Bakuman failing to keep the faces on model round 3. Either that, or someone has replaced Nakai’s eyes with dices. No wonder he looks so pissed off. It’s got nothing to do with the fact a famous musician wants to write manga. Which in itself is pretty laughable. The idea of a singer famous enough to be in the paper announcing midway through a concert that he’s in the running for a manga beginners competition is ridiculous. Maybe if it was mentioned in passing or something, but he made such a big deal out of it, showing the crowd the pages and everything. Not that complaining about it will do anything. Fukuda has always been a whiny git, as has Saiko, but they really should know better than to complain about it. New girl is probably scoffing at the lot of them now. Their whining won’t change the mind of the
Jump Jack staff one bit. Get back to work you lazy mangaka bums.
More off model faces
Hattori’s facial features move about his face every time he talks. I swear in one scene his mouth was taking up half of his face alone. His eyebrows grow and shrink in size too. JC Staff stopped trying long ago.
