Diehard Webcomic Fans Invent Fake Anime

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 NEXT
 

UM, HELLO, PLEASE CLICK THIS IF YOU LIKE HOMESTUCK. PAY NO REGARD TO WHO CREATED THE GROUP, OR THE FACT THAT THEY MIGHT BE TRYING TO EARN YOUR ATTENTION.

As a Homestuck fan, and pretty dedicated one: this really isn't something that I like. I would not watch it if it came out.

This is a fad. The Homestuck fandom goes through fads so often, especially with the revealing of new characters.

I keep looking up Homestuck episode 1 on Youtube but I'm not finding anything...

Well, Hussie did say he would get into a different medium after Homestuck, so maybe a cartoon version could be made eventually.

As for this, kinda just looks like a bunch of random fanart based around the webcomic, but I could see an amateur fanime (is that a word?) being made.

I am sad that I was not made aware of this sooner.I must rectify this and watch it(Even if it is fake)!Followed by ritual seppuku(Not really)!

And this is why the Homestuck fandom is still playing second fiddle to the Touhou fandom. Whereas one makes fake screenshots of an anime, the other just makes an anime. In fact, I believe we made two. :P

Okay, so there's technically four, but no one likes to talk about the other two. And the designs on the first one I linked kinda suck, but still...

Note: I tease, I tease. I like Homestuck too. You guys are cool. Please don't kill me. ;)

M0rp43vs:
Also with Touhou being the crossover powerhouse that it is, I'm rather surprised that there aren't that many crossovers with Homestuck.

I can only think of one image offhand, along with some other stuff on KimikoMuffin's site. Like the concept of Flandre auspistizing Flandre and Flandre. Since I don't follow Homestuck and have a weak grasp on the concept, that particular idea broke parts of my brain I wasn't sure I had.

Azaradel:
Why is this considered newsworthy?

It's one of the most obnoxious Tumblr bandwagons to plague the Homestuck fandom in ages.
And that's fucking saying something.

This isn't something planned, it's just the result of the Tumblr part of the Homestuck fandom bursting with people who will jump at any bandwagon they see in the hope of getting as many likes/reblogs as possible without having to do much creative thinking themselves.
"Someone came up with a popular idea? MUST COPY. MUST COPY. MUST COPY."

This. Seriously, they're not "bored" either. This is just a giant-ass bandwagon that most people have jumped on. This "don't let the homestuck fandom get bored" thing pisses me off, because it's only been a week since the last update. One of the comic's biggest flash movies took nearly two months of no updates to make and absolutely nothing of note happened during that time.

From what I understand, we do have a third one.
We just don't... talk about it as much

If MLP:FiM doesn't make it past the dreaded 65-episode mark, the fans will make S4 themselves, mark my words.

What do you expect with a cartoon that has Dayman (Daymare) ruling a nation?

(I know the It's always sunny in Philidelhia/MLP joke has been done before, but I came with this when I first saw the cartoon and have been waiting for an opportunity).

Captcha: finagle's law

Great, so the net is going to be overrun with badly made porn of Nightmare Moon raping Derpy.

Wait, never mind, it had an error.

Captcha: all dancing

So there's going to be a musical about Nightmare raping Derpy?

It's Always Sunny in Fillydelphia.

(as a side note, Ponyville was called Fillydelphia in Lauren Faust's original scripts/pitch)

I did enjoy the shot at Lilith Slave being crazy, very subtle!

Soviet Heavy:
How long before they make an anime of Homestuck fans spitting into a bucket and filming it at a Pizza Hut?

...a bucket...?

CG: I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'D ASSOCIATE US WITH THIS SORT OF LOW-RENT PORNOGRAPHY.

carcinoGeneticist's computer has exploded from sheer rage.

LOL US HOMESTUCKS RITE XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD LE BUCKETS AND FUCKASSES XDDDDDDD

and so the fruity rumpus asshole factory starts churning its gears

Would it have killed you guys to just say "Homestuck" and not "a webcomic"? i think it's known well enough and if somebody asks what homestuck is you can just say:

Huh? He was talking about Touhou fans in general, Lilith is just one of them.

Normally I wouldn't care too much about this. Not like the Homestuck fandom hasn't come up with some stupid ideas and ran with them before. This would just be another one of those and there's no reason for me to be upset about it.

The only thing that irks me though is the poor 'translation' into anime. Once again, the 'fervent' fandom can't seem to get their favorite characters down right. No, they aren't all a bunch of kawaii anime characters uguu~. They are mostly a bunch of dysfunctional assholes of different measures.

I find it more interesting that the Homestuck fans are trying to make an actual Homestuck game.
Don't know if that's still going on though.

>.> I'm surprised there HASN'T been any fan made eps yet

ether way.

fake screen shots: meh, any one could do that

full, fan made eps of a show: far more impressive, and much harder to pull off well

thusly i give the win to the touhou fans on this

I'm pretty sure that at least SOME of those kawaii uguu~ screenshots are parodying the parts of the fandom that do think the characters are like that, as well as parodying anime in general.

At least, I hope so.

I don't get it.

This is welcomed and praised by everyone, yet if one person makes a Pony thread its all "HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE MOTHER FUCKERS!" and "Fucking losers".

I am so confused by what the Escapist deems "right" and "wrong".

I would hardly call this "everyone".

John Funk:

If you aren't familiar with web series MS Paint Adventures - in particular its latest installment, Homestuck - then know this: The Homestuck fandom is second only to fans of Japanese shooter series Touhou Project as the craziest and most devoted fandom on the internet.

... really?

Do they have their own convention? Albums? ISLAND?

I don't think there are any major Homestuck conventions as of yet, but yes, we do have albums.
Jade's island could arguably be called a particularly "Homestuck" island, but I don't know what island you're referring to.

Someone's trying to raise like 600 million to buy an island and name it Equestria.

Loop Stricken:

Convention? Check.

Albums? Check.

Island? Why yes, I do believe it counts, so check.

=Holds up big sign that says "STILL NUMBER ONE!"=

captcha: look away. But I don't want to! :(

I was referring to this Homestuck nonsense, not your Touhou nonsense.

Also get your people to draw more Rumia in glasses. It's adorable.

... in fact just glass ALL the characters.

Was anyone else expecting something along the lines of John McClane punching out Sephiroth or getting in a gun fight with a Roy Mustang turned Hans Gruber?

I know, I was just joining in on the fun. :P

And putting in Touhou+Glasses into most imageboards will get you all the glasses pictures you need.

I KEEP THROWING MONEY AT THE MONITOR

BUT NOTHING IS HAPPENING

That's one thing that Touhou has is the incredible dedication to the series. Sure you're closer than anyone else, Homestuck, but you fail to realize how fucking crazy us Touhou fans are.

We are at the point where if you can think of a game, there is more than likely a Touhou spinoff/mod for said game. If there is an anime opening, there is more than likely a Touhou reskin of it. The Leviathan that is the Touhou fanbase is a giant pool of complete obsession that it can, at times, make a brony shiver.

Also, like 90% of our characters are borderline gods so they can kick your characters' ass.

After reading these comments, I am sure of one thing. I am staying faaaaaar away from anything related to this Homestuck thing or whatever Touhou is. Obsessive fandom is a scary thing, and I want no part of it.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go keep working on my Castlevania themed sonic screwdriver while listening to Clockwork Angels for the 10th time today.

I'll pass. I know this fandom too well, and an anime for MSPA would be riddled with John/Dad slash fiction or similar. Its really bizzarre. Think Im wrong? My ex-girlfriend is obsessed with it.

I am both frightened and intrigued. I still won't go back and read any more of that dreadful time sucker, but I find the premise of a Homestuck anime hilarious. And a Homestuck fanime horrifying.

Side scrolling shooters have a certain type of fan.

Touhou is about as important to me, as is what color(ure?) of your underwear is. \

AKA: Even if I knew the answer, I wouldn't give a shit. Explaining this thing has no point.

Actually a real Homestuck anime episode has been in production since about May.
