So… after roughly six or seven weeks of voting, it seems that 25% of our readership is female (obviously allowing a margin of error for folks who voted for what they wanted, as opposed to what they are. lol). I am honestly unable to articulate exactly WHAT I think about that. When I developed this series, I really had no idea where I was going with it. When I proposed the idea to tira-chan, I had nothing but a bunch of random little “episodes” snapped out of the lives of the characters, but no story, no plot and I hadn’t even considered making it an “extremely R-rated not-quite-porn” series. I just knew I wanted to do something with a genie girl and a hapless guy and do all kinds of crazy shit a la Urusei Yatsura/Those Annoying Aliens in true Rumiko Takahashi style. Maybe it’s the touching on that, the blatant homage to that work and the immortal appeal of I Dream of Jeannie and the other 60’s classic Bewitched that brings in the women. Granted, it’s not half or more, but a lot more than I expected. And to each one of you ladies keeping an eye on us, whatever your motivation, I hope you continue to enjoy our screwing around here. It’s very much appreciated. And it pleases me to no end. I like to think it means I am on the right track here and made the right decision to go the way I did and chose the artist I chose.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my rambling.
