The T-shirt I’m wearing was made by the very awesome Bkwyrm. And now it’s time to pay a visit to… the doujinshi-ka’s inbox! Erin: Okay, we’re doing another double-header today. First off, a question I’ve been asked a few times, regarding a certain anime scene (from Order 07): Email: There was a short black and… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: What’s the deal with the green scene?/What race is Integra?
After I posted this, Lorena pointed out that there are werecats in mythology. Jan McNeville discussed a type of cat demon (the aku-sambiki) in Japanese mythology which could take on human form – but retained its ears. And later, Word Of God came out to say that Schrödinger is a catboy, created by Doc. Erin:… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: What are Schrödinger and Rip?
Erin: After explaining that there was no known explanation for the “green scene” from Order 07, I got a ton of different theories in my inbox. So I thought I’d share them with you – plus, y’know, my opinions, because those are what you really want to hear, right? Email: Alex’s uniform looks like the… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: The Green Scene, Revisited
Erin: It’s National Answer Questions About Heinkel Day! Email: [Previously] you depicted Heinkel as blonde. Did something happen…that caused the change in Heinkel’s hair color? Erin: Well, no. But the truth of the matter is, we don’t know Heinkel’s hair color at all. There are no known color pictures of Heinkel; in the black-and-white manga… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox – Heinkel’s Hair and Accent
Note from The Future: Millennium’s first appearance in-universe is the 2005 Christmas storyline. The last chapter of the main Hellsing manga was published on September 30, 2008. Non-clandestine encounters between Hellsing and Millennium start appearing in Shine storylines at the start of 2009. Erin: I get this one a lot… Email: Will Millennium show up… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Will Millennium Show Up?
Enrico: Pulling another double-header today, because these questions have pretty short answers. Email: Do you know the names of those two guys from the anime who wear derby hats and carry umbrellas everywhere? Erin: Laurel and Hardy? Seriously, though, I don’t. They’re in the credits as “Messenger,” so I don’t think the animators bothered to… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Laurel and Hardy, vampires in daylight
This site is now defunct, and thank goodness for that.
Oh, one that I forgot – hentai. A very important one, because Hirano-san used to draw hentai manga. (It means “perverted”, i.e. pornography.) This strip is especially for my foreign readers, and for those of you who aren’t into manga/anime in general as much as some fans. Email: I’m from Germany, and for that I… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Japanese
UPDATE: For an extended explanation of what this text actually means, walk this way. Email: I lent the third manga to my friend the other day and…He asked me what the phrase on Alucard’s coffin meant. “The bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.” To be honest, I’m stumped…… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: The Ripley Scroll
This strip is completely out-of-date: we have much more information on Enrico’s backstory these days, and Heinkel in the Hellsing manga is a different person from Heinkel in the Cross Fire side stories (where this image is taken from). Erin: Here’s a good question: Email: Was Enrico meant to be a priest from birth? Erin:… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Young Enrico
