Subtle joke in the first panel. XD

Anyway, I guess I should explain for anyone who hasn’t interacted with a Nintendo product in the last six years or so (as the Funtendo Yuu Us is a parody of the new Nintendo Wii U). In short, all their recent consoles have an feature where you build an avatar based on yourself called a Mii. With the Wii U, it is actually integral to setup, since each person’s account on the machine is designated via a Mii. So here we see Aiken thinking he’s helping but… yeah…

If I may say, I think Miis look kinda stupid. Especially when I draw them. And ESPECIALLY when I draw them in a manner that’s supposed to “resemble-them-mostly-but-is-off-a-little-kinda-intentionally”. You know, just keeping it off minutely so Nintendo doesn’t sue me (for instance, “Baby Bro’s” hairstyle is not actually available option; it’s similar, but not exact).

What does one call a parody Mii though? O_o

This is a lengthy blurb anyway, but I want close with a little fun fact: Since the Mii Maker screen always makes a point of having a “birthdate section”, I decided I should probably include it. But when I create characters for any story, I often have a zodiac sign in mind for them, but rarely come up with a specific birthdate. As it turns out, Rain’s a Virgo. I’ve known that forever. But the actual day wasn’t decided on until I drew this page. ^_^

Still in denial, but he's not trying to cut off all ties with Rain, and he IS setting up the Yuu Us, which WILL save time. Though he's making a male Mii-spinoff (maybe we can call it a Yuu?), this is still a pretty good sign. ^_^

Fortunately the avatars are pretty malleable, easy enough to fix.

It seem's like Akien thinks that "bonding" will make Rain go back to "normal". sigh . he just doesn't get it yet that this is who Rain is and how she has always been (personal experience trying to explain to people who do not understand)

Whee.

(That's a (very bad) pun as well as a sarcastic expression of emotions regarding drama.)

Haha, there's something about the way he did that that makes me laugh. Big bro's in denial XD
