This started out just as me wanting to make a new banner for my Backloggery; but this time, I wanted something Rain-related. My goal: take the main teens and have them all playing video games in some form. It makes sense since most of these characters are geeks, and keeps the appropriate gaming theme to fit in on Backloggery. ^_^

We have Rain and Gavin with classic Funtendo controllers, so what else could possibly be playing but Fighter Frogs? But will they actually win this time? Eh, probably not. XD

Between them, we have Kylie on the floor playing a Vi- er... let's call it a Laetitia (perhaps doing some grinding in Superego 4 Platinum?).

As for Emily and Ana, they aren't really into gaming. Ana may not be interested in playing herself, but certainly seems absorbed in watching it. Emily meanwhile takes up Rain's offer to check out Kaminari (and then takes up Puddle's offer to adore him).

Immediately beside the couch, we have Maria and Chanel being so freaking adorable as always. I figure they're probably trading Minimon.

Finally, I had trouble placing Rudy, so I put him in the back trying out Rain's Yuu Us. But Drew is hovering over his shoulder, hoping to get a turn (and you can imagine how much Rudy loves that).

Do keep in mind that this is not canon. It's just a random pic for my gaming site profile banner (that I might also adapt for my personal Facebook page), with which I decided to include the main characters of my comic (uh... I guess Drew's a main character?). So don't bother looking for any deeper meanings to anything. ;P

Also! This is [probably] the last post before Chapter 23 begins on Monday (Sept. 1st), next week. I hope you've enjoyed this and all of the random doodles I've attempted to occupy you with lately. Here's hoping it helped you feel the hiatus a little bit less than usual. ^_^

My first thought when I saw this was "Drew's a main character?" Then I checked the comics and saw that you don't sound so sure yourself. xD So does this mean he'll have a bigger role in future comics?

...Also just realized, we never did see the resolution to his little meeting with Ky, did we?

He basically is a main character, for all intents and purposes (he represents the "Questioning" demographic). It's just hard to see that considering there are some secondary characters who've had more screen time than him. I'm hoping that will change in the future though. ^_^

I thought Rudy was playing a Game Gear. It was the only video game anything I had growing up. It was great--Sega (always have had a bad taste about Nintendo), portable (though I always plugged it in--those things were battery HOGS) and color (Game Boy always seemed inferior in that regard). It affirmed my belief that it was great when Nintendo came out with the Game Boy Advance (the Game Boy Color was awful--so little color actually in that one) and it was like a slightly lesser Game Gear (graphics not as good, but it was more portable, being a bit smaller).

But I guess you were doing take-offs on newer systems, of which I'm a Sony fan through and through (never got over my dislike of Nintendo as a whole, though I acknowledge they have some fun games).

What is Ky playing? I can't figure it out!

Ky looks to be playing a fantasy version of a PSP.

The strangest thing is, as I read the words "Superego 4 Platinum", the opening of Persona 4 started playing in my head, but it took me a while to realise why. The subconscious is a scary thing indeed (also, this is probably my favorite parody name in the comic yet, but keep em coming)
