Do Not Pass Ahegao

Is Grey's only signature in the corner of the paper supposed to signify that he's the one who draw it, or that Cory didn't want his name on this piece of "art". The same can be said about the interesting tags at the bottom.

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I saw the title of this strip, but you managed to outdo it with that.

I still think that the Nvidia dick joke was the best one though.

Now, to quote everyone's favorite British petrolhead, "I went on the internet this week, and I found this!".

Zhukov:

I didn't get it either until I googled "ahegao".

If you plan on following me down this path to enlightenment, don't do it work. Just sayin'.

LazyAza:
I certainly have no idea at all what this comic is referencing.

Yup.

No idea.

Same here. Never in my life have I heard of this ahego.

... that said, doesn't the girls reaction imply she also knows where that art style is from? And to know is to be damned.

Guess I should have made my self aware false-claim with my comment there more obvious. Because I was joking guys haha

See I'm a digtial artist and a long time anime watcher who's basically been exposed to/aware of hentai and its many tropes since the late 90s. I assume Grey also grew up on the likes of Urotsukidoji and whatnot and like me saw that kind of thing at a wayyy too early age due to very ignorant parents haha. Or maybe he just stumbled on to the wrong kind of image gallery at some point like many people do. :p

Zen Bard:
Aaah hentai. Giving Japanese males sexual dysfunction since 1997.

(Or so I've been told...)

You've been told wrong.............. It's been around much longer than that. Osamu Tezuka made sexy mouse art way back in the 60s after he got big on Astro Boy. And before that it was on woodblock paintings, although those ones were a bitch to animate...

This is fantastic, and terrible. I feel all dirty for getting this joke.

I wish I could read that, the curiosity is killing me.

The band thing at the bottom is just advertising Attack on Titan. I don't thing that such a scene is actually in the manga. Sorry to disappoint you.

I'm ashamed of myself that I knew what was coming the second I read the title.

I couldnt remember if Ahaegao was the word for that, or that hair spike people in anime have sometimes

Funny. I have it on reasonable authority that I can look pretty weird if you get me excited enough in... that way
Not that this is an easy thing to accomplish, so don't get your hopes up. :p

On the other hand, I am prone to panic attacks that bear some resemblance to seizures. So... There is that. XD

Still... That... Drawing. Wow. -_-

Dirty Cop James funs:
First, the onii-chan thing, now Ahegao? Grey. Grey. Grayh. Stawp it. Stawp it. Fookin' /d/eviant.

VanQ:
Well Ahegao was the last word I ever expected to see on The Escapist front page. Good job on managing that.

I bet 2 years worth of semen flowed endlessly out of Grey post-writing this comic. (Muffin for whomever gets the reference besides VanQ)

~shudders~ gahh! No. No! Not that again! Please!? It doesn't even make sense! It... The logic... Stuff. Hurts... My... Brain... >_<

After reading all the comments, I'm not sure I dare googling Ahegao to figure out wtf it is...

Just look at the picture and think about in what situation a person might make a face like that. It's pretty much that.

Erin being over Randy Pitchford, strangling him to death? Tell me she wouldn't enjoy it that much!

Darth_Payn:
OK guys, we get it, you don't like anime, manga, or their fans. This is your way of saying it's a slow day.

Seems like every Critical Miss has at least 1 person who misunderstands the comic. You are today lucky winner.

Anyway as someone who watches much much hentai I am surprised I've never heard the word Ahegao. That'll be my evening sorted out that's for sure.

You misunderstand my comment.

Sexy cartoons and sexualizing kiddie cartoons goes all the way back to the 30's (think Betty Boop).

However, the sexual dysfunction and awkwardness plaguing modern Japanese males as an indirect result of this has been fairly recent. Okay...maybe it's not exactly 1997. But it's late 20th/early 21st century.

No, I've been told right. Most of the current sexual problems in modern Japan that have been credited to (or blamed on) hentai start right around the late 90's or early 00's.

"1997" seemed like a good place to split the difference.

Sexy cartoons have been around since man could put pen to paper...or possibly even ink to cave walls.

That's Ahoge.

It's a more popular term in hentai-manga websites that use more tags. Image boards like danbooru as well. Grey keeps sharing in twitter the hentai he reads in fakku, and that also uses these kinds of tags to better list the niches and all.

Thats the one. Given Greys usual history, I was leaning more towards the former before opening this

...I'm curious, but I'm too uncomfortable to google that.

Huh, so that's what that particular brand of expression is called.

Actually, a good way to spot an anime fan is to find the guy who's making jokes about all of the obscure references that nobody except an anime fan (or someone that spends a lot of time on 4chan) would know about.

After years of reading this comic, I can tell at least ONE of these guys is a huge weeb. I just can't for the life of me ascertain who....

Eh, who'm I kidding? It's Grey.

Well, I feel like I've learned things today. After searching ahegao in google images, not knowing it was porn, of course. Oh well.

As for my browsing history:

Learn something new(the word that is) every day in life. Including lots of things I didn't think I would.

That sounds weird. I've generally heard Japan's sexual problems blamed on their crazy work culture, as well as the fact that women in a relationship will usually be passed over for career advancement because it is assumed that at some point they will want to take maternal leave.

Ahegao is the O-face, ahoge is that hair spike thing. "Ahe" is an onomatopoeia for the kind of sounds people make in ecstasy while "gao" is simply "face". "Aho" means "idiot" while "ge" is a hair strand so ahoge can be translated as "idiot hair" which signify a character who might be innocent or not too bright.

*Files ahegao under things I regret googling*

I am eagerly waiting for the comic that references NTR.

The manga was done by an assistant of Isayama Hajime, the creator of Attack on Titan. Apparently when asked to do an advertisement band for the manga, he decided to troll a little...

Ok, I've never heard of this word but after reading some of the comments here I am now too scared to do it.

Blazing Hero:

Kaamos:
If your partner doesn't have an epileptic fit you're doing it wrong.

Nah, I am pretty sure you can get the same effect with a car battery and jumper cables.

kinky, aren't we?

Internet is amazing thing, you learn new and so useful things every day :-), never thought there would be a word for it.

Huh Kinky? But those soldiers from Guantanamo Bay told me that this is what people like....

Gotta admit, had the heartiest laugh in a good while from this strip.

And then felt terrible for knowing what was coming.

And then felt good again after seeing how many people had to google it, and their reactions.

I think that's definitely a contributing factor. When Japan was poised to become THE economic superpower in the late 80's and early 90's, that was probably true. Their crazy work culture pushed people to put careers before family. It also led to a lot of people literally working themselves to death and having heart attacks at a young age.

Recently though, it seems as women have become more independent, the men have become more repressed. There have been more cases of men marrying their anime "waifus" or spending time on hentai instead of going out an meeting real women.

But I admit, most of my information is second hand.

Any of our Escapees either from or living in Japan care to comment? If I'm off base, set me straight.

Ah, they mean something like what happened in Watamote!

Right?

... right?...

Reminds me of an old, odd game for Amiga/Windows I'd heard about, Apidya. Designed to look Japanese (including a Japanese title screen) the game was actually developed in Germany, and starred a man cursed to be a wasp avenging his murdered girlfriend. But either by incompetence or brilliance, the girlfriend's name was Yuri.
