Akano's Blog


Fourteen years ago...

Posted by Akano , in Comics, Life May 09 2018 · 257 views
When I first came to this site, I was very much a lurker. My brothers and I had gotten into BIONICLE from its beginning in 2001, and we eventually stumbled on this site in the early, awkward days of the World Wide Web. It was here that I saw the creative output of the fandom – sprite comics, artwork, MOCs, comedies, epics, and much more.

Fourteen years ago, I became a part of that creative output with the premiere of Akano's Comics.

It's been six years since I made a comic (sorry, everyone, grad school happened; I do want to make more, though!), but my creative outputs didn't stop. I made set reviews and Equation of the Day (which I'm still working on, I promise!).

Thank you, everyone, for being my first audience. Now that I'm a professor, I'll have many, many more, but you were the first to truly see the crazy inner workings of my mind. Thanks for sticking with me, and thanks for helping me improve. You guys helped someone who stumbled to craft paragraphs become an author. You helped someone who enjoyed comedy but couldn't quite formulate a joke become a half-decent comedian.

Here's to more creative output.

The other day I decided to look at my comics from start to finish to remind myself of where I started and how far I've come to get to the comics I have today, and I have determined the following.

I sucked in the beginning. I mean, I was awful! Did I really actually think some of those comics were post-worthy? Holy Mukau!

Seriously, go over to my topic and read the first couple comics. Then, cry in a corner. For several hours. That's what I did. :P

In unrelated news, I've been toying with the idea of voicing some of my comics in a sort of strange animated-comic sort of way. Would anyone anywhere think this would be entertaining? KK may even have a role. :P

Comic And Question

Posted by Akano , in Comics, Life Jul 02 2012 · 487 views
Akanos Comics, Productivity
New comic is up! It covers the subject of learning new things.

Now, I have a question to pose to you. My friends were talking about being productive with their evenings (both are fellow physics grad students), and I had mentioned that I had felt really productive lately due to the fact that I made two reviews (one of which no one has commented in yet. show it some love!) and finished my latest comic. Then they replied, "I wouldn't really call that productive; you just do that for fun."

To be fair, my one friend was working on a paper she's trying to get published, but I feel I have to defend myself. While I do enjoy writing these set reviews and my comics (which I'm sure you all would love me to update more often), they do take honest work to produce since no one would want to read a review written by a twenty-three-year-old that looks like it was written by a four-year-old. I tried to convince them otherwise, but they kind of shrugged it off.

So, my question to you is this: do you think that working on these "hobbies" is not productive? Just curious on your opinion. :)

P.S. Please do not say anything hurtful about my friends, as they are my friends, and I do love them very much.
