Momiko by JohnSu Momiko by JohnSu
Here is Momiko's origin story: [link]
And here it is again, except in word form and in greater detail:

Momiko is a bright young girl with nice arms. Her arms are in fact so nice that an ambitious witch decides to steal them and use them as parts for a weird witch project: to create THE ULTIMATE GIRL.

In distress, Momiko runs to her father for advice. It is at this time that her father decides that she is ready to receive the age-old family heirloom - the ULTIMATE SIDEBURNS. She receives them somewhat reluctantly.

Using the sideburns as arm replacements, Momiko sets out to find the witch and reclaim her arms. But first she must fight her way through dangerous magical creatures, like the um, criminal Porklar.


Momiko is a character I made about a year ago, taking her name from Akari's nickname ("Momiko" = "Momiage" (sideburns) + "Ko" (child / girl)). Her armlessness is ripped off from x6suke's armless-robot-chan. I had been making a game starring her, but the play mechanics were kind of complicated and unintuitive, and I eventually got distracted by another idea.

Porklar was a totally improvised character, but I like him. He started off as just a normal pig, but it is amazing what a mask and knife can do for his image. I decided to leave his nostrils absent to see what kind of look he would have. I think I like it, even if it's not very snout-like.

The chick being thrown at him is just something left over from when I was developing the game and had placed chicks all over the floor to test picking up and throwing objects with Momiko's hair.

...You know, Momiko would make a really good shimeji...

Wait, if a witch was trying to make the ultimate girl, is she stealing body parts from other girls? Is there some girl out there without a head now?
Also, I know har arms would be awesome cause they have a much longer range and stuff, but wouldn't picking your nose feel weird? Imagine your nose filling with hair for a few seconds. That thought freaks me out.

When you hear that no animals were hurt in the making of something, the chickens don't count. They are test objects, enough said.

oh no! she's attacking duelist x [link] while he was using ragnarok [link] no less. and she stole his mask. good thing he has a backup-mask though.

but i guess its alright since he's fighting such a cool looking adversary.

I do believe Porklar deserves an anime of his own, seriously. The depth and complex characterization of this guy is just incredible; great work. Too bad he's getting beaten up by that Momiko villain person though; poor Porklar.
