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. ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
And now to bombard you with obnoxious links! Go here to order a copy of Rain - Volume 1 today! And then here to vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!
I CLAIMETH COMMENT VIRGINITY!
okaies, mabye they could be called Yuus?
...could be called Iis? :) pronounced like eyes. :P
Actually, I kinda like that one. Very different from all the ones I had in mind. ^_^
My brain logic:
Nintendo Wii U
makes a Mii
(Flip the W in Wii to make an M for Mii)
Funtendo Yuu U
(Flip the Y in Yuu to make an... Auu?)
...hmmm. Flip the U to make a lowercased N...to make a Nuu?)
A Gii, Jii(Gee), Dii, Vii, Kii(Key)
:D are any of these good ideas?
I also like Yuus and Iis too ^^
I think it would be called a "Mai" ("my").
Yeah, Yuu's are the obvious choice. "You need to make a little 'Yuu' in the setup!" It's perfect!
Edit: And then the Miiverse could be called Yuuniverse, and it also matches up with the whole 'mii = me' thing. And the title of the system comes into play with Yuu = you, and us = all of our little yuu's playing together! =D
Hmm... Well I was thinking, Wii (we) is 1st person plural while Yuu (you) is 2nd person singular. So then the opposite of Mii (me) 1st person singular would be Yall (you all) 2nd person plural. But I think I like the suggestion above me of Mai better.
How about "Nii" <- close to the original yet different and can be seen as a monty python reference :D
That avatar has such an ugly face
X3 I love Aunt Fara. I wish I had an aunt like her lol
Okay, now he's just being an ass.
Rain and I share the same birthday! :)
