My Hero Academia

July ’18 Patreon One-Shot

Here is the One-Shot comic page selected by my Patreon supporters last month. This is another one of those “four unconnected panels” ones, but it did give me the excuse to finally do some Assassination Classroom work, as well as use Clementine again in something other than a Character Ask. Hope everyone likes the pic.

Also, I did another Q&A video for my Patrons recently. Several of the questions in this one related specifically to Patreon issues, but I still thought some of you might find the video interesting so I’m sharing it here.

Studio Tour 2 – Zangya/Jiro

So here’s the second installment of my “Studio Tour” series, where we take a look around the imaginary Near Hentai Studios and the action that goes on there. This particular picture has a bit of a history, as originally this series was going to be focuses exclusively on Zangya paired with random characters, and this was going to be the first entry (because I really like Jiro and wanted to draw her again). When I adjusted the concept to be more about the studio as a whole, I pushed this one back to the second entry so I could do the introductory pic with Siat, Chi-Chi and C.C. Speaking of Siat, the green text box is meant to be her narrating to us, and that’s a late addition. I love context, and this context was originally just going to be in this text accommodating the picture, but I decided to add it into the picture itself last-minute.
The idea that Zangya would get close to the girls from My Hero Academia who are in the studio actually came about because of my Patreon Discord. You see, I teased this picture there a long while back, saying I was working on a yuri pic of Zangya and a girl from MHA, but not who. This lead to a lot of guessing and speculation, and I realized I liked several of the potential pairings, so I decided to establish this connection so we can maybe get Zangya paired up with several different ladies from that series in later installments.

NHML – Shino Sosaki (Mandalay)

The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for July 2018 is Mandalay of the Wild, Wild Pussycats in My Hero Academia. When deciding what to do with her, I went back and forth on either something with her young nephew, Kota, or her teammates Pixie-Bob and Ragdoll. In the end I decided to do both, leading to an unusually crowded picture for an NHML entry. Mandalay gets to be the center of attention, since she’s the featured lady. I enjoyed all four of these characters during their time on the show, and I wouldn’t mind returning to them some time in the future.

With this entry released, it’s now time to start collecting nominations for next month. The rules are pretty simple, everyone gets one nomination of any female character they’d like, so long as I haven’t drawn her in the past year. Preferably she’ll be someone I’ve never drawn, but if it’s been over a year since the last time then that’s fine. She also cannot be a previous NHML winner, even if her win was over a year ago and I haven’t drawn her again since. Also this month I’m adding that she can’t be from the same franchise as the current winner. Last month’s was also from My Hero Academia, and I’d just like to avoid having the NHML get too repetitive. I will compile a list of all the nominees (visible on the side bar of this site), and on the first of August I will use an online randomizer to randomly pick one name from the list to draw some time during the month.

Usually I say you can nominate by commenting below or using my cBox, but during the weekend I’m posting this I am out of town visiting friends and going to a convention. This means I won’t be on as much and there’s a chance I’ll miss nominations made in the cBox. You’re still allowed to use it, of course, but if you’re nominating during the weekend that this post went up then you might be better off using the comments. Cheers!

Flexible Mina

I’m not sure where I got it in my head that Mina Ashido from My Hero Academia was, like, a gymnast or something. Maybe it’s just ’cause her superhero outfit kinda looks like 80’s workout clothes, but at some point I just started assuming she’d be the flexible type. So when I saw a girl in this pose I thought it’d be a cute excuse to draw Mina again. I don’t do solo pics often, but hopefully I can do more with her and a partner soon. It’d be fun to try out more gymnast-style poses.

NHML – Pop☆Step (Kazuho Haneyama)

So the Near Hentai Monthly Lady for June is Pop☆Step (Kazuho Haneyama) from My Hero Academia’s spin-off manga series Vigilantes: Illegals. I don’t actually know much about this manga or character, truth be told. I know she’s like a pop idol (though her civilian identity is a quiet mousy girl), and I know her quirk is jumping real good. I paired her up with Koichi, the main character of their stories, who I think is also an All Might fanboy like Midoriya is (since he wears an All Might hoodie). Anyway, I think Pop☆Step is cute and I hope you guys like the pic.

Now, if you’d like to nominate an entry for next month’s NHML, it’s easy! Anyone can nominate a character, but you only get one nomination. The rules are simple, all you have to do is name the character you’d like to nominate in the comments here or in the cBox on the side of the site. Characters nominated cannot be any female I haven’t drawn recently (it needs to have been at least a year since I’ve drawn her last, though preferably she’ll be someone I’ve never drawn). Nominations also cannot be a previous NHML winner. If you’re not sure if your nomination meets these requirements, that’s okay, just post them and if they don’t qualify I’ll reply and let you know so you can nominate someone else. I’ll compile a list of all the nominated characters on the sidebar of this site, and on the first of July I’ll run the list through a randomizer to select one winner that I’ll draw sometime during the month. 🙂

Studying Footjob

So in My Hero Academia, Deku has this little notebook where he writes down information on the superpowers of the people around him for studying purposes. The kanji floating around him translate to something like “mutter” and crop up while he mutters to himself about what he’s writing/reading. My original plan was to have him scribbling down notes on Kirishima’s hardening ability, but then I realized that I’d accidentally drawn him reading instead of writing… I also didn’t have any idea what he’d actually be saying, so I decided to just have him reading the notebook instead. Probably he already has notes on Krisihima’s quirk and is just reviewing while studying the effect with his feet.

Earphone Jack Full Nelson

So this is the Hearing Hero “Earphone Jack”, Kyoka Jiro. She’s one of the students at U.A. High School in My Hero Academia, and one of the more prominent characters I haven’t drawn yet from that series. Honestly it’s just because most of the MHA content I’ve done has been decided by other people (either through commission or Patreon rewards), because Earphone Jack is one of my favorite girls in the series. I love the deadpan snarker types, especially with female characters, and I think her design is super cute. However, since I don’t really have any other characters I like to pair her with just yet, I decided I’d do this quick pic pairing her with an anon just so I could make sure I’ve drawn her at least once. I wouldn’t mind drawing her again sometime soon, possibly paired with another actual character, but we shall see.

March ’18 Patreon One-Shot

Here is last month’s One-Shot comic, as selected by my supporters over on Patreon. I suspect this pairing was inspired in part by the memes and jokes around the idea that Deku’s hairstyle is like a cross between Gon and Killua’s (Killua’s style with Gon’s color). Regardless, the boys had a good time with him here, and mark another of Near Hentai’s top sluts off their checklist.

Also, here’s the tenth installment of my video series looking back at the superhero world and characters I built when I was younger:
