Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts

Kaori Makimura Character Ask 2

I’m really happy Kaori seems to have picked up some fans and is getting questions for Asks. I was thinking about this question, trying to think of anyone around the Studio she might want to work with, but it wasn’t clicking quite right. When it comes to Kaori in yuri content, the main thing I want to do is pair her with other women from City Hunter. She mentions Saeko in her answer, but there were other one-episode characters I thought she’d pair well with, too. However, Asks can only use characters who’ve been established in my work already, and the question seemed to be more about the Studio setting, so I did pick someone to pair her with. Kipo’s showed up in a few other people’s Asks now, and I kinda find it easy to picture her making lots of friends and getting involved in people’s Asks like this. It just fits my understanding of her character and how she’d fit into an environment like the Near Hentai Studios. So I pulled her in here for this, partly for that, and partly because I liked the idea of a 1985 anime character scissoring a 2015 webcomic-turned-western cartoon character. They couldn’t be from much different worlds.

Maka Albarn Character Ask 2

I only have a passing knowledge of Soul Eater and its characters, but my understanding of Maka is that she’s fairly studious. I let Kipo be her study buddy here, ’cause Kipo also enjoys studying (particularly math and science), and like I mentioned when she showed up in Yoichi’s Ask, she’s the type of character who gets along with practically anybody. Also, this is just a pairing I don’t think anyone else would think to make, and I always enjoy exploring out-there relationships that can come about in the Studio environment.

Yoichi Yukimura Character Ask 2

I’m three for three on crack crossover pairings so far in Asks for this set!
So, I had some reservations about how to handle this one. Yoichi’s very gay in his game, but everyone in the Studio is pansexual. It doesn’t seem like to much of a stretch to me that he’d be willing to get with a girl here and there, but I don’t think he’d be into tsundere types. Yoichi himself is basically the tsundere of Camp Buddy, and it seems unlikely to me that a tsundere would be drawn to another… What Yoichi’s to embarassed to say in his answer here is he’s drawn more to people like Keitaro. Kipo here is a similar sort of protagonist, I think. Honest and compassionate, wanting to be friends with everyone, I think she’s got a lot in common with Keitaro, so I can see Yoichi connecting with her in a similar way. Also, her purple color scheme matches his well. I almost didn’t draw them actually fucking, just standing around, but in the end I decided to go ahead and go all-in with it. If any Camp Buddy fans are upset seeing Yoichi with a girl, all I can say is sorry, but I draw canonically straight characters in yaoi porn all the time. A tiny bit of the reverse won’t hurt anyone.

Kipo x Wolf

So I recently watched Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, a new Dreamworks series on Netflix. I really enjoyed it, and I was also immediately drawn to Kipo and Wolf, the main two female leads. Kipo’s the pinkish-purplish girl on top in this pic and the titular character, and Wolf is the younger girl underneath her. I think they’re both super cute, and I enjoyed seeing their friendship develop over the course of the first season. I don’t know how much I’ll be drawing them in the future, but I’m definitely open to the idea of returning to this series in the future.
