A while ago I had a series of random crossover ideas for Akemi, just different girls in the Studio I was considering drawing her with. I didn’t, and none of those characters are in this Ask, but I thought it’d be fun to pair her with some cute tomboyish girls like her daughter. I had a few characters I thought could fit for this Ask, but I decided to settle on two I haven’t drawn for a minute. Kei’s the tough one of Dirty Pair, and a very old crush I’ve only drawn a couple times. Kagura from Azumanga Daioh is… well, also an old crush, who I haven’t drawn since the CrossOver Yuri series back in the day. Neither’s exactly like Tomo, but both probably fit into the same category as her.
I was planning for the next MomSwap entry to be from Infinity Train, but I stared watching “Tomo-chan is a Girl” and got distracted. I was hesitant about this series, ’cause the premise feels pretty dated, but I liked Tomo’s design a lot and decided to try it based solely on that. I did end up liking the show, and there’s other pairings I’d like to draw from it eventually, but I decided to jump on this mother/daughter pairing ASAP.
