It seems as if Makima’s taken over Denji’s explorations into sexuality since arriving in the Studio.
Just a friendly reminder that this Ask was done on SubscribeStar before Makima’s Studio debut.
Power, Denji and Aki all came into the Studio in different ways, and I’ve never gotten around to doing much with them. This is partly because, well, as much as I like their dynamic, I just don’t really ship any of them with each other. I figured this Ask would be a convenient way to explore how I see their dynamic in the Studio. They don’t share the same small apartment anymore, but I don’t think Power would vibe with that as easily as the boys. It’s very easy for me to picture her just crashing at either’s place, disrupting Aki’s nights with Himeno or tempting Denji while he tries to remain chaste. I think Makima will actually debut publicly before this Ask, but for Subscribers she’ll actually be debuting a month or so later. Regardless, I wanted to touch on their dynamic while Denji’s still saving himself.
I thought this Ask could be a fun way of continuing Denji’s ongoing struggle in the Studio. I think it makes sense that, with him choosing to avoid full-on sex for the time being, he’d develop a growing interest in other sexual actions. I thought he’d enjoy getting footjobs from two girls at once, and I decided to dig deeper into the Studio’s roster for his partners. Mariah’s a JoJo’s character that, like every JoJo’s character in the Studio, I drew on commission years ago when I took commissions regularly. Nagi is the lead girl of Kannagi, a show I enjoyed like a decade ago but don’t remember that well. She came in through the old CrossOver Yuri series, but has been in the 1 Club until now.
I mentioned in Makima’s NHML post that there were several upcoming Character Asks that were made before she debuted in the Studio, and this is the first of them. Please be patient and play along, knowing this happened months before that pic. Here’s what I wrote at the time:
So, I’ve had this notion for how Denji would act in the Studio for a while now. While it’s true he’s a desperate horndog virgin in the source material, he’s also completely dedicated to Makima (for better or for worse), and I don’t think that would just go away in the Studio. I can’t really say for sure if Makima ever will make it to the Studio, I assume she will eventually but she’s not a priority for me. Until then, though, Denji’s got his heart set on letting her be his first time.
So, Makima winning NHML puts me in an awkward position, but it’s one I was already in thanks to her involvement in one of the upcoming SubscribeStar Ongoing comics. This will be old news for Subscribers, but for people who only follow the public releases of my work, several Asks that haven’t gone public yet revolve around Makima not being in the Studio yet. So, for the record, canonically those Asks all happened before this NHML pic. As for the pic itself, I thought it’d be funny for Makima to work with Denji, but maybe not in the way he’d been envisioning.
With this post, NHML nominations for the month of June are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, Chainsaw Man. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on June 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
