The fourth episode of Golden Boy is focused on a swim instructor at a public pool. Ayuko Hayami is a tall, intimidating woman. In the episode, Kintaro has one or two fantasies of her as a dominatrix, but since those are only in his head I decided to not go in that direction with this episode’s pic. I figured they could just have some fun in the shallow end of the pool, and Kintaro could wear his little swim cap from the episode.
Continuing the new tradition I started last year, for Christmas this year I want to take a little look at the annual Near Hentai Studios Christmas Party. A couple of these panels were ideas I had last year but couldn’t do, either because I ran out of space or because the character(s) I wanted to use hadn’t publicly debuted yet. Others are just ideas off the top of my head this year, and hopefully we got a fun mix of appeals. Also we get to see our 2023 Studio Santa again, and I immediately had this idea for how Scorpia would work in this role, which I think is fun. At any rate, I hope most of you can enjoy at least one of these panels, and I’m already looking forward to trying out more ideas next year!
Noriko is perhaps the least focused on of the Golden Boy girls. Most of the women Kintaro meets and interacts with have big, loud personalities. Noriko is the biggest exception to this, being a quiet and shy daughter of an udon restaurant owner who is being manipulated by a more confident and outgoing man who serves as the episode’s antagonist. Since she’s a quiet girl who has an unassuming appearance and is into things like flower arranging, she’s really overshadowed by many of the other women. I’m fond of her, though, mostly for how sincere, genuine and earnest she is in her affections. I know there’s some popular ladies coming up that people are probably looking forward to me getting to, but I enjoyed giving Noriko a small spotlight here in this pic.
It’s been ages, but I finally got around to covering the second pic in my planned Golden Boy series. This series is meant to cover each of the six episodes of the series by pairing Kintaro up with the girl(s) of each episode. The series stalled for two reasons. One is, I was torn on whether I should do a second pic for the first episode, focusing more on Madame President. I decided not to for now, but I might go back and draw her and Kintaro one-on-one eventually. The second snag was that episode two, and its main girl Naoko, are pretty easily my least favorites of the bunch. However, I needed to push through and get this one done to get on to the girls I really love later in the series. While I don’t care much one way or the other for Naoko, I always thought her friend Yuka was really cute so I had to include her. Hopefully it won’t take seven years for me to get to episode three.
Here’s the second of the three-way tie for our second First Shoot poll, Faye Valentine! Faye actually has a tag on my site already, due to some old color work, but since I watched Cowboy Bebop well before I started doing hentai I just never got around to finishing a pic with her (although I did have a couple incomplete pics back in the day). Faye’s random partner is Kintaro Oe, the protagonist of Golden Boy. I feel bad I never got back to the series of pics I had planned for him, but maybe some day. Even though it’s randomized, I kinda like this pairing as Faye would’ve felt right at home with the other ladies of Golden Boy, I think.
It took me a while to finish this one; I think I kept putting it off due to the number of characters. For those who don’t know, these ladies are from the first episode of Golden Boy, a classic ecchi anime and one of the pioneers of the genre. I loved Golden Boy when I was younger, but despite being a classic series there seems to be very little art ever made of it. Presumably this is because the show itself is so risque already, but I’d like to make a contribution to fixing that.
Every now and then I’d like to do a Golden Boy pic focusing on a different episode. There were six episodes, each focusing on a different beautiful woman. The woman would (usually, not always) look down on Kintaro at the start, but inevitably fall in love with him by the end of the episode. However, by that point he would have moved on, as he lives the life of a wanderer. Since Kintaro never got with any of the girls, my pics are going to pair him up with them. 🙂 Pretty simple, right?
These are the lovely ladies of T.N. Software, a software development company Kintaro temps at in the first episode. This pic is titled “1a” because I decided to fit all of the women of that episode in, but the focus of the plot was on the blonde in the middle (only referred to as Madame President; the other girls are credited as Employee A, Employee B, etc.). Eventually I want to do a 1b focusing more on her, preferably with her famous bouncy tits on full display. I haven’t decided yet if I want to do that pic before or after doing the other five episodes, but we’ll see.
In other news, I plan to update Space Emperor Slut, Special Training and Titans Tower Nights very soon. All three should be updated sometime this week. I don’t know if I prefer working on the pages all at once or one at a time, but I thin it will be exciting to have three updates close together regardless.
