I was hoping to get to do some sort of follow-up to Nadeshiko’s debut comic, though I wasn’t sure if or when I’d be able to do so. This Ask is a convenient and quick way to do that, though I’m optimistic I’ll find some sort of way to pair these two up again in the future.
I recognize that the person who asked this question may have been looking for for, like… someone like Zangya, or someone who could femdom girl Gohan. However, I don’t know if I really see Gohan as someone who seeks out that sort of thing actively, but rather just rolls with it if she likes whomever the other woman is. If Gohan F is going to be showing up in more works, though, I thought this Ask could be a good opportunity to start introducing more friends that are unique to her. As fun as it is to see Gohan F pairing up with people who the original Gohan is associated with, I think it makes sense for her to have her own friend group, too. Rin just kinda clicked to me as someone Gohan F might get along well with, although I don’t know how well I could articulate it beyond Rin being a smart, outdoorsy girl (though less social than Gohan). I also kinda like the idea of Gohan F being subconsciously reminded of one of her moms by Rin’s signature hairstyle.
While I don’t expect them to become super prevalent in my work, I do want to draw the Laid-Back Camp girls more and this Ask was a good excuse to do it. Right now, these three are the only ones in the Studio officially (plus Rin’s mom), but eventually the others will make it in I’m sure. Nadeshiko has something in the works, though it’ll be a while before it’s finished. So Rin’s just had Aoi and Chiaki to camp with in the Studio, who are probably the two she’s least connected with in the original series. They’re friends, sure, but she’s much closer to Nadeshiko (as her new friend so goes camping with as a duo several times) and Ena, her only friend she seems to have had before the series starts.
I started watching Laid-Back Camp in January, and I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. I really like anime that’s just about cute girls hanging out, which is exactly what this show is. Rin Shima, or Shimarin, is the first girl we meet and arguably the main character of the show (her and Nadeshiko kinda share that spot), and she’s got a hot mom so I knew right away I’d want to bring them into this series. Nadeshiko also has a hot mom, and I plan to draw them for MomSwap eventually, but I’ll probably do another mother/daughter pairing or two first. I have a lot more planned for the Laid-Back Camp girls down the road, though it’ll probably be spaced out since I don’t think many of my followers know this show or are clamoring to see the characters from it.
