barbwirephillips asked: I have a head canon that Misty has a Jocasta complex directed toward Ash. Would you say this idea is far fetched? (I posted an elaboration on my theory a few minutes ago if you want to see my points)
Heh honestly I can’t really say I see that. Figuring out that someone might not be as bad as you first thought after all (which she does at the end of the third episode) and subsequently starting to care more about their well being as they spend time together and their relationship progresses, particularly if the someone happens to be as inexperienced and brash as Ash is, seems just the natural developement of a friendship to me.
(For the record, the “you and I will be married someday” line is only in the dub, and it’s pretty obvious anyway that she didn’t mean married to each other and that’s just how Ash misunderstood it.)
pacificpikachu asked: Toshihiro Ono's hentai pen name is Kamirenjaku Sanpei. I also want to add that he has drawn Pokémon hentai (involving Misty and Team Rocket--it's gross, I do NOT recommend looking it up) that fits into the official timeline of the manga. I love Dengeki/Electric Tale of Pikachu in many ways, but Ono is definitely a rather skeevy dude to work on a kid's title. He has worked on multiple lolicon/shota titles and many of his works are adult works. Just some extra info, do what you will with it.
Huh, the Pokémon hentai I didn’t know about :|
Yeah, he… sems like a rather bizarre choice for a Pokémon manga.
vanillup asked: What I don't really understand is why pokemon? Why did that arist decide to do a manga based on something that was primarily marketed to kids? o:
It doesn’t really answer your question but this is from an interview allthingsmisty just linked:
ANIMERICA: How did you get started in Pokémon?
ONO: Pokémon started out first as a game for the Game Boy. I first started drawing Electric Pikachu when the editor, Mr. Saito, asked me if I would try drawing a couple of episodes of the manga to go along with the anime. This was before the anime even started. I’d always loved the theme of “a boy’s travels,” and the onlyPokémon manga around at the time were simple gag and four-panel comics. I thought that if it were taken seriously, it could be really cool. This was before the anime started up but while Pokémon the game was still getting more and more popular. When I look at it now, I laugh because I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The manga started about a month before the anime did, but I didn’t think then that it would last so long.
Other than this I have no clue.
doortotomorrow asked: I actually find it completely inappropriate to hire a Hentai artist to work on the manga adaptation of Pokemon. It's highly disturbing to have Misty being subjected to that kind of perverse objectification when she's just a kid.
Ehh I’m kind of baffled by that too. Or at least by the fact that he was given so much freedom?
