Because I Don't Have an Optimus Penguin

For Optimistic Penguin's website 1st anniversary, Ms. Penguin held a contest to make figure comics. The catch is that they have to involve penguins. The only penguin I had was the Prinny Laharl that I got from Anime Expo. I didn't win the contest, but I'm still gonna post mine here just since I already made it a part of The Melancholy of Saber Lily special.

Yes, I realize I have a very, very strange sense of humour. It doesn't make sense if I didn't explain that this was for Optimistic Penguin's contest ^^; Oh and yeah, if I had an Optimus Penguin, I would totally use it here. Oh and I used the Prinny stylus for Prinny Laharl's blunt weapon.

The Melancholy of Saber Lily Special 6
I made it into two parts since I wanted to do "the glass is half full" joke :P Can't be more optimistic than that! This 4koma is really showing off my loot from AX, lol.

And don't worry. Saber Lily didn't really shove the stylus up you-know-where in the second panel. It's just inside the label near his butt.

I made it look like Prinny Laharl is crying, but still hard to see maybe. But how did the hands/wings stay near his eye like that? I'll answer that with the next photo.

Pins! That's right this Prinny is dangerous with pins stuck in his wings!

A closeup of the pin.

Yep, that glass is really half full... Or half empty depending on your point of view. I call it empty because I drank the Pepsi Max inside afterward.

You can see the other entries at Optimistic Penguin's site divided in parts 1, 2 and 3. No Prinnies were (permanently) harmed in the making of these 4koma comics.


  1. I hope the pin didn't hurt him too much XD

    I luffers Prinny's they are so cute DUUUDE

  2. Haha, you do have a strange sense of humor. I like it. ^ ^

    Optimistic Penguin is kind of cute actually.

  3. @OptimisticPenguin: Doood! I knew I forgot something. I was gonna put a disclaimer about Prinnies being hurt, lol. The pin was right on his face when he was "crying" XD

    @Yi: Thanks! ^^ I think I try to make a unique sort of story & comedy that's never been seen before that it becomes strange ^^;;

  4. you do indeed have a very odd sense of humor, I kind of like it too
    but it would have been nice if the koma were more mm fluid as in able to understand at a glance without much thought , or were you doing that on purpose to demonstrate your sense of humor ? lol

    *hi hi Kaionlriu です

  5. @KaionIriu: Blogger still not working for you? Haha I don't know if it's my sense of humour or my sense of pacing. Well these two were pretty much unplanned and I couldn't pace it properly. Also sometimes I think too fast (or not thinking enough) that some of the fluidity is lost. ^^;

  6. that Pinguin looks powerfull.. >_<

  7. @phossil: LoL he is supposed to be king of demon Laharl, but since he's a Prinny now... Not so powerful, maybe? ^^;

  8. Prinny is optimistic, yeah I'd give him that, but he looks really mean. Maybe because you stuck those pins on him? Lol.

  9. @Xine: Oh so you're saying it's my fault that he's mean-looking, eh?? Hahaha maybe so. It's so hard to pose a plushie I tells ya! XD
