“Omake” is a term applied to the extra content supplied with animes. Typically they are done in a silly, exaggerated format compared to what may be a stylistically “clean” format.

Omake Theater is a simple comic done in the same style, a daily work that has no cohesion between the stories. It usually deals with boobs and boys of some sort, but hey, that’s anime for you. Since I still consider this a “new” comic, I won’t go into too much detail with the tearing apart, but one thing really bothers me.

Folks, it’s perfectly fine to revisit old comics. In fact, sometimes it’s entertaining. However, there’s  a key thing about nostalgia that Oniisan seems to have missed: time has to pass before your revisit things in order for them to be funny. This author apparently thinks that his first comic was the absolute epitome of comedy because he revisits it multiple times in a very short archive, changing it only slightly each time. It’s not funny, Oniisan. Not funny at all.

Also, he seems to have adopted the Reaction Guys viral completely, pulling it out repeatedly for little to no effect. Hell, he made a t-shirt entirely based around the Guys. Of course, that viral was not of his own making, so it seems like a bit of intellectual theft to use it so much…

In short, Omake Theater is good when it’s good and bad when it’s bad. Hopefully Oniisan can get his act together and cut out the crap.

  1. I don’t know why are being so harsh on the comic. The way i see it, its funny, even if he uses the Reaction Guys a lot. Reusing jokes is not a bad thing if its funny, and this my friend, is funny.

    • Like I said, some of the comics are good. However, when you have a creator that reposts the same comic, unchanged, because he thought it so fantastic then your artist has a bit of an ego problem.

      As for the Reaction Guys, it’s not the fact that the comics weren’t funny (although I still hold that it’s true). It’s the fact that “Mr. Onii” has built so much content around something that really isn’t his. It goes back to the meme issue, that you’re just riding the idea of someone else. Again, this is pretty standard on the internet. But seriously, releasing T-shirts of it? That’s going too far.
