…and the people are perverts.
My next project will likely be the continuing saga of Ah! My Hentai. Fan response has been pretty good to the idea, more than I was expecting — and I do remember having had a lot of fun working on AMH. It had the kind of freewheeling chaos and slapstick I’ve been trying to work into UE, but with characters I’ve defined much more, er, solidly? Yes, solidly.
I have some very skimpy notes on the upcoming episodes: next one introduces Megumi and has a Battlebots parody, a later one has Marller working with Sayoko… I loosely based the upcoming stories on actual manga chapters. The notes aren’t really fleshed out and I haven’t even looked at AMH in awhile, so it’s going to take me some time to get up to speed. Don’t look for new material within, hell, this week, I’d hazard… I-and-I’s working at my own pace (and this weekend is Katsucon + WWF nWo).
I do have one question to pose before my studio audience. Looking over my notes, I see that I wrote in a few *gasp* sex scenes the upcoming episodes of my *gasp!* lemon fic. I want to check reaction to that from Da Fans.
I generally avoided nookie the previous run; there were a few lemony bits but they were either played for laughs, skimmed over, or backgrounded. I had started out AMH planning on doing unabashed hardcore ecchi action with stickiness oozing from every page… but kind of backed down from that for one reason (fear of my reputation sinking) or another (fear that I’d suck as a letters-to-penthouse style author). It wasn’t so I could fit more plot/characterization in, I don’t see that as being mutually exclusive with the horizontal lambada.
So, what do you think? More hawt action in Season Two? Same level of skimming? Publish two versions and let the readers pick? I promise the story won’t suffer either way, I’ll still try to write a quality romantic comedy, I’m just checking the overall tastes/tastelessness of my audience. ^_^
