The IY&VtSRaC Project!

Do you draw? Do you have friends who draw? If so, please submit art to our mini-comic, the “Inu Yasha and Vash the Stampede Riding a Chocobo Project”. The end result will be a mini-comic filled with different artists’ interpretations of Inuyasha and Vash the Stampede Riding a Chocobo. I will make the final comic available online in pdf format and sell copies of the comic anime conventions. Other artists included in the project can also sell print-outs of the comic at conventions (provided that they make print-outs and copies themselves and do their own stapling).

This project started off as a joke, but I’m convinced that it could become the most popular piece of anime fanart ever made!!! Maybe it’ll get to be as big as that Batgirl Meme. If you’ve got comments or questions or ideas, email me at

The art can be in any medium, it can be pencil or inked or sculpted or 3D or whatever, so long as you provide a scan or photograph or whathaveyou to be included in the comic. Email whatever to The tentative deadline is August 1st, 2006.

Help get the word out by re-posting this, cross-posting it, emailing it, or whatever way you want without being too annoying and spamming people. I’ve created some flyers to be passed out at cons and whatnot:

In order to make this super-easy to draw, here are some reference pictures of Chocobos, Inuyasha, and Vash:

And here’s a Gallery of the Pictures listed above.

Bonus Show! Anime Christmas Music

Xmas Bonus Show! Direct Download:

You don’t have to listen to this show, I promise! Noah actually says not to listen to it, and tried his best to prevent this show from happening.

1. “Jingle Bells,” Track 9 on the Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Oh Ki Christmas Album. Not available in North America (imports only).

2. “Joy to the World” although I don’t know the Japanese name or track number, it’s on the Tomoeda Shougakkou Chorus Club, a Card Captor Sakura Christmas album, not really available in North America. Try looking for it here.

3. I don’t know what this track is called or which album it’s from, but maybe you can figure it out by read this page. It’s definitely from a Live Action Sailor Moon soundtrack.

4. “Christmas in the Silent Forest” by by Ilaria Graziano, track 10 on the Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex OST 3. Apparently it was the fourth opening theme of SAC in the first season, but Cartoon Network doesn’t want you to know that!

5. A Podsafe Christmas Song by Jonathan Coulton. You can download it from that link and use it on your own show and stuff. You can even give him a tip!

6. “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” also from Tomoeda Shougakkou Chorus Club, the CCS Christmas album.
