Weed World Fanart Features

Post by Bluey_Madison » Mon Aug 16, 2021 12:42 am

I saw the video that Regnant made on the Silver Fang Network YouTube channel, and was curious to see the individual fanarts and letters that were featured in the magazines. I thought some of the kids' drawings were cute, and wanted to read what Japanese readers sent at the time. I've ordered a copy of Weed World Vol. 1 on From Japan, so it might be a while before it arrives, but I can upload some pictures from that volume once the magazine arrives. The order didn't come with all volumes, and wanted to know if anyone else had them, or some higher quality scans already on hand. Or, there is an older thread with the images that I accidentally overlooked.

Thank you! :tfw_bella2:

welp

I got a full set of Weed World magazines like two years ago and I actually started scanning all the fanart in them, but only got through volume 1 before I started wondering if anyone would actually be interested in them and stopped.

Guess I need to finish what I started back then now :FLY: But like I said I already got volume 1 done so I might as well post that right now!

These are all so cute! I love seeing the sketchy ones, it reminds me so much of when I was little and used to draw the characters over and over again in my school notebooks :tfw_rigel1: It's kind of easy to forget sometimes that kids used to, and maybe still do? read the manga as well. With all the blood and language, on top of other horrors, you'd think it would be seinen, but I guess shonen pushes its limits much farther than in America.

Thank you so much for scanning these, it makes me really happy to see reader correspondence like this, fanmail being showcased almost seems like a thing of the past, like when the rabbit from Arthur had his segment visiting kids in the world (or similar kids shows reading fanmail and showing off drawings). Probably made some Japanese kid's day to see their drawing picked to be featured in an official magazine. Excited to soon have volume 1! (just need to find the stickers and papercraft goodies, they were taken out of the secondhand I bought)

I believe I recognize some art styles in there, I think the 'Hougen Milk' artist, Shirouto, made a couple Ginga Doujinshi. My favorites have got to be H.M. (Oita), T.S. (Gifu; this art style is so reminiscent of how anime fanart was drawn in the early 2000s, with the thick lines, sparkles, and smudging effects), A.Y. (Tokyo), and T.S (Fukuoka).

Second volume is done!

I swear this was 30% scanning the pages, 10% cleaning them, and 60% looking up the pronunciations for all the kanji in the names.

Woah, that's a ton more than last time! You're really on a roll today! Thank you for the dedication to this request! I don't know much Japanese, but I can tell that it's a long circle of 'look at the kanji, search it up, find the right pronunciation, check if you're right and damned if you're not'.

The one from the four year old though - did his sibling or parents help him send it? That's so cute! He's very good with a pen, at four! The rest of them are also really cool to look through, especially the realistic looking ones, with the fur details and shading in some (Kiriga; Reina, Aichi) (M.A., Kanagawa). Karafuto Ken's was really cute, a very soft-looking chibi. Also gotta give props to Mashiro from Tochigi giving us the Mole fanart! Love it when the side characters are remembered by readers, even if they aren't by the author

Third volume is done!

Something I forgot to mention when posting the second volume, the color images at the start are basically a "top picks" selection showcased at the beginning of the magazine and, unlike the rest of the art, they're separated into four age categories: primary schoolers, middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adults. In volume 2, each category featured three pictures (except for "adults", which had four), while in volume 3, all four categories have four pictures.

In case you're wondering what on earth is going on with the picture by Heidi (Fukuoka), it's a reference to Heidi, Girl of the Alps, an anime series that's apparently absurdly popular in Japan. Except it's the Ginga version, "Hougen, Dog of the Alps", with the characters replaced by Hougen and his minions.

OH MY GOD Hougen Heidi!? LOOOOL Why are the Hougen images always so funny? :tfw_rigel1: :tfw_rigel1:

Heidi is also pretty popular on spanish-talking countries and it's pretty much considered popular culture around here, so I'm perfectly familiar with what's going on here :tfw_rigel1:. LOL that Murder S as Clara, so fitting XD

Fascinating to see the wolf arc is still remembered! I love all the little kid's art too-baffles me sometimes with the content of the series :surprisegin:

Do you have all the weed world books, Digsu? I have the 5th volume if you need it. Thanks for the scans!

Fourth volume is done! Only one more to go!

This volume has six color pictures apiece for all the four age categories.

I'm curious as to what Yoshi thinks about all this fanart, especially seeing so many younger fans submit stuff :tfw_aokabuto1:

Same; checking on a hunch, I found that at the back of every first-release GNG manga volume there's two postcards, as well as a picture of whoever sent them (I believe, as I don't speak Japanese, but the postage stamp at the top says 'Ginga : Nagareboshi Gin.' There's no drawings, at least not in the first volume, but if I find any I can upload pictures in a separate topic, either here or in the GNG sub-board.

This one is from the back of Volume 1. In terms of responses, I'm not sure, but he might have said something in past convention interviews/visits.
