>elf-san was yaserarenai
>manga about an elf getting thicker by eating too many french fries by Meth
Are Japanese publishers finally noticing the thick trend?
Can we expect more like this?
>Can we expect more like this?
Please no. The first chapter wasn't even good, it was just about a girl getting fat with the pointy ears as a cheap gimmick, because otherwise only fetishists would care.
Oshiete Galko-chan beat him to it.
I have no idea what qualifies as thicc anymore, but weren't people saying that when they did Amagi?
This mad man cannot keep getting away with this boner inducing character designs.
He's making me wish I was a manlet martial artists
Just sketches from methonium's tumblr.
maybe not, but having more variety in bodytipes is already a good thing.
people though that with the Monmussu anime monster girls would become more common in anime but it has hardly been the case.
Gonna talk full /d/ here for a second.
I'm not exactly holding my breath for quality. With fat and weight gain stories, Japan generally is not the place that produces the most quality. The first chapter had potential, especially since she got chubby again by the end, but I'm guessing she's gonna stay in that nebulous "thicc" range, that a lot of Japanese artists seem to be afraid to go beyond for fear of alienating people.
It could change, especially if it's more than a oneshot, but generally you shouldn't have too many high expectations for fatties with anime and manga artists. There just really isn't a market. The few guys who are deep into it are now pretty much openly catering to western people with commissions and stuff.
Well it's got all the hallmarks of that type of narrative. Foreign girl comes to new place, tries out decadent food, gains weight. That's like a paint by numbers set up for a sequence of drawings, or a story.
I'd love to see how it goes, but despite all the wacky fetishes Japan seems to embrace, fatties generally aren't one of them.
I'm not sure that'd work. There's overlap between the people who like chubby elves and the people who like muscular ogres, but I think it'd turn some people off. It's be like if they added a cake to the main cast in a show about lolis; you can like cake and you can like lolis, but you're not going to win any points with the loli audience by aiming for another demographic.
He haven't made plot storyline even in his hentai. They're all a bunch of short works
Well desu it's not like he couldn't make great manga regardless. Shits like Hidamari sketch and seitokai yakuindomo (even fucking doraemon) are just few of the examples of how to make a successful manga with minimal plot and development
I agree, but my mindset with Japanese artists, and weight related stuff, is to always err that they're probably not gonna go too far off the deep end with it.
Adding a "muscly" girl, and a really "tall" girl, or whatever, just rounding out the cast, and maybe making it more a story about size, is probably the best way to keep the manga afloat.
I could be wrong though. I hope I'm wrong. I'd love for it to focus on chubbier characters.
>rounding out the cast
I'd say the cast is already pretty round.
Maybe pic related
>Harpy manages to get off the ground.
>Starts getting sweaty after flapping half a foot forward 5 feet off the ground
>Falls down and pulls out a cheeseburg
>Lesson about how predators can easily becomes fat if they stop hunting for food
>The harpy slims back down because she is told to chase her meals
>She now chases trucks carrying burger patties
I want to draw this.
but I'm not gud enough
>That one good, cheap artist I know who can do stuff like that isn't taking commissions
I'm a hundred percent certain this is unrelated to the current comic but this guy also has fat kitsune.
>Because of this piece of crap manga Meth is no longer making hentai
I want her to smother me in her thighs
God bless Methonium. He has quickly became my favorite artist.
Just ignore me while I post this.
This recent string of thicc elves made me realize just how great they are.
Oh good, I wasn't the only one who had the same thought cross their mind.
The whole "Japanese cold" thing is the dumbest fucking mistranslation meme ever. It's the flu, you stupid fuckers. Nips just don't differentiate between a bout of the sniffles and being feverish in bed for a few days.
A harem of skinny/normal girls all fall for a guy who is the typical stoic nice guy, but only they known they're his harem as he is busy being 2cool.
Finally they just decide to ask him why he doesn't want to date any of them and he says that he likes Chubby women.
Of course, more for /a/.
It's like Health before it. It started with girls who were slightly thicker with wider hips, bigger thighs, a little bit of belly, etc.
Then fat fags got a hold of it and it just became another word for straight up fat girls.
>She uses addicting additives and formulas made to help put on weight.
>Every girl think she's just a sweetheart.
>Eventually they realize they're fat and she offers to 'help' but instead is planning on constantly rebounding them so they get bigger
>By Senior year the formerly 110-120 pound girls are now 170-180.
>One of the girls says 'Fuck it' and asks the dude out
>Turns out he likes bigger girls, especially the harem since their breasts all grew.
>The yandere goes nuts and starts her own path to fattening
Due to her insanity she overdoes it and her stomach explodes
By your comment I thought it would be worse, there is some cute stuff there
It's written, but this is probably the closest thing I've seen that's managed to kinda grab the aesthetic of SoL anime, only with chubby characters.
Characters don't always start chubby, and there are multiple storylines that feature people with different body types. It's kind of like a VN, in that it's a whole bunch of branching paths.
He's still making H stuff, r-right?
>artists finally picking up on the magic that is belly rubs
I'm sure he does but the dude loves seeing girls get bigger. Pretty sure iirc his pixiv account has weight gain fetish stuff bookmarked on top of incorporating it in his own works.
>no Gyanko anywhere in the thread
Shame on you /a/.
Why is it the best part?
It's soft, squishy, and makes you want to play with it. And afterward, it's something to rest your head on!
Navels are for gentle lickings, fingering, and kissing, not penetration. Now don't get me wrong, a deep innie on a soft tummy is the best but that doesn't equate it to a nipple!
I can't complain.
In a world where hentai artists can eventually move on to make mainstream, popular, profitable works... well, that makes it even more viable as a profession/entry.
For every Meth we lose to the mainstream (he's not really gone anyway) we gain a world more accepting of his craft, and more willing to follow in his wake
Japanese have become increasingly more reliant on Westernized i.e. Americanized fast food and diets. As a result, there's been an upswing since the late 60s and especially early 70s of larger breast sizes and women becoming bigger as a result.
Not a coincidence this is reflected more and more in anime and doujin stuff.
Xebec needs to stop hopping on other franchises and just make their own series
They don't need to be mad creative just do a show about some apartment complex full of crazy thick women and their slice of life fanservice antics
No need for special powers just ship that shit
In Japan male obesity is actually on track with the rest of the developed world.
Intense ingroup female bullying keeps female obesity low, which lowers the overall average.
It does seem like there's some sort of societal pressure on women (more so than in other countries), but it's okay to be fat if you're a middle-aged salaryman.
Less competition for me. I guess, but still.
>Don't Japanese companies get fined if their employees are fat?
I don't know for sure, but the company I work for (and most companies in Japan, afaik) require a yearly health check. I always do well, but people who are overweight do get a warning.
"Your weight is costing the company a hefty fine, Debu-san."
"Please, Bosu-sama! There must be something I can do !!"
"Oho, luckily, I know of a few techniques to burn calories!"
How would you bully her?
Obviously I will give her lots of sweets to eat and encourage her gluttony, anon. And then repeat that process over and over again without fail or stop. That's how.
You don't even deserve the energy it takes me to say fuck off but I'm going to make a special exception: Fuck off
It's a shame though. I love thicc bitches as much as the other Moby Dicks itt but I've always been fond of Japan and other far eastern countries for their ability to keep their women nice and thin.
All good things come to an end.
You can't possibly be alone. Look at this shit
You say that but most times I bring that fact up you get the usual spew of retards defending it.
Look at that shit. Why don't authors know how to match a head to a body. I'm not saying make her face fat but it's like a teens head on a womans body. Methonium does this as well but he got much better as time went on.
Fucking obsession with moeblob characters man I swear.
Holy fucking hay-packed-pillows, anon
That is S-tier softcore softness. Need to balance it out with something firm.
I fucking hope not.
It's for the greater good that this shit remain niche.
I'd at least like it to become less niche.
I mean how many manga sites have an entire category for genderbending stuff with a guy either trapping it up, or going full girl?
I don't think having a few bigger girls is that unreasonable when stuff like that can breach into major popularity.
kashiwamochi yomogi drew the best thicc girls
shame he doesn't draw anymore
this was posted in november 2016 so maybe there is hope
Such a waste ;_;
Why is it so sensual seeing one girl nuzzling and kissing another girl's belly?
It's rare for women to appreciate thiccness since they more often than not accept the standard of beauty set up by the fashion industry, which is run by other skellingtons and gay men.
Seeing a girl into more plump bodies is endearing.
Are the two on the left aliens holy shit? Just goes to show you if you spend too much time drawing thicc girls and guys with deformed horse cocks you lose perspective on other things.
Well, not everything, thankfully.
He's pretty damn talented, so it's kind of a shame that his tastes happen to what they are; that seems to be way of things with hentai in general -- god-tier artists are too far-gone for straight vanilla.
I only accept fit or standard.
I still prefer the dude to be generally bigger/taller.
Only since relatively recently, according to memes about historical ideals of feminine beauty.
I was thinking more of the old paintings and such with moderate fatties all over the place.
Pic related artist (mitsumoto jouji) is underappreciated.
His colors are gorgeous.
>feed and thiccen Anon
That sounds very awkward anon.
What are some of your favourite artists that specialize in THICCC?
