Webcomic: Hang in There, Kogasa-san aka: Hang In There Kogasa San
Ohhh? I may exaggerate, but I don't draw anything false, do I?
Kogasa, when Yamame complained one of his earlier strips tarnished her reputation.
Hang In There, Kogasa-San is a Touhou Fan Web Comic story about Kogasa Tatara and Sanae Kochiya being happily married and living together. Both are famous manga artists and the story describes their daily lives between traveling, conventions and general tasks for work. The catch is that all the story lines are based on the life of the author, Mizuki Hitoshi, comedically exaggerated.It is published daily on Pixiv, and an English-translated and regularly updated version can be found here.
Acrophobic Bird: Sadly, only the acrophobia part of the trope applies to Kogasa.
Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Suwako and Kanako for Sanae. Kogasa's parents are even weirder from a human perspective but they don't anger her as much.
Author Avatar: Kogasa for the maker, Sanae for his wife, and random Touhou characters for everyone else.
There's some specific choices: Orange Jelly/Dei Shirou is a muscular guy with a flan pudding for a head, Yuzuna99 the maker of "Hang in there Kogasa-chan" gets an extra cutesy Kogasa in her style, and Warugaki gets a simple Remilia, fond of wiggling.
Sanae's parents are also, obviously, portrayed as Kanako and Suwako while Kogasa's family...are not exactly Touhou characters.
Sanae's mother, Suwako, also shows signs of this, like getting angry when learning Kogasa first meeting Sanae didn't immediately lead to "passionate love" and being curious about Kanako and Sanae's sex life.
Drives Like Crazy: Ran has shown to be a demon behind the wheel, ironically though she (he?) was the only one exhausted after that driving trip.
Fan Disservice: Whenever Kogasa does something incredibly adorable, at least one commenter will remind everyone else that she represents a 30-some year old man.
Food Porn: Rather frequent, given that Kogasa and Sanae are both cardinal foodies.
The Gadfly: Many characters in the comic gets at least one, mostly at the expense of Kogasa. Sanae is the most prominent though, especially with her Covert Pervert tendencies which leaves Kogasa flustered. Kogasa however is able to do this to Sanae occasionally as well.
Gender Flip: The writer is male (as are a few of the other characters); his Author Avatar is female in canon and is drawn as a female (with female underwear etc); and yet considered male in-story.
H-Game: Kogasa played one of these with obvious consequences.
Meido: In one instance, Kogasa has to dress up as this as punishment.
Mood Whiplash: Some of the humor comes from either Kogasa, Sanae, or a third party, saying or doing something that ruins an otherwise heartwarming moment. For a more serious example, Kogasa had to leave Comiket 81 early because of someone she knew had died.
Kogasa orders a meal only to get a wrong one or nothing at all.
Yuyuko brings Kogasa or Sanae to restaurants that're massively overpriced for the couple.
Yamame getting lost and/or arriving late.
Yuyuko forcing Kogasa to eat alot of food when she gets the chance.
Sanae for whatever reason being unable to go on trips.
During the arc where they go to America, Kogasa having the uncanny ability to attract rain. Even so much as causing record-low temperatures in places.
Sequential Artist: a certain amount of the strips was basically the pain of being a doujinshi artist; there were poorly-conducted cons that made substantial loss (q.v. the below PMMM convention)elaboration The PMMM franchise's unprecedented popularity forced the convention to extend from a one-day, single-room convention to being held in two convention rooms several blocks apart, and the con was divided into three sessions such that every participant were only allowed to have 90 minutes of time.there've been cases where he had to attend cons that he didn't want any part ofelaboration For example: He entered a con for the urophiliac fetish only to attend two other cons nearby that were already full..
