Webcomic / Omakii
is a fantasy comedy both drawn and written by Stuart Gipp, though the characters are mostly cribbed from Katziinated, a comic created by Leanne Coote.
The comic ran from September 2005 through to January 2009, updating on an erratic schedule
. It is currently on hiatus
, but will return in the future.
Omakii began as a small undertaking, with comics of only one or two pages. In time, however, it grew in scope and came to encompass a fairly consistent internal logic. Most of the comic's events take place in the house, with very little venturing to other locations.
Newer comics tend to single out common online fetishes for parody.
Omakii Z, a spin-off with a more serious tone that takes place a year or so
after the original comic, has reached its fourth chapter as of this writing.
This comic provides examples of:
- Art Evolution - While not massively improved, the comic's art becomes a lot slicker and more expressive.
- Author Avatar - Stubert, in name only.
- Christmas Special - Also an example of downer ending.
- Dark and Troubled Past - Stubert, again, though his exact circumstances are yet to be revealed.
- Fanservice - Good lord, constantly.
- Guest Strip - Various fanworks.
- Ho Yay - Stubert and Noobert, briefly.
- Kill It with Fire - the house, in "Status Quo".
- Les Yay - Katzii and Zimmette. Duh.
- Ms. Fanservice - Zimmette.
- Odd Couple - Katzii's relationship with Zimmette can be quite testing, with Zimm's constant exuberance.
- Refuge in Audacity - A few of the later issues, such as "Maternal Affairs".
- Rule of Cool - SHADES.
- Running Gag - Plenty - Zimm's lust, Stubert and the Yuriboobs, Cosby's hiding around the house, Leanne's being a bitch...
- Snarky Nonhuman Sidekick - Stubert!
- With Friends Like These... - All of the cast have pulled this on each other, but Yuri is the embodiment of this trope.
