Obligatory hipster reference: I was welcoming Catalogue back before it was cool.
Now, on to more relevant stuff: Having finally gone through the full scans, I'd like to request that 5P have another look at My Balls
...Okay, That Came Out Wrong
EDIT: Submitting request for re-evaluation of My Balls
, with consideration to re-open the My Balls
thread for further discussion, on grounds of "new evidence" which may affect the voting decision.
Apologies to all those who've actually spoken in favour of keeping the work, but I'm not sure if the full picture was actually presented to the team, for the following reasons:
- The work does get much more explicit as it progresses in terms of volume and intensity. If this progression has been taken into account, then that's fine, but as a number of commenters have rated it as borderline based on the earlier chapters alone, I'd just like to highlight this and ask for a review to see if the later content pushes it across. (On that note, I'd disagree with the assessment that the art was not meant to titillate, again based on later content, but that's my opinion.)
- On that note: It's been stated in the discussion thread that no explicit sex is involved. This starts off true, then reaches "only true if you adhere to Bill Clinton's definition" somewhere around the later bits, and then you can forget about that when you reach the last volume.
- The main female character passes for a middle-schooler following the main male character's memory wipe. I can't remember what the stand is on Really 700 Years Old scenarios, since this is a demon we're talking about here, but it's worth consideration and noting that this is not the fault of the artwork alone. In mitigation, this is not a major plot point and is never brought up again.
- I will agree that there is a plot and it is reasonably funny - however, whether or not that can be considered to be balanced out by the content is up to the panel.
I don't like seeing works cut, to be honest, but in the interests of fairness I'd like to ensure that the evidence used for decision-making is a representative sample of the content as a whole.
