Go To



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes - The old Emiko's Genesis site is not only down, all of the pages archived by the Internet Archive are ''blank''. The only proof of Emiko's existence is as a mascot for an anime club and people talking about the webcomic.



* OldShame - Probably why Ian Kim removed the site. Even pre-cancellation, he was lamenting that the west [[AnimationAgeGhetto doesn't take the]] {{Animesque}} [[AnimationAgeGhetto style seriously]] and that he'd have to switch to a more realistic/Western-comic style if he wanted to get employed.



* ScheduleSlip - Would happen time to time both pre- and post-ContinuityReboot, before being canceled altogether.


* CaptainErsatz - Eva Lemon is a very obvious one for [[{{Macross}} Sharon Apple]]

TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, technology is at its peak, flying cars are everywhere, and mankind has solved most of its problems, so what do they worry about now? Mysterious, dark blob creatures (known as [[FunWithAcronyms D.U.B.s]]) threatening the stability of [[MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover multiple dimensions]], of course!

Enter the [[TimePolice DCD]] and one of its newest agents, Emiko Kawasaki, who has sworn to protect the innocent and kick D.U.B. butt!

''Genesis Chronicles'' (probably better known by its original title, ''Emiko's Genesis'') was a webcomic written and drawn by Ian Kim. After getting a ContinuityReboot with an art upgrade, he discontinued the comic to focus on his professional portfolio and has since pulled all of the pages from the internet.

!This work has examples of:
* AIIsACrapshoot - Possibly suggested with Eva Lemon, if her name is supposed to be a pun on TheAllegedCar.
* ArtShift - Ian Kim started with a [[AhMyGoddess Fujishima]]-inspired {{Animesque}} style that gradually became much more unique as Ian developed into a style of his own.
* AscendedExtra - Emiko started her life as the mascot for the Club That Really Likes Anime at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada. He then began to write her backstory, and eventually started a character page for her. The rest is history.
* {{Bishonen}} - Eric.
* CaptainErsatz - Eva Lemon is a very obvious one for [[{{Macross}} Sharon Apple]]
* ContinuityReboot - It went from a fairly lighthearted (implied) MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover to a DarkerAndEdgier ScienceFiction-slash-PoliceProcedural.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild - Mai.
* FingerlessGloves - Eric.
* FourthWallMailSlot
* FunWithAcronyms - D.U.B.s (anybody who's familiar with the series please help decipher what it originally stood for?)
* GenericCuteness - Everybody.
* GratuitousJapanese - all the time. The characters use {{Honorifics}} with each other, Mai's speech patterns are peppered with Japanese interjections, etc.
* {{Hologram}} - Eva again. Her actual hardware core is rather like [[{{Portal}} GLaDOS']].
* IntercontinuityCrossover - To WebOriginal/{{Capow}}, before Ian Kim left the group and requested that his characters not be turned into {{NPC}}s.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes - The old Emiko's Genesis site is not only down, all of the pages archived by the Internet Archive are ''blank''. The only proof of Emiko's existence is as a mascot for an anime club and people talking about the webcomic.
* MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover - The original comic implied that Genesis, the city where Emiko lives, is the hub of all fictional universes.
* OldShame - Probably why Ian Kim removed the site. Even pre-cancellation, he was lamenting that the west [[AnimationAgeGhetto doesn't take the]] {{Animesque}} [[AnimationAgeGhetto style seriously]] and that he'd have to switch to a more realistic/Western-comic style if he wanted to get employed.
* PointyEars - Eric.
* ScheduleSlip - Would happen time to time both pre- and post-ContinuityReboot, before being canceled altogether.
* SuperDeformed - The character style in the FourthWallMailSlot and elsewhere on the site.
* TakeThat - The D.U.B.s are black masses that corrupt everything they touch.
* WingedHumanoid - Nana.
