Webcomic / Mistakes Of Youth

Go To
One does not care to acknowledge one's mistakes of youth.

Mistakes of Youth is a Webcomic started in 2006, revolving around the adventures of Rets, a "borderline hikikomori" otaku with a penchant for lolicon, Tina, a yaoi/shotacon fan who is inexplicably Rets' best friend, Brad, the shopclerk who is constantly irritated by Rets, and Rets' Japanese internet friend Go.

The title is a relatively famous (quoted twice in Otaku no Video) quote from Char Aznable of Mobile Suit Gundam.



  • Art Evolution: Very subtle, but the characters have gradually become prettier.
  • Fetish: Rets' obsession with paedophilia.
  • GIS Syndrome: For anime posters and box/manga covers. Often also for televisions.
  • Only Sane Man: Poor Brad. His regulars drive him so crazy with their perverted interests that he's willing to like the company of a Naruto fan.
  • Take That!: Often implemented. Especially at Hideki Anno's expense.
    • There's also an especially nasty (though very funny) one against Bee Train, which the author seems to dislike for mediocre production values and perceived repetitiveness of theme.
    • There have been numerous ones directed at Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
  • Poster-Gallery Bedroom: Rets' room is covered with loli posters from various anime sources.
