YMMV / Nemi

Go To

  • Acceptable Targets:
    • A lot of strips makes fun of Dumb Blondes, usually accompanied by a thin waist and big breasts. One example had her dancing around two busty women while singing a Christmas song, commenting that their breasts looked like balls hanging in a Christmas tree. (Just to be clear: these women hadn't done anything to Nemi.)
    • Anybody who likes music that Nemi doesn't like.
    • Nemi does not care at all for Senterpartiet (The Centre Party), an agrarian centrist political party in Norway for, among other reasons, being pro-fur farms and wanting to exterminate Norway's wolves.
    • Advertisement:
    • People who do not consider artist a real profession, or who think designing on a computer is somehow easier get no mercy. Generally done through Ophelia, who's an artist, and Cyan, who's a graphic designer.
  • Anvilicious: In the Sunday features, Nemi will often deliver long, self-righteous speeches on everything that is wrong with this world. Basically, what seems to be wrong is that most people aren't like her. (Considering how awesome she is, that's a fair point.) But at times it ends up in Lampshading on how bratty she's being.
    • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Plenty of the strips do convey their messages in an effective and touching manner however, whether it be about global warming, gay marriages, animal abuse or world hunger.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Nemi has gained a decent amount of attention in several other countries, and has even been noticed by celebrities like Tori Amos, whom Nemi herself is a huge fan of.
  • Les Yay: One could argue that there is some tension between Nemi and Cyan. They have been friends for as long as the series has gone on (their first meeting was on a Wasp concert), and they often show affection for each other, wether it's platonic or not. Nemi often acts as a less serious parental figure to Cyan's daughter, and, of course, there are some covers that imply a romantic relationship. One has Cyan and vampire Nemi in a very suggestive pose.

  • Seasonal Rot: Later strips seems to have gone through a bit of decrease in drawing quality, and relies more on running gags and stock jokes.
  • Tear Jerker: One comic begins with one of Nemi's friends asking her if she's feeling alright, so she smiles and says, "Yes!" She then sits alone with a solemn expression. As the comic ends with Nemi unable to find anyone willing to listen to her problems, she sheds a Single Tear.
  • Uncanny Valley: The way Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio looked in the comic where Nemi changed the ending of Titanic (1997).

How well does it match the trope?
