YMMV / Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi

Go To

  • Arc Fatigue: The comic had a good pacing at the start of the series, but past the "Rescue Blossom" arc, things came to an rather annoying crawl, with the hiatuses not helping matters. For clarity, the comics main plot started in 2004 and shaped up to be a standard heroes vs villains type of thing. At the time of this writing (2018), that conflict still hasn't really come to fruition nor what the villains are really planning.

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: More like an audience-alienating artist. While the sheer level of crossover can drive many people away, what drives even more out is Bleedman's reputation for art that borders (or in a number of cases jumps straight into) the pedophiliac. While this comic is safe for work, you can see the author's preferences without looking too hard.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Bell. The amount of fanart she gets is staggering.
  • Epileptic Trees: Bell. Is she a clone? A real Powerpuff Dr. X created? Someone who just has similar powers? Bleed originally envisioned her as a android, so that's also a possibility.
  • Foe Yay: Blossom and Bell. Even Bleedman has gotten in on it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Bleedman draws the Powerpuff Girls grown up and with more realistic, anime style bodies. Then, a year later, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z was announced.

    • Also with the Rowdyruff Boys, whose new appearance in the comic predated their return in the TV show.
    • And then came FusionFall, which seems to rip off Bleedman's style wholesale.
    • Jack's presence also predates Season 5's premise of still being in the future without having aged a bit.
  • Hype Backlash: Back in the day, the comic generated a lot of hype, but nowadays, there are a lot of factors that can cause this and Hype Aversion.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Bell and Mandark.
  • Les Yay: Bubbles' girl-crush on XJ-9.
  • Moe: Bell. Drawn in a style much more reminiscent of the original Powerpuff Girls than the girls themselves and refers to GIR as "GIRLY".
  • Narm: One of the main criticisms of the comic is that it tries a little too hard to pull the readers heart-strings.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: For 2018's April Fools Day joke, Bliss was put into the comic as the school's guidance counselor. Despite the negative reputation of the reboot, fan reaction to this was mostly positive, her design especially being praised. Some even hope she'll make other appearances outside the joke comic.

  • Ron the Death Eater: She might have been a jerk, but Sam was nowhere near this evil in Medabots.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: The Rowdyruffs.
