Anime News Nina! Special Edition Part Vby Robin Sevakis, Jul 28th 2010
Robin's Commentary"I didn't realize Grandma Rosa would become such a popular character when I first introduced her, but now I'm glad it turned out that way! I think quite a few people (especially those who started watching anime when they still lived with their parents) can relate to the situation of adults or non-anime fans always walking into the room at a particularly questionable or embarrassing moment. I was thinking of the old BL OAVS, "Bronze" and "Zetsuai" when I drew this strip. I don't remember much about the show, other than super pointy-faced bishounen character designs, ultra-angst, and use of the word "catharsis," but I think that's all you need to know."
Anime News Nina will return from hiatus in August.
