Teenage Jacob by humon Teenage Jacob by humon
Jacob and Nini have their own page now [link]
It's called "Manala Next Door" because Manala is one of the many names for the world of the dead, and as demons and spirits they don't live far from it. It's also to avoid people going, "It's called Jacob&Nini so it should always be about them!" like they do with the Niels comics.

Anyway, here's Jacob in his awkward teenage years. He was trying to look scary to fit in with the asuras who were a rather violent and scary bunch, so he used his shape shifting abilities to try and look as demonic as he could. And while they had a pretty bad influence on him, eventually turning him into a demon, his yaksha nature was still more interested in fertility and love, and he eventually left the asuras and toned his appearance down. Looking back he just thinks he look like a complete dork.

Don't worry Jacob, it's perfectly normal for teenagers. We all go through a period where we try to look cool or scary but in hindsight just looked incredibly stupid because we had no idea what we were doing. :XD:

Nini haven't changed much though. She was just a simple country kappa who just wanted to eat babies and grab butts. She looked the same only with smaller breasts and not as "well fed". ;)

Haha, reminds me of my main character who got kicked out of high school at age 17 for breaking every rule under the sun and pretty much acting like a stereotypical 'gangsta' just to look badass.

I'm not sure if you have already got this, but is manala borrowed from the finnish language? :) Becouse it is one of the finnish words for the world of the dead. Just curious, becouse I really like how you used it in that page name! ~

Also, I feel sympathy against the young Jacob. Those hands look cooooool. 8)

That's the first thing i thought when i saw that site too, I think it's just the great way for us finns just to freak out when we see something related to our country x)I don't know how common that is in other countries.
