How do you feel about Omocat's designs and artwork? I like a lot of the stuff available in their store and have the glow in the dark sweater personally, other people think it's too weeb.
Reminder that they started a Kickstarter for a game they were making with free software. It raised $203,000 from 5,910 backers. Said game was meant to be released in May, but there's been no word on it. Not even an update. No backer rewards, either.

True tho, it's like Paul griffiths back when scene kids were a go and he created that piece of shit clothing line called "Babycakes" making £15 a t-shirt and £20 a necklace off stupid scenesters who bought that bullshit. He made his £ and ran away with it all, closed down the shop once scene died lol.

Sigh, sadly I'm one of those idiots to donate to the kickstarter. I saw a lot of people commenting about how RPG maker is a free software, to which Omo (or someone else on the team) just said that their team isn't working for free (although they made quite a bit from it…)

I do like very few of their designs, but I'd honestly never fork over the money for it. I did the kickstarter since I followed the omori blog and I just really like Omori.

I feel like an ass for getting upset over this, but a lot of projects I've seen have given backers first look at updates/only give the backers a look at updates and all kinds of goodies the public doesn't see and seeing that there's a whole update page on the omori game website for the entire public makes me feel a bit bitter… (not like there are any updates to begin with). It seems like Omo is busy with stuff but couldn't you also make time for this game that people have ALREADY GIVEN YOU MONEY FOR??

Hrm…I like some of it. I own pic related and a couple other things I wear less regularly. I do kinda feel like a bigger weeb than usual when I wear it, I will say that.

Her stuff is hit or miss. OP jacket has always been hilarious and ugly to me yet it's considered one of the more coveted pieces of hers.

I never donated to the game because she made her goal and then some so shrug.

I don't like omocat,from what I've heard/seen she likes shots,had a fit over it cause others won't approve,her work looks like ripoff's like the fishboy sweater looks like haru from free. And one of the tomagotchi models said they had problems with her.supposedly this is her.

>>15950

I don't really care if people like shota.

But honestly from her blog entry when she withdrew her "shota" design it seemed like she was like all these other people who think "shota" refers to a kinda immature/boyish character (like Nagisa from Free!) and not a young boy/young boy porn.

http://www.omocat-blog.com/post/101158424285/more-hey-everyone-a-lot-of-innocent-people

>i made a shirt with the word “shota” on it about a year ago. at the time, it didn’t have the same definition as it does now. it was a lesser-used word, and i was under the impression that shota and shotacon meant different things— shota loosely meant “anime boy, or young-looking man” while shotacon referred to the anime boy complex. the shirt was meant to be a parody of those sometimes-ironic “boy” shirts, and was not meant to condone pedophilia in any way. i’ve never even drawn anything sexual in my entire life.


Also Haru has a really generic design and looks like at least 5 other anime MCs.

>>15943 compare with pic related. They look similar but like…generic anime boy with short black hair? OK.

i don't know anything about the whole tamagotchi thing but I think everyone in this industry has some kind of complaints about them from people they've worked with.

I don't care if you don't like her but eh these are dumb reasons.

No. 16002

I liked her when she actually worked hard on her designs and had interesting work. Before her pretty boy era. After that I feel like she just pulls shit out of her ass, draws the same animu girl/boy over and over again, and adds glitch filters or pastel colors. I used to look up to her but all she cares about now is money. Shits the same anime shit over and over again, slaps it on a shirt. 50 dollar apparel? Lmao and it's funny how people still buy it.

The model is super cute!

Anyways, I live in SF so I have access to seeing her clothes before buying them in Japantown. The quality varies a lot between her clothes (probably because of different manufacturers) but they generally feel either really thin or not soft (not scratchy but just not soft either). Her glitch and robot stuff are really cute imo but I could never imagine anyone wearing her weeby anime shit except for tumblr weebs.

Looks like there's some angry comments from donators from December and that's it. The last update was the one from September.

I like some of her more abstract/surreal designs that don't necessarily have an anime trope/reference and some of her drawings, but other than that I don't really care for the whole post-weeaboo hate thing. If someone likes anime, who cares? They shouldn't be overly open or self loathing about it. Just treat it as something normal and keep it to yourself.
I hate her lazy-ass Pokemon collection though

Then again Game Freak probably wouldnt let her do more than that

No. 57598

Since someone bumped the thread, I'll throw in my two cents.

Omocat is a kind of a bitch irl. Maybe it's because she's "shy", but we were tabled near each other years ago at a con and asking her and asking her simple questions resulted in the snottiest fucking replies.

At one point, something small and breakable had fallen between our tables where it could be broken. She wasn't talking, drawing, or helping customers so I tapped her on the shoulder to ask her if the item was hers. Her response was to stare at me with some weird grimace like 10 seconds before her bitchy table mate whipped around and responded for her. "Um no??! It's not???" Her tone was really weirdly aggressive.

Turns out it actually belonged to one of her friends? (Who's group had been blocking the damn exit from the tables for 75% of the weekend)

She was also mutual a with a table mate of mine, who approached her from the front of the table at a slow period.

>"Hi, are you Omocat? I'm [table mate], we follow each other on [website]!"

>"Um…… Alright…..??"
>"Oh, uh, I just wanted to say hi. Since we found out we were sitting so close!"
>"……..ok….."

We stopped trying to engage her after that. Hilariously enough, she sent table mate a pm a few months later being like "Happy birthday!!! Love your art!!! Keep it up!!!" and she was so thrown off.

At this point I'm just really confused on how she manages to do business with literally anyone, let alone these big companies.

No. 57599

>>57598
I guess she communicates a lot better online than IRL which is probably how she made these collab deals

No. 57603

She must get so nervous in public that she tries really hard to keep people from getting near her.
I kind of understand her because I do the same, but since she's basically running a business and has a lot of fans that surely want to approach her, one could expect her to handle the public a little better than she does now.

No. 57622

>>57603
I wouldn't be surprised if she became standoffish from the shota/callout drama. I don't doubt that she's dealt with tumblr SJW teens trying to antagonize her at her table. That doesn't warrant her acting bitchy towards other tablers though.

No. 58080

>>57598
Holy shit, regardless she's "social anxious" or whatever the shit, she sounds like an insufferable person to be with in any kind of situation. I'm getting such strong obnoxious vibes just from reading this.

This is why I'm legit scared of having to deal someday with one of the "cool" people from tumblr. I always suspected their attitude was a fake and this proves it.

No. 58170

>>57598
I've met people like them before. They tend to be on the spectrum. It really wouldn't surprise me, her being the pinnacle of tumblr weeb fashion. Really doesn't excuse her being that socially inept, especially with a business to run. I'm a bit shy myself so I usually get a friend who's better at talking to help. Why can't she do that?

I'm the anon from months ago with the Fishboy sweater. I love it, have never had a problem with it, even to this day it doesn't look bad and I've had it for almost 2 years. The quality of that was what possessed me to buy another one…

I recently bought the Wolfgirl sweater from a newer collection and wow. Haven't had any problems with the print (yet) but it lints up like CRAZY so I have to shave the fuzzies off all the time. It's like night and day.

This is okay, I guess, but all I want to know is whether she spent her fans' money meant to fund Omori on making herself slightly less ugly, and if the game itself is ever even going to come out (assuming she didn't just scam everyone with kawaii animu art and a Bo En song).
Why would anyone try to charge money to make something with free/easily pirated software? This was even before the PS Vita port was announced. Yume Nikki, .flow and 2kki were all made for free, and at least Undertale was made with something aside from fucking RPG Maker. Lisa is an exception, but I'm pretty sure Dingaling asked for less money, didn't make any promises he couldn't keep and actually met his predicted fucking deadline promptly.

I don't think Melly or Omocat are actual pedos, just typical fujos.

It's odd if she really did use the Kickstarter money for plastic surgery, I thought she would have earned enough from her clothing line to pay for that type of thing on her own.

This is a very interesting read. I was unaware Undertale had a kickstarter until i bought the game on Steam. I haven't tried LISA yet, though I've heard it's good. It's a shame OMORI doesn't have consistent updates compared to LISA and Undertale. I feel bad the backers have to wait even longer since they're working on a new game engine for OMORI and wasted money on a game with good potential.

How the fuck are they gonna port the game to the Nintendo 3DS? I'm sure it is not an easy feat and it will take even longer to port it; considering the changes in controls and possibly questioning whether they'll want in 3D or not to their personal tastes.

I'm having doubts Omocat is even working on OMORI. She's been doing streaming on Twitch drawing shirt designs for her Spring 2016 lineup and some requests here and there for viewers. Pic related.

Isn't this the case for pretty much anyone who's Internet famous? Especially artists. I'm by no means a famous artist anywhere, and I only interact with artists who are mostly famous in my country, not in America/worldwide, but still. They'll mostly asskiss each other and try to get the maximum profit out of each other as well, especially the tumblr crowd. Why talk to someone who won't give you any notes?

I'm EXTREMELY peeved that she just somehow forgets to mention something that would alleviate our worries about whether the game we're paying for is actually getting done or not. How the fuck do you just forget to mention something like this to the people who are fucking paying you? That stream should be backer only.

On the note of omocat using Japanese, I don't think she knows the language at all.

I grew up with Japanese so the way she wrote hikikomori here is really weird. On typed text the き,こ, and り characters may connect depending on the font and in handwriting how fast you write it. But looking at her shirt I barely registered her "ko" and "ri" for what they are.

I think she's just copying from google translate or something.

Geez, Omocat is an idiot. Wouldn't it kill her to be "Hmm, OMORI hasn't had any decent updates besides art? Let me fix all of that!". Aside from her doing art designs for her shirts, this was the primary thing she should've been doing this whole time after OMORI got funded. Having your backers on the edge of their seat wondering where their money went is not a good sign after having a slated 2015 release.

Eh, Taiwan was previously colonized by Japan and some people grew up with parents or grandparents who were educated in Japanese (I have a few friends who are multilingual because of this).

Ofc little girls/boys arent gonna wear that, and a older girl wearing a shirt that says "loli" does not make her any younger.

The only thing I find questionable about Mei is that she preaches a lot about being ~*shopping at transparent and sweat-shop free stores*~. While that's a great thing on it's own, rumors are that omocat prints (or at least started off printing) her shirts in China. Omo refuses to disclose her manufacturer so this can't be verified, but I'm suspicious since there are many reports about the inconsistent quality from repeat customers. If this is true, that would make Mei a huge hypocrite

Artists at conventions for anime, video games and comics only make art of anime, video game and comic book characters to make money? Gee whiz I wonder why.

No. 112229

Yep her new Fall line is just making a bunch of other artists design for her. The way I see it,
1) they all agreed to do it because she's undeniably popular. They'll get exposure from working with her without a doubt. Also I haven't seen any info about her paying them. I'm thinking they're probably going to get some royalties (with Omo keeping most of it)
2) she's getting them purposely associated with her and her brand so in case there's ever any truly public drama about her, they'll have to be roped into it too/have to defend her

In any case I'm mutuals with several of those artists. It seems some of them are aware of how gross she is but are in a way keeping quiet because she's giving them an opportunity for exposure. Quite sad.
(And I'm trying REALLY hard not to just send them all those photos of her before she got plastic surgery. I get the feeling everyone online thinks Omo looks just as KAWAII as her drawings and their illusion of her will be shattered if they ever knew hah)

Seems like a smart move. Looks good on your resume and a nice way to passively earn money. If omocat asked me to collaborate for a shirt design, I would do it tbh. I'm not a fan of her work or her personality, but she's not the worst possible artist to network and collaborate with.

No. 112234

I'm pretty sure she's met most of those people in real life (Noticed a lot of those artist from AX and omo was at AX too) so you showing them her plastic surgery wouldn't change much?

Hey guys, I'm the who made this comparison >>78165 a little over half a year ago. I thought it would be nice to take a look on OMORI status as of now.

Some of them are my own speculations based on the info provided on the website, updates etc, so please don't take this as official information since I could be wrong.

What we know so far about OMORI:
>surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game
>you play as the boy OMORI
>you have lost your memories
>you travel between two worlds: "WHITE SPACE" (where you are a depressed kid with no memories, the world is black and white, present time, possibly limited by only your room) and ??? (everything here is colourful, you probably get there through a portal (your laptop), past time/your memories mixed with the present)
>you will have 3-4 party members, only available in the colourful world, they are your childhood friends/neighbors
>the game will mainly take place in the colourful world, which is your neighborhood memory probably?
>meaning that the story could be you replaying OMORI's memory
>i'm not sure what the main goal of this game is tbh. you will definitely be getting some memories back while playing, but i feel like it's going to be a "explore the world"-thing
>there could be some twist at the end (probably revealed through a new/old missed friend, someone might replaced your memories or something) since it's mentioned that you wouldn't want to find out the truth
>there are dungeons with silly themes (e.g. based off bread and pastries)
>the battle system is based on emotions and will feature heartrate
>the game will feature several types of media "such as watercolor, pencil, acrylic paint, clay models, photographs, different types of digital art, and pixel art"
>70 NPC's "each with their own story which you can invest your time in if you choose". some (or all? nah) will have quests for you (it is mentioned that the npc's are only for one side of the game, but since i suspect the other side of the game is only going to be your room.. yeah you get the idea.)
>cutscenes are animated, done traditionally and first person
>2-4 endings

I think that's about it. As for the update status:

>battle system near complete

>song drafts are complete, working on sounds
>maybe cutscene animations are also done
>"For the past few months, the team has been mostly working on tile sets, sprite sheets, map layouts, stat balancing, adding quests, and collaborating with dialogue, flavor text … so I guess basically everything!" (aka I have no idea about the status of the rest of the game - hopefully near done or full done?)
>6+ people working on the game, each team has at least two members (writing could be OMOCAT only tho)
>will be released december 2016/january 2017
>no trailer until then, the trailer will be used as a promotial video when the game is out

As mentioned here >>85010 OMORI is still listed under "significant risk of failure, apologies, money spent"
Their status/summary of updates for the game says the following (timeline now-past):
>August: Backers only update to say development is hard and the lead has health issues, but they'll be done by December-January but also there was a delay because they found some bugs.
>June: Update to say that they have almost fixed the RPGMaker bug and are making progress.
>Apr: Update to say there may be a delay due to RPGMaker and there are no updates because they don't want to spoil things.
>Mid-jan: update with a few screenshots, backers unsatisfied. The better part of a year's silence, high backer dissatisfaction.
>Update in September to say the silence was due to contractual stuff, but nothing since.

tl;dr OMORI could be out at the end of this year/early next year, almost three years after the kickstarter campaign

I might be late on this, but I recently received one of their hoodies and their tag says 'Made in Honduras'. If I recall correctly isn't this a country with really poor factory conditions? If she's aware of this then it makes sense her website doesn't disclaim where it's made because her animu stuff could have been made in literal sweatshops. So not only does she sells stuff kind of overpriced she also produces it dirt cheap in a country where workers earn maybe 3$ a day.

Also adding, I own 2 omocat shirts. The black one is the crunchyroll collaboration shirt which I purchased from their store so I'll givemail her the benefit of the doubt on that one, crunchy may well have handled all production.
The second one is one of the sub dye shirts though purchased directly from her store. I vaguely recall cutting an itchy tag out of the sub dye shirts so sorry I can't give more info on that one.

I backed Omori and I've been getting pretty frustrated with it. Even if she's bad at talking to people it irritates me that she keeps regularly releasing collections and seems to be doing no work on her game. If it's HER GAME then what the hell is this NDA business? If she's gonna blame an NDA for not being able to release info then why didn't she rewrite it so she could at least make regular updates. With $200k she surely has enough to pay a lawyer to do that for her as well as having more than enough left over to cover all other expenses.

The crunchyroll one looks like an american apparrel label so that's good. The printing process for the crunchyroll shirt is probably handled all by them and not omocat.

The second however, fucking COLOMBIA??? I get so grossed out when smaller brands use non-american shirts, that's fucking disgusting. Especially since we've already proven her rich daddy takes care of her and that her skimping out on materials like this shouldn't be happening.

About your Omori backing though, I would ask for a refund at this point. It's almost 3 years past the estimated finish date right? That's fucked.

Isn't all American Apparel production done in the US though? I'm the one who posted the pic and sorry the tag is rough, I've had the shirt for a couple years so it may be hard to read but it says "Made in Nicaragua" on it.
Kind of not relevant since production was probably handled by CR anyway, just a note.

I've seen a couple people saying they tried Kickstarter and they can only get a refund directly from Omocat. I tried emailing a while ago regarding an address change but never got a response. I can try emailing again but at this point, seeing hardly anyone get responses, it's pretty discouraging.
