South Park is not meant to be kawaii...



For more pleasure go to this page here.

Something is inherently wrong with South Park being drawn in that style and used for Japanese mass consumption as something other than the subversive thought provoking humor that it's known for in the US. Then again I happen to think that the stylistic crudeness that makes up South Park is why it's so effective. Making them look taller and sort of urban defeats what makes the series and characters so memorable to be honest. Personally I hope that this is a joke of some sort or even worse a doujinshi.

I think it looks quite cool actually, i would read a South Park manga even if thats not how you think of South Park when you hear the name.

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own 2 eyes: Southpark the manga. Maybe someday even an anime?

I think someone should be kicked in the groin repeatedly. Kenny should NOT be a bishy. The look of South Park is part of the series' identity, while this makes it look like any other mass market garbage.

Now that's silly looking. But South Park is suppose look like crap because it is crap, good crap. I wouldn't waste my time on that when I could read any one of the many fantastic manga out there.

Peace. V

I sense a bit of the Final Fantasy Tactics character style in those drawings. I like the art. But the idea of toning down the visual style of the characters doesn't work with me. Had the artist produced some work where we get to see Cartman screaming at someone (even better, in his Nazi or police uniforms screaming at someone), or Kenny getting torn apart by rats, or something along the lines of what we expect to see from Southpark, then I'd feel better about it.

But this cuts out the edginess of the show, which is central to it's purpose and appeal.
