What is a 4Koma? Basically it’s a comic-strip format that uses 4 panels to convey it’s story. Since 4 panels doesn’t really have room for complexities, it’s mostly used for jokes or gags with a quick punch-line. In Japan, 4Komas are also referred to as Yonkoma Manga, although this style is also used outside of Japan, especially in newspapers.
Well, enough lessons for today! 4Komas are one of my favourite kinds of mangas. They’re quick to read and always good for a laugh. Some of the most popular animes out there came from 4Koma manga, for example, Lucky Star, and most recently K-On.
4Komas are the comic equivalent of “spamfics” which in fanfiction terms, was a short story also used for joke potential. I used to write a lot of spamfics, so I think that’s why I’ve been gravitating to making my own 4Komas today. Since I don’t care to actually draw my own 4Komas, I prefer to combine my fondness for figures into making them.
Anyways! The point of this page is to make it easier to find all the various 4Komas I’ve created in a single directory instead of hunting through my whole blog. At this point in time I think I have about a hundred or more posts, so to get them in order can be a hard thing to do. So without any further ado, here they are:
Magical Girl Lyrical Fate 4Koma
Good news for fans of Nanofate (AKA Nanoha X Fate) from the most excellent Magical Girl Beat-em-up Anime, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, I decided to turn this series into a proper chronological 4koma series. It will still be silly, ecchi, yuri, stupid and just plain wrong, but it will actually have a story – well as 4komas go. Also now that I have more props to play with, it should be a lot better.
Anyhow, the premise of the story is that Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s never happened. This is an alternate universe where Nanoha and Fate grew up together after “befriending” each other in the first season. Because of that, Nanoha … developed differently than she otherwise would have. You’ll see what I mean.

Attack on Nendoroid City! XKoma
Not really a 4Koma, actually a 66Koma. It was originally meant to be a 4Koma though, as if you read it, you’ll realise from the way the jokes are arranged. A chance for me to play with my 4 boxes of Nendoroid Puchis and Transformers ^_^;;
Hijinks occurs when the Idolmasters are rejected from the Nendoroid City Concert Audition and they go to seek revenge.
A parody of the most excellent Death Note. Where if you write a person’s name down in the book, instead of them dying, something stupid will happen
Ace Miku 4Koma Corner!
A One-Shot of Nendoroid Miku. Her earphones remind me of callcentre headsets ^_^
Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 4Koma X 2
A One-shot that gave me a chance to play with my new Gundam 00 Raiser ^_^;;
The Moe-some twin sister of Goddess Nagi of Kannagi. The idea of a Moeblob taking confessions was just ludicrus, I had to create a parody of it
Well, that’s it for now. There are actually a bunch more comic type entries scattered throughout my blog as well, but don’t really count as an XKoma ^_^ (My Figma Fate T. Harlaown Figure Review being a good example of this).
Anyhow, if anyone has any requests, let me know, and if you enjoyed these, also let me know – I love comments ^_^;;
