Hello, my name is Uncle Yuu, I'm the creator of the webcomics, Neo Knights and Echo: My Daily Life. I've been writing for a couple years now and am currently taking television classes at Columbia College in Chicago. I've always been fond of cartoons and anime, especially fantasy and superhero shows. I started Neo Knights because I wanted to make my own, I wanted to have a team of my very own, whose stories I could tell and Echo came about because I wanted to explore a "what if" scenario where an imaginary friend becomes real rather than stay imaginary.
I really like sort of team stories, shows like Power Rangers really encouraged that. I like seeing the day-by-day lives of the heroes as well as the action. There's something oddly interesting to me about the personal lives of these larger than life characters. I couldn't really tell you why, it's just what I find interesting. Their struggles, their loves, their hopes, their dreams, everything. I'm also pro-sexuality in media, I think we shouldn't be afraid to talk or display sexual themes. It honestly bugs me a lot of the time how a fair amount of people will freak out over a scene of a girl in their underwear or something like that. However, I'm not a fan of distracting from the plot so I don't include fanservice in serious scenes really. Then again I wouldn't include things like comedy in relatively serious scenes either.
I'm also a major animation buff, I know about animation from all over the world, name a country, I can tell about animated films or shows from there, doesn't matter where. I can't help it, I just love knowing the inner workings of the medium, same with comic books.
I also have a twitch account, I tend to stream at random, late at night so just check in around there if you wanna watch. I do making of streams for my comic, Let's plays, podcasts and such. Come on by sometime!
