Bowsette creator wins an award from NicoNico and Pixiv


The creator of Bowsette has just received an award to congratulate him on the creation. The aware comes from NicoNico and Pixiv, and it's for creating the 20th most popular trend of 2018. I can't even imagine how crazy it is being the person that created such a phenomenon. Sometime that took over the whole of internet pop culture for a solid month!

"You made the road. We came running" is probably the best message I remember reading from a Japanese fanartist to haniwa when he was initially freaking out over how popular Koopa-hime had become.

Yeah, I'm sure that a site like Pixiv really benefited from something like Bowsette...

In fairness Nintendo is like... %99 responsible here for cultivating the circumstances that led to it. They made Peach's design. They made Bowser's character. They created the unresolved will-they-won't-they tension that's been central to the franchise for thirty-something years. And they were too lazy to change up the Nsmbud port's two whole cutscenes worth of plot to accomodate normal playable Peach so they instead created an item with rule 63 implications.

Haniwa's the Gavrilo Princip of horny Nintendo fan artists.

I am in love with your comparison.
