Nozmo (zeeenya and junjouprince on tumblr, punkblues on twitter) is an artist that eventually rose to internet fame with her (ongoing) webcomic "Todd Allison and the Petunia Violet", after publishing a bunch of unfinished comics on SmackJeeves across the years.

A huge weeb and fanartist as well, Nozmo has dabbled in many fandoms (most notoriously Free!, Yowapeda, Miraculous Ladybug and YuGiOh Arc-V) prdoucing fanart and doujinshi that she put up for sale.

Around September 2015, Nozmo dropped off the face of earth… along with the money of all those who several months prior had preordered her Free! and Arc-V merchandise and never received it.

A new, one-shot comic by Nozmo was posted on her SJ account around November-December 2015. She did not try to contact any of the people waiting on their purchases, nor did she resurface on any of her social media. She simply uploaded the comic without any kind of notice and disappeared again.

Eventually, things started to move, people started to investigate. Some came forward claiming that it's not the first time Nozmo has done this, that there are fans who haven't even received their rewards for backing the TAPV kickstarter (2014). Baseless (?) rumors have it that Nozmo has spent part of that money and the earnings from the Free! book preorders for a trip to Japan.

In December, someone was able to find Nozmo's sister on Twitter, who explained that Nozmo was overwhelmed and scared by the situation she herself created by procrastinating. In February, only after being prodded again, Nozmo's sister stated that the fanbooks and everything are there, they just need to be sent out, that Nozmo has refused help with that from her and the rest of their family. (Caps of the exchange here: http://tapvfans.tumblr.com/tagged/the-nozmo-situation) However, nothing happened since then and Nozmo's sister abandoned her twitter after a few weeks.

Earlier this month, a different tumblr user was able to come in contact with an RL friend of Nozmo's, however, this person stated that Nozmo won't reply to their emails, nor did she pick up when they called her. The friend has however confirmed that refusing help is a weakness of Nozmo and that they're sure she'll come back, eventually.

So, farmers, what's your take on this?

God, I just KNEW the bitch would do this.

No. 17715

I did knew she use to disappear a lot but no that she is actually even avoiding the problem, is her fault, if she doesn't want help fine but she need to get her sht together

No. 17716

Does anyone have any deets on her from inkblazers? She was usually in the top five. The only thing I know about her is that she lives in Canada.sorry for worthless info

No. 17717

Oh wow, I love Nozmo's comics. Brings me back to browsing Smackjeeves way too much years ago. She was easily one of my favorite creators there. My favorite comic of hers was the one with the school kids and the grumpy male protag.

She honestly doesn't come off as a bad person from this description. I used to have a few friends from the SJ site and a lot of them come off as almost, I don't know, maybe a bit autistic? It sounds like she can't handle the stress very much and is creating her own problems. I don't see her as much a flake or anything. Just sounds like she has some obvious mental issues and is really stubbornly independent.

However, if she did blow the money on a Japanese trip, then kek, that's terrible.

No. 17718

I enjoy her work too! I do not think she's a bad person either, but the situation has gotten out of hand. I mean, at first it was just the people waiting for their Arc-V fanbooks, then it turns it's not the first time it happens.

I agree that as of now she does not qualify to be a 'flake, but I really didn't know where else to bring this.

IIRC someone contacted them some time ago and they said that while they do not know the details regarding her situation, Nozmo is most certainly alive and well.

So. Hiveworks has officially archived TAPV as discontinued after several, fruitless attempts to get in touch with Nozmo over the past 9 months.

Nozmo, on the other hand, has been found out to be quite active on the Japanese side of the internet, trying to make a name for herself there after running away from her western fans.

Here's her drawr (a site similar to the old Oekaki) account, where she's been posting fanart almost daily: drawr.net/eclectic

Here's a one-shot comic she submitted to a Japanese magazine contest, winning almost 1000 dollars, earlier this year: http://www.moae.jp/comic/morningzero_johnnyandlove/1/1

As a fan of her work, I can only say that I've lost all respect I had for her as an artist.

I'm also appalled that so many people out there are still defending her. No, I don't think Nozmo is a malicious person like many of the people posted here, but she fucked up big time and that can't be ignored anymore.

After all, she's been trying to build a new online presence and go pro in spaces where - she assumed - the fans she stole money from would never find her again.

Honestly, she'd deserve an international call out post, warning her Japanese fans and possible future employers.

No. 17720

This reminds me of what happened with Tessa Stone and Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name, although she appears to finally be active again just… not with the comic.

No. 17721

I dont think Tessa ever did a kickstarter though as well as HiNaBN was way more popular(and better let's be real) than nozmo's comics ever were.

I wish I could figure out a way to make a call out post like >>17719 suggested but I dont even know where I'd put it.

I'm going to assume she might be part of the reason for the recent call for new Hiveworks comics though so I'm not going to complain since at least she's not making money off of that anymore and it gives me a chance to promo my comic there kek

No. 17722

Not too long ago, a popular Korean artist was called out on Twitter by fellow Koreans who had witnessed her bullying her underclassmen. The same people tried to reach out to her English speaking fans as well, and succeeded, albeit none of them was really fluent in the language.

If we could get enough people to spam her Drawr with messages in English and Japanese (IIRC you can 'comment' with drawings to people's entries) and do the same on Twitter, things could start to move.

People have reported that (of course) she does not reply to private messages on Drawr. Only stops posting for a day or two before resuming as if nothing ever happened. It appears that her sister's Twitter is as of now locked too: at this point it seems 100% certain that she's gonna try and avoid people forever and has no intention of returning the money.

It would also be good if we could get a list of all the people who were scammed to get an idea of how much she stole exactly (I've seen people mention thousands of dollars).

No. 17723

Oh, god. I always assumed HiNaBN's demise was because of some gag order issued by Tessa's production company, 4DE. I heard rumors the dude running it was kinda scummy.

Sage for off-topic.

Her coming has been shared on Twitter by Japanese readers and it appears that some are popular aritsts themselves like https://twitter.com/kusomiso/status/738400939590062080

No. 17725

What a piece of shit. I hope something actually comes out of this so people can get their money back. There's nothing that can excuse this kind of behaviour. Her art is underwhelming, too.

I would like to say something, after reading all the comments so far. I would like to state something, don't you think it's a bit too soon to judge? Yes, she's been very mysterious and stubborn to ask others for help. But I don't think she's a bad person, more of, I think handling tons of package and prefer to do everything herself is too much for one.

How about we give her some time, I heard she's been shipping the items late than usual, but still it is going to process, better than nothing.

I don't she's running off with the money, more like, her being lazy and stubborn led her readers to conclusion that isn't even proven at all. And let's be honest, nozmo is a timid person. And noticing all the swears and exaggerated conclusions about her deceiving isn't helping her depression at all, it's making it worse.

I have a feeling that she's not being active to western sites so far due to her delays in the package and rumors, and I think she'll only return once the situation is over.

Besides, there is no such thing as a shitty art style. There only an art style that captivates more than the other, let us not discriminate something further other than this field please. Styles are a whole new different topic that shouldn't be brought up, if you don't find it attractive than beat it and leave. Because I clearly can see some who appreciate it, we all have are taste. There's no good or bad to that.

if you check her twitter profile, she even changed the profile pic to chat noire from the magnificent ladybug.

in fact, shes been active on twitter. her last activity was 25 sept 2015 which really isn't that long ago.

>>17739 this isn't about 'too soon' to judge, and people have a right to deride her for failing to follow through with her promises. she took peoples money, promised them a service, and never delivered on that service. she deserves to be sued. people need to start taking steps to filing a lawsuit against her because she just committed fraud and defrauded people who believed in her. if she can't follow through, then she needs to summilarily return all the money she took from people.

she shouldn't be doing these kinds of things all by herself. am i supposed to pity her for being so brave and doing everything on her own? nah, she costed people who believed in her thousands of dollars and that is criminal. this is theft.

No. 17742

if she was jsut doing her own thing that would be one thing but she's literally been selling other products in the meantime and that's BS. She doesnt deserve any 'mercy' or 'pity' she should have fessed up from the beginning

she could have easily said 'wow I wasnt expecting putting this all together to be so hard so I'm going to take my time and process everything please be patient with me'

She literally dropped all her responsibilities in the 'western' world (even a funded webcomic wtf???) to run around and be a fucking weeb and try to pretend to be someone else. She is literally scum imho.

>I have a feeling that she's not being active to western sites so far due to her delays in the package and rumors, and I think she'll only return once the situation is over.

Lmao. So let me get this straight. She has depression, which in its own is bad and I empathize with her for it, but that just means that there's all the more reason to HIRE someone ELSE so she can have help putting in the orders. And because of this, she stopped responding to her fans in the west who funded her and ran away to Japan where she not only resumed making comics under the same name, but entered a contest unabashedly and won $1,000. She apparently is active in the Japan manga scene and is trying to build up a fanbase. Meanwhile, her fans that paid her got jack-didly squat.

I used to love nozmo. I loved TAPV. I recommended it to all my friends and everyone I knew, because I thought that it was so great. Years down the line and inconsistent chapter posting asside, I was loyal to her because every chapter she put out was amazing to me. When I found out she had that kickstarter for her comic, I was more than ecstatic for her. After all, if you see your fave moving up in the world you'd be happy for them too, right? Then news of this nonsense came around and at first I was shocked. Then I became angry because my fave artist at the time defrauded these people.

When I saw her sister or whomever that was defending her, I thought "how unprofessional". You literally cannot contact her because there is no way to reach her. Even hiveworks, the website that picked up her comics after mangamagazine closed down unexpectedly couldn't reach her, so they archived her comic.

If any exaggerations being posted here make her feel something, then that is good. She should feel a pang of guilt for ghosting on people's orders for years. Nozmo, if you're reading this, you need to do right by whatever fans you have left and post up a response or something. Communicate to us what the hell is going on.

A similar albeit not so similar situation happened with yuumei, where after she ran a massively successful kickstarter her co-founder betrayed her and sicked her lawyers on her over some nonsense, so for the longest time people that ordered her product didn't get it for a good year+ after the fundraiser happened. The difference between both is that yuumei gave people back their donations and consistently update people with news. Nozmo went ghost and reappeared later somewhere else.

My call-to-action by way of lawsuit still stands. She should have never run off to begin with. Shit happens with your brand? Then you sit through that shit and work it out. You can't just up and leave, especially when people are rooting for you and invested in you.

No. 17744

Also if you look at twitter it's simple to see that yes a FEW people received their doujin orders but there are PLENTY MORE who still havent and now it's past the time of making a paypal claim ?? it's absolute nonsense. I used to be casual artist friends with nozmo and I've been through a super similar situation and yeah it super sucks to run a business all by yourself especially when most of your orders and in another country but nah son you dont get to run away and pretend like nothing ever happened. I literally spent a year making sure people got either refunds or their orders in the long run (at least the people who got back to me about it)? but nah seriously.

idk I see so many small artists struggle to get by and deal with shit so tbh seeing her literally run away like this??? it really grosses me out.

No. 17745

I followed her on twitter and thought it was strange that her endless stream of tweets about Arc-V and Miraculous Ladybug just suddenly stopped. Really sucks that she ran off with the money and disappeared, I actually enjoyed the Todd Allison comic. If she had just given refunds and an apology for inconvenience, then she could've continued building her comic and fanbase without all this shady shit.

No. 17746

I only spent $20 on one of her fanbooks and I still didn't receive it. I feel more sorry for people who spent more than that.

No. 17747

I feel like people who got the comics should at least post them some where. At least the people how payed can see what they're missing. And so what if other people see it. She shouldn't have just left

No. 17748

I wonder if that was it and nozmo won't be sending any other orders out. I hope not i got excited that my order would finallly come in, only to get my hopes dashed again. I hope she would at least say she is sending out orders in her time and it would be forgiven. It's the lack of communication that really made this situation what it is.

Lmao did she? Guess she knows she's been found out then.

No. 17751

yeah i think she did. nothing new on her drawer for a couple months i think. i hope she's using that time to fulfill the rest of the orders she owes people. i hope i get mine but my hopes aren't very high. wish shed say something cause the silence only makes it worse and worse.

No. 17752

So this person claims nozmo actually refunded some people?


Is this true? She seems to be defensive of nozmo.

Holy shit, how do people not know anything at all? Don't people know her IRL?

No. 17753

I know I never received a refund for the 3 doujinshi i ordered from her more than a year ago now. Yeah, they do seem defensive of her, understandable of an artist you admire, but they seem to know nothing of the circumstances involved in this case (maybe they're a new fan). They say "only 15 dollars was lost get over it." Like no its not right my order was over 15 bucks, but thats beside the point. Nozmo offered a product and it was her duty to work with the customers to either fulfill the orders or make it right. While the complete opposite happened, she up and disappeared from all online interaction in the western world went on a trip to japan and is making comics one of which won 500 + dollars. All the while she basically took advantage of her fans by not saying or contacting any of the people who gave their money to her because they loved her work and wanted to support her. A big fu if you ask me. I know some people, a month or more now, have gotten the stuff they ordered, but I haven't received mine. I think all the people who got their orders are from Canada(maybe). Im in the us, so I'm hoping that nozmo is just working on the other orders finally at her pace (which she should have been doing all along) and that she just hasn't decided to forego all the others who ordered from her. I wish she'd let anyone know what is up with orders or just contact the people who ordered from her and offer a refund if it's to much for her. If not, oh well maybe next year haha.

No. 17754

@cheapexorcism also nozmo did refund ppl as much as she could but aight" HAHAHAHA LOL UM NO. How in the heck do you refund as much as you can? You freaking either give a refund to all those whose orders you cannot fulfill or you don't at all, which is what Nozmo did. It's so easy to refund people on paypal she just couldn't be arsed. They obviously know nothing about this and weren't affected by it, yet act like they know it all. Like shhhhhh. I still love nozmo and her art and wish she would comeback, but still what she did to her fans was wrong. From my point of view, well after a year from when the order was placed, Nozmo has stolen my money and I still have no clue whether i'll ever get what I paid for. She has not ever contacted me or anyone else that i know of to let them know that there was a hold up in the orders (which would have been more than fine) or to offer a refund or just outright refund on paypal, if it was to much and she didn't feel up to it no explanation required. I'm glad nozmo is sending out orders recently and I hope I get mine. I do feel bad for nozmo because of this whole situation and i love her work a lot and hope she is okay, but to just say "eh who cares" does a great disservice to those who supported her and are her fans.

I dont feel bad for her. I hope she attempts a comeback and gets shot the fuck down and that people continue to shoot her down for a solid year after she comes back. She fucked up in TOO many ways to deserve any pity. It's one thing to take a year to get people their stuff but she also ran off to japan, was still making money off of hiveworks. It should have been as simple as limiting the amount of preorders and doing them in sets.

I dont give a fuck if she's young or whatever idk how many orders she sold but even if it was 100 (which I'm assuming it was a lot more) I see it less as 'people complaining about $15' and more as 'an artist ran away with hundreds to thousands of dollars with seemingly no intention to send them out.

Like her art style or not, I think she's a good story teller and it saddens me that at this rate TAPV will most likely never be finished, but she fucked up big time.

She had talent, a decent fanbase and things could have only gotten better from there but no. It's over for her and she's got no one to blame but her own fucking self.

I wonder what is she up to, now that she's stopped posting on Japanese sites as well? Will she try and reappear with a new identity and style, eventually? She literally has nowhere to run at this point and boy, do I wish someone could get a hold of her irl and force her to admit that she stole thousands of dollars from her fans.

At the very least, her artist friends who tabled with her should be able to get in touch with her? Why has no one done anything yet? Are they still protecting her?

No. 17762

I agree that I think she stole money and knew what she was doing in my opinion. Everything now is just damage control. I remember when I ordered my zines they sold out quick and I was really happy to have snagged a few for myself. But, then nozmo put up more for preorder after the initial ones sell out. So I'm left wondering the whole story of getting overwhelmed doesn't make sense to me because she conciously took the time and effort to update the storenvy page and put "more" up for sale. What doesnt make sense is why didn't she put a cap on how many she was going to sell/ print the seller has all the control. if she was overwhelmed because she got to many orders than she could dish out she should have started form the bottom giving refunds to those who bought last and apologizing that she oversold her merch. Idk with that Japan trip and all it just makes sense she knew what she was doing from the get go.

No. 17763

If her own publishers can't get ahold of her, none of us stand a chance. All she had to do to fix things was refund people or keep them in the loop about the printing process. I back a lot of artist kickstarters and whenever there's a delay and the artists gives an explanation and update, they're always met with "It's okay! Take your time~". If she's not willing to own her mistakes, she's a fraud

No. 17764


Me as well. Might be off topic, but I guess I'll just ask here: while following the Nozmo situation on Twitter, I found a single tweet (https://twitter.com/RforRoo/status/750835360834293761) mentioning that the TAPV site's domain expires at the end of this year. I don't know anything about maintaining websites or how Hiveworks functions, but should fans be concerned about the comic site being a 404 in the future?

No. 17765

I don't know who this is, just saw how people never got a product they ordered.

You can absolutely contact your credit card and file for a claim that you never received the item. You fill out a simple form, and you can even add in some online proof they have not refunded everyone. They will then contact the seller asking for proof of shipment. If they can't provide it, they do a charge back and you get your money back.

Hope you all get refunds. Nothing pisses me off more than scammers.

No. 17766

*credit card company

Also I should add it doesn't matter if a long period of time has passed if there is proof they kept putting things off and not shipping, but telling you they would. So you can do this any time. Good luck anons.

No. 17767

>178481 thank u for posting that information.

and i agree with the others, TAPV was a great comic and imo it had the potential to be even more awesome. i loved how in between chapters she had this really nice art-and-craft interlude with the main characters. it truly was a work of art and i cant begin to express how incredibly disappointed i am that all of this happened. the accountability is just not there and hopefully people can get their refunds back.

No. 17768

Hopefully she'll come back and make an official statement. It would be her last chance. She'll never be able to work again because nobody will trust her. Are there other legal things we can do?

No. 17769

No problem! Happy to help!

>Are there other legal things we can do?
You could perhaps report her to the better business bureau, or whatever equivalence would be in the country she is from/lives in? (Sorry, again I didn't much about her.) But that depends on if she is established as a business or not. If not, you could perhaps report her to that other one which handles people getting scammed on the internet (I think it is FBI related?).

If everyone she scammed reports her and also contacts their CC company or bank, I think that would be very effective.

No. 17770

I think you can report her to paypal and storenvy even though her store is closed. IDK I think the best thing to do is keep awareness up. Like dont be mean because then you'll be dismissed as a 'omigawd h8r'

Play the pity card like 'It's been x-months and I still havent gotten my nozmo books. Starting to feel like she just ran off to japan with my money and I'll never get them' or whatever fits. Cause it's just like to completely disappear and to ACTIVELY try to continue being an artist online in another country is just SO SHITTY.

idk i just keep thinking she literally had it ALL and had time to post stuff otherwise too? She has a webcomic she was getting paid for, sold seemingly hundreds of doujinshi (which is super rare for western artists) and sold other merch??? Like she probably made enough money to go to japan 100% on the money she made and the average artist who is BETTER than her isnt able to do that.

No. 17771

I've only recently learned that she upped the number of copies up for preorder myself and I have to say that I agree with you, at this point.

My theory is that she saw shit sold out fast, saw the potential to make enough to fund her trip and overestimated herself/underestimated the situation and went on to sell more than planned. I believe the anxiety and stuff came into play once she came back and realized that she wouldn't be able to send out all orders nor to send out what she had and refund the others. IMHO the reason for this would be that she didn't have all the doujinshi and charms printed out beforehand (would make sense considering the raised the cap) and when she came back she didn't have enough money left to get everything done.

What she did was shitty and I'd slap anyone trying to defend Nozmo at this point, however I do believe that the root of the problem here is her immaturity and selfishness. I don't think she meant for this to be a scam from the beginning.

I will also say again that I'm surprised none of the fellow artists that know her irl have come forward. People at Hiveworks can only do so much as they've always communicated through email from what I gather, but surely, the people who know what she looks like and have her number, her address could have done something to help.

No. 17772

I've only paid attention to this thread because I thought the art looked cute, but for Paypal, I believe you can only make your claim after no more than 180 days. If the account is tied to your credit card, you might have more luck with a chargeback there.

No. 17773

That is true for paypal, but not your CC company. That is why I said contact your CC company or bank, they can do much more than paypal in a situation like this.

It holds a lot of sentimental value to me as well as the fact that I just thought it was so cute. What Nozmo has done so far is wrong and I hope she eventually comes back in some way, even just with an apology statement as a sign that she is still thinking about this.

No. 17779

No, there's nothing wrong with still liking her work. I'm also still fond of TAPV as a comic and I wish the author wouldn't have done something this stupid and disappeared before it could finish.

All the potential future opportunities her comics work and fanbase (which seemed to only be growing until the incident) could have offered her was probably way more than a quick (and dishonest) buck made off of a doujinshi.

No. 17780

It wasnt hard i just googled, the original url for the comic is under her name, but her internet presence is still pretty nil anyway. Just a fb page with pictures of rin from free that is scrubbed clean otherwise.

No. 17781

I've been seeing Nozmo in the active users section of smackjeeves at random times throughout the day for a couple of weeks now. Unless she's posting comics with the hidden setting on then she's not doing much of anything.
I guess she could be reading one of the two active comics on her reading list but she wouldn't need to login for that.

No. 17782

Isn't her name jasmine but I don't really see what knowing her real name does anyone

No. 17783

Surprised to see Nozmo here! I was recently wondering where she went the past year since I follow her twitter like >>17745
I've been a fan of her since her Death Note/Alternate days so it's surprising to see this from her. She was always really nice, active, and energetic online but seemed to have anxiety problems in real life. I hope she gets this situation sorted out and works on redeeming herself. Sage for no milk to contribute.

No. 17787

also, found a picture of her. remember that one time she posted in TAPV that drawing of herself?? a picture showed up when i typed in her full name and it is really really similar to that drawing she did even tho it was kind of doodley

please don't post it. i'm really disappointed and angry with nozmo too, and i doubt anyone is going to go to her address and fight her, but don't spread that information. she's a person and she deserves some level of privacy

No. 17791

It's not against the rules since she's an adult, so deliver or gtfo. Most people in this thread seem sympathetic to her, so I doubt anyone's gonna pull shit.

It looks as though the domain to petuniaviolet /does/ expire on Dec. 31st 2k16 though! I hope she renews it before then.

No. 17799

Oh thanks. Yeah hope she renews it will be sad to see taatpv go.

No. 17800


Same anon who originally asked about the site here, and I hope she renews it too. :C I'll be sure to back up everything just in case.

Huh, and you mean she is still logging onto Smackjeeves? Idk if you've already decided on whether or not to pm her, but I'm not not sure if it would help resolve things. I'm aware that at least one person who was posting about the Nozmo situation on Twitter/Tumblr had messaged her on Drawr a couple times, though they didn't mention what they wrote… I could be wrong, but I'm assuming other people have sent her messages as well, and judging from the range of people's reactions (concerned, disappointed, sympathetic, unforgiving, upset), it's quite possible that she's received different messages reflecting these. But that could be just be speculation on my part. xD So… I guess my unhelpful answer is anything could happen since we don't know exactly what's going on. She might get scared off again, or she might not.

man do i just wish she'd say something to her fans

No. 17801

*heh, "not not sure", I meant just "not sure"

No. 17802

I wish she would say something too. I feel like just communicating with the buyers/ fans would resolve a lot of the tension and things could get back on track for her or she/ we can move on from this issue.

No. 17803

Do you know an easy way to backup the comic?

No. 17804

I can't think of an "easy" way to back it up, but I could potentially go through the entire comic and save every page, then post them all somewhere else! I'm sad to see it go, too. Even if she doesn't keep it updated, I still love what's already been online to see.

No. 17805


Me again, I'm pretty unknowledgeable on an 'easy' way of backing things up, but I was just going through each page of the comic and saving them in both the Internet Archive Wayback Machine and archive.is. Wayback Machine in case archive.is goes down/has ads someday (they seem to be asking for donations now), archive.is in case the site gets slapped with a robots.txt or something and Wayback can't display the site anymore. There are… probably better ways of going about making sure things are archived, but I'm okay with this since I'm basically rereading the comic again :D Currently archived up to page 298. I'm busy with school so it's a little sporadic, but I'll have it done unless I die or don't have Internet for some reason.

And also I already have the majority of the comic pages saved on a thumb drive somewhere, so there's that

No. 17806

That sounds really smart to me! I was going to save things on a Tumblr or something where the posts were laid out like the general online comic format (each "post" would be a comic page and would take up a page of the tumblr, so it would function like the real deal) and maybe some of nozmo's older art from their blog in case that would be the next thing to go (just based on nozmo's potential future actions).

No. 17807


Thanks xD Setting up a Tumblr thing is a good idea as well! I'd say go for it if the site ends up being taken down(xD)

No. 17813

As far as I know the people who got their orders all resided in Canada. She's too cheap for international shipping and only sent those to placate people after some figured out she was shitposting on drawr daily.

No. 17814

Can you verify this? At one point I looked at the Twitters of people who received their orders and one of them said their location was New Jersey, I think.

No. 17815

I live in Canada and I didn't get my order.

No. 17816

I remember this ask sent on tumblr
>starrwinter asked:
>I can confirm just received my Nozmo order and sketch, so they're definitely on the way which is awesome news! In Canada, so might take a little longer for others.

It would be nice if she sent ALL her Canadian orders but she obviously only sent out a handful.

No. 17817

Yeah, I searched around for a bit and found that ask. I also made a list of tweets I found in which people said they received their orders (if anyone wants and if it's not bad, I could paste it for reference, I guess). It didn't seem to me to be just Canadians, but then again people weren't really disclosing their locations. I think two others were from California though, from poking around.

At any rate, the list of tweets is a rather short one. I don't know how many people placed orders, and how many people just didn't make ecstatic announcements on social media, but it's 9 tweets. And not much else but ppl's reactions afterward, unfortunately :/ Sorry all.

No. 17818

I live in the UK and I got my order quite quickly. Almost as if nothing was wrong at all and no one was running off to Japan.
I only realised like 6 months ago that Nozmo had gone ghost.

Are you even following the conversation here? This isn't about tapv books, she wasn't in charge of sending those out at all.

The only thing tapv kickstarter thing she didn't do was complete the $200 commissions.

No. 17825

Yeah it's not about the tapv books its only about doujinshi. I wish I had one too :-) can you take a pic of the back of the book I'm curious what is on the back cover o can't find any images of it online anywhere?

Hi, there! I had honestly been terrified for over a year that Nozmo had died. I'm thankful to this thread for proving otherwise, but I'm so sad and sorry to everyone who was mistreated in this incident. :(
anyway, I wanted to share the back cover of the TAPV volume for you.. It's a very lovely book. I'm sorry that the picture is a little dark.

No. 17827

Yeah I'm glad Nozmo isn't dead, I wondered about her long silence too. Ugh wish she would overcome this and come back and make things right .wish I had the book! Thanks so much for posting the back cover
it looks so fab!:0

No. 17828

Was one of the people who ordered the $200 commissions. Got everything but the commission. Whenever I asked about it, back when she was still responding, the response I got was always "I'll be doing those soon orz" or something to that effect.

Considering pursuing it through my bank like someone here recommended but it's been a good two years or so, so I'm probably out of luck :\

I'm betting people are gonna say no. I personally feel there's still hope, but Nozmo definitely needs to be able to pull herself together and get stuff done. I wish there was more information about exactly what happened so I could have a definite opinion about the state of things, haha. I want to believe that Nozmo has the desire to set things right and the courage to come back… but I don't know her personally. I would venture to guess that she needs help though.

No. 17832

Well, I finally finished making sure the TAPV site is fully archived on the Wayback Machine and archive.is in case the Dec 31st apocalypse occurs. I hope it doesn't, but it doesn't hurt to be safe. archive.is has duplicates with the old disqus comments because I can't view them on Wayback for some reason. Also the Wayback link below says 602 urls instead of 607 like it should, but I think that's a temporary thing.

No. 17854

She's fucking awful. How can some people still say she can be forgiven? Love yourselves.

That's 6 thousand USD that she won.

I don't think changing her pen name would matter, her artstyle can't be disguised and people would still find out eventually somehow.

Did the person who had her personal details call and speak to her parents? I wonder if they even know their child has stolen thousands from people who trusted her. Dishonor on her family, their cow, etc.

No. 17855

I know. At first i tried not to blame her,ok she has issues,she'll probably work something out eventually. But it's been 2 fucking years and she just seems to don´t give a shit about anything, she just left TAPV behind and never looked back, with all the money she actively stole from many people. I think she deserves to be called a bitch tbh

No. 17856

Okey guys you are right :( I was saying she can be forgiven but then I read this post of the japanese contest that she won and I´m a little dissapointed :( Because I´m starting to thinking that she is just making new comics in Japan so she don´t really care about people of Orient :( if she won all this money she can send all the orders but she did´t so now I just don´t know :( Is hard to me thinking that someone can do something like that so I´m just trying to not judge but… I just don´t know now :( that´s so bad of her.

No. 17857

Yes pleeeaseeee! That would be great! <3 <3 <3

No. 17858

I feel the same as you do. To me, people can be forgiven if they come forward, admit they messed up, and then do what is needed to correct it. I'm not saying that she should be forgiven as things are right now. If she returns, acknowledges everything, GETS HELP, and fixes it, then that'll be good. I feel as if with the nozmo.tumblr.com site and her using the same nickname for the newer contest (though I guess it should kept in mind that she could have entered that one from anywhere in between March 1 and August 31; the spurt of doujin orders being received was from July 1 to July 10) are signs that she wishes to return at some point. She just needs to take the steps to do so.

No. 17859

Some of you guys must be tripping.

The doujinshi orders were from May 2015.

Since she stopped shitposting on twitter, she has posted Sweetie and won prize money from two different japanese manga competitions in 2016.

What signs of returning? She posted a few orders after people found her active on drawr and then disappeared again. If anything, this is a sign she doesn't give a fuck that people know she's alive but is ignoring what she can do to make things right.

Also keeping to the same pen name only helps her build her brand if she can point to her past work as her portfolio. What's the point of pretending to be a new artist if others can easily pick out her art style anyway.

I can see your logic about the pen name, but using it has made finding her extremely easy via Google. Although I guess I don't know how people found her on the .jp comic site (I'm curious if it was or wasn't by search engine). Doesn't this also make things easier for people intent on telling Japanese fans on what Nozmo's done? I'm not saying you're wrong; it just seems like something I'd avoid doing. This thread is the first thing that turns up on Google when you search for "Nozmo" in English, and is still among the first results in Japanese.

No. 17864

Her new manga is up.


She's fucking shameless, her author comments there indicate clearly to me that she will only continue to do stuff in the japanese market and hopes to start a serialization there.

Nozmo-apologists need to realize she doesn't deserve to be defended further.

You're assuming japanese publishers would care about what she has done. If they think she can sell and might have an established fanbase, why wouldn't they publish her work? Clearly she still has international fans who don't care what she did and just want her to start drawing again. So why would japanese readers care? It didn't happen to them.

Also obviously what Nozmo has done is not comparable to the heinous acts of Woody Allen or Roman Polanski, but those two still have fans saying their body of work is more important than what they've done to actual human beings. Most people are just not gonna care as long as they are entertained (by her comics), that's how Nozmo will get away with this. Or rather, is already getting away with it.

It seems like something you'd avoid doing because I'd wager you wouldn't have just flounced off with other people's money either but Nozmo has done both. Your logic won't apply to her behavior.

No. 17865

She is an horrible person :(

No. 17870


A serialization, huh. Well I guess I'm out on being neutral now. I'm disappointed. If Google Translate on that link is correct, her statement on winning in the contest includes 'trying to continue to do her best'. People have lost their money and TAPV has died with no forewarning, with only its fans to ensure it doesn't disappear from the Internet entirely. Nozmo, I don't think this is your best.

In the meantime, this new comic has blown up a little more than "Johnny and Love" did amongst Japanese Twitter people: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=nozmo&src=typd I feel a little ill…

At this rate would an online petition be a bit more organised to send to the publisher instead of individuals trying to contact them through the website? We could perhaps even find someone to properly translate the open letter to the company.

No. 17872

You guys could all contact the payment method you used (paypal, bank, CC) and get a claim going. If you all ban together and do it and say you have proof she never shipped what you bought, you have a case.

I have seen this done before in collector comms with people who ran off with a lot of money and it works.

A few of you just need to tally together the numbers and perhaps get a group going of those who got ripped off (maybe exchange contact info?) so you have more weight to your case. If you can also provide proof that she is still active online despite not shipping goods, your bank/cc/paypal will do something about it.

This is so much like Dakota to me, where she needs us, her Western fanbase, until she doesn't. "We're so dramatic" when really they're the one that caused the drama to begin with. I have zero clue what's wrong with Nozmo because this is so self-created. If I were her, I'd just come out honestly and say "I blew the money on a trip to Japan to achieve my manga-ka dreams and you'll never get what you payed for."

Does anyone think she'll ever come back?

No. 17882

I'll have to say. No it's been two years since she took doujinshi orders and abandoned taatpv and months since she was on drawr. She has obviously decided to leave the west behind and try to fool the eastern audience into thinking she is great. When she is a scum thief who had no respect or any appreciation for people who liked her and her art.

No. 17883

I honestly think that people who still support her are really stupid -_-U but lately I realize that people everywhere are so stupid with all the problems in the world or internet, I just tired of people in general I can't even read all the good things of her in twitter that's pissed me out they just don't care about the bad thing that she does, she is literally a thief -_-U Sorry guys I really upset

No. 17884

she really needs to give refunds to at least salvage some of this situation…it's past the point of no return and she's just pushing on and trying to ignore what she did. i called but went to voicemail and i wasn't sure it was even her so i didn't leave a message.

yeah for her it does seem over. too bad/ i don't think she post anywhere for the time being. i hope she at least feels \a\\ bit ashamed for deceiving people and leaving them dry

No. 17886

I used to really enjoy TAPV and I'm sad I won't see it finished. If she scams her eastern audience (which she might try to do) then she'll run out of places to hide. Part of me hopes she gets in trouble there and is forced to confront her mistakes.

No. 17887

Part of me thinks she won't try to scam them. Everyone's shitty weeaboo dream is to be a ~*~*manga-ka in japan*~*~ and she seems to be getting her foot in the door, so why mess it up?

I don't think scamming western fans was her intention, as much as it was "lets get these books out!" turned into "oh i dont need my western fans to get big in japan time to leave them behind" and then just got up and left with no regard to her old fans, rather than "i'm malicious and plan to outright scam them from the start"

No. 17888

Pretty sure it was was malicious and for sure was willful negligence. No matter if she saw her dreams coming true and wanted to pursue her comic dreams in Japan she just fucked off everyone. She didnt owe anything to her audience and supporters and to decide to have radio silence on her social media and to give up taatpv is her decision. But she hell of a lot did owe the people who put money into this to get a product we never received shit a response on wtf she was doing and just issue a fucking refund. She was malicious and I hope she can live knowing she is a literal thief and con. Overwhelmed fine but no excuse to not just give back what she owes which is as easy as one click.

No. 17889


I think it was at least in part malicious. Once she realized she didn't her western fans, she blew everyone off without so much as an apology or an update about where people's products went. A decent person would have at least apologized.

Can someone explain to be how she got so big because her art looks extremely mediocre at best. Was she just one of those inexplicable tumblr BNFs?

No. 17891

My uninformed response: I followed her for her original works, and so did others. Dunno about people who bought her fan stuff. Not sure how I feel about her art style these days (and I'm not a critic, lel), but I always liked her storytelling and characters. And remember she won those Japanese contests, which wasn't fan stuff. YMMV I suppose though.

No. 17892


She was a good storyteller and some of the more experimental chapter covers for TAPV were very visually interesting. She was also a big presence in a lot of fandoms like Yu Gi Oh.

No. 17893

I think it's telling that everything she worked to establish is gone imo bc this is the first link when you type in her name now. Which tells a lot and idon't see that changing in a long time.

No. 17894

Basically this >>17891
I followed her pre-tumblr (aka dA years) and she had a recognizable style and a fun sense of humor. She also would actually update her smackjeeves comics which was impressive considering most comics would give up around 10 pages in. Her art isn't the best but it's recognizable enough to tell if an alt account is hers and her storytelling beats out a lot of webcomic artists

Anon here who scanned the zines:

I'm very happy that people got to see content they didn't get to and that it helped those who needed it.

Also about the PDF lmao no worries (it was worth to scan it for you guys who got cheated by her)
And with the yugi oh doujin that would be great to see! If you ever get free time to scan it We appreciate the offer!

But yeah after coming back to check this forum it's fucking unbelievable that she did this, I meet her at a con in person and she seemed so down to earth and well liked amoung the Vancouver artist community especially, can't believe things turned out this way.

I have no sympathy for her for what she's done and if she ever gets caught in it, I guess as others say we can't tell for sure what she is thinking but the hole is dug in way too deep for her now, it's sad to see someone do this to people in general and again I hope she gets a big wake up call one day for thinking she can just sweep it under a rug cause that's so disrespectful even if that wasn't her intention in the first place.

As they say, what goes around comes around.

No. 17897

say, can't we hire someone that can find her, like a private detective or something, it sounds dumb i know, but i don't think she's ever coming back

No. 17898

It's pretty disappointing her behavior. and especially how old fan/friends of hers who seem to be cheering for her on twitter about her comic.
If it was an honest mistake of hers why did she run away and go silent? some of her mutual followers on twitter seem like they havent spoken to her since she left either.

I would be happy for her success too but it all just seems so shady running off to another community after scamming people. If only there was a way to communicate to the JP community about her. I honestly feel like she knows/hopes the language barrier will keep her safe from the drama she caused.

No posts on her drawr since June, not aware of any postings elsewhere. I noticed she hasn't updated nozmo.tumblr.com Works page with the Underground manga.

In random news, I found that one of the lucky people to get their doujins last July (https://twitter.com/princeofichis/status/749039984552927232) got into hot water themselves for not sending stuff that people paid for: http://pacaprincessholly.tumblr.com/post/157752163513/do-not-buy-from-prince-ichiichi-art-scammer So that's… sad and mildly amusing.

I'm sure she wouldn't be able to live with herself if this issue went unresolved.

I ordered some of her yowapeda zines back in may of 2015… never heard back from her again, read this thread, assumed I was never going to get my shit… until I got both the zines I ordered today. I'm glad she's doing right…. even tough it took 2 years

No. 17960

I believe Nozmo is just staying low up until she gets everything delivered.
Remember her kickstarter? The people who bought her stuff are more than she anticipated, I think she didn't thought it through of how famous she is in the online art community. I believe she sent the finish work to her sister and let her handle the rest like transportation, etc.

No. 17961

Just wanted to post on here I got my order today from Nozmo yay I never doubted she would be back and set things right! I'm pretty sure Nozmo did the sending out of packages etc bc she went above and beyond and did sketches in all the zines, put a big original drawing in as extra, plus she put a cute sketch on the packaging too. So I'm sure it's Nozmo mostly with ppl helping her out maybe. I'm glad she is coming through and I'll be anticipating her return online if she feels up to it , but I wouldnt be afraid to bc there are a bunch of people who support and love what they do.

lmao I find it hilarious how people are still licking her ass after she took 2 years to mail it out, when she wasn't even the one who did it, her sister did.

Nozmo's stories and characters were phenomenal, and unfortunately some people can give out from stress. I got my order and yeah I was a little pissed, but I just want tapv to continue.

No. 17965


Nah, no ass licking, more like "damn im glad I finally got my shit after 2 years instead of never getting what I paid for". Because it did not feel cool at all, nor do I ever want to "uwu support nozmo-chan" again after I and hundreds of others paid for her escape ticket to Japan.
So her (or sister, whatever) sending out our shit and being able to finally put it past us feels good

No. 17966

Yeah to each their own you don't have to like her art or stories. People have different tastes in things and that doesn't make one thing bad over the other it's personal preference. I mean having waited for 2 years is pretty pathetic without any word from the creator to let customers know there would be a delay. But I'm glad I got my order and it shows that she does still care enough to give ppl what she owed them. She could have just issued a refund,it would have been quicker, but she is pulling through, making an effort and putting in drawings for the extra wait which she didn't have to do. Idk why ppl keep saying her sister sent them bc it's obv she did them(not saying she didn't help pack and stuff) her sister couldn't have drawn in all the books and put extra sketches in or drawn on the mailing envelopes like they were. Any yeah I'm glad to put this to rest and move on.

No. 17967

Just wondering: is any of you lucky recipients from Europe? I'm located in one of the post-socialit countries and it feels like the chance I get my package is somewhat lower.

No. 17968

I just got the Yu4 Arc-V doujin I ordered from her store 2 years ago in my mailbox today. Better late than never and I'm glad that at least in the end she wasn't planning on being a 100% con artist, even if it took forever and a half for a 20 page book.

I forgot I even ordered the book until it showed up. It's the only piece of merch I ever bought from her store so it honestly wasn't a big deal for me personally.

alright, in your words then, what makes this worth putting up with a scammy artist and waiting years for? it looks like a weird recolour multiverse yugioh?

No. 17980

Well you called it shit so it sounds like hate but if you do hate it is ok it's your opinion. I mean also it's not really about putting up with it. It was forced upon them in a situation that was out of their control. People mostly wanted what they paid for and they gave money in the first place because they enjoyed the artist and their stories. I mean if you downloaded the yugioh doujinshi that's pretty much Nozmos art style so if you hate it based on art you probably won't like their other stuff. you can google their tumblr if you wanted to look at their other orig comics, taatpv was great and a lot of people are sad about it just ending abruptly.

No. 17981

Obviously I didn't know I would have to wait 2 years for some niche fanbook when I first ordered it, not knowing exactly how much of a flake the author was going to be. It was pretty much what I expected it to be since there was a PV and I had read through TAPV.

The doujin was made before Arc-V nosedived and became the shittiest anime (even for a merch anime) known to mankind but I'm still a fan of the characters (or what they used to be) so I enjoyed it, especially since the source material itself failed to deliver on the main characters' interactions.

Also very obviously, I won't be supporting any of Nozmo's future endeavors if she ever works up the gall to try launching any projects on the western side of the internet again. Wouldn't be unwarranted if the people burned by her spread the word about her like wildfire on twitter if she tried anything again. She burned her bridges and should face the furthest extent of the potential consequences in that case, which is about the most anyone can do.

No. 17982

And why are you surprised this late into the thread despite this thread being months and months old with links to all her other works? I don't like Questionable Content and think Gunnerkrigg Court is way overrated, but I'm not going to sit in a thread dedicated to those webcomics and flail around asking why people like a thing.

No. 17983

i mean, i called a spade a spade. go look at axel ash's thread or holly brown's or any other art-related cow; they all get way harsher criticism than this, and no one cries that it's anything personal. the tone change in this thread makes me wonder where a lot of you came from and if you're really frequent users of the rest of this board.

also it's beyond just the art style, there's just not much talent to the layout or the paneling either. really, it looks amateurish. it's surprising to see a thread full of so many hopeful fans for something that looks like axel ash could have done the layout.

>Obviously I didn't know I would have to wait 2 years for some niche fanbook when I first ordered it
>Also very obviously, I won't be supporting any of Nozmo's future endeavors
this is fair, and i'm also curious how many people WOULD reorder after being burned by that, even if she's apparently sending out at least some orders now. i definitely agree that her shitty attitude should ruin her career, regardless of the quality of the work she puts out.
(also, thank you for being reasonable and not getting super defensive like the other anon shouting HAAATE)

to be totally honest, i skimmed this thread when it first got traction when it was first posted and then never read it again until now because it became a weirdly hopeful circlejerk. most threads like this would have devolved into pitchforks and torches, not having anons dreaming that the artist would keep doing more or being happy to see her continued works elsewhere.

>I'm not going to sit in a thread dedicated to those webcomics and flail around asking why people like a thing.

this is what makes me say what i said above about the tone of this thread being weird and wondering if y'all are really regular posters. it's lolcow. we're here to tear people apart for the nitpickiest of things. this isn't a fan thread, it's a hate thread on a hate site. why is it so ridiculous to think that someone would come shit on it?

No. 17984

> it's lolcow. we're here to tear people apart for the nitpickiest of things. this isn't a fan thread, it's a hate thread on a hate site
Except that naturally most people in here would be fans (or former fans) of her work since unlike the /pt/ darlings Nozmo is very closed off about anything in her personal life and the most she would talk about on twitter is whatever tv show she's into.

In fact, it's that lack of info of her life that led to this thread. Since she's as transparent as a brick wall about any issues or logistics problems there might have been with the orders, which was a very retarded move on her part.

No. 17985

I agree it's was the static silence and lack of courtesy that made all this snow ball the way it did. I'm a poster since last year and just got what I ordered from them and am glad to put it behind me( I still like Nozmos work but I will never put money behind it again.) The purpose of "lolcow" or not I feel like the purpose of this thread was for us users who actually bought a doujinshi and got boned (or people who follow and knew Nozmos work) to talk and vent about the current situation and see who if anyone had received anything or head from noz. Not to just randomly hate just to do it as it's not useful at all

Every single character on the main cast got majorly shafted in some way. The MC became insufferable, even relative to the average shounen MC, so it's not like there were any high (or even average) standards going on around this toyetic show.

The main cast spent a lot more time on irrelevant bullshit dealing with unlikeable or boring one-off/side character nobodies rather than actually interacting with each other. Main cast interaction is one thing all its predecessors got at least halfway right even if they're also heavily flawed in other ways.

There's more but I dropped the show somewhere mid-way. It all led to the show eventually becoming the most infamous and lowest rated anime on nico, which is the most visited anime streaming site in Japan.

Except my point only was that you said that you were surprised there were any fans in here when it shouldn't be a surprise. I entirely understand why Nozmo's art would be unappealing to some people, no one's going to like everything. So why are so eager to tell everyone 10x you don't like a thing when everyone heard you the first time? Comes off as kinda insecure.

99% of the people who even recognize the name "Nozmo" and bother with this thread would've found her through her comics and art since she was very reserved about her personal stuff. Artists who get mentioned negatively here are often those blog more about their lives or are some kind of 'internet personality', or have a style that's purposely a lot more repulsive in the name of being a rebel against normal beauty norms.

Has she apologized for her behavior and going MIA on people who gave her money?

No. 18001

I think you should already know the answer to that lmao. If she apologizes and finishes tapv and never takes commissions/sells things when she can't handle it, I'll be fine. I'm just saying it's leagues better than being scammed and attacked for it.

No. 18002

Yeah I knew the answer but wanted to ask just in case. Until she apologizes, she's still in the hot seat. I mean, it's lolcow. Cows are here because they don't really take responsibility for their actions. It's good that she's finally sending out all of the stuff, but she's still mute about the whole thing.

I know. Some part of me has hope for TAPV to return one day. It really meant a lot to me.
I just can't accept that she's really never going to return to her fans here in the west.
I wish there was something I could do or say to make her come back. I loved her work, and she's my biggest inspiration as an artist.
It hurts that she'd leave us. She meant the world to her fans. :(

I wouldn't even mind never getting my order. I just really wish she'd finish that comic.
It was amazing, and I really poured all of my love into it. It got me through one of the toughest times in my life. I'm still so attached to the characters and the story.

I remember her being very sweet when she messaged me back in the day.

No. 18029

Well, their popularity came from Mangamagazine.com (Before they went bankrupt) Their work was being advertised ALL OVER the site. So they were able to get a huge following. All of the other comics didn't even come CLOSE to getting the amount of exposure that her work got. So the popularity of the story came from the unfair advantage that she had over EVERYONE else. She was pretty much monopolizing the site and earning maybe 70% of the pie as a result of this. As to the art, I guess that's up to personal preference.

I was put off by the art style at first but the variety of similar interests is too much of a coincidence for me. Plus she could definitely have adjusted her style to put people off her track. This picture definitely reminds me of her style though. I also saw her twpf link says she may post “incest, noncon, underage, shota etc”.

Okay, does anyone else think it's more than just a coincidence that nozmo and this person happened to be into the same old non-mainstream anime in the same year? In addition to this person also loving chat noir, komaeda, and arc v as well as the art style, it just seems like too much of a coincidence.

By the way, do you think Nozmo browses this thread? It's the first thing that appears when you google her. There's something I'm considering but obviously it won't work if she already knows about it.

nozmo definitely browses this place. just probably not all the time.


One of the biggest factors that sells me on the fact that this is nozmo is the fact that she first started posting using Japanese, then later to english. Her older works are also somehow cleaner and neater than the ones she worked on before? This twitter page was also made in feburary, which would make some sense in the timeline of nozmo disappearing and then reappearing on Japanese sites later on.

No. 18055

File: 1543291402677.jpg (103.46 KB, 937x578, 1.jpg)

Hey so… this probably wasn't the smartest course of action but I just went ahead and asked Nozmo if the account was hers(and asked if she'd return to social media), and she responded with this. Less than 2 hours later I found out that account went on private(I already saved some drawings so I'm not as concerned). She also posted an apology on smackjeeves and said she'd continue the comic http://todd-petunia.smackjeeves.com/comics/2702439/001-call-at-7/

And you may take this with a grain of salt, but a friend told me they saw the account's recent tweets before privating, something along the lines of "I'm a big idiot" and "I love my fave artist so much". So do you think this person really is just some Nozmo impersonator?

No. 18056

damn this is so weird lmao, I definitely think it’s just some kind of skin walker who really looks up to nozmo (obsessively copying her style, liking all of the same series/characters bc she does) because the style is more of a cheap imitation than really feeling like her work imo.

No. 18057

Yeah, that's definitely a possibility. To be honest I'm not sure because there's also a possibility of Nozmo lying and altering the style to throw people off. I wouldn't be surprised if Nozmo did have those kinds of weird fans, but I don't get why one would just pop up in February after 2 years of her being gone. She also hasn't posted on her drawr since April, so it'd make sense if it was because she got more active on twitter.

No. 18058

I checked again and it looks like she opened the account back up. I wonder why.

That's weird as fuck, but I'm leaning towards skinwalker. The art looks more rough than hers/a slightly worse version of it and there's nothing on that Twitter that would warrant denying owning it.

Gotta love how people just dropped being critical of Nozmo in her own thread for the sake of focusing on a skinwalker when Nozmo herself doesnt even have an original style.
No surprise considering how excited people seemed when she was back, cause who cares that shes a big fat fucking scammer.

No. 18063

Yeah, plus the apology she posted on smackjeeves was pretty shit and completely ignored the whole scamming issue. I think people on smackjeeves are actually completely unaware of what she did, judging by the replies.

No. 18064

Just to add on, this actually gave me a stronger feeling the account was hers. She doesn’t seem bothered by the account at all and complimented the art, but then the account all of a sudden mentions its fave artist and goes on private? Of course it ended up unlocking but it’s just…..strange.

No. 18065


That hardly seem like evidence that this artist is actually Nozmo in the hidding. Like, no shit that artist locked their account, their art/account is being shared on here, they could've just panicked and decided to lock.

I'm digging up their tweets and I've noticed a shit ton of consistent grammatical errors, which would make sense since they appear to be japanese– or to not speak english fluently, at least.


They regularly fuck up past tenses and butcher words ('tought' instead of 'thought', 'ayone' instead of 'anyone') and probably some other stuff I'm too lazy to look up.

Even the person who contacted Nozmo, @alienlesbians/@nymria https://twitter.com/meowzerswowzers/status/1067263480837926913 ) and her friends are publicy tweeting about it/potentially planning to brigade ( https://twitter.com/necronyamicon/status/1067224805013774338 ) , so imo it's not farfetched to think someone might have contacted Komanguito upon being posted here, causing them to panic and lock their account.

They unlocked pretty quickly though, so it seems doubtful that person is actually trying to hide anything.

No. 18066

They've said that they're from Peru. I don't think this is Nozmo either.


No. 18067

I think that's why she felt comfortable returning there, most people were probably just there to read the comic. Twitter and tumblr would be much harder to get away with.

Yeah, it's obviously not her, and honestly even if it somehow was it doesn't really matter compared to her sneaky return.

No. 18068

There is a reason to deny owning the account. Their twpf link says they may post shotacon/noncon and there is some art like that on there, which would pretty much destroy whatever's left of Nozmo's reputation in the art community on twitter and tumblr if it was hers. I'm actually starting to believe it's not her anyway, because of the shitty grammar and Peru thing already mentioned. She's still scummy but it is pretty worrying that someone's out there imitating her while posting shotacon porn.

No. 18069

Despite what it says I didn't see any porn on there skimming it, and like >>739293 said, it's just a weird conspiracy to focus on when something's finally happening with the actual nozmo.

No. 18070

What else is there? Nozmo posted her apology and ignored addressing the scamming issue like she always has for the past 3 years. You could try contacting her on sj about it but she might ignore that too. At best I guess you could comment on her comic so fans on that site would be aware too?

No. 18071


everyone who agrees with this is pretty blind lmao. yall never seen an artist knockoff before? just because they draw the same content and pairings doesn't mean it's them, artists get people into fandoms all the time. also, this person commented on nozmo's comic with a vector icon. no point in commenting on her own comic with another acc. the style is a sad copycat version of nozmo's but the layout/anatomy/proportions are so butchered it's…completely off.

No. 18072

This thread really went to shit with the baseless conspiracy theories and desperate shota porn accusations huh

"The eyes in this picture remind me of Nozmo and they share some interests, it's clearly her!!!", "they talked about having a favourite artist and locked their account, PRETTY DAMNING EVIDENCE!!!!" are yall retarded

The style is actually pretty generic ("copycat"'s pulls it off better imo) and it's normal for people in japanese fandoms to use drawr. Who cares

No. 18073

I mean it was just conjecture to begin with. I didn't mean to stir it up this much. I just thought the art style was close and their interests were similar enough that it could have been her. Oh well, the peru thing pretty much debunked it.

Tbh I am glad for the comic, I think a lot of people will only read tapv without forgetting what she did, and if she does merch again and people will order some, then I'm sorry for these people cause they would have seems to not understanfd wtf was going on during these 3 years. Back then when it was around a year I would say so, if she would have came back with an apology it would have been okay, but the fact that she went to Japan made comics, forgetting the west side and hiding the things to her japanese fans… no like give a clear explanation. Why did she came back when she was broke ? I read her apology but still man, she could have tried to do something back then when she had money, maybe paying back the persons who have ordered. Sorry for that long ass message, but I am going to say it again I am just happy to see my first and fave comic getting finish ed that's all.

Newfags need to understand saging but also that these threads are for Nozmos entire cow behavior.

her style is far too distinct for her to ever hide behind a different name or account

she could have laid low forever, considering she was lucky enough not to have that big of a fall out from her initial scamming, but I guess she can't live without the attention of online fandoms

DM is already a weird style but works but this….this is just so hard to look at. Her style was always kind of ugly but it was like…acceptable ugly.

Does anyone else still think about Tapv?

I honestly wish I could just pay her to continue it or just give a summary of the rest of what was going to happen. I don't know why but I still get weirdly emotional about this series, guess it just hit the right spot at a formative time for me.(necro)

No. 298006

fuck, i was so excited to see the thread bumped.
but yes, i wish we got a conclusion. sucks we will never get that

No. 298041

At least I'm not the only one dealing with feels about it still.

Wonder if there's anyway to convince her to start up again like a patreon goal, but I'd say after all this tapv might be kinda traumatizing to return to.

Worst part is my favourite character was a minor one so there's precious little content to revisit

If anyone wants to reread Tapv here's the link
