Tomoko & Akira for Asians (pre-dating Kumi)



Which issues do these characters appear in?



Tomoko Yoshida first appeared back in 1991 in the semi-obscure ACP giveaway comic, ARCHIE AND HIS PALS IN... THE PEER HELPING PROGRAM.
(As seen here on the cover, seated next to Jughead.)



After that, she didn't reappear until BETTY #150 (Nov. 2005), after which she started appearing (mostly in B&V stories) with more frequency for a year or two... then faded back into obscurity. She still turned up on occasion, even a couple of years back, but there are less and less opportunities for her to do anything meaningful in the stories as time goes on... shrinking panel space at ACP.


Here's a couple of lists...

+1 to DR for Tomoko -- Akira is her (slightly) younger brother ...

Kumi Tanura -- first appeared in the new story in Betty & Veronica Digest #190 (not Double) and was in the multi-part "Battle of the BFFs" story paired with Brigitte Reilly ... plus a few other random appearances scattered over a ½ dozen different stories and issues

It seem like they got rid of Ethel,  she hasn't been in the Archie reboot or the Jughead reboot. Even the show hasn't casted an actress for Ethel.


That's terrible!

60sBettyandReggie

What was the name of a character we were talking about in the old forum, a boy that was Betty's love interest for a few issues? I think someone mentioned he was a reporter?

BettyReggie

Betty dated Adam & Jason & Reggie  & Trey. That's only I could think of.

Dexter Howard, WPBJ Channel 10 news photographer? From BETTY AND ME #197-200?

If you change the art style, there's probably no point in Ethel existing any more. Her only function as a character was to be the one who wasn't pretty like the other girls, an awkward ugly duckling who chased Jughead relentlessly and was sort of his nemesis. I mean, let's face it, those were her only real defining characteristics.

But it really doesn't matter now, if Erica Henderson's drawing JUGHEAD. Now everybody's ugly looking, even the girls who are supposed to be pretty, like Betty. Makes it kind of difficult to get the point across through the artwork that Ethel is supposed to be significantly less attractive than most of the other girls.

What would Erica H come up with if asked to draw "ugly"?  Do we want to know? Anyway, she's leaving so hopefully we won't have to ...

Ethel? Tall, skinny, good at sports, nice, but low self-esteem -- I'd say she mostly chases Jug because she wants a boyfriend and he's conspicuously unattached ... no one is chasing her and she doesn't believe she can compete -- you don't need ugly for that ...

Ah, yes. That's the one. The very elusive Dexter 'cause I still can't find any pics of him.
If anyone has those Betty issues please share them with us. At least some panels.

I actually liked the older version who took the universe just piling on her in stride. The low esteem thing happened mostly with Al Hartley. Mr. !!! at the end of every sentence. :)

I just can't believe we haven't seen Ethel at all in first 5 Jughead issues. Do you think Trula Tywst will be in any issue. Jughead & Trula love hate relationship was awesome. I miss their fights.  I think should be since January Andrews had be in one or two issues.

Oldiesmann

She has to show up at some point. It'll be fun to see what they do with her.

Great Gazoo

I agree both Ethel and Trula have to be used at some point in the near future at least in the Jughead Reboot. I am thinking Ethel would appear first, but you never know. I hope they use Ethel in a very similar way as they used her in the classic Archie comics where she is chasing Jughead and trying to lure him with food. As for Trula they have to have her using her wit against Jughead in someway.
