Ask Roodaka is a comedy series written by ShadowBionics and is considered to be his best work by many fans. It was started in 2006 and has spawned many spin-offs and established many characters that would appear later on in future comedies of ShadowBionics
The show starts off as a typical run of the mill "Ask so and so" comedy featuring Roodaka, who is arrogant, bossy, and downright vicious person to everyone around her except only her closest friends. As the show moves forward, the characters get involved in various storyline arcs that involve them gettiing into some bizarre stiuations thmust get out of. A list of these arcs are:
- The Nightmare Begins
- Sidorak the Butter Baron
- A Night at the JailHouse
- Sidorak the Glutton
The comedy is said to be ShadowBionics' best work to date (although some argue A Day in the life of Teridax? might be) and is still enjoyed by readers. It lasted a long time and is Shadows' longest running series (not including all the chapters ADITLOT lost in The Great Dataclysm).. It has spawned various spin-offs, including Vezon Tv, A Day in the life of Teridax? (and The Shadowed One's Ridiculous Mission trilogy to that extent), Channel 5 News, VAHKI, and Crazy Siddy's Discount Warehouse and Import Emporium (the latter three are considered failures, however).
Sadly since it relied so much on reader participation, Shadows found it hard at times to try and continue it, so he often resorted to putting the characters in often bizarre and humorous situations to keep it going. In the end, ShadowBionics briefly converted the show into a talk show-type comedy, a similar move by one of his friends Onatu with his comedy Ask Thok! when it suffered a similar fate. Realizing it was a mistake, Shadows briefly converted it back to its original format before he ultimately decided to end it right there and he used all of his remaining ideas for ADITLOT.
