Seems like every time I come back, I need to apologize for leaving! Sorry I keep silently slipping in and out of cyberspace, everybody. When life demands that I put Hotarugari on hold, I hate to have to admit that to myself, let alone to all of you who have been patiently waiting for me, so I usually don't say anything at all and struggle to make a comeback.

But this year that changes! Gonna buckle down and work on getting this comic completed, and not let it go into hiatus anymore. Hotarugari is still ongoing, and I want to thank you all for sticking with me and this comic until the very end!!

Oh, and Happy New Year! Let's make this one glorious!

Update Delay!

Sorry, guys! Won't be able to update Hotarugari this week or the next since I have to help my parents out with a family thing. (We're having like... a second Thanksgiving?!) and then spend a week in Anaheim. But next, next Sunday maybe?!

Brief Hiatus Oct.16th

Setting aside Hotarugari briefly, until sometime between Oct. 6th - 16th, to work on my portfolio and pull it together for a review submission deadline. The amount of work I need to get done before then is killer, but 'll give it my best shot and hopefuilly I can land an interview! Thanks for being so understanding, and I'll have more for you guys later!



- Thank you, bro! TUT

Another delay

Darnit! No update this week either! My dad and I have to go to my grandmother's house today, (7 hour drive,) to move furniture for three days. Eh heh... so fun, right? T~T This came out of the blue, so I wasn't prepared for it, but I'll be back Tuesday. Thank you guys for being so patient!

Dog agility, bees, and other concerns...

Sorry! No update this weekend! (But you guys are used to that by now, right? XD) My mom accidentally injured her knee, so I've had to take her place in a dog agility competition with my aunt's dog. On the side, my bees arrived, so I'm learning how to become a beekeeper from our neighbor, and I got a cat rather by accident. (I'm afraid of cats, so that was unexpected!) It's stuff like this that always seems to happen when I'm trying to work on this comic. TAT But the next page is almost ready, so I'll get it done as soon as I'm able!
