So much to say! I know, I know, this comic is supposed to be updated WEEKLY! I have my excuse-er, reasons for being late, like I always do, but I have much more important things to say this time. :3

I need to give super thanks to a few people, like LanternLeaf on DA, who drew Hotarugari characters for her entry in the DAiManga’s Halloween contest! You can check it out here. So awesome! ;A; And if you’re on DA, and you like manga, you should join, DAiManga!!

Also, Hotaru makes a cameo appearance in Airse’s comic, White Noise! Check it out here! Thank you so much, Airse! QuQ

And I need to thank my family for being so awesome to me! This week, I was having the closest thing to a complete breakdown that I’ve ever had, and they helped me get through it. Th-Thank you, family! ;A;

And finally, you! For reading and supporting Hotarugari and being so patient with me. I could never ask for better fans than you guys!!

Now I've got to get back to getting these pages in on time!


P.S. A new page, Link, has been added! Now you can get coding to link back to Hotarugari as well as check out some other awesome comics on SJ! I'll be adding links as I go!


- Hee, I was hoping you'd like it! Although don't get too excited! You know who's not gonna let this match happen, right?
adfkajdfa, I'm so sorry! This week was the worst that I've had in so long, and I haven't been able to reply yet. I will reply now! *sobs sweet tears of utter joy* Y-Your avatar... Q0Q

Jazeki - Yup! I'm so much better now! And um... sorry, no. XD The match takes place after this story, so you guys most likely won't see it. @^@

godmoderncommander - Haha, yeah! You'd think they'd be moving away from this place with haste! There's an angry spider lady in that hole just besides them. XD

ZivXanthus - Yay! I'm happy you like it! This is one of my favorite parts of the story!
And I'm so excited too! >w< I can't wait to wear my Hotaru shirt and show it off to everybody I know! There's been a slight delay on the shipping, though, (the company I'm ordering from still hasn't sent them to me! I'm trying to find out why! ;A;) but I'll post more about the shirts today so those still waiting will know what's goin' on!
And I <3 U back! You ARE awesome! Never deny the truth!!

torchthewolf - Aw, thanks! Yeah, Hotaru is probably the worst at transforming ever, (as apparent by the fox ears still on his head in human form,) but he is extremely creative and confident, so there is a chance he'd win this match. (like, 1000 to 1, maybe. XD)
Um, I'd rather not have anyone advertise for their comic here in their comments. (Normally when I see it, I think it's spam, and it gets deleted. :S) Sorry, but thanks for asking!

Sindorei - Soon! VERY SOON! >8D Yumi will definitely be yelling at the top of her lungs at Hotaru about this whole fiasco in the next coming pages. Sorry it's going so slow though. Haha, yeah! But it'd have to get married to White Noise first! >w<

pwii - Haha, no, no! As amazing as that sounds, the transformation match is a bit more complicated than that. XD

MegamanZDevil - Ffff, I know! I can't believe I'm doing this! Why do I always give everyone awesome visions of the future that will never come to pass?! >_>;
You sweet thing you! ;//A//; Adkfjaghs, OMG! I can't wait to see it~!!! <333 Sneak peek! Sneak peeeeeek!! \OuO/ (And you know... there's another new character coming at the end of this chapter. XD There might be too many characters in Hotarugari for you to draws!)

Airse - I'm so happy you like Hotaru so much! <333 And thank you again! You're so nice~!! *hugz*

ChiakiAida - Haha, yes! And Hotaru is always picking fights! XD But the transformation match is a special fight in which they transform into either animals or objects to see who can best the other. Hotaru has always failed miserably in all his transformation fights before because he can't transform into his forms completely. But he still hopes to beat tanuki someday! *u* Oh yeah, I forgot! I'll put tanuki up on the characters page after I post the next page of Hotarugari. I hope you will like him more once you read more about him!

alexisneo - Hee hee, thanks! I started drawing each sparkle individually, but it was taking me forever, so I just made a Photoshop 7 brush and sparkled him up that way! <3

Sound Synthesis - Oh how I wish that were true!
And nah, that smell... that's just me.

RainRose - Yeah, but it's too bad Yumi is going to ruin it all! XD

Nym.Katharina - Really? Wow!! Dangit, I wish I had awesome dreams like that! Now you NEED to tell me more!

Joshie - Haha, well, it's kind of like a fight. In a transformation match, they each transform into whatever animal or object they want throughout the battle and try to beat the opponent back into their original form. XD Think of the match between Merlin and Madam Mim in Disney's Sword and the Stone, and you'll know what I mean. XD

MegamanZDevil - Ahahaha, I know! I'm a good tricker! Look out for me on Halloween!! >w<
S-Seriously?! Wow, OK! 8D Then I'll send you a quick drawing of all the characters in Hotarugari! LOL, no way am I gonna make you wait until all of the characters are introduced in the comic! XD

Tablix - WOW! That's such a great idea! But man, it's too bad I already made all the members of Yumi's clan female. :( Having a priest and a girl kitsune sounds so cool! But dude, you have a totally awesome imagination! Never stop using it!! <333

Jazeki October 24th, 2010, 6:46 pm
Aww, glad you're okay.Do we get to see the transformation match?
godmoderncommander October 24th, 2010, 6:56 pm
I hope...right after they run away from the hole that holds the killer spider lady that is going to eat them.
ZivXanthus October 24th, 2010, 7:20 pm
Ahh, I love this so much!!! :D

And I've been checking my mail box for my shirt since September xD haha, i'm so excited for it <3

And and, I <3 U ... ^///^ have a great week!!


Aww, I'm not that awesome! I should be bowing down to you for delivering this comic to us! :)
torchthewolf October 24th, 2010, 9:02 pm
Ah yet another beautifully drawn comic.
Also Hotaru "Hopes" to beat the Tanuki in transformation? Lol also seems like he is much too prideful. Thats going to cost I bet!

Also I hate to impose... But may I advertise my comic here? (However its not a drawn comic I'm afraid. hope that's not a problem.) (If you are ok with it I'll edit my comment with the link. Or in a pm if you would rather have it sent there.)

When is the comic ever going to get to Yumi going," Hey,Hatoru, why did you put us in the flesh-hungry-spider-woman's lair anyway!!!! D=<" Doesn't seem like it'll happen, though. Yumi is so nice, and a new character got dragged in. By the way, not bashing or ranting, I love this comic! I wish it and White Noise would have a comic baby together! >.<

Wait a minute--Are they going to transform into rock, paper, or scissors? That would be epic. XD
MegamanZDevil October 25th, 2010, 3:08 am

ChiakiAida October 25th, 2010, 7:01 am

( *v* ) Because Tanuki seems so intersting, I would like to know more about him
alexisneo October 25th, 2010, 8:53 am

Sound Synthesis October 25th, 2010, 11:57 am
Oh goodie! Now Hotarugari and Yumi will have to work together and show everyone the power of teamwork and friendship! >w< [/sarcasm]

I smell a disaster cooking.
RainRose October 25th, 2010, 4:25 pm
This is about to get good :)
Nym.Katharina October 25th, 2010, 8:54 pm
I had a dream about this comic a few nights ago. It was weird. (Lets just say the Tanuki was a ninja- no kidding)
Joshie October 26th, 2010, 3:39 pm
I thought they were gonna fight... XD
A transforming match... I wonder how they determine whose better. O3o
MegamanZDevil October 26th, 2010, 6:03 pm
ohoh you're a good tricker like that. ;v;
just keep on making these characters so I can beat the amount I drew for 123 step LOL.(fdsfh this is probably asking too much but could you send me a pic of them so I can include them in one of the pics? *u* orrr must I wait till they are introduced to draw them?)
Tablix October 27th, 2010, 4:02 am
