- And this is one of the reasons I named this comic Hotarugari! (Hotarugari is Japanese for “firefly catching”) I bet you all thought it had to do with some girly fox kid.

Wow, that was the longest unannounced break I’ve ever taken from Hotarugari. I feel bad about it. D: I'll try to make it up to you guys!
Thanks again for all fans and your support! It really means a lot to me.
constant_boredom - Haha, honestly, in the beginning, the title really had nothing to do with anything, but as I developed the comic, I tied more of the title's meaning into Yumi's story, since she was the only main character for the longest time. But Hotaru has somehow become an equal part of this, and his name works with the title too, so how it relates is up to the reader in the end. ;)
And yeppers! That's her little bro!
AmoriiBlossom - Yeah! That's her bro! Ain't he cute?
I really like how the title can relate to either Hotaru or Yumi, but I wanted to let you guys know that originally, it was ALL about Yumi. XD
CharmedbyFire - That makes sense too! And it actually works better that way! :)
The_Hankerchief - Oh, I know! So many issues can arise out of no where! I had no idea webcomickers had it so rough until I became one, haha! And thank you very much! I feel much better now.
ChiakiAida - Wow, you have a good memory! And yeah, haha, it's not until the 3rd chapter of this comic that we learn why this comic is called what it is. And thank you very much as always, Chi~! <3
MegamanZDevil - Really? Thanks! I kind of wanted him to have a plainer design than the others since he only appears in this one scene, but I didn't want him too boring, either. I hope I found a good balance!
And thanks as always, man. ;u;
godmoderncommander - ...Because this story is corny like that, LOL. And I just love corny!
Migoto Keigai - Oh my! This should make you dislike the hebi even more knowing that they're pretty much the bad guys in this comic! XD
Haha, me too! Me too!
VibeCatcher - Don't worry! You can find the meanings to all the Japanese words used in this comic here: www.hotarugari.smackjeeves.com/japanese
pokesam - Thanks! >v< I really like drawing him. But you're right. You guys know manga too well!
nijineko - YAY~! I was wondering if anyone would notice. You must have very good eyes! :D I gave Makoto similar features to Hotaru to hopefully help readers understand why Yumi sees Hotaru like her little brother. (It actually pains Yumi at first at how much the two are alike, but it's eventually the reason she is able to accept and befriend Hotaru so quickly.) Although, haha, Makoto is definitely a bit more chipper and has a WAY better haircut. XD
