Holy guacamole! An update!

Thought I’d have more time for drawing during the summer, but I seem to be just as busy, if not more, now. T__T But darnit, I’ll still give it my all! This chapter needs to get done!

So thank you, everyone, for sticking with me and this comic! Thanks to all the new fans! And a super, special thanks to a recent donator who made a wonderful contribution to Hotarugari! Every single cent donated helps to create time to work on Hotarugari, since otherwise, I’m spending that time working various part-time jobs to pay for my pets' prescription medications or my license renewal fee or other total bummers. But heck, know that I’ll never, EVER beg for donations from you guys! Money is crazy tight right now for everyone, for sure, so don’t sweat it. That’s why for those that donate, it feels like you should get something awesome in return. What should it be? A monthly Hotarugari wallpaper? Hotarugari extras and behind the scenes stuff? A personal email from me thanking my heart out?! OK, that last one is kind of lame, but I can’t receive a donation without giving something back, (My muma taught be better than that!) so I’ll work out something special to release next month for the donators of Hotarugari.

Oh, and fun tidbit; I wanted to knock Hotaru off in this scene, but my sister said no, so kangaroo was my second option. :D

- Thank you! I try my best!

theinevitablesmiley - Ha ha, it is! It's such a fun word to say. And ever since I saw Warriors of Virtue back in '97, kangaroos have become so much cooler.
Aww, thanks! But I hate to keep you guys waiting too long! Especially at exciting parts like this. :D

*Suki* - Thanks, Lily! >u< Glad you're enjoying it!

SilentDusk - Thanks, man! It means so much to me to hear that.

zetina - Me too. Bumping him off would have been nice, though. XD

jonasfx - Welcome, welcome! ^v^ I hope you enjoy this comic!

sala218 - Thank you! :D

pokesam - Awww, Kitty! You make me blush! Thank you so much! That is the sweetest compliment anyone could ever give me.

animefan23 - For now, at least! Mwahaha...

contradiction123 - Yeah, but she's definitely not going to admit that. XD

FireBorg - LOL! The odds would be evened!

SolaraHedgie - Thanks, Solara! You're always so kind!
And super observant! Thanks for spotting all that. Internet Explorer seems to load this page completely differently than Firefox, so I'll have to fix that banner!
And those links! Gracious, why are such awesome comics leaving SmackJeeves?! That's so sad. T__T

athdlg - Um... okay? <:D

MegamanZDevil - Kangaroo Hotaru is definitely my favorite of his tranformations so far. But wow, drawing him as a kangaroo was tough. Their feet are so wacky! And yeah, most likely she will later on. XD Chapter 4 has some funny ones.

Harrie5 - Thank you, Harriet! <333 My lines and shading definitely weren't like this when I started this comic, (Compare the first few pages to this one and whoa, what a difference!) so all it takes is time and practice. :D
Oh yeah, I've been following his work on his site and on DA too. It's just, I'm not sure why he left and removed Paranatural from SJ. So many other artists have done the same with their comics, and that's such a drag. But you'll never have to worry about that with Hotarugari. You can find it on other sites like MangaBullet and DeviantArt, but Hotarugari will always be here on SmackJeeves!

DerpBox - LOL, I know. XD I'm sure that was just my exhaustion-from-drawing talking, but it's become a running joke between my siblings and I that I always want to kill my main characters.

Addict - Only if it's something specific that I've never drawn before. That's when I'll get as much photo reference as I can to study and analyze! Otherwise, I usually go without and have fun.

please take your time, you do such good work

Kangaroo is such a silly and random word, but a good choice of animal for kicking some priestess butt. :)

This is a nice page. And don't worry about taking a while to get pages done, we'll wait! It's always a treat to see you update :)

LOL how funny I commented yesterday and you update today! Sal, as always your being your genius self, Love the comic, yesterday i took the liberty of reading up what i had missed. I love the comic as always, Faving this comic in chapter 1 comic 3 was the greatest thing i did. Haha I've been a fan for the whole two years Sal, and not once have i thought it to be dull.
zetina June 13th, 2012, 5:52 am
I'm glad you listened to your sister! This is more fun :>
jonasfx June 13th, 2012, 6:08 am

sala218 June 13th, 2012, 7:26 am
awesome page as always!

He turned... Into a kangaroo...
Officially one of the best comics I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.
animefan23 June 13th, 2012, 10:38 am
Yay, he's saved!!! TTUTT

Awww, is she crying in the first panel?

FireBorg June 13th, 2012, 3:52 pm
Now give him some boxing gloves and he's more than ready to take on Miyu by himself. =D

Take as much time as you want! You make up for it with these beautiful pages ;A;

Also, this is minor, but your top banner on the site is a few pixels off of the body size. I would recommend making the body shorter by 1 or 2 pixels.

Edit: Oh, and I just checked out the links page. Paranatural moved sites, so I would recommend changing the link since it leads to a random comic with nothing on it.

kangaroo hotaru is the best omg. makes me wonder if yumi is going to force him into any other transformations?
Harrie5 June 15th, 2012, 7:53 am
Ahhh Sal, this page is beautiful <33
Your shading linework is freaking flawless how do you do it man

Also, Paranatural moved because Zack wanted to host it on his own site, and also post other stories there too.
It can be found on now C:
DerpBox June 15th, 2012, 4:56 pm
Thank gog you listened to your sister ;A;
I woulda cried if Hotaru died ;_;
Addict June 16th, 2012, 10:08 pm
Do you typically use a lot of photo reference?
HaKu10 June 19th, 2012, 12:34 am
Whew, I finally caught up~
Looking good, Sal-chan, very nice! I'm so happy that Yumi came, just in the nick of time to save Hotaru! Makes me wanna cry! TvT
Don't tire yourself out too much from workin, take a break every now and then, k? Take care~ :)
And I hope to hear from ya, soon! :D
