Its Yumi and Hotaru jammin! Yumi plays the shamisen and Hotaru plays a taiko drum. Ha ha, I dont know how Yumi is holding that guitar up. And Hotarus headband . ahahahahaa! XD
But seriously, you guys thank you so much~!!! QuQ Oh my gosh, I never dreamed this comic would have this many fans! I post the 500+ fans thank you picture and its almost 600 now!! You guys are so great!! And your support continues to motivate me even more to make this comic.
So finally! Heres the special surprise I promised! *drum roll*
Hotarugari will have its own original soundtrack!!! Thats right! Ill be composing most of the tracks myself and will be posting them on the new
. Keep in mind Ive never dealt with music before. And these are just tracks, meaning no vocals or anything. So dont expect much, please! >_<;
Ill be starting with the theme for Hotarugari that I made last year, way before I had even decided this would be a comic. Since then Ive gotten some new and better music programs and improved my sense of timing a bit, so I might redo this track later, but for now, there it is!
I had promised my aunt once I reached 500+ fans that Id take her to eat lunch at her favorite restaurant. I did and we had a great time. She wants to thank you guys too! So... thank you! >w<
Eh? You're going to do something for me?! You're so sweet!! ;//u//; But you've done so much for me already! *hugz* My heart is already going "ya ya" because you're so wonderful! >w< And thank you!!
- Thank you! Thank you! I had fun with their outfits! A little too much, maybe. XD
And yay! So happy you liked the music I made! I made it last year, so that track is really old. ^^; Oh, and I used a program called Guitar Pro 5 to make it. It was so long ago, though, I'm sure they have a better version out now.
- I used Guitar Pro 5 to make that track, but recently I got some new music making programs that seem to work better. Oh yeah, I was originally going to use the the first chapter's cover for the track, but I decided to draw Hotaru this time. :3 A volume cover? Hmm, maybe. Ha ha, and thanks! I like drawing animals. >w<
- Yup, yup! I'll be composing all the tracks for Hotarugari myself. They won't have any vocals though. I'm a horrible singer. >_<;
And thanks! Double thanks! I'm so glad you're enjoying Hotarugari! Especially Tanuki-kun. (And you're right! It's a guy!) I'll try to keep the updates coming!
- Like you said, I've never heard of anybody making music for a comic before, so I'm so overjoyed people like the idea!! ;//v//; And thanks! Yeah, my aunt reads it. It's kind of embarrassing for me. XD And yeah, ha ha, I've already made another promise to her for when this comic reaches 1000+fans. >u<b
Aww, thanks! But well, I forgot to draw the shoulder strap for Yumi's shamisen, so it's floating in mid-air while she's playing it, LOL. But hey! This comic is magical! Anything can happen! >3<
Yes, I drew the designs on their clothes too! I think it would have been easier if I had just used a premade pattern, but I never choose the easy way out! XD
- Thank you! Thank you dearly! You're so kind! Your comment makes me so happy. ;w; I'll have more tracks up soon and I hope you'll enjoy them too. <3
- Thanks! I still can't believe this comic has so many fans. *A* I started this comic for myself but now I'm going to try my best for you guys!!
Yay! I'm so happy you like the first track! ;u; That one is my least favorite so far, (I think because it's so old. >_<;) so it should only get better from here!
- Thank youuuu~!! ;//w//;
- Aww, you're so nice! Thanks a ton!! ^v^ And yes, just for you, I'm going to try to update at least twice next week! Maybe even three times, who knows! (LOL, sorry, I know that's not saying much. XD) But yeah, I want to try to update more often!
And thanks for voting! I really don't expect to win, (I didn't even know what the SJ Awards was until this morning! LOL) but it's so nice to see it nominated!
- Thanks! Really! You don't know how much that means to me! ;u; I've never thought of entering the manga business, since I usually just draw comics for fun, but wow, thank you! That's one of the nicest comments I've ever received!!! TuT
- Ha ha, and they go down too! I see a lot of people faving and unfaving this comic, but I still managed to get to 600! Yay!
Gah, you're gonna make me blush! Thanks so much!
Oh I know! It's time to get back to the comic! Although I'll try to get the next track up soon too. ;)
Th-thank you! that means even more coming from an awesome artist like yourself! ;//u//;
- You're so nice! Thank you! I'll keep trying my best! ;D
- Thank you~! ;u;
- Oh thank you! I was really worried about how the soundtrack would go over with you guys since it's really not that good. >_<; But I'm so glad you like it! More tracks are on their way! ;3
And ha ha, don't worry! That made sense! Understood! >:3
Oh gosh, thank you~!! TuT I get such a wonderful feeling knowing that people enjoy my work, so thank you so much for saying that.
- Thanks! Thanks so much! <3 Your comments always lift me up. And an anime would be awesome, wouldn't it? 83 I plan to animate some of Hotarugari someday. And super, duper thanks for putting this as your wallpaper. That just made my day~! QuQ

And this picture is very nice! Nice, traditional Japanese looking (not that I'd know)~ I like their outfits and the design on them =w=
And that's so awesome! You're making music to go along with this awesome comic of yours! Hold on! Let me go listen to it >:D
It was really cool!! X3 The opening was nice, and how you progressed with it, like, when it got to the climax ? I don't know how to explain it! ... But, it's really cool you can make something like that. I can't make a song using various instruments...
What did you use, though, making it?
July 10th, 2010, 3:05 am
Nanno is very right! what did you used?or you maked the song traditionaly?tell us tell us~ >W<!Sal, the image that's at the music remember me the chapter one cover!So cool! Ah, now I remember something else.It still don't have the volume cover!(Ow O)Can I ask, will you make one?I noticed one more thing. You are very good at drawing animals~tehe~*nods* Hm hm.

so many exclamation points lol
A soundtrack? Cooly cool! That's awesome! Did you compose the songs yourself? Like did you sing them? So many questions you must answer! 8D Can't wait for them to show up!
This page is great and congrats! This story's so awesome and cute! I love Tanuki-kun and everyone else! (I'll assume its a guy for know :P) Keep up the great work! :D
July 10th, 2010, 6:47 am
wow, sal. I've never heard of anybody doing that for a comic. it's a super splendid idea. I know I can't wait to hear the music for it. ;//u//;
wowowww~ does your aunt read this? or just know of it? it's nice to hear you two had a great time. wonder if you'll make another promis like that when you reach 1000. n' I know you'll reach it >u</
hkldzgkich btw I love the picture. *o* what is this /// how do you draw those instruments so good? you even managed to make the strings on the shamisen totally straight. I love the details in Yumi's flower. ps did you draw the designs on their clothes or use a tone bc they are fabulous. ///////
July 10th, 2010, 9:36 am

Congrats! You deserve it. I may have been a contributor to your 500+ fans, me being a newer fan of Hotarugari. I'm surprised you're not in the manga business; your artistic and story-writing skills are far superior to many on SmackJeeves :3
July 10th, 2010, 6:50 pm
Well, Im not surprised you have 500+, no, now it's 600 Im sure, it's just such a great comic, it was bound to happen, and Im sure you will get even more in the future. Those numbers just rise every time I see them, haha.
You wonderful person, you certainly deserve all these fans and more.
and I still can't wait to see what you come up with music wise (and comic wise, I hope yumi isn't dead by now).
July 11th, 2010, 8:23 am

You sure as hell deserve those fans :D Your artwork is great (I just love the expressions :3) and your comic pages are always a very high standard :)
Keep up the good work! :D
July 11th, 2010, 5:13 pm
you always draw the cutest pictures for these
August 1st, 2010, 1:02 pm
hun, your amazing, truly :D
You should turn Hotarugari into an anime, it'd be great mixed in with your soundtrack. And no worries about copyright 8D
Love the page, im making it my wallpaper <3
