Thanks! ^ ^ We're a group. Two writers and one artist. Hopefully we settle in well enough.

Excellent, high quality art appealing theme so far. Very interested in seeing where this goes. Your team seems to creating a quality comic so far.

However, being non-print format by a western artist geared towards western audiences, I see no reason to make your readers read right to left. At all. It doesn't do anything to increase any sort of authenticity, and instead makes it rather annoying in my opinion.

Hopefully we can continue down that path.

We'd like to get it into print eventually, at the moment all we want to do is get it out there. We decided a while ago to make it read from left to right and we're already pretty far down the road as far as finished strips to turn back on that now.

co-writer here! glad to see comments already, and the reverse order thing was decided a ways back

I for one liked the idea I originally had where we irregularly pretended to be translating the story and pretending it's some underground hit in Japan. It's how I try to write it, as a love-hate letter to manga, doing things a really creative but cliche shonen writer would put into it

cuz you know... I'm strangely into playing Pretend like that

I respect that, actually. It's something I've previously though about doing myself, even though I decided I'd never actually follow through with it.

It's really cool that someone else actually has. :P

But that's a fine display of writer AND artistic skill in this comic, in that you could read it either way and have it make sense. :P
