According to the Legend of the Ransei region, if all 17 kingdoms of the region are united, the legendary Pokemon that formed the region would appear. Young Saku, along with her stubborn Axew, sets off on the road of conquest. However, the warlord Nobunaga is only one kingdom away from uniting the region. Can Saku conquer Ransei before he does?

I could put this all in a news post, but lets be honest, this way is probably more efficient and direct.
Anyway, I did forewarn I'd be going on hiatus, and as promised these are the details of that.
Bloom will not be updating for a couple of months. Hopefully this hiatus will not last any longer than that.
There are a couple main reasons for this:
Firstly, I have a couple of special projects I'm working on. They'll be revealed in due time, but right now there are some deadlines with them I'm trying to meet and I'm finding I really need to prioritize that right now.
Secondly, it's that time--I'm going to be moving to college! And before anyone asks, no, I'm not an art student. While art has always been and always will be my greatest passion, it's not something I ever envisioned going to school for. I'm actually planning to major in computer science. =P I hope to create video games in the future XD
And finally, I know that I have been inconsistent with the update schedule this past year, and I truly apologize for that. Depending on how my schedule looks at the end of this hiatus, I may or may not change the update schedule to something that I'll be able to adhere to more consistently.

As always, thank you so much for your patience and understanding. :) Bloom will return in a couple of months!
Happy Five Years of Bloom!
Time really flies. I wanted to do something more whimsical this year, and this sort of honors the part that Gracia and Mitsunari's side adventures have been playing in the plot. Sorry I know it's a large piece and you may have to do some scrolling/zooming out to get the whole thing, but I feel it was worth it. =P
It's really weird how time passes. I remember back when I started this comic, and how I was just learning how to use Photoshop and just straight up paint-bucketed all my pencil lines. XD It's really come a long way.
Thank you so much to all of you readers who have stuck with me. I know this past year I've been rather inconsistent, so thank you for your patience and support. Here's to even more years of Bloom shenanigans! :D

I thought this page would be a good stopping point before hiatus.

In the coming week, I will update an extra, and something with more details on this temporary hiatus I'll be taking.

Well a lot of things happened at once and totally distracted me from mentioning on here that I'd be travelling for a week. x_x I tried to put a comment up while I was out, but I had pretty spotty internet and evidently that comment didn't make it on here. Ah well.
I'm sort of back, but do know that Bloom will be taking a temporary hiatus in the near future. I'll put something up explaining in more detail when the time comes, but basically I have a few projects that are taking higher priority and a lot of time. Like I said, I'll explain everything in further detail soon. In the meantime, don't worry, I know I've been inconsistent but I will have a bit more material up on Bloom. Thanks for bearing with me guys >w<

Leave it to Motochika to set the mood. XD

I'm glad I wasn't the only one counting.

Of course Motochika was counting. You mean you weren't?

...*holds breath as everyone goes back through the last few pages and double checks my numbers*

Also I'm sorry for missing Saturday's update (again x_x). I had a lot of events scheduled that day but thought I'd have time to finish the page...wrong. Ha. x_x This time I'll at least warn you that there may not be a couple of updates next week since I'll be travelling. But otherwise, hopefully nothing else interferes with the update schedule too much. Thanks for your patience everyone!

Uhh I think Saku's words didn't quite process in Kanetsugu's head.

Kanetsugu also possesses the ability to sparkle.

@Switzerland: Yep, I took the look from the in-game appearance XD
I love how ponigiri is drawn as dango (it's drawn like that in game too, right?) as opposed to riceballs. Ponigiri makes me laugh in general- it's such a stupid pun.

@Switzerland: Yes! While I may not always be the best at consistently drawing things to scale, it is Saku's official height. =P

Man, this week has been unexpectedly eventful for me.
Kanetsugu's way of speaking is amusing and accurate to the game.

By the way, Saku is six feet tall?? Holy cow!

I apologize for missing yet another update on Saturday...I was having some personal issues. But things are better now for the most part, although today has been an unexpectedly busy day but I really didn't want to miss another update so I took some time out of my evening to finish this page.
Luckily, I'm finally done with school! So unless I am travelling or something unexpected happens, I anticipate regular updates throughout the summer. :)

For some reason, walls always pose a challenge to me. =P

Anyway, you may notice in addition that characters page, a few more new site pages have cropped up, in addition to a donate button! I have made a news post detailing all these new pages here: http://bloomconquest.smackjeeves.com/news-archive/posts/147023/new-site-pages/

@Switzerland: Thanks! Glad you think so. I do think Yoshimoto's was the most profound. XD
The characters page is very cool! I especially appreciate Yoshimoto's description.
