Sakura Day

Sakura Day

by IVA_12
On her way home after their friends reunion, Meija met with a fatal accident. The next thing she sees is a person who claims to be her guardian angel, angel Michael. He informs her frustratingly vague things and swiftly "poofs"her away. She eventually finds herself in a familiar looking world, in a strange lonely house with eccentric tenants, who have fortunately taken her in and, conveniently for them, have plans in store for Meija.

Follow Meija in her adventures with the people from LALA Dormitory and with the rest of new friends along the way.

Updates are indefinite. My day-offs are my only opportunity to work (╥ω╥) ; I'm currently managing my time though, so please bear with me when the comic seems to be under hiatus. I apologise in advance. (nov.11.2018)

Hey'all! Been long, eh?

Would you look at that, a month for just this one page...I was really having trouble in drawing these pine trees. I've never seen one in real life, only from afar and in pictures & media. So I just made it stylistic as much as I can without making it look unconvincing. Oh, and I've been trying to experiment with comic dimension lengths; I was inspired by s.Korean webtoons really, except I didn't adapt the "1 episode per 10,000px length page". So, expect some long pages in the future updates!


Do know in my heart that I feel bad about not being able to finish the comic pages I could've finished many months earlier and then uploading them for this chapter's resolution. I'm still doing the best I can though. My own frustration on this matter is almost comparable to Meija's in this one, if not more than; unlike Meija, I scream internally. Nowadays, there're just some things I'm trying to manage now. It's not easy having a job and keeping your day's energy and time to do for comic making. Although I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I just need to move forward in this journey.

Stay young folks!

Look at Josef, what a gentleman picking up a lady's shoe and cleaning off the dirt with his hanky. How southern. Hoho.
So you see, Clara doesn't really suffer the closed-eyes-smiley-face syndrome. I just like drawing her with closed eyes and it's way easier to illustrate. She has absolutely lovely green golden eyes (´♡‿♡`)

Random update, but hey I'm still updating nonetheless. Can you imagine I can only finish a whole page within 4 days. I'm obsessive that way, and I love details. So my future apologies for all the late updates I post. I'm doing my best and I hope you all can bear with me.

An Update!

Just to add again: the Italian aria is from the Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Antonio Puccini; the comic title is the aria title itself, fyi. If it's not obvious enough, Clara is part Italian.

I fixed the song "bubble"(the object you put the text in, idk what it's technically called) because the previous song "bubble" is muddy and inconsistent, and you couldn't read the text -- so yeah fixed the cursive too, Occam's razor. Phew!

If you think about it though, why isn't there an Italian D!sney princess? But upon my research (ie. net surfing), it seems sleeping beauty might be an Italian contender--although among the d!sney princesses Aurora has the vaguest nationality placement; you just know she's from this European country with lots of trees, and whose language has Latin roots.

Have a nice week folks!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS 2018
Happy Holidays y'all! This one's from me and the whole cast of Sakura Day! Although we only have these two to greet. Hmm...I kinda miss drawing A.Michael, that each time I draw him he looks different from the one before hmm... Just to note, he'll be appearing in the later parts of the chapter. For now he's only watching from afar, the creep. hehe. Ain't gonna need a guess what that mistletoe's for, the creep just might get get a big one on his kisser. No, I'm kidding, I love this affectionate goof ball!

Have a great day and make the rest of the year a blast!
Time's zooming past me so fast I feel like by the time I've finished with chapter 13, my hair would've turned grey and I would have grandnieces and grandnephews of my own. *sobs*

Make the rest of the year last everyone!
Stay young folks!

I like this word. I like places that are abandoned somehow.

Kenopsia (n.) the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet—a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds—an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs. --- The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

The scrawled script of the singing voice is Tutti i fior? from Puccini's Madame Butterfly. With that, I bet you all know who the next sphinx is.

Anyways, hey another update and Happy Holidays to y'all!
Have a great one this year!

Hey'all!

An update!

I gotta apologise for the confusing perspective in this page, but I'm just gonna put on record some of it are intentional.

Just some FYI...The plaque reads "Natura abhorret a vacuo" which translates to "Nature abhors a vacuum".
The "totem pole" is supposed to stand 7-9-ish metres high, or at least visually as tall as a standard flagpole. Yeah, Meija's right on that, it does not look like your standard totem pole. More like a statue. But the souvenir/clue does look like a totem pole though (◕‿◕)☆


Additional FYI...troops & people who use the site are the typical girl and/or boy scouts; the process goes through a reservation of a party of patrons--be it a group of patron parents for their kids or a said party of patron parents representing a whole group of their children's peers, with the patron parents and scout master as guardian-- willing to use the site. Camping season is usually utilised in between summer and autumn, so it's apparent that the scouts aren't there yet. The patrons don't go to that place alone though even with their attendant, too far and can get uninvitingly damp; although nature buffs are a frequent visitors, they're only a handful though. This part of the BM vicinity separated by the lake is the almost as wide as the area of land in the main grounds, and its only utilisation is for camping.

Gosh it's December already and woooh is my update consistency...disappointing (눈_눈)
I'll be doing my best to update!

Stay young folks!

I adore that poem. So rhythmic and just fun to read out loud.

Hey'all! How's it been? (^ w 0 )/ Just managing here...is a page!

Please pardon my insufficient knowledge of pine trees, but I'm learning; the internet is quite helpful. I mean, on the initial pages I was just too lazy to draw pine trees as they are (or as close as they appear). Well, it's a challenge I'm interested to tackle! Hoho~

Stay young folks!
! U P D A T E !
Hey'all! Still alive, just so busy! I swear...

TO NOTE:
I know, it's a lake. An artificial lake, at that!
If it's not obvious enough, the BM club is almost half-deserted, due to the previous mishaps.

Stay young, folks!

Get ready for so much blue! ( 0 w ^ )/*

Stay young folks!
AN UPDATE!

A head's up: the next page'll be late too.
I'll post when I can (that i'm sure).

Stay young folks!

~~~

edit (jan.16,2019) | just realised the spelling should be "skedaddle" with an "e"not an "i". Will edit the comic page soon!
Saturday Update!
Me when I realise I have work tomorrow at bloody 6 AM sharp: [Josef's face at the 6th panel]

Hey'all! Head's up on the next page which might be a bit late, if not next Tuesday then mehbeh Wednesday...Definitely next week.

Stay young, folks!
@ashtree-house: hey thanks! (^ w ^)/
Welcome back! Another beautiful page!!
Flashback~Verse pt.iii (verses 10, 11, 8)
Hey'all! Another 1pg update for you.
Have this flashback!
It's about the 2nd disappearance that happened 10 yrs. ago in the BM club. Lawyers and the media are straining.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Disclaimer:
The poem is Song Of Nature by Ralph Waldo Emmerson, the verses above are as follows: 10, 11, 08

(poem transcript)
x. But he, the man-child glorious,--
Where tarries he the while?
The rainbow shines his harbinger,
The sunset gleams his smile.

xi. My boreal lights leap upward,
Forthright my planets roll,
And still the man-child is not born,
The summit of the whole.

viii. What time the gods kept carnival,
Tricked out in star and flower,
And in cramp elf and saurian forms
They swathed their too much power.

All credit for the verses goes to R.W. Emmerson.
Another Update!
Woooh! Another update!

Hey'all! It seems I'm planning on 1 page per update, but this can be changed if my will and day-offs go as planned, hehe.

Well anyways, enjoy the page!
Expect the poem-flashback next update too!

Stay young folks!
HEY WE'RE UPDATING AGAIN!
HEY WE'RE UPDATING AGAIN!

Hey y'all! I've found the time and finished this. I hope I can be consistent this time. I mean this chapter has encompassed 2 years and it still hasn't concluded yet! And you can bet the pages shall go over 100!

Honestly guys, I really want to finish this chapter so that I can showcase the other meaty parts of the whole series; I mean, a dozen or so characters haven't been introduced yet. That's why I'm already cutting out some floppy edges and going straight to the main bits. Hoooooooh..... but not to worry (me), by the end of the 4th checkpoint that'll be the end of the 1st part!

So please do bear with me. \( ='w'= )/
And do expect another update by next week, not sure if on Wed or Sat. Hmm. Stay tuned!

Stay young folks!
Hey @BananaUhl! so glad you noticed that haha, haaaa oh the early days. ~(=w=*)~
That is one HUGE snot bubble
Love how you put in "First I was afraid... I was petrified"
:: filler ::
Okay, so there's 1 good news: my art software is fine now. The hiatus holds still, sorry.

I'm still working (literally) and on things so that I can ease my "comic-making time".

Until then!
