Sakura Day

by IVA_12
On her way home after two childhood friends' reunion, Meija met with an almost 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 is swiftly "poofs"her away! Next thing that happens is she finds herself in a familiar looking "world", in a strange lonely house with weird 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 (aka. Blaine's Summer House) and with the rest of her new friends along the way.

Genre: Fantasy with surrealism, shoujo-style, adventure, comedy, romance.

This comic is read in the "manga way": "RIGHT TO LEFT"

UPDATES ON WEEKENDS = Saturday & Tuesdays/Wednesdays


* * * *
Author's note: This webcomic is my first and is completely experimental. I've been planning it since 2010 and the timeline of the comic starts in 2010. The style and art is changes depending on what I pick-up along the way because i like to apply new tricks. To note, the updates can possibly be delayed at times. I hope you can bear with me.

Enjoy~

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!
ANOTHER HIATUS IT SEEMS!
Hey y'all!
As you've read above Sakura Day will once again be under hiatus and might go one for 1 or 2 months.
(Wow this chapter is taking a year to finish, I'd surprise myself if I can finish it before I reach my 30s. **sarcastic scoff**)

I've been working and it has sucked all my vital energies, but I am working on managing my work time and comic-making time (please don't mention my day offs, they're cramped too with other personal agendas).

Also, more importantly, my the art software is having a major problem and I can't use it normally. I am fixing it presently.

So until then folks!
Filler :: Art & Dorothy, the other couple
Hey! It's the other team, Art+Dorothy! Just a filler for y'all. Aren't they a fast pair, that's cuz they're already so comfortable with each other they have no more problems that hinder their progress, at least nothing that major. (Lina+TJ are civil and cute, but they're both too bashful of one another; then there's Josef+Meija, they're still working on it...)

They're both in their mid-twenties. Been patrons of the Benoite Massingale Club for 5 years. Dorothy and Art are childhood sweethearts and childhood friends. They're part of a project I've been meaning to construct 2 years ago. That's all I can share for now because some details aren't fleshed out properly and some are spoiler-material.

You can ask me any trivial question about these two!
UPDATE! ***\(>w<)/***
Hey y'all! Been over a month since I've updated, hehe. It's kinda funny that the comic page title is ironic to my excuse and present conditions of my comic update schedule.

You see, I've been busy with work lately (9-6, m-f) and I can only have the weekends to rejuvenate and do my hobbies. It's kinda limiting and I'm afraid my update schedule might drag (longer than today), since I'm planning on taking grad school. I just really hope I can finish chapter 13 within the following months!

For now, I've finished this page thinking about y'all! Hope you all like it.
(I'm aware, the story is dragging but it's meant to be detailed and rung out in some scenes to obtain an effect.) I'll be so happy if I can finish this chapter. I own the fault that I didn't prepare this chapter pre-production prudently , but I'm learning the ropes.

Please bear with me!

Stay young, folks!
Happy New Year Folks!
Guess what the colour of 2018 is~

Still alive, I am. I. Am. So. Sorry. Again, I'm sorry I couldn't upload new pages, the internet at home was down for three days and my laptop's battery is getting funny. Hey even this little greeting of mine is 2 days late, haha. (**harshly whisper oneself**get your shit together!)

** Oh, if you're wondering why this gif is grainy, well that's what happens when an image with tons of colours & gradients is converted into a gif in photoshop (I don't hate photoshop though, just is); this is the highest dither(quality) with the lowest size. **

Anyways!Hooray it's 2018 and you survived everything from 2017! Keep on going, mate! I'll be posting next week, I just pray my laptop won't die on me soon.

See you all soon!
Stay Young!
Late Update!
But seriously guys the pedalo/paddle boat can be challenging at first! We took a ride in one shaped like a swan and it didn't even have a steer, mind you. Yeah, we spent our time trying to change course, stuck in one direction, backed up in the pond's corner bushes; by the time we finally did unstuck ourselves, our time was up. *Sigh* Those were fun times.

Hey y'all! Sorry it's late but hey! here's a page if you will. (I'll try to catch up now!)
Hey! Let me hear your experience with the same wretched-contraption-of-a-boat/pedalo/paddle boat!
Enjoy the rest of the week!
Late Saturday Update!
Sorry y'all for updating only this weekend; we just moved into the city and we had some tight days (ie. no access to the net and space to finish the page)--same song, same verse.
But ANYWAY! Here's A page! I don't think I can promise anything for now, but I'll post when I can. I'll try to pick the pace up in this chapter (3 years huh? wow).

Wish me luck anyhow.
SATURDAY UPDATE!
I just want to notify y'all that Sakura Day update schedule shall be changed to every Saturday and Tuesday/Wednesday.

So there won't be an update tomorrow. Expect Tuesday or Wednesday (between those days, I'm still managing).

Enjoy the weekend folks!

SUNDAY UPDATE!
Here's the promised update from yesterday!

If there are any comments or constructive criticisms, please feel free to speak out and I shall reply if deemed prudent.

'Til Next Weekend, folks!
NEW UPDATE!OMGFJKSHKSDFHIYIU!
Hey'all! How's it been? I miss doing this, and I'm so glad I can update now. I'll try to maintain it once and for all. I like sharing my comics, and if there's any constructive criticism, then I can handle 'em. (share me your thoughts)


There's another page update tomorrow Sunday too, now don't you miss it!
Have a great weekend folks!
A Come Back! the kid is back...
Hey guys it's been a really long while. (6 months right? Wow.)

Anyways I'm glad to be able to make comics again after my previous ordeal! Whew! (but the hiatus for me was worth it after all those plans done--not that I'm saying i like hiatuses).
Just like what I posted in my tumblr and in my devart, <h4> I shall be resuming comic posting by the end of November.</h4> By that I mean: this upcoming saturday, Nov. 25, 2017. Yes, I'll be updating on Saturday AND Sunday. So watch out, folks.

Perhaps the colour scheme and descriptions point as to who that is, if you can still remember the previous pages from this. And I bet you may have an inkling as to whose hand the upper forearm belongs to.

I have to confess though, it'll be long before that scene catches on, but I assure you that it is within this chapter(13). For now the road is more focused on Meija and Josef's journey through Astra's relay race (more like obstacle race, though). Be sure to stick around when the hidden monster-thingy appears! I promise action. (I'll have to make comics twice the time now to catch up on the many more pages to come; because of some potential obstacles in the future, I want to give y'all a heads up that the updating schedule might just move to the weekdays, and if it does, I'll make sure to post twice on the weekdays. Phew!) So keep an eye out y'all!

Visit me in Tumblr at iva-verse-blog.tumblr.com (I swear that'll be the last time the blog name changes) and my DevArt at minightrose12.deviantart.com (this though may change, I'm not a core member so I can't change my name and I'll probably make a new account for devart though. I'll notify when it comes to that.) I post Sakura Day art there that I do not post here, the comics, and other things as well, so if you're interested please check them out!

Textures and the butterfly picture are not mine, but some things I found in google.


Have a great week, folks!
