President Sugiyama doesn't like sensationalist nonsense. It's bad for business.

Sometimes it takes us like three years to make good on a little detail from earlier in the story....

The tones we used for Momiko's mother's dress on this page are by rayedwards. (1|2)

We're back!
Opening up chapter five with another flashback to Momiko's childhood, taking place sometime after the one from last chapter.

You know that thing where you put on eyeliner, and then one side is a little bigger than the other so you try to even it out, and then the side that you evened out is bigger than the other, and then... yeah, I don't wear makeup much either, I haven't got the fine motor control for it. :P

Updates will resume on May 3rd. In the meantime, if anyone has questions or comments, I can be contacted here (via comment or private message) and on my art blog.

Thanks for reading, and see you in May!

End of chapter four.
Omake next week, then a two-month break before Chapter Five begins on May 3rd. In the meantime I'll probably post some stuff on my art blog.

I'm pretty excited for some things coming up in the next chapter - it'll finally be time to show off some of the earliest concepts Key and I came up with when we were planning Maria way back in, um, either 2011 or 2012, I forget which. There're probably dates on some of that old art, I'll figure it out.

Anyway, looking forward to getting to show that to you all. Thanks for reading!

This girl's name is Isono Hayama, or possibly Hayama Isono, I'm not actually 100% sure which is the family name. (Key should know.) Fun fact: she's usually in judo with Momiko when Chika is leaving school, but there's no judo today!
Merry (second day of) Christmas!
There will be no new page this week - the holidays were very hectic this year and Key and I are taking a little break.

Hope you all had a great Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope y'all get to eat a lot of turkey and other Thanksgiving food (my family's must-haves are gravy, dressing, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato souffle, and cranberry sauce).

Edit: Managed to leave out an entire speech bubble in panel three. It's fixed now!

Uehara, bringing you important character backstory since uh ... has he done this before? I can't remember.

I should probably re-read the comic.

Who watches the news anyway? Please chill out, Uehara.

New version of page uploaded!
Why is there a new version, you ask? Well....

I lost like six hours of sleep last week through a combination of poor life choices and unavoidable situations, and as a result ... I'm just going to list all the things I messed up on this page:

Panel two: Drew Chika in her Maria uniform instead of her school uniform (didn't notice until I sent it off to Key to get toned and she pointed it out).

Panel four: Forgot to draw Uehara's eyebrows and the white stripes on Chika's collar (didn't notice until after I'd posted the page. Actually only noticed the stripes today).

Panel five: Forgot to draw the President's seatbelt.

And the kicker (this was what I was talking about, @Pantherbrine: forgot to draw the uniform backpack/straps in every. single. panel. in which it should have appeared (panels two, four, six, and seven) and didn't notice until I was uploading the page after 10 on Tuesday night.

In conclusion, missing sleep for Elaienar = missing elements on the pages I draw.

@Pantherbrine: You're close!

(I will reveal all when I put up the fixed page.)

@Elaienar: What's missing...? Huh... The heart rod thingy, maybe?

Who can figure out what's missing on this page? (I'll fix it later, sometime when it's not late at night and I have to be at work at 6.20 the next morning.)

Technically Rina is also Chika's neighbour, but Rina doesn't spend much time at home. (Too busy fighting robot monsters and doing promotional stuff for Magi Co.)

You can see the design sketches I did for the three other Marias in panel two on my art blog!

Edit: Oops, I forgot to upload the sketches. Fixed now!

That awkward moment when you meet someone you haven't seen since one of you concussed the other.
