BORSTAL

by Imi
In the frozen Siberian wastelands, Hell is up and running. Its name is Borstal, and it is where Hayashi Junichi has been condemned. A place for the young and the depraved, it is where criminals too young to be properly dealt with are kept, so that they do not become a plague upon society. Or at least, that's what it is on the surface. There is a darker heart to Borstal, though, one which Junichi will become intimately familiar. Because he is not a normal street punk. When he finally did what he'd thought about so often, killed rival gang members, it was not by his own hand, not really. It was Yue, an unwelcome guest in his mind, that manipulated him into dealing those fatal blows. And if neither of them are careful, the staff at Borstal will soon become very interested in them both...

adorable stalker girl!

...she's so dead.
Awwww, he thinks it's sleep deprivation! It's cute how he thinks he'll be in the clear.
YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHAHAHAAAAAAA!!! UPDATE! WOO! *dances*

It's cool, it's cool. School's more important than this comic, as much as we dread that fact.hurr @_@

I love your DP so so much, you don't even know <3_<3
*Everytime* I see it, it makes me laugh really hard. x]

I'm so jealous >.<
You can draw dudes with 5 o'clock shadows and make them look sexy. Damn you sexy man with your fuzzy face and and happy trail!x3 Why must you be so irrestistable?!
Look at this. My clothes are off, lying in a pile, and I don't even know when it happened!
i like the random blondeness of his hair as well as the abject tiredness in his face. Awesome.

@frostwings: Refer back to a previous author comment on the legend behind the Onryo female ghosts for why. The characters from the Ring, the Grudge and Borstal are based on the stereotypical image used in Kabuki plays.
@S-A: It's okaaaay~ And aaw, thank you, I was really bothered by it so that's good to know!
@Julius: Yay, someone's been concentrating and doesn't think I'm copying~ <3

And thank you very much, especially on the comment on layout. I struggled so much with it when I first started making comics so to know it looks good now means a lot.
@Yoowl: Thaaanks, though I'm sure you didn't mean to wait this long ._.
@everlasting-insanity: She reaaally is, don't worry! (Not in the bathroom again, though...for a while)
@Gracifer: Bahaha, well, she is a TOTAL catch. And thanks for that, I still feel bad about taking so long, but what can you do D:
@Bubblesita: Thank you so much! <333 No chance of it reaching a lot of pages any time soon I don't think >_>
@Ochahane: Hurr hurr, thanks~

Oh my gooood I suck so much.

I came back from Singapore all eager to finish this page, and then...lost...the ability to colour anything at all. It still doesn't look great, but after scrapping over and over again I just want to post. I'm sorry D:

I can't promise any faster updates with uni starting again, b-but this isn't forgotten, and all your comments just keep me going <3

i second the comment about his glasses looking weird, but i like his face. The different toned blue eyes are a cool extra, too.

DUDE! This comic looks freaking amazing. I'm so glad I caught it before there were like...a bagillion pages to be caught up on. lol.

Imi, I love your DP. It makes me giggle everytime my eyes fall across it.

Oh My
...I think I am in love. With the creeper girl, of course. Snrrk.

Lovely work! And no worries about the delays. We all have our busy schedules outside of SmackJeeves, as we all know. >8D
Oh yay! I hope she's in this for a lot longer, I just adore those annoying ghosts that stalk you in the bathroom XD

Orh, come on! She's bleeding all over the floor . >_>

I'd rather wait a bit longer and then see the pages in color, 'cuz you're doing a really great job on that >w<;
awww, i'm sorry, but it was truuue.....

OMG SHE'S HAUNTING HIM! UWAH..... D: That second panel position is way awesome. yes. yay for perspective!

In her creepy-ass dead form she kind of looks like the girl from 'The Ring'...cept considerably more bloody.
Oh that's sad. Poor girl, poor him.

@Gracifer: Sorry for the huge delays Dx But I'm glad you like the colouring, thank you!
@S-A: After you said that I couldn't unsee it ): I wish I noticed these things before posting a picture.
@Yoowl: Thank you~! XD Yeah, sorry about that.
@Kaiya: Thank you! I hope he still seems that way when he's properly introduced, haha.
@MillieQOF: Aaw, well thank you very much!

And I don't know yet, it takes me ages to do something in colour, so I guess I'll ask when it comes closer to the start of the first chapter whether or not people want colour+long wait for updates, or faster updates without colour. ): I really enjoy colouring, but if people want speed I'll have to stick with black and white instead.

Graaaarg delay.

Same reason as I said on Fallen. I came off these pills a few days ago that had been controlling hormones, so they came rushing back. Was quite unwell and lethargic for a couple of days, so I didn't really have the energy to sit down and finish a page. Wish I could have done this better, I messed up on so many things, but we live and learn from our mistakes!

And at least the story is moving again.
Poor girly, I think she needs a hug... and mabie a bandaid.
