Mmmm, it's weird. Calling someone firefly doesn't seem like an insulting name.

Still working away, but drawing magical fox furniture is a lot of fun.

Oops. He needs to learn not to insult the people that just helped him. ...Or that own him!

Yay, another page! And someone is about to get sat on...

Thanks goes out to all the fans of Hotarugari, but especially to those who've become patrons on Hoarugariā€™s Patreon---your pledges are really helping me to keep comic pages coming! And to show my thanks, patrons now get to see the newest page of Hotarugari an entire week before it goes public. Thanks again, everybody, it means the world to me!

He also gets his jacket too! Their clothes and shoes are in that closet next to Hotaru, but since it's not shown in the comic, it could be magic. ;)
Waaaaait, how did Hotaru's shoes randomly apeer on his feet?
Yes! Do just pop out of no where and make my day so much brighter!
Both Naoki and you, Sal!
-sigh- I love this comic. Thanks for the update
And and I hope your feeling better soon!
