@DawleeRipper: I know right?? I think the same thing whenever I see @Travelingpooch 's avatar too!
WELCOME BACK! <3
I had fallen behind in this comic and have started rereading it from the beginning. I just have to say the hand in the first panel.... that is a REALLY NICE HAND. <3

Nah, don't even worry about it. I mean, yeah, I'm sad to see Yayoi left unfinished, but I completely understand the feeling of losing the momentum and drive for a story. In which case, you gotta let it go. And that's okay.

However, Like Quadrant said, keep us posted. I'd LOVE to see any new projects/stories/illustrations you might come up with in the future. I love your art style, and the way you unfold stories in your way of storytelling, so I honestly look forward to anything you might come up with in the future.

Also, Happy Holidays. <3

@Luckyluve2100: Pssst, in case you didn't catch on, the two creators of this comic are sisters. And their art styles are very similar, but Somi uses a lot of opacity brushes + coloring, and Juli uses very bold and defined coloring. That's the only way I can tell the difference. ;D

@SomiJuli: Thanks for the update! <3 Hope Somi is having a blast on vacation.

I live in the northwest of the US, and here there isn't really any standard for shoes on/off. And like others have said it can depend on region/family/religion/personal preference.

But, in my experience people usually keep shoes on unless asked not to. Then it's socks. I almost never see slippers. I'm 25 and I have never owned a pair of slippers.
And around the house I've always gone barefoot.
@Dokuwa @guest
Naruto, if I recall, just had constant flashbacks. Which I had a love/hate with. It was cool seeing everyone's backstory. ...but you literally see EVERYONES backstory.

I don't think this felt too long though. ;)
@JunnGerl: I had a friend who went into Psychiatry for a while. When they decided on a career change, they told me "Anyone who goes into that line of work is trying to silently understand and fix their own demons, myself included."

WELCOME BACK!! Don't worry, I went through a similar thing trying to retrieve my password... then to retrieve the really old email account the password was sent to. xD Glad you're back.

AND I WOULD TOTALLY BE INTERESTED IN YOUR ORIGINAL STORY!
INQUIRING MINDS NEED TO KNOW!
BEAUTIFUL! <3
Peri has the best face expressions. <3
Peri's face in that last panel though. <3 PRICELESS.
Oh snap, THE END HAS COME! <3
I just have to say that I adore this story from beginning to end and all the characters in it. And that I am really glad that I was able to experience these characters grow together in real time.
Thank you Maddie. <3
May all your future stories be as successful as this one.
