Hello there! I'm Brandon, I'm Japanese born in America. I got inspired by my friend to start writing a webcomic so here I am (^^;)

I am a HUGE anime and manga fan and would love to make some friends here who are the same.

I hope you'll check out my comic.

I have to say, 2016 was one hell of a roller coaster for me. Sorry I havent been updating a lot. I got a few pages sketched out and I just need to be able to get to a scanner to begin work on them. BTW, anyone excited for the next season of anime? I'm super looking forward to Konosuba season2 myself (^^)
Sorry for the long wait! (^^;;)
Well that was one hell of a greeting! (^^;;)

Sorry this is so late. I reworked it a few times until I was satisfied with the composition. Tried a few new things in this page as well that I learned from reading some shoujo manga. I also tried to get a higher contrast of Blacks and Whites to get the imagery to Pop more like Ken Akamatsu's UQ Holder. Also used more Dynamic Angles since I noticed I've been lacking in using them lately making the pages a little boring.

I hope that I was able to make this page at least look a little interesting (^^;;) Please Enjoy!
A little something until I finish the pages
Still working on panel layout and dialogue for the next few pages. I did this to take a break and also to show what Reika looks like in color since I never did before. It was also fun to get some more color practice. New Page is aiming for this weekend hopefully.
Glad to see you back (^^)
@ashtree-house: I'm very glad to hear that! (^^)
A little Trivia!
This page took 12 hours to finish lol. BG is seriously the biggest pain ever!
I would like to mention that...
Backgrounds are a pain in the butt.
I can't feel my eyeballs...
As I upload these pages, I am completing my final Project for College. My eyes feel numb now...

Using a Tablet.
I literally just started using a tablet for the first time on these first few pages so my lines really suck (^^;;)
It starts to get better later on though
