"Nana Buluku, this is the best day ever, hahahaaa! I didn't think she'd actually let me do this, waaaa! I shall see the entire world from atop this Uzuri!"

"Nana Buluku, why did I even agree to do this? Degraded to a mere steed. *sigh* Nevermore."


Important Service Announcement!


A very special picture for a very special occasion! This is Anza's first anniversary, yay! Let's hope "onward" is where the comic will keep going, so here's to a few more years of Anza!

There hardly would be any point in doing this without YOU, dear reader, so thank you very much for your constant support! :heart:



Hey, you! First time seeing Anza? Then why don't you

check out the official Anza tumblr over HERE ? :la:




Holy crap, would you believe it? I've actually been doing this for a year!
Also the picture contents.
Those are also not very credible. :XD:
THIS MUST'VE BEEN 'SHOPPED, EH?

Yup. I've said it once and I'll say it again, you've completely erased the awareness of their nudeness. They simply are and that's not a bad thing.

Congratulations.  A year just flew by.  I'm glad you started this.  I will stick by it as long as you keep it going.

This is an adorable picture.  I'm glad they both look happy.  Even Uzuri is smiling!

It's clear from this that Uzuri has warmed up to Kebibi a lot since they first met. Back then, she wouldn't even consider letting Kebibi on her back like this. :D

Heh, yeah, but look at her expression! :lol:
She is NOT having fun. :XD:

Akhenamen's avatar
Yeah, she's making no attempt to hide that. :XD:

But look at it this way. Even though she's hating it, she's letting Kebibi ride her back. So she is doing something she hates so that Kebibi can have some fun. I don't think Uzuri would do that at all for somebody she didn't care about. And that's what makes this one of the sweetest Anza pictures yet. ^^

Felicitations! for your story's anniversary is good to see it going, your story is really unique you deserve to celebrate this moment. 
This is a really touching juncture, this brings joy! especially for Kebibi, i remember when my uncle carried me on his shoulders and i could see everything,
Its a shame that Uzuri sees steeds as inferior beings :(  they are awesome!.

Heheheeee, thank youuu! :D Yeah, the view she has from Uzuri must be amaaazing! :XD:

Ah, that's just a matter of perspective. I'm sure she'd appreciate any kind of mount if she had the need for one. But being a mount, and nothing else, is another story! :lol:

Congratulations, Tchai! A year with Kebibi and Uzuri, and a fun fantasy adventure in Africa, became interested me about other African cultures and languages, apart from the anthropomorphic aesthetics of a giraffe and hyena.

Aww, the little love of Uzuri... haha, i laugh she says ''Degraded to a mere steed. *sigh* Nevermore.''.

PD: For a moment I was impressed that it was a gift for my birthday (March 14), the birthday of the great Luis Angel (yeah, it's me) But that art is for the anniversary of them, and I am happy anyway, Tchia. (:-p)

Great! I'm very glad my love for African cultures has rubbed off on you! :la:

Waaa! Your birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Gosh, if I had known, I would totally make something for you; your unending support means a lot! ;____;
I promise to at least dedicate to you the next non-comic piece I will make! You'll get the full-size, too! :dummy:

And thank you! :D

This is a really cute and precious moment and bonding time between these two.  I love the background, the scene and their expressions.

Wonderful job.

1 year!!  Congratulations Tchai!  It's been an absolutely stunning story to read, feel and see.  I've never seen a more visually stunning on-line comic/series, nor has one been so enchantingly mysterious.  

As for this picture... *laughs*  Their complete and opposite reactions sum up their relationship perfectly. XD

Oh gosh, you and your absolutely spoiling compliments. ;____;
Gah, this is exactly the feel I wanted for Anza!
I'm so happy to know this feels so unique, thank youuuu! :hug:

They're not spoiling, they're honest. :)  I've been reading web comics since they first came into existence (... cause I'm old), and this is easily the most unique.  *smiles and hugs back*  Thank YOU for being willing to continue the story for everyone, and even go out of the way to make special renders for certain paw-obsessed people. >_>
