Hinata 823
Woo hoo! We're on the home stretch!
This, the last chapter in the Shinsakana City Arc, is a short one. Buckle up!



Hinata 819-820
Sorry for the late upload! Only 2 updates this week since there's one double-spread that took forever. -_-

EDIT: I realized that I inadvertently stole the first part of this quote from :iconneko-kaioshin:'s signature. Must be because you comment so often, that I'm seeing it all the time. I didn't steal the part about the ice cream though XD. Hope you like the little subconscious shout-out. Thanks for reading for so long!



Finished the lines for the last chapter in this arc! Phew, that took a while.
Hey guys!

Man, I've had a lot of journals in the past couple of days... but this one, like the others, is rather important.

Partly because of laziness, partly because of negligence, and partly because of a lack of confidence in the quality of my work, I never uploaded to heavily trafficked sites like Webtoons/Tapastic. I now look at that as a huge mistake, because in my absence, others were more than willing to fill that gap, step in and use my works for their benefit, and I was simply oblivious to it for more than a year. Well, the fish says no more!

I know a lot of you may be readers that came to my dA page after the impersonator's Webtoons account was deleted. If Webtoons is your preferred format, and you don't mind turning your head sideways to read all the double-page spreads, then rejoice!

I have finished uploading and am glad to announce the launch of my Webtoons and Tapas accounts:
Webtoons:… (I use the name Vfish on this site)
Tapas: (I'm verticalfish here)

Those sites are not exactly amenable to page-by-page uploads the way smackjeeves and deviantArt are, so I'll have to figure out a release schedule - whether to cut chapters into small 4-8 page chunks and release more frequently (every 1-2 weeks), or release a chapter at a time, which would take more time (>2 months per release).

My smackjeeves chugs on as always, for manga-style format reading:

I am sort of, kind of... OK, I'm just plain terrible at promoting my own work. I realized that when I found out that the fake Webtoons account had 1.2 million views and 11,600 subscribers in a 12-month period, which is about the same as the cumulative total views of the almost 2,000 deviations on my deviantArt page over 10 years...

When I thought that, I realized... I don't even submit to the groups on dA anymore, where I used to put my TSB pages. In fact, I haven't done it in years. Does anybody know any good groups where I could submit my pages to expand my readership? If anybody has any suggestions, I'm all ears!

Thanks so much for your support and readership.

Interesting comic series you got.  Although I got a question which I'm not sure will be answered in the comic and that is what happens when Hinata's safe guard comes across a threat that is capable of annihilating any living thing on earth since the programming works in a way where she transforms into that animal/animals capable of overcoming the obstacles confronting her.

There's a response for that too!
TheMysteryX Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2018
Judging by how you don't say what the response is I take it that will be revealed sometime in the future in the comic.  Guess most forms of advanced technology can pretty much kill any living thing if not destroy entire continents making them barren wastelands.
