There you have it folks While these chibi-versions of our heroines toddle off into the sunset, Bata Neart will return for another chapter in a couple of weeks.
Thank you all again for reading this far and for your continued patience whenever I set up a break like this. However, to try and keep things rolling, I have put together a few things for you interest:
This first page of Chapter 7 is on the block and has already been toned at this stage. Featuring the first re-design of a *certain character* for nearly the guts of 10 years.
Moon & Blood (Special Edition)
This year saw a first for me, with my very first staff credit in an actual manga-manga!
I sometimes do ad-hoc proof reads for Nao’s English in some school materials, but in this case she asked me to check through one of her published volumes. I do this just to be helpful, but often Nao will send me a physical copy of a piece I work on as a thank you, and when this lovely volume of work arrived I was in for a wonderful shock:
Apart from the lovely thank you note at the end, you might spot my name appear in the credits just above the copyright. That had me smiling for days 😀
If you are curious on what a proper Japanese manga is like when my take on English is involved, you might want to check it out 😀 It’s worth it alone for Nao’s outstanding sense of humor It hasn’t been distributed just yet but will be available via: http://www.dmpbooks.com/
Ask Aoife – Part Deux
In the weeks between now and Chapter 7, I would like to open up to comments for some more ‘Ask Aoife’ questions. Just like last year, if you have a question to pose directly to Aoife, please put a comment up with the tag @AskAoife, and Aoife herself will answer. This year I can’t alas draw the answers, but I get the feeling that this does not matter too much when it comes to Aoife!
And with that, I wish you all a happy summer and hope to see you all again when Bata Neart returns. Thank you again!
