The storytelling is awesome and is your true strength, visuals are more than ok but as long as you maintain the passion and the intrigue, personally I would keep reading even if you used something close to stick figures (which you are not, by no means, for example I really like your Rei, unnaturally faithful to the original - I know that speaking of original concerning Rei may seem a double entendre, but it isn't).

Cheers from Italy.

GRAZIE, Augustus! One of my favorite things is to hear from new readers! Originally, I thought to write a fan fic, but decided that a comic offered more appeal. So I kinda forced myself to improve my drawing as best I could. -o-;

As for Haruhi?

Oh my. She would probably swallow up the entire comic! :bigeyes:

Still plugging away on the Chapter. After working pretty much nonstop since December, I do feel the need to take an extended break. I'm finding myself quite easily distracted these last few weeks. But fear not, I believe you'll find it a fantastic chapter.

In the meantime, one of my distractions is this rather distracting bit of art featuring OC Kelly Wallis who is still waiting for her 'official' comic debut. I really like the look on her face here. It's totally different from her normal persona, but how many of us have different persona we don't often show.

Chapter 13 now (finally) has a release date!

It will be released on Friday, August 16th! Sorry for the wait! I think you're gonna love it.

In the meantime, as I've finally started page assembly, here's a grab from the first scene.

YES! FINALLY, I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER.

Boy, it looks like it's going to still be a darker take on their relationship......FINE WITH ME! :lol:
Still....hopefully they can get through it, considering what both have been through.

I think it's gonna be worth the wait in my humble opinion. If I'm not careful, it can seem kinda like a retread of Chapter 12.

But I cut to the chase pretty quick and I think the struggle of Chapter 13 is unique to the struggle of Chapter 12. At least I hope you will all agree.

I have put together the final pages and the total page count is 75. However I want to offer some preview pics for Volume 3 at the end of this chapter. All I need is Misato's voice promising

:misato_service:

Keep checking back in, folks! The grand finale of Volume 2 is on its way!

HERE IT IS, GANG!

At last, Chapter 13 is here and the dramatic conclusion of Volume 2. And the conclusion of the story arc which began with Unit 04 in Chapter 7.

As before, I LOVE feedback and comments, but remember to spoiler-guard them for those who haven't read yet. This chapter has some mega moments in it.

Thanks each and every one of you for hanging in there as long as you have. We're 2/3rds of the way done!

Anyway, I've made you wait long enough. Enjoy!

Glad you liked, THANKS!

I added a new feature starting with this chapter, the PREVIEW. I tried to voice it like Misato would have done. Hopefully it will be a regular feature in every chapter from now on.

Let me know what you think.

I appreciate your unbridled enthusiasm! I might have some short chapterettes out later this summer/fall. I want to bring the whole Saburo thing to a head before the Vegas episode.

Not to sound paranoid, but what mistakes could I have fixed?

As for music, there's this song from Kare Kano that I kept listening to during the final scene. Thought it was perfect. Any way, glad you liked it!

Now this is a hell of a way to close out volume two. I won't say that you managed to pull an Empire Strikes Back, where the second installment in a trilogy is the best of the bunch, since volume one was really good (even down to the old, scratchy, somewhat amateurish art... yes, GrummanCat, I still love that art, even after seeing what you can do now!) and volume three hasn't even come out yet, but volume two definitely was very good. It had its rocky patches, and there were moments when I didn't want to go on... not because it was bad, but because I was scared of what would happen. In the end, though, I had to. To not know would be worse than to know and be saddened.

This was great. It really is better when you can read it all at once. The waits in between chapters were difficult; I believe I have said so before, but now I understand the feelings of Charles Dickens' fans in America who had to wait for the next ship from England to read the next installment, calling out across the water as soon as the ships were within earshot to ask if Little Nell was dead or not.

SPOILER: Show
This really was the best way to end this volume. I feel like everything had been leading to this. Well, of course it had, but it really felt right. I feel like maybe things have a chance to work out now. At the very least, the inner universe is calmed now. The exterior world is still full of troubles, but at least things seem to be on the right track now.

The whole final scene was great. Asuka's face was priceless. I wonder if Misato will find them passed out in their car in the airbase parking lot because they were too tired to finish driving home and decided to get a little extra sleep instead of bothering going home, changing, brushing their teeth, etc., since at that point I imagine both of them could probably have passed out anywhere.


Volume three looks like it will be awesome. Keep it rolling. Good luck in the new year!

Hehe.... I've been waiting 3 years! THREE YEARS to pull that one out! :D

Thanks and I'm glad you appreciated!

Maru- THANKS! Interesting analogy about Dickens. I wish I could spew it out even faster, but doing the 103-page Chapter 12 in only 5 weeks left me burned out. There were times during Chapter 13 that I was running on fumes.

Indeed, everything over the whole course of the comic has been leading up to this, and in fact, is leading straight through this to the distant future I have already written in my mind. That is to say that I can tell you exactly how it all ends and what happens to who etc. But of course.... ;)

SPOILER: Show
One of my favorite aspects of the chapter is the way Asuka doesn't come easily. Of course she WANTS to go with Shinji. She wants everything to be OK and for him to forgive her. Even if she doesn't admit it or is not consciously aware, she WAS happy with him once upon a time. But, she NEEDS to know he REALLY wants her to come back. It's not enough that he gives her a ring. Of course that got her attention, but she has to test him to make sure he's not going to let go once she finally lets herself need him. If she orders him to let her go, will he do it, or does he really really need her?

There's a follow-up scene to this I may get to soon where Shinji and Asuka are at lunch. When she finds out he didn't sleep at all the previous night (and hey- neither did she) before driving all the way to Frisco, she declares they are not going back today and instead get a hotel room.

FWIW, Charles Lindbergh didn't sleep at all the night before beginning his historic 36-hour flight across the Atlantic! :cringe:

That tombstone thing is over-the-top embarrassing! All I can say is, I should not be allowed to edit pages past a certain time on a certain amount of sleep. Enimal, says I keep churning out these chapters, and well, this is what you get sometimes. :facepalm: I guess I'll have to let it stand as a sort of film flub. -o-;
