I've read the whole thing twice now, and I'm also eagerly awaiting the new chapter.

Huh. I wish he'd dropped a note about it here. Last I heard it was coming together, so it's disappointing to learn after the fact that it's been put on hiatus. Ah well, I hope things go well for him on future projects.

I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Yeah that is a shame, I was looking forward to seeing what he was gonna do with it. Still I suppose he is doing what's best for the comic and hope that he can return to it eventually and resume it how he wants to.

That's a shame, but it's likely for the best that you're not working on it while you're lacking the drive.

Hopefully he'll come back soon, but at least he's working on other interests as well. :)

Gentlemen.

I had no idea this thread had been bumped or that any of this conversation had taken place. My sincere and deep apologies. :sniffle:

I had a rough period of complete burnout and even wanting to avoid the issue completely. I'll get into that later since I have to get to bed soon. For now I just wanted to say this;

Something significant happened yesterday. I got excited about the story to the point of emotional containment failure. Started cranking up the Rammstein music I used to listen to when I was writing for Asuka back in the day. I imagined that epic air battle over North Korea and I actually started drawing again. I drew and inked the 2nd scene of the 3-scene chapter. I wrote the final scene and I even have a prologue short scene planned. I could have the 3rd scene drawn and inked this week if this holds up.

My big psychological problem right now is that I have made announcements about this chapter before and I don't want to play this up. I'm trying to keep it low key until I have a firm release date. I just think everyone could be so cynical if I did try to whip up any excitement- and they'd be within their rights.

So let me just nurture this thing this week and see where we are in 7 days. I will take some time tomorrow to read everyone's recent posts and commence my big city-to-city whistle stop apology tour. :facepalm: I did skim the comments and you are right. I should have at least discussed it here. I just got to the point where I felt shame about it all after I had talked about finishing the chapter and nothing came of it. My bads.

I compiled another scene this evening. The chapter is 14 pages long so far.

I've been thinking about what Bagh said and I feel pretty scummy about not discussing it here. I think I lost a lot of credit which really sucks when you need people to come around again. Having lost the Asuka/Rei anon board recently, that was a major source for chapter downloads averaging about half of my total download readership. It's starting to feel like I'm gonna be rebuilding the fan base almost from zip. Well maybe not that bad, but it sure will feel good to be back in the feedback rhythm again.

I don't know if I said this before, but this chapter is very NERV/SEELE GENDO/FUYUTSKY/HARDEK heavy. It's also quite short. Page count will probably finish somewhere in the 20s. But I figure that's alright for easing this comic back into production.

I am glad I didn't do this when I was burned out though. As long as I can rebuild the readership, you guys will get a product worth reading. For the coming chapters, I'm really gonna need to be near the top of my game.

You shouldn't feel scummy for not discussing it here, things happen and if you weren't going to be working on it then there was no reason to mention it.

I didn't know that 'that board' had gone recently, can't say I'm totally surprised though. Last time I checked it out they seemed to have an issue with spam bots.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Might have to do a re-read of the entire thing to bring me up to speed on it. :)

I echo JC's sentiments; I'm definitely interested to see what the new chapter brings to the table-- and I'll probably do some rereading to get myself back into the zone.

We're all Asuka-fanboys? I take great exception to that. It's Mari I want to plow nine ways from Sunday, if you don't mind.

What? She's 28 now.

You guys are the best! May I recommend Chapters 12,13,14 and maybe 17 if you're down for some NSFW humor?

I am relieved to hear from people again. I just got carried away with other stuff (COUGHzootopiaCOUGH) and I needed to realize that that stuff was nothing more than short term candy, not real creative nourishment. I will try to keep it balanced, not totally cut off that other stuff, but EVA-303 really needs to be in the driver's seat from now until its completion. After all, we are down to the last handful of chapters. It would be tragic to let it die now. :sniffle:

Well I'm at work now, so unfortunately the NSFW humour will have to wait :P

I will however make a note of that for when I'm home tonight.

Well, while you guys are re-reading the comic, I went and watched Re-Death again.

Oh God, it's too late now. I'm hooked. Back to late nights of drawing and inking. Tell my wife and kids I love them LOL. :lol:

Does anyone know what happened to Bagheera? I notice he hasn't been online since July and he was one of my favorite feedbackers. (:|

Aw crap! Didn't he get too passionate about the truth before? Thanks for the quick reply and it's really good to see you again. I'm sorry for being a jerk and disappearing like that.

Life goes on; if and when you offer us more of your work, we will be delighted to see it; but it'll be all the better for being done when you actually want to do it - follow the muse when it comes, but don't attempt to force it.

Holy shit Grumman Cat is back? Grumman Cat is back! Praise Adam and Lilith!

But in all seriousness, I'm glad you were able to find your muse. It was a sad day when you put Eva-303 on hiatus. Hope you don't lose her again.

YES! Still too much work to do for me to set a firm release date yet (though I have one chosen). I can offer this glimpse of the assembled pages of Chapter 19.

The chapter is full SFW so no alternate version needed.
