Hey guess what! Surprise Vacation TRIP! Yesh, I knew this would happen. Well, I guess the new pages are going to be delayed for a bit since I'll be gone and busy for the next couple of weeks. :( Sorry guys. I'll try to get on it soon.

Hey there! It's been a while hasn't it? Well, there's not much I can say, life just hit really hard recently and I haven't had a chance to really get back into comic making.

However, after meeting and taking to the writer of Dubious Company and the artist/writer of Modest Medusa &nb… of them ran a panel at Kumoricon about Web comics), I've become determined to start up The NanKan Agency again. But, since I am going to school full time now and working on transferring to an actual animation school, I'm going to have a sizable buffer this time around. Also, the pages won't be in color anymore since they not only take 10+ hours worth of work to do, coloring them was one of the main reasons I didn't continue. (Time constraints +dreading coloring the next page= major motivation killer)

Also, I've decided to make this a comic only account, meaning that I won't be commenting on stuff that isn't comic related on here anymore. Instead, I'm going to go through my watch/friends list here and re-watch people from my other account that I spend much more of my time on. So, if you notice some named Shinyako watching you in the coming weeks, that's me from my main account. I've met quite a few awesome people doing this and I feel bad for not staying in touch with them. (looking at all you guys from :iconwinningisforlosers:. Speaking of which, how is that going now? I haven't been able to keep up with it)

One more thing: Unfortunately, the Halloween special will most likely not continue any time soon due to the remain page being wrecked. I had the remaining pages inked but not colored in when water got to them and kind of wrecked them. At the time, I was having a hard time at work and the thought of redoing the pages just made me depressed. Looking at them now, I don't really know if I want to redo them at all. Maybe one day I'll get around to it but it isn't looking too bright. The Minis may or may not continue since I was only doing them to relive stress from the main comic and I don't know if I'd be able to handle them as well as the main comic.

So basically:

:bulletred: The main comic is coming back. I'm aiming to have it start January 3rd and have it update Tuesdays and Thursdays (barring incidents like surprise vacations/ moving) Color comics might make a come back but they will be rare.

:bulletblue: I'm going to rewatch all of the people I've met through this account on my main account Shinyako

:bulletgreen: Said account is also where I'll be doing a lot of promotional work for the comic.

:bulletyellow: The Halloween special and the minis are probably not going to continue due to lack of time and other issues.

I'll be checking in every so often so feel free to leave comments.

I fully support you!!! :w00t:
I look forward to seeing the NanKan Agency start up again--in color, or in black&white it's all awesome!!
Actually, it wouldn't be such a huge leap if it's only in black and white, since that's how many of the early pages were. Though I like seeing color (and your superduper-special-shiny-effects), they aren't essential. After all, look at Jeff Smith and Bone--black and white, until years later, when they were reprinted by Scholastic for a New Look. You could do much the same thing and I don't believe it'll hurt your pages at all. (I just want to see more art from you!!! And I want to see those characters again!!! Their story NEEDS to be told!!!)

OOh, Getting into an animation school sounds good to me!!! :excited:
...If I were a millionaire, I'd totally start up my own animation studio and hire you on the spot. <_<

It's all right if the Halloween special and Minis don't continue, since they were merely a taste in between The Big Stuff to keep us satisfied...The Main Comic was the meat, the Specials and Minis were bonus treats. ^,~
(I'm just looking forward to seeing you return to comic work!!!!)

And keeping this account as a comic only account sounds pretty smart to me, since it's NanKan oriented anyway--it'll keep things less cluttered for you, I imagine. =)

Ahhh, I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors--may 2012 bring only excitement and joy!!! :dance:
