  1. The mangas I spam got potential too, too much choice.

    Skeery competitive market~ Ze poor artists =3

  2. Meh, that goes for any art form, but at least the market’s bigger now. Although that also makes it harder to stand out.
    I don’t know why, but I’ve never been able to get into manga the way I did with anime. Which is extra weird considering I’ve got thousands of comics and graphic novels from back in ye old days, but somehow manga never really got me involved. Maybe it’s the black and white-ness, or the toilet paper it’s printed on, but I always found it to lack a lot of atmosphere which anime did offer. Or maybe the manga I tried just weren’t that good.
    As for anime, I’m so out of touch with what’s current and good it’s not even funny, which is why it’s nice to come across things like this from time to time to see if there’s anything awesome I haven’t seen yet.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
