Biennial update

It's been awhile since I posted on the blahg, huh? Things have been a little slow perhaps, but they'll keep on chugging along.

FRHS sends me down some weird rabbit holes sometimes. Part of the problem is that, because the manga is from the early '90s, I suspect the references tend to predate the Internet. Compared to Ueshiba's references, which were actually fairly easy to google up, Ito's are darned obscure. Maybe self-referential too, which I'm not _that_ interested in digging into. Anyway, enjoy this kooky theory about Japanese being related to American Indians and the lost tribes of Israel.

It feels like I've been working on this chapter of Natsunokumo for-evah. It's kind of a nightmare to typeset without sacrificing either legibility or aesthetics; too many little bubbles stuffed with text. But whatever, it's done.

HoneyComb: this should be the easiest so I dunno why I'm slowpoking it the worst. It's much more relaxing to re-read and enjoy Katsura's work, instead of scanlating it. I just got Lady HoneyComb, which is some kind of side-story where the crew is now working at a hotel. She just can't quit this format, can she? And I can't stop reading it.
