OMG! It just revived! [Mar. 22nd, 2006|03:51 pm]

So... anyone who still has a journal here (I know I moved to Xanga after getting fed up with the slow servers) and is still interested in drawing, webcomics... men in skirts...

Shonen Chikara just kind of revived itself the other night. I know we've been saying "Oh, we're working on it" on and off, but this is the real deal. Why? Because not only is that website pulling itself together, but we took the duty upon ourselves to read through the comic and decide...


Yes, friends, it's changing a bit. But no worries - all your favorite (or not-so-favorite) characters are still there, it's just that we're planning out the entire thing before we get going. So I decided to keep this updated with a little progress report for you!

So far, out of an expected 30 (or so) issues, we have 10 planned out. After we finish the planning, we're going to re-write all the scripts, so we have everything written before hand. Nothing will change or be thrown together this time - it's all gonna be finished. End of story. After the scripts are finalized, we will begin the layout and penciling of the intro issue, followed by inking, and then the site will go live, with our first complete new issue!

So, without further ado, here's the progress bar, and we'll continue to keep you updated as we get changes.

OMG you girls are alive! I know, I've been gone for a bit myself and my comic's also been on quite the hiatus(again). I just got a new computer, which should make its way to my house Tuesday-ish, and I got a whole bunch of new art programs for it, so I'm pretty excited. Once things get settled, I may even start updating again.

I'm so glad your comic is coming back, I've missed it so much! Good luck with the revamping, and I eagerly await its return =3

yes, we are still alive! But who is this? o.o We are excited to start again, though, and it's always good to hear from people who are looking forward to it as well!

You better believe I am excited. I am very excited. So excited that I need to clean up this mess I made. O_o.

So, you're re-doing the entire story in an entirely new draft? That's really cool, and I know it'll be amazing, but please keep the original version of Shonen Chikara online also, somewhere where people can see it, like in an archive or something, because the original Shonen Chikara manga has several perfect moments which shouldn't simply vanish into history, in my opinion.

Re: Cool!

Yes, we will keep the original online. But we're also letting people know that the storylines do change in the newer, and though somethin may have happened in the older version, that doesn't mean it'll still be there. :/ But no worries... the "classis" moments will still stay. :P

After all this time I just decided to check the Shonen Chikara site. And I find that there will be more issues, yay!!!!

I thought you two had given up on the project, so I'm really glad to hear that progress is being made. I can't wait for the new first issue!

I'll check back every once in a while, but you should email me updates. Like when the new site is up, or the first issue comes out, etc.

Oh yeah, how has Japan been so far? Hope to hear from you soon!

Re: Finally!


Nice to hear from you! Japan has been a blast - lots of new people, new words, new food, new everything. We ride bikes everywhere and the weather here is unpredictable - today it rained, downpoured, then hailed, and five minutes later it stopped and the sun came out. Crazy.

We will be sure to keep people updated. We are still planning out the issues, because we are having problems deciding something towards the end. But we are nearing completion of the outlines!
