The start of chapter 2! Look at that! I feel very accomplished. Also, drawing street scenes is a pain in the ass, but it’s very satisfying. Thank you, Manga Studio, and your glorious perspective rulers, for allowing me to not suck at drawing backgrounds for once.

I’m going to keep referring to tearing people’s faces off. Sorry! I looked at what I have written so far, and it’s going to be some weird running joke because it totally keeps coming up.

I keep meaning to make Malaya’s clothes kind of drab as set up for a shopping montage I totally plan on following through with, but she keeps ending up dressed fairly cute but simple. That shopping montage is happening regardless, because there is nothing I enjoy more than a good shopping montage. Don’t worry about it.
