Hey guys! ♥
Today I managed to finish all the rough sketches for the final pages of the comic..... It's 15 pages in total (together with the covers for the chapters).....
I have to answer truthfully that this story has been haunting me for months. But whenever I saw the binder with the outline I just ....could not get my self to do anything at all with it. I really don't know why, but I couldn't. And from experience I know that one can't force himself to write or else it would end up badly....so I waited for a day (like today) when I would finally be inspired enough to finish it. I teared up in the end..... the story meant a lot to me, it was FUN, I felt so sorry for Neji - all over again..... I wanted a happy end for the boy.
I am very sorry for procrastinating from it for so long, I had also irl issues to settle.
..................... and truth to be told, I was also on a HunterxHunter spree recently.....the show GOT ME BY TO THE CORE. If there's someone among you hesitating whether to watch it - I RECCOMEND IT FULLHEARTEDLY FOR IT IS A TRUE MASTERPIECE The first arcs aren't as good as the Heaven's Arena/YorkShin/Chimera Ant ones .... I also watched the version from 1999 and it gets its job BETTER DONE in the first arcs than the rewamp!!! The atmosphere is darker and there are really nice new touches to it that weren't in the manga. If you can swallow the oldschool animation, you'll also be rewarded.
2011 version has its trumphcard though, which the 1999 version doesn't -The Chimera ant arc, which is ....oh boy....I cannot even put to words what it meant to me and what it did to me.........but.......THINGS..........~~~....... so if you ever decide to watch the show and want to skip the "boring parts" (they are not that boring but they cannot even compare to those two arcs I mentioned), go with 1999 York Shin arc and the 2011 Chimera Ant arc. But beware - if you skip the "boring arcs", then all the buildup of the relationships the show did very skillfully will weaken its effect. Specially the Killua-Gon brotherhood. The whole thing hit me hard in the face specially because of the huuuuuuuuge build-up these two had in those arcs (beside all the great developement of the secondary characters).
So.......yeah.....getting back to the original point here ..... TERRACE IS ONLY A STEP AWAY FROM BEING DONE. I wanted to assure everyone who doubted or was afraid I might ditch the comic totally. I did not
