Pitch Black Summer - Afterword by JimLiesman Pitch Black Summer - Afterword by JimLiesman
Read the comic here: First Page

So it's done! Thank you very much for reading!

While it took some time, I (and probably you guys too) realized that this one was finished rather quick. That's because I kept my focus on this comic instead of spreading it to other series like before. I'll be honest, I'm kind of running out of inspiration for other series, especially UW Club because I don't know which direction it should take in the future. Meanwhile inspiration for this series is keep entering my head ^_^ Maybe I've told you this already but I prefer stuff with more stories and background instead of just simple pictures. Of course, I don't hate simple pictures but stuff with stories are much more fun to enjoy! I wish more UW artist do stuff like comic series/novel series/games more often (Before you ask, yes, I'm waiting eagerly for Savaster's new comic series!)

The characters for this one are a bit more complicated than Short Suffocating Summer, especially the girl, Hoshimori. She has a case of Chuunibyou/Middle School 2nd Year Syndrome (even though she's a bonafide High School 2nd Year student ^_^). Explaining this syndrome probably would be a bit hard... You can google it for more details but basically they are people who act "cool" "mysterious" (at least what they thought is cool) and some even acting like they have mysterious powers, a fallen angel or even a reincarnation of dark lord! While of course, other people think they are totally silly XD. But really, some Chuunibyou characters can actually look cool! I really like this personality in characters because of course they can be cool and adorable at the same time. Some of my favorite Chuunibyou characters are Ranko Kanzaki from Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, Megumin from KonoSuba, and Akiko/Shion Tachibana from AniTore. And the guy character, Hikage, he's a tsundere... You can google that term too if you want more details, but basically these type of characters are the one who seems cold/harsh to other people, while deep in their heart they actually really care. 

One thing I should apologize is the pacing/length of this series. This one has more pages than Short Suffocating Summer, but I still think it's not enough, content-wise. I'm sure some of you are waiting for CPR action, and I do want that too! But if I put in every ideas I have into this, it would span 20+ pages probably (totally exaggeration, but you get the idea) I might get bored and stuff like that, stop working on this and never finished it! That wouldn't do! That's why I keep it simple, and try to spread the stuff I want to draw and show to you throughout the whole series (Oh, by the way, I'm planning to make 4 titles of this comic series, so still 2 remaining!)  So I'm sorry if there are parts in this title which seems to be rushed, I will try to improve myself in the next chance. Once again, thank you for reading!
