Re: Four Leaf Studios at Comiket 91

Magnetic train: the art books are usually about ¥300-500 depending on the size etc. I'll have paperbacks of Zemlya for about ¥1500 (as printing is pretty costly). Not sure about Weee/VCR Hivemind: yeah it is boggling when you think about it. People born when we started working on KS are almost old e...

Re: Four Leaf Studios at Comiket 91

I was on the fence about going to this Comiket because I have no experience with them, and wasn't sure if I wanted to buy the guidebook or stand in line for hours if I'm just going to wander. Then I remembered that KS had appeared at the previous Comiket when I wasn't in Japan, and I was about to m...

Re: Ask!

Maybe the journey is more important than the destination for them?

I thought that we couldn't due to the sex scenes

Re: A new novel by Cpl Crud

So, does Zemlya mean anything, or is it a word you made up? Per Wikipedia, it's a transliteration of the Ukrainian word for Earth. That may or may not be an intended reference here though. I've actually included this and a number of other explanations here (Beware, there are many spoilers ahead): h...

Re: Ask!

Yes, I ran We are IN Denial (WinD) for a few years. The biggest thing we did was Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, but there were a few rew others It was a while ago but here is a blog post about it http://wp.me/p1huKD-eu Bit of an odd question I suppose but, Crud, who would you say it's your favorite gir...

Re: A new novel by Cpl Crud

There is now a paperback available if anyone is into physical books. I have to admit Doom's cover looks great in the flesh. Apologies for the long link but this should get you directly to the paperback. If you buy the real book you should also be able to get the digital version for next to nothing h...

Re: Ask!

It was bit of a quirk that I had left over from the days of doing fan-subs. In translation it can be a bit of a useful tool, but I have since changed sides and I think that the "real" translators are able to find ways to have the same effect without jamming "-chan" in everywhere. You did fan-subs? ...

Re: Ask!

I seem to remember ke^4 fell prey to artist self-loathing. You know, "my stuff is shit, all I do sucks, I can't do this". Fairly common ailment. Self-criticism truly is a double-edged sword, on the one hand it's really good to have some, but you really need to moderate it or it will turn into self-...

Re: A new novel by Cpl Crud

Is there a PDF version available somewhere? Amazon only offers "Kindle" They offer apps for emulating kindle on phones but I dislike reading novels on small screens. There are Mac and PC versions of the Kindle app. It works pretty much exactly like a PDF reader, so that's what I've been using. I wi...

It's Russian for "land" or "Archipelago"

It's based on Novaya Zemlya, which is where the biggest nuclear bomb was dropped.

I'm going to release a "reader's guide" with all of these Easter Eggs when I release the paperback.

PDFs are difficult to control and monetise.

There will be a paperback shortly though

Re: A new novel by Cpl Crud

Also, there are a number of milestones in the blog post that will trigger me to get off my backside and write more KS fanfiction, including the much-requested third part to A Runner's Afternoon. So... If we buy your novel, will that count as "requesting fanfiction"? If you're ok with that, then yes...
