Where You Once Belonged - Page 1 by mysterycycle Where You Once Belonged - Page 1 by mysterycycle
So here it is, the title page of my Katawa Shoujo doujinshi. I had wanted to have it completed by July 10, Hanako's birthday, but job and real life interfered.

I'm working on the script and the pages in my spare time, so I can't make any promises regarding how long it's going to take me to complete this. However, I'll post each page as I complete it.

I'm doing this project in part because I had the urge to write KS fan-fiction (the first time I've ever actually gone through with such an urge); like many KS fans, I want to spend more time with Hisao and Hanako (and the other characters, as well, but this story focuses primarily on them).

I'm also using this as an excuse to experiment with a more manga-like style than I usually use, which is returning to my roots in a sense (I used to draw in that style when I was in high school). Finally, but no less importantly, this is a way to teach myself to use Manga Studio EX, which is the program I'm making this comic in.

As the disclaimer says, Katawa Shoujo and all associated characters are the property of Four Leaf Studios.

I'll watch just for this, if it is.

Ha ha... I'm glad people are still interested in it! A few years on, and the game still impacts me. I don't want to let the year run out before I actually put this thing together!

I am! I've been incredibly lame about it, putting it off and dinking around with the script and the first page endlessly. But it's at the top of my to-do list, and I'm still pretty enthusiastic about the story.

Hanako is just too adorable for KS to end with that, even though it was happy

Yes, I have all but the ending scripted, and I have a pretty good idea of how I would like it to end. I'm currently working on some commissioned work, so I won't be able to get back to it until after the end of January, but the break from it is whetting my appetite to return to it. I really have some emotional investment in it, I guess!

Understandable, the longer it takes means the more thought you've put into it and the better it'll be ^--^ hanako's story deserves to be continued because of the potential it holds. And you aren't the only one with emotions for something like this :p i hope you create a masterpiece :D

You should totally do it. The world is made a little better with more opportunities to spend time with the KS characters.

But, uhh, don't take as long as I've been taking, if you can help it.

Is there a fanfic already written, and you're just putting it into a graphic-novel format? If so, I'd REALLY like to read it!

Unfortunately, no. Well, I mean, it *is* written...mostly...but it's currently divided between a tattered notebook and a Scrivener file on my laptop.

Excuse my nonsense, but someone once told me a doujjin was a porn comic. Was he right or wrong? :confused:

:iconmysterycycle:
mysterycycle Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Professional General Artist
Technically, doujinshi is a self-published work, usually that of an amateur, and often based in someone else's property: the manga equivalent of fan-fiction. No pornographic content is necessarily implied by the term, though it's gotten that connotation, at least in the West (kind of like how many people think of slash-fiction when you mention fan-fiction).

There aren't going to be any nude or sex scenes in this one, in any case. :)
