Xin Fan Manga – End of Chapter 1

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

13 new pages of the Xin Fan Manga and now chapter 1 is fully complete. Looking back at the 73 pages of manga (!) we definitely enjoyed the fresh feel of the series, as well as the progressional improvements in art and directing. It was great to see a series we’ve worked really hard portrayed by another greatly dedicated artist.

Thank you, Animeanonymous!

*And hopefully we will be able to see chapter 2 sometime soon >:)

This is a little experimental, especially for a Kazahana piece. It’s not really been done in this context and I think it worked out well. It was not originally intended as a video; I wrote it as a poem in response to seeing a picture of Asada drawn by Neah. Extra thanks to Max, Azure, and Seishou no Hana for their participation in this project. Also thank Edwyn for finding the music.

Surface Updates

Monday, February 12th, 2007

We have received a lot of emails questioning the next installation of Surface, as well as some out of topic posts. The cliffhanger at the end of the first Surface seems to guarantee a sequel, if not a series. It has been over a year since the release of Surface 01. So we understand the impatience there. There has even been offers of continuing the story from where it was left in fictional format. Unfortunately those offers don’t interest us, since we do have further plans with Surface. We had Surface outlined as a series, and now it’s just a matter of pushing it out.

However, a 18 episode series such as Xin took us a good 3 years to complete. As far as reality goes we simply can’t afford to burn ourselves with another 3 years fully dedecating to a series. We can only take it more casually, as our personal affairs and obligations keep building.

Having that said, our plans with Surface 2 is to cut it into 4 segments so they can be handled easier. The script is pretty much done, and we have moved on to the storyboards and character symbols. Some issues have been stumbling the progress on our end, but hopefully it will be pumped out sometime soon. Surface 2 will introduce new character, new challenges, and the return of Nathan :) .
