      Aw, thank you!

  2. I engage with a handful of webtoon canvas artists via tumblr, and there are two things they all do; first they ensure they have a buffer, and second they know when to call a break or hiatus with enough time to refill the buffer. When they need to, they’re not shy to call for a hiatus with a clear date when they will return. If they’re getting burned out, have things irl to handle, or because they simply want to. It’s as you say, unless you’re getting paid a full income, you have full authority over your own schedule. These artists all have a patreon tied to their comic so there is some measure of expectations to release a comic, while understanding that a little patreon cash isn’t sustainable and the artist still needs time to make ends meet. A buffer comes in handy to ensure there is a safety net if the artist can’t quite pump out a new comic in their normal time frame, if there is a delay beyond their control, and helps ensure time for quality. They’re always working a few chapters ahead of their readers and the hiatus normally comes when that buffer runs out and the artist needs a break. Often the buffer may come in the form of a mini “bonus” chapter containing OOC goodies or a qna with fans. Ultimately it is up to the artist to determine what the comfortable schedule is for themselves and work efficiently within it. But regardless of what that release schedule is, I think these are both smart strategies to employ if you’re looking to keep a solid baseline of readers interested in the story. One more comment while it’s fresh in mind; perhaps these artists don’t realise many high quality weekly formats have a bit of a staff behind them. One artist sets up frames and linearts, another fills in the colours, and another person might fill in speech bubbles and text. Much more realistic to release in one week when you only have one job! But you’d be in over your head to take that on alone.
  3. Hey welcome! I take it you fancy more light-hearted or slice of life rom-com type anime? You might check out Love Com, Netjuu Susume is also really good. If you like cute animals in the sanrio universe Aggretsuko is surprisingly relatable and seems to fit the rom-com genre pretty well. Fruits Basket is heart warming and grounded, though there are some very serious themes it explores but definitely worth giving a watch if you haven't before.
  4. Some of my favourites are rated for young audiences! Over the Garden Wall, My Little Pony, heck I watch Bluey for my own enjoyment, and that's a tv for preschoolers. Saying something is 'for kids' doesn't mean adults aren't allowed to enjoy it.
  5. It's fresh on our minds with the recent wrap up on the Fruits Basket reboot-- so, Fruba!! Yuri on Ice also has a happy ending. Are you looking for strictly romance anime with this criteria?
  6. Why do I only seem to get sick when I've made plans? 😩

  7. The badges are a fairly new addition, and everyone started at about the same point regardless of previous content count. Your first posts precede the implementation of the badges, and they weren't counted retroactively. So the badge counted for criteria met after the date it was introduced. Hope that clears it up!
  8. I watched just the first two so far, it's interesting, but I can't help but be reminded of animes like Blue Exorcist and D.Gray-Man, or maybe Fire Force. The formula is there- supernatural monstrosities are afoot and it takes a Witcher special group who may be a bit more than just human to deal with the problem. The art is very nice, though, as you said. I may stick with it a bit longer to see where it goes, but so far I haven't identified anything I found particularly remarkable.
  9. I've been on the hunt for this little dude for ages and today I finally found one! The stats aren't the best but I can't complain (he's only one defense point away from 3 stars anyway.) Can't wait to turn him into a blue Sylveon!
  10. I have a super long post in the works ugh. But in the meantime I wanted to mention this silly thing. Can't remember if it was added in the anime and I can't be bothered to check right now. But y'all need to know why Kyo was making this cute face after Tohru got out of the hospital and went to see Akito (who he believed at this moment was a man) after her and Kyo hooked up: Here it is:
  11. Isn't that basically the whole cast, too?
  12. 30 different flavours!
  13. Hey RZ, Unfortunately MAL is separate from AF and there isn't anything we can do here to help you, although I do understand your predicament. Perhaps all you can do is attempt to get ahold of a staff member over there. If they have a discord it may get you quicker results to ask through their server. Best of luck.
  14. Somewhat? We were discussing for a while what to name her and couldn't quite agree. When my daughter saw the kitten, my husband asked her "Whose that??" and she looked at the creature long and hard, and then very excitedly pointed at her and squeaked "mufvin!" (we translated that roughly to Muffin.) She sounded pretty sure of herself so we reckoned her name was in fact Muffin.
  15. It appears to be an original character. Here is the artist: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/71558883
