Temple of the Morning Wood (May Update)
From now on there will be one update to this comic per month.
As usual I would have liked to have more pages completed, but April was a busy month, and at least there's some clarifying dialogue in these.
We're approaching the sexiest and the weird(est) parts of the chapter soon, but I think next month will still be mostly a bunch of talking. I'm trying to tell the story efficiently so it doesn't drag (especially in terms of dialogue) but still allow for little character moments and important plot developments to take the space they need, and there's only so much compressing that can be done without losing a sense of immersion in a story.
Quite some time ago I watched some episodes of Turn A Gundam (because Loran Cehack is so fucking sexy holy shit) and from what I remember it kept skipping ahead too much for me. You never got the opportunity to feel involved with the characters, because after something big happened to them the story didn't bother to show them adjust to it, it just jumped to the future and threw the next thing at them. So that's something I want to avoid. There will be calm after the storm.
Then again, I'm the kind of person who fast forwards through the fights in mecha anime so I can get to the cute characters interacting instead, so maybe they're not for me, haha.
