Hey everyone. I wanted to make a quick journal to announce some major changes that are being put into affect. These mainly have to do with my Naruto fancomics: BMTL, Forgotten, and Ramen Kiss.
I can't say I didn't see this coming. When the Naruto series was announced to be ending soon, and even a bit before that, I realized that as more things became canon in the series, the harder it would be to make a fancomic for the series. This is mainly just because of my own personality, but it just seemed kinda superfluous to try and do a speculative version of the story when all of the facts within it were already established by the canon series. Something about it, to me, just makes it feel cheap somehow. And beyond that, it almost feels kinda disrespectful to try and make a series that would change so many big details of the original story without much point. The twists I had added in didn't explore very much that was unique or different from how the original story went down. If my fancomics had more of a special angle, I would be able to see myself keeping them more easily. Unfortunately that's not the case. So, with a heavy heart, I've decided to officially announce that:NARUHINA: BMTL (BOTH THE COMIC AND THE FANFIC), NARUHINA: FORGOTTEN, NARUHINA: RAMEN KISS HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN CANCELLED.
I've put a lot of thought into this decision, and I think it will be for the best. I finally watched "The Last" Naruto movie the other day, and that's part of what cemented my feelings on this. I decided I don't really want to mess with the method that Kishimoto settled on for Naruto and Hinata to get together. Back when these series started, it was all fun speculation, and the shipping wars fueled my desire to make a case for NaruHina in the form of a romantic comic. But now that the pairing has become canon, I feel as though I should let it be, and simply rejoice in the fact that it became canon after so many naysayers tried to bring it down.
However! There IS still good news!!
If you noticed, I did not mention my next gen Naruto series, NSNN.
While the pairings have been decided by Kishimoto already, along with the designs for everyone's children, I still think the fun I would have with creating my own version of a next gen comic, and designing both the adults and children, merits continued work on that series.
Since that is the only Naruto comic series remaining, that also means i will get to start it much much sooner!
That's about all I've got for today. Thanks for reading, and I apologize for the disappointment this announcement will likely cause. However, by clearing these projects I have more room to get to the other projects that everyone's also excited about, along with some new ones! So stay tuned!
