I've been a bad author. 、ヽ｀(~д~*)、ヽ｀
2 years ago, I received the most amazing gift! Honey, my number 1 fan, created a coloring book featuring the characters of KARMA. However, because of my incredibly hectic schedule, there was no time for me to download all of the beautiful photos she uploaded in Facebook. (;*△*;)
And I'm a control freak, so I had to date each and every photo so I can put them in the gallery in proper order. (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ So! I'll be posting photos every Friday from now on to make it up to Honey~ (*´・ｖ・)
Let's start off with Lily! She's so pretty here, and a little sad. Maybe she's thinking about Jeremy, or her family... But she'll be ok. She'll be with them again very soon~ (´ω｀★)
And it looks like I'm somewhat done with updating kurohiko.com! (*´・ｖ・) How do you guys like it? It's not a major overhaul, but I've been wanting to change the color theme to purple for a while now. If you guys find something that's not really working, please do let me know? I'll be sure to try and fix it!

I apologize for the lack of updates lately... Google's new image host / uploader annoyed me so much that I couldn't bear to look at my ruined blogs for a long time. But I'm paying for my site name annually, so I might as well use it, no matter how pissed off I am. (；￣Д￣）
If you guys have been following me on Facebook, you've probably heard about my collaboration with Raykosen. "I Love You, P're" is a gender-bent, romantic comedy about the daughter of a chief butler, who's decided to take over her father's position. One reader pointed out that there are female butlers nowadays, so she doesn't understand why Precious Toledo had to pretend to be Preston Toledo, but well, if we did that, then there wouldn't be a story now, would there? o(*>ω<*)o
So far, the series is really fun to draw! Mainly because I get to draw so many handsome butlers, and a spunky, headstrong girl who is not as annoying as most reverse-harem heroines are! o(*≧□≦)o I'm currently in love with the butler in charge of food and kitchen, Belvedere Fernandez, but we don't really see much of him in the first half... I've also been writing "fan fiction" about him and Avery de Leon whilst annoying Raykosen to no end, but oh well, at least we got the second half done and ready for the next Komikon!
Lastly, a word of warning, I'll be updating kurohiko.com in the next few days, so expect some site changes and falling debris. ヾ(｡･ω･)ｼ Thanks everyone for continuing to support me! I'll continue to do my best for this year too!

Everyone seems to have gotten the Mystic Messenger fever… yours truly included! I’ve completed nearly 100% of all chats in my first run, so you can guess how much sleep I’ve lost in 11 days!
Honestly speaking, I didn’t like Zen in the first few days of the game. He’s such a narcissist! And I happen to know someone like him and I really, really hate him!!! But then, I somehow ended up with this character, and he began to to open up more and more. There’s a deeper reason for his narcissism, and he turned out to be quite sincere and adorable!
But what hit me the most was a phone call… somewhere on the 6th day I think. He asked if anything unfair had ever happened to me, and one of the options was about not getting the job I want. He proceeded to take my side, saying the company didn’t know my worth. And then he shared his own struggle…
When life got so hard, I just told myself I was acting.
All this struggle is only practice. It’s just like practicing in a run down studio before a big show. I comforted myself like that, and it worked.
Try thinking that when things get hard for you. Right now, you’re just back stage. Soon, the curtains will open just for you.
Alright?I literally ended up sitting there, crying at a pre-recorded message of a fictional character in love with the heroine of a game. I know that message is not for me specifically, but after struggling for an entire year, it was the perfect set of words at the perfect time. All the pressure, all the hurt, all the sadness; everything was acknowledged by a fictional character!
And just like that, I decided to start again. Nothing will happen if I just sit here, I will make my own way now… I will no longer be afraid.
I will work hard and start again. Yes, Zen, you're right. Back then, I was just practicing. Right now, I'm back stage, and soon, the curtains will rise just for me.
Thank you... I will wait patiently for that day.
