Looking back, starting the comic without using my primary cast was not the best of ideas. I wanted the first chapter to be an introduction to the world that didn't really touch on the main story line at all. I understand that this made things rather confusing, but I can assure you that most things do get explained further along the line. It becomes blindingly obvious that Ajisai and Forget Me Not (The two characters dressed in blue) are there to explain things. They'll look after you. I've also been writing a guide to accompany the comic, this gives background details on locations, technology and other things such as the whacky metric time system. I've been working on the guide since the outset, but it hasn't been accessible on the web site as of yet. With all that being said, the comic is supposed to be fairly dream-like in its presentation; so some things just don't get explained. Hehe.
Moving swiftly on, the next chapter is already planned out and I'll be starting work on it as soon as I'm happy with the character designs. The next chapter's very different from the previous one, mainly as it follows Narcissus; the main character. I'm not quite sure what people's reactions will be to Narc, he doesn't exactly have the most endearing of personalities.
I'll be updating you at a later date regarding the new stuff, I should have some pictures to show you by then. Things haven't changed very much, naut-cotic still looks and feels very similar, so don't worry.
