    Comic: Toki no Tanaka

    I've been running this webcomic called Toki no Tanaka for a few months now, so I figured I'd show it to you guys here. See what it's all about by visiting the site at http://www.tokinotanaka.com/, but in brief, it's a an episodic humourous affair that follows the lives of the titular Tanaka family in the fictional Japanese town of Yakushi. Also, expect an awful lot of Nintendo jokes (and maybe even other Japanese video games and pop culture, as well).

    It's only on page 11 (which is hot off the presses as of last night), so it shouldn't be too difficult for anyone to catch up, either. Please, check it out and tell me what you think.

    It updates every Tuesday, by the way.

    Page 12, anyone? I mean, it's still Tuesday somewhere in the world, right?

    This is still alive, it just got delayed by various things, as the freshly posted page 13 will testify.

    And here is page 15. Blame the software crashing/panel-erasing incident I suffered last night for its slight lateness.

    But still, a Japanese title for an English-language anything always bugs me. Maybe I'm just a pedantic weeb hunter, I don't know.

    Re: Comic: Toki no Tanaka

    As for the Japanese name, I think it does a decent job of communicating what the comic's about (what with the Japanese setting and all); and I couldn't think of a good English name that fit, besides. I also like how it sounds to say as well (with the alliteration), but maybe that's just me.

    Thanks! It's comments like that that make it all worthwhile.

    You all may be glad to know that I finished everything that I needed to get done and page 16 is now officially underway.

    They're last name is Tanaka. Toki is a Japanese Nintendo game, and a city in Japan.

    Damn, I haven't posted here in a long time. I figure I might as well resurrect this old thread rather than start a new one for the same thing, though. And it's worthwhile because I have new stuff to show, too! In my absence from these parts I've been busy getting the comic back up and running and now it's as healthy as ever. Here's all the new pages you may have missed while I wasn't posting:

    Page 18

    Page 20

    Page 30, we've reached the end!

    Well, not really the end, because there'll be an episode 2 before long. Check out the author comments under the comic for the details on all of that.

    Episode 2 has begun! Here's the first page.

    There's a Patreon campaign running for the comic now, too! I'd be much obliged if you'd at least check it out.
