TFS:8 - 90% The Last One!

Finally, here we are, We've never been that close from the end ^^
The last update before the final release.

The post itself's gonna be short, as I'm falling asleep in front of my computer -_-
It's because it's you, that I'm staying that late to upload those few pics, as always, hoping you'll like them.

With this update, I can definitely tell you that the entire chapter will go over 500 pages, as I'm actually up to page 501 :-p
172 scenes have already been rendered, only 17 left...

I've started working on the last Big scene of this chapter, posing the bricks of the next one.
And believe me, I didn't know to what I would be confronted, when I wrote this 8th chapter.
Consequently, Chapter 9 is already promised to be a hell of challenge to produce >_<

Enjoy the update (as this will be the last one)

    2. possible but that will simply mean I will have to wait another year to see the final form

    3. As in her final form would be released in the chapter and not in the updates. So you only have 9% more to go. (I hope)

    4. Jesus Christ, it's astonishing how fucking entitled some of you are. This dude's making awesome porn FOR FREE, and all you can do is whine that you don't like the previews, and that it's not coming soon enough for you.

      Way too many spoiled fat fucks in geek fandom, thinking they're all grown up and cool because they complain about every fucking thing. If Shinra-kun decided to just throw in the towel because of all the whiny fucking shit poured into the comments threads, he'd be perfectly within reason.

      FWIW, I think all of these renders have looked amazing, and really show how his skills have developed. This chapter looks tremendous and I appreciate all the work Shinra puts into it.

      Now, if we can have more corruption and incest spreading among sexy teenage schoolgirls, I'll be even happier! And maybe a few non-consensual forced transformations too... but it's all up to you Shinra!

    5. Whoa, chill out, Wrongun. That's exactly the kind of response that Shinra-kun tries to avoid in his comments.

      I also thought Tethys' corruption looked underwhelming; I was kind of hoping for something more like the third pic from the 70% update. But whatever. It's ultimately up to Shinra, and I love his work and appreciate his efforts. It isn't a vast condemnation on everything, just an opinion.

      Delete
    6. You don't really believe Shinra would put something major like a full-fledged finished transformation in the teaser pics, right?

      Delete
    7. I love this Tethys.
      She looks good to me except for one thing:
      I'd prefer her eyes not all black and closer from Saga's here in picture 8.
      I think it's more expressive and sexy that way with the dark eyeliner look.

      Delete
    8. i believe Shinra made her eyes this way for a reason, possibly because it goes well with her final form. He personally said he has invested a lot of effort into Tethys and he has always been delivering so i am sure it would be good.
      (The pink demon with the same outfit as Tethys is still quite scary though)

      Delete
    9. I'm just happy the teaser pics don't reveal too much and, hopefully, the chapter will still have some unexpected twist for you.

      Now I'm not fooling myself, and know some of you will still be disappointed.
      That's the burden of the artist...he unfortunately never please everybody at the same time >_<

    10. Even though we have our dislikes and likes, there no doubt you are still good at what you do! Were not gonna stop reading just because of one dislike. :D

    11. First time poster here (but long time lurker).

      I really like the teasers and your work.

      My favorite side is the demons (because we have more male bad guys to root for like many have said).
      Because of this I'm sorry that so far the best corruption was for the monsters. I hope the black eyes isn't the trademark for the demons because I agree that it doesn't give a lot of expressions and isn't as sexy as the subtle changes of Saga.
      Too scary not sexy enough.

      It doesn't matter much because your art is awesome of course.
      Only wanted to give my feedback.

      Delete
    12. Just to offer a counterview to Anonymous, I think the best corruption by far was with the demons. Maria being No. 1 and Lisa (I think her name is) being No. 2. Carla's mother might be No. 3.

      Delete
    13. I thought carla was great, she somehow changes every chapter, but maria is still my fav tho.

      Delete
  2. Im interested to see what happened to carla

    3. "Only" 300 pages...
      SR0 was a big beast of "just" 235 pages and working on it seemed like it would never end.
      550 pages is just batshit crazy! >_<

  5. You are insanely generous Shinra ._.

    Im going to guess that chapter 9 will have a lot of custom models

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow !!! So today I got two good news: only 10% left of the chapter, and that there's going to be yet another one !!!! I don't know why I believed this was the last one. I'm so happy right now !!! I swear I'd travel half across the globe just to give you a hug !!!! :D
    Congratulations !!! You're the best !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Excellent work as usual Shinra!

    If you're worried about the next chapter being extremely long then you could divide it into two parts (or three); or alternatively you could take TV show style approach and treat Chapter 9 as a sort of show season, where you release smaller portions every couple of months that covers a single portion or multiple portions of the chapter per release, similar to what you see happen in Game of Thrones episodes.

    1. Sounds extremely boring.

      Delete
    2. Why would it be boring to release things in episode format? It would allow Shinra to release more comics and allow for some pretty interesting storytelling through the course of the entire chapter.

      I think it's better being the way it is.
      You can see the effect of publishing the comic every weeks in the metrobay series or the hipcomix which have this artificial breaks and unmoving storylines.
      The result is a loss of its inner "coherence".

      So in short, I understand why Shinra-Kun does it this way.

      Of course I'm sure it's possible that he manages to use the weekly/monthly publishing technique while producing great work but his method has its own merits and if he is comfortable with it, I don't see any reason to change.

      Delete
    4. A weekly/monthly edition would require a lot more preparation around the story, the chapter division, and all the organisation in general, to be able to keep it coherent, and above all, interesting.

      Which would mean, an even more important involvement from my side (I'm already working between 4 and 6 hours a day on those comics, despite an already very busy job) which in consequence, would lead me to make you pay for the comics ^^

      Delete
    5. I didn't mean to suggest doing things like clockwork; more that it might be easier on you to release 75-80 pages every 2-4 months instead of 500+ once a year.

      Regardless though, I wasn't trying to suggest something that would put a lot of stress on your Shinra; hobbies tend to loose their appeal when they become like jobs.

  8. Congrats on making it to 90% Shinra, amazing work! Looking forward to seeing the finished chapter. :)

  10. Looks great!!

    if i can suggestion, chapter 9 should be the last one. you dont want it to become like the comics on mccomix where they're too long. if it goes too long, it can get needlessly complicated with way too many characters

    i think you should finish this story at chapter 9 and then move on to finish wizard

    1. Shinra has stated before that there is an end planned and I believe written and that the series is supposed to roughly have 11 chapters

      Delete
    2. To Naptragichen's point, I don't have the intention to extend Fallen Star over and over like at MCComix.

      Even If I like to produce full fledged stories, which takes their time to develop the universe of their characters, I also know that a good ending is better than none ^^

      What I don't want on the other hand, is a rushed ending, because I want to switch to another story, like we see in too many tv shows nowadays.

      So yes, the end as already been written and should come around chapter 10 or 11. There are still a few things to explain, a few character to corrupt, and people would kill me if had to pull the curtain too fast ^^

      So in summary, don't worry, we are definitely closer to the end than the beginning...

      Delete
  17. What a another great update!! It is great to see that heaven has caught on to what is going on around them. Now we will hopefully start to see an all out war between the two. I'm really liking Carla's new look.

    As to comment some other thoughts that have been posted already, I definitely don't think we've seen the new and improved evil version of Tethys. I agree with mpgrey in that Shinra wouldn't spoil the true form in one of these previews. As for her and the pink demons clothing, it is similar but they each are a different color/ texture which leaves me to believe they are two different people but maybe they will have some sort of intertwined fate...

    As always Shinra, keep up the GREAT work. I'm always willing to be patient if that means that will improve quality. I look forward to the release in the coming weeks or months!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sounds very promising, Shinra, keep up the amazing work! I'm also very curious to discover the plot between Demons and Monsters, for instance the confrontation between Lumen/Saga/Arachnea and Tethys/Carla/Starlight...

    ReplyDelete
  19. After this update Carla has to be the new fav, keep up the excellent work your almost there!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You can definitely give us a guess or estimate of how much time you have left at this point, I mean, its 9%, not much left. Im sure if you're a few days off people can handle it.

    1. You'd be surprised, people can go nuts if estimated completion times are missed; better to keep it a general, "sometime this month"

    2. The last 9% would take just as long as any update. So the best estimate would be at the end of august. We are all excited, so some of us actually go crazy.

  22. Shinra-kun, I first have to say that I'm a huge fan of your works, and with the recent lack of quality corruption content, you are one of the few (if not the only) artists whose work I still look forward to. That being said, one thing that somewhat irks me is the time difference between release dates.

    Chapter 1: Balance (2012-04-02)
    Chapter 2: Metamorphosis (2012-05-01)
    Chapter 3: Inferno (2012-05-30)
    Chapter 4: Sabbath (2012-07-12)
    Chapter 5: Sisters of the Dark (2012-09-22)
    Chapter 6: Guardians (2012-12-29)
    Yoru No Majin (2013-04-08)
    Harriet Cooper (2013-06-21)
    Chapter 7: The LightBearer (2013-09-08)

    Differences between release dates:
    Ch. 1 and 2: 29 days
    Ch. 2 and 3: 29 days
    Ch. 3 and 4: 44 days
    Ch. 4 and 5: 72 days
    Ch. 5 and 6: 98 days
    Ch. 6 and 7: 253 days (100 + 74 + 79 if counting the non Fallen Star releases)
    Ch. 7 and 8: currently 326 days and counting

    At this rate, while chapter 8 should be released soon (in about a month or two), chapter 9 (or whatever shinra-kun's next release is) will take anywhere between a year or two, and that's a long time to wait. :[

    Is there anything you plan on doing that might help and make it easier for us?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. One of the main reasons for the increase in time between the releases is that the releases have got bigger. Chapter I was only 70 pages, whereas Chapter VII had 300.

      Delete
    2. And now we have 550 pages for Chapter 8. We are not paying for this, he is doing it for us. As much as i like it to be faster too, we are not paying for his service so we have no right to ask him to deliver on demand

      Delete
    3. No offence taken, I'll try to explain you, and all the other fans which have been (im)patiently waiting for, I agree, a very long time.

      The following answer is by no mean full of frustration. But I really hope that after this, people finally understand the extend and the involvement put into those comics.

      All the figures above are correct, however, let's have a closer look at the number of pages delivered for each project...

      TFS Chapter 1 - 70 Pages I don't really remember when I started on this one, so we can't really make any assumption...

      TFS Chapter 2 - 80 pages - 29 days - 2.7 pages/day
      TFS Chapter 3 - 105 pages - 29 days - 3.6 pages/day
      TFS Chapter 4 - 119 pages - 44 days - 2.7 pages/day
      TFS Chapter 5 - 146 pages - 72 days - 2.0 pages/day
      TFS Chapter 6 - 262 pages - 98 days - 2.7 pages/day
      YORU Chapter 1 - 116 pages - 100 days - 1.2 pages/day
      HARRIET Chapter 1 - 75 pages - 74 days - 1 page/day
      TFS Chapter 7 - 300 pages - 79 days - 3.8 pages/day
      LEGION Chapter 1 - 87 pages - 61 days - 1.4 pages/day

      TFS Chapter 8 - 550 pages - 297 days (if released at the end of the month 31/08/2014) - 1.9 pages/day

      What can we get out of this...that statistically talking, and except on non fallen Fallen Star project, where it's true I've been much slower, I've been pretty much consistent in terms of velocity. The most important factor extending the time between releases being, of course, the number of pages per release.

      On top of that, you have to take into account the quality of the comic itself, where for the first chapters rendering one pic was taking only a few minutes, rendering a single picture takes now minimum 30 minutes. And again I'm only talking about the rendering time, which is just the time for the computer to "produce" the picture, add to this creating the character, outfit, hairs, creating the environment for each scene, posing the character, giving them expressions, shading every textures, rigging static object if you want to move them, writing the story, writing the storyboard, post-work, formatting, text bubbles, special effect, edition, taking care of the blog,...

      Trust me, if I tell you 1h to produce one picture, we're still far from the reality, but let's take 1h to make it easy. The chapter has approximatively 1450 pics and I still have +-120 pics to render to finish it. So more or less 1500 pics multiplied by 1h....1500h of work put in this single chapter.

      Let's get back to our figures, if I deliver at the end of August, I will have worked 297 days on this chapter. 1500 divided by 297 ... 5h a day...7 days a week. Next to that, and I would not want to sound arrogant, I have a job with a lot of responsibilities, for which I have to travel quite often, very demanding, which also means that I'm rarely home before 9-10pm. Like most of you, I also have a family, which I love to spend time with. 10pm is usually the time when my night start, yes I start working when people go to bed, remember I still have 5h to find if I ever want to maintain the "pace"...
      Now that I think about it, yes it's what my life has been for the last 297 days, working every single day from 10pm to 2am on those bloody comics.

      But let's face it, the answer to this problem is easy...
      I will definitely change my way of working for next chapter/comics, but I'll touch based on this when this 8th chapter has been release.

      Again, I'm not angry at people asking about the release, but I just want people to fully understand what it takes to create such artwork ^^

    4. Plus, if you had to pay for it, you would complain for the opposite reason ahaha, because I'm releasing chapter too often to supposedly make more money ;-P

    5. Do you actually get enough sleep?

    6. Hey Shinra-Kun. I've always anticipated your releases, but I've never complained about however much time it takes, because I know it takes as long as it takes and that's that. However, reading that statistical explanation of yours, I feel really bad expecting anything.

      Is there some way we can help you out? I don't know if 30 minutes to render a picture is long, average, or short. I know there are cloud computing rendering services, right? They cost money, but maybe all us readers could chip in to help speed that process along. More than that, maybe you could get your readers' computers to help out with the rendering. I know I personally wouldn't mind devoting my GPU to helping render some pictures via the cloud.

      Delete
    7. Don't worry Cold Snap, I was not complaining about people who complains ^^
      Just trying to explain why it takes so long to produce pics.
      The only way for you to get yours hands on chapter faster, is if I start doing smaller chapter.

      30 minutes for the rendering bit is not bad for the quality I can get out out it. Some renders can take over 2h,4h,8h depending on the quality of the picture and the 3D engine you use. There's no real limit, Some engines like Octane or Reality3D actually keep on refining your pictures over and over till you manually stop them ^^

      The resources cannot really be shared unfortunately, as it's not just about the CPU. For a computer to render a picture, it needs to have the 3D engines installed on it and have access to all the 3D models present in your scene >_<

      Delete
    8. OP here. I wanted to first get across the point that I absolutely meant no disrespect towards Shinra, and I understand that he's doing this stuff on his own time and I'm aware of how time-consuming it could be.

      I'm not concerned about the rate at which Shinra is making pages. As he has shown himself, it's been pretty steady and he's been doing plenty of work this whole time.

      What I'm referring to, however, is the rate of release. Think of it like food. If instead of eating 3 average-sized meals a day, you ate one giant meal a day, that wouldn't be healthy. Because of the lack of contributions in the corruption community (if such a thing exists), I would rather see releases about once every 1-3 or even 4 months. I was simply wondering if Shinra had any plans to release more often, not necessarily increase his work rate.

      Delete
    9. To be honest, I don't have any plan yet.
      I'm investigating some possible solutions, but as I said, I'll touch base on this after the release, so that I don't get distracted from the current short term goal ^^

    4. Yeah...no.
      I've been fooled once by Mccomix but the stories are boring with very little sex and characters are never really corrupted.
      I like to see the bad guy truly make the heroine his in soul and body.
      It never really happens in those comics.

    5. My women will be corrupted, and corrupt others, and there'll be no going back to normal for them. If you do resubscribe to MCComix, please tell the Forum it's because of Son of Dracula, so they'll get a clue. Thanks all.

      Delete
    6. There will always be the problem of artists wanting to keep their own characters around in future stories, which is likely the biggest reason for all the resets at the end of the stories.
      You can (thankfully) be different because your characters are specifically designed for their one particular story only.

      That said, I don't know what the pool of stories on MCComix currently is and what has all been moved to Metrobay, but it's unlikely there will ever be many, if any, permanent corruptions on the latter site, no matter how much fans may rally for different endings.

    13. Just FYI on the MCComix site - the three series for "The Division" by Ozobono, Tabico, and Northern Chill all involve permanent (yes I said permanent) corruption, droning, etc. Excellent series. Many are in the free section.

    14. I generally love Tabico's writing, but really found the division disappointing, yes there is permanent mind control/changes but really not that different from Metrobay stuff, robots and dolls...ho-hum...

  32. 1) Not really. There's one massive scene which I'm working on currently, and by massive, I mean very complex and heavy to render. But in reality, it's 17 different scenes which still remains to be rendered.

    2) Yes and No...You'll see her transformed, but it might not be her final form...
    Or if you really pay attention while reading the chapter, you'll see her complete metamorphose. Confused? ...that was my intention ;-P

    3) On this one, I don't know what you're talking about?? Where did you see Kimy and Lilith next to each other as different person??

    1. I just hope those teasers aren't her final form for this chapter.

      Delete
    2. Shinra would not release such an important characters transformation in the teasers. Its safe to say she would be more corrupted for the chapters to come. Judging by her eyes and bow, she should be something lizard related, dragon maybe?

      Delete
    3. Are these 17 scenes heavily rendered? Or just this particular one and the rest to come are normal scenes

      Delete
    4. The big scene is made of those 17 smaller ones, but it first need to be prepared. Meaning, create all the scenery, and above all, deploy all the characters >_<

      Delete
    5. So is it correct to say once the scenery is done all there is left is just to change the posture and position of the characters?

    6. I wish it was that simple >_<
      Unfortunately, it's much more complicated than just moving a few arms and legs, and put some smile on their faces...

  35. Just another guy8 August 2014 at 23:43

    I agree with both.
    Karin I don't know much about who were her friends, if she fancied someone (human or angel), so I'll guess we'll see?
    Might be fun to see her creating her own Demon lover from an innocent victim ^_^

    Tethys I hope we still regognize her. I think the same haircut, same color of hair but maybe longer until it reaches the ass is the perfect choice.

    But I like the look of Tethys right now in fact. She still looks like herself but with some sexy and that's what I want.
    What I wish to know is who is the demon who's gonna get her and corrupt her!

    .5% precision now? I bet Shinra-kun is just randomly typing numbers. Next he'll probably put 92.73% or something...

    Anyway, thank you for making these wonderful comics available for free. I'll just have to wait a little longer. (Please make more Harriet Cooper as well.)

  38. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with the girl stuck in the webs with the pink hair and the possibility of some corruption of some new minor characters like at the police shop and the corrupted girl returning to the store.

    What stands out for Shinras comics is the build up in story which makes the corruption all the more enjoyable.

  40. Btw, which generation models are you using? Have you made the switch to genesis figures or are you still using 4th gen?

    1. It depens actually.
      I'm slowly shifting all my male models from M4 to genesis and genesis 2,
      but as for female models, most of them are still 4th generation, not that I don't like genesis, but there's still a lot of morphs I've created which I can't reproduce so far on genesis.

      Delete
    2. True. I really like the new vein morph on Daz that was recently released. I haven't had a chance to mess around with it but the previous generations really only had vascularity for males. The clothing morphs seem to be generally more dynamic but I'm just a hobbyist :)

      Delete
    3. Yes, the new veins which have just been released looks really good because they're HD, I already have a few other models, but those ones looks better, so I need to buy them.
      The displacement map that you create yourself are way better tho' and that's why I'm also using this a lot.

      Clothes for genesis are not usually better or more dynamic, it's just that with genesis, there's the auto fit plugin that fit anything on your figure, so yes, that's why I like them as well ;-)

  47. I have a suggestion for how the ending would go. Say all of heaven is corrupted and it seems like Armageddon can now happen at anytime without any interference. There's just one problem. There's not enough evil and fighting between countries at that moment in time for armageddon to happen. The last time the devil thought the perfect time to do that was during World War 2, when he was stopped. Ever since that war ended, there hasn't been enough reason to unleash armageddon onto the world. Because of that, the earth is safe for now. At least until there is another world war. In the meantime, the devil and the fallen star can continue building up their ranks for the impending doom that is to come when the time is right again. You could say it's a copout ending, but it would make sense considering all that's happened. Hope you like the idea I have for the ending of the whole series. Unless you have something better in mind.

  50. In the last chapter there was a scene where two angels were having sex with someone watching but nothing seemed to happen as a result or anything happen from it. Was it supposed to lead to something in the chapter or will it play a role in this chapter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, the one watching was Leto (or at least I think that was her name) and the last we saw her Arachnea's spider was approaching her, so I think it's a safe bet to assume it will lead to something (awesome) in the future.
      Whether it's this chapter or the one after, we'll see when this chapter is released.

      Delete
    2. The story from Leto's point of view will definitely lead to something.
      This something will start being shaped in this chapter, to fully take place in the next one. Let's if I can still surprise you with the story ;-)

      Delete
    3. how many chapters are there going to be total? since you mention "the next one"

      i think 9 would be a good place to stop personally. u dont want the story to get too long and convoluted like those mccomix stories.

      Delete
    4. He stated before that the Fallen Star saga will have 11chapters. That means Shinra has still lot of things to say in his story before the end.

      Delete
    5. yes, I'm pretty sure I've already answer your comment about the length of the story at least once. So again, the ending of this serie has already been planned...we'll have around 10-11 chapters...no more, no less!

      Some artist use and abuse of their universe till nobody is interested anymore, addind fillers, new arcs over and over. This, is not my plan.

      I would hate to have to end the serie, with a quick and dirty ending, just because I want to switch to some other project. The only reason I see that could make me end the serie now, is if the fans were not interested anymore. This saga has a starting point and a destination. There's still some part to tell and now is not the time to end this story ^^

      Delete
    6. Hello Shinra
      Firstly, I want to say that you make a great work and that for several years. Not lot of people keep their motivation in project, especially if it's long.
      Secondly, I would like to start up again with the Leto's story you told just in the comments above.
      One of my favorite scene is in the chapter 6 when Leto must masturbate to "cure" a guy. At this moment, Miss T have an other vision.
      We have already seen that the visions of Miss T have really happened and my question (hope !) is if the scene where Leto is raped by a monster and the guy could be really happened ? Maybe a trouble like this could happened for the corruption of Leto ?

      Delete
    7. I'd prefer if Leto is corrupted by a specific character, a male character ideally. Maybe the guy she tried to cure? The guy she seems to have a crush on?
      Or she can be corrupted to then corrupt him so that he becomes her mate I don't know.
      The point is there is so many characters with various relationships it would be great if it plays a role in the corruption.
      If bonds are created while other are twisted.

    2. From earlier releases, I think the last 5% is title work, final edits and presentation stuff. I think all the rendering is done by that point so we are looking at another 3% of renders to go.

  67. This is to G9: I understand that it might be difficult to face constant criticism from some in your blog for your work. However, rather than making your faithful fans confused, anxious, disappointed, irritated and even frustrated at your decision to make your blog private, wouldn't it be wiser to just ignore the harassment? I think that would perhaps be the epitome of courage in the virtual world where criticism is ubiquitous. Moreover, I think the constant strive for improvements in your work is commendable but I refer to a comment from one of your fans during the SR0 period where he asserted that you were a perfectionist and that it is more of a bane as it delays the release while perhaps not adding too much to the end result. You agreed with that and say that you would try your best to improve on that aspect but I feel that in this short story you are making the same mistake once again and perhaps that is what that is drawing all the harassment? Furthermore, shouldn't a short story have less aspects to improve upon compared to a huge one like SR0 where the perpetual delays would annoy everybody? Food for thought...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Food for thought indeed, and everything you say makes perfect sense.
      However, the reason for closing the blog temporarily has nothing to do with harassment.
      It is somewhat of a private matter and that's the reason why I don't want to be specific about the exact reason.

      The unfortunate result of being so vague is that it allows for anyone to come up with wild theories and point fingers in the wrong direction.

      So trust me, there hasn't been any unwanted criticism and the temporary closing is not a cowardly move caused by one or more fans.
      Please bear with us...

      As for your argument about delays being unnecessary because they lead to just minor improvements, please realize that what we (try to) make are comics first and, well, "fap material" second. Our goal is not to get the juicy pages online as soon as possible to please the fans; our goal is to make comics that are, from start to finish, as good as we can make them.
      A good comic with a heavy dose of erotic fetishes, and not a collection of fetish scenes with a bit of story.

    2. Coincidentally, Shinra seems to have disappeared the same time as g9 blog went private. With only 6% left and the upcoming FFX comic, its all so close yet so far

    3. Who the fuck cares? The newer Dinaranger are coming out soon. And it seems like they will be faster than this chapter of Shinra's story. And following that thought I already got the hints that the heroes I care about won't get the spotlight this time so there is absolutely no need for me to even wait for it.

      Eventually everybody will burn out because of the long wait. It isn't like I am trying to be a dick about it, I just don't sugarcoat my opinions like the rest of people here. Such situations would have never been a thing if Shinra or you, respectively, simply said he is busy with something in real life.

      Just please don't play the "you can't please everybody" card because it got old the first time. All I want is not to be left in the dark.

    5. For the first time I have to say something to all the people who don't know the meaning of patience. Chill out. If the wait is too long for you then don't wait at all, just give up and do something else.
      To the anonymous up above, first of all you don't have to be so negative and second so what? I sure as hell won't "burn out" in the wait. Shinra and G9 both have REAL LIFES and FAMILIES and they are taking time for us from THEIR FREE TIME to make these comics for FREE. The one major thing I like about both Shinra and G9 (and you mpgrey) is that they communicate with their fans so they know almost everything about the comics. None of us aren't left in the dark.
      Also just because the progress bar isn't moving doesn't mean that shinra isn't working on this latest chapter. Maybe he is done rendering, or maybe he is checking spelling, or maybe he is uploading it even now on e hentai. So don't be surprised if tomorrow, or the day after that he posts on his blog it's done and it's online already. I have been following both G9 and shinra ever since the two of them were on the same blog and that was way before the little "Timmy" incident and I know that even when they are "quiet" they are working on their comics.
      So I'm sorry to everybody with little patience left. I didn't mean to offend you but guys and gals chill out. It WILL come out. Shinra, G9 and mpgrey congratulations for all that you did for this genre and us the fans of this genre. And thank you for pouring your time, heart and soul into making these comics for free.
      This is one fan in majority-(hopefully) that eagerly awaits the release of new comics whenever they come out.

      Delete
    6. And how long have you needed to wait for the next Dinaranger?

      You appear to fail to really grasp how much time it takes to make these comics with the quality you're used to.
      These people (Shinra, G9, Macxes) are working alone. If you want your regular fix, sign up to a website such as Mccomix or Metrobay where there are multiple artists working on multiple comics to enable a constant stream of new pages.
      Do you really need us to remind you every once in a while that we are "busy with something in real life"? I mean, is that such an eye-opener for you?
      Other people here aren't simply sugarcoating their opinions; instead they mostly do realize that they're waiting for one person to spend his precious spare time in a comic, a comic that only costs money to make and won't get them a single penny in return. Not only now, but for a few years already. Not many people can keep that up, you know.

      Want to know the reason behind Shinra's silence? It's because he has been traveling for work again and hardly had access to internet. You think he is letting everybody wait on purpose, just to get a good laugh or something? He is just one guy, one very busy guy, who tries his utmost to give you your comics as soon as possible.
      So it's only natural that you're being left in the dark occasionally. After all, can you plan your entire life months in advance? No? Well he can't either.

    9. Unless you are paying for this, you can only be unreasonably impatient about this. Shinra does not owe us a living and yes i'm also quite sick of waiting but hes doing us a favor and for free, so what right do i have if he delays his comics. How many comics has it been already, just live your life do your own stuff like Shinra does his, time flies and the comic will be up before you even know it

    10. mpgrey, do you know when Shinra would be back? For all we know the comic might already have been done while Shinra renders it during his trip, he just needs internet to upload it.

  69. I agree! Shit happens, it's not their fault. They don't get paid for this stuff you know. MCComix and all that stuff is MONTHLY PAYMENT and their comics are absolute dogshit that go on too long and they always end the same way. Shinra and G9's are FREE and BETTER.

    On that note, mpgrey, do you think FFX will be posted to e-hentai even while the blog is down? Like I said, delays happen but I think just getting that out would make everyone happier.

    Oh, and to the guy who mentioned Dinarangers: where did you see that it's finally coming out again?

    1. I do think that FFX will be posted the very moment it's ready. Sure it would be better if the blog is accessible at that time, but I don't think we should purposely wait for that moment before releasing it.
      That said, I'm still waiting for G9 to get the updated version ready. After that, it shouldn't take long to do the final editing (=fixing the text).
