☆DL7, Shin Tenipuri, and New Beginnings☆  
Me and my (former) coworkers..

Former.. it still feels a little bit weird to say that. I didn't tell many people, but I quit working for Konomi-sensei at the end of January! Really, there were a few factors, but the main thing is that I felt that it was time to move on, and work on my own manga! I want to debut so badly and have millions of people around the world love my work too =^-^= I discussed it with Sensei before I quit, and as he really wants to see me move on to having my own name in print too, he let me go. It was hard on me emotionally, though, since he is like family to me. So were my coworkers too. <3

I still talk to them on occasion, and I was regaled with tales of how hard it's been since I left (lol.. oh man, sorry guys! I feel really guilty about that..) a few weeks ago. But I am really glad, and I feel like I'm finally ready to take the next step!!

So, Sensei insisted on having a going-away party for me, but because they've been so busy, it was put off until Dream Live!! LOL, it must be the latest going-away party ever?? Four months late... but it was a really, really good day.. More,Collapse )

So, here is to the future!!!!!!!! Hashiteikimasu!!

had a feeling you had moved on... it`s a conflicted emotion, but you`ll eventually grow past it...
and I and many others will keep following you... just to see where you go.

Wow, that's a jam-packed entry, no two ways about it! I wish you all the best in this next step... you'll definitely accomplish your goals, so just stay positive and have fun! Reading your journal always gives me a little extra motivation, too, so thanks for sharing! I'm looking forward to seeing your original illustrations in print. :D

I wish I could do half the things you did....
I wish I had some will power to do what you did also I am kinda in a funk with my grandmother in the hospital and I think she is dead I don't want to believe it if she is dead for I've never really had a family member that I was close to die ever. I mean with this going on and problems back at home(the States) I'm in a funk also I'd like to visit Tokyo someday and if so maybe hang out if you or I have time that is I am going to try really hard in going down or up there for Jump Fest. this year. Knock on wood.

Heh, he is pretty good looking guy, definitely wouldn't expect him to be a big otaku mangaka!

Best of luck with your own manga! I hope to see it in print someday! I also LOVE all the Ribon-type manga. =)

Aww, I really admire you! I would have never been able to leave the TeniPuri staff XD Well, take into account that I am a hard core fan LOL

I wish you the best of lucks in this incredible journey you're starting. I'm still too little to even have a big dream like yours, so you're my inspiration to accomplish my goals!! I'll make sure to follow your LJ as much as school allows it!
