End chapter 16.
We’re going to take a break before starting chapter 17. I didn’t really TAKE a break from comic work last time, between the character Q&As (which were fun, but still time-consuming) and preparations for chapter 16, and I think that’s part of why it took so long to get chapter 16 ready. And besides getting chapter 17 scripted, now that we’ve introduced the next story thread we need to go through all three plotlines and start deciding what’s getting cut or rearranged or rewritten, so that we can make sure all the timelines work out the way they’re supposed to.
At this point we’re planning to start posting chapter 17 in April – we’ll post here to let you know when we have a solid launch date. You can follow our RSS feed, Twitter, or Tumblr for updates. If you’d like to get an email notification when we start updating again and maybe some progress updates along the way, mail us at tamurancomic (at) gmail (dot) com (or click the mailto link in the buttons at the top of the page) with the subject line “Chapter 17 Updates.” (Note that this is for notifications for Chapter 17 only and not a proper mailing list – we won’t contact you about anything else.) Our Patreon will also be on hiatus until the comic starts updating again.
In the meantime, we recommend doing a re-readthrough of the comic if you haven’t lately. And checking out some of our SpiderForest neighbors if you’d like some new comics to read.
Thanks for reading, and happy 2017!
