Did we have some sort of hint on what season it was before the time skip? Because they mentioned it's autumn, I'd be curious to figure out approximately how many months passed by (=・ω・=)
I am sure it was almost the end of summer. The last time we saw the outside, it wasn't obviously winter, and if it was spring there would be a lot of festivals and knowing Aki, he would have participate with Asami, so the end of Summer is what I thing is the most logical season.
Probably summer - Aki out in just underwear, Asami in a t-shirt ...
Hello! This is Yamane Ayano. Thank you very much for purchasing "You're My Secret Promise in Viewfinder". A new volume after two and a half years... did you all enjoy it? This time it took longer than usual to release the volume for the tseries and I apologize for making you all wait. Even though I previously said I would try harder, due to my health problems, I wasn't able to draw much, and ended up causing tremendous problems for the editor and the printing office instead... However, this new release has given me some relief. I was not aware of how poor my drawing skills were until I began doing the revisions, so I redrew quite a few of them, just like I usually do with every volume. Please try not to compare them with my old work in the magazine T.TThis volume doesn't have many love scenes since the story is progressing, and I apologize for that. I have to keep my patience as well when this happens. The cutesy and juicy scenes I wanted to draw were replaced by bloody battles instead. Akihito's weakened spirit and Sudou's touchiness irritated me, so I put effort into drawing Akihito's butt crack which can be seen during the catfight (being rubbed) and the gunfight scenes in the latter half of the book. I had spoken to my editor about my desire to draw Akihito and Asami escaping through the secret passage in the apartment after being cornered, and my wish partially came true! My highlight was Kirishima in pajamas... ^^ With the scene where Akihito was hanging from a crane, I felt a little violence fit the situation. The uke hung up like a sandbag... Such manly manliness (I'll shut up now...)These days, the rules and regulations on explicit artwork has become stricter, so the private regions have been left undrawn... It's really a shame >.< There might be audiences who are okay with censorship of the genitals as long as the two men are in love, but I prefer to have a mind-blowing, vividly rich erotic love scene ^.^... I want Asami and Akihito to keep having a thrilling type of "chase or be chased" relationship, even in bed <3.15 years have passed by without me realizing it until someone told me, and it's kind of scary if I think about it, but this is a long series that moves at a rather slow pace; however, this is the speed at which I draw, so what I can do is to make sure I work as hard as I can. To those who look forward to my work, I am very sorry. It would be lovely if you could all support Akihito and not let him fall down the rabbit hole, and support Asami, who has enemies who both love and hate him. And the character you have been waiting to see again might appear in the story!Lastly, for the longtime fans of the Viewfinder series, new readers of the story, the letters, presents, and cheerful tweets: I always get such encouragement from all of you when I need it. This series would not have lasted this long without you. Thank you so much!The editors and editorial department that work together with my slow drawing hand and who come up with various plans and ideas to make the story more appealing, the god-like skilled artisan who brings the beautiful colors, the printing office and agency that keeps their doors open until the last second, and the book stores - I appreciate all the people involved in publishing. I will try hard to make the future stories more entertaining, so I ask you to continue to support me!February 29, 2016 Yamane Ayano
I will forever support you sensei!!! Keep up the good work you've always been doing:) love ya
Thanks for posting this. She is adorable! You have to love someone who works hard on butt cracks.
thank you for re-posting, seeing her note made me all giddy inside (๑•ㅂ•)و✧
I'm so glad that another chapter has come out! I love the direction that the plot is facing. I'm looking forward to the character development of Akihito and how he's now chasing Asami. I'm imagining a BAMF Akihito when they meet up again, because then they will be on even grounds (in some sense).(づ￣ ³￣)づ
Damn I love this woman so much (づ￣ ³￣)づ
I love you sensei and I will forever support you. Thanks
Sensei, I'm a big fan of yours and your artwork. I really want to buy your works. Unfortunately, it's not available in my country, and my parents would kill me if they find out. I hope you get better soon.
Thanks for posting. Interesting how she doesn't like the censorship either.
先生 おつかれさま l love your manga sense even if i new in yaoi things I'm enjoying and get happy +embarrassed, the anime i watched and replay it many times. I want you to be healthy please eat more vegetables, fruits and meat, don't eat junk food please, no alcohol/please replaced with fruits juice and drink more water. you will be very healthy ready to do anything.ありがとうございました
I love asami and Akihito, but the manga would be even more beautiful if you stop drawing rapes
Hmm, I guess that's subjective then… (￣∇￣") I like de mens picking on poor Akihito's bottom, the more the merrier!……………………..eheh
(≧∀≦) Tastes are tastes, you know. I would like to see other ukes 'molested' in the story, not only the hot Aki. But if they will be separated for some chapters what characters Sensei will use to give us our dose of sex?? (⊙…⊙ )
Yeah I must admit this twist took me completely by surprise - so I guess anything can happen! Uke's (hell, maybe Seme's too) watch your behinds!!!!!! 0_0
(≧∀≦) I mean, if Sudou is telling everything to Asami's enemies, did he become Mik or Sakazaki sexual slave? I'm so curious about it. (⊙…⊙ )
Well there was that question "Is this what you do with someone, to get them spilling very secret…" (can't remember the quote exactly) but maybe Sakazaki has got that* arrangement with Sudoh?? But TBH I'm not sure if they'll be any real action with anyone else surely, maybe a loooong Akihito self-love shower scene though while he's missing Asami? (▰˘◡˘▰)
Only Aki and his hand it's sad, Rommy, (≧∀≦). I would like to see others in action (Sudou, Mik, Sakazaki, Fei , and so -but, please, not Tao- even if by this moment, I guess, he's about 15 years old) (≧∀≦)(≧∀≦)
OMG! Sorry for my wrong voted i press at the wrong place and i can't change my voted
I'm being random right here, but I'm curious, has this happened to anyone here? xDI woke up last night, and because I somehow managed to sleep on it without waking up (probably from sleepwalking, I always turn off my alarm clock in my sleep which is quite a pain, and I'm an excessively deep sleeper lol) and my left arm was DEAD ASLEEP. It was all wobbly, I didn't sense it when I touched it and I couldn't move it at all. Literally paralyzed, as I basically pressured its nerves so my brain thought I just lost it or something lol. Thankfully, that only lasted about a minute, but I sure was scared xD.One of the most freakyish experiences I've ever had. Makes you appreciate having two arms and having a fully working body!
I have had that, unfortunately it was Carpal Tunnel Syndrome though, and I had to go through three surgeries to release the pressure on my nerves. (Imagine having that feeling coming and going day and night for months - but worse at night) Glad you are okay, you probably pinched the nerve a bit while sleeping.
Ouch, sure sucks :(. At least it's totally fixed now? I freaked out because I had no idea that this could happen aha. I thought that maybe I actually managed to kill it (lol) but then it started to slowly come back. But it ended up being more silly and an interesting experience than anything lol.I should really start to take an interest in medicine or something, I didn't even know about stretch marks until I got them recently from quick weight gain. Like what the hell. Can't I learn about those things before I get it? What about when I'll get something much more serious?I'm starting to get a bit paranoid each time something like that, totally unexpected happens lol. Why's school not keeping up with the new realities... We're past the point where learning the names of rock types is of most significance ._.
It's mostly fixed - I still have numb episodes, but not on the same scale.I find that experience is a greater teacher than just reading about it. But we need a wide base of basic knowledge to help understand new things, so learning the names of rocks and such is never a waste of time, who knows when you will need it.
Mmmh, maybe. But being a visual learner, school hasn't done much for my basic knowledge. I had to study-dump all the time because I wasted so much time in class and had to study everything myself at home, but there is only so much time in a day after the whole "sit in class and try to listen". Lectures are a waste on me, I think in pictures, and unless it's practical/actually interesting my brain just dishes it out as soon as it gets the chance.Of course, I don't know the names of the types of rocks. I only know I studied it at one point, as it is with most of my high school years xD. And I got extremely good grades, only thanks to my last minute studying skills.I got 95% in my last history class. I don't even know the years the two world wars started. I just figured out what the teacher wanted me to throw at his tests and memorized all of it only hours before by reading and reciting my notes in a certain order. Basically I recalled where on my sheet note I put each concepts and was able to see what I should write that way. And even then, I had trouble sometimes, especially for naming things, as well I have to translate my "pictures" in "words", I don't think firstly in words, so if it's something that wasn't on my sheet...It's good for auditory-sequential learners. My boyfriend is basically an encyclopedia on two legs when it comes to random science anatomy etc. facts as he just remembers everything he hears basically. He was my saving grace in my last school years actually, as after each lectures I was like "so, how do I do that? 8)". Even when I actually listened...But for others... An utter waste of time.
The worst is that they all have the same setting. How am I supposed to remember anything when I have no way of figuring out a visual difference, as a 100% visual-spatial learner is beyond me. I'd remember better if the walls changed colors each class. I could be like "oh, I remember that was when the class was red that we saw that, and that as well, so they're related" etc. LOL.The struggle :P
That moment on a test, when you remember where on a page a piece of info was, but not WHAT it is :'D (╯°Д °)╯╧╧
Actually, memorizing the strokes' order is tedious though there are rules and guidelines which govern this. This is totally optional though; I even doubt that Japanese language learners memorize them anyhow (=・ω・=), except for students who majored or are majoring in Japanese language study. I am glad that you can learn from videos; they're definitely going to be inserted into my curriculum in the future. I believe that looking up a character by its radical is handier than doing it by the SKIP method. As an utter beginner, I've totally relied on the SKIP method. It is very useful when you're looking at a scanned page and part of the kanji character is undecipherable; not to mention the blurriness of the furigana characters. In spite of that, I always manage to find the kanji in question, some way or the other, thanks to the SKIP method. However, this is going to be in the past now as I want to properly study the language first, then attempt to read Japanese text bit by bit. It is obvious that a systematic study of the language requires to learn and memorize all the kanjis' radicals.I hope that you're going to achieve fluency as time passes by; and perhaps when that point of time is reached we can have a conversation in Japanese. It is going to be difficult but yet achievable lol (づ￣ ³￣)づ
Oops. I forgot to hit the reply button before commenting so a new message post has been initiated. Sorry about that. (=・ω・=)
It's fine :PAh, well I sure have no clue what to do with blurry kanjis sometimes lol. Sometimes I manage to guess and recognize a few radicals, but hey I'll try the SKIP for times where that doesn't work aha. For less blurry stuff, when it's on a picture and I can't copy it, sometimes I get lazy and use my cellphone to scan it aha. It came with the app Asahi Kanji. The bigger it is though the better it works.I just went through the radicals before jumping into reading, that's all there is to it ╮(￣▽￣)╭There was a study carried out among university students that showed that there was an average of two strokes missing for more complex kanjis. Imo it's pretty much an art. They have to learn the order however, because when you write quickly, your letters tend to get cursive right? Learning the stroke order diminishes that effect, and people can better read them. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it's going to near unreadable if it's completely off.And yes, it's achievable~. Not necessarily difficult, it depends on how impatient you get aha. Personally I'm fine if it's under 10 years, though that's not to discourage you, I'm just not that always actively into it.
I am really sorry for the late reply. I was so busy that I didn't have the time to visit this website until now. LOL those blurry kanjis are a pain in the neck. Sometimes I try all the tricks up my sleeve but still at least 20 to 30% of them remain unidentified inside of a scanned page. There is a website (it is more than one actually) where you can find a kanji by drawing it (jisho.org for example) but it takes a longer time to find the missing kanji if the stroke order isn't right.Handwritten kanji is another nightmare. Eleven days ago I stumbled upon a handwritten text inside a manga which lasted for several pages. I almost had a heart attack because some of the hiragana and katakana weren't clear; never mind the kanjis because they looked like noodles pinned on a wall. I've heard that before - the part about 10 years - It is possibly correct that this is the lapse of time needed to become a great scholar in Japanese studies but I am pretty sure that advanced reading and communication could be achieved in two years of persistent studying (=・ω・=) ありがとうございまつ (you're hard working so you get the formal treatment lol (=・ω・=) )
Hello Lightasus,Sorry for barging in on you like that. However I remembered you because I read some of your posts last year, on learning Japanese. I've begun a self-study program myself. So what about you? Have you become able to read Japanese without an intermediary tool (such as Google translate or any similar gadget)? If yes, how long did it take you? Arigatô.
Oops, just remembered I hadn't replied because I was too busy at the time and then forgot (￣∇￣")Depends on what you consider being able to read without an intermediary tool. I'd say I can understand half without it, and the other half I have to look for. But then again, there are still words I have to verify in English, and I would say I'm not so far from fluency. There will always be words you'll have to verify, there's always some obscure ones.Mind you, I've taken a break from actively learning it. Other things took over my life in the last year. I will resume it as soon as possible however.But if you need some tips for language learning:1. As a general rule, we learn things better when they are related to our survival or our personal goals. Your brain will just pay attention to it better. So focus on language content that is relevant to you.2. Use the new language as a tool to communicate from Day 1. That's the mistake people make all the time that makes it that someone trying to learn a language may not even achieve fluency 10 years later.If you can't physically go in Japan, throw yourself into forums. Try exchanging with natives. That's what I did on this website 2 years ago, while I was half confident in my English, and my, I've improved A LOT. So much that I surprised myself being pretty comfortable with going through English job interviews!3. So, don't focus too much on memorizing this and that word. Don't be afraid of going through a dictionary all the time at first while trying to communicate or read. Your brain will memorize it better, because you actually use it fro something practical. When you first understand the message, you will unconsciously acquire the language. Much, much quicker.4. It's not about knowledge, especially for speaking. Someone in Japan can have A grades in English, drop in the USA, and find that they understand nothing. It's more like physiological training.5. Be relaxed and curious. Don't stress whenever you don't understand something 100%. Don't focus on being perfect, it'll come without you realizing it. I've first learned English through video games, since French translations were not available were I live at the time, and later I was already able to read and understand. That's because I focused on understanding the information rather than focusing on learning English.Also, if you're one of those like me who are visual learners, you may benefit from purchasing "The Easy Way to Learn 400 Practical Kanji". They basically explain how those 400 kanjis were come to be drawn the way they are today. So you can then begin to link the kanjis to pictures related to the meaning rather than trying to memorize a bunch of lines. I found that helped me have a basis, much, much quicker all of the sudden. I still remember most while it's been a year I haven't really touched Japanese much. Can't unsee it aha.That's pretty much it :)
This is an excellent explanation. I am glad that learning Japanese has worked out for you. Your English is excellent too, I couldn't have guessed that it isn't your native language if you hadn't told me so yourself. I will put your advises into good use. Thank you for your patience and time.
It's nothing ^^. And thanks ~I'm not sure how far you've gone, so in case that can help demystify the whole kanjis which can be seen as the big mountain. I often bring that up to people :3:Kanjis are made up of radicals. There are about 250 of them (not all are used at the same frequency, don't worry too much aha). They "mean" something, but not all can be used by themselves.Like, here's a kanji:繭Copy paste is somewhere else if it's too small lol. But it's kind of complex, right? 18 strokes.But here are the radicals it is made of:The radical grass, 艹The radical "inverted box" or "window frame", 冂The radical thread, 糸The radical insect, 虫繭 means cocoon.Now, sometimes only one radical holds meaning to the kanji. But yeah, what's cool is that you can often guess the meaning by recognizing them in kanjis.And how you recognize them? For me, it was the book I referenced you aha. But learning how they were drawn, much like hieroglyphs, in the first place, and how they were simplified in order to stylize the writing system. Then they also do the same with kanjis by mising them up and telling why as well. Asahi Kanji is also a good app that tests your recognition of the radicals, so I used that as well.When you have learned a good chunk of them, then kanjis suddenly start to all make sense.Now you can try to learn how they're said at the same time, or after. I don't think that after would be too much of a problem, whatever you enjoy most.I find kanjis really fun overall, it's like finally making sense of a coded language. ╮(￣▽￣)╭
By the way, that’s what my own “self-study” program looked like, feel free to take what you want:1.Watching subtitled animes.Recognizing words often used subconciously. If you’ve been watching animes for at least a year, it’s probably enough. B-Baka!2.Learning hiraganasTakes about a day. I used Dr Moku. Same concept, mnemonics, the “can’t unsee” phenomena.3.Learning katakanasSame.4.Learning radicalsGet through the book, tests.5.Learning a basis of kanjisGoes with “get through the book”. Don’t sweat learning a series a kanjis though.6.Start to read, communicate, have at it. Mangas are more friendly than novels, obviously, since there's less text and there are visuals to help understand the context. Use a dictionary and internet as long as you need, you’ll need it less and less as time goes by. Also get through the basics of the grammar, numbers, levels of politeness etc. I don’t have a specific place I can refer you that is in English, sadly. Start to use all of that acquired knowledge by participating in forums, write comments etc.7.At some point you may want to start watching animes, Japanese shows or youtubers without subtitles. You can’t really force it, and communicating in person in Japanese with someone is probably going to speed up when you’re going to be able to do that. Of course, if you can do that, do it as soon as possible. If not, enjoying animes and learning written Japanese with all the grammar and whatnot will probably make it click at some point. It was like that with English for me, at some point I just found out I could manage.Personal advice, don’t waste your time on learning the stroke order. I don’t know about you, but I never really write since I’ve been out of school, I only type, so I don’t see how pertinent it is to learn how to write kanjis in today's world with their specific stroke orders. Too much trouble for not much use. I doubt you’re going to need it either.
Your study program is very similar to mine. However it didn't occur to me to study the radicals because I don't rely on them to look up a character in a dictionary but on the SKIP method which consists of identifying the pattern to which belongs a Kanji character and the number of strokes of each part when the kanji is devised into two. This leads me to comment on the last part of your reply. Indeed, it is less cumbersome to memorize the strokes' order for each kanji but in my case doing the opposite thing caters to my taste because I practice calligraphy in my spare time and I am interested in learning Japanese calligraphy too. Your study program is quite logical; the only disadvantage I have compared to you is that I am not much of a listener. I can read and write for hours but when it comes to films and YouTube videos, I become restless. I can remain interested only for a few minutes hence I need to find some very short videos to watch in Japanese, and with subtitles, on a regular basis. It has been very generous to share your tips and how to's with me. Thank you again for your very much appreciated help and time (=・ω・=).
Ah, well if it's the way you prefer, then it's all good :). Depends on your goals ehe. I'm not too into calligraphy myself, so when they always systematically teach the stroke order I'm kind of not sure of what to do with it aha.The SKIP method I'm not a fan of at all, but I'd be tempted to think that's a matter of one's learning style. I'm very much a visual learner. Btw, not a listener either, but videos get my attention more, obviouslyヾ(❀╹◡╹)ﾉ~. I focus on learning unconsciously when it comes to oral speech, I just enjoy then content and try to understand the meaning.Though the big advantage, with all the radicals assimilated, is that you can better guess the meaning of the kanjis after. I didn't really learn them because of dictionary search, though I do happen to use it with them obviously aha. It came handy to me multiple times, and there's not that many radicals compared to the number of kanjis. But maybe that's useless to learners not leaning that much on the visual memory (I do happen to score very high on that type of IQ), that I can't tell.But if you're comfortable with your program as it is, don't change it, we do become fond of one technique or the other :). Whatever works in order to crack through kanjis aha.
